I'm new to the game. At work right now, can't wait to get home and dig in. I quickly tried it last night in sandbox mode and noticed that the money was unlimited in that mode. Is there a sandbox type mode that has a set amount of cash? I know there are scenarios and stuff, but I like to work on a big park without a time limit. But I want to have the same restrictions/challenges that a real park has. Hope that makes sense.

If it doesn't have the mode, can I create a scenario that will make this possible?

I think you're stuck creating a scenario for that.

essentially if you just create your own scenerio and set the money limit, everything else will be just like sandbox aslong as you make all the rides, shops, and scenery available from the get go.

Well I tried the scenarios and I am having fun so far. I'm glad that the level doesn't end when you complete it. One thing I am having trouble with is making buildings. I wanted to make a simple restaurant with a staircase up to the front door. (Meaning it's slightly raised above ground) I coundn't figure out how to place stalls on the raised floor or attach walls to it.

I would do that in the building editor, save it and then plop it in your park when you want to.

Does that mean it's not possible in the game? I usually like to build my buildings according to the landscape I have available.

you can do it, but the only problem is, what ever is raised, has to have a square on each side also raised, or at least close, for example if you just raised one square, and left everything around it low, you cant place wall on the same sqaure as the stall, it has to go on the inner edge of the surrounding squares, so everything around the stall needs to be even, i hope that was helpful and not confusing

Check into some of the threads in the Veteran's Forum for some building tips. Also look here: http://members.fortunecity.com/scourge/galactic1.htm for a further expansion on building.

Glad to see you got your Florida bought game to work in the frozen north!! <LOL>

Oh boy, that site was loaded with popups and spyware. I can't visit that site here at work, and really would like to avoid it on my home computer as well. Thanks for the link in any case.

Edit: Yes I did eventually get a new code from Atari, so I'm good to go now. It was painful to wait for that though, haha!

Spyware? No one else mentioned problems. Fortunecity has been around for "eons" Yes, there are pop ups, but a blocker takes care of that. (Security settings may be too low).

Some or most of the tips etc are also posted on MTTM which s a private domain

Interesting site, but that music is SO annoying :bulb:
Thanks for the link!
