A Littie More Real

Recommended Posts

I noticed in the cheats that you can make chain lifts on all track pieces.

Wouldn't it be better to develop "Wheel Drives"?

We all know that chains do not go around corners however wheel drives can.

Wheel drives are used on modern coasters.

This is just a thought, I am not a developer, maybe it can't be done.

It would be nice and with adjustable drive speeds, we could make some more exciting coasters.

That's why it's considered a cheat. In most cases, no chain lift is drawn because there's no sprite for it, it just makes the track piece behave as one.

It's straightforward to replace the chain lift sprites with tire drive sprites (the Junior coaster already has tire drive lifts that work this way). But it only makes sense to do this on coasters which only use tire drive lifts, and there aren't many of those. I don't know if it is possible to add a new flag for tire drive lifts before the new save format (but it probably isn't).
