Ahhh I get what you mean, it's a funny thing with launches. I've done a number of roll-back testing on this though, and the dive loop is tall enough so even if it's a weak launch and the train only just makes it, it's able to make the rest of the course. I've got the elevation profile here to show what I mean.

It may be possible to valley, but not managed to achieve that yet.

An easy, rough guide is to check the speed of the ride at the peak of your dive-loop and then see if it drops below that throughout the rest of the ride.

Welcome back on this thread! The ride logo you created, it does sound cool! I would be like "Look up to the sky and you will see the helix above you! The ride is also going around you. Excellent!" if I was really there!

The collab with Reuben's Train would be more fantastic, due to an effective usage of tall trees! :)

Ride the wind & SHOW YOUR MOVES!

Quick preview of the ride here, due to release next month.

EDIT just noticed I labelled first inversion as an immelman but it's a dive loop, oops.

I think my mind might have exploded if you didn't see this. Thank you.

Other than the supercringe the ride looks like a lot of fun!

Will be releasing this ride next week on May 5th 2015.

It's almost ready to go! I've decided against using an area soundtrack. Been back and forth about what to use but tbh I found it a little annoying with Hawk having to turn my music off to prevent it all clashing, and I wanted Kite Flyer to have quite a heavy soundtrack based on music that's inspired me. So what I may do is release a spotify playlist with the ride so you can get the full vibe..if you wish. Although there is some speakers, they won't be playing music.

^^ Still curious what font you are using for a ride logo and a message "GET READY!" They are as cool as your ride is! :)

It looks similar to the font for LiveWire, which is called "Fighting Spirit", not sure if it's exactly the same though :lol:

I used that font for one of my older coasters, a hyper coaster I dropped because I lost the file (I think it was called Cold Front or something?)

Anyway, everything looks authentic and real. I love how you added the B&M LSM's (never thought I'd put B&M and LSM in the same sentence :lol: ). It makes everything look so much better than if you left the regular magnetic brakes.
It's been a long time

I've very fussy with fonts, can spend months trawling through them to get what I had in mind. Kite Flyer's font can be found here if you're interested.

Yeah dafont is great - used to use it when I created 2D games - easier to make yourself stand out!

Looks great, looking forward to the release (tomorrow)?

I got the dates mixed up haha thought today was the 5th, but anyway, IT'S UP! a good few months of trail and error, in newton and with colours and terrain. Again massive thanks to CrazyCoaster for working on this with me. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have creating it, one day I'll make a real life one...
