BGE Roller coaster for Blender 2.66a
Downloadable on Blendswap:
The roller coaster route can easily modified by deformation the curve in Edit Mode.
The wagons of the roller coaster are connected to an Armature , the Armature is moved in the Y direction by an Empty and the bones of the Armature are following the path of the curve.
I set the Inverse Kinematics of the Armature on iTaSC / Simulation, so the roller coaster adapts properly along the route (Object Data / Inverse Kinematics / iTaSC / Simulation)
Here is a short demo video:

This is the first real-time roller coaster for Blender, i think, but I’m not sure, have fun with it 🙂
