This game is widely accepted by skiing fans and ski resort enthusiasts. Natural choice for game content for this game would of course be a real world ski park. I searched internet for resources, but did not find enough sufficient data to start with.
So I turn to you - players and skiers - for help finding resources for adding real ski resort to the game. If you want to have your favorite ski resort in Ski Park Tycoon and have some detailed information about it please send it to me.

What do I need?

  • Ski resort map - detailed top down map (orthographic) with all lifts and slopes. For some reason all ski resort maps are just some artistic drawings with distorted perspective with no information value.
  • Height data of the region - geodata describing ski resort. The smaller resolution the better. All geodata sources I have found do not have small enough resolution to be of any help for me. Any kind of format would suffice. Just send what you have and I try to crunch that data. I could do it even without height data if I have elevations in the park map but then it would be just approximation.
  • Ski resort history - it would be a nice scenario for the game to build the park exactly as it was built in reality.

You can post links, send me messages or write me at info@skiparktycoon.com

It has hights and lots of info about the lifts in this map

Here is some info about when the lifts were build: Lift-world.info

Stats for tracks should be added allso if possible lke the lifts have at least. I think that with the slope ussage stat it could be easier to handle lift ques and redirect skiers a slope acident stat could help to place rescue stattions better. Cable cars should can go over blocked terren like it can go over road.

Hi,

I would like the ski region of Zell am See - Kaprun in the game. Where can I find some geodata of this area?

Verry nice to have Cerna Hora in the game. I've been there about 10 times ore something ;)

Maybe it's to complicated, but it will be nice to scale the game a little better. The buildings, lifts, trees, roads and people are much bigger than the mountains. It would be nice if this can be fixed. That way the slopes doesn't look that short any more.

I think this will be to complicated and maybe the game will be to heavy if done. Are there any plans for this?

Hello,
generally I think regions from past Olympic Games would be amazing. (e.g. Lillehammer, Vancouver, Chamonix...) That would be easy to find some test to put in game for history or resort. ;)
Best regards

Not sure if this is possible but could you make one for the Three Valley's in France, as it is debate idly the best ski area in the world and most certainly in the top 5.It would be greatly appreciated thanks :)
