Looks excellent, I think we may see another No Limits wave. Thanks for the update.

Looks cool.
What would be cooler is if I didn't have to boot into Windows to run the simulator...

Soggy's avatar I have always been reluctant to use that patch that somone made that "makes" wooden supports. I'll be happy when this comes out. I have a few cool ideas for woodies that I'd like to try on NL. If I have time, that is.

And yes, those trains (especially the Millennium Fliers) look incredible!

Looks excellent. Can't wait.

One question though. On the Gwazi shot, is that one continuous circuit or can we now construct more than one coaster at a time?

Im curious.. While riding phyter, how is your FPS affected?

Yes frame rate is significantly improved over the 'fake woodies' thanks to the standard wooden beams which contain fewer polygons in view, as well as Levels of Detail which remove beams out of view. It cannot be summed up in one example but the difference can be dramatic.


On the Gwazi shot, is that one continuous circuit or can we now construct more than one coaster at a time?

It's one continuous circuit. Gwazi just happens to lend its self to this configuration. Unfortunately real racing and dueling coasters will have to wait for another update.


Eww... Morgan trains?

We knew there'd be a couple of Morgan haters out there. LOL

To be honest the reason these four trains were chosen over.. say.. a vintage Miller or Prior & Church coach is due to the simple fact that the detailed specs and dimensions were readily available. We were also under significant time restraint and each train represents three to four weeks of work. In the future we hope to add many more.

Yeah...All I can say is WOW... I have to admit, the graphics have always been great on NL...now if only the designer was a little easier on the eyes (ala HyperRails)...

Rctycoon2k's avatar Come on, don't torture us! :) Well, I have thought since the begining that they would be worth the wait, but this goes beyond what i thought that they would be like. Keep up the good work. By the way, isn't Suspended coasters next on the roll-call sheet, if I believe right?

Thanks everyone! We know you've been waiting a long time for this update and we hope to make it worth it.

Rctycoon2k, oh yes susspended coasters are most definitely on our list.. but not necessarily next on our list. In fact to tell you the truth I'm not even sure what is next on our list. Still trying to get through this update. :)

DawgByte II's avatar Hey Phyter, I gotta question for you...

This is probably going to be the biggest update... but not the last, right??

How many more updates will you make that will be giving us who own the No Limits sim free access to the upgrades, before you start charging for the next version, like either a "No Limits 2" comes out, or "No Limits v.2.0" where the changes are significant enough to warrent us to fork over more money?

Orrrr... will the upgrades always be free with our paid retail version? ;)

I very much doubt that this will the last update. Each of our team members has his or her own ambitions for the future of NoLimits. Ole Lange (fearless leader) seems as confident and energetic as ever. So I think you can expect a lot more in the future for this sim.

As for the next 'pay for' update I really can't comment on that. My work on this project is strictly vollunteer.

Will there be any pre-made coasters with the update? What are they?

Yes there will be a few premade coasters to demonstrate the capabilities of the wood builder. You'll likely see the ones in the screen shots including the Gwazi recreation.

Now, I remember Ole saying he would be including a suggestion I emailed him about a while back and was wondering...

Are there better looking B&M brakes?

And you say the sound for the woodies are awesome, are the steel coaster sounds still the same?
