Planet Coaster - Thememakers Toolkit Release Date!



Hello coaster friends!

We have some awesome news for you today! A short while ago we announced the launch of the Thememaker's Toolkit, a new pipeline system for turning your 3D creations into Planet Coaster files! We know you've been eagerly awaiting more information on this update and we are excited to reveal that the Thememaker's Toolkit will be launching on:

20 November 2018!

The Thememaker's Toolkit is a free update and will allow you to upload 3D files created in 3D modelling programs (we currently support Maya, Blender and 3D Studio) and convert them into small bespoke items that can be used as scenery pieces in Planet Coaster. These can be later downloaded and placed in your Planet Coaster theme parks, or used as building blocks to make even more amazing piece-by-piece creations. You'll also be able to share all of your bespoke creations with the community for everyone to enjoy via the Steam workshop.

You can learn more about the Toolkit here with our Developer Guide: - this guide will be continuously updated with improvements and information about the Toolkit. We've also updated the FAQ here, so please have a read there and if you have any more questions, let us know in the comments below.

As you may have already guessed based on the November streaming schedule, we will be doing a Thememaker's Toolkit deep dive livestream on 21 November at 7PM UTC on www.youtube.com/planetcoaster/live. Community Manager Chanté will talk to developers Joe Maddex and Sam Denney who will be walking you through the workings of the Toolkit and answer as many questions as they can.

Hope to see you there!
