Downloading now, Can't wait. Keep up the great work.

Transports are confirmed for early next year Danplayer01 I'd expect thats probably the next update but wouldnt personally expect to see it until towards the end of Jan at earliest

The fans would have loved a junior coaster and a tracked car ride that they could make themselves. This is becoming an app game.

I think the guest animations were improved. I would still like to see family groups and not as many people walking around the park doubled over. However, as coastercrazy19 says, I would prefer junior rides and tracked car rides (go-karts!) that we can create. The flat ride footprints are huge. Still hate the stick up the butt balloons.

Is the animated cutscene at 0:58 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bocRdJ6n88Y&t=58s) in the new trailer present in the game?

Its funny you should say that, I said to someone as soon as I saw the new Flat Rides that they look like they've been pulled from RCT Touch. They're so basic that they actually look like they belong in a mobile game. And the "new" food/drink and souvenir stands....
And also the new Facades. They're not new at all. They've just been re-named and re-themed.

Well I have to say I'm not very pleased with this "update" at all. More content and more things wrong. Been in the game for about an hour and found over 20 errors. 24 to be precise, yes I counted. And took screenshots and soon will be posting a rather extensive bug report. This game is getting beyond a joke. Does Nvizzio actually have a QA team that checks this stuff before it goes out?

Exactly my thoughts!!! I had assumed the tracked rides weren't changeable, seems others have confirmed it...that's really sad. Go-Karts are a must! Yes, almost all flatrides take up too much space (especially the swinging ship). Agree again, the balloons suck. They look unrealistic, and I also want (in addition or replacing the current ones) ordinary balloons like in all the previous RCT games--also with the feature of guests letting them go and floating up, with us being able to pop them. It's small things like this that gave RCT it's charm, but are currently majorly lacking in World.

Based on their recent interview, the game is great and you're likely not being genuine and possibly just a troll/hater/whiner whatever else they want to call you.

Observation: The snowman has no arms. Yes, not all do, but a lot/most do. How hard is it to add in 2 sticks for arms? (Yes, nitpicking I know, but c'mon...)

Question: I was not expecting a new theme this late in development; I had lost hope in that. Does this mean there's still a possibility of more though? Medieval/Fantasy IS A MUST!!!!!! Some more pirate (part of adventure) or space (not necessarily sci-fi) would be nice too, as they don't have a ton of scenery (or any PxP for pirate...things like ports/docks and coastal forts). I also can't recall if we have any Native American scenery for the Western theme, like teepees, buffaloes and such...if not, it's needed. It's not the American West if the cowboys don't have Indians to fight with! I can't recall a scenery piece of a skeleton hanging by a noose from a tree/stand either.

Hope: We really need freeform/PxP versions of the mini-coaster and car rides...like we did in ALL past RCT games. Also Go-Karts, Hedge Mazes, and Mini-Golf courses, as others have asked/begged for countless times.

The new "kiddie" Rides are going fast enough to break peeps necks! while I admire the tenacity of the developers to try to resuscitate this franchise. at least put in some effort to give some realism to this game.

Lmao...I'm also still waiting on the Wooden Coaster railings/walkways (catwalks?) to be fixed. They look so weird with the walkway slanting on curves and those stupid, tiny railings.

Can't wait to see this! Jk, I can lol. I too am happy they're not giving up yet. Even with 2 post-launch updates though, the game is still lacking in so many areas.

The update could really bring the game forward, but since you can't edit the junior roller coaster and the car ride the answer is no.
I don't know why we can build our own roller coasters, but no car ride, even when the model is already made.
So my wish is that for the next update you removing the two new flat rides (car ride and junior coaster) and also the western ride and give us the option to build the track like we can do it already with coasters. Then give us the track design as a blueprint.
Do you want to sell the game or not? Then do what we want.

It´s more like a hint that they plan few of these wannabe updates, but in the end of the day, they do not care much about the game anymore.

Awesome update. Just wondering why their is no character for whimsey like their is for the other themes. Cannot wait to hear more about transport rides and what's to come in 2017.
