This is a 3D-world where you can build and edit a rollercoaster. 

Technical introduction

The features of rollercoaster.exe:
-You can save and load map files
-Three different camera states:
-World(you can move the camera around as you please)
-Top(A top to buttom view)
-Train(A view from the front of the Train(Some problems) )
-Three different track curves:
-Linear(Straight lines between the nodes)
-Cardinal(Makes a smooth line that passes through all the nodes)
-Cubic(Makes a cubic B spline curve out of the nodes, I doesn't go through all the nodes
like cardinal, but it's more smooth)
-Three different ways you can draw the track:
-Line(creates a single line that follows the track)
-Track(creates two paralell lines that follows the track)
-road(creates two paralell lines that follow the track with railroad tiles across)
-There is a play/stop button for starting and stopping the train
-A slider to adjust the speed of the train
-Buttons to add or delete nodes(control points) to/from the track
-A checkbox to turn on and off Arc-Length(You have to reload the track for it to take effect)
-There is a skybox surrounding the track.
