Interview with Mark Raybould

In this interview, Red Phoenix interviews Mark Raybould, the download manager at RCT Competition.

Red Phoenix: Where did your first hear about Hasbro's Rollercoaster Tycoon? And what did you think of it once you played it?

Mark Raybould: I got the orginal demo off a magazine called Ultimate PC (i think) and just got addicted.

Red Phoenix: What's your opinion of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2?

Mark Raybould: It is a great game, not much new features, but it deserves a buy no matter what, thats why i brought it and i'm addicted to it.

Red Phoenix: What do you think of the plugins system (importing scenery) RollerCoaster Tycoon 2?

Mark Raybould: It's not a bad idea, lets people to create new and exciting stuff! I'm no good at graphics so i can't do any at all. But in all, it is great what they are doing now.

Red Phoenix: It looks like an RCT 2 expansion pack will be released in May 2003. What would you like to see specifically in the game?

Mark Raybould: I would like to see a Top Scan type ride in their, they are cool, not to mention if you ride it 3 times in a row without a break you can getsick easily :D

Red Phoenix: What sort of RCT/RCT 2 utility would you like to see developed that isn't already available?

Mark Raybould: Ability to have the 'Have Fun' scenario goal in the scenario editor. It would be nice.

Red Phoenix: What do you think of the RCT community right now?

Mark Raybould: It is quite cool with some vetrans like Carrie Holsinger starting up, what i say, the 'New Tycoon Resource' called Tycoon Match.

Red Phoenix: What would you ask Chris Sawyer if you had the opportunity?
Mark Raybould: What inspired you to make RCT?

Red Phoenix: What's your favorite real park recreation that was made by someone in the community?

Mark Raybould: I don't honestly have one, but i am working on Nemesis: Inferno which is opening at Thorpe Park on 5th April 2003

Red Phoenix: What's your favorite real track recreation that was made by someone in the community?

Mark Raybould:
It has to be Thorpe Park 2002, i can't remember who made it, but it was wicked! And it was made for RCT:LL

Red Phoenix: For those who don't know you, can you tell us a bit about yourself and what you do at RCT Competition.com?

Mark Raybould: I'm the downloads manager, adding downloads for the site! It would be great if i had some downloads. any way, i am a student at the moment studying 2 GNVQ's. I also love being on the computer at home, playing RCT2 (Got up to the 17 inversion Barrier), Fifa2K3, Unreal Tournament, and downloading music. I also work as well, and i love acting on stage. Also i am from England. (English rock!)

Red Phoenix: What plans do you have for your site?

Mark Raybould: I have no plans really, the site was made by TheGreatOne. But i want to get more downloads on there and more resources.

Red Phoenix: If you could be someone (alive or dead) for one day, who would it be, and why?

Mark Raybould: Difficult one! I would be John Wardley, he is such a great RollerCoaster designer! I love all his ride creations, like Nemesis, Oblivion, Air, Colossus for example.
