Vanilla 1.1.9 is a product of Lussumo. More Information: Documentation, Community Support.


    This is a ride concept i was testing around with over the week, and I have got it to a point where its in a presentable state. I plan to give this fairly minimal but effective Space theming, although im not 100% sure what to do for it. If anyone has some ideas, leave them in the thread!



    Slightly modified LSM's from TCM's premier kit

    Under station maintenance area

    Station area (No gates because of the clearance with the stock ones)

    Basic building frame

    Please leave any Ideas for the ride (Things I should change, add e.c.t.). Hope you like it so far!

    the interior of your station is really dark, I suggest having some opening or transparent material, as it would brighten the space and engage the ride passing above. looks cool so far

    So it has a name now, hey? :) Looking good. I know you mentioned somewhere else that you weren't sure if you wanted it to be a spinner, but i'd say it's fine as a spinner. You don't see too many spinning coasters like that, they're usually far more sedate.
    And i agree with A113 about putting some skylights in the roof. Doesn't have to be anything too fancy, just a few holes with a transparent NL2mat over them to let light in.

    @A113: I will look into adding skylights after some more details are fitted on the ride

    @Womp83 Thanks for the praise! After considering a few things It will stay a spinning coaster, purely because without it, the ride loses its main concept draw

    Here is a video showing the ride in action (Also I have now added a filled in spine, Recommended by RCW)

    I think the ride is a little bit slow. You could crank up the speed a little bit more as it barely makes it through the loop
    ^ Maybe a little faster to reduce the chances of a rollback in wind etc. but I like the slow hangtime loop. I also like it as a spinner!

    But now I have to change this ;)

    Looks like a buyer has emerged for this prototype ride, A small park that goes by the name of Riverside Amusements

    Made using mostly Community assets and the new scenery packs found in NL2, This park is simple and serves as an environment for the ride to sit in. I will release a version with no park around it as well once its finalised

    Apollo has also received some station Detailing, and also some sensors courtesy of TCM

    Lots of things happening in personal life right now, But i hope to get this released in the near future, as its almost done!
    Looking fab! Perhaps some lights inside the tunnel timed to the train would be cool.
    Its Out!

    Unfortunately I couldnt do all the stuff I wanted to the ride, but it still works as a concept

    Apollo 13 Stalls every time I want to try it... sometimes it stalls in the loop, sometimes in the barrel roll... wtf.
    Its due to nl2's physics being a bit broken when the park lags or if time is sped up. I have uploaded a blank park version to stop this happening to people with less powerful computers:

    And there is video proof that the ride does work perfectly fine (at least on my computer):

    Yep I actually restarted NL2 and it works now. Weird.
