A new update has been uploaded and it contains many great new features.
We are pleased to announce that this new build integrates Oculus Rift support. This is a feature many of our Kickstarter backers have been looking forward to, so we set aside time during this development stage to add Oculus support and fulfill our Kickstarter commitment. We sincerely thank our backers for their continued support. To activate Oculus Rift from within Steam, simply right click on Theme Park Studio from within your game library and click 'Properties'. Next click 'Set Launch Options', type in -oculusfullscreen ( for fullscreen mode) or -oculus for windowed mode.
In addition, this build also contains the following new features:
Four new coasters (Giga, Dragster, Floorless, and Inverted)
Animated brakes transport tires, and new LIMs
Multiple trains per coaster
Dynamic track selection (change coaster track type even after you build your design)
Dynamic train length
Advanced Properties Panel
Custom Train Importing
Brake hold time
These enhancements will greatly improve on the quality and realism of your coasters.
Most of the audio has been recorded and over 200 samples created. Audio will be integrated over the next couple weeks. We will also be finishing wood coasters for the final Stage 3 release.
In case you missed it, here is the September Park of the Month by EMC2.
We look forward to continuing to work with you during Early Access and appreciate your support!
Theme Park Studio Team
We are very excited to start rolling out our roller coaster construction tools.
The new Express Coaster Editor allows you to quickly build amazing coasters in minutes. With this power editor you can bend, stretch, twist, and pull rails into almost any shape imaginable/ There is also a specialty segment library for easily dropping in Loops, Cobra Rolls, Helix, Batwings, and more! There is also a full support library allowing you add additional supports of your choosing through a simple point and click method.
Once finished, you can upload your coaster to Steam Workshop, or download coasters from Steam Workshop built by the community.
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, coasters will be released in 3 stages. Coasters are clearly the largest, and most exciting part of Theme Park Studio, and require extra effort to give them the attention they deserve. We wanted to get a copy into your hands, so we broke it up into 3 stages.
This build represents Stage 1 and has the bulk of the functionality included.
Stages 2 and 3 will be released next. Much of the functionality in the upcoming stages is complete, and will be released as we finish.
Also, over the next month additional coaster trains and rail types will be released including:

Stages 2 and 3 will also include Rail Smoothing, POV physics, Multiple trains per coaster, Audio, and Accelerators/Brake objects
Click here for a video tutorial that demonstrates just how easy it is to build a coaster with the new Express Editor:
This new module allows players to build amazing coasters easily and quickly. Advanced users still have access to specific rail position, heading, pitch, roll, tension, accelerator, and brake properties for additional customization.
Both the Express Editor and Advanced Properties panel will allow both the casual gamer and advanced coaster enthusiast to build almost any coaster imaginable.
Thank you for supporting us during Early Access, we look forward to seeing all the amazing coasters the community will create!
