  1. Your coasters are so awesome! Looking forward to more!

     

    Thanks for your comment!

     

    thanks so much for sharing how to create the pretzel loop. Here's how my flyer turned out so far.

    I want to just get theming done. But that's for another day lol

     

    it is all thanks to you!

     

    Your ride looks great! glad I could help.

     

    Here is a new one for you guys that I hope you enjoy!

  2. Great layout and visually it is so realistic. I hope they can fix the issue with smoothing out the track a bit because while the coaster looks just about perfect, but the POV reveals issues. I mean it's still way better than having only preset track pieces to work with or something, but I hope they can smooth it out.

     

    Excellent invert though!

     

    Thanks for your kind comments! the track editor is improving with each patch they have released now, still work to do on it but its getting there.

     

    Awesome design! Could you give me insight on how in the world you got the Immelmann/dive loop to work on yours? Mine have been twisted into something horribly distorted or upside down in places it shouldn't be.

     

    Thank you! I've been asked about doing some sort of tutorial a few times now. I would like to however if the guys at frontier unlock the restrictions in the next few days on the coaster editor (which I think they will) a tutorial becomes a bit redundant.

  3. Spent a while on the new Alpha, still issues but also loads of cool stuff too.

     

    Not to sure what Frontier have done with the coasters in this update though. The rolls on the track seem really bad, the preset elements are terrible and they have locked banking at 90 degrees per piece? The coaster editor seems to have got worse. Anyway 3/4 hours work I was able to do this.

     

     

    Here is a video if anyone wants to check it out

  4. So me and my brother are headed out to New York next week on a business trip, Monday to be exact. Anyway having not been to New York since I was 11 I booked my self a few extra days to enjoy it. Only being 60 miles away I'd be a fool to miss out on SFGADV and all its creds. So I have a few questions:

     

    Bus, Train? How do I get to it, it seems there is some sort of bus running from New York however the earliest bus doesn't arrive till 11.30 and as I'm expecting it will be packed I want to try get there for opening. Is a train an option? I've tried to research a little with out much luck.

     

    This leads nicely onto my next question, crowds. I'm thinking Sunday will most likely be the best day, not that it will make much difference. I'm almost certain ill be investing in flash pass although as to which level I'm unsure. I think platinum will be my safest bet.

     

    Is it a good idea to hit certain rides at certain times. I imagine Kingda Ka and Eltoro are best to get out of the way first but then if I have a flash pass I guess it wont make too much difference.

     

    Lastly are there any other creds I should look out for around the New York area?

  5. I haven't got the time to respond to you all individually but thank you all very much for your advice it is very much appreciated, I have taken it all on board and hopefully it will lead to a smother trip and ill keep you all updated on how it goes. Once again thanks a lot!

  6. Hey everyone

     

    So me and my family are setting off to California for the first time next week, we will be there from the 23rd October to the 3rd November and I just had a few questions that if you guys could help me with, would be really great.

     

    So first off the dates, we chose the dates based on our trip to Florida a couple of years ago, we found that the the October half term (in England) was an extremely quite time and the whole time we were there we pretty much experienced no queuing. I was just wondering if it was likely to be the case in LA too?

     

    Secondly we want to do the main 5 theme parks (being DL, CA, NF, US and SFMM) I hadn't realized till recently that Six Flags will only be open on the weekends so my question is what day would be best for it and would flash pass be the best option? For the rest of the parks we were just going to do them midweek from Monday to Thursday again is this the best way to go?

     

    Now for cars, our original plan had been to just get taxis everywhere as me and my dad don't really want to drive, my dad hates driving on holiday, I'm not sure how comfortable I would be driving on a foreign road as I have only driven for a year. However if a car really is the best option I would much rather rent one.

     

    Lastly, I really don't know too much about the place. Were staying in the Universal Hilton but other then the theme parks if any of you guys know of places that shouldn't be missed or any hidden gems it would be great to hear them.

     

    Any of your advice is much appreciated!

  7. Now I've had the chance to look at it a bit more, I feel like some of the transitions in the ride were a bit quick, for example, the way the seats rotate during the first half zero-g roll thing (I'm not quite sure the name of that element), it feels like they rotated a bit too quick. Also on the bit where the track connects to the final brake run, it seems like it just "snaps on" instead of smoothly flowing into it (don't know how well I explained that).

     

    Thanks a lot for all the feedback I really do appreciate it. I can see what you mean about the seats rotating quite quickly in that area I also thought that at the time, when I ran it through in slow mode the lateral G's seemed to be alright though I think it maxed out at about 0.8G on that part. I also understand your issue with the final element, funnily enough I had the same kind of issue, I worked for a while to make it seem a little less rigid. Once again the lateral G's all pretty much checked out but ill defiantly have a look at improving that area a bit more.

     

    Once again thanks for your criticism, its really useful to know where people think I'm going wrong.

  8. Not bad. I'm happy to see someone actually making a 4D coaster in NL2 for a change, it seems like the least popular of the new coaster styles. One thing that irks me though is the way the seats are inclined forwards during the lift.

     

    Now you have mentioned it is really bugging me haha, I completely overlook how awkward it would be to stuck like that whilst going up the lift hill.
