Posted on Tuesday, November 23 2004 @ 23:34:15 CET by LSDsmurf

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE INSTALLED THE BETA UPDATE, download and install the following file:

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT INSTALLED ANY UPDATE, download and install the following file:

The European version of this update is NOT YET AVAILABLE, but is coming soon.

NEW GUEST LIST (PEEP THOUGHTS) WINDOW - A Guest List (peeps' thoughts) window has been added and can be accessed by clicking on the 'Guests' button located at the bottom of the 'Park Management' buttons. The window allows you to click on an icon to select either a view of all the individuals in the park or a summarized list. You may also display either peep status or thoughts, and control whether the information is presented in ascending or descending order. The window lists only thoughts that are relevant to game-play.

EMPLOYEE DUTY ZONES - This update allows players to see the patrol zones for other staff members of same type while editing patrol zone for a staff member.

POWERED LAUNCH MODE - added to more coaster types.


NO ENTRY SIGNS - staff now ignore these signs so they can get to do their job quicker.

GENERAL - Based on players' feedback, several balancing changes have been introduced to make the game a little more forgiving, especially with regard to peeps who won't ride the rides. But be aware, peeps will still not go on rides if their basic needs are not met; you MUST take steps to ensure the basics (food, money, and toilets) are provided for your peeps so they can continue to enjoy spending their money in your park.

PUSHING THE ENVELOPE - A number of coasters now have higher maximum limits and faster launch speeds.

QUEUE LINES AND TERRAIN EDITING - Editing the terrain occupied by queues is no longer allowed. Previously, if terrain under a queue line was modified, the modifications could break the queue line and that may not have been readily apparent to players.

COMPLAINTS - The peeps and staff now complain less, for example about fatigue and pay.

BREAKDOWNS - Breakdowns now occur less frequently.

BLOCK BRAKES - The function of block brakes has been modified so that, in the case of a clear track ahead, the brakes section will slow down the train to the specified speed and permit it continue. If the train is traveling slower than the permitted speed and the track is clear ahead, its speed is BOOSTED to that permitted value.

CHARACTER AI (peep behavior) - A small number of rarely-occurring bugs have been addressed, including one related to queuing problems.

WATER RIDES SOUND EFFECTS - This update adds water ride sound effects for appropriate rides.

COASTER RATINGS - No longer fluctuate.

VENDOR AND STAFF UNIFORMS - Uniforms are now preserved when the game is saved.

STABILITY - A small number of compatibility issues that surfaced after the release of the game which could cause instability on certain systems have been fixed.
