I might still continue swift blue, but right now I created a small gigi (sp?) coaster. I've only themed the que but i did it in an interesting way. At first I decided to just have one onride event as a main scenery item by the queu, but i decided to expand upon that idea. Here is some pics of the que:

Lots more scenery will be added ;) I'm also adding in pumper's supports right now (thanks pumper).

I knew I spelled the coaster wrong. Yes the pics look like one giant one :D . And yes all of the events are timed in order with the ride. No two go off at the same time, they all go off in order.

I'm getting to that vortexian ;) I added in pumper's supports. The whole coaster is now supported with his supports, there's none of the originial supports in this coaster. Though the supports may be a bit "awkward" I'm not the best at adding in supports. Here are some pics:

Entrance to the ride (I had to put the supports like that because otherwise a bar would be going through the center of the path/entrance =/

Sideview of the ride

Now all I have to do is add scenery to the ride. I'll also make an onride video after I add scenery. Please post any comments questions, etc. Thanks for looking :)

The coaster and the supports look great, but the scenery is a little ugh...maybe blend terrain to fit the ride events or somethin or get rid of one or two of the ride events.Other than that nice job

If you look at the first pics you can see that the terrain was colored according to the ride event. I had to save the coasater and start it in another park though to get pumper's supports. That's why it isn't there in the second set of pics (makes mental note to self to recolor the terrain).

Yes I do, do you have any suggestions? I just did the hyper dual force beam thing throughout the ride, it seemed to fit best with the coaster.
EDIT:
:cry: I accidently saved over the park this was in so it got deleted :( I'll probably rebuild it later on in this park:

I still have the track itself with some of the scenery saved but, I'd still have to add in the supports and lots of other stuff. I'll port a link again when i add it into that park.

I don't get the point of this ride at all. I mean there's pointless ride events weird supports, there's more ride events for the path then there is the coaster! Plus the first drop is a turn so I really wouldn't go on it, and that's about all.

I'm sorry but this is what I feel and many other people on these forums that are too scared to let it out.
