-two different sides of one coaster

-a large circle turn-around (last picture)
-command block extras such as weather or adding a blinding effect
-your choice to ride in the day time, or night (light looks much more amazing)
-many unique turns and curves

So far, this is my third big minecraft roller coaster and I'm very happy to have entered it into this contest!! I really hope you enjoy this because it truly did take a while to build it since I was implementing so many new ideas and designs. I'm open to suggestions about possible fixes, so please let me know if you have any :)

Just to make sure, this rollercoaster has two different sets of tracks: one blue and white for the start, then one red for the storm. This is ONE rollercoaster ride



Ride Details

Length of ride- 3:02
Height- 71 meters
Theme: the approaching storm

A BIG thanks to VeseliD for making the video!

Additional Notes

I'd like to take this time to thank y'all for getting me to 300 subs :'D

(pat yourself on the back)

I really do appreciate your support and camaraderie. If I didn't have y'all with me, it would be really hard to muscle through a tough project :)



Please don't use my ideas without permission, I worked very hard to come up with these unique ideas (;

Keep Crafting,
-HJ

This deserves better. Seriously, you deserve better! You deserve at least one pixel art trophy that isn't participation/finalist! You always make it to the finalists but you never get 1st, 2nd or 3rd, even though it's waaaay better (in my opinion) than the others!

Thank you for saying that, you just made my day man :)

In my opinion, this contest was pretty dumb; not organized well, judges took days (some weeks) to get on, and it was pretty silly to begin with. Thank you so much!

(sorry I took so long getting back to you)

I think how they judged was complete bull. All the winning coasters, won because of the decoration they put into it. The coasters themselves weren't actually that good. You should have come in a higher place

I appreciate that man :), but this contest was kind of a blow. Anyway, I know this coaster isn't my best because I built it two months ago, and I had time to make an even better ride before the judges were done judging the contest (which strangely took one month). I'm glad that you see it that way tho, thanks man :)

Yeah, tell me about it. Best solution I could come up with was a sort of corkscrew-up and then a ride down.

You know what would make these submissions really shine? Someone using command blocks to add and remove potion effects like blindness and nausea to certain segments, and maybe some work with spawners to shoot fireworks in front of the player as they approach a big drop, or spawn bats in caves or something.
  • hobo joe
  • Level 62
  • High Grandmaster Musician
  • October 12, 2013, 8:15 am
No way, I've done a few of those xD

I love the idea of command blocks because I turn the weather on or off in the ride without stopping. I'm trying to find a way to have lighting strike at perfect points in the ride to make it more like "the storm" that's happening

Much appreciated, thanks!!

I figured out that rollercoasters are so fun to build because it requires you to think of things that haven't been thought of, and it's great building something that a lot of people will enjoy :)

You are a winner, i am a loser, my thing is puny, your thing is awesome, how did you make the loop? why couldn't i think of something that stupendously awesome? the answer to the second question is this: i'm not awesome, you are!

Diamond, favorite, sub.

P.S. I am not really to disappointed, i just wish i could have built something that awesome for the contest.

Thank you man, it means a lot to me that you'd say that, but you're not a loser. I've made a couple of coasters, of course I have some crazy ideas. The thing you can do is to just keep trying out new crazy ideas untill something hits right.

Think different, it's ok to be that square peg in the round hole :)
