I know that the effectiveness and overall look of the coaster can be drastically improved with some awesome terrain editing! So click on the link below and get started! Be sure to post pics of your terrain koasters either here or at my forums! Enjoy! Best of Luck! :D :up:

Here are pics of what I have done with terrain koasters:

NOTE: Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I thought that as very few people go to the tutorial forum, and this is a coaster tutorial, that this would be a good place for it! But, feel free to move it if you want! :p :up:

Great tutorial Koaster Kid! :up: One question: How do you get those inclinded loops on the Hyper Coaster? I have Wild! but haven't seen those inclined pieces.

Excellent tutorial, very much thanks KoasterKid23. This will really help people do better coaster, and not only that but also track rides.:D

Thanks you two! I'm glad it helped you guys!

Imaginator- I used the extended coaster and you can change the train to whatever type you want. But for the inversion you are talking about, I used 2 Dive loops to create the inclined loop feel. You need to be going at a diagonal angle and steep inlcine in order to start the pieces... Hopefully you can figure out the rest from there! :D :up:

I'll definately try to help out any questions people have, so keep um coming! :cool: :up:

Good tutorial KK, it's rather hard at times to make good terrain coastes and I use that exact same stategy on my coasters:D

This is a great tutorial. I always have a hard time with the terrain because I'm so focused on the coaster that I forget to make the hills as I go. This works out much better, and I'll give it a whirl with my next coaster.
