This add-on for Traincarts adds invisible rollercoaster track to Traincarts. You can now have trains move or fly anywhere, roll around the rails and connect with other types of track. The custom track can be interactively edited and require no external tools or scripting knowledge.
Tutorial in English:
- Use /tcc give to get yourself a coasters editor map. Hold this map item to get started.
- Switch the selected mode between hidden/create/position/orientation/rails/remove using the A/D keys. To start, press D once to switch to create mode
- Move the map item into your other free hand using F. You can now move around while holding the map in your other hand.
- Right click on the ground or in the air to create a new node.
- Right click again and a new node is created connecting to the previous
- Repeat the above to make a small section of track
- Left click anywhere to deselect. Left click while looking at a node to select it.
- Hold shift while left-clicking to toggle select one or more nodes
- Double-left-click to mass-select all nodes of the track
- Select one node and double-left-click while holding shift, and it will select all nodes in-between.
- Switch to position node and you can move selected nodes by holding the right mouse button.
- To connect two nodes together, select them both and do create node. Alternatively, you can drag one node on top of the other in position mode.
- To split two connected nodes, select the two nodes and do a remove node. It will disconnect them.
- Signs can be placed where the designated rails block is for the node. Switch to rails mode in the editor to see where these blocks are. You can change the position of the rails block by right-clicking on a block while this menu is selected. This way you don't have to put signs where the track is.
- Animations can be added, which act as restore points between which tracks can be animated. Select the animation to make changes to different positions/states of a node.

Coasters are saved as .csv files in the plugin configuration folder. These can be read or written by scripting languages if so desired. There is bare-metal builtin support for importing No-Limits coasters .csv file formats.
As of version 1.16.1-v1 it is possible to place track objects on the wires connecting the nodes. These objects are also visible when the editor map is in 'Disabled (invisible)' mode. You can place armorstand-held items or floating blocks to the wires.
- Switch to the Track Objects menu in the editor
- Navigate down to the big button showing a block/item
- You can press left/right to change the type of track object
- You can press spacebar to change the type of block/item displayed
- Now you can right-click on wires to place down the configured object
- Left click them to select/deselect, similar behavior as track nodes is supported
- Right-click drag to move the object
- While dragging, left-click once to duplicate the track object
- Select two or more track objects, drag them, then left-click once to make a duplicating 'train' of objects
- You can use the delete button or /tcc delete to remove selected objects
- The object position relative to the wire can be configured by entering the position button
- Width changes how the track object is oriented on curved track. Use this to place objects end-to-end
- Object may be quite laggy, custom track models are recommended
- It does not work!
- Make sure to install the latest versions of Traincarts and BKCommonLib. Links are at the top of this page.
- Why are the tracks invisible? I want to show cool custom 3d models of rollercoaster track where the tracks are!
- As of 1.16.1 you can add track objects to the track, where you can configure your own custom item/block models!
- How do I hide the ugly signs?
- Use the rail tab of the editor to change what the rails block of a node is. You can then hide the signs you want to place somewhere unseen.
- Supports 1.8?
- Sort of. The plugin will function, but there are some visual glitches because of Minecraft client limitations. When editing rails blocks, you will notice these blocks falling due to gravity, for example. Functionally though, everything will work fine!
- Supports NoLimits2?
- Yes, you can place NoLimits2 CSV format files in the world directory of TC-Coasters, and they will be recognized. You can also use the import/export commands to convert.
- If you do not have the pro version of NL2, you can also use the free NoLimits2-CSV-Exporter (Github)
