Re: Oblivion Floorless

Without wanting to go off topic, why is it that some Oblivion shuttles have no logo on the centre of the front row? :?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Two things: 1. It's interesting to see the running wheels barely touch the track on the vertical lift! (Watch them carefully in that video) 2. Is the Flasher going to strobe or what??
