I'm interested to know if the most recent update included changes to the physics (train weights or friction or something), because I just re-rode my coaster and the trains aren't anything like as synchronised as they were when I made and tested the track... :?
The final competition is done, and it was...interesting.
There was a lot of feedback for this comp, and I feel it was too ambitious now after seeing the results/number of entries.The time was too long (in part to me being out of the country for so long) and we really lacked a good number of coasters. But, we had four entries so let's see how they stacked!
4. Hixee- Lakeside Twister 24.33 points
Shocked that a Hixee coaster got last place, but it felt off. The banking was quite odd in places, there were pumps and some odd transitions. Fun coaster, but not the best.
3. Jay Lumberjack Fued 27.5 points
Why was the right side lift banked? This ride was very mellow, which hurt your ranking, it didn't "do much" really but it was your best build by far of all the comps. Smooth, just lacked any defining moment, I did like the fly by.
2. Tomahawk Normandy 34.83 points
There will be a version 2 of this, I got too ambitious with the scenery work at the cost of the coaster. The ending died, transitions were a bit too tight in some places, but expect a full experience with V2. The name will be much more fitting at that time.
1. Antinossi Fission and Fusion 37.67 points
Truly the best coaster of the comp by a landslide, despite the points in my opinion. It captured a true GCI feel and was fantastic. A few lateral spikes in some of the ground hugging elements, but it was great.
So that wraps the year up! We will pick the comps back up in 2016, not sure the exact time frame yet, but plan on some new challenges. Great job everyone!
That's twice now that I have had the track randomly bank when I converted it to a package. I wanted to build two tracks for this comp, one with an out-and-back feel to it (like I submitted) and one more twisty. Worked a lot of overtime and couldn't pull of the other.
