Turbo, I would say, make a TTD based ride with the multi-load and multi-exit stations.
There was a twitter post that said how to do this to get 2 trains to go through the stations like TTD.

Want a double station like Maverick? Place 2 station segments in line & increase Passes count to 1. Easy!

EDIT: I 3rd the Inversion tutorial also.

I would really like to see a tutorial covering inversions myself.

I found a tutorial on YouTube, I meant to link it. Anyway, what I have discovered based on watching the tutorial and playing with the editor is you have to build the track, then the order you set the roll points is very important. Add a roll point at the entrance of the element, then the midpoint, and finally another roll point at the exit of the element. This is what worked for at least dive lopps/immelmans and corks(flatspins). After you set the roll points its basically a matter of adjusting the roll values to fix any g spikes that may occur. If anyone has any other methods or tips they would be greatly appreciated.

I found the link: at about the 14 minute mark is a dive loop tutorial.

If anyone wants to record how to make basic elements and wants me to commentate over it explaining how to make them and/or just make a video about it let me know, I can't build inversions to save my life

Just wondering if the NL2 tutorial can also be a good help for original NL users. I'll check out these videos too. Telling it's time for fun tips. :)

Eh not really, yes the building in similar, but there are so many new menus and features that it wouldn't be a "ton" of help to original NL users.

The Vertex tool alone is not at all similar to NL1. Plus features that are available in NL1 aren't available in NL2, most notably, CTRL+G(auto-smooth)

Can someone do a tutorial on how do you get a 3ds Ferris wheel car to follow one roller coaster car on a huge vertical wheel with invisible track? Can you make the roller coaster car invisible? Can you run the coaster car while it is hidden by having no trains on the track for the 3ds Ferris wheel car to follow?

If anyone wants I could probably throw together an inversion video, although I don't necessarily think I'm the best for the job. I would be pretty comfortable doing a video on vertical loops, immelmans, zero-Gs and corkscrews using the in-game FVD if anyone would find that useful. (Side note, I've heard a lot of complaints about the in-game FVD but I've actually been using it to great effect.)

Quick little update: I uploaded another tutorial showing how to make support scenery and complex hand-built track elements. I added the tutorial to the list at the top for anyone who is curious.

Just a reminder to all that anyone can make requests for tutorials and you can even make them and submit them!

Hey guys, I just updated the forum top with a tutorial from youtube's TheCodeMaster. This tutorial features basic scripting knowledge and can be useful to those who are just beginning! It would be nice to have him on the site to talk about it and explain to those who have questions but unfortunately to my knowledge he is not. Hope this helps!

Hey Turbo! I have linked your tutorials in another forum. Just wanted to know if you are okay with it. If you aren't, tell me and I will remove the links. Thanks, and great work on those tutorials.
