  1. It has been suggested several times before. But RCT2's save format (and object format) don't allow for it, so it will have to wait until OpenRCT2 has it's own save format.
  2. Advertisment campaigns don't change intensity preference, they just draw more guests to the park. If guests are saying they want to go on something more thrilling, then build more thrill rides and less gentle rides. If they like the coaster, build another one. This is not an issue with the AI, it's how the game is supposed to work. If you want to override the intensity preferences, there's a cheat for that. There's also a cheat to make guests ignore intensity ratings entirely.
  3. This means the ride intensity is too low. All guests have an intensity preference range - they won't ride rides above or below it. You can see this for an individual guest in the peep stats. This is individual to each guest, but you'll find that in some scenarios, the average intensity preference is low and you're better off building gentle rides, and in others, the peeps want more extreme rides . You want to build rides that will appeal to the majority of guests.
  4. What do the guest thoughts say? A common cause for peeps not riding gentle rides is that they are not intense enough, but intensity preference varies by scenario. Look at the entrance and see if guests are walking towards the entrance and turning back, or not walking in that direction at all (in which case, the problem may be your path layout).
  5. These are not examples of vehicle physics. Some of them are ride categories, which affect only the tab of the ride window that the ride shows up in, and nothing else, and the rest are ride types, which you can already override. As far as the vehicle physics are concerned, the main distinction is powered versus unpowered, and swinging, spinning, or neither. These cannot be changed unless you create a new object file, but you can override the parameters - the train mass (which determines the frictional losses), the velocity and acceleration (for powered rides only), and the moment of inertia (for spinning rides only). Of these, a cheat currently exists to change the train mass.
  6. OpenRCT2 implements several features from RCT1 that were not present in vanilla RCT2: Non-passthrough powered launch mode is available on the looping coaster Steep slopes are supports on the Junior coaster (though you need to enable the cheat for this AFAIK) Booster pieces are available on a few coasters. The "Have fun" objective is available for scenarios There is also support for loading RCT1 savegames and a few of the RCT1 sprites (such as the terrain wall sprites).
  7. A lot of people don't place objects where they aren't visible. But with the cutaway view in OpenRCT2, people can actually view the inside, so you might want to keep if you've already built it. If you do remove it, that will free up some space. If you've hit the object data limit and don't want to delete stuff, then there are a couple of things I can think of that you could try: Merge groups of quarter-tile scenery objects into one. For example, instead of building a floor from four quarter tile blocks, you could replace them with one full tile block. A similar thing applies for supports, fences. If you have any repeated units built from scenery, making them one object could save on map data. I see, for example, that you have quite a few tiles containing four quarter-tile bushes, so making a full tile object with four bushes might save slots. Delete the terrain on tiles that are entirely covered with scenery (like custom land blocks) or paths. This includes any areas you've hidden with black tiles. Note that this is tedious to reverse, so I'd only do it if when you're otherwise finished with the area. It also won't get you that many slots. Path objects don't take object slots (as far as I know). If you have any scenery objects that could be made path objects (unlikely, to be honest), then you could potentially save space by converting them. Scenery objects contain (or should contain) one map element per tile occupied. So small scenery objects are always one map element, large scenery objects can vary based on the size. No, there is no edit history stored in the file (which is why there is no undo functionality). If you want to keep the original version of the file around, save a seperate backup (which is probably advisable if you plan on deleting stuff).
  8. Looping coasters might not be able to achieve extremely high excitement ratings easily, but they can get decent excitement for very cheap. Small looping coasters are great for scenarios where you want a cheap but profitable ride to get your park started.
  9. You can't. Or at least, I'm not aware of a way to do that - the shift key doesn't work. You can adjust the height of individual track pieces with the tile inspector, but it's quite tedious to raise a whole layout piece by piece. I have in the past used a script that find all track pieces belonging to a given ride and raises them by a set amount.
  10. Even without the launcher you can update whenever you choose to - the binaries are rebuilt automatically whenever changes are committed to develop, so they should always be the latest version.
  11. Why do you have to wait for a new network version to update?
  12. You're right - I'd honestly never noticed that before. I don't think there's a way to make it completely opaque, but I couldn't be certain.
  13. I like the idea, but not the interface. I think click-and-drag would be better, so that if you hold ALT (say) and click and drag, it would show a wall between the two points, and when you release it would be placed. This is harder to implement, I acknowledge, but I think it'd be easier to use. There is already a cheat to set the ratings to whatever you want. The only caveat is, the game recalculates ratings frequently, so if you want your modified ratings to stick around, you need to stop the game from recalculating them. The way you do this is to create and test a ride that never completes the circuit (and thus never gets ratings). This blocks the game from calculating any more ratings, because it only calculates them one at a time. After that, you can set ratings for your other rides manually.
  14. There are three real 4th dimension coasters. One built by Arrow, and the other two by S&S who still offer them, IIRC. They're hard to build in RCT2 because large coasters in general are hard to do well. I prefer to base designs on Arrow's concept layouts (which were much more modest in size) rather than what they actually built.
  15. Your renderer is set to OpenGL - if you switch to the default software renderer, the popups are opaque.
  16. Instructions are in this post. Essentially, you have to create a copy of RCT2's directory structure, and copy the RCTC assets into it. Also, it seems the sound assets also don't load in OpenRCT2, so you won't have any sound or scenarios. Personally, I would recommend just using vanilla RCT2, but if you already have Classic and don't want to install vanilla as well, you can use the RCTC assets with OpenRCT2.
  17. OpenRCT2 can already run using RCT Classic assets in place of vanilla RCT2. IIRC, it cannot load RCTC scenarios, but everything else should work.
  18. Wait, what makes you think that? It's been stated many times by the developers that this is planned for the future. I'm not actually sure if you need a new save format to increase the number of custom music slots - in fact, I'm pretty sure you don't, since those music files don't go in savegames, and I'm not seeing anything in a quick search of the code that would suggest otherwise. But if you wanted to make it so they did go in savegames, then that would need a new save format.
  19. RCT Classic is already available on Android
  20. No, they're not diagonal brakes. It is diagonal track with lift chain, which looks a bit like brakes but doesn't slow the train. You can make the train slow down with a shoestring, but it's just more effort than it's worth to do that just for brakes, so I left them non-functional. It's rendered from a 3D model using a program I wrote.
  21. No, you cannot have custom scenario objectives. You could probably add a new one to the game, if you really wanted to, but the one you've suggested is way too specific. It'd only be used in that one scenario. Also, what would "make 500 1950s rockets" entail? Placing scenery items?
  22. A shell is a program that provides a user interface to the OS ... like bash or zsh. It's also often referred to as a command line or terminal. This will be the program that runs when you start a new terminal window. I don't use Mac OS, but according to this StackExchange post it can be found at Applications->Utilities->Terminal. This should spawn a window with a shell where you can run the above command.
  23. You type this line into your shell and press enter. Note that this assumes the location of the steam executable - I assume this is where it installs by default (I don't use Mac OS) but if it's located somewhere else you should provide that path instead.
  24. There are instructions on the page I linked. It says you have to invoke Steam with the console enabled (by passing -console as an argument), and then type the following into the Steam console (not your shell): download_depot 285330 285331 This should download the required files.
  25. Search your filesystem for "g1.dat". This should be contained in a directory called "Data", and the directory that contains that (usually called "RollerCoaster Tycoon 2" is the one you want to select. If g1.dat doesn't exist anywhere, then you need to install the vanilla game first. Instructions on how to obtain the game files on Mac are available here.
