I think it looks quite nice! I like the lighting. I especially like the fact that the supports on the woodie ACTUALLY support the track and don't seem to have many places where they aren't attached to it. Cacti look nice, as do the covered wagons. The queue fence here is MUCH better, it's scaled properly to the peeps. I'm wondering about it's placement, there seem to be a number of gaps on one side and extra posts on the other...I presume that's to follow the curved queue?

The desert rockwork looks good, I hope that they'll also include a matching ground/cliff texture to blend it all together, the 'sand' texture seems a little dull.

Overall, looks really good.

This peep get to represent my feelings of this shot.

Supports on the wooden coaster looks nice. That's about the only positive thing I can say at the moment.

Edit: the texture of the rocks looks good too.

:/ So this is the second Park, that looks good on Shots.. and you took the time to arrange the Camera to fit the Lights, the Time, the View..etc
But you couldn't find the time to take a Video of that? o.O

Don't get me wrong - The Progress since the first Beta is really good and it looks better and better..
It's just... you can't say anything about the action, when looking at photographies.. you need to see it as a movie with all the explosions and stunts..
So.. the 1000th Screenshot can't replace a video, even if it's only a few seconds long!

Great post Nook. Thanks. I like the lighting and the ambient occlusion , but i dont see that much shadows underneath objects. The ao is making up well , but i hope some shadowwork will improve. Looks better and better each day. But there will be still some work to do :) I have no idea how maxed out the cpu is now is and how much room there is still left to notch it up. I also guess the peeps need to stay low poly in order to have a massive park full of them. Great pr turnaround, thank you. I hope matt can sleep again and focus on giving us that hatd promised AAA game we all are dreaming of. Good luck and high five Nvizzio for me please.

It took me some time to notice what was the weird thing about the wooden coaster until i noticed it: why the wooden coaster does not have a handrail?

Here are a RCT3 (http://orig02.deviantart.net/e919/f/2013/114/3/4/rct3__wooden_roller_coaster_by_baltobud8-d62ttby.jpg) and a Real (http://parkthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/DSC04416.JPG) pictures for reference. I just has to type "Wooden Coaster" on Google to find it out...


I guess, at least we are not seing more vegetation and lakes...


EDIT: Just noticed after zooming at max that there IS a handrail, it's just a bit low.

Looks alright I guess... the peeps still scare me. Was really hoping the wooden supports would be much more realistic.

Notice how the bottom right of the screenshot says "development build." Shouldn't it be past that stage if the game is coming out next month?y

Nice! I agree regarding the sand texture though. I'm glad to see there are a few more peeps here than in the last few shots.

joris416
02-22-2016, 09:35 PM
Awesome shot here! This one really shows progress: Nice textures, scaling issues seem resolved and this shot shows a lot more decoration than just vegetation as previous shots did. Really happy with that, limited scenery items was one of the things I was getting afraid of. Peeps, although scaled a lot better, still seem a little bit clunky or unoptimized, but I'll consider that a work-in progress.

Definately looking forward to see more stuff like this :)

Exactly. Pictures are nice, but again, how long is it going to take to get some info on the non-visual game play elements? Simulation, economics, management, staff, peeps needs, ratings, etc. is still mostly a giant question mark. I don't expect to be given all of the information in great detail all at once, but it's time to begin releasing some of this information.

What are everyone's thoughts on the paths being raised above the ground? Its something I notice in every shot and it bothers me. I'm sure it'll be something that I'll learn to deal with, but that hasn't happened yet :rolleyes: I guess I just prefer it to be flush with the ground like in previous games.

Exactly. These screenshots don't tell us a thing about the gameplay and rather obviously, that's the most important part of any game. I don't think it's unreasonable of us to actually want to see what features are in this game and how they work.

"We are deep into the optimization of the game and have a few tasks left before we can announce the release date. Our next blog will talk about optimization and those tasks we have left."

You won't give us in game videos and haven't even spoken about park management. This talks like you have nearly finished the product and very close to releasing it.

Making me very, very nervous.

coaster_tog
02-23-2016, 01:41 PM
optimization is the VERY last thing you do

You dont do optimization and then add something else or change something as you then need to do full optimization AGAIN

This means that the game should be read now, but as "The Real Sawyer" says we have not had beta 2, a live stream, nothing about park management no road map for adding the features missing at launch

So i'd FULLY expect a barebones steam early access title trying to beat "The other game" out of the trap

The wooden fences still make me nervous too. The gaps are uneven in-between the individual pieces, and there are some pieces that are very long, making it inconsistent. I'm just being nit-picky at this point.

Greetings Everyone!

We are dropping in this evening to show off another park. Using the western-themed Outlaw Canyon we showed yesterday, we wanted to have a shot in the daytime to accent some shadows! Plus the glorious sun halo is a nice treat as well!

Enjoy and hope you all have a great evening!

How about pointing out postives too? lol just because a few trolls like to post negative things all the time doesn't mean you need to too. Don't fall into the trap! It's a game!

So how about some positives:

The peeps are way better

They have colored shirts, pants, different shoes and it looks like animations


Lens flare! weeeee
Western plants. Very cool
Picnic area?
Western scenery to make the theme come together

Hahah no worries. Its just crazy. We have asked them to put up more shots and they did. And then a few users have taken it upon themselves to only point out negatives and not even postives. I didn't want you to fall into the trap!

As a whole I think this game is shaping up to be great. They have just showed us two environments! Its awesome! Look at the creativity.

I second what has already been said. Everything looks decent apart from the ground texture which looks rather dull and out of place with the much more detailed rocks on top. Nookriot, will the forces that be allow you to confirm what we are all suspecting, that flat rides won't be recolourable?

And I don't know why I didn't notice this earlier, but why aren't the shadows parallel to one another? It's like the sun is a spotlight a few hundred feet away rather than a star millions of miles away.

I'm just really happy that my only concerns right now are one texture and some shadows! It really feels like we're getting close.

I think they look badly outdated to be honest. They might have been ok about 5 years ago but by todays standard they really don't look that good.

The shadows look better in this shot then in previous ones though and that sun glare is great.

HAH! Good catch. Looks like there are 2 peeps coinciding with one another. Just needs some 'optimization' and everything will be super awesome!!!:cool:

Also, why is it that peeps walk with their hands so high in the air? Like the one in the green and blue shirt all the way to the right. And if you look at the guy just above him near the 3 covered wagons, it looks like he is hugging the air! Either that or doing some weird gang sign. :p

Hmmm, that's not good. That needs to be attended to. Peep fusion was an issue mentioned many times when people listed what they didn't like about RCT3. I'd expect it to not occur on a quality game at this date.

02-24-2016, 07:03 PM
Yep there are some serious issues with peeps and I suspect Atari are struggling with them. It seems to be the last item they have considered when is should have been the first. I hope they can get over this and start making the game look and feel how we expect.

I agree, it doen't look a million miles away from RCT3 quality and we are 10 years further on. Expectations are for something better not a republishing of the same package.

dwwilkin
02-24-2016, 07:07 PM
Why should Peeps have been the first?

I think that peep Pyschlogy is much more important than how they look. They could look exactly like they do in RCT (1) and I would be happy. I just want them to think and act as if the 16+ years in advancement of AI is present.

I think the first thing that is important to work on is the Coaster, especially since the are trying this node system. Then once they know that works, go for the terrain. Just as if you were building a park.

Yep there are some serious issues with peeps and I suspect Atari are struggling with them. It seems to be the last item they have considered when is should have been the first. I hope they can get over this and start making the game look and feel how we expect.

I agree, it doen't look a million miles away from RCT3 quality and we are 10 years further on. Expectations are for something better not a republishing of the same package.

I agree in that the guests are something that, whatever they did, is one of the things they considered less important, and as such, developed them later in development. I won't use the word 'final', for we do not know if it really is the final thing. Maybe they need to work on the management part as well, before starting to optimize the game.

Yeah, the more I look at that shot the more I just see an RCT3 with mods enabled. It doesn't really look like the 2015/2016 RCT game I expected it to be. Nothing really stands out.

Looks a lot more cartoony than all of the other screenshots we've seen too, which doesn't really bug me but I though the developers were going for a realistic look.

Optimization implies that they're done with development and just working on ways to make the game run better before release, right? The game is still scheduled for release next month so they should definitely be at that stage by now.

But I agree, just from this picture alone I can see that there's still a lot of work left to be done.

Right! I know, and I agree with that. Optimization really is one of the final phases of a game, but the latest screenshots do indicate that a lot of work needs to be done before optimization can begin. They should be at the optimization stage, yet, it would be better for the game if it wasn't, and that they would work on fixing all of the issues that others have given feedback on. We'll see next month what's going to happen...

Definitely. I'm kinda hoping they just stick to next month; this game is gonna need at least another year if they try to fix everything that's currently wrong with it and add all the missing features. And we both know what will be out by that time...

RCTW would benefit from more development time, technically. I don't know if that also counts for profitability of the game, considering something else that is coming soon.

Sadly I'm finding this too. At first, I saw something that I liked with each screenshot but the more I look at them, the worse they look. Graphics might not make a game but it would be nice if it at least looked like a game from within the last couple of years.

Let's hope so. It would be great to have a video of the latest build of the game. If they do release a video, I really hope for the best that we won't be disappointed with more 'major bugs' that are due to design problems and such. I hope such a video will show us the game is running nicely in the latest build.

I am aware that if no video is released, the game may not be ready for it. Which would imply that the game is also not ready for release...

Hope for the best.

What I notice more and more: all the peeps are pretty skinny! It is so strange because life is so different. I hope to see some more diversity in the game. People in real life have so many forms and shapes. Reminds me of the android ad:

I suggest tue team should invest some of the AAA game development money to rent one of these cool motion suits to bring some real life motion into the peeps.

I agree. The five shots in the other thread showed that they actually made some improvements in the track, it looked much more like a proper B&M. People assume that if it's in the background it's low-quality and intentionally hidden but I don't think that's true.

Can you tell what type of track is showing on the far left, just beneath the lift hill? It looks like the lift hill of another ride but it cuts off in an odd way and doesn't look like any track I've seen from the game.

The top comment posted on that Facebook post:


Well, seems evident by now no matter what anyone says or does, Atari is going to be Atari. We ask for video, we get boring pics. We ask for details, we get hang in there. We ask for release date, we get soon... So, Atari, Planet Coaster early release is coming out in LESS than a month! Keep on ignoring us and watch how fast your game tanks. It's currently circling the bowl as I'm sure your aware of. Planet coasters developers do q&a with us. You don't. Seems you just don't care about anything we ask for. As you see people here are at their boiling point. Yeah you have a few fanboys her and there sounding like you pay them, but the overwhelming theme here and your forum is people are abandoning your sinking ship. I just can't wrap my mind around how you do nothing. Just keep pissing us off with your new moderator once again not listening and doing what he wants. I believe it comes down to you beating Planet Coaster to their early access. If you don't, I'm sure your bank isn't going to give you buckets to keep bailing that water that keeps getting deeper. Atari is really a pathetic developer who just does not possess the necessary skill set to deal with this ongoing problem. Now get ready for the minority fanboy rebuttal.

They really need to make some type of announcement.

+Ground texture looks good.

-The cacti are too tall.
-The ice cream shop looks silly and out of place. Same with the drink/burger on top of the stalls.
-The Ring of Fire flat rides looks out of place since we can't recolor them.
-The peeps still look weird. What is the girl in the bottom right doing?
-Some peeps are still missing shadows.
-Those wooden coaster supports... what?

The thing that worries me the most is that Atari posted this screenshot and didn't even see just how bad it is...that's just unbelievable.

Not the park itself, but some of the content.

For a game that they have been bragging about how 'realistic' it is...look at that ugly-ass crap on top of those stalls. HOW can you not see how bad that looks? Look at that ridiculous looking, out of scale ice cream shop...WHERE have you ever seen anything that nasty in the real world? It's HUGELY out of scale, the opaque windows that hide that there's nothing inside? The fence around the Fireball flat ride? It's at a peeps head height...exactly what good does a fence that over-scaled do in the real world? Exactly HOW does that keep any peeps out of harms way? That issue has been pointed out since the beta MONTHS AGO and it STILL isn't fixed? The railing on that wooden coaster? What, it's to keep cat's and small rodents from falling off? Because it's about ankle height on a peep. As for the peeps themselves...well, it's been said they were being worked on, soI guess you still have a LONG ways to go yet?

The pyramid in the background? HUH? It's not the pyramid in a western themed area that bothers me so much, or the fact that we don't even have an Egyptian theme that I'm aware of, it's how that pyramid makes that huge "one-size-fits-all" park entrance stand out like a sore thumb...and I actually like that building, it just doesn't work for every park and it's the ONLY park entrance we've seen.

I just don't get why no one at Atari or Nvizzio seems to have noticed any of this stuff when it's glaringly obvious on these screens? I'm seeing this one getting picked apart at multiple sites mercilessly, why would you show a screen that illustrates plainly so many of the problems there are? The even better question is why some of these problems are still showing up FOUR MONTHS after they were seen in the beta?

Is everything bad? No, not at all! There's a great many things seen that I like, and even more that, while they aren't 'perfect', they aren't in any shape or form 'bad'. There is obviously huge potential in this game.

But with a game that you are hinting will be ready for possible release "soon", I'm just not seeing it. There's some glaring problems that either you're blind to, or are willfully overlooking.

I've been trying to be more positive about this game lately, I'm not opn the 'other' games bandwagon, and I really appreciate the increased presence and communication, but that last screenshot? Wow. Very disappointing. Perhaps that's why the beta won't be until the last minute...

Ok, so let me point out the good and bad things about the screenshot:

+ Paths seem to be much more flexible than in beta
+ Glad to see something new, even if it's completely out of place like the icecream shop
+ Western themed stalls look detailed, but ruined by the oversized roof burger and drink.
+ Pyramids? What the...?
+ Wooden coaster crossing itself improved, now tunnels are just a cut-off

- Wooden coaster looks extremely unrealistic, handrail should be part of the support structure, also look at how supports are built over a small concrete basement (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2714/4145197573_7e8e20cd74_m.jpg) irl (However, i can live with bad wooden coasters, i don't think that should be top priority)
- Rides not recoloring almost confirmed now
- Park entrance also seems out of place
- Ground texture looks good at short distance, but plain from far...

Just watching in the background, reading all these comments. Nothing new except the same complaints, screenshots full of out of scale stuff and the wooden coaster supports and fence is nothing like what a real wooden coaster should look like. Time is running out for Atari, if they want a decent game for release at the end of March. It's too late to start rethinking about changes, everything should have been put right by now.
I'll take a back seat for now and keep watching.

I'm not seeing scaling issues anywhere. I think people just like saying that at this point. Some of the fence planks are head-height? You know where else you'll see fences that are head-height? Real theme parks. I remember the fence I'd use to go into the "employee areas" was over a full head taller than I was, and I'm 6'1".

dwwilkin
02-27-2016, 04:11 PM
Why is end of March so critical? I think it was a mistake to add dates to this product. Nvizzio may not have been realistic in what they told Atari they could finish the product by, or Atari may have been pressuring. Perhaps in august getting ready for Pax and seeing that Nvizzio turned in a Coaster Builder, and a Terrain mod they didnt have a lot more work.

But we as a community tore apart the Coaster Builder and I suspect the Terrain tools have received the same abuse. I know that in the Nerd video some time was spent on the water and making a waterfall but others pointed out that you couldn't. We've talked so much about the Coaster Builder I forget a lot of what we criticized on the Terrain though I hated the Sequoia trees and they becoming spikes as you zoomed out. I remember that.

My point though, is that the game was clearly not ready as I said then, for a Christmas release. We really have not seen anything on playing the game, the scenarios, this campaign. Now many here like to build in Sandbox, but I spend my money, and I want to play the scenarios through to the end before I do sandboxing. That is what i want for my $50 and I want the hours I put in to be justified. At least 30 hours of gameplay for that kind of money.

With so much announced that will not be in the game, (Log Flume) I wonder if not giving more time to make these items in the game, and if Nvizzio needs a new contract for the items that really make RCTW a complete game, they should get it, and no 4th developer please, If this game comes out in September2016 but has everything, 80+ flat rides, Piece by Piece building, interactive UGC (does UGC come animated so we can have ride animations ala RCT3?) Dark Rides, Water Rides, more accurate peeps, less memory requirements... Then we should go for it.

And March, that is 1st Quarter, End of April if the end of the Early 2016

Real theme parks. I remember the fence I'd use to go into the "employee areas" was over a full head taller than I was, and I'm 6'1".

The fence in question is a simple curved rail - there's nothing else to it, and yes, it's at about head height. A simple rail at head height does WHAT exactly, what is it's purpose as a fence? And no, you won't see such a thing at a real theme park.

You really don't see that that ice cream parlor isn't the size of a whale? Really? Look at the railing on the wooden coaster...it looks to be all of maybe a foot tall. You won't see that in a real theme park either.

So no, people AREN'T "just like saying that at this point", but perhaps you just like not seeing it at this point?

Very much agree. That 'other game' is coming out no matter what Atari does, so why not wait and put out a full AAA game worthy of the RCT name? Yeah, people will gripe that it's delayed, but people are going to gripe if the game isn't very good either...

I think the grippers still will outnumber us waitforbetter Peep Managers, but since December, I think there has been a shift and there are for more us Waitforbetter than before. How many others of you Waitforbetter are out there?

It's probably just me, but I'm not thrilled about these screenshots. I don't know if it's because low resolution or low graphics, but it seems a little bit blurry or not perfectly sharp and awesome... It missed something.

Perhabs with optimization they make to the game, it will be incredible, but I'll wait to see some ingame footage to make my mind about this game.

I think that's just because of the huge resolution pics are taken, you can barely appreciate this blurriness unless you zoom in at max at the image.

Well isn't it possible to get us a live stream of 30 minutes off real ingame footage ? i know you can arrange that but we are all waiting for something like that.

I know you do great work here now showing us everyday a screenshot. but still can't believe the game isn't ready to show off in real time ?

It is getting time to show some real footage ... "Soon we can ..." isn't a true answer offcourse. I know the job of nooki isn't easy but his force is the comunity to get something donne over there.

i do like the screenshots until now so i hope the have this week more real footage that is moving.

I am indeed happy!!

I can imagine the discussion:

"But we left the ketchup on all the other stalls!!!"

"No. we have to draw the line somewhere guys, no one will believe the peeps need ketchup with a t-shirt"

"Ok, realism, so will the peeps wear the t-shirts they buy"?

"Pfft, no! They can barely walk, they can't put t-shirts on. Anyway, their original clothes are already fused to their skin".

I hope it's more than the guys who turn up at the show get. Sure, they paid an entrance fee - but the guys on this forum have waited over a year since paying. Shouldn't the pre-order community get the most out of anything Atari have to share? If they let people who turn up on the day play, shouldn't they let their actual loyal customers play?

I never quite understood that stance: the beta testers got a whole weekend to test out the coaster builder freely in their homes. People this weekend will get to play the game for a few minutes while Atari reps breathe down their necks. It's not a free unlimited preview, it's an advertisement.

The point is that they're getting the one thing the pre-order community are screaming out for - access to the game as it is today. Even just a glimpse.

Don't ever forget that the initial pre-order drive came with promised beta access. When they cut this down to just two beta weekends people were generally pretty decent about it. Then it transpired the first beta weekend was riddled with bugs that they really didn't need a public beta to uncover... then the second beta weekend was delayed with a promise to return the next month.. and now 2 months later no word. People were encouraged to buy early for something they never got. Surely you can see that now giving other people the chance to have access (any access, on whatever terms), above giving their loyal pre-paying supporters access is like red rag to a bull? It's morally appalling. Why should anyone get access before the paying customers that were promised it?

Casiquire
03-01-2016, 07:58 PM
Because they're not getting access before paying customers. Paying customers got access months ago. And the second beta hasn't been officially cancelled either.

Deuce
03-01-2016, 08:25 PM

It doesn't matter!! The whole point is that people were encouraged to pre-order on the basis they would get access first. The expectation was always that they would get access first throughout the process - why else would anyone pre-order a game? It's not as if digital copies are going to run out and you have to wait on release day.

I never said the second beta had been cancelled - I said it was promised, then delayed and promised later the next month - then that promise was broken and no word since. That is appalling.

Paying customers should get access first. The only reason they're giving access to a small group at the show here in the UK is that they can contain sharing of what people see, and they want to see how bad the reaction of that small group of people is. That's it.

Casiquire
03-01-2016, 08:45 PM
Why else would people pre-order? So they don't have to fly to London to play for three seconds. I never assumed that pre-ordering meant literally nobody would ever see anything before I do. I assumed I'd get the game when it came out plus maybe a goodie or two, which is exactly what I got.

Beta access

Deuce
03-01-2016, 09:13 PM
Beta access

How is that a goodie? They reluctantly gave you brief access to a small part of the game under the guise of being a valued beta tester - but in reality the bugs that existed were both alreadly very obvious to the developers, and also sufficiently severe to make enjoying the beta very difficult.

And you're telling me that because you got that months ago, now people that turn up at an even should get access to a much broader portion of the game whilst you get nothing?

And what about the kids that saved up to pre-order expecting a second beta? How do you think they feel knowing they can't even get an update on when it might be but that others are playing a recent build?

Casiquire

what improvements did you see? One thing I can say is the coaster train seemed to move more realistically (apart from the jointing issues) than in the beta. That looks tweaked perhaps.
