    I have the Steam version of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum for the Mac and can't figure out where to put custom scenarios. When looking in the package contents of the app there's folders for everything but scenarios and creating one didn't help. No matter where I put them nothing shows up when trying to load scenarios within the game.

    Any ideas?

    By scenarios, you mean new levels & goals etc, right? Just checking as some people have asked this elsewhere, but they really wanted new scenery, which goes in: (Show package contents) Contents > GameData > Style > Themed.

    As for scenarios, in your Macs User folder, go to Documents > Aspyr > Rollercoaster Tycoon Platinum > Start New Scenarios

    If there are just 4 folders (AppData, Fireworks, Peeps and Structures) Create a new one called 'Start New Scenarios' and save your scenario files with .dat file extensions in there.

    For anyone interested in downloading Rollercoaster tycoon 3 Platinum, we currently have it on sale (until tomorrow!) for £9.95 on MacGames.co.uk

    I've been playing it for YEARS on a windows partition- I tried to get it to work on a mac, but it was before the intel change so it didn't work... Saw it in an email today and bought it! So happy to run this game on a mac once and for all!
