    Hello all!

    Today I'm working on a B&M Wing coaster in a dense forest. Obviously, the place will be filled with trees, but for right now the trees will stay away from the track. Feedback appreciated!

    (BTW CEDAR POINT REC IS ON HOLD, MOST LIKELY COMING BACK LATE MARCH/APRIL)


    All of Wing Coaster


    Side view of lift


    Oversized cork


    0g roll

    Supports are temporary, I will be doing custom supports.

    See ya next update!

    Hey all, little bit of a quick update!

    I don't have any screenshots because imgur is acting weird right now, but the coaster is doing great so far. I have added a second highspeed airtime hill over the first one, a spiral, leading into an inline twist. I'll post screenshots when imgur is doing okay.

    See ya next update!

    Hey guys!

    Imgur is working now, so pictures of the layout! I have finished the ride, btw. I hope you guys like it! I wanted it to have a short layout, but something that packs a punch.


    Double highspeed hill


    Weird diagonal loop thingy


    Inline Twist


    Turnaround to brakes


    Last pop of airtime


    Sort-of artsy shot

    Is the heartline on?

    ^Yeah, it is. Because it's a wing coaster, the heartline seems that it's off.

    Just on the Zero-G, might be the angle but looks like it's center of rail. I know Wing is lower, but that looks nonexistent.

    ^Just the angle lol. I assure you, there is heartline on the coaster.

    I have started on supports for this wing coaster! All supports so far pass clearance. Pics:

    PS. This is the most advanced supportwork I've ever done for a rollercoaster. xD


    Supports so far


    Much advanced Very support

    The supports look great, however I feel they're too thin.

    For the lift hill supports I'd suggest using 30 inch pipes on the standard prefab support that features the twisted horizontal rail connector. Atomize said support, then you'll have to increase the size of the pipe that goes between the two nodes on the connector by .131m on both sides (just use the extend beam option or whatever it's called) Then edit the pipes size and the rail connector to fit .81m (I don't have my computer in front of me but that measurement seems to stick out) in diameter so a 30 inch beam wont look awkward connecting with it. After that, change the placement of the footer to be exactly beneath the beam node on the connector and extend the angled support further out (as the prefabs are extremely narrow). That should give you a pretty solid looking support for a wing rider.
    Be sure to reference a support of similar height on a wing coaster for flange placement but a little common sense can go a long way for flanging (just look at the size of the support, divide it into as many sections as it would take to fit them all onto a flatbed and boom, decent flanges). Supporting can be tough if you aren't familiar with a given companies style, but eventually it'll be alot easier; after countless hours have been spent looking at photos of similar rides that is, to get that perfect look.
