    You'll know that in 3 days or so.

    I'm more insterested in who got the 9.75 rating and why.
    Not that this person didn't deserve it, but what was the reason behind that rating?

    Sorry for everyone who was waiting for the results today, but we had a bit of a mix up in the judging process and will have to delay the results until tomorrow. The results will be posted by 12 PM PST and round 2 will still start on the 1st of August as scheduled.

    Thanks!

    Thank you everyone for a great first round of the 2017 Nolimits Tournament! We received some great entries and spent a few weeks deliberating the final scores. We received 33 entries and had to narrow it down to just half of that for round 2. Because of this, only the top 16 will be moving on, but due to a tie for 16th place 17 members will proceed to round 2. Attached below is the rankings for each member including the average score which was comprised of the scores from all 3 judges. If your name is bolded in the list you will be moving on to round 2. Unfortunately, if your name is not bolded you will not continue to the next round. For more information about your scores please do not hesitate to contact the judges (Blase Rhine, Metazoanhaddock, Paradox). Once again thanks to everyone who participated and don't forget round 2 starts tomorrow!





    Congratulations to slosprint (Sam) for winning the first round with his outstanding entry "Rebel"

    Wow, Rebel looks so cool! and I am happily surpised to see that I made it to the next round!! Goodluck to everyone else who'se still competing and for those who unfortunately didn't make it, better luck next time

    ROUND 2: The Gerstlauer Challenge


    Congratulations on making it to the second round! For your second round you must twist your thoughts and bring out your inner demons and build a kickass Gerstlauer Rollercoaster! Your task is simple, from the list below choose a coaster style and follow the restricitons also listed below:

    -Gerstlauer Euro-FIghter 2
    -Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster
    -Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster 2
    -Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster

    Once you have chosen 1 of the coaster styles from the list above, you must use your imagination and create a coaster unlike anything else! But beware, the curveballs for this round are more challenging than before and there are twists around every corner...

    NOTE: If you choose a spinning coaster design you must incorporate at least 3 inversions other than a loop.

    -Your coaster must have a minimum height of 70 feet (21.336 meters). Max height is 115 feet (35.052 meters).
    - Your coaster must have at least 1 vertical lift within the layout.(this must be a 90 degree angle).
    -Your coaster must have safe and comfortable g forces.
    -Your coaster must stay true to what Gerstlauer would design based on G-Forces and Shaping. (old school or new school).


    The first curveball will come out Tuesday, August 8th. So be sure to check then for your first curveball!

    Please note that you will be judged on the following:

    -How realistic your design is for each manufacturer.
    -Are your g forces in check?
    -Support work
    -Track work
    -Overall Impression (does your coaster look appropriate for the specified area?, Colors, etc. This is the extra credit points)
    -Operations
    -It must pass all clearance and block tests.

    *You are allowed to use custom skyboxes and 3d scenery if you feel fit.

    Your judges are

    -Myself, Head judge
    -Paradox,originality/rules judge
    -Daniel (Metazoanhaddock), Support judge

    The submissions must be sent to contests@nolimitscoaster2.com by August 26th at midnight EST.

    Just to double check because I'm partially in disbelief, we have 25 days for this round? August 1st-26th?
  6.  
    That is correct! There are several people traveling as well as the 5 hours of Power contest hosted by the dev team on August 27th so we are working around their schedule and travel schedules and allowing a longer round. This does mean that the curveballs are more challenging than before. Good luck!

    ATTENTION:

    We have hired a new judge to help us out for this round! Some of you may know him from his extremely detailed and highly themed euro fighter, Scourge. But for many we simply know him as COASTERGUY246. Please extend a warm welcome and stay tuned for the first curveball coming next week!

    Curveball 1 is night, no lighting, black track/supports. Visibility must be reduced to less than 5 feet. Your coaster experience will be judged only by the real time g-force readings.

    ^do the clouds glow because of nuclear fallout? is nolimits 2 set in a post-nuclear war world? is that why everything is so barren and far away? have the roller coasters become sentient? is that why they run on their own?

    First off, my apologies on the delay. I have been extremely busy with school starting back up and my job has been a hassle lately but I finally have had enough time to actually sit down and write the first curveball for the second round up! Without further ado lets get to it...
    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Gerstlauer Challenge- Curveball #1

    As with many projects there are many changes. With this being said, I now present to you another challenge... you must build a Gerstlauer boomerang coaster ALONG with your other design. The two must interact with one another at least twice and must use the same Gerstlauer styles listed before.

    The boomerang coaster MUST go forwards and backwards and have an immelman or dive loop somewhere in its layout. Other inversions are permitted however, you can only have 2 in the layout. The coaster MUST also not exceed 90 feet (27.432 Meters) in height.



    GOOD LUCK and let me know if you have any questions at all!
  11.  
    Question:
    Is a shuttle like Gold Rush acceptable?

    Official Judges Answer:
    Yes! Your coaster can be a boomerang style (incomplete circuit) or a shuttle like Gold Rush (full circuit).


    Question:
    Define "interact" for this curveball, are we talking TRAINS interact or just the track?

    Official Judges Answer:
    Interactions can be train to train or train to track, as long as the interaction is between the two rides and not self-interaction. Personally, I'd recommend train to track interactions (like headchoppers) because with differing lengths of track and block sections it'd be rather hard to get the two trains to duel to guarantee interaction without sacrificing capacity on the shuttle/boomerang.


    Question:
    Does a norwegian loop or batwing count as a dive/immelmann?

    Official Judges Answer:
    Yes, it can! However, the inversion count is still banking dependent, so it could count as anywhere from 0-2.
    As for the Immelmann/Dive requirement, the element must count as an inversion (banking over 155 degrees). As such, your Norwegian Loop or Batwing should pass 155 degrees at least once to cover the requirement.


    Hope this is helpful
