    We haven't had 1.10. We had 1.1 which is not same thing. It is not same as math decimal. The period is separator not decimal. So 1.1 and 1.10 are two different versions.
    E dor Planet Coaster! #TeamPC #CosmicCowWow

    Maybe people are just wondering what would happen in Planet Coaster 2?

    Just like people wondering back in the RCT1 days what would be in RCT2?
    Early Bird.

    Galactic Coaster! We all get our own systems and planets and can go visit everyone's parks by going to their home planet.

    It would be cool to design coasters on planets with different amounts of gravity!

    wouldnt that just cause coasters to go faster/slower similar to having high/low friction?

    Video games are not meant to mimic reality, but to exaggerate it

    Pretty much. Just throw in alien guests and different backdroups and you are a go.

    Not exactly. A coaster under the effects of a different gravitational force would require to be designed differently. Take a coaster on the moon for example. The gravitational force on the moon is approximately 1/6th of Earth's. (9.807 m/s2 vs 1.625 m/s2) So on earth a 100' coaster would reach a top speed of around 55 MPH, but a 100' coaster on the moon would only reach a whopping speed of around 22 MPH! For a roller coaster to reach a top speed of 55 MPH on the moon, it would require a 600' drop! For a roller coaster to reach a top speed of 100 MPH on the moon, it would require a 2,000'+ drop! Also, the size of the supports for a coaster on the moon would be considerably smaller as well.

    Looking at the opposite effect, if we were on a planet with three times the gravity of Earth, a 100' coaster would hit a top speed of 95 MPH, while a 35' coaster would hit a top speed of 56 MPH! Not to mention since everyone is already under 3Gs the slightest increase in positive Gs would be painful. And, in order to get airtime, the coaster would have to FLY over hills at much faster rates of speed.

    So a coaster designed on earth would not function the same if it were built on another planet. It could either become a snooze fest or a death machine.

    genius minds recognized this problem and invented the launch coaster. coaster enthusiasts are always ahead of time . more problematic is the zero-g roll in a non-g environment. no way to feel the difference.

    Never to old to learn something new I notice. Nice calculations.

    Haha, everything will be zero-g yes.

    But..... It does sound like a real challenge to gain good values. Will still be interesting to see what happens.

    You still have acceleration in zero g so that wouldnt really be a problem, but still interesting to see how it would turn out!

    I absolutely love love that I inspired this mess. lol.
