Danimation posts screenshots of Roller Coaster Tycoon add-on
Posted Wednesday, August 16, 2000 9:25 AM | Contributed by Craig the Coaster Freak
Danimation released several screenshots from the upcoming Roller Coaster Tycoon expansion pack Loopy Landscapes. Although the pictures are low in quality, the new coaster types can be recognized. What we definitely can see is an S&S Thrust Air, new Arrow and Morgan styled trains, a water coaster, a Vekoma Invertigo, and also a new mad mouse coaster. There is some speculation whether these pics are real or forged though in the Danimtion forums.
After looking over these pictures. I would have to say, minus the water coaster, that they are not real screenshots from Loopy Landscapes. Think about it, TA2K can easily be made by using a trainer to change the mode to Powered Launch mode, and changing the trains. Vekoma Invertigos can also be made with a trainer by changing the mode to Reverse-Incline mode. Same thing for the Arrow-batic, just use the trainer to make a steel wild mouse, and change cars to inverted. Morgan and Arrow trains?!?!? Those are just trains from a regular steel looper that were put on steel twister or corkscrew track using a trainer. Does anyone agree with me???

Doh after replying twice I now see a post Dan made:
STOP HERE AND LISTEN These shots are very real. The submiter had to "Extract" them from a B&W news magazine where they were very small and low detail. However the source is reliable, and trustworthy. If these screens were not real, they would not be up. IF you insist they are fake, then you are just going to look stupid, when we get better quality ones that look just like these. Danimation does not post fakes.
YAH! THE ADD ON IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME AND I ABSOLUTELY CANT WAIT! ITS EVERYTHING WEVE WANTED! Large inverted loops, 4 across seating on inverteds, vertigo style trains, hyper trains for arrow track, and TA2k!!!!!
WOW!! I cant wait until it comes out. I liek the 4 across seating for the inverted and the BIG LOOPS!!! Trust Air looks awesome and the "magnum" seating loosk awesome for the steel coaster. Now people can make a REAL Magnum XL 200, Desperado, Steel Force, Mamba, and so on, yeah baby!!!!!
Well I hope everyone got to see them. I just went to Danimation to check them out and they were taken down. I guess they will be down untill they can be authenticated. :( Real or not I wanted to see them.

They are VERY real shots, stolen by someone from a First Drop *PRIVATE* site for proofreaders to review the magazine... The shots were supposed to be exclusive for First Drop. The reason the bad quality? The proofreader's site is in PDF format for quick loading.
The owner, Justin G., is NOT happy with the happenings, and because Danimation did not want to get into trouble, they removed them.
This info came from First Drop owner himself, Justin G.
They were taken off because whoever got them got them without permission or something. They are real. There should be more screen and better screen shots in a couple of weeks. You wont see any for a while....
