Presenting the Aether Cup!

Currently featuring 3 maps, with 2 more to come (1 hell), this map pack is aimed at multiplayer fun. Hopefully nothing spine-breakingly difficult, but even the gentlest of maps will harbor perils for the inattentive racer!

Spoiler: Maps
MAPY1 - Crystal Caverns
Beneath a barren, icy tundra, discover various caves of gleaming crystals - and maybe some other things!
Towards the lower end in terms of difficulty, this 3-lapper shouldn't provide too much of a challenge, but watch out for patches of ice and bottomless pits!

MAPY2 - VR Towers
Why go to an actual race-track when you can race from the comfort of your own home? Plug in to Virtual Reality and race this moderately difficult 2-lap course. This isn't a super technical track, but there are hazards to watch out for, and very few walls to keep you on the track.

Map Y3 - Hilltop Haunt
Loosely inspired by Medievil (1998). Atop a treacherous hill sits a spooky mausoleum - what awaits inside? Dodge sticky mud and boulder-throwing gargoyles on your way up, and find out!
Hopefully the easiest map in this pack, this 4-lapper isn't too punishing, but i'm sure other racers will still be out for blood!

Map Y4 - TBA
2-3 lap track, requiring more technical driving skills

MAP Y5 - HELL ???
Something nostalgic, but probably horrible to race on (:

Thank you to the folks over at #course-help and #custom-courses for advice and help with problem-solving.

Final thanks to everyone who helped me find music.

This checks out! These are two pretty fun tracks, will look forward to seeing what the other two courses you have planned are like as well.
