View Full Version : LoopyLoop is it basic?

I had an idea of creating a looptyloop in one of my levels but I came upon a problem. Is it possible to make shapes merge into other depths such as a looptyloop and is it possible to use the delete tool to cut part way into a depth?
This could be a partial roadblock into creating levels.

A very interesting point, can you have a ramp or something move between two levels? I don't know. However what you could do is have a sensor switch, so that when you get half way through the loop, it closes one section and opens another so you can do a full loop without crashing.

I was thinking about this recently and since it seems you can't make a structure which crosses the lines of depth, the only way would be to cut it so that you have a semi-circle or horseshoe in mid-air and then a hill underneath it.

So the car would jump of a low ramp and then go around the horse shoe and shoot off the left side of it down a hill which starts directly after the ramp.

It probably would be possible, if you build up the right speed and make the shape of the semi-circle right.

A regular, roller-coaster loopyloop wouldn't be possible as far as I know.

a idea could be a motion sensor for loopy loop so as you spin the motion sensor is attached to the ceiling of the circle so the entrance becomes closed (using dissolve or reappear option) and a quarter circle while it opened on the other side as well thus if you had enough thrust it would seem a loopy loop could be done that way.

If this is somehow confusing sorry it is 5:52am and I came on cause I can't sleep.

Nice idea I think that's how it would work great idea. :idea: Also, you could have a two part car kinda like the Batmobile that turns into the bike. IDK if it would work.
