Love the duelling!!!Getting in early as I've been 'working' from home today...
Had a lot of fun putting this together and managed to accidentally break the world Inversion record.
Features a steep indoor drop followed by an inversion, like Saw. The rest of the ride is best described as a launched version of The Smiler - on steroids. There's a dueling section after the interlocking corkscrews and also a section where three trains whizz past each other. Most of the inversions were made manually so there's a couple of ropey transitions.
Biggest Drop: 135ft
Max speed: 73mph
It's part of the 'classic rides collection' DLC, which is available on console AFAIKI am not sure how I am going to do this. I build on the console version of Planet Coaster and I don't have this coaster type... I only have the Eurofighter.
I had the same issue but the Classic Rides DLC was on sale at £4 so went for it.I am not sure how I am going to do this. I build on the console version of Planet Coaster and I don't have this coaster type... I only have the Eurofighter.
I did indeed buy a new PC. I bought it in August 2021 (after I finished Globala), and the stats I went for were as follows:
It really does make the world of difference... a 300% increase in frame rates is a huge improvement!!!!I did indeed buy a new PC. I bought it in August 2021 (after I finished Globala), and the stats I went for were as follows:
It was a PCSpecialist system that cost around £1,350 on its own, but with all the associated peripherals on the side (screen, keyboard et al.), the overall purchase set me back a little over £1,500. It certainly wasn’t cheap, but I’ve got to say that it was a very worthwhile purchase!
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (Hexa-core, 3.7GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz)
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (12GB VRAM)
- 16GB RAM
- 2TB HDD & 512GB SSD
However, I’m not sure that my new PC is the sole cause of the vastly higher frame rates I’m exhibiting in this competition. Each entry I’m doing for this competition is vastly lower in complexity than the Globala map I was filming the dark ride POVs in; one coaster with vastly less theming than any individual ride I did in Globala will definitely take less processing power than a fuller park with more heavily themed rides (that wasn’t even that close to being fully completed at the stage I assume you’re referring to, based on when you commented on that thread), and I think even my previous system would have exhibited fairly adequate performance with the type of park this competition requires.
With that being said, however, I am noticing that frame rates tend to be somewhere between 3 and 4 times higher in any given situation on my new PC than they were on my old one, so I think it would definitely play a role in my improved FPS, for sure. For instance, the completed Worlds of Globala park with no guests gets 15-20FPS on my new system, whereas it topped out at 5FPS on my old one…
If you’re interested, Nicky, here are 2 videos of how that park you’re referring to looks on my new PC, as a point of reference:
Wow; that’s one impressive setup you’ve got there!It really does make the world of difference... a 300% increase in frame rates is a huge improvement!!!!

Though I am ready to do some upgrades, have an R9 5900x, ready to go in, but I need to pick an AIO cooler to pair it with first... I'm looking at the Corsair H150i Elite LCD, and think I'll pull the trigger soon. And I want to build a custom mechanical keyboard.
Here's my tower...

And the setup in my 2 different flight sim modes... Airbus, with the stick, and the yoke for almost every other aircraft haha...
Excuse the mess, not many people get to see inside my man cave!!!

(As a side note, If you look closely you'll see a 'PCSpecialist' box from my previous computer, that was a R5 3600, 16gb, GTX 1660... I gave it to my daughter and built my own haha.)
And this is the missus PC... I built this one too... (This pic is pre GPU Upgrade)

(Bloody awful case to cable manage in, especially as I needed to use the HDD cage!!! Hence the cables at the front... They'll be better hidden once I get her a decent SSD!)
It's extremely easy mate, go watch some Linus Tech Tip videos and you'll be fine Just don't drop anything!Wow; that’s one impressive setup you’ve got there!
I’ve never quite felt bold enough to build my own PC… even though I’m studying Computer Science, I don’t think I know enough about PC specs or how to put a PC together to take that kind of plunge.
As my current system is less than a year old and decently specced to my knowledge, I hopefully shouldn’t be needing to think about a new system any time soon, but when I do, I guess PC building is something I could consider…It's extremely easy mate, go watch some Linus Tech Tip videos and you'll be fine Just don't drop anything!
I've been building them since I was a kid, and it's honestly never been easier, back in the day there were so many compatibility issues between parts that should be compatible, nowadays there's none of that...
Pick a Processor, find an appropriate motherboard (Start with a standard ATX board and Case, as these are both less fiddly to build with, and often offer more IO,) and from there you pretty much only need to know whether it's DDR4 or 5, and how many M.2's you can shove in the thing. (Most builds now will be using boards and cpus that support PCI-e 4.0, but look out for it nonetheless.)
You'll find your recommended PSU wattage on your GPU specs, best to go up 100 or 200 watts from that...
And don't forget the RGB... The general rule is you get 1 extra FPS per RGB Diode
