Fun fun... see how long you can make a ride that "loops" before it fails. I used 91 lines (most of them long) and made it loop for 18 mins before he crashed and died :whistling:

Yes, it's quite tricky... on my loop he goes faster each time causing him to die on loop 11 :whistling:

figured out that you have to put gaps in the track...i could have sworn i got a loop without a gap...but i didnt'...also wish there were a way to make him go the other way hehe...i tried doing a spiral....but that was insane...he'd crush himself on the third loop

it's addictive is what it is! and complex physics in it

i had a track that was awesome...had over 1000 lines...i went back and shortened one line in the track...and it ruined the whole rest of the track because his speed changed through that one section...i was so angry

1000 lines? You don't use the straight line option, do you? :whistling: His speed is annoying to control... I had one part where he would fly backwards almost completely horizontally for two minutes.

no...i don't use the straight line...because when you've got to delete a part of a line to make something work...it will delete the whole line (like my 1000 line track that i screwed up) and screw with all the timings in that section...if you just do it in small lines with the pencil..you can easily delete lines without causing too many problems...i wish you could drag lines that you've drawn...that would be nice..

i like getting alot of hang time...like having the guy speed along a track that swoops up at the end...then putting a line right at the top of his trajectory so that it catches him right as he begins to fall.....i also like having him flip off the end of a line and catching him down at the bottom of the flip
