Why do we still lack a good coaster design game?

Despite the newest games like Roller Coaster Tycoon, I am still annoyed that there isn't a program where you just design coasters (although in much more detail than Disney's Coaster), with the emphasis not on the entire park. I think a lot of people want a program that will allow them to really create replicas of the coasters we know, and have a decent POV ride available.

I work in a computer game company and everyone here knows how I love coasters so much. When I talk about any coaster related computer games, everyone knows and has played Disney's Coaster. With all of the limitations on what you can and can't do with that program, you can still do so much with it. I hope someday someone makes a much more adavanced verison with many more options including the ability to make custom track pieces by bending certain existing molds. Just imagine riding your coasters with full on Glide or D3D acceleration! Imagine the possibilities! Someone will make it at sometime. Disney's Coaster suffered from low sales mostly because all you had to do was install it on any computer you choose with out having to buy a new copy everytime.
