MISSING A TEXTURE? If you downloaded within the first hour, a texture was missing. So if the fence is plain white - download the pack again.

This is BT Paths v2.
It lets you build pathways quickly and intuitively -
without having to jump back and forth between NoLimits and 3rd party 3D software.
It's also easier and it makes more sense for larger projects - like parks.
You move things around and see the effects directly, and you can do it all simultaneously as terrain and scenery.

I've worked way more with this pack than I first set out,
and it really did turn out more complex than I first thought.
Right now there are 55 objects in two main categories:
A - Asphalt, No fence
B - Asphalt, Steel pipe fence

I really hope people find use for it!

What's that light blue track over there? I'm curious because it fits into this well-built zone. :)

This is getting close to finished, so I thought I'd give it a thread.
I'm debating myself whether or not to add 22,5 degree angle pieces.
It would remove basically any visible clues to the fact that the pack is grid-based.
But on the other hand, it'd mean way more pieces, and the pack is already 35 pieces heavy.
It might just end up being a pain to use, so perhaps it's better as a future, separate extension pack?
I'd love for some input on that.

Yea I would definitely leave it as a future expansion pack. It will be a nice update to the original!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments both of you.

Well, the coaster is basically just scenery.
It's awfully built and what you see in the screens is all there is of it. ;)

That's phenomenal. Would definitely help out a ton because I suck at building paths.

Thanks for the feedback all of you!
I mustered through the last of it yesterday, so the thing is finally finished.

The first comment is updated with all the info and links.

would you terribly mind If I made a second link for this in the Seeds thread? it would provide another permanent link (and the thread is a sticky, so it's always on the front page of the NL2 forum). As you update your paths (if you plan on doing another version) I'd keep the other thread up to date with whatever you add. It'd really be appreciated, thank you.

Are you linking it, or are you uploading it to your servers? (My old NL1 Rock Pack was uploaded.)
Either way is fine with me, as long as I can keep track of statistics.
Mostly I'm curios to see how many times it gets downloaded.

EDIT: Also, updated the download, there was a texture missing in the .zip file.

Yes put the paths folder in the same folder as where your nolimits track is. Like I just said. Then load the paths from that location.

Hover over "open recent" in the no limits editor and it will tell you the path of your recent parks.
