Hey guys! I'm back with a new coaster. I didn't really have a feel for my last coaster so here is a new looper. It is inspired by Schwarzkopf's Olympia Looping Coaster. For the loops I may just end up doing the typical box supports since I am not using very many 3ds. In fact, I haven't used any yet. Also, the lift supports are not final, I just want to get a bit of track work done. I will work on them more when I get more built to help with shaking, but I'm fine with it being like this for now.



Comment! Next Update should include a finished crest and at least part of the first drop. Any name suggestions?

I like the supports are you going to keep them like this throughout the whole coaster? Good luck! I know you will make a great coaster! Smile

I'm planning on using these supports for the entire coaster except the loops. The loops will probably receive normal box supports.
I will use Steelspectrum's wing rider spine on this. I expect to have the drop finished at the end of the week. After that I will simultaneously work on the layout and the lift, brake runs, and station. This will be compact, with a mix between Olympia Looping, Alpina Bahn, and the Texas Tornado from SFAW. I was gonna update with the very top of the drop, but, but I have since decided to redo it. Any questions?

Typed on my iTouch.

Update. I decided to just do a hyper layout. However, I am having some trouble thinking of one.

What would you guys think of if I took the crest off, did a launch lift like on the hulk and instead of a zero g roll at the top I did a Stengel dive hill thing and then at the bottom if that drop I I go into a rose bowl like son of beast's rose bowl for a start. I think with these supports it would look pretty sick.

So layout update as well as a small trackwork update.
I've decided to more of a maverick type layout. The layout is:
Station
Transfer Track
Lift
Beyond Vertical Drop
Turn
Stengel Dive
Small Airhill/Corkscrew Section
Turn into Launch
Launch
Double Horseshoe Element w/ Turn like on Maverick:

Another Airhill/Corkscew/Zero G section.
Brakes into Station.

I'm currently working on the crest, which tweaking is not finished yet, but I wanted to see if I'm on the right track.
Basis Picture:


What I've got so far:


Height Picture:


Don't worry, I'll be adding a support brace on the one supporting the drop to make it more realistic.

Just let me know if you think my crest is good so far. This wil be running either 2 or 4 three car trains.
