With the weather getting colder and the holidays drawing closer, it’s the perfect time to release our all-new FREE Winter Update for you to enjoy!
The Winter Update will be going live today and will automatically become available to you via a Steam update.
This seasonal gift contains the following festive treats – there is something for everyone, so check out the update notes below!
• Collider! The winner of our community poll with 41.57% of the votes - a retro sci-fi ride with 20 swinging gondolas on a horizontal Ferris Wheel that rises to an angle of 87 degrees.
• Bumpin Derby; a long-time favourite has found its way into Planet Coaster! Give a fist bump to these bonkers bumper cars!
• Macro management features added; in the Attraction and Shops tab you can globally set prices, sync shops and open/close attractions.
• There is now an ‘All Staff’ view, which lets you change their salary, training level, roster, and workload all at once!
• You can now also place multiple staff members of the same type simultaneously in your parks!
• Ride/Coaster prestige is now shown on the Info panel and changes with time (initially decreasing and then increasing as the ride gains classic status.) Prestige is also communicated in the form of guest thoughts and notifications.
• A recently used tab has now been added to each browser category.
• A delete path button makes it that it’s easier to change around your pathing!
Three new Scenarios!
Festive King Coaster’s Crackers will let you earn up to nine more stars – be sure to think about your ride prestige...
• Cosmic Cow Ice Cream; get some actual snow cones!
• Gulpee Soda; joining the Gulpee family!
• Missy Good; donut worry, be happy! Missy Good’s sugary goodness will cheer you right up!
• Pipshot; a healthy alternative to the fast food goodness – and there’s three of them! Pipshot Water, Pipshot Juice, and Pipshot Smoothie are going to blow your guests’ minds.
• Pizza Pen; get it while it’s hot and cheesy!
Winter Theme and Scenery Objects
