    So been working on this for what feels like years. Quite frankly the hardest track work to get right, but I'm determined to make one of these (on the way to getting a full set of B&Ms made ;) ). This is mainly to start of showing the ride as it's one I want to see to completion. In these screens I've shown bit of layout and some track work. Also the ride's logo (still rough draft, I may change it a bit). I'm struggling to finalise the last half though to stay true to B&M yet bit of a twist to suggestions are welcome. Watch this space.

    Looks really nice so far! I look forward to seeing what you do with the second half.

    Nice idea to try do one of all of the B&Ms, which ones are you still left to do? I've always liked the idea of doing one of every coaster type, but just... no... :lol:

    So I've done a layout I like! Finally, it may look simple but I like the way it rides and it feels like a complete package.

    And here's a view from the brake run of the zero-g.

    I'm just learning Sketchup ATM, have been for a while =/ so bare with as what i want to create may take some time, but i've started building a station building, it'll almost be Smiler inspired but bit prettier I hope with clean lines and industrial spacey stuff.

    That brake run is just amazing. <3

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with the station/theming.

    Some painstaking fence work here, but it's slowly getting there. Excited to put a few ideas together.

    So been working around the first section of queue and a new lighting feature, gonna play around with it still, it may be simple, but hey I think I like it.

    I love that near-miss!

    The coaster looks really good so far! Keep it up!

    Also, Neon lights will have to do. No natural light or light bulbs. Only neon lights for future stuff.

    Started supporting the lift hill, quite hard with clearances but it's all good now. Decided I didn't like the arty boxy tunnel thing, so ditched it.

    Here's an overview of the ride as it stands atm, still working on some fiddley bits around the queue line. Few points to point out here, the priority/disabled entrances to the left of the building, and been playing around with tie-spacing, it may be subtle but it makes me happy =)

    Here's a view of the zero-g and disabled access.

    This screenshot is fantastic. Probably one of the best NL2 screenshots I've ever seen. Brilliant!

    I think you might be right... :lol: Hopefully it's enough motivation to keep posting though - I appreciate the effort!

    Nice, I look forward to exploring it myself.

    Welcome to ISON

    Background

    Feel the force of gravity as it plummets you to the ground in a 90 degree drop straight down and harness it's power as you swoop, dive and orbit through space. Named after the famous comet discovered in 2012, it's your mission to follow it's path in an experience you'll never forget.

    Design

    This B&M Dive Coaster is inspired by all the large scale models, including Griffon, SheiKra and Valravn. I've aimed to stay true to B&Ms style of layout design and shaping but with a slightly extended length. The theme and building was inspired by many space voyage films I've seen recently, with the main building taking notes from NASA's VAB.

    Elements

    Acsent (lift hill)
    Top Corner
    Hold Brake
    Vertical Drop
    Immelman
    Orbit Turn
    Dive Loop
    MCBR
    Second Dive (return mission)
    Overbank
    Zero-G Roll
    Final Bend
    Brakes

    Notes:
    Technically this is designed to have the new style 8-Seat Trains.

    May I suggest back row left seat ;) I do advise walking through the queue for the full ride experience.

    Massive Thank you to the following for helping me out and testing, Dave Ainsworth (for all the audio, scripts, testing and advice, this ride wouldn’t exist without you), Andre Northan (Sketchup Guru), Matt King (tester guy and general support). The Flux Rockpack and nSeven’s trees.


    Enjoy!
