Update 2.5.7. released

We just released 2.5.7 with plenty of new features and improvements



Here is the list of the most important news. The full list of changes can be seen inside the program (Main menu -> Info -> What's new).

  • New flat ride Ranger
  • New flat ride Sky Hawk
  • Script Parameters
  • Video file playback on materials
  • Various demo objects that demonstrate the new script parameters:
    • Area Music
    • Onboard Music
    • Video Screen
    • Fire Effect
  • 360° Equirectangular Video Export option with Professional License*
  • New bottom accented spine type on Twisted Coaster styles
  • Manual focus distance option for field of view effect
  • Improved fog effect with dynamic sky

Both new flat rides are recreations of classic fun fair rides. They are highly detailed with realistic sound effects. Also, they can be operated manually. Check out the Doppel Looping park where both rides were installed.
The new Script Parameter feature is a fundamental new option that will improve the usabilty of new scripted objects in the future a lot. They will allow the user to customize settings of the objects through the scene object instance panel, which can then be processed by scripts attached to the object. There are a lot of possibilities.

* The Professional License upgrade can be purchased on our website nolimitscoaster.com

Update 2.5.6. released

We recently brought out v2.5.6 which is a minor update with some internal changes and optimizations.

Users with high resolution displays (Retina/4k) who prefer running the program in Window mode, may try out the new Window Half Resolution option, which is available when a display with a high resolution is detected.

Setup -> Display:

Display Mode: Window
Resolution: Half Window Resolution

This special window mode makes the program render at half resolution which can tremendiously improve framerates, especially on laptops (e.g. MacBooks with Retina displays).

Full change log of update can be seen inside the program (Info -> What's new).

About This Game

NoLimits 2 is the ultimate roller coaster simulation that lets you experience authentic roller coaster thrills. Climb into the world's most famous roller coasters and experience the excitement in real time. Or design a new roller coaster that is engineered to your specifications.

Use a full-featured roller coaster editor with a CAD-style wire-frame display to build a custom coaster. Drag and drop track, supporting structures, and other objects. Use slider bars to change the perspective of the elements being designed, and to zoom in and out. Your only constraints are the laws of physics and your imagination.

After you have designed and constructed your roller coaster, NoLimits 2 serves up a real-time roller coaster experience, from the time the train chugs its way up the first slope, to the time it stops to a stop on the exit platform. The simulation includes the sounds of the wind rushing by, and the metal-on-metal sounds that are integral to enjoying a coaster ride. It's easy to choose any seat on any car in the coaster train. Use the computer's mouse to change the line of sight and angle of vision.

NoLimits 2 is the world's most comprehensive roller coaster simulation, with results so realistic that professional designers like John Wardley use NoLimits 2 to create and test designs for physical roller coasters. Roller coaster manufacturers including Vekoma Rides Manufacturing B.V., The Gravity Group, Inc., Great Coasters International, Inc., Premier, Inc., Maurer Söhne GmbH, Intamin A.G. and others have used NoLimits for purposes including layout, design and integration, visualization and marketing.

NoLimits Roller Coaster Simulation 2 is the ultimate roller coaster simulation, hands down. Don't believe us? Just ask the pros.
