After designing rollercoasters in NoLimits Rollercoaster Simulator, I decided to take up the challenge and create one in blender. This way I can animate surrounding rides, ride effects and it looks ten times better. After much trial-and-error, I didn’t archieve what I was hoping for. I’m not capable of making the train/wheels follow the track as they should.
The train consists of 6 cars. Every car has his own front axle, and is attached to the front axle of the second car with some kind of universal joint (this principle is used on Vekoma’s MK1212 trains)
I can’t get this to work properly, so what is the best way to animate this?
