Has anyone figured out how to evenly space support connections? When using Newton in NL1.X, it was pretty easy because each track segment was the same length (default size was 2 meters.) But now that the track segments are at variable length in NL2, has anyone else found another metric to approximate even spacing of supports?
^ Why not just count "track ties", I used to do that all the time in NL1. The best thing is that they stay the same distance in NL2 on the whole length of the coaster, and not dependant on the length of the track segment.
^ I was thinking of that between the time I submitted my post and when you suggested it, but I was hoping there would be something less painstaking. Have you figured out the amount of track ties per track segment, or does that vary from coaster to coaster?
^ I don't see how counting ties would vary that much from counting segments really? I did some testing on "ties variation" between different coasters and found out that the difference in the editor is not significant, it stays at about 1.25 meters or so between the ties no matter what. But you can easily compare it with the spacing of the grid. So just place a node and then count whatever number of ties you want, place the next one and repeat. Not much harder than that.
You said that you wanted an "approximation" of the distance, and this is the simplest method, which got a lot easier with NL2 since the distance is fixed on the whole length of the ride.
I downloaded the demo but my computer was way to slow for it! I have a really old dell precision so I'm going to wait until Apple comes out with a new MacBook Pro and buy that. Then I will buy No Limits 2 for Mac. Long process but it will be worth the wait.
