Unnamed B&M Mega Coaster [NL]

Postby PaulMartz37 » Mon Jul 20, 2009 4:01 pm

Just a little track I've been working on. I didnt realize how jerky the transitions on the hills so I hope to fix that. I wanted it to end on a strong note so the helix at the end pulls up to 4.7Gs. ;) I've also been working on a station heavily based on the one for Goliath in Georgia.

Some specs:
243' tall
238' drop
83 mph top speed (you can thank the tunnel for that)
A pretty long underground tunnel

Nice! You should upload the track so we can check it out ;)
That is a sick station :airtime:

Thanks! But Im not uploading it yet. I still have to do all of the supports, fix the grass surrounding the tunnel, and finish the station. I plan to add a lot more detail to it because it seems too flat atm.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Nice work but how did you create a custom station? Just one little detail I'd change though & that's the smaller camelback leading into the helix,I'd simply bring it down to ground level so it looks more fluid but other than that the layout looks great.

^ Using Object Maker. I made one using Google Sketch Up but the shadows were insane and looked pretty bad. It was somewhat easier because I didnt have to scale anything, but Object Maker is pretty easy too.

I've been tweeking the three hills after the tunnel and those pics are a bit old so I'll post some new hill pics soon along with progress on the station. Supports will come last and will probably take the longest.

Done with the station and supports for track near the station.
Some track work still needs to be done but nothing too big.
I'm still loking for a name so any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

Nice work on the station!
I also want to point out that that is one badass looking helix you've got there! :lolr:

It's a pretty intense helix! I tried keep all the forces less than 4.5 throughout the ride so the helix would feel really intense! :mickey:

If only I had the custom scenery used for the station & queue I'd download it when it's ready.

I'm working on my own B&M hyper right now & have everything done except for the supports which are turning out to be a total pain in the a$$....I swear why is there no auto support generator for use with steel supports?

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Because people shouldn't be that lazy.

The coaster is looking great, Paul!
