I’m going to get straight to the point.
I’m disappointed with the new bowling/monorail update… Let me start with bowling; first of all the lanes are really glitchy and some have no pins at the end of the lane until the first ball of the game reaches them, then they suddenly appear. Because of this glitch the pin sounds are non-existant… Also, the player seating is glitchy and players are just sitting on top of each other or floating above the table
Secondly, the bowling room is SO QUIET. There is literally no atmosphere! PLEASE devs add some backing music of some kind; honestly just a tranquil melody of some sort will do the job, especially one similar to the PlayStation Home bowling alley (it was so simple and worked so well). This also goes for the casino, theatre, tower lobby and arcade when it’s released!
Oh and the first time I opened one of the bowling shops (the other one wouldn’t open) I lost my cursor and was basically forced to quit the game because I couldn’t do anything… all these things combined makes the whole update seem so rushed and it’s a shame.
Monorail is a fun addition and I like it. There’s a few things I have to say though…
I was on 30 ping and when exiting the monorail I lagged back inside it and couldn’t leave until I went all the way back to the tower
Also, when I was inside it with a few others, their avatars were glitching out so bad it kinda ruined the experience. Apart from these (and the coming soon signs still being there) I like the monorail.
To summarize, bowling gameplay is amazing, you guys done an awesome job on that, but everything audio related regarding bowling needs a lot of work and so do the bugs/glitches.
Monorail is a nice addition to the plaza and really makes it look active, but those few glitches need sorting. Hopefully for future updates the games/additions the team develop aren’t unfinished. Also, music is a feature that needs to be added to the plaza areas to give the plaza a great atmosphere.
Apologies for my rant
