Linkin_J_Knex (author)Lexi Knex2015-10-09

OK, I'll develop it further though as its unstable and not very interesting

Lexi Knex (author)Linkin_J_Knex2015-10-09

Lexi Knex (author)Lexi Knex2015-10-09

Linkin_J_Knex (author)Lexi Knex2015-10-09

Lol thank you. I also developed another element however I may wait until I make my next ball machine before I start showcasing more elements

Linkin_J_Knex (author)Lexi Knex2015-10-06

Hmm. So you managed to make it fall onto the track however I don't understand what your second problem is. Also don't worry, your English seems totally fine :D Thank you for your positive comments!
