Version 2.2 is on its way.


They've added both variations on the Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster trains, support for DirectX 11, keyframed scene objects and more. Also, FYI, they're still working on the Mac version, they haven't forgotten about it.

EDIT: For those of you who are seeing frame rate drops after updating your game, there's an ongoing thread about it over at the NoLimits Exchange. http://forum.nolimits-exchange.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=4412&page=1

Thanks ride_op!

Yes the update looks great! Is it sad I'm most excited about the new supports featuring "track default" connectors? That is always a pain in the neck

Trains look amazing. Definitely going to be creating some unique coasters from this! Also, does anyone think Gerstlauer pays Nolimits to be sponsored or featured in the game? This will be their 4th train type in the game I believe. If so, I wonder why more manufactures haven't done it too.

Nice! I was hoping that he infinity trains would make an appearance in the game.

We can only hope that RMC will be added at some point. For me it's too tough adding the custom rails, then trying to edit and tweak on top of all that.

^ The No Limits team responded to requests about RMC rails and trains saying that they are "on their list."

Personally this has been the best update yet because it dramatically improved the frame rate for me. I also really like the Infinity trains and am playing around with different layouts.

So far for me it seems the update has slowed down my frame rates! Could just be the park but not sure. The detail on the new trains is awesome and also love the cross ties! I really can't wait till I can figure out how to control the ride from an iPhone.

YAY for a new update!!! Can't wait to play with the new coaster types, and all the other new features!! Looks awesome! The NL team never disappoints!

EDIT: Just updated my game, and went to play it, and OMG... the new update not only makes everything else run really slowly, but my mouse is not actually lining up with what I am trying to select. It is constantly selecting the thing above or below what I am trying to select. Anyone else having this issue??

Love the infinity trains! I made a small Euro-fighter with them and it was fun to make! I'll probably post a photo tomorrow.

Also, I ran the Kings Land park (The one included on the game with Intimidator 305 and Anaconda) and I was getting over 60 FPS (Which is about typical for my computer).

I'm very impressed with this update.

EDIT: Took some screenshots.

My FPS has actually dropped quite a bit with this update... On a few of my tracks, FPS drops down to 30 FPS or so from 60 where it usually sticks at all the time. I rarely ever leave 60 FPS at max settings unless there are 2-3 rides and a lot of 3D trees and such.

Sucks my rig took a hit in performance... And I don't really see any benefit from the update quality/rendering wise.

This update did not really impact my performance at all, so I'm happy with that. If anything it maybe gave it a bit of a boost. Looking at Tango, I'm still getting 30+ fps.

For those reporting frame rate drops after the update, try the instructions listed here to force NL2 back to DX9:

(apologies if linking to another site is frowned upon, on mobile and that's the easiest way to post the instructions)
