A color I would say is just about correct is:
R 178
G 124
B 103

Sorry if that causes you inconvenience in recoloring everything, but it's a major thing that should be addressed in order for it to be accurate. Keep up the good work! :D
I'm not brand new to NL2 so ignore how many posts I have atm, I post a lot other places :)

Alright, I once again got a good picture of the ride and picked the color from it and then got the closest Pantone color I could find. I noticed what the problem was, I'm using a laptop with an extra screen attached and the color vibrance is much dimmer on my laptop. So what looks right on my laptop is really over-saturated on the other screen..

Here's a comparison of how the new color looks like compared with the real thing:

This looks amazing, I can't wait to try it when you get finished. I actually live right next to Dollywood so this is exciting to see a hometown coaster on NL2.

Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments!

I'm still working on the station and I redid most of the trackwork so I thought I'd post another video. Like I've said in the beginning of this thread, I haven't ridden this ride in real life so everything is based on video and photo reference. Any remarks on the trackwork are very welcome.

Here's the vid:

Hey guys, I'm happy to announce that this project is finally reaching completion. I'm happy with the trackwork and all that is left now is some of the support work. I'm hoping to release somewhere within the next 2 weeks. Here's a final screenshot:

^ Just downloaded it and it is very good! :) Will you be doing recreations of Dollywood's other coasters?

GREAT recreation! However, what's the password to extract the package? Or could you PLEASE make it so the package/file isn't locked?

@Skyscraper, probably not. A lot more effort went into this than I had expected and I want to focus more on original and less time consuming projects.

@Riley Meyers, No. You can ride and view without the password. The reason I have it there is because I put a lot of effort in creating the models and textures and I don't want other people just tinkering with them.

Hey guys, I've started up a new project, a Vekoma MK1101 style one. The concept for this is to create a modern layout like Lech Coaster but throw in a bunch of reference elements to classic rides like Drachen Fire, Goudurix and Moonsault Scramble.

Here's a video:



and some screenshots:

It's my first kinda succesful attempt at creating a coaster in FVD++. It's a great tool, but I find it very difficult to get the rolls the way i want them xD.

Also I'm using the rocket coaster track for now but I will see if I can replace it with actual Vekoma track.

Hopefully we'll get the new vekoma track in the next update! Looks very akin to new Vekoma though, like the take on the gouldrix element! The turn into the brakes feels a little awkward though, like you've approached it from the wrong angle!

Here's a small update, I had to correct some of the trackwork because the rolls were too tight for the train:

Looks fantastic! Are the clearances okay on that turn out of the station in relation to the nearby track?

I double checked but everything stays outside the clearance envelope.

I started work on the station, never mind the colors, but before I continue I want to know if this isn't overdone. I want to keep it realistic:

Been working on the station a bit more. I'm still struggling to come up with a convincing backstory for this ride though.
