    Scenario: Planet Pride [Insert rainbow flag here]

    Hello all,

    I have been working on this map for aaaaages and I've finally uploaded it and would love for people to have a look and enjoy themselves playing around in it.

    Here's the link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil...?id=1405353652



    Description copied from Workshop item page:

    A New Scenario!


    It's Pride and this year local residents are gearing up for a bigger celebration than their small town has ever seen before! Help the party get going, spilling into the neighbouring isles.


    Difficulty, Length & Objectives


    Difficulty Length
    Medium 2-3 Hours


    Objectives:



    • Employ 5 Entertainers (For 6 Months)
    • Achieve a Park Rating of 1700 (Before the end of September year 2)
    • Build a Coaster (Before the end of September year 3 with at least 7.0 Excitement and a minimum speed of 70MPH)




    The Park


    Historically Pride Island has thrown rather quaint Pride celebrations. But now, with the rampant commercialisation of the event across the globe, sponsors have trained their sights on this idyllic town and its LGBTQ+ friendly community and entrusted you to go bigger and better by expanding beyond the resident's borders, building on surrounding islands that had been left undisturbed for decades. (To this end your employers have funded the building of a monorail system connecting Pride Island with its neighbouring islands. It will be down to your discretion as to which island you deem most suitable for hosting this years festivities).


    Pride Island Itself


    Pride Island, at first glance, is not much more than a small rock jutting out of the water. Yet its natural beauty and surrounding views are undeniably a sight to behold. With available land being rather limited, the locals have had to make use of what little they could, building across every square inch and even inside the island's cave system. Property prices are known to be exceedingly high.


    The Hissing Isle


    Pride Island's neighbouring volcanic island, known as The Hissing Isle (due to the sound that carries over the water from continuous eruptions) has very limited space to build on. However, the jagged landscape and beaches blanketed with ash are sure to thrill more adventurous visitors. Local trivia notes that the volcano was dormant until approximately ten years ago, when suddenly, eruptions formed a mountain in the middle of the island.


    White Sands


    Lush, fertile and the most accessible of the nearby islands, White Sands has incredible potential. Potential that should not be squandered, (being the only piece of land to offer so few challenges to new builds beyond having similarly limited space).


    Forgotten Cove


    Few travel to Forgotten Cove and return to tell the tale of it. Now, with a monorail connecting all of Pride Island's neighbouring isles, we can finally explore its opportunities. This island does present some challenges to developers however, with tides regularly submerging its beaches that are also punctuated by jagged rock formations and encompassed by tall cliffs.


    Scenario Tips



    • Managing Pride Island's attractions whilst expanding to new territories will sustain healthier profits
    • All of the neighbouring islands are ready for development. The monorail can transport guests just to the islands you wish to
    • More and more people are flocking to the island, and so to meet the demands of so many guests, planning permission for shops and stalls has been made available to allow you to adapt to the needs of growing crowds. (You can edit shop faces/ stalls)
    • This year, your sponsor wishes for you to promote brands that have affiliated themselves with our event. Therefore, only entertainers dressed in approved mascot outfits may take part in the celebrations. Thank you for understanding.

    Pretty cool idea and the park looks great. My sister is gay so I really try to support LGBTQ+ rights and I think this would be a pretty cool idea.


    One cool idea that you could add would be to add some type of star walk using the projection billboards. You could use popular figures who were gay and create some type of a star walk - certainly people such as Freddie Mercury, Elton John, etc. I have found you can do some really cool thing with those because you upload your own image, just avoid the video ones because they cause a serious FPS hit.

    Great idea. Thanks for your words of encouragement

    I think I'm going to move onto the next park/scenario now - sometimes you just gotta cut yourself off from a project and get started with the next one innit. Hope you enjoy the scenario

    I finished the scenario. Loved it. Built a coaster named "Pride Arrow" for it. Made a video of the coaster and uploaded it to my workshop.

    Thanks for the scenario!

    This put such a big smile on my face. Thank you - although you didn't colour each piece of track with rainbow colours - homophobic much?!

    I downloaded your coaster and would love to see what you did with the rest of the park. Great work. Loved the ending of the video where the ride busted literally the moment you decided to put it on camera.


    I thought the theme I went with would put a lot of people off, so it's really just so nice that you played the scenario and enjoyed it.

    Not at all. Straight, and happily living in San Francisco. Proud to have worked with the research team that created the first U.S. FDA approved treatment for prevention of HIV infections. Wish it were a vaccine (it's not), but still progress.

    As I was recording the video and saw the "broken ride" smoke at the end, I was thinking...oh...did that just spoil the video? It only took a moment to decide, "That's not a bug, that's a feature".

    The rest of the park:

    Opened shops, and raised prices. Tuned ride intervals - most rides wait for full ride - min=30sec; max=45 to 60 sec. More guests riding=more money.
    Hired staff. I always bump up pay a bit, and train them a level or two when I can.
    Waited for coaster research to complete and cash to accumulate. Rode your Looney Turns coaster a couple of times. Great job!
    Build the coaster you see above. Tip: 4m wide queue paths can align perfectly with building pieces.
    Built Adventure boat ride to White Sands Island. Price each way: $11.00
    Opened monorail to White Sands Island. Outbound price $11.00; inbound price $0.00. This helps avoid guests getting trapped without cash.
    Built blueprint coaster, "Pyramid of the Serpent" and one thrill ride on White Sands Island. I had to push some trees around to get open space for it. Then I added a couple of shops, benches, bins, staff and staff building there.
    Hired entertainers. I waited for these hires until the cash was rolling in. Paid and trained them and enjoyed the park until the objectives were complete.

    Thanks again!

    -----

    It has been a surprise and somewhat of a disappointment to me that the many lovely scenarios in this forum have gotten so little attention. For all the talk about how players want the game to be a management sim, I would think that the scenarios forum would get more attention.

    Despite this, and the lack of attention my first scenario got (thread now buried), I'm building another scenario. Some ideas are better expressed as scenarios than parks and my new one fits this description. It's almost ready and I'll post when its done.
