We’ve finally launched the NoLimits 2.
We are finishing up all the help files, demo parks, and other things right now. Lots of features mean there is a lot to document and take care of. Kevin meanwhile has created a casual preview video showing the editor in action.
Here is an incomplete list of features you see in the video.
- New logo and start screen
- Speed indicator comb
- Automatic roll feature (to reduce lateral forces)
- Section borders are independent from track vertex data
- Rotation tool
- Depumping tool
- Various terrain editing tools
- New Timberliner coaster style (with permission from The Gravity Group, LLC)
Kevin has created a video showing another example of what is possible with the scripting. He created a scenery object and a script that will attach the scenery object dynamically to the coaster car. The scenery object contains an animated texture effect.
