The death of /vr/ct is the worst thing that ever happened to this board and possibly the site as a whole.
What was it like? I loved Rollercoaster Tycoon 2, was thinking about replaying it.
>>5805323Why the fuck does that 2 week rule even exist? It almost seems solely targeted to kill that general which is even more of a crime because there's fucking nowhere to even talk about these games on the internet that's not a graveyard.Been tackling all the parks I can lately, though I enable early scenario completion
>>5805338Get OpenRCT2 along with the RCT1 map recreations.
>>5805362>Class Action ParkEveryone talks about how we need to go back to the moon, but there's an even bigger scientific accomplishment we need to make possible in the modern age.
>>5805362redpill me on recreations
>>5805371It's the only thing Fiasco Forest deserves to be named.
>>5805373Aside from some weirdness like the Steel Mini being split up into two coasters, and some train types not existing (spinning trains for example) they're pretty much perfect, down to the invention list.If you want to get back into RCT, take a look here. https://pastebin.com/hn8ik9Dh
i always get eyebrow raises for some reason when i list RCT Deluxe / 2 among my top 5 favorite games. great fucking pleb filter. god i miss playing this as a kid
What is the worst park objective and why is it park value?
>>5805396I always wonder what it would be like going to one of those stacked micro parks IRL.>climbing up steps through a super dense jungle of supports that shakes violently every few minutes>the deafening noise of 20 air compressors running at the same time
>>5805409>ride coaster>it's somehow still getting rained on despite being absolutely covered by platforms and bridges
>>5805381i never played rct 1, what am i in for?
>>5805428Play 1's scenarios in 2. 1's missing some pretty important things, namely the ability to change the height of whatever you're placing by holding down Shift, which makes building underground an enormous chore.Aside from that, good scenarios, tons of coaster building, and making fat stacks of money. and maybe some explosions and snapped spines if you dont bank your turns
>>5805428You're playing one of the most autistically made, but simple and simply fun game ever. Everything makes sense and you just try to stay profitable while you build cool attractions and try out new attractions your dedicated research team somehow invented all by themselves.PROTIP: Build two of these, mirrored, directly next to each other, and tell them to synchronize their launch. Customers love it, the coaster costs nothing to build, and it makes tons of cash. Then you can build whatever you want comfortably around the rest of the park.
rct2's scenarios are lol
This park seems like it'd be a gigantic pain in the ass in RCT1
>>5805359>Early scenario completionHoly shitDidn't even know this existedI fucking hated when I finish objectives in year 2 and have to do two years of maintenance bullshit thank you
>>5805396Playing gravity gardens as we speak and don't know about the ratings bullshit hack.
>>5805681Honestly, if your scenario is so poorly designed that i meet the goal in less than 3 months when it's 4 years long, you did something wrong.>>5805685About all I can suggest for park value there is build those coasters that are powered launch, and build a ton of them. Also dont have ATMs and set the park entry price to take all of the poorest guest's money so that they GTFO
>>5805681One other thing you might like is you can flip on a simulation of the ride test while building coasters and the like. Perfect for if you think something's entering a loop too fast, or if the train will lose all momentum somewhere.
>when the two rides researched in a row are just the same ride with a different skin or a worse changeFuck the mini suspended, fuck the 10 Car Ride variants, and fuck the non-Bumper Boat Boat Hires
>>5805716Holy shit this is fucking HUGE thank you.One of my biggest annoyances was constantly starting and crashing coasters on launched mode trying to perfect the speed into inversions cause we all know getting that "barely made it" entrance speed is key to excitement vs intensity. Then I would save the track and then destroy everything and rebuild so I don't get the "Im scared to ride it" criticismI've been playing that game for everything BUT building rollercoasters lately (insane but just shows you how great the game really is) so that tip will change that
>>5805756Here's an example of the simulation in action. Once the "ghost" car hits the end, the simulation starts anew.
>>5805459how do i synch lauch
>>5805760>place the same kind of ride next to it>click "sync with adjacent stations
>when you not only have to research something extremely basic, but have to wait an entire year for it
>>5805779That's alcohol license yo
I always liked to put multiple entrance/exits on rides. The stats always gave me credit for the full length, even though the people were only riding a short while and I could churn vast numbers of people through quickly.
>>5805782Now that I think about it, that makes sense. I've seen people puke like maybe twice in all the years I've been going to amusement parks, yet it's everywhere in RCT. Those little guys are getting fucking smashed.
OpenRCT option to stop my fucking handymen from entering queues WHEN?
>>5805371holy fuck this terrifies meimagine being stuck
>>5805371That's the one from that sketchy NJ park isn't it?
>>5805827Fear not, Anon. As proven with test dummies, part of you will always come out the other side.
>when you make a spinebreaker with 9 g's at one point but the intensity penalty isn't enough to make it unrideableSteel Twisters are busted
>>5805371You can find anecdotes of people getting slammed around in the loop, but nobody ever mentions how it appears to dump you out onto wet concrete instead of an actual pool.
>it's a "can't build high" episode>it's a "can't get rid of trees" episode
>>5806204More of RCT's UK origins showing through.
>>5806209dude FUCK Harmonic Hills
>>5806210I never even bothered with that one because compromising the track layouts for the trees fucked with my realism autism hard.
>>5806215it's absolutely not fun. You have like no ride variety to start and i think you don't even have a place to eat to start with. I'd say just spam 1x3 and 2x2 mazes and motion sims until you hit the goal.
>>5805359Because mods are stupid and lazy.Slow burning threads are some of the comfiest on 4chan.
>>5805696>Also dont have ATMs and set the park entry price to take all of the poorest guest's money so that they GTFOThat's the funniest thing I've read today.
>>5805371It's a wonder that not even more people were injured and killed in those death traps.>>5805887Yes, Action Park, nicknamed Class Action Park by nearby hospitals, because it was ridiculously unsafe and they were involved in dozens of lawsuits.
>>5806487It might be funny, but it's also a viably strategy once you get enough rides up. It's only once i have a ton of money that i might lower it just to keep guests in to meet that goal.
>circus and cooked house lose novelty so fast you cannot even charge the default price in the newest versions of openrctWhy is this allowed?
>>5806641not enough wooden coasters
CONSISTENT RCT GENERAL PLEASE
>>5807564I wish but i think it'd autosage after 2 weeks
>>5807603thisthat rule is fucking stupid and illogical
>>5807661Is there anything that can be done about it? This shit doesn't happen on even slower boards
>>5807603>>5807661>>5807672Couldn't we just have it on /vg/?
>>5806497"Traction Park" was my favorite nickname.
>>5807753It's far too fast a board for a game as niche as rct to exist as a general
>>5807767What about /rcg/ (roller coaster games) for RCT, Planet Coaster, Parkitect, etc.?
>>5807771Even that probably wouldn't be enough, you might have to lump citybuilders into it at the same time since that was a thing here for awhile. Hell, I'm not sure if that would even be enough.
Quick, name the hardest scenario in all of RCT1
What the fuck have I done
>>5807939More real coasters need interlocking loops.
>>5806209>rust everywhere>parts that haven't rusted have faded from gray to whiteJeez, bongs repaint your shit once in a while.
>>5808206Has OpenRCT2 incorporated RCT1 ground styles yet?
>>5808297It's not real rust.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6B7T46WNIk
>play rct a bunch>have only ridden a single coaster in my lifeanyone else know this feel?
RCT spritework is so fucking amazing its just gorgeous to look at.
>>5805919Looks like a wet tarp in a pit to me
>>5808345there's only one rollercoaster in my country and it looks like this
>>5808561>look it up>closed last yearSorry to hear that, Czechbro.
>>5807753The RCT generals originated on /vg/ but /vg/ quickly became too fast for them to stay alive so they moved to /vr/. Best you can hope for is transient RCT generals it seems.
This game is so incredibly nostalgic to play again. My entire family used to play it.
>>5804831Great. Now I want to play this game. Again.Let's see if I actually manage to install it this time, unlike last.
>>5808731Fucking gachashit ruined /vg/. There's like 15 different flavors of that shit there. So many comfy generals got kicked out.
>>5805428Better scenarios and more satisfaction through completion progression. I always hated that everything was unlocked from the get go in RCT2. in 1 you had to unlock scenarios by completing others. Though it lacked several very important design and buliding tools that 2 has. So openRCT2 with RCT1's scenarios basically gives you the best both games had to offer.
>>5805569Lots of parks in Loopy Landscapes were a pain in the ass back in the day without all the improved building tools in 2. I remember the first time i played LL as a kid, it was like a brick to the face compared to the original release and Corkscrew Follies.
>>5807817For some odd reason Mothball Mountain always gave me the hardest time when i was a kid.
>>5808206>>5808324You can use the RCT1 HUD in openrct2. i've always preferred it over 2 for nostalgia purposes.
>>5808770it has tremendous longevity and replay value. The fact that it took up to 3 hours to complete a single scenario most times and there were how many scenarios? talk about a crazy amount of play time.
>>5808506i dunno it was pretty easy for me. Granted the simple ability to build off the ground is absolutely huge here >>5807939>>5808561Damn, the only one I went on was a wooden out and back, that thing looks tiny>>5808916/vg/ seriously needs another page or two
>>5807672Complain to Hiro but I doubt he'll do anything.
>>5809535All An Hiro will do is speak in intentionally broken english to seem "quirky" and then add more malicious ads
>it's a "rains constantly in the park" episode
>>5808186Most that did exist are gone now. Loch Ness Monster is the last I can think of in the US.
>>5810562Why is it so rare? Too hard to do right?
>>5810562There were only ever three coasters that did it. Orient Express and Lightning Loops were the other two.>>5810565Maybe because those smaller loops (and to a lesser extent loops in general) aren't as popular nowadays. Which sucks, those circular Schwarzkopf loops are way more fun than stuff like RMC's "it's a barrel roll but it stops and goes the other way halfway through!"
>>5810565Don't know. But I do know that two trains used to always enter the loops at the same time on Loch Ness (it was a major ride feature), but now the computerized zone/braking system forbids it.I'm sure there are legal reasons they're no longer built, and the computer system preventing certain events is probably the only reason Loch Ness still stands.
>>5810573I can dig a lot of RMC stuff, but their "let's defy your expectations by yanking you in an unexpected way through a loop" shit gets old real fast, especially when they build a coaster that has NOTHING BUT that fucking gimmick over and over (looking at you, Twisted Colossus; they destroyed a classic ride for this?).
>>5810582I'm of two completely different minds in regards to the RMC conversions. I had only ever been on the massively neutered Colossus with the Morgan trains, the airtime hill removed, and the double dip covered up with a midcourse. I'd say Twisted Colossus is a better ride than that for sure, but is it better than 70s/80s Colossus? Unfortunately I'll never now. The fucking phenomenal refurbish Ghostrider got a few years ago makes me wonder if Colossus could've turned out better if they did that instead.I think the RMC layouts are great in general, but the thing is, when a roller coaster is gone, it's GONE. You can read an old book, watch an old movie, listen to an old song, or play an old game as much as you like, but the original layouts RMC converts are now 100% gone, and that's a bit screwy to me.
>>5810575Something to do with loose articles potentially falling onto the lower train, maybe?
Name something in RCT uglier than the "flower power" pathing
>>5804831Do coasters actually bump back up in value after 20 years?
>>5812475From what i've read, it's not a huge uptick, but it does increase in appeal after years of losing value
For the "build 10 different types of coasters" scenarios, do different train types count? Like normal Steel Twister and another Steel Twister with floorless cars would be two different types?
>>5812759I don't think so.
>>5812507It 7x but that still doesn't make up for the depreciation in the 20 years It's useful on park value scenarios since you can reach a point where suddenly your rides start becoming monuments and you rapdily gain park valueBut ofc all scenarios are beatable within 4 years anyway
I reinstalled RCT+AA+LL years ago and got to Karts & Coasters before not really wanting to go any further. Don't know why I just stopped. Was good fun while I played it though.I had this really fucking stupid idea of screenshotting each park's income/expenditure each month, totalling it up into Excel and making fictional accounts for each park so I could see how much I'd spent throughout the game. Might try it again at some point if I can be bothered.
>>5815023Karts & Coasters is honestly kind of a drag. Trees everywhere and not much even ground.
So the best way to play is getting RCT2 off GoG, then using that with openRCT combined with the RCT1 scenarios pack? I need to make me some coasters.
>>5808342who the fuck thought about fake rust paint?if I was there, not knowing about the fake rust paint, I would question their repairman's jobit's like those jeans they sell today: white washed, with holes and wrinkled; wtf
>>5817165pretty much yeah. You might also want to get playermade ride layouts and scenarios
So this game has depth ? I love all those numbers and information on the rides.
>>5805359Feel free to post as many threads about Roller Coaster Tycoon over on New Totse. No weird content killing rules, there's a private image host connected to the site so the pictures will never get deleted, and being a non-chan board threads could go on forever, get created regularly to maintain order, be contests could be contained to their own threads, et cetera. Just keep the threads in Games People Play
>>5810573>Orient ExpressI didn't know my local World's of fun park had such a unique roller coaster outside of the Timberwolf. Interesting. Too bad it's gone now.
>>5811591wjsy yjr svyis; givl
Anyone else like making compact coasters in the coaster designer so that you have something to slap down on March 1st?
>want to reinstall >can't find old game disc that was bought when it first came outAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>5817804it's just not the same as pulling a disc out of that cool jewel case but I'll have to I have no idea where it went and it makes me sad, I've had it since I was a kid
Thoughts on RCT2's expansions?
>>5817821Bit shit really. Doesn't help that RCT2's scenarios overall were really uninspired.Has anyone got that one from years and years ago called NOOB (something like that) where you just start it and everything crashes? Always wanted to play that one again.
>>5805359Meanwhile, /wsg/ has a CHRISTMAS THREAD still going, because hey, fuck logic.The 2 week rule on /vr/ was the most stupid idea ever. The fact this rule also applies to fucking /qst/, where it's para-fucking-mount to keep threads going for as long as possible, is the most boneheaded part of it all.
>>5817836Oh wait, found it: https://warosu.org/vr/thread/3914738In the "/v/ pack".
>>5817843It really does seem more like the result of a petty mod than anything
>>5805475>Nausea rating this lowHow?No, seriously, how
>>5817854The whole concept for the 2 week rule is the peak of lazyness. Officially, this was introduced to prevent people from "invisible bump", a practice that dates all the way back to times when /tg/ had quests on it. Basically, you made a bump post, then instantly delate it, so the counter wasn't going up, but the thread got bumped.Somehow this was used as explaination why the 2 week rule was introduced, despite it affected a bunch of slow boards like /vr/ and a god-damn /qst/, which is the very last place you want to have threads disappearing.
>>5817869Well just don't allow OPs to bump their own threads like some boards already do then. It's bullshit that some boards have threads older than some other boards and yet this happens.
>>5805323>>5805359Oh wow, they're finally banning generalfags on /vr/? I quit the board quite a while ago and only visit semi-regularly because for a while it was just doom, tycoon and crt. Finally you dipshits were shown the fucking door, holy shit.
>>5817906>yeah dude how dare 3 threads out of 100 existYou'll find any reason to shitpost, huh? If you don't like tycoonfags so much, what are you doing in this thread?
>>5817935The entire front page was just shitty generals for a while, which was why I quit browsing /vr/ on a regular basis. There were more than three. CRTs, some sort of sad collectorshit, HoMM and more.
>>5817957CRTs and collector threads makes sense but a thread about video games? If there were dozens of tycoon threads you'd be complaining about that as well, what exactly do you want? Do you seriously expect a forum with many people to only make threads about games you personally like?
>>5817891Like we've already established - lazy mods are lazy. And the best part is, some of them probably no longer even work here anymore, but they left their garbage rules behind
>>5817957... and they are still on, so what you are even japping about? The only difference now is they are on auto-sage on the 15th day and a new one has to be made, instead of continuing the old one.
>build coaster>it's meh since there isn't enough money to build a good one>no reason to tear it down though since it attracts enough people>do other stuff for a while>eventually build another coaster of the same kind>it's actually pretty good>instant hit, crowded>suddenly coaster 1 is empty and I have to lower the price for it to have any visitorsDo coasters have a new ride boost that wears off after a while, or do they eat each other's popularity or something?
>>5818073Coasters lose popularity, but it's nowhere near as fast as other rides. You can pretty much charge insane rates for coasters, i've gotten away with $20 for some of them.
>>5818134>$20>while my coaster didn't get guests at $5 so I had to drop it to $4Huh. Then again, I didn't test how high I could pump the prices of the good one.
>>5818168for context this had excitement ratings of around 9+. They wouldn't pay $20 for very long, but you can get away with much more than you think. unlike the fucking piece of shit cooked house and circus which you instantly have to drop the price of
>>5818179Brand new rides have a bonus factor to them that allows you to charge like 2-3x as much as you'd typically be able to get away with. It only works during the first year though I believe, the ride has to say "built this year" in the stats.
>>5818179>YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO STAY IN YOUR PATROL AREA ENGINEER YOU SO*cans.wav*
>>5818430I actually made a shitty scenario based off of that shit. It's just one that starts you off in debt.
>just build a coaster 1 minute ago>already broken downshit breaks down way too often in this game
>>5818446>Ghost opens his own amusement park>he keeps getting calls from guest relations>it's Tubguy asking where the gay bathhouse is.
>>5818781>it's the main attraction
>>5818774Much like everything else in this game there is a hidden strategy in choosing rides based on reliability, some rides are naturally less reliable than others. You can tweak reliability somewhat but rides are typically the most reliable by default and if you change an option you're making it worse. The exceptions to that is changing a ride to block sectioned mode and changing inspection times. Other than those two things the only way to improve reliability is to build a ride in a different way or build a different ride.One factor the game looks at is how fast the lift hill is vs the minimum speed of the coaster as a whole. If the lift hill is too fast that it is not the slowest part of the coaster the game penalizes you for it.Reverse incline launch greatly affects reliability on the compact inverted shuttle for some reason. The stat goes from 21 to 31 apparently. Powered launch affects reliability as well. The looping coaster has a separate unreliability stat just for powered launch which adds 5 more points to its baseline level. If you add a chainlift to the coaster anywhere that might cause the reliability to plummet.The chairlift's unreliability stat increases exponentially with the speed you set the chairs at. At base speed they are less reliable than a typical rollercoaster but at their top speed the chairlifts are tied with the flying saucers as the least reliable rides in the game.On the other hand mini golf is the most reliable ride in the game with an unreliability of 0 which means its virtually immune to breakdowns. Mini golf has its own potential for optimizations though. I went through the code a few years back and looked at the best and worst rides for reliabilityhttps://warosu.org/vr/thread/S3033835#p3071684This appears to be the current version of the file I was looking at:https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2/blob/a094c5b0ce25d0a6a631024b5486fb7cc76caf5d/src/openrct2/ride/RideRatings.cpp
>>5819223So it wasn't just a RNG quirk that my wooden coasters broke down more often than the junior steel coasters.Huh. Not going to stop building wooden coasters tho, they're fun to do.
>>5819223Another hidden stat which I didn't notice before is upkeep which affects a ride's profit margin. Powered launch and LIM powered launch greatly increase the costs of upkeep which means you make less from rides that use those two modes.
>>5819223>>5819238Didn't know Powered Launches did this. Still going to make them though because you can fit powered launch coasters just about anywhere as opposed to needing a shitty lift hill take a year to climb
>playing thunder rocks>cant place benches or anything on the path i just built across the rocks
>>5811591So what happens here, it's a row of one way entrances and if a customer so much as goes in through the first one he's trapped and have to keep paying ticket after ticket if he wants to go home?
>>5808342>>5817260>fake rust paint>lets trick our customers into thinking our attractions are death traps or otherwise unsafe pieces of shitsWhy?
>>5817995Too bad. I thought they were gone for good.
Well, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 was better imo.Just thinkj in the park inspector.
>>5820345think*i'm using an old keyboard kek
>>5817849The worst part of not having a consistent general is the chance for that scenario pack to disappear. Last time I had to install the pack I had to do it from a random 5-year old reddit post. There's some legitimately fun and cool-looking scenarios there, like Green Hill Zone or the Racetrack park.
>>5820357my park pack's kinda old actually, dont got this one
>>5820384Here's the download link I used: http://www.mediafire.com/file/cl6l7zhlk50du43/v-vg-vr_scenarios.rar/fileAccording to the guy it has a bunch of parks from /v/, /vg/, and /vr/
>move camera with right mouse drag>sometimes it keeps moving after i stop moving and let go of rmb>have to quit the gamehow do i stop this
>>5817821>>5817836>Much like with the first game, two expansion packs were released for Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, which included new rides, facilities, and scenarios. The first pack, Wacky Worlds, was released in May 2003, the second pack, Time Twister, was released in November 2003. Each packs were based around themes and didn't have any involvement from the series' creator Chris Sawyer. Instead both expansions were developed by Frontier Developments, who developed the Xbox port of the original game, and would go on to develop the entirety of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.Well that explains it completely why those two were crap. Shame.
>>5820564some of the scenarios are absolutely pathetically easy. They focus on trying to make them look good when you can just delete all of that shit for fat stacks of cash.>this is what counts as Expert
>>5820604Don't forget the infamous "Robin Hood" level.>The objective of this park is to achieve a monthly ride income of $1,000. Why even bother?
>>5820620I've beaten that level without even building new rides. I've build shop stalls that can beat that amount on their own.Don't forget about the parks that are over 5x longer than they have any right to be solely for padding.
>>5820564To say they included new rides is a bit of a stretch. They were just reskinned versions of existing rides and most of them were prefab rides. I didn't like them because a lot of the rides, scenery, and even the footpaths looked out of place in the game.
>>5820675Neither expansion pack suited the game.
>>5820693It's kinda strange that those expansion packs were so bad when RCT3 itself was actually pretty passable.
>>5820726I can only assume it was due to being the first time they'd tried something new for the franchise.
>>5820675>the Flower Power pathing
Which rating should I seek to max when making a coaster? Excitement? Nausea should obviously be kept as low as possible, but how about intensity?
>>5820761I'd look for a good balance between excitement, profit per hour, and nausea that isn't at Very High. Intensity doesn't really seem to matter as long as it's below 10, but obviously if you can make it lower that's good. Also, your coaster could have 10+ excitement but it wont mean much if it has only 1 train.
>>5820761>>5820789>when you make a coaster as a kid and you think it's MEGA AWESOME but the E/I/N is something like 2/11/9
>>5820796The first coaster i ever made resulted in 2 people dying and me not building non-prefab coasters for years.I'd also tear down coasters if i saw them crash due to a breakdown once in the past. I didn't do very good as a kid.
>>5820761Excitement is what guests want you can't really go wrong with it. Nausea causes guests to puke everywhere and guests avoid rides that are too nauseating.Intensity is the most complicated of the stats. Guests will generally avoid rides with an intensity above their preferred intensity in their personal stats but sometimes guests will ignore their preference a little bit if they're happy and excited enough. Everything up to "very high" can be a good thing in certain circumstances but "extreme" and "ultra-extreme" rated rides will be significantly penalized in excitement and have very high nausea.
>>5820761Adding onto >>5820789 to show off a couple of things.This coaster only has 6 excitement, pretty low for a woodie. But it's more compact than most coasters of its type, has 3 trains, and can charge 8+ bucks a ticket. I've built 9+ excitement coasters that dont have the sort of profit per hour this has, so do not neglect the amount of trains. Not every coaster setup is suited for tons of trains though.But either way, compactness for a coaster can also be something very good to have.
>>5820796Is it possible to make a ride that bottoms all stats but Nausea, which peaks?
>>5821391i mean i think the Space Rings are close enough to that
>>5805323Is that what happened to the Zniggy threads? The levels were almost all completed, and they discovered that the physics might not suit their level design.
>>5805371Action Park is still open. It's called Mountain Creek Waterpark now. Though it doesn't have a looping waterslide anymore.
>New ride researched: Mini Suspended coaster>instantly followed by the variant that has even less capacity
>>5821550I was following that, generally they made a new thread when they hit bumplimit.Stupid-ass project, but funny and interesting nonetheless, I'd love to see it finished.
how do i make my shitty togo standups have more than 4-5 excitement
>>5823935Compact layout, lots of track crossovers, few drops, and more trees than you or your grandmother can handle. This is the best I've gotten out of one of those bastards.
>>5823969I made a compact one in the designer once, and depending on the park, it doesn't even break 5
>>5823969Do the trees actually affect something or are they just for looks?
>this shiti'm so mad.>>5823985scenery affects excitement ratings, depending on the ride you can see drastic increases. Compare an Observation Tower with nothing anywhere near it to an Observation Tower basically covered in bushes and trees.
How many loops through a loop are too many?>>5824265Where's the "build 20 Shuttle Loops" target?
hahahaha oh wow this scenario is shitty.>some coasters aren't meant to be that long, and one is impossible to go that long>the length requirement lends itself heavily to helix spam>vanilla game had you remove each tree individually on a map flooded with redwoods too large for the default scenery remover to remove>the maze is nearly impossible for guests to finish>the pathing layout at the start is absolutely abysmal>infinite money paired with no park rating to worry about means you have no reason to care how shitty your park is to visit>generally you just bumrush the coasters and pad length with no care for aesthetics or actual qualityName a shittier scenario.
>>5824420>Prison of the Damned
>>5824426Hey, if it's a hell park, may as well name it something suitable. the park's in san francisco to begin with so it's already hell to begin with
>>5817859Steel Twisters can do anything.
>>5824451mirin this park layout and those loops, got the scenario on hand?
>>5824452http://www.mediafire.com/file/at8jqldd436whoi/Calypso_Point.sv6/filehttp://www.mediafire.com/file/rlr93obd8ob7id7/Calypso_Point.sc6/fileThe completed park and scenario. I made the landscape just for a sandbox park, so it's not a functional challenging scenario.
>>5805919It was filled with water when actually in use. Here's a video: https://youtu.be/vDHqfhyCbbM?t=496
>entrance fee scenarioI'm barely breaking even here. The new (red) coaster means I can pump up the admission fee, right? It's at $20 now since $25 got me the "worst value park award" and no visitors.How the hell am I supposed to make real money in this.
I did end up finishing the scenario, but only barely. This is what I managed to build by year 3 of a 4 year scenario. Got me just over the guest target with two advertising campaigns.You can build surprisingly good and cheap steel mini coasters if you have a hill like the brown one on the top does. Could've made that one plenty better if I'd had the money.
>>5826760Here's what I'd do.>Slap down a few cheap and shitty rides, raising the entry fee by $1 per point of excitement>check the amount guests spawn with, and jack up the price to the minimum they can spawn in with.>Free Entry ads seem to be a net gain in profit, and are the strongest adI'd say you could have spammed shitty mazes early on. Size doesn't really matter
>build a bunch of 1x3 and 2x2 mazes>profit of over 2k an hour each
>>5818179Could you share the design of the coaster?Or at least tell me if those "stairs" are a ride-down or climb-up?
What's the best way of playing RCT nowdays? Going for full RCT2 or instead Open RCT? And how to get scenarios from the first game into either of those?
>>5827490It's something I call a Ghetto Lifthill. I'm sure it's nothing new but here's what you do.>one piece of track with a chain lift>1 unchained piece instantly after, turning into a steep slope>1 unchained piece after, returning to a normal slope>1 piece of normal lifthillThe train doesn't need to be entirely on a lifthill to be lifted up. Taking advantage of this, you can have shitty looking lifthills that spiral around or turn around, letting you squeeze in a little extra.As for sharing the design, where's a good spot to share it? It's a little late tonight but once I wake up I could post it, although i'm not sure where it'd easily fit.>>5827496>openrct2>rct1 recreationstry this https://pastebin.com/hn8ik9Dh
>>5827498Oh, so it's the "quick" lift. I get it now.Easiest way would be to save the design project, then put it on zippyshare or some other hosting site.
>>5827490>>5827498>>5827501>StairsThe design reminds me of the cheapest (creativity-wise) possible way of making log flume with excellent stats. You make a looooong lift-up, then simply take a turn and go down>two sections down>one section flat>two sections downAnd you continue this way until you reach the bottom. Helps if you use existing hill or something to get the highest possible lift as you only can. Most of the timee is spend on the lift, but since it has such great stats, everyone is happy and throwing cash at you
>>5827498So OpenRCT2, got itAnother question then:Are visitors really using transport rides to get to places (assuming the tracks allow that), or the "transport" part is only in the category's name?
>>5827512It's pretty much in name only. They're made to move guests around, but they won't intentionally ride a ride to get somewhere else
>>5827537If nothing else, you can lead more guests to a specific part of the park, or get more guests off the paths.
/v/ has final fantasy 14 threads every fuckin day, so I see no reason why you can't have rollercoaster tycoon threads. just don't put general in the name and keep it to one thread
>>5804852>tfw modern games would probably just sell off the paintings as an automatic mechanic
>>5827498Different anon, but does OpenRCT2 include ability to pause and do shit when the game is paused? Original version of both 1 & 2 required from you to have the time running as you were building your coasters, which was annoying as fuck.
>>5828796I think there's a cheat in the cheat menu that allows you to do that. Cheats also let you>renew rides>disable brakes failure>mow all of the fucking grass
>>5828820Is there even any point to mowing grass? I was pleased to find out it's automatically disabled from handymen in openrct2, so there's no need to worry about finding that one handyman you forgot to configure in some forgotten corner of the park mowing grass nobody will ever see.
>>5828820>Carefully designing your ride is cheatingThanks, I hate it!
>>5828830Well, brakes failure doesn't really matter if you spam helixes to burn off speed. Still, some people might like it>>5828829It looks better? It's more of a cosmetic cheat than anything
>>5828829It was automatically disabled in RCT2. Apparently mowing grass does nothing except make it look a little better to you. You're better off planting gardens and putting scenery which guests *do* actually appreciate.
>color everything in bright green and purple>get a park awardthanks doc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMO17d8gNYISo what caused this shit?
>>5828830I know this is not what you are looking for, but at least RCT2 gave you an option to design your rides outside of actual gameplay, in a "test lab" (can't remember how the option was actually named). Of course that doesn't take into account scenery, terrain and other stuff, but it's still better than nothing
