A. Use a smaller scale (perhaps along the lines of 1ft=100ft to make it about 4.5 feet tall, instead of approx 1ft=20ft.
B. Make a life-size model 456 feet tall. :) (...or not?)
Must have had a lotta time on his hands!
Is coastercrazy10 a poster here? If so, he should raise his hand and get some props... :)
Maybe build some ice slides? :)
(For those who don't know, I'm referring to the fictional novel Utopia by Lincoln Child... great read for a coaster/suspense lover)
dannerman, I think there's a huge difference between coaster simulation,--whether in the realm of the computer or model building--and riding something six-thousand times (or whatever the number is).
With coaster simulation, you are always building your skills up to make either your current coaster or the next coaster better. Whether using No Limits (or the like) or building a model coaster, if you've got a rollback, you've got to figure out what went wrong and fix it.
Yes, it is incredibly time consuming, but it's rewarding when your train makes it to the end of the course. To me, riding something thousands of times doesn't teach you anything due to its passive nature.
