    Custom Coaster Trains

    Now that frontier has updated the game we can now mix and match tracks/cars and create semi realistic coasters using the in game tracks/cars. Since the update I've been thinking of how to mix these cars to make other real life coasters which I thought I would share so that everyone can use these. Just a slight disclaimer a few of car/track combos use the Barghest (Euro fighter) track which does not contain a normal lift hill, please fix frontier , and so the solution to making a lift hill is to launch the car up hill at a 30 degree angle. If the launch speed is set low enough it will create the effect of a controlled but fast ish lift hill.

    Mack Big Dipper
    This ride type currently only has one installation and that is Lost Gravity at Walibi Holland. This coaster type is made by combining the Barghest (Euro fighter) track with the Tiamat trains.




    Intamin Multi Inversion Coaster
    This ride type has been installed at numerous locations around the world and usually features 10 inversions. Some real life examples of this coaster are Colossus at Thorpe Park and Altair at Cinecittā World. This coaster type is made by combining the Barghest (Euro fighter) track with the Invincible trains.




    Intamin Blitz Coaster
    This coaster is the new type of intamin launch coaster. The real life examples are Taron at Phantasialand and Maverick at Cedar Point. The coaster type is made up of the Barghest (Euro fighter) track with the sprint 500 trains. To make the trains look more generic, use the Invincible or Zenith trains however I do not have a picture of these trains on the track.



    Vekoma Family Invert
    This track is made up of the Steel Hydra track and the Boa trains. To ensure that this is easier to build I would recommend turning off the track limits in the options as the steel hydra track has very long pieces. Real life examples of this coaster are Freedom Flyer at Funspot America or Flight of the Pterosaur at Paultons Park.





    Vekoma Mine Train
    This track type is already in the game however it looks like a train track. Many Vekoma Mine Trains do not have this and in fact have a 3 tube steel track. Real life examples include Mammut at Gardaland and Iron Horse at the now defunct Freestyle Music Park. The coaster type is made by combining the Degen track with the Canyon Runner trains.


    B&M Sitdown Coaster
    This coaster type is made by combining the Werewolf track with the Rage trains. These coasters can be found around the world but a good example of this coaster is Kumba at Busch Gardens Tampa.



    S&S Launch Coaster
    This track is made using the Rage trains and the power up track. Real life examples of this coaster would include The Bullet Coaster at Happy Valley Shenzhen or Extreme Rusher at Happy Valley. I first saw this idea by Flaero on you tube so credit goes to him. His channel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjL...aaI-kmrUdldAMg This does come with a little disclaimer though, due to the fact that this track officially should be used for sky loop "shuttle coasters" the track can only run one train. This prevents this track from becoming more durable in its nature and can become a little frustrating when using this track for other purposes however this could work for a smaller park which wouldn't attract as many guests/has a peep limit.

    Colorado Adventure at Phantasialand has a track with wooden pieces like the ingame mine train

    My apologies I have updated the post with another example. I also have another track type that I need to get pictures of to update the thread so look out for that in the next few days

    Thanks for all these! The train-swapping option really opened the game up to some much needed realism. Even if we still canīt build some prominent rides with all the right features (2-2 trains with lift hill).
    I used this to create some rather nice Schwarzkopf inspired transportable coasters:
    A fairly accurate version of the first mobile Looping Coaster "Looping Star":

    My attempt to recreate his transportable Double Loop/Colossus/Lazer made me get creative half-way through and I made a lovely quatro looper, that might have become reality if Schwarzkopf would have continued building rides.

    You're welcome and I had all of these ideas about combining trains/tracks to expand the games library so I thought I would share them to hopefully give a few people some different ideas. I've also updated the thread with a new track/car combination to make an S&S launch coaster. As for the Schwarzkopf's they look very good, and its a shame we don't have the Schwarzkopf track in the game itself but hopefully as the game continues to be developed we will see more coasters implemented into the game as it's something that I personally feel is lacking. One suggestion that you might like to use is to make the loop support using the in game art pieces.

    How do you get the different coaster trains on the different tracks.

    Hi, I've been playing planet coaster for a while now but can't figure out how to do this "mod".. Can you please tell me as soon as you can. Thank you.

    Never mind, i just found out how to in the settings and then press game, then press allow interchangeable coasters.

    Well just go to the customize section of the coaster (it is the one where you change color of the track and the trains) there is a new drop down thing where you can choose the train you want
