Having poked around looking at what all the more knowledgeable people have been saying, I'm doubtful much if any content cross-over will happen.  Certainly no PZ animals and their associated mechanics in PC.  At most, maybe some rides, shops, and building sets (probably more from PC into PZ than vice versa), but even this seems doubtful.

So, as I've suspected for a long time, PC is in maintenance mode.  Periodic bug-fixes as needed, MAYBE a few more DLCs, but otherwise, it is what it is.  Which is fine with me.  It's a huge box of Lego that lets you build a nearly infinite variety of things, so can keep us quite busy for years to come.  I wish it had a few more rides (mostly kiddie stuff) and that certain things like paths weren't so restrictive, but otherwise I'm quite happy with it.  In terms of long-term playabiliy, PC is definitely one of the wisest game purchases I've made in my life.

In happier news, there's a pretty solid rumor that PC2 is actually in the works, although it will be a few years at least.  Which is also fine--PC will hold my attention that long.  So, even if you're not interested in PZ for its own sake, at least keep an eye on it as a foretaste of the sorts of fundamental game improvements that will (hopefully) someday appear in PC2 :)
Very well said. I may get PZ just to tool around and see things that I wish could be in PC...then feel bummed...then go back to PC to have fun with what we have....waiting for PC2 to be happy again.

True or false: The word ‘escalate’ did not exist until the invention of the escalator in 1944.
A: True
B: False
Believe it or not....
A: True

Looking at the screen shots on the game webpage...looks like weather is in this game. there is a wolf shot with snow falling and a bear shot with rain falling.

Taking a step back for a little bit as I finally have the Crocodile Creek videos completed.

Here is a "from above" video ride-through.

Hmm, interesting news.

I see LOTS of connection with PC.  It's the same Cobra engine, the same path, terrain, scenery, and building systems, just new building sets.  I'm sure the peeps behave pretty much identically so there will be the same shops, the same staff, and the same crime systems.  The only really new thing is that the zoo animals appear to be  a type of free-range peep instead of animatronics, and you'll no doubt have to provide for their needs and keep them happy the same way you do for peeps.

This being the case, I see no fundamental reason why you couldn't mix PC and PZ elements in the same park.  In fact, I think this is probably the plan.  I have exactly zero interest in building a stand-alone zoo but I'd snap PZ up in a heartbeat if you could mix and match them.  I doubt I'm alone in this sentiment and I'm sure Frontier knows many feel this way, so it would be in their interests to make this happen.

Does anybody here play Jurassic World, the dinosaur zoo game?  Is that the same engine as PC or is it its own thing?  If its own thing, then the use of the PC engine for PZ makes me think crossovers are part of the plan.
I agree 100% with your feelings on this. My initial thought is that this will not be combined but be a separate game. It already has its own forum section on the official forums and the wording of Frontiers announcement makes it sound like its own 'animal'. I really don't know if I can find myself splitting my time between two games like this. I would always be wanting what one game has that the other does not. It is weird how this is looking.

I see the zoo game has a train, new fences, scenery, etc. I'm really torn about this right now. if it was all being rolled up together (like an expansion pack) then I'm all in....but right now....hmmmmmm

I've never been sure if the music is dynamic or whether they just wrote the coaster music (as opposed to other types) to fit the average coaster.  Either way, it's a nifty trick ;)
its clearly changing. I almost couldn't believe it. I will be testing this just to be sure.

So, I thought I knew this game pretty well...until today I discovered something new. I don't really use the in game music on my coasters all that much...if at all. I did try using it on one I'm working on now. I had no clue that the music is slower/more mellow when the coaster goes slow and then speeds up and get more exciting as the coaster goes faster...then slows down again when the coaster slows. I'm truly amazed at this.

Really?  Well, still looks quite good   :D  So I went back and looked again, and I see that by connecting a "natural" path to a flat, you can make the ride's baseplate invisible to see the ground underneath.  I had no idea.  Thanks for another idea to steal.
yep - and its paintable as well like any natural path or terrain.

lots of crazy work done on the terrain so far. I love it and the details with the terrain that you can do in this game.

Whoa. Took me a while to go through this post. Lots of good work here. I especially like the faux water idea under the octopus ride. Very creative.

Your use of billboard ground surfaces is awe-inspiring.  And that whole area around the Soaring Eagles fits together quite well.  Controlled chaos.
Not sure if you are talking about the walkways around this current area, but if you are, these are not billboards this time. This painted terrain using the in game terrain colors.

Great build video. You have an impeccable skill for using pieces in the game very creatively. The end results of your builds are really unique and different as well. Nice work. 

Also, I posted this ride skin on the workshop if you would like it.

And here is a postcard for this ride.

THX guys. AS I have said before...glad you can enjoy something from my game play.

Here are some shots of the Soaring Eagles ride and surrounding area.

This was a great project. you put lots of time into your parks.

What bird lays the smallest eggs in comparison to the mother’s size?
A: House wren
B: Robin
C: The ostrich
D: Hummingbird
Even at 3 lbs. each, the heaviest egg laid by any living bird, its only about 1.5% of the mother’s weight.
By contrast, a common house wren’s egg is about 13% of its mother’s weight.

wow - looks great

Turning down the back alley to get to the queue for Soaring Eagles, we have a pizza place on the right (Adventure Outpost: Pizza Pen by Stopdaan).

The queue goes through and around "Caribbean / tropical house by OxidizedLady"

I had to make some modifications to it to make the queue path fit and go through the garden in the back and up through the building.

They look fantastic!  The guests better watch their step though!  Don't want the park to get sued.   :no:
I know - I figured faux park, faux lawsuits

very nice -Concept is cool and ride is short and sweet.

Had to forego that "geography lesson" :) , was not sure.
And here I'll guess  C.

This will also be a guess, C.

Maybe I'll get lucky with 1 of those :) .
I guess horse as well...largest limbs of the choices

The stone path looks great! Were the 'Ruine' pieces originally intended for walls? I suppose you could've used your patentedTM billboards and gotten similar results, but these have actual depth; and that seems to make all the difference. Good choice. Good usage.

And same here, Bullethead. Welcome back.
Yes - these are wall pieces set on their side. I just liked the look of the uneven pattern and how in some area the actual ground still shows through (because the walls have texture and are not flat walls)

Hey!!! - welcome back and glad to see your wise wit again.

Continuing down the walkway, we have a refreshments stand on the right. The stone path covering is pieces from the 'Ruine' pack by blackmanshadow sunk into the ground.

agreed - these look great. As I said many times this effect

I love those beehive-style thatched roofs. What the heck is that floating stuff in the last pic? (rocks and trees) Avatar's floating mountains?
Ha - that is just temp placed blueprints off in the distance that I may use for other areas of the park. I usually try to avoid getting them in pics as they are not permanent decisions yet. That one just happens to be floating higher.
