Park Ranger AZ is a world construction game focused on environmental consciousness and preserving our natural habitat. Players are dropped off in a remote desert location in Arizona with the primary objective being the creation, protection and maintenance of a new National Park.
When they begin the adventure, new park rangers are given a few essential items to get started: Waterpump, sawrig & lumber converter bases, a power solar unit, a store module and a money converter. After entering build mode and starting the park foundation, the players can then use these items to plant and harvest trees (each harvested tree produces two nuts/pinecones for replanting), build furniture, grow crops, set up campsites, sell preserves to the campers and much, much more.
Along the way they will face hostile space aliens whose goal is to strip the forest of trees and steal lumber. They must also deal with random events such as wildfires, campers leaving bags of garbage everywhere and outsiders dumping toxic waste. How you design & maintain the park is up to you, so have fun, ranger!
A very desolate and foreboding start...
...quickly improves as grass is added
Spawn a bag of pinecones and plant them on grass or soil
Watch as trees grow in stages until they reach full size
Harvest a tree and gather a log
Drop it on the sawrig for cutting
Collect the planks
Drop them into the lumber converter and then choose the wooden item you would like to create
Place a Power Solar Unit, switch to Build Mode and then place some Powerlines near it
Unconnected Powerlines will have no power and will be colored white
Rotate the Powerlines until they connect - red means they are running current
Place an item that requires power next to the last powerline and it will now have power!
1) Open the Items Menu and select a plant
2) Plants grow in stages until full size
3) Harvesting plants produces filled buckets
4) Drop buckets into the stove to make preserves
Note: Harvested plants can be eaten raw; however they give a player very little energy. Preserves will fully satisfy hunger.
Players can earn money by opening a store (or stores) and selling preserves to campers. In the example pictures to the right (09/15/15 - to be added), the ranger has sold preserves and is dropping a bundle of cash into the money converter.
If the ranger has paid enough money then a luxury item menu will appear and he/she can choose their item. The ranger in this case has selected an HDTV. Once powered up via a power solar unit, three channels will be available on the TV, each featuring different slideshows.
