Indoorlands: Update 0.8.0 with editor for own rides and sandbox-mode released
The update 0.8.0 with ride editor and sandbox mode for the indoor park management simulator Indoorlands is now available for Linux on Steam.
Update 0.8.0 - Build your own rides or go play in the sandbox
Today is the day. Our probably most influential Early Access update for "Indoorlands" is now available. A little pre-Christmas present for you
Create Your Ride
The editor has been available on the "experimental" branch for quite a while, but now you get the full "Create Your Ride" experience in the normal game as well. It took us a lot of effort, but now you can use the self-made rides in your park and hopefully impress your visitors.
If you don't want to impress the visitors, maybe you want to share your creations with others? You can now do that easily via the workshop integration. We are so excited to see what you will create (what we have seen so far [url=https://discord.gg/jdNCUY8CCX]was already very impressive)!
At this point, a big thank you again to everyone who has tested the editor so extensively and given us feedback!
Since the Early Access release of "Indoorlands" we received a lot of requests. Perhaps the most mentioned wish was that the game should have a sandbox mode. Today the time has come: You can now choose if it should be a "career" or a "sandbox" park when creating a new park.
You can make a few settings when creating the sandbox park to customize the mode to your needs. Do you want infinite money or just an increased starting amount? Do you want to keep climbing milestone levels or does the system get in the way of unleashing your creativity? You can choose.
We have found that parks eventually reach their limits, as there is hardly enough space to satisfy all needs. Besides, you surely want to place your own built rides in the park now and be able to enjoy the sandbox mode even more.
Therefore we decided to increase the park size significantly. There are now 17 instead of 6 unlockable areas in the park, so the total park size has grown by 122%. To make this possible, we had to make some major performance changes, but we think the expansion is ready for you now.
Ho ho ho!
How could we release an update so close to Christmas and not offer any matching content? Not at all! That's why you can now find some wintry design possibilities in "Indoorlands".
