    Re: Roller Coaster Games

    My favorite is RCT3 - Platinum. I see it's for sale on Amazon for about $15 and I know you can find it at either WalMart or Target for about $20 since I bought a backup copy of it about 6 months ago. The fact that you can still find it for sale in stores some 7+ years after it came out is is kind of amazing but it was such a good game that it keeps selling. It has yet to be surpassed as the all-in-one package for roller coaster gaming IMHO. ( meaning you can find games that let you build a coaster only but not much of a park, you can find games that let you build a park but not too much along the lines of coaster design. )

    I built Disneyland in RCT1 back in '99 ( and got linked to Disney's Disney.go.com site back in the day ) and currently am 95% done building all of Disneyland in RCT3. I can't give accolades to this park/coaster builder nearly enough. I'd recommend it and the price is more than fair.

    I have to agree RCT3 Platinum is really fun (and addicting). Would recomend!

    Re: Roller Coaster Games

    For a sim? I wouldn't think so but I should openly admit that I like the game enough I might not be an impartial source. Once you're in the first-person ride mode it looks great. When you're back to the top-down-3/4-view mode the graphics are about as best as can be expected. Honestly, my Win 7 64-bit comp with only 4GB of RAM and a newish 512MB video card sometimes has trouble running it unless I set the graphic levels on the video card down nice and low. I've never seen how good it could look at it's best with a top-notch video card and 12GB or more of RAM.

    Here's a decent screencap of what someone else did. It's enough to convey an example.

    The thread feels closed on that note, but now that I'm home I still feel inclined to post some pics now that I'm home.

    We'll know if RCT3 and my abilities are any good or not based on whether or not you can tell where these are supposed to be.
