Fixing Roller Coaster Downhill Track

I cant post this in the wellington forums

Roller Coaster

I am giving up all my free time this week in the selfless act of fixing up the downhill track Roller Coaster (situated right along side the sanctuary). i dont require any help and i am doing this for my fellow vorbi so i ask that you have a little patience and cooperation :)

At the moment changes are as follows:

At Fox's (Varun's) request i demolished his aged double jump and flattened the ground where it once stood, this allows you to ride a faster and straighter line into the ladder jump that he also built :thumbsup:

i have also fixed up the lop sided lump that used to be the first (big) dirt jump. it now has Retaining walls on the front and also on the right hand side to help it keep its shape, it has been leveled out so its nice and flat (horizontal axis) and is shaped like a perfect ramp with a very small lip at the top :thumbsup: its about 40% loose dirt which i have wet and will be compacting properly tomorrow, so PLEASE dont ride on it till at least wednesday (its the one with a huge log in front of it, it also has an arrow indicating you go around, and a 'W' for wet)... i hit it once before i left as fast as i could and it is F :p :D :satan: ING GOOD

I would REALLY appreciate if people posted comments and criticism here instead of destroying my hard work :thumbsup:

its good how your fixing the track i just dont think you should really be changing it round , i have heard people are trying to get consent to fix the whole track but if you go out and start changing it it might ruin the whole proccess and maybe make alot of people haked , but god on ya for fixin shit up aye just dont build new shit aye cause i think ul fuk it up for everyone. my 2 cents

that would make all the effort tama put into the regional forums completely pointless and a total waste of his time.

You shouldnt have changed any of that

i have never seen you at a LG dig day or makara peak. just leave the fuking track as it was. it was fine.

you probably dont no how to build a jump. You shouldnt fuck with jumps that you didnt build.If you wanted to you could of built some more jumps of to the side of the jumps that were there and just done that instead of demolishing the jumps that people have put effort into.

I was up there on saturday and the track was fine how it was.

Go eat dick because they were cool jumps!

Sizzle, must cos someone digs at LG or Makara doesn't give them the right to dig anywhere. You haven't even seen the jumps yet you are already ripping into him. I haven't seen them either, but he did say he retained the jumps that were there, jumps that were a lil bit fey and not perfect built. Surely this is a good thing, fixing up the jumps so that they last longer. You should reserve judgement until you have seen them, or bit your tongue till your pmt is over
