Installation

  1. Make sure that your OpenRCT2 version is up-to-date. You need at least version 0.3.4 or a recent development version.
  2. Go to the releases page and download the openrct2-price-manager-?.?.?.js file from the latest release, where ?.?.? is the version number. Save it in the plugin subfolder of your OpenRCT2 user directory.\ On Windows, this is usually at C:Users\{User}\Documents\OpenRCT2\plugin.
  3. Start OpenRCT2 and open a scenario.

Usage

The plug-in will start working without further ado. To open the settings window, click on "Price Manager" in the map menu in the upper toolbar of OpenRCT2. There you can fine-tune the behavior of the Price Manager or disable it altogether.

Multiplayer

The Price Manager works in multiplayer games if and only if the server has the plug-in installed. There is no need for the connecting clients to have the plug-in installed.\ Each user will be able to open the settings window, but you can restrict the right to change settings to admins.

Settings

  • Enable automatic daily updates: Automatically updates the prices every in-game day.
  • Enable ride price management: In scenarios where the guests are charged for each ride, the plug-in manages the prices for all rides and enables the following settings:
    • Make transport rides free: Charges nothing for any transport ride. This includes the Miniature Railway, the (Suspended) Monorail and the (Chair)Lift.
    • Enable 'Good Value' pricing: Charges only a quarter of the ride value, which makes the guests think that the ride has 'Good Value'.
    • Enable lazy tax: Reduces the ride prices by the given amount, to balance the vast advantage that the plug-in provides.
    • Limit prices: Limits the ride prices to the given amount. Default is 20.00€/$, which is what can be achieved through OpenRCT2's user interface.
  • Enable shop price management: The plug-in manages the prices for all shops and all on-ride photos, and enables the following setting:
    • Overcharge for umbrellas: Sets the price for umbrellas to 20.00€/$, which guests are always willing to pay when it rains.
  • Enable toilet price management: The plug-in sets the price for all toilets to the given amount.
