Post-Release Update #1

Hello Tycoons,

Welcome to our first post-release update of RCTW, and thank you to all who have been playing and building parks since launch. In this update we have a plethora of fixes and optimizations to make the RCTW experience even better!

Firstly, we’re excited to add a feature that many tycoons have requested: No collision on scenery assets! Now you’ll be able to place scenery items exactly how and where you want them. We can’t wait to see what your peeps will encounter in your new parks. Remember to share your new creations via Steam Workshop and utilize the enhanced creativity that this brings.



Secondly, we are making the Egypt Piece-by-Piece pack available to all players, while also adding a ton of new pieces to bring even more life to your Egyptian -inspired creations.



We’ll be rolling out another update before Christmas that will bring some fun new content to the game along with more bug fixes and polish.

In the meantime, read on for details of the contents for this latest patch along with our full bug list.

Cheers,

Team RCTW

FEATURES


Powerful Building Tools:

  • Innovative 3D Coaster Editor: Easily create the coolest and wildest coasters imaginable with our best track editor ever! Using our spline-based editor, tracks can be fully manipulated in 3D for the first time, allowing you to create any shape you can dream up.

Expansive Customization Support:

  • User-Generated Content Tools: For the first time, you will be able to create any item you want in any 3D editing program that works with Unity, and import it into the game for everyone to use! Our robust Steam Workshop integration lets you quickly and easily share your UGC creations with the entire RCTW community!
  • Multiple Maps and Themes: Choose from different environments – forest, deserts, tropical islands - and theme options (Western, Sci-fi and more!) to make each park unique.

Next-Generation Simulation:

  • Brand-New Progression Mode: Experience an exciting new way to play with our mission-based campaign system. This progression mode features dozens of engaging and increasingly tricky missions over 3 world maps, with multiple objectives and playstyle options. As you complete these missions, you’ll be granted Research Points, which can then be used to unlock over 100 new scenery items for use in your Sandbox Mode.

  • Responsive Environments and Guests: Create themed zones in your park! Placing different themed objects near your rides will increase their attractiveness to certain peeps, changing game play dynamically.
  • Advanced Physics Calculations: The coasters in RCTW use a more complex physics simulation than any previous game in the franchise. This simulation allows for amazing designs and a lifelike riding experience. Build a coaster that stays perfectly on its tracks or teeters on the brink of disaster; just be careful or your coaster may jump the rails!
  • Ride Every Coaster: Hop into the front seat of a coaster and ride what you made yourself!
