openrct2-benchwarmer

An OpenRCT2 plugin that adds alternating benches and bins to your park's footpaths with a single click.

Benchwarmer

A plugin for OpenRCT2 that quickly builds benches and litter bins on each alternating footpath tile. This is generally the best way to ensure your park value stays high, and is a very tedious part of playing RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.

Installation

Download the latest release from GitHub. Then, place the .js file in your OpenRCT2 plugin folder.

  • On macOS, this is ~/Library/Application Support/OpenRCT2/plugin.
  • On Windows, this is %USERPROFILE%DocumentsOpenRCT2plugin.
  • On Linux, this is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/OpenRCT2/plugin. ($XDG_CONFIG_HOME is typically set to ~/.config)

Usage

This plugin adds a new dialog window to the "Map" menu, where all other plugins are located, allowing you to choose which two pieces of bench/bin scenery you wish to add to the map.

After selecting the two pieces of scenery, click the "Add" button to automatically add each bin and bench to your footpaths. Benches are added to footpaths with an even index, and bins are added to footpaths with an odd index. Sloped footpaths and ride queues are ignored.

Development

If you wish to contribute to this project, make sure it builds locally before pushing your changes.

To do this, install dependencies with Yarn:

yarn

Make sure you have $OPENRCT2_BIN set to your OpenRCT2 CLI, and $OPENRCT2_DIR set to the directory in which OpenRCT2 keeps all its user content.

Then, build the project to the local build/ folder. There should be no errors.

yarn build

Also, make sure to run ESLint before pushing your changes:

yarn test
