I think this is being discussed in the roller-coaster tycoon board. To answer your question, no there will not be another expansion pack as the last one maxed the game engine out to its max, and the only way to put in another expansion would be to recompile the code (meaning the old versions would be useless.) As for RCT2 the answer is yes, but I think Chris is waiting for the technology to catch up so he can put in better graphics, better lighting, more options, more coaster design stuff, better physics models and so on. Putting all that stuff in now would gobble up processor power. I mean if he was to do all that now and release it today, for it to run properly you'd need a pentium 900 or something, and not everyone has those. Remember when RCT was released we had just gotten up to 500-600mhz Athlons and a 200 megahertz pentium made the game run slow. So I think it will be a year or two at least.

Nope, b/c Chris said he had exhausted all the thing-a-ma-jiggers in it, however, he said once technology gets good enough he'll make an RCT2.
