Hey Guys! I am really wanting any general ideas on how I can improve the site, so please either shoot me a private message or start a thread in the Questions and Suggestions forum. Also, no one has recieved an innovator tag yet, so please, get out there and design your innovations! There is plenty of time to do it over the summer. Summer Heat Guidelines have been posted over at SSC, so check those out. We are slightly modifying how we are doing that over here so go check that out.

TASK Innovations Shuttle Contest
Deadline: April 1st
- Any kind of shuttle coaster.
o Lift or launch, multiple lift/launches are acceptable.
- Be as innovative as you like.
- Can include inversions.
- Can be a recreation; however creativity with that recreation is wanted.
- Can be simple, could be complex.
- Can be a dueler/racer.
o An example is Batman and Robin: The Chiller.
- Custom Trains allowed.
- Can be as big as you want, however non-shaking structures are preferred (very little shaking).
- Any type of supports allowed.
- Your lifts/launches do not have to reset themselves, however they can if you so desire.
- Will be judged based on Your Layout and your Innovations (lift, launch, brake).
o A poll will be posted if I figure out how to do a poll here.
- Deadline can be pushed back if needed.
- Each coaster’s layout should be different of another’s coaster for this contest.
- List of Real Life Examples:
o Vekoma’s Junior Boomerang, Boomerang, Invertigo, or Giant Inverted Boomerang Model.
o Schwarzkopf’s Shuttle Loop Model and it’s Weiner Looping Model
o Arrows Shuttle Loop
o Premier’s Shuttles
o Intamin Shuttles
Participants: What they are building:
1.) SuperTkdkid- Undecided
2.) Dragonwolf
3.)
4.)
5.)
6.)
7.)
8.)
9.)
10.)

Be Innovative! NXT Automation is allowed. If you have any questions, please ask away!
Remember, Custom Layouts can be better as most shuttles have been recreated. If you are going to recreate one just get creative.
If people are willing to enter I am willing to extend the contest. I decided to have this now so it will not interfere with Summer Heat.

Everyone who enters a coaster will receive a 100 point boost in their point amount.
First place will get 500 Points (including the 100 point boost).
Second Place will get 400 Points (including the 100 point boost).
Third Place will get 300 points (including the 100 point boost.

I would like at least 5 people to enter.

How would a shuttle coaster look? Could a eurofighter possibly work?

A shuttle is not a full circuit. A shuttle is where the train goes both forwards and backwards on the same track. A Boomerang Coaster is a good example.

Alright, sounds good.
I am still deciding if I am going to enter one or not. I am willing to extend this out until Summer Heat if you guys would like that.
