Can't open downloaded park or scenery

Recommended Posts

I've just installed OpenRCT2 on my mac and i'm trying to open parks that i built in the past but it won't open them.
I want to get the scenery that i used in these parks, and it used to be that if you opened a park you automatically got the scenery that it uses.
If i download scenery items and put them in the scenery folder it doesn't show up in the game either :(

I used to make video's of my park builds and would like to start doing that again, but i not without the cool scenery i used to have.

This still is the case. But this only works if the save file includes the scenery objects with it. Make sure you have "export plug-in objects with saved games" checked in the options.

If you have a save file which is not exported, the game will show you a list of the objects that are missing but you'll have to locate and download them manually.

You have to put them in the OpenRCT2/object folder, not the ObjData folder. This is a recent change.

Are you looking in the Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 folder, or the OpenRCT2 folder? They're different.

I haven't got an OpenRCT2 folder. Where would i find that?
I'm such a noob.

If you installed the game, you certainly have the folder somewhere. Search for it using your computer's search function. I'm not sure where it installs on Mac, as I'm a Windows user.

On Windows it's Documents/OpenRCT2. On Linux it's ~/.config/OpenRCT2. If there is not a subdirectory named object, just create it.

Do you know what the location is for Mac?

I've searched my whole computer and can't find any openRCT2 folders. But i have managed to open a few of my old scenarios with scenery.

Thanks for the help guys!

It's actually very easy now: start OpenRCT2, click the red toolbox and select the fifth option: Open custom content folder. In this folder, the subfolder "object" should already be precreated.
