"EASY" Sloped Terrain Path Creation...

I haven't seen this suggested...

Make your sloping (temporary) curved path. Or straight, but curvy looks nicer [noob].
Consider the path is higher than the end result will be, so I consider this a first step of planning out your ride/feature.

Use path that is a few meters wider than what you want. I'm not sure this matters, but I think it makes thing easier.

After you created your sloping curvey path, raise the terrain under it fully.

Now delete your path. All of it.

Notice you are left with some really cool earthen stairs, which might be really cool on the side of a mountain?

Now use a smallish brush and SMOOTH those stairs out. I guess the brush should be about as wide as the area you are smoothening.

Now, start at the bottom, and lay your new real final path, which should go down with no issues!

The only problem I ran into, shown in the video (coming soon) was put path on an up slope, to a level area, to a down slope.
I resolved it by starting from the other side sloping up again.

After your path is layed, you can do whatever you want to the terrain, and the terrain will stay stuck to the path. SO you can make rock bridges, or whatever...







THIS IS A TEASER...A FULLER VIDEO WILL BE COMING SOON...

good job! looks great [up] but hopefully there will be an easier way to do this in the full release

yeah they should def implement the path connecting flat to the terrain when the terrain is lifted.

Thanks! This is a great workaround for a system that will hopefully be improved somewhat soon. But I like this tutorial. [big grin]
 
Y'all are welcome! I'm surprised nobody thought of trying this, quite frankly.

Feel free to post up any screenshots if you use it. I'd love to see what people do with this. I'm sure Frontier will come up with a more elegant solution to the problem, but it's nice to have a work around in the meantime!

Not to be harsh cause I didn't take the time to express how to do this, I have done as you demonstrate awhile back.

Here is where this is a tremendous failure. There are many instances where after you use the smoothing tool the path still goes red. This happens often. You will find uneven paths like someone drunk did the path construction as very wavy. The best option would be for a spline path system with a leveling tool once the path has been laid and set to particular points of elevation change. The path system is better than RCT World, but I find it has many restrictions and has its own particular frustrating nuances that can become very aggravating.
 
GREAT TUTORIAL

Thank You for the tip. Sorry, I didn't think of that, but that was probably because I am incapable...lol...ha ha ha..
Looks Fantastic...
