    I love these construction pics! (you could even add ropes to maintain the supports in place, before everything is connected)

    ^Isn't it a dive loop?

    I think u r right. An Immelman has the opposite travel direction.

    Might want to move that track connection point down a bit so it dosen't intersect with the loop support.

    Loving the realistic construction updates so far!

    I'm disappointed that the entire coaster isn't upside down.

    It's been a week and almost the entire coaster is built? Damn, these guys are quick.

    In seriousness, looks like a really fun layout from what I can see, I'm excited to see it all "put together".

    Well here it is, the layout reveal. I'll be gone for a few days so that's why I reveal it now already.

    Why are there tracks where the track dives below the ground?

    ^Forgot to set them on invisable and tunnel mode

    It's a good layout, very B&M, only critique I have is the first support of the Dive Loop. A regular /\ type support (Such as the one next to it) should suffice there, rather than the ugly/un-B&M like support you have currently. You'll also need at least one more support under the airtime hill.

    Yeah, I 'll put an extra support under the airtimehill it is indeed needed. I tried to have a 'normal' support for the diveloop but ended up with a slightly odd result anyway, and since B&M sometimes use a weird looking support for their coasters I taught that this would be fine too. (Hollywood Dream for instance)

  5.  
    The supports are like that on Hollywood dream because they're supporting two tracks, which is very rare for B&M (the entire ride is a bit of an oddity tbh, but they provided what the park wanted).

    I do think a normal support would work better in this circumstance though, there doesn't seem enough reason not to have a regular support, and B&M's are about the support aesthetic.

    ^ The reason is it has to avoid the tunnel underneath (see the pic with scenery).

    I like that layout, really realistic, not too long, but interesting at the same time especially that airtime hill! I like the two-toned supports, too.
  6.  
    Even a normal /\ frame would still give enough clearance though, you can tell by the concrete tunnel in the blank environment pictures, there's tons of room (even if you were to use a 6/8/10 person car there'd be enough room).

    Still odd support, why not do THIS (1) instead of your version (2).
    Version 1 in the linked image makes perfect sense and is perfect B&M like support.

    And take a good look at your flanges please.

    Actually that support is perfectly acceptable.

    I think that support is fine but I would give it a little more of a perpendicular angle to the track. Love this layout a lot.

    Thanks for helping me finding out what the best solution is for the supports, there are stills some small things i need to change, but i will do that when i've finished the main things of the park.

    Small station update:
     width=1000

    Very realistic layout I can see this dive machine being build in reality!

    Thnx!^

    Here are some render I made of the exterior of the building. I decided to give it a slightly different look than the building has in real life (Since i didn't like the red painted bricks for example)
     width=1000
     width=1000
     width=1000

    Yes it's me haha.

    I pop by from time to time I'm trying to follow coaster stuff abit more at the minute with all the new great coasters coming in 2018.

    I love stranger things and think it's a great concept to work with. I think this whole thing is awesome however for realism purposes I'd love to see a smaller scale area that would fit into an actual park rather than a park wide theme. I still love it though!
