Hi there, apologies for the massively delayed response! It's been a while since we've had enough for a major update as almost the entire team have been burdened with a heavy workload. Working full time on top of this means that sometimes we'll slow down with producing work. However, there's plenty to show off now!
Regarding your query of a 'canon' season for the Resort to be based on, we plan to continuously update the game as the park evolves. So by the time we're creating Mutiny Bay and Katanga Canyon, SW8 will likely already have been built and opened. As for the retro version, whilst we won't include these rides in the entire park, there will be plenty of easter eggs to learn about the history of the Resort, the ruins, and the rides themselves!
Now for the updates! Unfortunately due to increasing responsibilities in personal life, Ben has departed from our team for now, but his position remains open, in the hope that he can eventually rejoin us. As a thank you for his work this plaque will sit in Hex's armory!
Meanwhile, work is progressing on building the 3D models for Oblivion, including the queue line buildings, the track itself, and most recently, the old planetarium projector that sits in one of the buildings!
All the while, the team's continued to visit the park, including what unfortunately was the most incomplete team meet yet, but in September several of us returned together for a few days. Two videos have been produced since then, one is the meet vlog, the other is the 'sequel' to last years cinematic 'Alton Towers Resort 2015' video!Alton Towers Resort 2016Virtual Towers Online 2016 meet
As always many thanks to everyone for your continued support and I look forward to bringing the next major update!
