I have looked the coaster selled with no limit and they are "real". But when i do a coaster, it doesn't look real because each vertex is "visible" in the simulation. It isn't smooth. How to do smooth turn, or smooth lift easly? I work on each vertex about 10 min and it doesn't look real.[:(]

Thx

well, first of all, if you can't make a smooth lift, i really don't know what to say...but smoothening vertices comes over time and practice, and if you use "con roll" it usually helps, too.

yeah, smoothing takes soo long to do but you cant build a wicked coaster all in one day it takes time so dont get frustrated and take it easy.

a few days!? LOL!!!!!!! Woodies usually take me around 2 weeks for a good one since you don't have to do the supports, and steelies around 2 months for a really good one.

Workin w/ NL has been easy cuz I've worked w/ that bezier pen tool in Photoshop and Illustrator. Wait...was it the other way around? Well, If you're familiar w/ those graphix programs, it may help making the curves

what?! 2 months ?! my god! i pop out a new coaster every 2 hours! i think they're pretty good too. i just uploaded one (thunderbolt) today. it took me about an hour and a half to make. i think its good, but i'd like some reviews. but still, 2 months! god! thats nearly as long as it takes for the real thing!

BTW You could use the track smoother made by Buster which you could get.
