Interview with Sarah

In this interview, Red Phoenix interviews Sarah, co-webmaster of Tycoon Resource.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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).


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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 games.


Red Phoenix: 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.


Red Phoenix: 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!!!!!
