Re: how do u make a loop?

I tried to make a loop. Its impossible being how you cannot connect the planes to each other. I tried making a loop were there was a gap that my coaster would jump across to go up and around and than another gap that would shoot thru the first and hopefuly land back on the track...ya thats a mouthful!...it got tooo complicated and I gave up..

You know, I tried to do the same thing in the Beta . . . and was wondering how they would do it.
"I want to fly, into the sky
Turn my back on this whole world and leave it all behind
This place is not my home. It's got nothing for me
Only leaves me with emptiness And tears in my eyes"

I have a theory for a way to do it.

 

Make your loop (ie. Circle) 

 

Setup a sensor maybe half way up the loop so when you pass it,

it sets off a trigger that opens up a hole / cut at the bottom of the loop where you can pass through it.

 

That way it appears to be a loop. 

 

 

That's my idea for the loop.

Easy, very basic but it works, First make a cylinder of whatever material you want it to be, make it to all 3 levels (front middle back). After you make it big,  place it, then slightly make it smaller without moving it, then delete it, now you have a "loop". NOW, delete the bottom left portion of it so the car or whatever can get through, this part gets a little bit tricky. Follow me here, you have to delete the bottom right portion of the loop and replace it with dissolvable material. NOW add a magnetic KEY to the car, ADD a magnetic key SWITCH a little above the Dissovable material, and put a wire from the switch to the dissolvable material. So that when the car passes it dissolves and when you come back around you will go through that empty space.

 

Make sure to glue the loop to the floor and add support to it because it tends to fall sometimes if not made right.

I have one in one of my levels, works GOOD.

nice directions alien. I saw quite a few awesome loops on beta, but could never get it to work right in my own tries.
