Planet Coaster Cheats
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:59 PM »
Here is a list of the Planet Coaster Cheats. Feel free to add to this list as more are released.


Bollard – User Controllable Go-Karts
Vroom vroom! Race around your tracks all by yourself with this amazing cheat!
How to activate: Rename the Go-Karts track to “BOLLARD” and select the first person ride cam mode of one of the karts. You can then use the W A S D keys to drive the kart yourself (don’t forget to honk with SHIFT!).

Andy Chappell – Increase speed on a kart for a designated guest
Get out of this chap’s way! This speed demon wants victory!
How to activate: Rename a guest to “ANDY CHAPPELL” before entering the ride, for that particular guest’s kart to go faster.

Lockettman – Turn on physics for the Security Guard
Impressed by in-game coaster crashes? Let your security guard do the same to your park guests with this cheat.
How to activate: Rename a security guard to “LOCKETTMAN” to turn on physics which will cause guests to fly off when hit by the security guard during a criminal pursuit.

David Getley – Increase spawn rate of miscreants
Broken benches, chasing criminals, unhappy guests... Disturbances are getting out of hand!
How to activate: Rename a staff member to “DAVID GETLEY” to have an increased spawn rate for miscreants in your park. Think you’re up for the challenge?

James Taylor – Low coaster friction
Let your coasters go just a tad faster with this cheat – for science, of course.
How to activate: Rename a guest to “JAMES TAYLOR” to reduce coaster friction slightly.

Andy Fletcher – No coaster friction
For some real head-spinning action, use this cheat to remove coaster friction ALTOGETHER!
How to activate: Rename a guest to “ANDY FLETCHER” to remove coaster friction completely.

McLinthe – Vomiting bug...
“I shouldn’t have had this CosmicCow Shake before going on this ride...! Chief Beef causing me grief!”
How to activate: Rename a shop to “MCLINTHE” to have all your guests think the “I’ve thrown up” thought, and causing wandering guests to produce vomit on the spot... better hire some cleaners for this one!

TegidCam – Invisible guest camera
We told you it’d be back...
How to activate: Rename a guest or staff member to “TEGIDCAM” to enter the camera mode.

Steve Wilkins – Increase breakdown rate of all rides
Be sure to have enough mechanics around when you try this one!
How to activate: Rename a staff member to “STEVE WILKINS” to increase the breakdown rate of all rides. You won’t notice anything immediately with this one, but if a ride already has a chance of breaking down, that rate will be further increased.

Frontier – Stop rides from breaking down
Farewell technical issues! No more missing out on revenue due to faulty rides!
How to activate: Rename a ride “FRONTIER” to reduce the breakdown rate of all rides to zero!

You mean we can make an actual real life recreation of Deja Vu?
If it doesn't include either Roller coasters, Music or Hockey... count me out....

No, it's more like releasing a disaster in Sim City.  You get park-wide breakdowns.

It's actually fairly easy to make an individual coaster break down a lot, though.  Breakdown frequency is a function of ride reliability, the frequency of inspections, and the skill of the mechanics doing the inspections.  So, if you want a specific ride to break down a lot, do the following:

1.  Ensure, via work rosters, that only a very junior mechanic ever inspects this ride.
2.  On the coaster's maintenance tab, make inspections very infrequent.
3.  Build the ride with "low" reliability.
4.  Never renovate the ride.

Ride reliability is a function of the number of "moving parts"--stations, the number of cars, brakes, lifts, traction wheels, etc.--plus also seemingly the overall size, speed, and G forces created.  Most flat rides, especially the tamer ones, have "high" reliability and you can't change that.  Most coasters and track rides, unless really complex, will have "average" reliability, as well some of the larger, more extreme flats.  Generally, only really big, complex rides have "low" reliability.  For example, a 5-train (3 cars each) racing coaster with 2 lifts and 9 block brakes.

Each tick of the game clock, each ride has a chance to break down.  On a ride's maintenance tab, there's a health bar.  Over time, this health bar decreases to zero.  The lower the ride's reliability, the faster the health bar goes down.  The lower the health bar, the greater the chance the ride has of breaking down each time it's checked.  IOW, the health bar is not a measure of time to failure, it's showing the odds of failure happening at the current point in time.  If you renovate a ride, its health bar returns to max.

The health bar does not appear to increase when a mechanic inspects the ride.  Thus, it appears that the amount of time since the last inspection and the skill of the mechanic doing it instead give a DRM to the normal breakdown check.
