Hello Tycoons,

Welcome to our first post-release update of RCTW, and thank you to all who have been playing and building parks since launch. In this update we have a plethora of fixes and optimizations to make the RCTW experience even better!

Firstly, we’re excited to add a feature that many tycoons have requested: No collision on scenery assets! Now you’ll be able to place scenery items exactly how and where you want them. We can’t wait to see what your peeps will encounter in your new parks. Remember to share your new creations via Steam Workshop and utilize the enhanced creativity that this brings.

Secondly, we are making the Egypt Piece-by-Piece pack available to all players, while also adding a ton of new pieces to bring even more life to your Egyptian -inspired creations.

We’ll be rolling out another update before Christmas that will bring some fun new content to the game along with more bug fixes and polish.

In the meantime, read on for details of the contents for this latest patch along with our full bug list.

Cheers,

Team RCTW

It took them a year to fix one ride so you might be waiting a while.

That bullet point was a error on our part - those assets work fine!

The new egyptian pieces definitely looks good.
But I really hope next priority is to fix the content already there like the unrealistic as well as missing animation on the flat rides.

Same. I don't think a little Christmas content would hurt though, like they did for Halloween. Let's also get the recolorable option for flatrides already! Idc if it's something hard to do/will take a long time as I saw something similar said by a dev in a stream. Just get as many people possible focused on it, and get it done. It's ridiculous that we have to have all our flatrides look like clones. This goes for movable entrances/exits too.

I'm not one that makes a complaining post often. But it seems that this update caused quite a few items gone missing from my game.

As example: instead of an added pxp Egyptian theme, I only have the general theme ingame now to build with, the other themes are not there anymore.

Seeing no one else so far has encountered it, I assume it has to be on my end. I'll do a fresh install this weekend and get back to you if that solves it.

Yet another "update" that's brought more content and more problems. Glad to see they are keeping with the trend of adding content, fixing very little while creating more problems to the game.

Deathtome, can you show us what you are working on? I really liked your park that was showed in the livestream by Nook. That park just showed how much you can do with RCTW. And now with no collision it should be easier to make things like that.

i have added to this park since these screenshots, but they are only a day old. Also I have been playing through the story missions. I'm currently on mission 26 or map 3 mission 6 however you want to look at it.

it's got ugc your just not seeing it :D

Well, I know a lot of people complain about the entrance area being so big and they always say there isn't any way to place stuff on the big entrance area.

Very nice job deathtome! I'm gonna take some inspiration from this next time I make an entrance area. I am one of those who have trouble working with the wide entrance to make it look good.

What's going to be included in the next update? I'm hoping for a nice Christmas update with maybe a entirely new theme pack?

Why was I banned from talking in General discussion. If you want to cover up the lawsuit then....... well you cant. Ban me if you want but everyone knows Atari is being sued and you treated Frontier poorly. I have zero respect now and haven given up on this game.

Really shows again what kind of company this is and that they dont give a ****.

Yes they do not give a **** about their players. They were the idiots to produce the game and made a worse name for themselves and now look what has happened. This lawsuit shows they are criminals for unfair compensation

Perhaps if it was posted in the RCT3 General Discussion forum, there would be absolutely zero reason to have the thread removed. Although, I doubt it would make a difference and would get deleted anyway. Regardless, the topic is not a bannable offense, and the users who were banned should have their infractions revoked.

Moderation here has been so questionable, nobody seems to care if posts are off-topic anymore. Hell, even magicart87 is still listed as a moderator for these forums (towards the bottom of the page) despite relieving his duties months ago. I've yet to receive a response from Nookriot as to why he gave me an infraction for no reason months ago. Now people are being banned with no reason given.

I highly suggest whoever is responsible for these bans should re-read the forum rules and guidelines.
