Welcome to the July Update!

In this month’s post, we’ll be highlighting our upcoming support for Steam Workshop, the next update and future developments.



Steam Workshop Much to the excitement of many in the community, our next update will include Steam Workshop support for saved games and modular prefabs.

Getting everything up and running proved to be initially troublesome, but the implementation didn’t take as long as we expected. Seeing the Workshop page fill up with some development and community items taken from Discord for testing purposes was incredibly exciting.

Welcome, park managers!

Minor Update 1 is now available! In this patch, we’ve added a number of new features and quality of life changes to help improve the state of the game. This is only the beginning of our journey through Early Access as there will be many more changes to come.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get this update out earlier due to engine related technical issues. Previously hidden problems with Unity have only just revealed themselves due to a significantly larger playerbase with highly varied machine specifications.

Though we are continuing to fight Unity’s rediculously poor loading and memory related management, we’ve made good headway in optimizing the game and implementing custom workarounds. This will be an ongoing process that’s an unfortunate reality of making a game this large... Read more

Welcome, Park Managers!

We’ve been working around the clock to fix some of the main issues regarding performance, and while that’s going to be an ongoing task for us, we’ve located some of the main hotspots regarding high memory usage. This performance improvement update targets some of them by integrating more efficient engine memory utilization, substantially reducing RAM and VRAM across the board. This is going to be especially notable on low end machines, as we hope the game’s going to be less prone to crashing and generally easier to load up.

These are not going to be the last of our efforts on that front, as we’ve still got some further room for memory optimization going forward, as well as some more memory leaks to completely iron out (at the moment most notable by loading in and out of main menu repeatedly).

The good news doesn’t end here! We’ve been religiously testing all of our rendering systems, and were finally able to consistently pin-point the... Read more

We've done a new round of general fixes, and added a much requested input feature: re-bindable camera controls.
