  1. Gatekeeper Coasterdynamix? Thats awesome. Mustn't forget to pick up one of those.
  2. Today Toverland opened it's outdoor expansion. With the 'Magic Valley', Toverland is has increased it's footprint with more than half. The new area currently has 7 attractions: Mack spinning coaster (Dwervelwind) Mini drop tower Water carousel Large bouncing thing Junior obstacle course Climbing castle (relocated from indoor area) Fountain show Because of the low temperature, a large portion of the area (including the river rapid - Djengu River) is not yet finished. Predictions are that it'll open before the summer. Here are the pictures. Keep in mind that was cloudy and the foliage hasn't grown yet, so it might not yet look like much. Full size images: http://imgur.com/a/VjkGp Entrance to the Magic Valley Looking over the main promenade. In the back are Dwervelwind and the new food court. The junior obstacle course. The fountains. Unfortunately so pictures of the actual show. Overview of the promenade with the fountain of the left. Food court and seating area. Fireplace inside the food court. New merchandise/souvenir shop. One of the waterfalls in the area. Behind the waterfall is the river rapid and on the left in the new entrance to the Boosterbike. The junior drop tower. Should provide a nice view of the area. One 'very relaxed' bird on top of the drop tower. The water carousel, with creatures designed specifically for Toverland. One of the inhabitants of the valley, called a 'Dwervel'. Roughly translated : 'Twhirler'. A lot of work left to be done on the rapid. Front facade of the rapid station. When finished, the facade will become one large waterfall.
  3. I have no pity for Webber. If you go by the lap times, Vettel was clearly faster. Although it was extremely stupid of Vettel to try to overtake on the inside of turn 1 (and a bit of pitlane), he would have Webber sooner or later. My opinion, Red Bull should let their drivers race and Vettel should not go kamikaze like that. As for the Mercedesses, we can't be sure if they really needed to fuel-save, but they were quite evenly matched and I don't think Rosberg could've pulled off a pass on Hamilton. Alonso thought his wing was not as badly damaged and he hoped he could make it to the first pitstop. Team should've known better, it's mistakes like this that cost you the championship.
  4. Tomorrow is going to be interesting. If it rain, it'll be a spectacle and even if it doesn't, no team has really gotten to terms with the tires yet. I don't think anybody will manage only 2 stops. Nice starting grid too, can't wait to see how Vettel's gonna keep those Ferraris behind him during the first lap.
  5. I'm not surprised Shambhala is ranked so high. I liked it a lot, and while it certainly isn't the B&M around, I like it better than any Intamin I've ridden.
  6. Well, I guess you had to be lucky to ride it on a good day. When I rode it, it was the smoothest coaster I've ever ridden, with some decent forces in the drop, loop, immelman and helix. Which is almost opposite of some other stories I heard so I guess there's a lot of variation in the ride experience. Nevertheless, I think 'new' coasters are always placed higher than they should be. I guess it'll drop a bit in the coming years.
  7. What resolution is your recording? You could try to reduce all the graphics settings to 800x600 and such to minimize the amount of data needed.
  8. Not sure if it applies to steel coasters, but Troy (at Toverland) is becoming more powerful each season.
  9. Well, it has be readable by the language the poll algorithm is written in. Also, it should be a format everybody can open and edit, such as the txt and excel format. Besides, there already is a simple drag&drop helper available.
  10. ^Ferrari for Constructor's? If you said Driver's I would've believed you. I predict RedBull, Lotus and McLaren can gather more points than Ferrari, since they heavily depend on Alonso for big points. As for Driver's, Alonso should be able to get it, but there are many others who can as well.
  11. It's not for a spinning, but it's for loading/unloading. This new system has the hinge of the seats in the middle of the car. This will reduce the amount of power needed to change the position of the seats. The seats can also be built with less material since it's attached to the rest of the car in the middle.

  13. Think that's because they were over appreciated in the opening years. Now the hype is gone and I'll move down on the chart.

  15. Great to see you again, Bas, after randomly seeing you aboard almighty Khan this summer ! It was a nice surprise and I'm glad we get to ride some more coastes together ! Haha, awesome. Good to see you again!
  16. Wow, those are some crazy shots. The color balance is almost perfect, even in the dark shots. May I ask what kind of equipment you are using?
  17. Put in my deposit for Texas-Ohio and picked up the latest RAW Dvd (since it was on sale). Looks like it's going to be an awesome summer!
  18. While I love Coasters in the RAW, I would really love to see another Coaster Expedition. The RAW series has covered so many world-class coasters by now, it might be getting hard to fill up a disc with some quality coasters. Also, like some have already said that both are awesome in their own way, a new 'Expedition' feature would be 'fresh' after several RAW issues.
  19. The easiest way to do this is using relative roll. Make the barrel roll consist of three nodes, start (end of half loop), halfway point, and end (start of 2nd half loop). The first node will be banked +180 degrees. Then, for the middle and end point, checked the 'rel roll' property and set both bankings to +180 degrees. You can also check the 'con roll' property for smoother banking transitions.
  20. Maximum height is 150 m (about 450 ft) Maximum speed is 200 kph (120 mph) but this can be increased to (almost) infinity by using an additional program.
