I've started working on the first NL2 coaster I'm hoping to upload here. It will be called Who-Dey, named after the Cincinnati Bengals chant and mascot. Here's some screenshots of what I've done so far. Also the ride will be hand built most of the supports will be custom made.

Looks good, but you might wanna change the drop shaping- B&M drops are force-based, and have a long, gradual curve. Use these pictures of Leviathan's first drop for reference!

Also you may want to make the straight section before the lift longer (than the train), otherwise it will be useless as a block. But other than that, looking good so far.

Those pics only remind me of how amazing Leviathan's drop is. Best drop I have ever been on.

Thanks for the pics. This coaster is gonna be much taller the Leviathan (366 ft to 305 ft). Here's what the first drop looks like now.

Also, instead of being an L-shape like Leviathan and Fury 325, Who-Dey will be more V-shape.

I'm going to guess around 350ft. What you have looks good so far.

He said above it was 366, so good guess!

Sorry for a lack of update, I've been busy this past week that I didn't had time to work on the coaster. I menage to get most of the track work done and finish the supports for the lift hill.

I got the first draft of the track done and most of the supports for the first turn around build. Here's a POV video and some pictures. Layout is not final and may go back and change some things.

Looks fairly decent, interesting layout certainly and the supports look good. Need to work on a few of the transitions as they look a bit snappy. Personally I think the first turnaround could do with a bit of reshaping on the entrance so it flows at bit better through there.

Remember you can extend the banking beyond what the game tells you has zero G's so it's less snappy.

^^ Were you just reminding him that we're "allowed" to change the banking to whatever we want beyond what the game calls 0Gs, or were you saying there's a range around whatever the game calls 0 lateral Gs that will still be relatively low? Well I guess the latter is basically going to be true regardless of whether or not that's what you meant, but still, just curious.

I think it overall looks great and the supports look pretty good!
