Creating a Parking
Here is an article that explains the
way to "hack" a parking lot in Rollercoaster Tycoon. The hack itself
is a difficult hack and can take a while if you intend to make it
a large one. Another thing is that if done wrong problems can occur
and since once the hack is made, the "cars" cannot be deleted
so it is a very wise idea to save an extra copy of your park before
you attempt to make the hack.
Below, there are two sets of directions:
the first one is for people trying to do this for the first time
and basically creates one vehicle. The second set of directions
is for those who want to make a large parking lot in one step. This
saves a lot of time but can be more confusing so it is recommended
that you get used to doing it the "simple" way first.
- Open the beast trainer. You must
have the new version that comes with the option to "Sink Scenery".
- Click on the Begin Special Build
- Build a car ride (or any other ride
type but car ride works best) with one station block and put the
entrance and exit on opposite sides
- Use the Beast trainer or Dragons
trainer to modify the ride you just built.
- Put it on power launch mode with
a low speed.
- Hit the test run button (yellow
light) but immediately after you hit it, click the red one so
the car sits there dormant
- Bring out the Beast trainer and
hit "Sink Scenery".
- The station should now be underground
but the car should remain. If you want to leave it, your done
here but if you want to make a parking lot, keep going...
- Use the Beast trainer and hit "Execute
- Take the footpath tool and build
a footbath (gray looks best) under the vehicle.
- Repeat the step for every car. Once
you get the hang at it you can do this "the advanced way"
Once you get used to the steps above,
you may notice how slow it takes to make a good 30+-car lot. There
is another way to do it, which is basically the same but takes various
shortcuts. Here are the steps…
- Begin special build using the upgraded
- Build as many one-block stations
that you want and put them on power launch mode. When done, hit
the test button, and then turn off by clicking the red button
so the cars just sit there.
- After all your car rides are sitting
there with the vehicle in the station dormant, hit the sink scenery
button and they all should sink at once.
- Finally, hit the "Execute build
through" using the Beast Trainer and build a footpath under all
Once the hack is done you should be
left with a very nice looking parking lot. The only downside is
that once the ride is underground, the ride/car cannot be
deleted. If attempted you will gat an error trapper and your game
will crash. If you are not pleased with the way it came out the
best thing to do is go back to your back up copy and continue.
Once this hack is mastered you can
use it to create many other things such as boats that sit still
over water or "demo cars" as I call them, which are seats thet lie
in front of a coasters queue, and can be sat in by guests.
