Thread: Seasons

  1. #1

    Red face Seasons

    More season realistics...

    - winter with snow and ice, the people are wearing warm clothes, ice skate attraction, snow is falling
    - spring with many flowers and smoky days
    - summer, very hot, people wearing not much clothes and swimmingpools
    - autumn, leaves are falling down from trees und the darkness is turning faster on...

    Dont forget the raining coats and umbrellas if its raining

    This would be very cool!
    Doubt they will be able to add this if they haven't already though.
    (If they still launch in q1 that is.)

    Maybe you would have to adjust for the wind of autumn, then close certain rides in winter? It would be cool!

    Verry cool idea

    Maybe it's nice that the seasons are diferent. That in warm maps in the winter it's colder, but there isen't snow.

    Something like this, i would like as an option you select while playing, or hard coded to a particular scenario for instance. What if you are opening the first Alaskan Park, or one in Honolulu where you might have a tropical rainstorm.

    Perhaps if there was time to consider, a world map could be displayed with locales that give geographic and climatic conditions to the base park you have, or a series of such templates (either included, or as the "World Expansion Pack" that also would have locality themeing perhaps)

    These two ideas combined would be perfect!

    In certain countries, the season could vastly effect how the park operates. Giving higher popularity to the indoor attractions and closure of water rides in the ice cold winter, Etc.


    There was a post made two days ago about having seasonal events too, which would involve the OP's idea.

    Variations in crowds during peak seasons. Busy during the summer months and slows down during fall and picks up in December for it to die out until spring.

    Crowd fluctuations and variations in profits are very real factors parks have to deal with.

    Seasons?

    We need a sticky post about seasons. Primarily because of these posts:

    https://forum.rollercoastertycoon.co...g-Hours/page13

    https://forum.rollercoastertycoon.co...rticle-Effects
    (found some season-related potential here)

    https://forum.rollercoastertycoon.co...Pass-Fast-Lane

    I feel as though we need a sticky for the topic of seasons, as too many people have too many ideas relating to it.


    Do you want seasonal changes? Why or why not?

    I voted Yes, only because I would enjoy the visuals. But We really need more info regarding what constitutes a "Season" and how it would affect gameplay.
