I am looking to purchase a good quality roller coaster program. Any price range will do. And I don't want roller coaster tycoon programs!!!

Well, Ultra Coaster 3D is decent, only 20 bucks. In the fall, there is a new game coming out called No Limits. I think the website is www.nolimitscoaster.de But those are still*games*. I guess you could go to Danimation and ask about 3D Stusdio Max, but that software is hardcore.

Ultra Coaster 3D is dumb and horrible.

There are about 3 others on the market that really can stench up the niche market of coaster/amusement park designing.

Sim Theme Park/Sim Coaster are more of Amusement Park management.

If you want a quality rollercoaster designing game, then you got to go out and get a Dreamcast.

on 04-17-01, Coaster Works is released. It retails for $39.95 and is a pretty decent coaster designing game. It allows for quite a bit of freedom, but the graphics are not 100% Dreamcast quality. It's strictly for coaster building & riding...
Check out the review of the game here:

If you want something even better... search on-line and import the game "Jet Coaster Dream 2" for the Sega Dreamcast. Basically, it is the Japanese sequal for Coaster Works, but is much, much better. There are more coasters, more designs, and you can put up flat rides as well!
Check out the review for the game here:

It'll be an eternity before No Limits is completed, so I wouldn't hold your breath. Until then... stick with Sega if you are a complete fanatic!

Man, I tell you. I am dying for that no limits to come out! Being able to make a 3D coaster that looks as good as that 3D of Mantis, etc. will be unreal!

If you want, you can also make your own!

Sure, it may set you back about 3000 to 4000 dollars, but if you say money is no problem, then there is:
The latest AutoCad program
or
3D Studio Max

(these are graphic programs, but it's what the best of the best make their games/simulations/models out of!)

I just went to Best Buy last week, and bought a game called "3D Rollercoaster Designer". It is made by Pantera Entertainment. It looks really cool. It is along the lines of UC3D, but you can build woodies, inverts, flying, etc... I must be nuts, because I still haven't played it yet, but if you want a general overview of the game, go to ... http://www.3dgamearena.com/

Okay come on people, Ultra Coaster is not that bad. Its worth 20 bones. You can actually make a good coaster with practice. Its down fall is bending the track. It has set bends.

3D Roller Coaster Designer I hear is a bad game. The worse one out there. DON'T BUY IT

Did you know you can actually ride your RCT coasters with Ultra Coaster 3D. If you go here:

I know you didn't want RCT stuff, but this is much differant.

He meant Coaster Works for the Sega Dreamcast...

Jet Coaster Dream is the Japanese name of the same game...

He probably just got the names confused and mixed, but the game is Coaster Works, and it should be out on April 17th!

Whatever Badnitrus uses must be a pretty good program. His models and videos are great. It's probably already been mentioned (3D Studio Max, maybe?).
