Yay!! I can't wait to get home and play around with this all :D

And wow, there are really a LOT of pieces in the DLC!!
And and and ... the friction slider is already being added? That was pretty quick!!

I don't know where to start looking when i get home :D
 
Woohoo, friction sliders!! And its a game option, not a cheat?? [big grin][big grin][big grin][up]
 
227 scenery items - including 46 animated items, 18 special effects, 31 scenery items with billboard functions and 2 path extras
124 building pieces

There's no way of getting a complete overview with pictures?
It's a bit of a generic sum up.

So playing around with the huntsman is pretty tricky. The motion controls don't show a visual ghost like we had in RCT3, so it is really a lot of trial and error. You just have to randomly move the sliders and hope it works the way you want it to. Also you need to have a long station to have multiple cars on the track, which isn't something that i dislike, tracked rides should not have this limitation in my opinion.

The Hoax ghost train works a little wreird as well, the game creates trains of three but they don't run through the track as trains, but maybe that is just how the real counterpart of it used to be.

The scenery items look amazing, as well as the different billboard items. Love those!

Other track rides don't have that limitation. The car ride for example can hold a lot of cars. Given on the condition you have a complete track.

Maybe it works the same way for the huntsman?
