Play 1's scenarios in 2. 1's missing some pretty important things, namely the ability to change the height of whatever you're placing by holding down Shift, which makes building underground an enormous chore.
Aside from that, good scenarios, tons of coaster building, and making fat stacks of money. and maybe some explosions and snapped spines if you dont bank your turns

>> No.5805459


You're playing one of the most autistically made, but simple and simply fun game ever. Everything makes sense and you just try to stay profitable while you build cool attractions and try out new attractions your dedicated research team somehow invented all by themselves.

PROTIP: Build two of these, mirrored, directly next to each other, and tell them to synchronize their launch. Customers love it, the coaster costs nothing to build, and it makes tons of cash. Then you can build whatever you want comfortably around the rest of the park.

Honestly, if your scenario is so poorly designed that i meet the goal in less than 3 months when it's 4 years long, you did something wrong.

About all I can suggest for park value there is build those coasters that are powered launch, and build a ton of them. Also dont have ATMs and set the park entry price to take all of the poorest guest's money so that they GTFO

One other thing you might like is you can flip on a simulation of the ride test while building coasters and the like. Perfect for if you think something's entering a loop too fast, or if the train will lose all momentum somewhere.

One of my biggest annoyances was constantly starting and crashing coasters on launched mode trying to perfect the speed into inversions cause we all know getting that "barely made it" entrance speed is key to excitement vs intensity. Then I would save the track and then destroy everything and rebuild so I don't get the "Im scared to ride it" criticism

Better scenarios and more satisfaction through completion progression. I always hated that everything was unlocked from the get go in RCT2. in 1 you had to unlock scenarios by completing others.

There were only ever three coasters that did it. Orient Express and Lightning Loops were the other two.

Maybe because those smaller loops (and to a lesser extent loops in general) aren't as popular nowadays. Which sucks, those circular Schwarzkopf loops are way more fun than stuff like RMC's "it's a barrel roll but it stops and goes the other way halfway through!"

>> No.5810575

Don't know. But I do know that two trains used to always enter the loops at the same time on Loch Ness (it was a major ride feature), but now the computerized zone/braking system forbids it.
I'm sure there are legal reasons they're no longer built, and the computer system preventing certain events is probably the only reason Loch Ness still stands.

>> No.5810582

I can dig a lot of RMC stuff, but their "let's defy your expectations by yanking you in an unexpected way through a loop" shit gets old real fast,
especially when they build a coaster that has NOTHING BUT that fucking gimmick over and over (looking at you, Twisted Colossus; they destroyed a classic ride for this?).

>> No.5810594

I'm of two completely different minds in regards to the RMC conversions. I had only ever been on the massively neutered Colossus with the Morgan trains, the airtime hill removed, and the double dip covered up with a midcourse. I'd say Twisted Colossus is a better ride than that for sure, but is it better than 70s/80s Colossus? Unfortunately I'll never now. The fucking phenomenal refurbish Ghostrider got a few years ago makes me wonder if Colossus could've turned out better if they did that instead.

I think the RMC layouts are great in general, but the thing is, when a roller coaster is gone, it's GONE. You can read an old book, watch an old movie, listen to an old song, or play an old game as much as you like, but the original layouts RMC converts are now 100% gone, and that's a bit screwy to me.

I reinstalled RCT+AA+LL years ago and got to Karts & Coasters before not really wanting to go any further. Don't know why I just stopped. Was good fun while I played it though.

Do coasters have a new ride boost that wears off after a while, or do they eat each other's popularity or something?

>> No.5818134

Coasters lose popularity, but it's nowhere near as fast as other rides. You can pretty much charge insane rates for coasters, i've gotten away with $20 for some of them.

for context this had excitement ratings of around 9+. They wouldn't pay $20 for very long, but you can get away with much more than you think. unlike the fucking piece of shit cooked house and circus which you instantly have to drop the price of

Brand new rides have a bonus factor to them that allows you to charge like 2-3x as much as you'd typically be able to get away with. It only works during the first year though I believe, the ride has to say "built this year" in the stats.

Much like everything else in this game there is a hidden strategy in choosing rides based on reliability, some rides are naturally less reliable than others. You can tweak reliability somewhat but rides are typically the most reliable by default and if you change an option you're making it worse. The exceptions to that is changing a ride to block sectioned mode and changing inspection times. Other than those two things the only way to improve reliability is to build a ride in a different way or build a different ride.

One factor the game looks at is how fast the lift hill is vs the minimum speed of the coaster as a whole. If the lift hill is too fast that it is not the slowest part of the coaster the game penalizes you for it.

Reverse incline launch greatly affects reliability on the compact inverted shuttle for some reason. The stat goes from 21 to 31 apparently.

Powered launch affects reliability as well. The looping coaster has a separate unreliability stat just for powered launch which adds 5 more points to its baseline level. If you add a chainlift to the coaster anywhere that might cause the reliability to plummet.

The chairlift's unreliability stat increases exponentially with the speed you set the chairs at. At base speed they are less reliable than a typical rollercoaster but at their top speed the chairlifts are tied with the flying saucers as the least reliable rides in the game.

On the other hand mini golf is the most reliable ride in the game with an unreliability of 0 which means its virtually immune to breakdowns. Mini golf has its own potential for optimizations though.

I went through the code a few years back and looked at the best and worst rides for reliability

This appears to be the current version of the file I was looking at:

Another hidden stat which I didn't notice before is upkeep which affects a ride's profit margin. Powered launch and LIM powered launch greatly increase the costs of upkeep which means you make less from rides that use those two modes.

Didn't know Powered Launches did this. Still going to make them though because you can fit powered launch coasters just about anywhere as opposed to needing a shitty lift hill take a year to climb

>Much like with the first game, two expansion packs were released for Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, which included new rides, facilities, and scenarios. The first pack, Wacky Worlds, was released in May 2003, the second pack, Time Twister, was released in November 2003. Each packs were based around themes and didn't have any involvement from the series' creator Chris Sawyer. Instead both expansions were developed by Frontier Developments, who developed the Xbox port of the original game, and would go on to develop the entirety of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.

Well that explains it completely why those two were crap. Shame.

I've beaten that level without even building new rides. I've build shop stalls that can beat that amount on their own.

To say they included new rides is a bit of a stretch. They were just reskinned versions of existing rides and most of them were prefab rides. I didn't like them because a lot of the rides, scenery, and even the footpaths looked out of place in the game.

Which rating should I seek to max when making a coaster? Excitement? Nausea should obviously be kept as low as possible, but how about intensity?

>> No.5820789

I'd look for a good balance between excitement, profit per hour, and nausea that isn't at Very High. Intensity doesn't really seem to matter as long as it's below 10, but obviously if you can make it lower that's good. Also, your coaster could have 10+ excitement but it wont mean much if it has only 1 train.

>> No.5820816

Excitement is what guests want you can't really go wrong with it.

Nausea causes guests to puke everywhere and guests avoid rides that are too nauseating.

Intensity is the most complicated of the stats. Guests will generally avoid rides with an intensity above their preferred intensity in their personal stats but sometimes guests will ignore their preference a little bit if they're happy and excited enough. Everything up to "very high" can be a good thing in certain circumstances but "extreme" and "ultra-extreme" rated rides will be significantly penalized in excitement and have very high nausea.

Adding onto >>5820789 to show off a couple of things.
This coaster only has 6 excitement, pretty low for a woodie. But it's more compact than most coasters of its type, has 3 trains, and can charge 8+ bucks a ticket. I've built 9+ excitement coasters that dont have the sort of profit per hour this has, so do not neglect the amount of trains. Not every coaster setup is suited for tons of trains though.
But either way, compactness for a coaster can also be something very good to have.

I did end up finishing the scenario, but only barely. This is what I managed to build by year 3 of a 4 year scenario. Got me just over the guest target with two advertising campaigns.
You can build surprisingly good and cheap steel mini coasters if you have a hill like the brown one on the top does. Could've made that one plenty better if I'd had the money.
