Interview with Sarah
In this interview, Red Phoenix interviews
Sarah, co-webmaster of Tycoon
Where did your first hear about Rollercoaster Tycoon?
Sarah: I was (and still am)
a huge fan of Transport Tycoon, so I heard about RCT as it was also
by Chris Sawyer.
After you had a chance to play it, what did you think of it?
Sarah: I thought it was very
addictive and a lot of fun (and still is).
What do you think of all the "anti-cheat" code Chris Sawyer placed
in the RCT games?
Sarah: Well I'm not keen on
cheating anyway, so I'm all for it.
Recently, Infogrames publicly announced the production of RollerCoaster
Tycoon 2. What are some things you'd like to see added?
Sarah: Well from what I have
seen that they are adding, I'm really looking forward to the new
scenery, the new coaster building tool, and the new rides of course.
How did you get involved in Tycoon Resource?
Sarah: I used to help out behind
the scenes on another MGON site (The Sims Resource) so when the
site manager position came up they asked me if I was interested.
When Carrie left Tycoon Resource, and you ended up with the role
of webmaster there, did you feel any pressure?
Sarah: Well actually it was
pretty scary at first because I was coming into a community that
was already established. Fortunately for me though James, my co-site
manager started at the same time, so we were both able to help each
other out which made it a lot easier.
What's the most difficult aspect of maintaining Tycoon Resource?
Sarah: The worst thing is when
something major goes wrong, such as a database problem, because
we are unable to fix those ourselves. We have a technical team at
MGON who deals with those sorts of things. Other than that I think
the hardest thing is just the fact that it is very time consuming
to keep the website constantly up to date.
What can we look forward (in the future) to at Tycoon Resource?
Sarah: As well as RCT2, we hope
to extend the site in the future to be able to cover other Tycoon
What RCT-related sites do you visit on a typical daily basis?
Sarah: I visit RCT Station and
RCT Inc. (our affiliates) and now that RCT2 has been announced,
I will be keeping a close eye on the official site.
If you could be someone (alive or dead) for one day, who would it
be, and why?
Sarah: LOLů..probably Bill Gates
because I love shopping and I could go on a huge spending spree!!!!!
