    The great thing with the SteamDB stuff is that there is NO WAY to know WHAT is being updated in the game. It could be anything from this "huge" speculated update...... Or a really small, tiny in fact, fundamental change or tweak that spreads all over the game that requires a lot of aspects to be re-loaded, causing a huge file size. So, all I'm saying is speculate away, but hold your horses. Just because the SteamDB stuff suggests an increase in activity, there's absolutely NO way of telling what it is or when it's coming. Just don't get ahead of yourselves and keep the wishful thinking at bay.

    The "something weird" is likely what Joel mentioned above: at a certain point when you have a lot of scenery / guests, the game becomes bottlenecked by the DirectX render thread. When this happens you'll likely see your CPU's cores all being utilised but not at 100%, and your GPU utilisation will be low. It isn't intuitive: you might expect a single thread to cause one CPU to be loaded at 100% and the rest to be low, but Windows can and will move threads around cores unless it's explicitly told to do otherwise. Unfortunately there's no cure for this other than to limit guest count and reduce scenery object counts. Porting the engine to DirectX 12 or Vulkan might improve things, but such a change is decidedly non-trivial and Frontier have stated that it's something they're not looking at doing for Planet Coaster.

    Nobody knows for sure, but assuming it isn't disconfirmed i would say it still is. My personal guess is that it will be part of the next DLC (Which is heavily rumored to be announced soon... but keep in mind those are rumors based on steamdb updates and NOT by based on any announcement Frontier has made)

    Water rides would be great yes. Pools and slides, i'm still trying to figure out how I can make that fun.... I've seen a lot of video's from Silvaret, but I couldn't remember him saying he wants anything like this.

    Here is another screenshot. That is Fisherman's Midnight Manor, I managed to move it to this park in sections. I clicked on the manor and saved each section as a separate building, interior, exterior, roof sections, etc. and reassembled it in the new park with the Lost Expedition.

    I was just kidding. But who knows?...... Frontier can definitely be full of surprises. Some big YouTubers want this kind of stuff too, incl. Silverett. It will be summer in the UK soon. Time for an outdoor water party I say....

    I hope not, because I would like to see different things. On the other hand, how do you know?

    I knew it! A water rides DLC pack is possibly coming soon! Hello swimming pools, water slides, and possibly bumper boats (Rainbows End an amusement park in NZ has this).

    I think that there are a number of us occasional visitors who would come back to the game if management just got some more attention. Everything else is great.

    I think you can, but your processor is a bit slow maybe. You can buy the game and try, if it doesn't work smooth or you are not pleased you can get a refund on Steam if you don't play more than 2 hours. (you need to check this first because I have never refunded anything so I am not sure) My suggestion is to do that, try opening a medium filled park from the Workshop and see how it runs. My suggestion would be to keep the settings on low as well.

    Do you use the same lights on both sequencers at the same time?

    You can make boardwalk parks now. Look at what Fisherman and others are doing. It’s just that we don’t have a proper biome with ocean at one end. In RCT3 you could make the water appear to go out into infinity at one end depending on what level you placed it at. You could have a completely flat park with nothing outside the border. Here we are stuck with the skirt outside the park border. Grassland has the least amount of cliffs at the border of a flattened park and hills in the skirt.

    There are some other things that will be added too. To RCT3 Last night I started RCT3 and close the game after 2 minutes .... RCT3 is full of trash! I spended a lot of time to look inside the common.ovl and unique.ovl and this game had so much of trash inside all ovls that the game Crash anytime. And all customcontentbuilder (me too) feed the game with more trash. This is why the game lagging... So when you want to have a other grid, check the main.ovl - serch the grid options and try to implement a rotating grid option and then you got it - I diddnŽt found it So I hope that Frontier diddnŽt do the same in PC - weŽll see.

    Not to mention guest editor still isn't in the picture. All we have are randomly generated strangers or an avatar you can make but will only find 1% of the time. You can create an avatar kind of like you can use sims to create a sim. except is has a build mode and buy mode, but lacks a live mode. And you might say "Just play sims then" but consider this: Sims 2-4 does NOT have a feature where you can have your sims ride on roller coasters. (Sims 1 makin magic did but it is outdated to the point that it will not run on windows anymore. and even though sims 3 had a single stuff pack where you could ride one it runs very poorly on my computer)

    It's just a feeling like do you ever get that where you think that something needs work on? Well that's like me with planet coaster at the moment, it needs more coaster and flat rides and some new screams, because atm the screams so soooo fake imo

    You can stop now! After reading all your same posts about what you want in several similar topics, Frontier is aware now that you want more flatrides, transportation rides, midway rides, a boardwalk DLC, etc! At least we all do! I don’t think that endless repeating the same kind of post will be effective...

    Hi there, For half a year I am working on still my first PC park. I made some nice progress and found this forum were I expect to find other builders who like to share and see parks. My first park is called "Walk on the wild side" as the title allready explains. I started with a garden area filled with some flat rides.

    It sure does look like this will be a big update from what is shown on Steamdb. Hopefully we will get more flat rides and more transportation rides. I would like to see a water park or Midway Rides DLC get added to Planet Coaster. Or a Boardwalk style DLC with rides and shops that you would find on a boardwalk. I would like to make a boardwalk section of my park. Let's hope Frontier will make announcement soon.

    I still think that PC is incomplete! Frontier is making money with DLC's of stuff that might should have been integrated into the base release. But I could understand this if Frontier would use/ is using that money to update the game in general. There's a really big gap to RCT3 as a game (management and theme park creations). In PC you have the chance to decorate your park (more imagination than content) the way you want it, but I think that Rct3 (with all official content) with an updated grid would be the better game. Frontier should have a look at RCT3 again and implement (and maybe give more depht to) the major management mechanics. And they should add all the standard rides from real theme parks as soon as possible... It's sad that you can recreate your favourite real life ride with the tools of PC but you don't do it because the ride isn't included...

    Well I finally reached 50,000 peeps in the park. I don't know if the game will go much higher or not. It seemed to hit the limit rather quickly instead of the usual tapering off.
