Dan C's NL2 creations

Thu Mar 26, 2015 3:40 pm

I thought I had a topic for this already, turns out I didn't. This topic is for my own designs. Starting with Jet Rescue. An old project of mine that I've managed to recover and am currently in the process of improving. Let me know what you think!
-Dan
*WARNING* Picture heavy topic, this post particularly.
First launch into a series of overbanked turns
Image
Second launch into a large corkscrew (Helix style)
Image
Leaving the first inversion
Image
Vertical loop followed by a heavily banked turn/dive
Image
Twisted airtime hill after a tunnel
Image
Another tunnel precedes this partially underground helix
Image
Third launch leads directly into an airtime hill
Image
Twisted hill followed by an Immelmann inversion
Image
Another twisted airtime hill after the Immelmann
Image
A high speed turn leads into another airtime hill followed by a zero G roll
Image
The Zero G roll dives towards the water, quickly rising up into a brake run. The train exits this and spirals round into a drop that will have a wooden building constructed around the bottom of it.
Image
Leading up from the drop is a series of twists and turns, interrupted only by a corkscrew that provides rides with a short moment of hangtime.
Image
The turns lead into a moment where riders are at an elevated level, which doesn't last long due to a sharp drop towards the water.
Image
From that drop a splashdown is simulated by water jets as the train navigates a gentle but high speed curve just above the water's surface.
Image
Finally riders return to the ground as they jump up into the final brake run and back to the station.
Image
And to finish off with, an overhead shot of the whole ride.

A lot's been done since the first post here, so I thought I'd make a post showing all the new stuff!
Jet Rescue's been changed to a MACK launched coaster, recoloured and seen some layout changes (It will also be renamed so I need suggestions)
Image
Image
Image
Oasis (Formerly Manta), a B&M flyer has been worked on, with all the supports complete except for the final brake run
Image
Image
Image
And the as yet unnamed Gerstlauer Eurofighter has a rather unique indoor segment.
Image
Image

Feedback is appreciated! :)

Ah, another flyer with the fly-to-lie, at last!
Will you be doing videos for these?

At the current moment I don't have the freedom to upload videos to YouTube at all but I am looking into getting a new laptop which I will have complete freedom over, so I should be able to make videos by the time these rides are finished yes :)

I suppose an additional laptop might allow less lag and more data for the project, if you share the project between both machines(but I don't really know how computers and laptops work so this could in fact be a useless post) :P

Thanks NemesisRider for this personalised sig :)

So I have made my first attempt at making a video for one of my coasters, it's Predator. A B&M Wing Coaster set in a forest clearing, see the video here: https://youtu.be/yAl5ihTpjCU
Enjoy! :)

I've been working on a new coaster near Icefall (A B&M Floorless coaster in a fir forest), called Snowstorm. The name is staying, but I'm uncertain about leaving the track AND supports bare white. It's utilising Intamin's double spine track and has two launches. A unique to Intamin element is also present, with the heartline following a similar path to an Immelmann, but the peak is not inverted. Instead the track twists up and outwards at the top :)
Enjoy!

Little update from the Oasis Springs park, Jet Rescue has had more supports placed, and Oasis has had the track colour toned down. The Eurofighter has had more work done elsewhere, involving the entire indoor segment being redone (The indoor dive loop didn't work out too well, guess Gerstlauer just weren't meant to make small dive loops ;) )

That flying coaster looks incredible! Not a NoLimits person here, but tried it a few times and personally i think its amazing that anyone can build something that good on it, I couldn't even get a simple oval to look right :lol:

It's been a long time since I posted in this topic but I thought I'd bring something new again. An unnamed wing coaster with a planned demonic possession theme. Because of the theme several elements are 'inclined' including the initial wing over drop, and the central area that the plaza will be near is intertwined.

I'm currently stuck for names, but the colour scheme stays. Any ideas feel free to pipe up :)

I'm aware of the issues with images in the above post, it's due to them being Gyazo screenshots as opposed to Imgur uploads. Here's some more up to date screenshots of Project Demon. Got big plans for this area, hoping for a fully themed area.

Fixed those images for you - if you right click the images displayed at the original links you get the option to 'copy image address/url' :)

All looks good though! Is the inclusion of the Boomerang coaster inspired by Taron/Raik? :P

Yeah there's some minor inspiration there, plus I felt something could be used with the wing coaster's inclined dive loop, so I had some interaction between the coasters :)
