    Hi all

    so this was a concept that started out as a launched eurofighter 320+, but isatnav decided we should make it into a compact launched infinity coaster. i have recently finished all trackwork and am currently supporting the ride.

    the coaster:





    Have a test POV too

    This is still a wip, but most trackwork is final

    Well. That was a productive afternoon...





    I am aware that the seats are dodgy and it lacks restraints but this is progress.

    I have intentions to release this as a beta with very basic models in a few weeks with a larger, full release in month or so with varying front bits, animated wheels (maybe) and far more details on the ride vehicle.

    It looks ok. I feel like you could go further instead of creating a glory-fied 320+ layout.
    The trains look good, but still needs work (but its a WIP so whatever)

    keep up the good work.

    Gerstlauer Infinity CTR beta is here! Check the first post for a download.

    Have a video in wonderful 60fps!

    Don't change the trains and re-upload them as yours, they are in the ownership of myself and COASTERGUY246

    I like it, but the fact that the train isn't centred with the track is really bugging me.

    Maybe that's just my OCD calling or whether its other people too

    Looks cool though.

    ^ Agreed, nudge the bodywork to the right ever so slightly!

    Other than that they look great, why is your recording so jumpy though? Have you got the framerate set to 15 or something?
  2.  
    enable 60fps on the youtube settings, then the jumpiness should go away

    Thank You for the awesome Train. My Infinity Megacoaster is in Work. All files Working without Bugs.
    I still wishing mir a Zierer Elevated Seating Coaster Train :)
  3.  
    Update Time!



    i am doing a rework on the cars after deciding they were too long and stretched out. i cleaned up the model and removed the seats (they will be redone too). i have smaller knowledge of sketchup, so this may take a while. if anyone has any rough estimates on measurements the cars, please share!

    we are going to be planning four release cars. two row trains (karacho), and more than two car trains (karnan). a launch and non launch variant will be available for each.

    there is no plans for an ostr version

    A few weeks ago, you may have seen a star shape model and a request for an animation from yours truly. Well, bestdani took up my offer and here is the finished product, a rather marvellous physics-based Zierer star shape. Download in the first post.

    YES I NEED SOME GREAT RIDES FOR MY NEW PROJECT THANK YOU <333333

    Here's a ride you should make:
    http://larsonintl.com/the-hubless-wheel/

    I'd ask TCM for his Super Loop Model and replace the train with gondolas, I think it would be an awesome flat ride model!


    \/ If you were to color it, please release an all white version for recoloring :)

    The whole ride is very very dark and you cannot see the details very good. I really love the animation, scripting and sounds. Can you make the ride in bright funfair colors? I do not think a funfair ride like this would ever look so dark and black.

    The hubless wheel has already been made.

    Very cool Star Shape! How's the scale? Big enough for riders? This is a good resource if you need to check:

    ^That document is why I love zierer. I built the ride up from that plan, it fits perfectly within it.

    Can you recolor this starshape ride? I want to make it have much brighter colors.

    ^You can recolour it, just use the NL2MAT files included with the file. They are all named depending on what they recolour.

    This is all I could recolor it?

    <a href="http://imgur.com/5mFqqk2"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/5mFqqk2.png" title="source: imgur.com" width=1000/></a>

    It still does not seem to look bright and cheerful enough. I was hoping for actual different color customization. Like on the paratrooper ride from Joshua. That ride you can recolor every part to a true color and not just make the default colors brighter. Is this color issue a problem of Bender? That paratrooper ride was made in sketchup. Maybe that is why this starshape ride seems to not be able to be colored like that paratrooper ride.

    Will this flat ride get a facelift or a remodel? iSatnav says "Firstly, its a terrible model" "Instead of stealing my awful modelling work" He seems to know that it looks not the best these days. He made it in March 24 in 2016. I agree with him that it needs a update for this year with the new graphics engine in NL2.

    I highly doubt it, I haven't touched blender in months and I have a hell of a lot on my plate otherwise. As bestdani says, nothing stopping you if you think it could be better.
