Welcome back, commander! In Project Perfect Game we have been covering mostly real-time strategy games and first-person shooters. However, there are other types of games to modify or create. So, it is time to bring something different to the table, such as simulation games. And for those who enjoy simulation games, certainly, some of you dreamed of creating your own theme park, right? So, let's start with Open RCT2 here. Open RCT2 is an open-source re-implementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, a construction and management simulation video game that simulates amusement park management. To play it, you must have the original files of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.

So, this week, the crew from Open RCT2 released Open RCT2 v0.4.2. The changes from Open RCT2 v0.4.2 were announced with the following words:
