Roller coasters in The Sims?

Friday, March 1, 2002 7:20 PM
Is it possible to mak a roller coaster tycoon and put it in The Sims? I would think so since RCT has those 4 different views. I have space in my back yark screaming for a coaster!

By chance, do you own a Macintosh computer? ;)

All right. Is what I get out of this question is "Can I import RCT coasters to something like BluePrint and put them in my Sims' back yard?"

The answer is a plain and simple no. It would be a massive ammount of work for anyone to even begin writing a program that could let you do that, and the end result wouldn't be that great.

Zero-G, don't be disin' Macs, they are great macines, but only for desktop publishing, graphics, and buisness. They suck for gaming.

I didn't mean it like that. Many Mac users don't know much about computers and how they work. I guess that's what I was getting at. BTW TrBiggar, I refuse to put anything into my portfolio unless it was created on a Mac.

I have an iMac and I wouldn't trade it for the world...but yes they suck when it comes to gaming. I am just glad that there are Mac versions of The Sims and the expansion packs! Anyway, I really wish they could make a Sims where you are able to let your characters go on vacations, etc or maybe to a theme park. Oh how I would love that...

I don't have a Mac but i do have a Dell. I can't stand Mac's OS. I think you can take four different snapshot views of the coasters, cut, paste, edit, the use the Trasmogrifyer to add it to The Sims. Sounds like it coasld work to me.

In "The Sims: Vacation", they don't visit a theme park, unfortunately... although they can play carnie games & win prizes!

Where they do go, is an island with four different themes: Snow, beach, wilderness campgrounds, and fishing holes... but unfortunately... no fun park.

Zero - G and others,

I would not normally respond to such remarks but why dis others computer choices?

Every person chooses a computer based on their needs and budget, and their preferances.

I started as a mainframe programmer years ago and soon switced to PC programming. After a few years I got bored with that and made another switch to Web Developement. This is when I was introduced to the Macintosh computer. As a dedicated PC person I was hestitent about ever using one of these things.

I know own 2 Mac's (g3 iMac and a G4 powerbook) along with 2 intel boxes. I rarely use the pentium machines because the macs can do it all. I can use Pc applications, mac applications, and with the new addition of the OSX being based on a unix platform, Unix applications too.

I have had this G4 powerbook (OSX) powered up since December and it has not crashed once. When switching networks all I have to do is choose a location from my menu bar, the OS automatically searches out the best connection to it, IP's and such. The G4 550 chip runs at the speed of an Athlon 1.1. This thing can handle high intensity video editing out of the box.

And for gamers, that fault is becoming no more. Most game companies are now releasing Mac versions of there games along with PC. I have tony hawk Pro skater 2 on this thing and it runs more stable then on my PC.

And yes, the user interface is different on a mac. Many people do not like it because they are so used to windows.

I am not trying to prove the mac is all superior. Like I said before, I use both. But In my experiance, the mac has shown way superior functionability.

Look at the new dual processor G4 800 (this thing runs at nearly a 4 gigahertz intel spped) www.apple.com

MY GOD! IT WAS A JOKE! Does anyone here on CoasterBuzz get my joke? Anyone at all? Macintosh users are notorious for being simpletons when it comes to computers. Thats why Macs were the first ones with a Desktop and Icons, because the Dos prompt was too "difficult" for some people. So what did they do? They bought a Mac. It's why so many schools use I-Macs, they are completely self contained and easy to use... why they don't have a floppy disc drive, why they have one freaking button on the mouse, why it takes all of 2 minutes to set-up your new I-Mac. ARRrg. Ok, ending rant now.
