Fred-104's RCT2 Custom Scenarios - Now with 340+ scenarios!


Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone reading! I have a huge collection of custom scenarios for OpenRCT2, currently with a whooping 326 of them (as of 2021-04-01). It includes but is not limited to many highly challenging scenarios, remixes of various scenarios from RCT1 and RCT2, beefed up and improved/revisited versions of all RCT2 Wacky Worlds and Time Twister scenarios (often appended with a Roman numeral 2 "II" at the end of the name), and scenarios inspired by other games/media, including 4 Halo-themed scenarios!

There is at least one scenario for every objective type in the game. There are also 7 "no money" scenarios available. Also, there are multiple scenarios with the "Finish building 5 coasters" goal, as well as several with the "Build 10 roller coasters with a given length" goal. As you look into the scenarios, you might notice that some of the goals are absurdly high for the scenario group the scenario is placed in - you will need to use a more systematic gameplay approach (e.g. pricing umbrellas and rides at max price, building highly efficient rides and coasters, and having a better understanding of the game's mechanics in general) to win these scenarios. I am of the opinion that the RCT2 Wacky Worlds and Time Twister scenarios themselves are too easy, hence why I created beefed up versions of them. You should still have fun playing the scenarios regardless though, especially if you seek a greater challenge than the official RCT1 and RCT2 scenarios. Realism-focused playstyles are NOT recommended, especially in several of the challenging and expert scenarios in this pack.

No custom scenery objects are used in any of the scenarios, although some scenarios do use the terrain edge styles from RCT1 - linking RCT1 Deluxe to your OpenRCT2 installation will make the RCT1 terrain edge styles show up.

When you download the scenario collection as a zip file, just extract them to your "scenario" folder in your OpenRCT2 directory (e.g. "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\OpenRCT2\scenario") and you'll be able to access the new scenarios right away! Do note that I will update the collection either with new scenarios or with revisions to existing scenarios within this pack.

NOTE: I did NOT create these scenarios for RCT2 vanilla or RCT Classic, as there are quite a number of them that use new elements that exist in neither RCT2 vanilla nor RCT Classic (e.g. wooden coaster boosters). My custom scenario pack is meant for OpenRCT2 ONLY. You should preferably have the v0.3.3 stable release or later.

NOTE2: Please do NOT complain if my scenarios don't work for you! It's not my fault that my scenarios don't work for everyone. It would be ideal for you to use the latest stable or develop builds to be safe. If the scenarios still don't work, that's not my problem.

Scenario Groups

  • Tycoon Trek (TT) - RCT1-inspired scenarios (e.g. Frontier Finis, Dark Age Forest Frontiers, Mei's World, Karts & Dinosaurs)
  • Corkscrew Commemoration (CC) - RCT1 AA/CF-inspired scenarios (e.g. Chilly Crag, Prehistoric Quarters, Coaster Capstone, Rickety Bosk)
  • Sidewinder Symphony (SwSm) - RCT1 LL-inspired scenarios (e.g. Vertigo Vale, Rubrum Rocks, Orange Spacescape, Teapot Borough)
  • Butterfly Bash (BfB) - RCT2-inspired scenarios (e.g. Rockstar's Aerodrome, Alpine Antics)
  • Geographical Glee (GG) - RCT2 WW-inspired scenarios (e.g. South America - Easter Island)
  • Chrono Warp (CW) - RCT2 TT-inspired scenarios (e.g. The Coaster Pit)
  • Game Scenarios Galore (GSG) - Scenarios inspired by other games (e.g. Halo 4 - Forge Island)
  • Mythic Conquest (MC) - The absolute hardest scenarios I have ever made. They will truly test your knowledge, skills, tactics, luck, and endurance! (e.g. Wasteland of Dying Dreams, Caelian Pyramid, Nemesis Badlands)
  • Original Scenarios (OS) - Any scenario that doesn't fall into any of the above series (e.g. Gerbera Gambol, Abandoned Temple)

Screenshots of some of the scenarios

NOTE: This is only a sample of what to expect in this huge scenario pack.

Northern Sands - The tougher cousin of Southern Sands from RCT1 Loopy Landscapes.


Halo 4 - Forge Island (Great Anvils) - My first custom scenario that I ever publicly uploaded. It is obviously inspired by the Forge Island multiplayer map from Halo 4.Great_Anvils_2020-09-18_17-49-38.thumb.png.62bf2af61ea4fe34217c3238720df4f7.png

Europe - European Cultural Festival 2 (European Extravaganza 2) - One of my beefed up, improved versions of the RCT2 Wacky Worlds and Time Twister scenarios.

Onyx Heights - A futuristic remix of Diamond Heights from RCT1.Onyx_Heights_2020-09-07_15-32-14.thumb.png.f950449c1d08ff25748e193bc42fd65f.png

Frostbite Castle - A great example of a scenario that uses both Wacky Worlds and Time Twister objects together properly. This is also a notoriously difficult scenario, and Marcel Vos actually did this scenario live on stream back on February 1, 2020.


Manic Meteors - One of the several "big bad" scenarios in this pack. You WILL fail it multiple times at the start, but if you can even make it through the initial hurdle of getting your park rating above 700 before May, Year 1, there are even nastier surprises waiting for you once you get to 1,000 guests.Manic_Meteors_2020-08-28_21-07-57.thumb.png.70971e123fc168b8e7b6940e11bc2427.png

Eighth Court of Diyu - Another "big bad" scenario in this pack, this scenario, themed around the Chinese underworld, is one of the hardest scenarios in the collection. It is even more difficult than Manic Meteors as there are many restrictions enabled, and the land is also rather difficult to work with. If you can make it through this one, props to you!


Titan Peaks - My 200th scenario overall and a rather difficult shop profit-focused scenario in the pack.


Gaia's Genesis - My 300th scenario overall, and wow it is really beautiful and huge.


and finally... Wasteland of Dying Dreams - by far the most infamous scenario in the whole entire collection. If you can even make it through this one, many props to you!




BONUS: Nemesis Badlands - Wasteland of Dying Dreams's tougher cousin. If you can even complete this scenario, many props to you.

Some interesting data regarding all of my scenarios and the objectives they have (as of 2021/02/26 I have made 305 scenarios):

  • 79 (25.90%) = "Number of guests at a given date"
  • 59 (19.34%) = "Number of guests in park"
  • 32 (10.49%) = "Repay loan and achieve a given park value"
  • 29 (9.51%) = "Monthly income from ride tickets"
  • 28 (9.18%) = "Park value at a given date"
  • 24 (7.87%) = "Monthly profit from food/merchandise"
  • 22 (7.21%) = "Finish building 5 roller coasters"
  • 22 (7.21%) = "Build 10 roller coasters of a given length"
  • 10 (3.28%) = "Build 10 roller coasters"

If you ask me, this is far better than all of the official RCT1 and RCT2 scenarios combined (counting 'real' parks, Mega Park, "Build your own..." scenarios, and official DLC scenarios like Fort Anachronism and Panda World), which total to 144 scenarios, 83 (57.64%) of which have a "Number of guests at a given date" objective. So with my scenarios, you really do get far more variety with the goals and challenges.

That's not my problem, you're using an outdated version of the game. I'm on the 0.3.3 stable release and Boomerang Dunes works perfectly fine. Please switch to the latest develop/stable release version and stop complaining. I won't fix my scenarios just to make them work on an older version of the game.

I'm not complaining. I'm just pointing out a concern. Not once have I ever berated nor insulted you (not to mention, I'm fairly new here and this really isn't the welcome I wanted to receive).


Also, I'm not sure how to update my version of OpenRCT2. I try to give an update a download and I'm kinda lost on what exactly I need to do next.

Thanks so much for this content! Just having maps with larger sizes is wonderful, let alone all the impressive terrain and texturing done in each individual map! You clearly have a lot of passion for this game, and I don't want that to be undermined. Kudos to you!

Wow this is so neat! I love rollercoaster tycoon, and I haven't even played more than 10 of the original scenarios. I never knew anyone had made scenarios like this, and I'm really excited to try some. Thank you for your time making this! <3
