Hacking Trains and
Cars without Stations
In this article we will go over how
to make trains appear with out any stations around them. Warning:
It is recommend that you save your game before attempting this hack,
because this can be extremely unstable. Also, we will show several
examples of ways to show the trains.
First, it is extremely important that
you know exactly where you want your train to appear. This is
vital, because once you hack this, the train can not be deleted.
I recommend, that you plan out a small area, hack the trains, and
then go from there.
Now that you have an area selected
and are sure that you want this area to have this done in, we can
start the hacking. Open up Beast 2.3 (Version 2.3 is required for
this hack.) Select begin building and build the station only
(including the entrance and exit. Do not open it yet.)
Select in the ride's menu box, power
launch mode. Now, if your ride is not able to have "power launch
mode" under the selection of operational modes, you will need to
select that in Beast. Go to the rides menu, select modify rides,
select your ride, and then change the operational mode to "power
For either methods, I recommend a launch
speed of 2 mph, if you have it to high your get the trains noise,
like it is moving. (And they shake) So anyone who can select it,
still should change it. Also do not set it to zero, otherwise the
hack will not be successful.
Now that we finally have it under the
right mode, you may want to make sure that your train(s) number
is correct to what you want it. (Don't worry about color, it can
be changed with no error trappers.)
Finally now that you are sure everything
is right, we can hack this. Remember that your ride should not be
open. Go and hit the yellow test button, and then hit the red one
only once. This should make the train appear in the station, with
the restraints up, but not leaving the station.
Go to the landscaping menu in Beast,
then to execute special build mode, and then go to sink scenery,
do not do stack scenery. Give RCT a second to refresh the
graphics (or switch to a different angle of view), and your train
is now at level 7 (if you started at 6).
Now that you have hacked this and it
is appearing, save your game file, under a different name, just
to make sure that no error trappers will occur. Here is how you
can use your train now that is it hacked.
Because the train is one level higher
then the ground it was placed on, you can build a piece(s) of track
below it. This results in a great effect for a transfer track, sitting
outside the station.
If you want to really give it a try,
place one at the start of a coaster's line. These "one car trains"
are used at parks nation wide. I call them "guest test cars," this
are used to determine if a younger guest is able to fit into a coaster
train and ride.
And finally, you could use these if
your making a parking lot.
Remember, you can not delete it now,
and if you do you will get an error trapper.
