    Hi all. I have a question about rct 2. How do you increase chain lift speeds over 8 mph?
    I went to rct2.com and the vacation parks. and many of there coasters had up to 224 mph on there chain lift speeds.

    I am having a Speedzone problem. For the last few weeks whenever I go into SZ the newest 10 coasters are from a few weeks ago. I have to go into to NL to see the new coasters. This is not a big problem but something that is odd. Has anyone else experienced this or know how to fix it?

    Due to the limitations of rct2, I believe that is impossible. Unless however, they used a trainer. If you are not familiar with what it is, heres a link that might be helpful. http://www.geocities.com/jmanderson_...s/trainers.htm

    Every once in a while I use the "8 cars per trainer" just for fun.. I gave up on rct2 though since I found NoLimits.
    Can't wait for those to strap me into Maverick!

    Speedzone is no longer an active feature of Thrillnetwork. Thats why you are unable to get into it at this time.

    Because of compatibility issues with the new version of our site we have closed SpeedZone in the form it used to be in. We will still however have it open in the SeedZone forums. If there is a large demand to bring back SpeedZone in a form similar to the way it previously was then we might consider doing it.

    According to Steven's blog about Speedzone, the files have not been deleted.
    If you are using SpeedZone, some of you are probably feeling a bit of outrage, and wondering what will happen to your work. Rest assured, your work will not be lost. However, it will be unavailable until we can figure out what to do and how to make the files available within the new site. If you wish to share new files, The SpeedZone forums will remain in place, and files can continue to be uploaded there.
    Ask me why I say Banshee is NOT the new Kings Island coaster.
    Be sure to check out Speedzone as I have made 11 additions.

    This sucks. If there's not much demand for it, the Speedzone could disappear forever. Please let there be more demand!! The Speedzone is part of the reason I joined TN back in 2006.

    I think the issue is the lack of activity in coaster games in general the last few years. I've seen activity in large RCT or NL sites come nearly to a halt. I think if TN could adopt constructive rating systems as used on other sites, and could bring more quality people to this site for those games in general, you may see a reason to bring it back. However, as the site currently stands, there isn't much going on here outside of general park and coaster discussions. It's hard for any one site to be ALL to the amusement industry... You're always going to have groups of people going one place instead of another... Just how people are.

    I uploaded coasters in the hopes someone could enjoy them, not rip them to shreds. and that's also how I viewed downloads...as something I could enjoy. If I'm going to be judged on new Element standards on TN, then there's no point in me uploading to SpeedZone.

    Plain and simple.

    I'm not saying people should be judged... Just use a more inclusive rating system to provide better and more complete feedback to those looking for opinions
