It's been a while since my last time here, so I apology if a similar topic already exits.
My inquiry here concern the length, direction and radius of a track section and the way it works. It's mostly fine, but just as for the rotation tool where we can choose between relative and world coordinates, I wish we had an option to choose from an alternative building method.
Let me explain that with a quick exemple:
Here is a dark-ride turn with the smallest radius possible. It's a 4m section at 90°.
But what happens if I want to make the overall turn 135°?
Oh noes, it changes the radius! (#overlydramatic)
It's quite a bummer, especially for dark-rides but also for all other kind of tracked rides, including coasters and vertical radii.
In the case above, there are no workaround... It's also quite bothering with rides with super-long sections, such as Steel Hydra and the flume.
What I wish the alternative mode would do:
Instead of length (m) and angle (°), we would have length (m) and radius (m), perhaps with a degree output for clarity.
So if we tweak the lenght of a piece...
... it keeps the same radius!
Basically when you slide your mouse, it extends the portion of circle.
I hope you guys get my point. Thanks for reading!
