Planet Coaster World's Fair Pack DLC Releases October 16th, 2018. New Cultural Themes Plus More

Planet Coaster World's Fair Pack DLC Releases October 16th, 2018. New Cultural Themes Plus More

Planet Coaster will be getting a brand-new DLC come October 16th, 2018. The World’s Fair Pack includes 10 new brands and a host of unique, cultural building types. The DLC is released the same day the free update 1.8 goes live, which also adds a bunch of neat new things for all owners of Planet Coaster.

Inspired by real-world theme parks and celebrating global cultures, the World’s Fair Pack will introduce you to 10 fabulous new brands from around the world; each of these brands brings with it some giant and regular food signs, vending machines, and traditional wall-sets including shop panels, doors, and roof pieces from that part of the world. Each new brand comes with a dedicated new shop for your guests to grab food from. There’s also a host of new cultural props, fences, path extras, and character hats.

As you can see in the images the devs have released, there’s some really nice set of new cultural designs.

On top of that, the DLC will also come with two new rollercoasters and one ride. The World’s Fair Pack will retail at USD$10.99.

Frontier Developments has also announced that they will be releasing update 1.8 on the very same day the DLC is released.

Update 1.8 adds some really cool new things, tweaks and improvements such as the ability to set laps for your rollercoaster rides. So now, you’ll be able to design rollercoaster rides that a shorter but lap twice… for instance. The whole list of 1.8 features below as highlighted by the devs:

RESTAURANTS
The PlanCo chefs have been working hard to prepare the most mouth-watering menus for the brand new restaurants you can now place in your parks! Have your guests get together for a yummy daytime or evening meal to enjoy in one of the fine establishments you choose to build.

Restaurants are built very similarly to hotels by creating a restaurant facility that guests enter, and increasing its capacity with additional expansions. You can of course dress it up to your liking or use one of the provided in-game blueprints.

Once your guests have finished their meals, they will leave with a boost to their happiness, food, and drink rating - which will vary on what your restaurant offers and what your guests have bought.

You can customise what your restaurants offer by choosing from the different in-game brands and creating a menu; the more items being served, the higher your running costs. You can increase the effectiveness of your restaurants by using perks to attract different guest demographics and increase their star rating.

You can also play around with restaurant capacity (very similar to how hotels work). Each box represents a group of 4 at a table, so if you place 20 boxes inside your restaurant, you have space for 80 guests to dine. Guests who have a meal at a restaurant will feel spoiled and luxurious, so do try them out for yourself!

NEW SCENERY
We're adding some extra vending machines, building on the ones that were released in previous update 1.7! You can now also expect to find Chief Beef, Hotdog Squad, Pizza Pen, Cosmic Cow ice cream, Mexcelente, Tiki Chiki, Monsieur Frites and Missy Good donuts. It's looking like a yummy update already...

OBJECT BROWSER IMPROVEMENTS
We've added more tags to better categorise and identify objects in the building menus for Planet Coaster. You can add your own tags to scenery and blueprints, or based on projects you're working on, so that you can more efficiently find your more commonly used pieces. We've also created a Favourites category, which is an easier way to find the items you use all the time! You can now use the search bar to search for these tags, which should hopefully help with the endless scrolling for that one wall piece or, my favourite, the Dragon Poo. 

TRIGGER EVENTS FOR DOORS
All door animatronics have been changed in the game so that they have extra trigger options, and you can now open and close them as you please. This much-requested change allows you to perfectly time coaster doors with their coasters or tracked rides, right up until the last 100th of a second. 

NEW FIREWORKS
A host of new firework shapes including letters and Planet Coaster iconography are ready to shoot into the skies, and will give your park that extra spark of excitement.

CUSTOMISE OPERATION STAFF
Another much-requested feature, you can now customise the staff colours of the ticket booth staff and the ride operators! Time to make those green and purple aliens!

COASTER IMPROVEMENTS
Lapping has been added to 38 coasters, which allows you to lap the train through the station multiple times! We've also improved the Operations Tab with a dropdown menu showing only the possible operations mode for a specific coaster: Standard, Lapping, and Block section.

EVEN MORE NEW ADDITIONS!
You thought that was it? Think again! We've also removed the blue glow around selected scenery items, making it easier to change their colours; we've added new audio effects to the camera effects introduced in update 1.7, and triggerable speakers now have the option to change their pitch by trigger, meaning you can bend or snap to that pitch by up to an octave.

This might be the perfect time to jump back into Planet Coaster. You can get get it from the link below.
