RCTW – Post-Release Update #1

Hello Tycoons,

Welcome to our first post-release update of RCTW, and thank you to all who have been playing and building parks since launch. In this update we have a plethora of fixes and optimizations to make the RCTW experience even better!

Firstly, we’re excited to add a feature that many tycoons have requested: No collision on scenery assets! Now you’ll be able to place scenery items exactly how and where you want them. We can’t wait to see what your peeps will encounter in your new parks. Remember to share your new creations via Steam Workshop and utilize the enhanced creativity that this brings.

Secondly, we are making the Egypt Piece-by-Piece pack available to all players, while also adding a ton of new pieces to bring even more life to your Egyptian -inspired creations.

We’ll be rolling out another update before Christmas that will bring some fun new content to the game along with more bug fixes and polish.

In the meantime, read on for details of the contents for this latest patch along with our full bug list.

Cheers,
Team RCTW
