Dear Tycoons,

First, thank you for the great response on our first major update, we are very happy to see that you are enjoying the improvements and are pleased with our direction – now it’s time for more!

Although our plan is to do major updates along with smaller hotfixes as needed, today is a bit of an exception. So here it is, via a "mini" update – the Typhoon Ride!

NEW CONTENT

New Typhoon Flat-Ride Available Now!

As promised, we have been working hard on our Typhoon Ride, we now feel it is ready to share, so we’ve decided to push a small update for the weekend just for you. Enjoy the ride!

IMPROVEMENTS

Animations
We have seen a ton of feedback and video of peeps not sitting in rides correctly. With this update, we are addressing some of these concerns while we continue to work on additional improvements to the system to make it better:


Age positions: Peeps now adjust their position according to age to avoid clipping;
Peep AI: Peeps are now moving at all times; yes, they were sometimes flocking at the entrance of the park with some thoughts, and this has been fixed.


FAN HIGHLIGHT
Yesterday, we also showed off an AMAZING park being made by one of you using the latest update– community member – Maxfreak! You can see the full gallery on our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1029515940473910.1073741830.121146194644227&type=3).

Going forward, we are going to work with our community (https://forum.rollercoastertycoon.com/forumdisplay.php?1-RollerCoaster-Tycoon-World) to make sure we highlight more awesome creations so be sure to join in on the fun on our forums.

Thank you all for the awesome feedback on yesterday’s update and graphical improvements (we put too much emphasis on performance for our initial early access release; we are working towards the integration of our higher resolution assets – we are humbled by the reviews) – we know the visuals still aren’t where they need to be, we are working on this, but we are glad you all like the direction we are going in!

To better illustrate the direction of our first update, see these additional before and after screenshots:

Oh I second that. Yes please. Although I do hope the peeps aren't quite as obsessed with the pools as they were in RCT3. I absolutely love the Typhoon ride, that thing is just awesome, I love the detail. Now I am off to check out this park you are all talking about by Maxfreak. Sounds incredible and it is so wonderful when people support and appreciate the hard work of talented folk. :)

Edit: Maxfreak that really is a beautiful park, I am so glad it was highlighted and brought to our attention.

I liked the pool obsession because it was short-lived. I couldn't make a pool and expect steady income, I had to keep coming back and expanding, so it wasn't like a cash cow.

Thanks for new content, but please fix your game first before you making new content. Technical is the game currently in a critical phase. Memory leak, lagging, crashes, animation failure, shadow failure and more. Please take the priority on repairing the game and after then with new content.

Oh I didn't actually mind the pool obsession but it always seemed so predictable, put in a pool and its always packed all the time, lol.
Also I am sure the developers have their priorities straight, I have faith in them.
