    For this you will need 500 mine cart rails (1 block = 1 meter), which is about 8 stacks of 64. The amount of powered rails you use in your track is up to you- if your track is flat, I would use a powered rail with a redstone torch about every 40 rails.

    You are going to need a lot of iron and some gold, as well as some sticks and redstone. You can build a long row of blocks in the air and lay out your track on top or just build through the landscape. Either way, you need to ride a mine cart from one end to the other without stopping.

    I rode mine multiple times from a world I've been using since 2012 and it didn't work.

    Jarie SuicuneImported worlds have a couple cheats pre-activated (thus disabling achievements), so you have to disable them before loading it for the first time.

    bumgarbAre turns allowed? I understand that you need to move 500 blocks in one direction, just wondering if moving a little side to side to go around stuff along the way is a problem.

    MoustachioI just got it building in an imported tutorial world. I even used a straight section of the existing loop in the tutorial area. I ran into an issue where I was ejected, but it seemed to be because I was on a decline with activator rails near another specialty rail (I had no issue with an activator rail on a straight stretch near standard rails)

    You can do it without gold or redstone rails, just hold the thumbstick forward and you'll keep going. Going up and down is fine as well.

    AwakeDeadeyeNot working for me, got more than 500 rails in a row, including gold ones. I've unlocked other achievements with this save so it's not a problem with the save. The only thing I can think of is the lag keeps making me slow down. At least it looks like it. I don't know if that's counting as me stopping though. I've also tried looking in the sky from point to point to not load the map, didn't work either.

    The S bot 9000The physics for redstone seem to have changed between now and the older versions of 360. I had a rail that went all around my old 360 world and now there's a few angles where redstone doesn't power the rails anymore. Nothing a little troubleshooting wont fix but it's annoying nonetheless lol
