  I'm working on a CC zoo, and for the life of me, I cannot get my green sea turtle combined sea/land exhibit to work. Is there anyone I can mail it to to help me out?

[I have a few downloaded animals in it, I'm not sure if this effects players who don't have the installed animals...]

Hey, my name is Sarah. I just joined this community because I searched for communities which listed "animals" as an interest because I'm trying to start an animal shelter and I need lots of help. Anyway, this game sounds awesome!

Does anyone know if there is a free downloadable trial version or anything of that sort?

If not, does anyone know about how much the game costs most places? I'm a poor college student so it's gotta be pretty cheap for me to buy it! But I really want it! I love animals, and this sounds like the ultimate game for me.

Just some general questions 
08:51pm 20/06/2004
  I would like some advice on how to raise the Zoo Rating.

I am working on a scenario that requires a ZR of 93, yet no matter what I can't raise it above 89 or 90. I don't have a problem keeping a high guest happiness, so I'm not sure where the problem lies.

Also, how to you arrange your exhibits/attractions? Do you follow the edge of the zoo or spread out into the middle? Do you make a circle so guests don't have to double-back, or no? I'm curious which techniques are most successful.

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knew how to make a leopard (black or sptted) exhibit that keeps them happy but is bigger than 10 squares * 10 squares. Prefferably I'd like to make it 50 * 30. Any help would be appreciated. Oh & I have the expanded marine dino and reg. zoo tycoon.

  K, this seems slightly messed up to me.

When I play the senerios and complete them... they dont get marked off... they just stay as they were before I played them. I thought maybe I had to start at the very beggining and go from there so I did... I got to the dinosar tutorial (one with allosaurus you set lose)and the instructions were fine until the thing came up saying "oopps there you go listening to us again , maybe he isnt so tame!" and asking me to hire the DRT. I clicked ok to go do that... and... the side thing was blocked off to only the top 2 things. In the middle it said hire a scientist to care for the egg... but the staff one was blocked out.... I hit main menu thing and left. Is my game screwed up or somthing???

Hi I am new here!
I love Zoo tycoon! I bought the complete collection at christmas and have spent many hours playing it! Sadly my brother is not very nice and I think he hid/threw out/broke the installation cd. Now I run it off of the marine cd cuz it was already installed. Im moving out soon though and will have to get my own computer, so.. that will probally be the end of my playing. :(

Hello again! I know I use this community alot, but I really need help with these things! I was wondering if anyone had any tips on breeding. I'm in the Endangered Animals scenario and I need to breed my okapis to win. I've already used the tips on Wisco's Zoo Tycoon website and they didn't work. Any tips on breeding okapis? Thanks in advance!

I'm currently playing the Saving the Great Cats scenario, and I've been doing pretty well. Well, up until the time I added leopards. I just can't get them to be happy. Both the regular leopards and the black leopards (in seperate exhibits) are extremely unhappy, even though they're not hungary, they're not sick, and the exhibit rating is up in the high 80s and 90s. They're also both kept away from the main paths so they aren't feeling crowded. I give them the proper toys and shelters. They're still angry! The highest happiness I had from a regular leopard was 12, and 18 from a black leopard. Why?! Anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance!

Sea Otter SHow? 
11:21pm 08/05/2004
mood: confused
Hey, I have Zoo tycoon expanded with regular,marine and dinosaurs and I was just wondering if anyone here knew how to make a good sea otter exhibit with a show tank attached?!
I've made an exhibit that the were happy with and stuff, that had a regular tank attached, and then a show tank attached to that, but, by the time all the otters get there " the show had ended". And if I do manage to get them in the show tank by picking them up or whatever, they won't do the tricks...

Any relevant advice would be appreciated!

Shark World.. 
05:53pm 06/05/2004
mood: frustrated
I'm on the Shark World scenario on the Complete Collection. I've encountered two problems. The first is that I've been running low on money. Is there a good way to make some quick cash in that scenario? Also, my shortfin mako sharks are angry. I did forget to put a tank cleaner on their tank, but it cleaned it up. They're still mad though. Does anyone else have mad makos? I'm also wondering if there's a website with scenario strategies. The official site has some strategies, but some scenarios (like Shark World) aren't included. Thanks in advance for your help!

Introduction and Expansion Packs.. 
04:25pm 29/04/2004
mood: curious
Hi! This is my first post in here! I've played the original Zoo Tycoon on and off for awhile now. After seeing this community I was inspired to get one of the expansion packs. Is there a specific one that you guys would recommend? Would it just be easier to spring for the complete collection? I'm interested in what you have to say!

Every time a play a freeform zoo with aquatic shows, my attendance goes way down and my zoo starts to lose money. I put my shows on infrequent but it doesn't seem to help. Are the shows just worthless, or what?

Frustrating scenario. 
05:58pm 10/04/2004
  I'm trying to complete that advanced rainforest (Puenta Arenas I think) one where you have to have an exhibit rating of 90 for all exhibits. So far I'm doing great but I'm having serious problems when I try and add any more animals! The enclosure I'm trying to have happy animals in is huge and I customise it to suit the animal's needs (I always check to see if I can add more things or change some more terrain after the keeper says that everything's OK). So far I've tried Blackbuck (who I can get up to 89 but no further), Elephants and Hippos. Is there a guide anywhere that shows you how to make ultimate exhibits? I don't quite understand how it all works.

  Is anyone else evil like I am with this game. Sometimes aftet I beat a sceniro I will start putting animals together (tiger vs. flamingo) to see who wins. One time I even adopted one of every animal to see who would win, it got down to 20 animals and I quit.

  Zoo Tycoon 2 has been announced at the official site. A while back apparently; I haven't checked the site for a while.

I'm happy to see they added a moat feature; when ZT.com was taking suggestion mails last year I put that on mine. Can't wait!

Dodo Cheat 
07:35pm 17/03/2004
  Hey guys!! I got a number of cheats that I have seen on many sites, but none of them work! I really want to get the Dodo, so you name an exhibit doflopnok right? Well that doesn't work for me.

And then when you name zoo Green Brine, dancing cumumbers in hula skirts apprently come...but that didn't happen to me!

  This made me laugh, so I had to tell everyone =D

My neighbours are trying to sell their house, so they planted loads of flowers in the garden. One of my rabbits escaped and went into their garden and ate them all about four hours after they'd been planted. The woman got home and wondered where they'd all gone. I nearly died laughing when she told me about it... she was like "Maybe a fox got into the garden and ate them?" and I'm like "Since when were foxes vegetarians?" I decided not to mention what had happened to them...

Now, about Zoo Tycoon...

I just can't work out how to make the reindeer happy. First they wanted more of the same breed, then less, then more space, more rocks... and it went on and on and on until I gave up and sold them. HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM HAPPY?! =(

  Yesterday I bought the complete version of Zoo Tycoon! I played it for six hours straight. It is SO fantastic! And I love the jellyfish! =) It's my favourite animal... ha ha.

For anyone who doesn't have the full version... get it! It's worth it.
