Parkitect

Developer Texel Raptor will be expanding on its already superb theme park sim, Parkitect, next week, with the arrival of the game's first paid DLC. It's called Taste of Adventure and launches on Wednesday, 20th November, alongside a big free update for all existing owners.

Taste of Adventure's big eye-catchers are the two new themed building and object sets, intended to add more variety to your burgeoning tourist attractions. Adventure features all the bits you'll need to craft a world of pulpy Indiana-Jones-esque thrills, complete with temples and an on-track jeep ride, while Candyland offers the tools to build a land of treats and sweets.

Joining the new scenery sets are a whole heap of new rides; there's the aforementioned jeep attraction (officially known as the Safari Ride), River Rapids - which includes freely placeable bumpers, rapids, and waterfalls - a Swinging Coaster, Vertical Spinning Coaster, Inverting Spinning Coaster, Inverting Wooden Coaster, plus two new flat rides - Experience and Clockwork. You'll find more information, plus images, in Texel Raptor's announcement post.

We're super excited to show you the Parkitect: Taste Of Adventure DLC today!
It will launch next week, on November 20th.



https://store.steampowered.com/app/1129050

This is a huge game update that consists of two parts: the paid Taste of Adventure expansion, adding a ton of tasty new content; and a free patch that adds a whole bunch of improvements and new features to the base game.
Here's a trailer to show you some of the highlights:



So, what exactly is included?

Paid content
In the Taste Of Adventure expansion you'll find:


There's a whole new campaign map for you to prove your theme park building skills in 10 challenging scenarios. Can you also beat them without pausing the game or using blueprints?


Adventure
Exciting new objects for the most intrepid adventurer!
Candyland
Welcome to the land of cotton candy and gingerbread!

River Rapids
A staple in many theme parks, but certainly the trickiest
ride for us to implement!
Bumpers can be placed freely.
Safari Ride
A calm scenic ride that can be made more exciting with
freely placeable bumps on the track.
Vertical Spinning Coaster
A coaster than can only be built vertically
with freely spinning rows of seats.
Swinging Coaster
A Wild Mouse-type of coaster with
unique cars that can swing sideways
Inverting Spinning Coaster
A spinning coaster capable of
launches and inversions
Inverting Wooden Coaster
A hybrid coaster combining
wooden and steel sections
Experience
A thrill ride that spins and inverts guests
Clockwork
A flat ride that looks exciting
in motion but is fairly tame


Cookies, Shirts, Sub Sandwiches and Corndogs!






  • Animated doors and gates

  • Lava

  • turntables for the Water Coaster

  • elevators for the Wild Mouse, Spinning Coaster and Swinging Coaster

  • customizable 3D text signs




Free update
Some of the highlights of the free portion of this update include:

  • customizable water colors

  • custom image signs (with modding support!). Your custom images are stored in the savegame/blueprint, so other players can see them too when downloading your shared content from the workshop! Note that custom images take up a lot of the limited storage space in blueprints though

  • ride photo sections for all tracked rides

  • modding support for creating custom coaster trains!

  • improved staff zoning that allows overlapping zones

  • all path styles can be used as queues now

  • improved track builder that preselects the settings of removed track segments, making track editing faster

  • free park entry/free food/free ride voucher marketing campaigns
  • savegames/blueprints can be updated after sharing them on Steam Workshop (also works for old items that have already been uploaded to the Workshop if you subscribe to them)

This'll have to do for one post :)
There'll be more small features and improvements in the full changelog next week.
