Lapping has been added to 38 coasters, which allows you to lap the train through the station multiple times! We've also improved the Operations Tab with a dropdown menu showing only the possible operations mode for a specific coaster: Standard, Lapping, and Block section.
As we come to the end of 2018 we celebrate another year of incredible content, including three new themed packs including Studios, Vintage and the World's Fair. In addition we also launched the Thememaker’s Toolkit – a brand new tool that allows you to convert your 3D model creations into Planet Coaster scenery items.
However, the year is not over just yet, and we are thrilled to reveal the final content of 2018: The Magnificent Rides Collection, coming to you on December 18, 2018. The collection will have nine new rides, with one that will have two variations.
To highlight these new rides Lead Artist Sam Denney will join Community Manager Chanté Goodman for a developer livestream on December 12, at 7PM UTC on YouTube.
The Magnificent Rides Collection* will be available to purchase from Steam or the Frontier Store for £7.99 ($10.99, €10.99). *Please note that you need to have the Planet Coaster game (sold separately) in order to download and play this extra content.
Now, there's something a little on the negative side I'd like to point out. I was talking with a friend about him getting into Planet Coaster, and he said it'd be a tough purchase simply because it's too expensive. My immediate thoughts were that "most AAA-ish games are around $60. $45 full price for Planet Coaster actually isn't terrible. Heck, I'd even say it's more than worth the price."
But he didn't mean the base game.
He meant the game + all of the DLC's.
As of 8:12pm EST, December 6th.
It's a little easy to gloss over/forget the fact that Planet Coaster's become a $108.91 video game ($80.91 if you get deluxe then add the construction kits). I'll still love and praise this video game, but I do finally see his argument. Mind you, I did see this game's DLC's recently heavily discounted, so if you do catch it at the right time, you can get the add-ons for much less than this.
You bring up a good point. It really does add up, but at the same time, I very much appreciate that the game is constantly being updated every couple months with new coaster types, flat rides, theming packages, etc.
That is one thing (among many) that I did not like about RCT3. After the Wild pack came out, the game was almost left to rot, and it was very easy to exhaust all of the coaster types and game features without downloading loads of custom scenery and other mods. After playing the game since the day it came out, I finally reached my breaking point last May and decided to give Planet Coaster a try. I haven't touched RCT3 since and will likely never go back, ever.
With that being said, I really do think they should start lumping things together and selling package deals at lower prices, because if they continue to add content every couple months and charge $10 every time, I can see people's frustration. Luckily they are very involved with the community.
^As Planet Coaster ages, they likely will. As an extreme example, I can go out right now, and buy the entirety of RCT 2 or 3 for as little as $10-15. And when those came out, they were, what, $29.99 Ea?
So, I do think eventually, they will start to sell bundles.
