I had not heard of this Alton Towers theme park project until a friend mentioned It to me as I am an avid Planet Coaster Player so I started to look Into It and these are my thoughts of it so far Its an ongoing project so its not anywhere near finished yet.
Loading screen what I can say Its Jurassic World evolution beautiful and the 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 and the demo Itself I probably don’t need to tell you which one or what happened It was worldwide news for sometime and a horrific accident.
So that sad part over I am going to continue with my review.
Ride design quality and related graphics.
This Is just absolutely beautiful the level of effort gone Into this to make the rides as realistic as possible and It’s a massive credit to the small team who are working on this the rides according to my friend are so close to the real ones.
Add to this the detail in little aspects like signs to tell you about things you can and can’t do Is superb and the recreated signs and notices add even more realism to what is already Impressive‚ even the stations for the rides have their own signage like on oblivion which has a few warning signs above the car queues.
Below are some In game screenshots of level of detail.
Just like the ride quality the park graphics are just superb the buildings all look Incredibly lifelike and early developer footage on their Facebook page Indicates they have already got a mock up of the similar gift shop Interior with hooks and shelf’s.
And this Is not the only bits In the works that look amazing a look at the Facebook page shows models of the towers wicker man.
And they are not stopping at that the detail In the likes of the tables and chairs that dotted around the x sector look fantastic and the skydome textures look so lifelike and you would think aspects like dustbins May get less attention 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‚ gray screen.
I must admit I found the upside down bug seemed to occur whenever I had groups 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 to 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.
Well the team behind Virtual Towers Online have openly stated they are currently working on redoing the X sector from this demo and creating a new launcher for the title and adding an automatic updater 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.
