Here's a list of some suggestions for custom scenery makers:

LIM's, and inverted LIM's
Hydralic lauch
Giga coaster brakes
Scaffolding support using the one in game (so you don't have to stack up yourself, don't think this will work)

Yes, I should go try it myself, but that editor stumped me so much, all these weird fields and I can't find any instruction on how to deal with them, and don't get what the flags were for. I was doing a very simple object for the scaffold support but had no success, all these unknown fields I'm not sure how to fill in but still have to to get it to work. Right now, I decided I didn't have the energy to go find out all this, so I guess I'll see if anyone else wants to do it.

No he means like "fins" that are on a rocket coaster. Just two peices that you place in the track to make it look more realistic. Like these. (http://www.rcdb.com/ig1574.htm?picture=12) I've been trying to do it but I'm not that great at it so....no luck.

I could probably make those very easily.......would you like them recolorable and would you want the hydrolics under them aswell?

That would be awsome!^but wouldnt it be a little hard to make the little hydraulics? but if it isn't to more the better. You Rule.:up: Recolorable would be nice.

would something like this be good??....only took 5 min to make.....although i still have to texture it then test it and resize it a few times. if anything needs to be changed then just tell me.....o and what parts do you want recolorable?

The only part I would like to have colored would be the buttom part. Does it fit on the track 2 next to each other?

unfrotunatly no.....im still busy with homwork and everything. I now have guitar practise 2 times a week, plus sports and i have a 7 page essay due this next friday.....plus the dead bodies are hard to make......why don't you learn how to make custom stuff yourself....it's well worth it. (If you are going to make your own i would suggest blender.....it's free and easy to use.)

O, didn't know you wanted 2 side by side.....i will have to expirment a little more with it......would you want the fins to be white or a differnt color...or recoloarable aswell?

Just get the fins to look as much as a possible like the ones on Excel...so no not colorable. Thanks again...I see you are busy so take your time.

ok, i got them....I'm going to make them recolorable anyway.....i just can't make recolorable pictures.....so i will get someone to, and it should be released tonight. I will post pictures later and I know that they look good with the stormrunner coaster.....but not sure how they look with others.....didn't have time, so i may wait till tomorrow and make a couple more to fit other coasters.:up:


EDIT: here is the hydrolics at work:

If you think they need to be higher/lower than just tell me.

i did find a flaw......they decrease FPS dramatically....i didn't think i made the poly count that high but i must have so i will make a low poly version aswell and include that. as you can see from the picture they work good with almostall coasters.

Very nice work Zepplin, those look great & fit a lot of different tracks. I would say a lower poly version would be very helpful for a lot of people, maybe just use a 6 sided cylinder for the "tube" or base for it. It'll still look fairly round & should help the fps out.

yeah, i made one with a pentagon and it increased the fps a lot and you can see when your all the way zoomed out as well.:)

I'll release asap, but im having a little trouble with textures.....i think it may be blender because different parts are the worng color.......i'll give it a few more tries.....if i can't get it do you think you could do the texture marnetmar?....it'd be simple.

Sure thing Zepplin, if you can't get it to work just let me know & you can send it to me. We'll get it working one way or another.

Great job! I can't wait for you to release them...they will be very useful.
