Force Vector Designer
The Force Vector Designer window allows advanced users to create track elements based on applying forces over a set period of time. Force vectors shape the track by defining forces for set durations of time that bend the track in various directions.
The Force Vector Designer can be opened when an end vertex (plug) is selected inside the editor. The Force Vector Designer will follow the track of the selected vertex.
There are 3 graphs for editing the vertical forces, the horizontal forces and the roll. Right click with the mouse to create and delete points in each graph. Move points by selecting them and dragging them with the mouse.
Select between Relative Roll and Absolute Roll.
Enter the total time in seconds of the element here.
Select to simulate a constant speed (usefull for powered coasters)
Enter the starting speed of the element.
The simulated end speed (read only) of the element at the end (t = Total Time)
The t value at the selected point.
The force or roll value at the selected point.
Clears all points in all 3 graphs.
