this is a new kind of pathing, you can make it straight (2) or curved (3)

Step 7: Arm With Stop

Picture of Arm With Stop

this is a special arm because the ball will roll to the yellow rod, which lets the arm move.

Step 8: Path With Elastic Edges

it works the best when the ball has some speed when it enters.

Step 9: Zigzag Stairs

this is an element that's originally made by knextreme.

Step 11: Gap Element

this is a variation on my gap element from flashback. the ball rolls half a circle, and then it falls onto the next.

Step 12: 2 Railed Path Adds

Step 16: 2 Ball Turner

the first ball arrives and stops at the end of the track. when the second ball comes, the track will move and both balls will leave.
member Happy999 edited this so it will turn if there is only one ball. the last three pictures shows her design.
