    Hey everyone, its been some time since I have actively been on here and I was recently looking around and realized I never created a project thread for my countless Nl2 projects I have never released or shown anyone. So therefore, I finally decided to make this thread to show everyone things I am working on, have worked on, work on in the future, or plan to release. So welcome to my thread!

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________

    With all that out of the way here is a project I have constantly been coming back to and would eventually like to turn into my next project. I call it... Dyna-Mine

    Dyna Mine is a Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster that is themed around an abandon mine where all the workers all of a sudden vanished. The story will come in a later update and to see the previous updates of the project please check out the thread over on CoasterCrazy: https://www.coastercrazy.com/forums/nl2-project-thread-blase-rhine-t36886.html#p420280



    Moving onto the most recent update... In the time spent between posts, I brought on a good friend of mine RCW or Bryce as you may know him on the chats. He is extremely talented and is an amazing 3d modeler and track designer!

    So far we have came up with a story, overall theme, and unique scripting elements provided by the one and only Josh Valez.

    Onto what everyone wants to see, the pictures! Please note that everything you see below is purely aesthetic for the first update. Therefore mostly everything will and can be subject to change also, the next update will provide the important details and bare bones of the project! Enjoy!

    As for the complete layout and story/theme we will release that in the next update!
    Well that's all for now so let me know what all you think, I would love to hear your concerns, questions, or ideas! Thank you all!

    I think the supports at the bottom on that first pic seem a bit overkill in terms of density. Apart from that it looks really good, loving the custom 4 tube track and lift details.

    ^ I completely forgot to mention that the supports are all temporary in terms of density and placement. Bryce and I have plans to "hide" the supports within the scenery given and give it a immersive experience so therefore the supports will definitely be reworked and even redone before the final video and release.

    I'm really liking what I see, especially the shaping of the turn in the third pic. :)

    Well... since after revealing the idea for DynaMine several people became interested in the "mine" theming therefore I am putting this project on hold for a few months to let the theming idea die back down....

    On another note, I have picked up another project named Elementum. Elementum is going to (hopefully) be my most realistic project to date... It has a sci fi theme and story line (more on that later)... anyways, enjoy a sneak peek of the project!

    Incoming Message from ACE; Institute of Element Conservations:

    https://gyazo.com/d62065c78ccc196596cf50d19c93da93

    "Greetings patrons of the year 2034. We have important news in which we have bought the company IEC; Institute of Element Conservations, in which their intention was to provide more effective ways of producing energy from the 4 main elements, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Since acquiring the Institute of Element Conservations under the ACE company, we will be progressing forward in their original idea 17 years prior. We are proud to introduce the newest creation in terms of harnessing renewable energy and able to convert it into clean electricity: The EA-113 vehicle. We are not quite ready for a press release just yet but when we are we will be sure to let you know.

    -Stay tuned for more details and we appreciate your support in our endeavors,
    ACE

    Surely that would be IEC not ACE? Or is this some sort of Avatar themed ride using the Alpha Centauri Expeditions brand?

    ^The ride is in no way related to the Avatar land except the logo (which is actually still being worked on) and this project pulls some inspiration from the new land but in no way actually goes along with the idea of Avatar land.

    The ACE company bought out the Institute of Element Conservations and is continuing the previous work with ACE's new technology; the EA-113 vehicle. Hopefully that clears a bit up.

    Hi, regarding Elementum:
    1. In the first right turn into the launch area the first linear motor module is placed too close to the curve. The cars have magnets under them forming a narrow slit for the modules and these magnets will not be aligned straight until a bit further into the straight part.
    2. Why is there a catwalk on the first apex? Is there something to be maintenanced or can the train ever get stuck there?
    3. Flanges: I see it so often that support tube flanges aren't placed realistically. The reason steel tubes have flanges is so the parts are not too big for transport to the site. So the flanges are placed in a way to have many approx. equally sized parts. So don't place a flange one meter above a support (which is flanged itself), but a few meters higher. Same for all the rest of the supports, don't create unrealistic parts.
    4. Similarily, make sure all the bolts on the flanges are accesible to be tightened. Don't place flanges too close to a sharp angle, for example.
    5. Final brake run: Make sure the train can not be stopped to a halt (by E-Stop) when there are only brake fins. Eddy current brake fins can not stop a train when on a slope, the braking force weakens with decreasing speed! If there are pneumatic brakes later on, the train can get stopped to a halt by them. Also don't place the white linear motors on the final brake (if you did).
    6. I don't understand the magnetic brake fins on the transfer track and in the station.If a train is fast enough for them to be useful, something went very wrong before that. Even for them to be a safety measure, the shark right hand bend before them would be very uncomfortable at higher speeds. Please think logically about where to place all the different systems on the track.
    7. Your screenshot above shows multiple support tubes being too big for the connecting flange (to the track). A flange does not bolt into a support tube like that, all bolts need to be accessible from outside. Support tubes are just thin steel tubes with the flange plates welded to them:


    This picture shows a few of the points from above:

    ^ Woah thanks for all of that! Yes so ill double check eveyrthing and fix it. All of the supports except like 2 are going to be completely redone using the correct size of tube and correct supporting style. For the fins on the brake run ill keep that in mind and will look into changes. Thank you so much and stay tuned for more updates soon!
