Improvements to Coaster Support System

Hi everyone,

From our official forums here:

As promised by our beloved Sam Denney in yesterday’s livestream, here’s a sneak peek on what’s coming in a small update next week regarding the coaster support system.

The team has been working really hard to make improvements to the current support system; the new system is more comparative to real-life coasters and coaster engineering, as well as being aesthetically pleasing!

Below we have a side by side comparison of the old and new system, so you can see exactly what will change regarding the coaster supports. Top image is the old system, bottom image the new one!

A comparative overview of the global support changes.

New support just on vertical drops/rises.

Dive coaster has its own new vertical support.

New diagonal supports just for specials.

Sloping supports stay facing the same way when ascending and descending.

No more 'Goal post' supports on track one variants.

Dog-legging now only occurs 100ft from the ground.

New support just for vertical loops on inverted (Rival, Boa, Stingray).

it’s worth noting that this is an automatic system based on angle slope and track piece type. There’s no manual option available, so we would appreciate any feedback and suggestions on how to improve upon the new system.

All these changes will automatically populate across your parks.

A Musical Request from the Audio Team...

Greetings everyone,

Bringing you some sweet-sounding news on this dreary Monday...

As you all know our Planet Coaster Audio team is absolutely amazing at what they do, from arranging the beautiful soundtrack we all love to implementing an incredible array of sounds to complete your theme park experience - some of which you might not even notice at first (which is a true art)!

Now they'd like to hear from you:

What type of ride trigger sound effects and ambience audio would you like to hear in Planet Coaster?

For example: imagine being on a sci-fi themed dark ride, and your guests are going through a laser-infested areas. However, all you have is explosion sounds, which just doesn't 100% complete the experience you're trying to create. Now's your chance to ask our lovely Audio masters about these sounds that, in your opinion, would be awesome to have in-game!

Please post your suggestions and ideas to our official thread here:
- we won't be actively monitoring the comments section on Steam.

8.5/10 – IGN
