January 2024 - Invent-Your-Own-Ride Contest 2!

Hey everyone!

OpenRCT2 allows you to modify your ride in many ways! You can merge in elements from other ride types, you can make trains longer or shorter than usual, you can mix in other vehicles in your trains, you can make your trains slower or faster, You can change your trains into powered trains, you can reverse them, you can use shoestringing techniques on your ride.. The options are endless! In this contest, I want you to create a ride where you do one or more of these things to your ride to make it different!



You are allowed to make teams of up to 4 people in this round! It doesn't matter if you teamed up with the same person in the previous round!

  • Rule 1: You have to make a ride and modify it using OpenRCT2 cheats or plugins. You can find a lot of examples of things you can do in the intro text!
  • Rule 2: You must describe in your story which ride you want the voters to rate!
  • Rule 3: The deadline for this contest will be on the 27th of January at 19:00 CET!
  • Rule 4: For this contest, you are only allowed to use objects from the RCT1 and RCT2 base game and their official expansions, OpenRCT2-official objects, and custom objects that are included in the DKSO v1 bench. Custom objects that are not in the DKSO v1 bench are not allowed, so make sure you don't use those. You are also allowed to use a custom palette if you want.
  • Rule 5: The maximum map size for this round is 3000 tiles. This number will be calculated by multiplying the size of the map edges. You could for example make a map that is 60 x 50 tiles, or 30 x 100 tiles. 
  • Rule 6: There is no limit to the amount of opened rides you can have in the park. Other rides don't have to be modified using cheats.
  • Rule 7: Have fun!

How to join

  • Step 1: Join my Discord server. Discord is completely free! https://dkmp.wtf/discord
  • Step 2: Build your map and decorate it!
  • Step 3: When you are done with your contest entry, go on Discord, and send the save file to me in a Private Message. For the name of the save file, I want you to simply use the name that you use on Discord. For example, if your discord name is Dork, for the save file name, use Dork.park. After you have sent the save file to me, I will look if it follows the rules, and I will check for anything you can still improve. You can resubmit your entry until the deadline of the round, even if I have already accepted it. Please deselect all unused custom objects before sending in the save file!
  • Step 4: Submit a story for others to read in the voting poll! You can do this by writing your story in a Private Message to Deurklink on Discord!

After the deadline has passed, I will put up a voting poll with all the entries. In this voting poll, everyone who is a member on my Discord, including you, will be able to rate all the other entries, and leave a short review.

When the voting period is over I will announce the results in a Youtube video!

Good luck, and have fun!
