Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

Haven't uploaded anything for a while, so here's a design for the ultimate home-made roller coaster: Backyard Blunder!

Re: Facebook statuses that really drive you nuts

I'm just sick of every conversation on there revolving around either a) how people became smashed the weekend prior or b) how they're going to get smashed on the following one. What's worse is when people try to make some crappy excuse up as to why they act like that by saying their life is bad just...

Re: gta v

I love GTA and I can't wait for 5 to come out because it looks to be the best yet. It combines the graphics and stories of GTA 4 with the scale and setting of San Andreas! Fingers crossed for more easter eggs! :D

Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

I'll give it a go. I've imported a test version of another coaster into RCT3... and it sort of failed. :P I've posted the results over in the RCT Questions topic. However, I will get a coaster or two ready and theme them in RCT3 eventually. Unfortunately I doubt that I'll ever be able to make them w...

Re: RCT Quick Questions

Anyone here know how to add splines to track for RCT3? I'm importing a No Limits model I made into RCT3 so that I can theme it for my No Limits thread, but if anyone knows how to turn it into a working ride then that would be cool! 8) :P I would advise you to ask on another site Al.

Re: RCT Quick Questions

I'm worried about SGW as there are a few 'V.I.P' members that don't like making ct in this manner and instead of leaving topics be, they childishly ruin them. :/ All I've found so far on this matter is this . For now I'll make the model and see if my PC is powerful enough to get it into RCT3. If not...

Re: What is so bad about Nemesis Inferno?

In comparison to many other B&M's, Nemesis Inferno isn't as good. That isn't to say that it's a poor coaster. There are positive aspects to it, such as the station, music, pacing, etc... I think trying to compare it to Nemesis didn't help it. It isn't landscaped at all really and there isn't as ...

Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

Firstly, the turn out of the station should be themed with a backstory (like Blue Fire), and could warn riders about the Yeti. Then, as the Yeti attacks the guy telling you about him, you launch away to safety= only to be attacked again (motion simulator). The only thing is that it's a very short t...

Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

So the layout is all done (although I've yet to make it as smooth as possible or correct the heart-lining) and I've decided to throw a few pre-fab supports on to see what it looks like. This is what I've got so far... http://i882.photobucket.com/albums/ac30/BigAl1993/NoLimits%20Creations/The%20Yeti/...

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

They also said that when they got to the front of the queue for a ride (not sure which one) their child was refused as he was too short. I saw this happen myself on Kobra to another girl and although it is the parents fault for not reading their map / sign I think it should be made more obvious. I ...

Re: Aesthetically pleasing coasters

I really can't imagine how good it would look with the added rock-work, waterfalls, geysers, themed tunnel and clean, repainted track. Probably stunning! :( Edit: Hydra the Revenge at Dorney Park is a pretty good looking ride... http://dp-201105-www.dorneypark-com.cfpt2.cedarfair.com/_upload/galleri...

Re: Thorpe Park 2015 Coaster

There's nothing wrong with some off-the-shelf coasters though. Especially the highly-rated Intamin megalite. Good off-the-shelf coasters can save a lot of money and offer experiences that are just as good as most custom coaster layouts. If less money is spent on the coaster then that leaves more mon...

I'm glad that Six Flags are giving Iron Wolf (first B&M ever built) a new lease of life as Apocalypse at one of their other parks. I think it looks good! :) Construction video. http://www.coasterfriends.de/forum/attachments/nordamerika-news/58636d1314894458-neu-2012-attraktion-six-flags-america-...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm and General Discussion

Erm... :-s

That has to be a new low? I really don't think a park could sink so low as to get an "escort" in to make people take interest in your ride. It's absolutely pathetic! :|

And to think, I thought we'd seen it all.
