Rollercoaster tycoon 3
on 9 June 2014
Well, this is vast improvement of theme parks and older roller coaster games. When I was still at school, I used to work on the "hook a duck" in the evening, and all afternoon on carnival day, for the princely sum of 21 shillings!! the graphics in this compilation is spot on, not so much into the wild side, just the RCT3 and a few "soaked" pieces put in on a make your own scenario. The option to finish a rollercoaster near the end automatically is a great help, but to get a good test result you need to make it right. beware of testing track, without pressing auto complete twice or cars come off there tracks with explosive results!!
One thing that is the only pain, is terrain, unlike some previous Rollercoasters, you only have a flat ground, you have to make most of your hills and underpasses by using shovel tool. The biggest problem with terrain is, that a ride, must have its entrance and exit at same connection to land that is altered. It isnt that easy. I found the best way, is to open terrain tool and use "snap grid". That allows you to either up a whole block so it snaps to next grid, or by only pushing up the front, making a slope that will snap to the flat grid. You can test these by making sure paving textures all connect to each other, any gaps, then its not aligned. Please do have night time, because although a pain to build at night hours, the lighting from some of the rides is superb, and really makes you part of it, beware , even for an old game player like me, its very addictive, and more than once, still been tweaking rides at 11.45pm way past my bedtime for a silver surfer.:P I had no installation problems fortunately . Well recommended, lots to do, many many objects, far to many to list, amazing value and stand alone game, dont need steam or a server, saves to H/D :))
