View Full Version : I'm so confused.

Hello everyone, first post. As you will see by the question..not only am I new here.. I'm basically new to the game as well.

What I want to do is build a park..everyone's looks so cool. I have honestly no idea where to start, or how to go about it. I've done the in game tutorials..which didn't help all too much. Plus I've browsed the tutorials here, and they seem to help with a few things, but I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so it's all confusing to me.

Would I benefit any from searching for tutorials from previous games? Or should I study real pictures to get ideas of how things should look?

To be honest, I'm 24 (heh) and just started riding coasters..(laugh, go ahead).. so I can't even build a decent one of those.

I'd appreciate any comments I can get. Thanks

Just practice a lot :). The in-game tutorials are good to get a handle on the mechanics of the game, and the scenarios (especially the Soaked ones) are good to see some of the building styles and such. The exchange forum here is also a great source of information, as you're looking through a park thread, if you see something you like, but don't know how to do, simply asking the creator will usualy get your answer :).

Then just go ahead into the sandbox and play around. Do a little research on basic coasters and stuff to make those a bit more realistic (I myself can't get a steel one to look right >< but I can make decent woodies). Play with all the building pieces to see how they fit. Don't be afraid to experiment either, mix themes and styles to achieve different looks and such.

Also check into the veterans forum for some tutorial user made and get some idea's here: http://members.fortunecity.com/scourge/galactic.htm there are several pages to click through via the bottom links on each page

Am I missing any tutorials on entrances? I saw Skippers tutorial on buildings and it seems awfully elaborate for my purpose.

using my tutorials though, teaches you all you need to do entries based on what you learn. Might want to go through that site as well for more idea's.

In sandbox you can't do any research,I take it because there's no money involved,so basically the game gives you all the rides that are available right off the bat.
