Okay, just tested it with my laptop. It works there I guess. I can build tacks, although I didnt find out how to actually test them.

A suggestion:

You can make a list of all known events (inputs, camera, game events, etc.) that players can do here (or in the first post of this thread). So, we can be sure to tell what can do what, what does what, and what else we can't do for it to run/work.

I'm sorry, but I can no longer test it out for you. I'm not using my original desktop, but rather an old 2007 laptop and mediocre to lame hardware specs. The perks of moving to a new country.

What exactly are the differences between the first set of tracks and the orange ones?
I mean I can figure out what each one does obviously just by testing it myself ha, but just officially from you, what's the name/labeling difference?

I think I've been thinking this since earlier on but I never remembered to say, but for the first tab of normal tracks, I think the Left + Right track icons could be made more... obvious, and drawn more as a Curve Left / Right instead of the straight Left / Right it is now.

Keep on Coastin'.

Things are making progress but they slowed down. I need to tie up a few loose ends, and start putting on the menu system.

Did you use this? Should be straight forward. http://rollercoaster.dickinsonbros.com/Unity/Index.html?Width=1280&Height=800
Click on the Car Picture and click play at any time.

@thewrongvine
"track icons could be made more... obvious": True I would need to get someone to do this for me and consult out. Not a bad idea. the ones there were part of a set my brother had.

"What exactly are the differences between the first set of tracks and the orange ones? "
I consider the first Tab, Standard, The 2nd one Special. as they do more advanced functions.

@jonas

I dont fully understand. If you mean boosting tracks that been considered, but would be pushed out for now.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
