This looks amazing. I really want to test that soon :)

EDIT: I liked this so much while testing I actually decided to do those 3 tester objectives in your post. I was able to do all three of them (as long as I understood what you meant for the loop one). I have the replay if you're interested.

Thanks guys for all the good feed back. And thanks for sending me the replay.

Its still a little buggy. But i hope to have the next version still near featureless but run as good as i can get it. And future versions after that add game modes and more players.

Still working on it. But my classes are a bit tuff at the moment, so when i get time ill get back on it. Other wise its just a little here and there.

I always wanted to make a sort of JPOG with creeps but never got around to it. This is a similar idea. I'ma test now.

WOW! Very smooth. Only complaint is the lack of physics; there is no increases in speed when you go down a huge incline.

One thing I noticed on the rider, sometimes going down a straight railing, he'd flip over to the other side of the track.

Lies lol. There is. But its hard to tell, i need to increase the change in speed for the physics. But if you watch it from the zoomed out mode, and do big enough coaster's you can tell. it will go from 100 ms to 522 ms. For a good example of this type "rc2" when your working on your coaster, and use the nommal zoom, (not first person) and you will see it speed up and slow down.

But even at 522 its hard to tell your moving fast from first person. I think more speed wont fix that problem. But adding trees you pass by or something, so it feels like your moving more. This is something i am addressing. But at this point i don't plan to increase the 522 speed max.

I am aware, it has to do with the angle the model is looking at because i switch a few things around. Ill get that fixed. But thanks. The Rider Also has a few other minor issues, i hope to be able to work out soon.

Something that would be cool is if you expand theme park mode, like a smalelr RCT.

whats rct? I never played a roller coaster game my self. But to be more clear the theme park mode (thats not in current version) is planed to have one park, where people come to ride coasters. and little boys like coasters that go fast, and little girls like coasters that go slow ect. Before the people are let into the park you will get 5-10 min to build your coaster, and then they will ride the rides they consider most fun for them.

So lets say there are 30 little boys and 70 little girls for a day. I might want to build for little boys because everyone else will be trying to get the little girls. Anyway you get the idea. I hope to have about 5-6 different type of people, and then each of them be a little be diverse by chance.

If this is unclear you will see when i get there.


But i am interested in what you were saying. I don't quite understand what you meant.

RCT = Roller Coaster Tycoon. By the way, the mode you explained sounds awesome, but needs heavy ass coding and debugging (imagine having to mvoe all the riders around theme park, what they would do if there were no roller coasters, how they would show + points, etc.).

Updated Map. Roller Coaster Alpha 1.9

In this update i got quite a few smaller things i wanted to clean up.
It has a much better ride experience then in the past, and many cool stats.
I didn't get to work on the core of the game sadly but hopefully by next version.

Updates
Sky
Larger area to build in
Minor Terrain work
Improved Stats For Roller Coaster
Colored Stats
Re did parts and add some functionality to the builder
add functionality to the rider
Re did Physics
Added Things you pass to make it feel like your moving.
Tips (can be turned off)
Revamped Quest Menu.

Request
In This Version, I am looking to continue lowering the learning curve.
If you try the game and can think of any good tips, i could add i would like to hear them.
Or Any Tips you find confusing or not useful i would like to know (current tips).


Plans For next update (End Feb is most likely)
2 Game modes(Free Build, Ai Challenge)
Icons Added to spells.
Fix Rider Cam
Improve Cart, To better ride on tracks

Other Plans For Future updates
Multi player , 4 players max (Testing has shown, past 2000 units, the game starts to have minor lag, when placing a piece. so 500 tracks each = 4 player)
A 3rd game mode called theme park
terrain, work done.

Pending on adding, unsure at moment
Some Basic Music. (can be turned off)
A Basic Tutorial in game, that shows the basics, if you want to use it. (Pending, Might not do this next version or ever...)

Update Version Alpha 2.0

This update is mostly a visual update.

Added Skin To Track. (looks all wooden now, more warcraft like)
Almost All new Icons.
Better Tool Tips. (They still need some work)
Added Hot Keys.
Better Tips.
You now speed up and slow down 50% faster. And start off faster. (It doesn't feel so slow anymore)
Coaster Stats Updated
Fixed Some Bugs And few more minor updates

I was hoping to show the Ai, this version but its not quite right yet, You should be able to expect it next version.

Things likely to come next version.

AI Challenge should be done.
preview picture.
All Grammar To be gone throw.
Several languages supported.
Rider Cam, adjusted and one more camera added to it.
Fix Cart to better ride on tracks. (This Needs to get done, i just keep avoiding it)
Flags on every 5th to 10th track.
Sound effects.
Also Hopefully anything and everything that needs to get done before i can start mulitplayer.

Other Ideas i trying to do
Allow coaster to go over water and different height Terran, but as of yet i am failing, badly at this.



Also Added lindenkron to the project group, as he made the wooden skin that is now in the game. I also added Daskunk to testers, as he give me alot of of good feed back, many of hes suggestions will be done next version though.

Update Version Alpha 2.3

The game is now 4 player! 4 people can build a coaster and/or ride a coaster at the same time!

(update may look small but was not easy....I hard to pretty much rebuild the game, so it will work for as many players as i want...)
