I was trying to make a rollercoaster track generator using the spline/spline mesh but is seems impossible to do in UE4 or it is hard as hell. First I was trying to make it from the Zak Parrish “tutorial” from Epic Youtube channel. Then I was making it from this tut: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GIcFrR-bJk but there is one “little” problem - I can`t make the bending. When I try to make loop like 180 degrees the mesh starts to twist in unwanted way. I know that this is due to the up vector of the spline. The Zaks tutorial has a bank attribute but it is not working as I want (cant make a barrel roll etc.
In the newest version of UE4 we have access to the Spline Up Dir but the thing is that it is applied to the whole spline not to a particular segment/point of it.
Any idea if it is possible to make a rollercoaster track?
Cheers and Merry Christmas!
