RCTW – Post-Release Update #9: Pathing Updates and Urban PxP!


Hello Tycoons,

As we shared previously, we have continued with our transition of RollerCoaster Tycoon World to a new development support team.  We had to provide the team with the ability to review the code base and to do a wholescale review of the game and subsequently identify the areas where they could best contribute in terms of their work and our following updates.

We are now in a position to present to you our next update which is live now.

With this update, we have made significant improvements to the pathing system (we encourage you to check it out and provide us with feedback!), fixed a number of bugs and have implemented an Urban PxP Pack.

Moving forward, the team will be focusing on continued improvement of game systems and features – please see below the latest items we’ve improved and content we have integrated as part of this update; thanks for your comments and for playing RollerCoaster Tycoon World.


Urban PXP Hero Shet - 992x433



  • [General] – Pathing – Optimized path mesh generation and created algorithm for generation of node points. This allows for more options during path generation.
  • [General] – Pathing – Adjustments for snapping to path to account for updated path construction system. This has reduced a snapping radius to the center of the intersection and added a seamless transition of the path node cursor between a path and its intersection.  It is now possible to connect paths at different distance from the center or a road intersection.
  • [General] – Path collisions modified to improve the experience of path construction. Collisions are less restrictive and provide more options to build paths at different positions and angles.
  • [General] – Fixed a path collision that was preventing construction of legal paths.
  • [General] – Pathing – Deadzone Issue – Where path is not snapped to the path when hovering over the center of the intersection.
  • [General] – An issue where kiosks would disappear randomly.
  • [PXP] – Urban PxP pack integrated.
  • [PXP] – Horror “Deco & Lights” – ‘Spooky Arched Window” fails to move if the player tries to move the asset anywhere.
  • [PXP] – Horror “Deco & Lights” – Rotation Indicator are misplaced for ‘Tall Old Blue Tile Roof’
