Virtual Towers Online 0.01.30a

I was not aware of Virtual Towers an ambitious Alton Towers theme park project until a friend mentioned it to me. As an avid Planet Coaster Player I began to look into it. These are my thoughts so far. This is a pre-alpha release and an ongoing project so it’s nowhere near finished yet.

Virtual Towers - Loading Screen

The loading screen? what I can say Its Jurassic World Evolution beautiful and straight away the music is very haunting. But considering where the demo is set Its no surprise the x sector has a bit of a Infamous past thanks to one ride which can be seen in the loading screens.

I probably don’t need to tell you which one or what happened it was worldwide news for sometime and an horrific accident.

So that sad part over I am going to continue with my review.

Ride design quality and related graphics.

Absolutely stunning is the best word I can use for this the level of effort gone into this to make the rides as realistic as possible.

It is a massive credit to the small team who are creating them. My friend has already said it’s like being there. And you would think less effort would be put into ancillary details for the rides like queue detailing or ride scenery well….

Nope it’s just as impressive and detailed.

Below are some in game screenshots of level of detail.

And remember! you belong to the smiler

Park Graphics

Just like all of the rides, park graphics look Incredibly lifelike and early developer footage on their Facebook page Indicates they have already got a mock up of the smiler gift shop Interior with hooks and shelf’s. 

And this is not the only content in the work’s that look amazing and further browsing on the Facebook shows models of the towers wicker man in development.

And you would think aspects like dustbins may get less attention or none at all but nope they even get fantastic detailing

Bugs (Remember this is still early Development)

Like all early progress title’s there is bug’s that need splatting and squatting and Virtual Towers Online Is no different a couple of the current bugs are starting upside down, grey screen.

I must admit I found the upside down bug seemed to occur whenever I had fraps active. But when off it was fine but the game does warn Fraps does not work too well.

Other bug’s that I spotted were at the disabled entrance to the Oblivion and the corner of the gift shop/ride photo shop in 2018 this is the exit to the ride. Other than that I found It was pretty good.

The Future?

Virtual Towers - The future

Well the team behind Virtual Towers Online has openly stated they are currently working on redoing the X sector from this demo. and they are creating a new launcher, and adding automatic updating meaning more streamlined content updates and reduced large downloads.

The future Is very bright for Virtual Towers and the next few months are going to be very exciting.
