Finally! Besides just that now you can do fountain effects for topspins, the possibilities are endless.

In case you might've been under a rock, the update released well before this week. I've barely been able to scratch the surface with the new stuff due to work (wanna play with those billboards), but here's clarification on the new ride types within a crappy park I made:

Gnarler
Millenium Flyer trains

Viper One
Intamin Impulse coaster, which allows custom track directions and a full circuit, but still only one train.

Power Up
Maurer AG coaster that can launch and/or have Skyloop lifthill. Also only runs one train.

Bolt
Arrow-type train on boomerang track

Iron Claw
Inward facing pendulum

Blackout
The legendary Looping Starship!

Sky Watcher
Fixed-height observation tower. I heard in stream that they wanted to make one where you could customize the height of, but it was too much trouble to do.

I do hope in a future update that they can fix that for the 3 tower rides they have, it's a shame you can't adjust the height. That and some of the pre-themes on some of the original rides sadly limit what you can do with them sometimes. I always wanted to theme the uni coaster to barrels if it got a default skin in a ship wreck area.

Also the log flume drop. The fixed angle looks terrible.

I hope they allow tighter turns for dark rides.

I hope everyone with suggestions is also telling the team. They are super connected to the community and they are listening. But, they are likely not reading this thread.

I posted my suggestion for tighter dark ride turns on the Frontier Forums. I know some requests or suggestions might take long to fulfill since they're busy doing a lot of other things for the game. I can wait though. There's already so much to enjoy. :b

Game updated with a bug fix update after the big summer update. Most are minor fixes to the game, but one stood out to me especially
Ride/Coaster Bug Fixes
...
-Added inversions to the Tiamat coaster

So now the Intamin wing coaster (e.g. Skyrush) finally gets the flexibility it's been missing all along! And I actually get to properly use the darn ride for once.

Premium DLC's have arrived in the form of "Construction Kits!"




Very happy that they're tacked-on facades instead of things players might need to buy for 'a complete game experience.'
