Hello Everyone ! I noticed the community is kinda small, but anyway I almost finished the game, and so, I though it was time to give my oppinion to help the developpers and hesitating possible players etc...
An excellant game. It has many positive points for sure and an incredibly huge potential, but if someone asked me, I would probably say it's still an Alpha version. The graphics are okay, no need for something fancy, the buildings are quite realistic and the gameplay enjoyable. Most of the grunt work has been done.
What NEEDS to be added/updated (In My Oppinion)
=> Weird maps. Some of them are ok, but others a cruelly unrealistic. Most valleys have a north face pretty steep and a south face smoother. I didn't really saw it here, maybe new maps/updated maps can be made inspired by real stations.
=> Buildings. Actually, there is a cruel lack of buildings. Mostly, accomodation. We build a ski resort or a skiing area ? We need hotels, shops, leisure buildings (bowling, skating rinks). It will help generate profit and so, make the game more realistic : people should buy a pass at a visitor center and not pay at each lift hill wich is really weird and my god my resorts look like the most expensive in the whole world ! Even if it seems to copy Ski Resort Tycoons or Ski Park Managers. But I really think there is something to do here that cruelly lacks.
=>Fun items. And I don't mean weird stuff, but maybe Half Pipes /Slaloms, Jumps and organisation of world competitions. Great Scenario idea and quite fun no ? Like you need to build them, a certain amount of hotels, a skating rink etc...
=> Lifts choice. Even if the actual choices are way better than any other game I've played - I still lacks a little customisation. 2-4-6-8 Seaters for chairlifts, 4-6-8-12 Cabins for gondolas etc...and maybe the color too ? =3
=> Bug correction. I know it's still the firsts version so I won't be picky. There are not a lot, the most annoying is the hospital wich is, useless.
=> Run construction. Why can't runs cross !? And the way to build them is complicated, it's impossible to make turns for exemple, it always has to be straight and the form of the mountain. Ski Park Managers's system is the best IMO you guys should take a look at it.
=> Landscaping. Goes with the runs, no landscaping is really annoying.
=> Decorative objects : simple, they do not exist. Maps ? Lights ? Fountains ? Benches ? Trash cans ? Atms ?
=> Disasters : Avalanches maybe humm ?
Now the "little things"
=> Big station = huge lag, 5 seconds to put a cot. And I play World of Warcraft full graphics with no lags on my computer.
Huge potential, really good Alpha version very promising updates can be made. If all of the things I've said before could be made in full final version, this game would totaly beat all the others and can triple it's current price. These are my suggestions, maybe some other players have nice ideas too ? Don't hesitate to critic, it helps making something good even better =3. I must say to finish that the developpers already made an astonishing job, this will be the best, I'm sure ! !

Thank you for responding :p Fine for the buildings and objetcs =2 I just don't know how big is the project, how many people work on it etc... it was just an idea for realism even though I still think special runs with jumps etc could be very nice addition.
For the hospital it seems that the helicopter...how can I Say...don't take off ? Just turns quickly on itself but never get up the roof. Theres 10 000 I won't see again :o !
Good luck, may the snow be with you.

I've been going through the game a bit lately-currently only the demo, and have been interested in perhaps creating some content for it. So far editing existing buildings/lifts in parameters and visuals is working well enough, however trying to add new ones gives a range check error on start up... looking at if i can overcome that...

Hi, I've got another idea but I don't know whether it's workable.
