Who's got the PC gme Hyper Rails? Whoever does could they please tell how to contruct coaster like "Wicked Twister" in Cedar Point. The one that goes back and forth through the station.
The White node at the back of the station wouldnt do anything i tell it to. I only kno how to make looped tracks.

I tried a few times - as far as I know, coasters with multiple passes through the station are impossible (i.e. - no Impulses, no boomerangs, no Schwartzkopf loops)

Uh, there's an Impulse included with the game.

BTW, has anyone noticed that the HyperRails site does not exist anymore?

But now that you mention it, the site is now mysteriously missing, and I had it saved in my "Favorites" folder... but never noticed until just now.
Then again, they haven't had an update since the first patch. There was optimism at first, but No Limits reigned supreme... and poof!
I really kinda liked this game... especially since you could test the coaster in specific areas between nodes while building it to see if it makes the hill, or takes the turn too sharply, or there's too many G's.

The UI was far superior in terms of testing your ride compared to NoLimits. Support construction was a hell of a lot easier as well.
I think it was just too late. NoLimits had too large of a user base and nearly religious fanboys.

Agreed, Jeff...I just coulnd't get the hang of NL - I still can't but NL _does_ rock in the visual department...no arguing that...

I also noticed that the Hyper Rails website was missing. I did not download either patch and was wondering if there would be a way to download either patch for the game now that the official website for Hyper Rails is no longer working.

The UI for hyper rails is pretty good but the problem is that the game keeps crashing too frequently.
Also there were too many limits on rides...you could only build 6 styles while NL probably has more....with the official site gone I guess a sequel or expansion is definitely out of the question.
To make a WT recreation just take the impulse in the sample park & twist the back tower....I don't know if you can do any mods on pre built rides though because I've never tried it.
