    Hi everyone,

    at first, please excuse my bad Englisch. I try my best, but I'm from Germany... ;-)

    Two days ago there was Montu's 20th birthday.
    If you dont know Montu, it is located in Busch Gardens, Tampa, Florida USA.

    For this annyversary I created a recreation of Montu.
    Unfortunately I can't share my work here, because there is an upload limit of 200MB. But the file size of Montu ist more than 800MB.

    So I had the idea to share my Montu recreation via YouTube video with you.

    https://youtu.be/9b_saJ5qqMs

    Have fun and enjoy!

    The 3d work is stunning! The trackwork could use some work.

    Thanks, I'm happy that you like the scenery. :-)
    But what's wrong with the tracks?
  1.  
    The 3D work truly is amazing! The trackwork, however, is pretty bad in some places. The Immelmann and Zero G roll especially, but also just some of the banking in places.

    Okay, thanks for your comment, too.
    I try to make it more perfect in my next project.
    By the way, this was my third coaster with NoLimits2 ever.
    I think I need some more practice... ;-)

    I just have to echo what everyone else says. BGT is my home park, so I know it pretty well, and your modeling is absolutely spot on. There's nothing I can see that is done wrong. The only thing that needs work is the track work. But your modeling skills are incredible.

    Does it go that speed IRL? I would imagine the usual B&M friction look on it.
    • CommentAuthorRailrunner
    • CommentTimeMay 18th 2016
     
    Yes, the speed is correct.
    I spent a lot of time for fine tuning the speed... :-)

    Wow, the scenery is spot-on indeed. Having been to BGT a zillion times, I'm amazed at how close it is, from the scale to the textures. How the hell did you get it so accurate??

    Keep working on your track-building skills and I could definitely see you putting out some amazing rides and recreations in the future.

    Many thanks to all of you for watching the YouTube Video of "Montu" nearly 1000 times!

    Hopefully the new NL2 forum which I think is called NLC will allow files of up to 1GB. Will definitely check out the Montu rec.

    EDIT: next time don't use the friction wheels on the final brake. it's not prototypical

    Your trackwork is still a lot better than mine. I'm horrible with tracks and am more a scripting kind of person.

    That said... Wow, I loved it! I have been to Busch Gardens for the first time last month and I loved the park. Rollercoasters are so much bigger in the USA!

    The scenery is still wonderful, however the trackwork and especially rolls seem to be a bit rough at some places.

    Nice done so far!

    I think the trackwork will be better next time.
    This was my first big project and I learned a lot during building.... ;-)

    I'm happy that you like the scenery! Thanks!

    Will it be availible on the Steam Workshop? I think more people would be interested to play with it once it's done.

    Yes, you can download it on Steam Workshop! Search for "Montu Recreation".... ;-)
