An RMC hybrid coaster I made today

Recommended Posts

I suppose this layout might work better as a traditional wooden coaster than an RMC, but I set out to make an RMC so I ended up with this. I still think it's better than my previous attempts.

Wow, I'm impressed! I love the vertical drop and that typical banked hill.

Are the grey parts part of the track sprites now? 

Too bad there's no inversions, but I guess that will be a headache for another time :P

The grey ties are part of the track sprites. However, they're currently much narrower than the supports they're supposed to connect with, and they don't line up with the bents (and can't easily be made to). One option is to integrate part of the support structure into the track sprite, but I don't know if that would look much better. Making custom support sprites, is technically possible, but I don't want to have to do that. It's a real difficulty with the IBox track that the Intamin doesn't have.

And are those diagonal brakes i see too?

No, they're not diagonal brakes. It is diagonal track with lift chain, which looks a bit like brakes but doesn't slow the train. You can make the train slow down with a shoestring, but it's just more effort than it's worth to do that just for brakes, so I left them non-functional.

Where did you manage to get that track type?

It's rendered from a 3D model using a program I wrote.

Looks convincing enough though.  Good job on those renderings, very impressive work!

RMCs should be capable to have loops, corkscrews, overbanked turns, and barrelrolls.  These elements are also on GCI models.

No RMC currently has a loop, and the game doesn't have overbanked turns so those aren't an option. Only corkscrews and barrel rolls are conspicuously absent, but I don't have those pieces on the RMC track yet so I had to do a layout without them. There are two RMCs without inversions so it's not that unrealistic.

Hello again, X7123M3-256!

RMC style inversion track sections should get made, and admended onto G2.DAT.  I'll take a look at my copy of the ORCT2 New Track Sections file to see what we'd need...

Thank You!

Even then, it would need to be included in OpenRCT2 source files. And that's something the devs don't want to do yet for several reasons.

The plan is to add all the relevant track pieces. Loops, half loops, large half loops, corkscrews, barrel rolls, quarter loops, and large steep-to-flat are still to go in. S-bends and helices were added since this post was made. But I'm not working on it right now, I don't have much time available and it's not really worth it for something most people won't want. I'll revisit it when there's a new save format.

Wait, what file is this?

That's exactly what I did. This is a fork of the game, not develop.
