Welcome to releases! I've been watching the progress of your map over Discord for quite a while, so I'm happy to see it finally come out with polish! While it may not have the minimalism I was going for with 3 Color Drive, it makes good use of assets to provide a feel of its own. My only real gripe was this part right here were I ran into this.. not a wall. Aside from that, excellent work!

I will fix both that AND the skybox as I had to axe the original for better frames!
Also, I will take any and all other critiques you all may have~
Thank you for the kindest of words!

Default Awesome!

I just had a play through this and I love the additional polish added!

Watching the progress being made on discord was really worth it! I haven't got alot of problems with this either outside of what D00d said. Also music choice, fantastic.

I hope to see more maps from you!

Is that my Daytona Mod you were using for the preview? I need to see if it already has a time set up for it...

...Guess not just yet. But I'm going to RA it, and see how well I do. Then from that, and your ghost, we might be able to decide on a time limit for the Daytona Mod and/or the upcoming Race the Clock (or whatever I'd call it once it's finished)


Edit: Is it me, or does the minimap feel... off? It's like it's off centred or something.

Hello!
First off I wanted to say I absolutely adore the aesthetic of this level, the music, and the track's design itself. It has quickly become a favorite on me and my friends' server.

That being said it has a couple issues keeping it from being perfect.

First is this jump:


it seems to have some issue where after hitting this jump most of the time you get put into a constant spinning state that makes it hard to control your character as evidenced in this gif.



The next issue is the subsequent jump, the one in this picture:


The issue here is the deathplane is so high up it's incredibly easy to clip it even if it seems like you should easily make the jump. This is also even more common with the spinning issue from the previous jump slowing you down.

My possible recommendation to fix this is maybe put in an extra boost pad earlier and also add an incline before the jump so you have some initial height over the deathplane.

(also this is a more personal issue but we all love combi mode and this one jump makes it impossible in combi mode pls fix :'( )

The final issue issue I don't have a picture for, but the course seems to have a hard time properly tracking the placement of the racers. I've had many races where I will be miles ahead of everyone in first place and I'll see the place marker fluctuate between me being in 1st, 5th, 2nd, 7th, and so on. This wouldn't be that big of an issue if not for the fact that it also affects what items you get. Due to this I've had multiple times where in first place it thought I was in 4th when I got an item and gave me invincibility or super boost.


But even with these issues we adore this map and make sure to play it everytime we play. Keep making maps man we love em!

Lots of big changes!
v.2a:
-Complete overhaul of the course! Your prayers for a balance between sneaker panels and items have been answered!
-Fixed an issue where the racers would pass the starting line before the countdown. (Your rolling start is in full bloom!)
-Fixed an issue that would would cause all of the way points to go haywire. (Not 100% sure but it's WAY more accurate, now.)
-Redesigned and re-centered the minimap
-A new skybox! This includes you lovers of the "FOV 110 cam_dist 110" playstyle!
-Fixed an error that would cause OGL users to not be able to see in the tunnels
-Fixed the death-plane/Out-Of-Bounds so that SPBs and other knock-ups wouldn't immediately re-spawn you from hitting the death ceiling. (You're going to have to hold that L, now.)
-FIXED AND ALIGNED SO. MANY. TEXTURES. (Still working on fixing the tunnel graphics in a future update.)
-Nerfed the Record Attack Ghost~ He should be much more manageable, now.
-Got rid of the fun, spinny time on the second quarter-pipe. [Sadly, it was intentional.]

Hopefully your servers should now be a-okay!
If you have any other comments, bugs or concerns, please let me know!
Your feedback is much appreciated!

v.2b:
-Fixed an issue where players couldn't clear the jump to the first quarterpipe. (Your combi/Growth shenanigans should now be functional!)
-Added guard rails to the moon room and lowered the outside slope. (You bounce lose less time for mistakes and don't fall off in the entire moon room.)
-Cleaned up the arrow textures in the moon room. (They should be less invasive, now.)
-Lessened the deathplane area of the quarterpipes. (It should now feel less restrictive, though you will still die if you try to skip to the finish.)

v.2c:
-Extended said ramp so that even 1/1-1/9 statblock characters can now make the gap with ease. (All ramps should now be clear-able!)
-Added another 2 toads for player enjoyment. (They're not in the way.)

v.2d/1.1:
-Fixed an issue where players somehow GBJ'd themselves at the beginning of the map by blowing up. (I don't know how you managed to do it. I'm impressed.)
-Added color support for Encore to be implemented in a future update.

Just did some testing of the v.2d and I have to say I love it! had nearly no issues whatsoever when playing it and I love all the small graphical changes as well!

Literally the only issue we came across was in combi mode the gargoyle would spawn above on the deathplane at the start, but there's a workaround for it so it's very minor.

v.2e/1.2: (Hotfix edition)
-Fixed an exploit that would allow players to complete the level earlier.

Also, you said that a gargoyle spawns on a deathplane? Got a screenshot?

the gargoyle only spawns in if there's an odd amount of players and it spawns once the race has started, it seems to spawn in too high and lands on the deathplane.

But like I said, it's a pretty specific issue, and it can be fixed by driving backwards till it falls off.
