    I've started building a new coaster. Its a intamin invert like tornado at sarkanneimi. If you have any tips on shaping it would be appreciated.

    We need to see some pictures first.
  1.  
    Use barrel rolls and vertical loops. Also look at all of the inyamin inverts as reference, especially the one in mexico. I will make you a custom track if you want because it pains me to see people using default intamin track.

    ^ You mean the one in Spain, don't you? (Tornado at Parque de Atracciones de Madrid). Also, that Intamin track offer could be used by other people? I have a Blitz that could benefit from it...

    Digging it so far. Make the roll in and out of the cobra a bit snappier tho. It will look weird right now but once the new track is on it will be fine. Look up the pics of tornados cobra and make it like that. Also it looks a little odd on the half loop portion. Might need some smoothing.

    I have tried to make the cobra roll more realistic as well as making a curve and barrel roll to the ride.

    My thinking is that the Intamin barrel rolls are generally in a straight line, not changing in elevation bar the heartline. Is this even heartlined, come to think of it?

    ^^ I would advise you to insert your images using HTML, Imgur automatic generate a HTML link which you can copy here direly.

    don't know what i like better

    the roll with a change in elevation

    or the roll without a change

    tell me what you guys think
  2.  
    I prefer the former, more interesting to me. There is no wrong answer though.

    I prefer the downward roll.

    finished the basic layout, any tips or critique on shaping would be appreciated

    Could stand to have it be more compact I think. Maybe add a little something extra that crosses over to the right and and then back before that first barrel roll. Also your FOV slider needs to be closer to the right its hard to judge shaping. The cobra roll does look much better

    It feels a bit short to me, you could probably fit a corkscrew or another loop in there somewhere.

    Looks nice and the heartline rolls both look great, but, as has been said, it needs to be longer. I'm thinking a helix after the second heartline roll, or change the brake run position and add a corkscrew or something.

    The g's on that loop must be huge. It's tiny compared to the drop.

    not sure if this layouts long enough yet, added a extra helix before the first barrel roll. Again, any advice/tips on shaping would be appreciated
  4.  
    You should make the helix go the opposite direction around the loop! That would make it look more integrated.

    I think i'm happy with the length of the layout, it lasts 48 seconds from the top of the lift to the end brake run. The other two intamin inverts, Tornado and Sarkanneimi and at Parque de Atracciones Madrid last 42 and 48 seconds

    This coaster is weird in the fact that it reaches its top speed after the first drop, The top speed of 80 km/h is reached before the cobra roll

    ^ A lot of coasters do that. Banshee does it - it reaches the max speed 68mph pulling out of the dive loop.
