Parchment Background Image for How To's: Park Shuttle Configurations, Page 2 on FlightToAtlantis.net

In a new sandbox, when placing the first section of a track the default direction of travel is from west to east. Note the directional arrow drawn on the track piece while it is in blue ghost mode.

It’s possible to begin your track in another direction but you’ll first need to rotate the track piece before you start building.




Here two examples of Safari Train set up as a shuttle:




Example A:




In relation to the park entrance, this train is travelling in the default direction, from west to east.

Example B:




In relation to the park entrance, this train is travelling from east to west.

When building shuttle configurations you may start the track where you like and place the stations, entrance booths, and exit booths in any order convenient. With our fix, described a little further on in this article, you can get the game engine to organize the location of the trains and the order of the stations for you.

Example A and the illustration below show that with tracks placed in the default direction (from west to east) Station 1 is always nearest the park entrance side/south side of your park.

Example B and the illustration below show that with tracks placed in reverse to the default direction (from east to west) Station 1 is always nearest the east side of your park.

Setting The Correct Station Sequence - The Fix




After you have completed your track, if it turns out it was convenient for you to start building with the first station you placed clear across the park from where it should be, or if you just want to be sure you won’t have any problems with your track, you need to get the game engine to organize your stations into the correct sequence. How do we do this?





Close your track.


Reduce the number of trains on your track to one train.


Put the track into construction mode.


Close construction mode without making any changes.


Put the track into test mode.




After you've done this the game engine will place your single train and your Station 1 where they should be. Occasionally after doing this your first train will place with individual cars bunched up having no spaces in between them. Increasing the number of trains to two will correct this glitch, after which you may increase the number of trains you want to the total number that suits you. If after placing a second train to correct the glitch it turns out you only wanted a single train on your shuttle track you can simply reduce the number of trains on your track to one. The glitch will remain fixed.




After the game engine has sorted your track your trains will properly arranged, and your stations will be organized from Station 1 into the order that the train will arrive at them. Your shuttle is now ready to open to park guests.




Our fix will get gamers around any difficulties with guests inexplicably not embarking or disembarking certain stations on the shuttle route.
