    Sorry for the triple post but none of that has to do with this. I've talked with pipes and he's done with the track. No changes... The bumps are there to stay.

    meow, level all that crap xbadx scewed it up with and start from scratch. I want a little pond by one of the helixes to give a little effect. Make sure that theres a little dip in the ground at the bottom of the first drop. You might have to raise the ground around it a little to get the ravine effect I'm lookin for.

    I'l ltry to do some of that, but mostly I'll make up my own stuff for good effects. Worry you not, I'll delete the current terrain file.

    You guys can change the colors if you want, I just made it those colors for while I worked on it because I don't like the standard plain white.

    Oh, and meow, could you use the track I uploaded in this post? If you've done anywork just save the terraforming file thing and import it into this track.
    Erik left the conroll option on on one of the vertices on the final brake run which made it twist and not be perfectly straight.

    ^NO!!?!! I said check posts 22 and 23. That's proof that you did let me in. You're discriminating me just because I might not be as good, and the fact that including me in something would make you look like a bad person because you're even including me. Mabye you should see how Loki is so nice to even let people worse than me in his project. mabye you should trip and slide on your flat face into a day care center where you belong!


    ps. thanks Matt! that insult lesson is doing wonders for me!

    EDIT- meow I can't believe you either, what is the problem with everyone? mods please ban pipes and jim AND meow for discrimination, it's against the law. This is a public place, discrimination is illigal here. You can beat up all people you want at home just because they're a diffrent race, sex, religion, or if they're just plain not as good as you. Thank you mods in advance for closing this thread too.

    Dude, no one is discriminating you for anything. Jim is running this project, so he has control over who can participate and who can't. You're whining posts have become extremely annoying. If you were on the list to participate in this project I don't blame him for kicking you off of it. No one wants to work with someone who is miserable and whines about every single little thing.

    Holy **** you need to be tazered.

    You have posted in this thread, 4 or 5 times.

    I never let you in, you just assumed I said you could

    Loki's project is TURN BASED mine is JOB BASED. Two completely different things.

    I want this to turn out somewhat good meaning your outta here.

    Its not against the law to discriminate, if the mods feel the "need" to listen to a lunatic, let them do so.

    Your terraforming sucks.

    Wow!!

    This ride has a great layout. i never seen it before, but it looks great. here are some things that I have to b**** about, so don't get offended:

    1. That lift hill is very steep.
    2. The Zero G roll looks a bit oddly shaped.
    3. Who prefabbed have of that ride? Come one, If you want, I can support it, but the prefabs gotta go.

    Anyway, I'm working on the terrain, I'll post it up here later.

    There are several bumps and odd places I know but when the trackers are done, trackwork is closed. I was upset about the helix before the MCBR but we'll live.

    The prefabs were for lining up the track and stuff like that put in by the trackers. When you get done with the terra meow, post it with the prefabs and the supporters or I'll take care of it.

    Heres the deal, lets just ignore anything in this thread until a mod takes care of the situation.
    I don't think fighting back is going to help at all, it will only make things worse and I really would hate to see anyone get banned or have this thing get closed.

    So until a mod or someone else who has the authority to fix the situation, lets all just ignore anything that xbad says in this thread.

    xbadx, call someone else a nazi and see yourself banned forever. I've had enough. Calling someone a nazi is bad enough. Watch your words, and don't post on impulse. Email me if you have the notion to discuss this further.

    Cool! The parf after the MCBR is my part of the track :P I added that extra roll before the final helix because otherwise it would be too long of a track without any elements.

    And about the prefabs, as I have said before, they were just for testing the colors. I said: when the track is done, all supports can be removed. They were just for the colors.

    ^yes it does

    I did most of the terraforming, there is some more to do, but nothing where the supports will interact, so the supporters can begin.

    I think the trackwork people can still do some smoothing, but w/e.

    All of the bodies of water, including the one that surrounds the island, canhave supports put in them, because they are all closed up. But, if you want to make it really cool, build several bridges, like Matt M showed on one of his oasters, and it'll look great. Only bad thing is that the heartline roll and inclined loop will have to be completely bridge. It really shouldn't be too hard, and it'd look cool.

    I recently made a bridge on my coaster, Panthera Onca, so it shouldn't be half as hard for this ride, if you aren't going to do what Matt M did (I forget what the ride was called).

    Also, who is doing the cartexture, and when? I know both me and Pipesdrums wantto make it, but seing as a floorless is very simple to make, it wouldn't makse sese to fight over it.

    Ok, before we do a cartexture, we need to come up with a theme. I'll have to talk with Tyrant about a theme and I'll propose what we come up with.

    Terraforming looks good. I love the ground hugging helixes and the first drop. I'm going to do some smoothing on it a little bit but nothing much. And there were a couple places where the track collided with the ground but those are easy fixes.

    I found some track faults. I'm not going to fix them, only the trackers can. Theres a tunnel collision where the track goes under the end brake run. I don't see how to fix it but it would be nice if it were.

    Its all coming together greatly! About the bridges, I want to have a very ride interacted queue so I'll have the bridges and stuff like that.

    Supporters can start. Please go by B&M standards and clean the supports up and add flanges. If you have the auto flanger use it, if not, I'll do them. Look at pics of B&M cobra rolls, drops, helixes, corks, and all that stuff and go by those. It makes it real, true, and good-looking. If you see the opportunity for head or feet choppers, take them, but don't wonder too far from standard designs.

    Hey,
    Everything is lookin good. Congrads Jim on keeping everyone in order, and congrads everyone else for your out standing work, keep it up!

    Just a quick comment.
    I noticed on this ride that it has been built a certain way. On just about every track segment, there is no gradual lead in. Its like a quick bank, upslope what ever. And then it follows through and then a quick lead out. Its not really qraudual. I know what you are building my B&M Standereds and thats fine B&M builds like that so you all hit the target head on. I just though i would point that out, just because in my pov i like me leadins ect. But anyway i love teh layout and high speeds. Packed with thrills all way through. But my only problem with this rollercoaster that i dont like is the mid corse breaks. They slow you down to much in my pov. Ya there would be higher g's with out them but i just dont like the speed lose. Other then that this ride is really good.

    Keep up the good work guys.

    - Max

    P.S. - I love that support color (even tho its only temp) but then again it just doesnt fit some how.

    I like sudden g changes, especially verticals. Lats no but verts yea. I was worried about slowing the track because it does seem slower at the end but gs are still thrilling so I guess its ok.

    EDIT: I just looked and the positive gs stay fine are really more intense but the lats on the corks get a little high at 1.7. I haven't ridden a comfortable cork yet even on a B&M so IDK. Its up to you guys. Keep the brake at slowing the train or no slowing?

    Um . . . . . Personaly i would take like half of the current G's off of the break run, but i am not in this project and that is only my pov.

    But ya everyone has there own style of building.

    You should go to AT in England. Ride the Cork Screw, best cork screws in the world, nice and smooth. Its not a grate ride but the cork screws are really nice and smooth. Better then SMKC's and Nemesis / Inferno, ect. If you ever get the chance, go.

    I'll terrain up some more when you all get bored of building other stuff, because I still need to do that area around the outsides of the map, so it looks realistic. So far it's like a hilly swamp type of area.

    Remember to keep around 2 feet of ground clearance from the track.

    I havent' been able to contact Tyrant so I'm going to take suggestions from the people who've worked on the coaster.


    These are some ideas I've come up with.

    1: African Savanna-those trees and corresponding animals
    2: Desert/Egyptian-tunnels through pyramids
    3: Aqua-water tunnels with animals and mists
    4: Military-tanks, planes, barbed wire, maybe an atomic bomb
    5: Castle-abutments, towers, rock walls
    6: Jungle-overgrown feeling, corresponding animals
    7: Superhero-any of the superheros not used allready


    Decide over these or post your own ideas for a theme.

    Well I didnt have a chance to start on the supports last night, my june coaster took longer then I planned, and Im going out of town until Sunday so I wont be able to start until then. So if you guys do more terraforming or trackwork just upload the file when your done and Ill start supports on that one. Meow your terraforming is really close to the track in a couple of spots, I dont think supports would show up in those spots, so you might consider editing them a bit or I can when Im supporting.

    Edit: BTW I vote for the aqua theme, since I like the blue colors.
    Im the stupidest genius alive!!!

    About the support thing, it would be cool to have no footers under water... I know it would make the job harder, but the result would be very cool.

    As for themeing, I would go for 3 or 6, or maybe 5.
