Fans of NoLimits, a popular roller coaster simulation program, have waited eagerly for screenshots of rumored shuttle coasters coming for 1.4, and finally some preview screens have been released on the official developer's website.

I love the fact that we finally get shuttles, but the coin op coaster is really weird. I can't see myself using that to much.

Interesting, if not unimpressive.
I like the idea behind it & all, but it looks only fair & not as big of a change as the 1.3 update, with the wooden coasters. I guess that's because the Butterfly Coaster in & of itself is a dull looking coaster. I did notice a new support addition feature in the buttons on the last screen shot.
I am definately looking forward to this update, as we can finally create boomerang-type coasters (I hope), as well as version of the impulse. Although I'm kind of betting that the Hyper-Rails sound effect used for the take-off (taken from Wicked Twister) won't be used in No Limits.
Oh well... quality over quantity.

Regarding the butterfly coaster... the screens were posted April 1st. Just a thought.

Ok, I say we have a contest to see who can make the most evil coin op coaster! I'm psyched about the ability to make shuttles but what I really want are a few more trains like a Schwartzkopf Speed Racer or a NAD train or a Suspended Coaster.

There is no new support feature, thats to add track going backwards out the station, the track with the pink arrow button is what I think you are talking about. It will have to be used to make track behind the station on the shuttles.

"The real update does not include the coin-op coaster. It's merely a 3DS object. So what's real in those screen shots? You'll just have to wait and see. We'll have some screen shots of the real update sometime early next week."
