What was the PC expansion?No Penguines (and other - flying - birds nor other diving animals) until an expansion/pach that adds a propper "3D navigation IA". There is no way around this, sorry.
And unfortunately, this still will take time. The game just came out without such a quite complicated mechanism. It certainly won't be added so soon after the launch, when there are still many "conventional" animals to add.
How long did it take until the first "full" Planet Coaster expansion? One year?
(People may request diving/flying animals as much and as often as they want, express their disappointment about their omission as heartbreaking as they can - it won't change anything! And I am pretty sure, the Frontier team did perceive the vibes already. They are not that subtle ...)
None of them live in the Arctic. The only penguins remotely in the Northern hemisphere are Galapagos penguins.
Correction, I saw Hamboldt penguins.Only seven out of 18 penguin species live in colder environments,so they don't necessarily need to link penguins to some colder climate pack.
Smaller penguin species like the Humboldt Penguin are actually more liked by guests(especially children),because they are way more "agile",tend to swim more etc. than e.g. the bigger King Penguin.
I can't think of any zoo that has emperor penguins. King penguins seem to be the more popular choice because they can cope in less rigid climates (king penguins live on the sub-Antarctic islands, still within the Antarctic Ciricle but not in the same range as the emperors). Zoo Tycoon used the emperor because it's more recognisable, but nowadays people in general seem to be more familiar with a wider range of penguins. If PZ introduces them, I'd hope for the king over the emperor, as it's more in line with real zoos.Correction, I saw Hamboldt penguins.
I kinda hope they include the emperor penguin tho, they're gorgeous, big and a classic. I'm not that hyped for others, I don't mind if they are in the game, but I really hope we get emperor penguins.
