^ When I first got NL2 I was completely lost. I had no idea how to do anything... So I YouTubed it!! I learned a lot about how to actually use the game from YouTube.

Thanks! I will be up all night learning now. Quick question . . . can you have reverse sections on the track, backwards sections, using switch backs? Or is that just for entering and exiting the station?

Yes, you can have reverse sections on the track, but it takes some scripting. It took me forever to figure out how to do it. However, there is a simple to use Script Generator available here: http://forum.nolimits-exchange.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=3345

That might help you out! Be sure to read the "How to" section on how to use it correctly. Good luck!!

Hello All!
I am having a serious technical issue with my NL2-Professional and seek some tech support. I have already emailed the NL2 team and we are having a challenge finding a solution.
I currently have Nl2-Professional edition.
I have never had any issues with the program until I installed the latest update-2.2.3.2

*System has been scanned for any virus and ALL device drivers and graphics cards up-to-date.....no other hardware issues detected-all performing well.

Processor: Intel Core i5-650 3.2 GHz
> Ram: 4 GB 64Bit OS (Windows 7)
> Graphics card: ATI Radeon 5450.
> No Limits2-Professional Edition
> **Before the download of the most current/recent NL2 software update I
> have *never* had any issues with the game whatsoever. *Latest download
> version: 2.2.3.2*
> Since the latest update install (I uploaded and installed it 2 times in
> the event something may have not loaded previous update), I can use the
> game in editor mode, but it is only in the /*'PLAY" mode that the game
> freeze*/s....it ranges between 6-10 seconds.
I tried other saved coaster
> designs as well and now all of the saved coaster files freeze in PLAY
> mode (no matter what view I am using).

Any tech tips/suggestions to resolve this?
thank-you!!!

Can someone tell me how to make a sloped roof with angles (made from supports)? I have a shape to my queue building, but I just need to make the actual roof cover :P

My first coaster ever is frickin amazing, if I do say so myself!
I think it should be named something classic coaster inspired, like "Eagle Fury" or "Comet". Tell me what you think, or if you have a better one (you still have time while I work out the details before the specific theming)

Anybody have any good tips on how to make flags? I'm currently in the process of recreating The Legend Reborn at Holiday World with all the modifications GCI is making to the track (the double down and the banking being added to the last 4 turns) and I wanted to put the flags on top of the lift. I really have no experience with 3d modeling, so any tips would be helpful.

No Limits 2 in the rain

Postby Henry M » Thu May 05, 2016 11:16 am

I was running No Limits 2 in the rain on some coasters, and the coasters seemed to run faster, like they do in real life in the rain. Does anyone know if the weather conditions affect the way the coasters run?

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

Yes. Some run faster when wet because they have less friction between the wheels and the track. They may also move faster because friction and skid brakes are less effective when wet.
