Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon
Sinon c'est un jeu sympas, enfin un autre jeu dans ce genre, parce qu'entre le ski resort tycoon, le ski park manager et manager 2003, et le ski park tycoon, et des modes gems sur cities xl, peu ont réalisé ce genre de jeux et c'est bien dommage. Bonne continuation
Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon
I have 7-year old who on occasion gets to try some Cities:SL, SimCity and Banished. He loves alpine skiing (and snow groomers of course) and is always talking about next season. Suddenly he asked me if there was a game where you could build ski lifts, pistes and create the actual slopes (mountains). Well, I found Winter resort simulator and this game (didn't even know the genre existed). WRS was too much (even for me) but this game fits him like a glove. Since I found it a couple of weeks ago (I think his head would explode ;) it's all he wants to play and he's started nagging about playing on the computer every day now.
1. You could add in a function that automatically names runs and lifts from a preset database. The game currently allows the player to change names of runs and lifts, TRUE. HOWEVER, as the player builds their resort bigger and bigger, it can be somewhat cumbersome to name every single run and lift manually, but at the same time, nobody really wants to see all their lifts and runs named numerically. To make this function work, I imagine you guys would need a database or list of potential names for the game to choose from when the player creates a lift or run. Ski runs (in real life) have different naming conventions based on their difficulty, and lifts (also in real life) have different naming conventions based on the lift type (double chair, quad chair, express quad or high-speed quad, and gondola for instance, where I am from in Canada). I think it would be really cool if the game reflected this. To create the database of lift and run names, you guys could even reach out to your audience on Twitter or a Google Poll so we can all help compile the list! You could create different databases for different languages too (English run-names are obviously different from French or German ones), either for different language markets for the game or for different map regions within the game, or both. This function would obviously have to evolve as new types of lifts are added (if that's happening). I could make and email an example of some lift-and-run-naming conventions to explain what I mean a little bit better, it that would help :)
2. From a gameplay graphics perspective, I get that a lot of the current game assets (lifts, etc) are placeholders, but if I had to recommend one easy-ish thing, it would be adding in more trees on the current or future maps. At least where I ski in Canada, our ski resorts tend to be built partially above and below the tree-line. The trails that cut through the forest for runs are very visible characteristics. I think that the game might feel more realistic with denser tree coverage, especially in valleys. I could be wrong, but I don't think this would require making new models and could be performed relatively easily within the existing game.
About your second proposition, we're French and use to ski in the Alps, which means we don't have that much trees in our resorts. Also, more trees means more resources from the graphical card to run the game. So, yes, we still have some improvements to make :) Et il faut clairement qu'on découvre ce que c'est de skier au Quebec pour élargir nos références en terme de station de ski !
Yes it will, though slowly, I have a fairly basic one (I have a HP laptop with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz; Intel(R) HD Graphics 620) and it runs absolutely fine. Though if you put to much into your resort the fame rate does reduce, but it is always playable.
6) Designated intersections. Could help with the stuck skier issue mentioned in my first point. Similar to "SLOW" signs at real resorts, making an area where skiers take caution and allowing for multiple trails to merge, and/or a lift to be placed (possibly without the penalty of boring advanced skiers). Essentially creating a small base, but without a lodge. Could also clean up messy pylons where trails overlap slightly but not enough to merge.
During the ActuGaming French Direct, Goblinz Studio announced Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon developed by TeaForTwo, slated for release during Fall in 2020. In Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon you will be tasked with building and managing a large ski resort on a snowy mountain where the focus does not lie on profitability but on the satisfaction of your skiers, who just so happen to look so tiny they're downright adorable.
Pick a mountain that's to your liking, each with varying conditions. Start with building a ski lift, chair lift, or gondola to move your skiers to where they need to be. Place ski slopes befitting the right kind of skier, ranging from a large blue for families, long green for beginners, a small red with a slalom for the teenagers of the sports club, to dangerous black for experienced hotheads. Keep a mechanic's shop and hire labor to handle maintenance, and use the snowplow to keep the quality of the slopes up. You'll be challenged to keep a good variety as there are twelve different skier profiles that all want a different level of difficulty for their skiing experience. Ultimately, it's up to you to meet their needs and rise up to the challenge of transforming your ski resort into the best there ever was.
What do you think of Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon? Do you visit Ski resorts? If so, do you have a vision for what one looks like, or do you think that this is a case of tycoons going too far? Let us know in the comments below!

Read the terrain, and choose the best spot to lay down trails for every skier ability. 11 different types of ski lift give you plenty of choice for scaling the heights. 12-person gondola lifts are fast, but tricky to build on the steep mountain slopes. A two-person chairlift might be a better choice, but watch out for queues at the bottom!Luckily, ever-advancing ski lift technology means there are always new options to try. The latest models can make even the highest peaks accessible in no time. Plan, build and improve until you've created your dream ski area. You might have thought perfect pistes were enough to keep skiers happy, but it's not so simple. With 12 different skier profiles in the game, some are more interested in a good raclette, while others come to commune with nature. And then there are the hardcore ski fanatics, who won't settle for anything less than the longest run the mountain has to offer.
Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon is exactly that, a tycoon game about taking money from young families that are about to lose daddy as he smacks a tree at 50 mph and snaps several vertebrae. Ok, being serious for a minute, Snowtopia is a new early access tycoon game about running a ski resort, and it was released on Tuesday. As typical for tycoon games, you are tasked with completing incremental challenges to improve the business while also keeping customers happy. Though unlike Mars Horizon, which focused on budgets, resources, and education, Snowtopia does something more like Cities: Skylines. Your focus is to maneuver and balance the traffic jams, or in this case, blocks of humanity cueing for their daily dose of hari-kari.
