Building on odd angles

Monday, August 18, 2003 1:11 PM
When I'm building in No Limits, I want to have sections of track that go off at odd angles from the grid that is already set. My problem is that I can't get multiple sections of track to stay in a straight line and it gives the coaster a wobbly feeling to it. If anyone has any help on how I can build the angled sections of track, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Lay down only 1 segment of track, get it straight, and then split it. It doesn't always work perfectly, but does make it easier.

Well if you didn't know, if you click on the blue sphere, you can reposition the track.

Rearrange that and you get...

(I realize that my reply is a bit late, but maybe it will still help somebody)

If you're bulding a complex series of hills at an angle try this instead. Build the hills on the side view.. don't concern yourself with position or layout. Once you're happy with it select all of the track sections then go to the File menu and select Save Element. Delete the sections and readjust the final vertex to the angle you had it set to originally. Then go to File menu and select Insert Element. Locate the file you just saved and click OK.

In otherwords all you're doing is creating a stretch of track, saving it as an element then inserting it at the desired angle.

Hope that helps. :)
