Big Bear

Post by scoobywoof83 » Sun Aug 22, 2010 11:39 pm

What happens when I'm stuck at home sick for 5 days with nothing to do? I make a lot of No Limits coasters lol. Heres one I spent all day on. I was inspired by Paul's coaster The Great Wolf. This was my first time really working with terraforming. The only thing wrong with this coaster is once I had the terraforming and the track layout done, I couldnt put trees on the right side of one portion of the track because it was at the border. So other than that I'm happy with the way this one turned out. It is a wooden terrain coaster. Many hills, -gs, twists and turns. It's definately the most work I have ever put into one of my coasters. top speed of 60 mph. Lift of 136 ft, first drop of 93 ft. Enjoy!

If you could help me ride the coaster I'd appreciate it. It appears to be down. :)

When I start the simulator, there is no train on the track so it's like I'm just standing in the station. How do I switch back to normal view?

I feel dumb lol. I put it in shuttle mode to take screenshots, and forgot to put it back. You have to change it back to complete. It wont run a complete circuit in shuttle mode lol.

Big Bear has a very Beast-like feel only without all the trims and lots of airtime. My recommendation for construction is submitted now!!!

Probably the difference is that we're looking at if from a "would we want to ride this" perspective and not just trying to nit-pick. Keep 'em comin'...but without trims! :)

I have to say, I'm not necessarily Pro-trims. A lot of times when I add them to a coaster its mainly for a block segment. As far as real life rides... I think in some cases they are needed. For instance, the arrow multiloopers. They can be rough as it is, so without the trims they would probably be TOO brutal. However on coasters like I305... they shouldn't be there. I would love to try that ride without them. To me its like this. If I grayed out on a coaster, I would still ride it again lol. Its not gonna hurt you. If you gray out and dont like it... dont ride it. Don't trim the ride and ruin it for us idiots who want an extreme ride lol.

In that case the ride is poorly-designed. It shouldn't need them except in emergencies.
