Just woke up and whoop there it is! Thanks a lot @Frontier for yet another extansion! U r the best, in Frontier I trust! Love u guys and girls! Keep on the great work. and get some rest now [praise]
 
Thanks Will and Team Frontier for all your hard work. There's loads of goodies here to play with and that's just the free update. And I can't wait to crack the Vintage pack open. It really is a work of art.
 
I'm at work, but I still connected to my PC via TeamViewer and installed the update and bought the pack
Tonight, I'm going to see all of it, I will be able to improve the city part of my Sonic R park ^^
 
Thank you soooooo much all for this wonderful and awesome expansion, for me the best pack so far. Great rides, small details and pieces. [up][cool]
 
Great, Thanks so much for the effort you put in this game days after days, months after months, seasons after...[big grin]
By the way, The "I" Shortcut did exist before...It's not new. [haha]
 
Ohhhhhh wow, that early - amazing! Great surprise :)
THANK YOU soooooooo much Frontier and all the people behind the scenes that make this possible and the game better.
And as well thanks a lot for the bugfixes! I know that that's a lot of work, and I'm very thankful for your dedication!
 
I'm really liking this new update and DLC. Can't wait to play around with it later today. Also in today's live stream about the new update Ed mentioned that they are working on more content for Planet Coaster which is great news. Thanks to everyone at Frontier for a job well done with this new Vintage Pack.
 
Thanks, Frontier! This is some great stuff, much of which has many applications outside the vintage theme. And I really appreciate the bug fixes, especially those that fixed the white parts :)
 
I'm excited and like what I saw on the streams so far. In the future please announce such reveal-streams from yourself and Youtubers, especially when they are off schedule. Please announce them here in these OFFICIAL FORUMS. All the hype passed me because I only realized today that there were dozens of streams yesterday.[rolleyes]Kinda sad really.[sad] As far as I know there was no official announcement in these forums. Please change that in future!!!
 
To the developers--thank you so very much for all your hard work on this project! It's just so beautiful. I love all the surprises like the free support object set and all the lovely new effects... especially the fireflies and butterflies. And the Aces Sky Coaster is truly remarkable and accurate (I know because I compared it carefully to photos of the one at Knoebels. Ha ha! [wink])
