Thread: First Person ride ?

  1. #1

    First Person ride ?

    I know the engine of rctc is ages old. But I was wondering if it could be possible to add a first person view when u follow a rollercoaster train.

    What do u think about this idea ? And maybe a dev sees this and could answer the question ^^

    That's impossible, it's not a 3D game. It uses 2D sprite graphics.

    I think with modernen experience and such a high quality team it should be possible to create a "fake 3d" effect.

    Try making a first person view from just Google Earth. It's impossible.
    Hm yeah sounds logic...

    But even recreating everything in a old Duke nukem 2/3d style would take long.

    But yeah guess that would be to complicated for just a remade game :/

    But I would be really interested in what a development would say to this!

    I cant remember where I saw it but there was an interview with Chris Sawyer a while ago, not long after RCTC was released where he stated they would not be looking to add any additional features.

    Naw to sad :/ because these games are still the best they ever created . More features would make it even better!
