Although I love this game, I'm not very good at the editor. Whenever a try to make two turns in a row, my coasters usually jerk in between the turns. Can anyone tell me how to make nice, fluid turns? Thanks so much.

I could help you but you would have to be more specific on what your trying to do.

I think his problem is (mine too) is that it is very difficult to make a constant radius curve that continues on for more than one segment.

Practice makes perfect....

All I can say to help is that if your trying to make an S turn....then once you complete one turn....add a vertex between the turns and make it as long as you need to in order to make it fluid. Just keep that segment straight. and

Thanks guys! I guess it's just hard to make consecutive turns with a constant radius, like you said. I'll keep practicing, though, and hopefully one of these days, I'll get it. Thanks again!

I find that using C2 helps a lot when smoothing out turns. Transitions are hard, but I don't put a vertex at 0*. I use the inside 3-d to make sure that you aren't turning the against the bank at any time, because that just makes it worse. The less vertices, the better!

Alright, I'll try C2. Thanks!
