    Welcome back, I was sick of dealing with that "Mike is dead" joke xD
    I'm simply stunned, and I can't wait for the next roundup series with the update!

    New progress - sizeable forest bushes and new grasses to fill your scenes with. The grand total so far is this:

    New Trees:
    Aspen
    Purple Leaf Beech
    English Elm

    New 2D Trees:
    White Birch
    Classic Fir

    New Shrubs:
    Forest Bush

    New Grasses:
    Country Grass

    New Treelines:
    Aspen Tree Line
    Elm Tree Line


    These new HD Treeline objects will give you plenty of coverage for background forests without having to use copious amounts of 3d or 2d trees. The 2d trees are also getting an HD upgrade with proper shading to blend seamlessly with their 3d counterparts. You will be able to fill your scenes with high definition, low resource objects and make greenfield a thing of the past! The first picture on this post is a scene that blends 2d trees, treelines and 3d foliage into one neatly designed package. FPS is sitting comfortably at 120.

    More to come.

    Mike's dry cleaner and tree pressing service. When you literally want wrinkle free 2D trees.

    Can't say what hasn't been said already, but are these screenshots in a custom environment as well?
    • CommentAuthornSeven
    • CommentTimeDec 26th 2016
     
    Custom ENV, yes - but not by leaps and bounds that you had to with the first iteration of NL2. Honestly, the ambient color is bumped up to be more blue to show off the AO better...um...the fog is turned a pale cyan green.

    The default out of the box dynamic env is pretty fantastic these days.

    This looks amazing! Although out of curiosity, How do the 2D background trees look from higher up? For example when riding a coaster. I assume you'd obviously see the edge of it. But issue or not, this is an insanely useful feature!
  7.  
    ^if you made a nice little ridge around your park and then put the edge trees on top it would probably look really nice

    Will the light pattern creator ever get updated to make custom 3d tracks in the future?

    Like this? <a href="http://imgur.com/9omfdnB"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/9omfdnB.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" width=1000/></a>

    Or will there be a easier way to make any custom 3ds track you want?

    I wish it would. I could make custom Togo track or Meisho flat rail track with the duel support beams under the track.

    I am surprised that TheCodeMaster has not made such a tool yet for NL2.

    Probably not, the main purpose of the light pattern creator is to create lighting patterns for your ride, as the name suggests, not making 3D track.

    How do I get rid of shake effect when on ride??? The faster the ride goes he bigger the shake

    ^If you hit F7 while in play mode, it should be an option called "ride view shake effect" or something similar.

    So I made an NL2 discord server a while back, used it to do the stream for RU150, and since it's been moderately active, I figured I'd put an invite here.

    They don't announce when it comes out. It'll come out when it comes out. Just build some more jet coasters.

    ^ Looks amazing! I'm curious though Projektion: are the shown projects becoming NL2 default/inbuilt parks? Or were they just used to look great in the trailer?

    Some were spruced up for the video and others chosen because they look great in the new lighting engine. A few of the default parks have been upgraded.

    After riding some coasters from the library i have to say the new update looks super awesome and i love the new sounds.
    Then i tried one of my current projects and get nearly an heart attack, most of the lights are now messed up.


    https://youtu.be/xY3G9mkx2J8

    I was planning to release my project by the end of the week, but now i have to do so much more =(

    How is performance on the new update? Better or worse?
    • CommentAuthorTheBeatles
    • CommentTimeJan 9th 2017 edited
     
    Performance is better for sure, but Wörni is right, it you have projects that currently have lights in them, go check on them. The changes are pretty drastic, as I can see within Terror Tracks. Both color and brightness seem to be affected from what I can tell.

    Once I figure out the lights, Terror Tracks will be released, promise!

    Oh and also, that pic is epic, iSatnav.

    The lighting is going to be different especially for everyone that applied a high contrast custom environment. People using the default environment won't see quite so drastic of a change. This could not be helped, we apologize.

    Coasterguy and Worni, you are showing the same issue, something we did not see in testing. PC specs please, including graphics card and drivers (which should be up to date of course).
