    ^ I hope your foot gets better soon.. Nasty injury that one. :P

    Posted By: sprogfelt like you were almost running through the mouse traps to steal the cheese before they went off.

    That's the idea i had in mind when i made the trap with the cheese in it. And that's why i placed a cheese trap on that fast curve after the overbank.
    Now the hyper mouse is out of the way, i have to figure out what i'm going to work on next, lol.

    ^^ Sorry Diamond, i'm not jumping on the RMC bandwagon just yet. But if i ever do, i'll be in touch. So thanks for the offer anyway.

    ^ Togo, i don't need to make a small park high on a mountain, cause you've already done it, hahaha. And you'd probably make a better small park high on a mountain than i ever could.

    No, i'm not planning on starting a new project yet, cause i still have a few others backed up that i need to get out of the way first.

    Ladies and gentlemen.. Well, Gentlemen really. There used to be a lady here, but i think you all scared her off, hahaha.
    Anyways, i'd like to announce that i'm currently working on the next installment in my 'You can't do that' collection.

    Allow me to introduce, Dive-ja Vu. A dive coaster boomerang.

    For anyone who saw my post about the batwing i made, now you can see why i made it so big. ;)
    Colours are obviously Deja Vu inspired. Just re-assigned.

    ^ Robotnik, i was about to say that myself, hahaha.

    Inkyz: The g's are actually quite good. There was some really strong lateral g's (orange/red) in 2 of the seats going over the top of the non inverting loop, but i tweaked it and got them down to yellow. Around 1.3, which is a lot better than they were.

    This is a sweet ride. I like it. It looks well executed as well.

    Thank god for the copy/paste tool. Would've hated to build and flange a 2nd tower spike from scratch.. Also have to figure out the best way to support the non-inverting loop. I have an idea, but i'll see how it pans out once i start.




    *Winter break = Womp getting distracted by something else.

    My Megaman XL invert...










    Is coming!

    X

    Been adding some finishing touches to it, hiding my golden chicken for people to find, and trying to sort out some on-ride music that's misbehaving. If i can't get the audio to work properly, i'll just have to upload it without. Which will be a shame, as it's music from the game and i would like to include it.

    Thanks. I was a bit 50/50 on that look myself. And yeah, it's for my dive boomerang. I haven't really come up with a theme for the ride yet.. Not even sure if there will be one.
    But after posting that pic, i went back and changed a few things. And ended up with this.

    pic2

    Bit of an inverted roof.. Just trying to come up with something different to a regular pitched roof design.
    Very mildly inspired by the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good, And Who Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too.

    It fell off somewhere.

    I like the boomerang dive coaster idea! One thought I have is that you could have the trains run backwards, so that riders are looking at the ground as they ascend the second tower. Then they're not looking at the station and it would be more like a standard dive coaster.

    WHO WANTS FREE MONEY?!*

    Now i've hopefully gotten your attention, i've just uploaded my latest creation. My awesomely awesome dive coaster boomerang! Did i mention it's awesome? No? Well it is. Maybe..
    Go check it out right now. Actually no, do that after you finish reading this. I still have more to say, lol.

    A few weeks back i had another idea for a 'You Can't Do That' ride and i've started early work on it, but about 2 nights ago i discovered it's actually been done already. And now i'm feeling all deflated and miserable about it.
    So, i want to ask you all.. Should i continue working on a flying wildmouse, or scrap it and do something else?



    * No free money, just.. No

    Dropbox link please :P

    Or just get the steam version :D

    "Should i continue working on a flying wildmouse", Why not?

    I've searched everywhere and can't find Cecil. Also I vote yes to finishing the flying wild mouse.

    ^ Ah Paradox, you obviously haven't searched everywhere. There's lots of places to hide a chicken in this one, keep looking my friend. :)

    Small hint: The ring/boundary of N7 fir trees immediately around the ride, it's not anywhere past those. Cecil is inside that area. I'll always hide the chicken somewhere in the vicinity of a ride, and i'll never place it way out at the edge of the map or anything silly like that.

    And it looks like the flyer mouse gets the thumbs up.
    @Mr. E: I had a look at the ride at CW, and they even previously used the colour scheme i've settled on.. I could NOT believe it! I've never seen that specific ride before last night, lol. Although my trains are green with red-ish restraints.

    ^ Yay Inkyz! :D
    I was starting to worry for a second there when two people said they couldn't find it. Thinking maybe there had been a glitch or error when i packaged it and Cecil got left out somehow. Cause i knew for certain i placed Cecil in the park, lol.
    Well it's official. RCF is just terrible at finding chickens, hahaha. Unless you've found it since then?

    @ Zergei: Yeah, i'm gonna use some reference images of that model of ride to get a rough idea of how the supports are styled etc, but i'll do up my own original layout. And i'm also using the B&M style flyer, not the Vekoma.

    Progress on my flying wildmouse. Thoughts?
    I'm honestly not sure how this will turn out because 1. I don't know how to set up blocks for an e-stop on a wildmouse, and 2. I've only ever made one wildmouse, and the e-stop on it prob didn't work.
  8.  
    ^ Looks cool! The trains remind me of Skydive, being so short :P
  9.  
    Oh my goodness, its like a B&M Volare.

    you should use two tube gerstlauer track once its done, would look more wild mousey.

    I started working on something.

    RB rocket

    I know, i know, i shouldn't start working on something new when i'm already working on other things.. It's like ordering a large pizza when you're halfway through a 3 course meal. You'll end up making yourself sick.
    But.. There it is, the beginnings of my Red Bull Rocket. It's an old project i've mentioned a number of pages back, and it sat here doing nothing for a while. Until i recently decided i should do something with it. And i want to try and do this ride with no custom scenery. The key word there, is 'try'. I spend more time working on custom scenery & station buildings these days than actually making rides, lol.
    • CommentAuthorWomp83

    I don't normally do many custom environments for my rides, but i started playing around with one while working on my flyermouse.

    flyer1
    flyer2

    I think it looks alright for a kinda-first time effort. But what does everyone else think? Yay or nay? (i know it's not much)
    Not sure if i'll settle on that environment for the actual ride or just set it back to the default one..


    Also, Baadrix, i've only just noticed you posted 2 shots of Dive-Ja Vu in the SSS thread. I know it was back at the start of October, haha, but thanks. :)

    Flyermouse layout is complete and it happily runs 5 trains (much to my surprise, i was expecting problems somewhere) Starting work on supports now. I'm gonna use modified 4D prefabs, as the square style they have looks more like wildmouse supports. Plus they have good clearance with the B&M flyer cars. I wasn't overly fussed on the colours i'd chosen for it, so i tested another colour combo. I'm happy with the car colours, those are staying.

    Which looks better, those or the yellow & black colours seen in previous shots?

    Definitely the blue

    What do we think of this one, or do you like the last one (blue, black & white) better?
