This is my first publicly released map, weighing in at around 7500 coppers. You may need to turn down some settings. Made with the demo.

Although there is one main route, there are multiple splits and shortcuts throughout the course. My best time is a bit over 10 minutes, although I'm sure this can be improved with enough practice. Just follow the arrows and you should keep to the correct track pretty well. Comments appreciated!

Ehm, how the *bad word* did you get 7500 coppers?
View User ProfileSend Private Message marshdabeachy 20-Apr-2005
I downloaded a hack with gives a bit over 13,000 coppers. http://skubidou.free.fr/TrackMania/Sunrise/Coppers/CoppersDemo.zip Check the forums for usage instructions. Demo only allows 950 coppers, I'd have done it legitimately if I could.

Thanks for the awards everyone! More than I could have hoped for on my first map! One thing I forgot... just in case people curious couldn't tell from the picture, this is a start-to-finish race, no laps. 10 minutes of fresh track. As for your questions...

green_prince: I'm not sure if the half pipe jumps make your time any faster, it may actually be quicker to just respawn at the checkpoint and take the alternate route. I added them for sheer air time.

WWNSX: I think the key to making a long track is to constantly keep things fresh and interesting. The end has to be just as interesting as the start, as well as everything in between. Long tracks can get boring if you aren't constantly throwing things at the player - jumps, turns, drop-offs, road splits, shortcuts, etc. It's easy to neglect areas in long tracks. Even in Ultimate, there's a couple spots I would fix now that I've played it start-to-finish more times. The biggest enemy you're fighting is boredom, you need to keep challenging the player with new things.

Another key thing: Test, test, test. This goes with any track, but make absolutely sure every jump is possible, and there is a close fallback point if you screw it up. Checkpoints as often as you can spare them. Don't artificially extend your map with next-to-impossible jumps that force you to go back 2 minutes if you mess them up. I spent 25+ hours working on Ultimate (at least, probably more), you absolutely need to test for any potential problem areas. For example... backwards boost pads in Ultimate. Many of them were added before jumps so you don't overshoot and land on another part of the track. As a player trying the map for the first time, you'd have no idea you overshot the place you were supposed to go. Which leads to my final suggestions... arrows. The more complicated your map gets, the more directional signs you need to add. The player should never be wondering where to go.

Hope that helps.

theGorbster: Nice time, wish it would let me watch the demo. I'll check it out as soon as the full version finally comes out here.

At first my time was over 11mins but I learned the track & I set me record. Btw even better track the next few times u race it. Found sum new parts! I also hit the side post of the finish when trying for that record! Edit: gg zooz
View User ProfileSend Private Message marshdabeachy 07-Jun-2005
Zooz, that's definitely an impressive time, better than I could ever hope to achieve. I checked out your replay, and there's still one shortcut you didn't hit. Sometimes you have to slow down to get ahead.

Thanks all again for the awards!

WOW! I can't imagine how long it took you to create this. Long track but scrupulous attention to detail went into this. When is your next track coming out? Next year maybe?
