Thought I'd drop a little update on how my visualisation's coming along, really making good headway predicting the profiling and how each section will ride from the bents, here it is!

@PhNx survivor - Yeah this is in NL2, it's all being made as an asset for Virtual Towers Online of course though, but I'm just doing it in NL2 to see how it's going to run :)

Absolutely, my Twitch channel is DanSm1l3r, can be found here. Note though that only my last stream stays online, so if I stream again anytime soon (probably not until the weekend) the last one will disappear.

Thanks, looks great! It's nice to see it 'offride' as well, gives you a sense of scale with this thing!

Thinking another update is due, I've changed the wood colour to better match SW8 now, and plenty more has been made, including the steel frame for the preshow building, the sound tunnel bents for the first drop, and I've also remodeled the lift structure to a better standard! Things are progressing nicely, but I'm missing enough references for the area between the station and the theming element, since you can't see far enough down there from the Skyride. Enjoy the update!

Figured we all deserve an update on how I'm faring with this since the season is now over, so I recorded a POV! A keen eye will notice I've restarted the supports now, after not being happy with the beam dimensions before.

But anyway, here's your POV and keep in mind, it's heavy work in progress still!
