It's not a biggie... I was mainly just having fun trying out the clearance frame script!

Does anybody want to start this up again? It sounds like a lot of fun!

Sure, why not? The only thing is we'll have to keep all the parks separate, otherwise four rollercoasters in and none of our computers will be having a good time handling the graphics.

Alrighty, we'll start with the wooden shuttle idea.

The rules are that you cannot change what was already built, you must build within the support borders, you can't go underground, and that you have fun! Please change the name of your parks before uploading, so we won't be confused with the files. The winner will be chosen in a week. Good luck!

That's quite a small plot of land, but should allow for some high-g hi-jinks! Now all I have to do is remember how to use the program... :lol:

I can't wait to see what'll come out of it! Also, the supports can go outside of the red lines, due to them being generated by the simulator.

Done. I couldn't stop the station from banking for some reason, and the supports generator put supports through the tunnel, but other than that it should be safe. :lol: With a bit more space in front of the station I'd have made a more graceful curve into the helix, but for now it'll have to do. I hope you like it! :smile:

That was very neat! I like the tunnel right out of the station, that hill is awesome!

I also made one, but I think I like yours more.

Thanks, that's very kind! I like your coaster very much - it's all about fast direction changes and intense positive vertical gs. Very smooth, too. :)

Funny how you mentioned the tunnel on mine, which was an afterthought.

I suppose that means it's my turn to set the next scenario!

Riverview Park in Chicago has aged very gracefully indeed. Some of the rides have been updated but the old classic feel remains. For 81 years straight the Bobs has reigned supreme as king of the coasters. However, the new owners feel it's time to up the ante. With GCI rocking the world with their millennium flyer trains it was only natural that they should be hired to design and build Riverview's next coaster.

There are no space limits in this scenario, however Riverview wants the new coaster to complement the Bobs as well as give it a run for its money. Therefore the ride may not be over 100 feet tall, it must run at least three 11 or 12 car millennium flyer trains simultaneously due to Riverview's crowds, and it must be hardcore. Track length should be at least 3000 feet. Trains must not be trimmed on mid course brakes.

So do we need to add it to an already made park?

Originally I just wanted to give people the chance to design a hardcore GCI to really show off what the millennium flyers are capable of, but then I thought it would be more interesting if I set the challenge in Riverview Park where they had a legendary coaster under 100 feet tall to beat. So nope, I didn't want to limit people in that way by giving them a fixed park to work in, but feel free to build a park around it if you like, or even put the Riverview Bobs next to it. :smile: It's up to you what you do, as long as it meets the specs I set out. I forgot to say that excavating the ground is fine. The plan in the back of the Gee and Lopez book for the Bobs shows that a few holes were dug to drop track into.

Alrighty, here is my coaster. Reaching 99 feet towards the sky, and nearly 3,400 feet in length, is the Son of Bobs. This coaster was inspired by American Thunder, Gold Striker, and the Bobs. It is one of the best coasters I've ever made, and the second design for this scenario. I decided not to create a park because the three trains was already creating a bit of lag. I hope that you enjoy the ride!
