    Never really played around with early access as it was too limited. These are the same guys who created Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 and 2. Probably my favorite tycoon games.

    This game is actually a lot of fun but has room for improvements in the tycoon aspect. You can not drop more than one staff member at a time. You drop them, reopen management, click staff, redrop, repeat. Some other minor things. With workshop coming I would assume they add a lot more, or I hope. So far its an enjoyable game and relaxing.

    -Challenge Mode: Build your theme park with every management aspect of the game. Try to get you theme park going and dont lose money. The game throws you also different challenges. Theres 3 difficulty options on challenge mode.

    -Sandbox Mode: Build your dream theme park with any worry and everything unlocked. Your imagination is the limit here, and a perfect place to work on those real theme park recreations.

    -5 biomes: 5 different places to build your park between Tropical, Desert, Grassland, Alpine and Deciduous, each with different lighting and terrain textures.

    -28 flatrides, including the teacups, the giant crazy ferris wheel, a top spin, venetian carroussel, and many more.

    -28 coasters, including B&M inverted, hyper and floorless, Maurer Söhne's spinning coaster, Vekoma's mine train, Arrow's corckscrew... And of course the giants, CCI's wooden coaster and super new RMC's hybrid coaster.

    -7 tracked rides, including transports like the Railroad, Monorrail, waterides like the log flumes and river rapids, and dark ride tracks.

    -Lots of shops and other utilities to give your guests what the want. All this shops can be rethemed by you to whatever thing you like.

    -6 different themes between Modern, Pirate, Fairytale, Western, Sci Fi and the Art Shapes. 6 themes only you say? Well, all this themes were made so you can mix and match to get completly new ones. Steampunk? Art noveau? Vikings? Greek? make a mona lisa piece by piece with the art shapes? Everything that you can imagine, you can make it. The sky is the limit!

    -10 mascots including Coaster King, Gulpee Rex, Princess Amelie, Ellie the Sherif... and a mascot created, thanks to an open contest at Frontier, by yours truly, Foxy Coffee, the hipster fox coffee lover with a heart of gold!

    -Event triggers for animated objects in the game, like lights and animatronics. Create your perfect dark rides!

    -Use your own music to make onboard audio for your coasters, flat rides and track rides, or just use it around the park.

    -The audio is one of the most incredible things you will find in the game. Go to guest level and here the sounds so similar to a real theme park you will be surprised is a game. Or hear the incredible work put into the sounds of all coasters and rides, that feel like the real thing. No more vacuum cleaning coaster sounds, hooray!

    -Full steam workshop integration so you can download buildings of the Planet Coaster community, great for looking for inspiration or just becuase you prefer to manage your parks instead of building it but still want it to look good.

    Most importantly, Planet Coaster is a game planned to last for multiple years, just like RCT3 did. What this means is, Frontier is going to offer free updates (rides, improvements on gameplay...) and full expansions (completly new gameplay expriences like soaked! and wild! for RCT3), during its whole life. Does this mean the game released is not complete? NOPE, the game has everything working now, has every type of ride that will be expanded for years to come, and has as much gameplay as the old RCT1 and 2.
    For now we know Go Karts is one of the next rides they want to include when they finish it.
    And as Frontier says, if the game sells, content will keep coming.

    Is this game available for Mac?
    Nope.

    Where are the security guards from older games?
    Security guards were planned (theres multiple dev videos showing them) and then scrapped because they weren't any fun (not surprising as they were the most basic and unfun management thing from the originals). Frontier has said that they will try to implement them in another way to have them in the game in the future, so stay tuned.

    And weather?
    Planned and working on it. Same as umbrellas of course.

    Why is the path system not doing what I want?
    The path system takes some time to get accoustumed too, but once you get it, you will be able to make every path you want with all the improvements thay have been adding during the beta, including the olds RCT square style. Just remember to do not use angle snap when wanting to go more advanced, and use Z to make diagonals.

    I want to take a screen without the UI. How?
    Press "Right Ctrl+Right Shift+G" and voila!

    And any recommendation to upload my screens to GAF or any other internet site?
    I recommend using abload, will not compress your beautifull screenshots.

    Wheres UGC, RCTW has it, why not Planet Coaster?
    Maybe planned for the distant future, they want people to play creating new themes or whatever you want using the tools in the game. Also RCTW is crap and they included it so people finished the game for them. And who knows, maybe unofficial modding comes to the scene like with RCT3.

    It's the game Steam only?
    Yes, because one of the most important aspects is the use of the steam workshop to create blueprints and share parks.

    Is there a limit for the blueprints?
    You can import to your game as many blueprints as you want, but theres a 2000 piece limit for blueprints when you create them, so take that into account when you want to make a building for sharing it.

    Ive seen someone on youtube creating an AMAZING building, but when I try it seems difficult and takes too much time.
    Remember that Rome wasn't build on a day, guys like Silvarret and me take 10 hours to create some of the most complex buildings, sometimes even more. It may look easy and fast on timelapse, but theres a lot of work to be done. Remember, be creative and have fun, thats the most important thing. Also lots of members of the community will help you making realisitc theme parks if you need help.
