Rollercoaster help ??
show user profile  wedd
Hi i'm University student currently building a rollercoaster in max, ive built the track and assigned the cart to a path constraint around the track.
however i have a loop in the track and when the cart goes up the loop it turns around for a bit and then turns back around again.
i assume this is because the cart is set to follow the path route exactly and that dosnt involve going upside down, so if any one has any ideas on how to get the cart to not do this and complete the loop properly, it would be much appreciated.
thanks
Alex

hey,
I re created a quick scenario similar to yours to see the results. I was noticing the same problem you experiencing and found the solution.
In Path Constraint Path Parameters roll out make sure that:
1. Follow is checked
2. Allow Upside Down is checked

This corrected the problem for me.
Let me know if that works. ----------------------
