Say hello to the Turbo Flash Pack! This pack includes some maps I made in the past along with a few new ones. Some of the new ones you see here were a part of another pack called "Kart Mania," but since some stuff didn't work out too well during the collaboration, I've decided to take my tracks out and put them into a pack of my own! A few of my old maps have went under a large amount of updates since their previous threads.

Current slots for each map:
- V0
- V1
- V2
- V3
- V4
- V5
- V6
- V7

COURSES:
Green Park: Green Park is back with an entirely redone layout! A very easy 2-lap course traversing through a huge park merging nationality and recreation grounds! The time of the day even changes in later areas...

Roundabout Wasteland: A quick and simple drive around an abandoned desert. A 5-lapper, but plenty of turns to keep you on your feet.
attachment.php


Sakura Forest: Race through this blooming cherry blossom forest surrounded by many cliffs, rocks, and rivers. Watch out for the jumping fish as your driving!
attachment.php


Techno Station: Based off of FoxBlitzz's old SRB2 2.0 circuit map Race Alley, I give you, Techno Station! A blast to the past! Leans towards the intermediate side of things, but not too difficult to master.
attachment.php


Splash Heights: We're sky high. Fling yourself off jumps, maintain your balance on cliffs, and drift store to the best of your ability to stay ahead of the competition! Use those shortcuts whenever you can to catch up!
attachment.php


Sepia Swamp: Race across this spooky, wilted, and polluted swamp. Thematically-wise, this track is inspired by the Ghost-Island levels from Pac-Man World 2. This track is also tough, so be on your toes! (Credit goes to Ninferno for letting me use one of his Hadal Trench seaweeds for this map).

Blistering Shelter: Stuff's heating up! Race through this magma-surrounded cavern and avoid being burnt to a crisp! Compared to the previous map, this one's an overall simple 4-lapper.

V2.2a changes:

Roundabout Wasteland
  • Fixed a fence not being marked as solid.

Sakura Forest
  • Fixed another misplaced death plane.
  • Made a few adjustments to the last shortcut to discourage edge grinding off it.

Splash Heights
  • The launch points at the far left should no longer make you bonk off the cliff. (It had a tendency to send you back to a previous area as well).
  • Added an extra barrier to the rocky bridge.

Sepia Swamp
  • Extra barriers have been added to prevent exploitable waterskips. (To a degree at least).

V2.2 changes:
  • A majority of maps have had their level select pictures updated.

  • The second river section now has ramps in front of the pitfalls to reduce chokepoints. The offroad patch preceding them has also been removed.
  • The hill leading to the divided bridge has been moved further back so players have more time to react to it.

  • Added more checkpoints.
  • Other visual changes.

Green Park
  • Fixed a softlock problem at the beginning of the map.
  • NOTE: This will be the last update to feature this version of Green Park. An entire revamp of this track will replace this in the next version.

  • U-turn arrows are now used in the map.

Sakura Forest
  • Minimap adjustments have once again been made.
  • I think I'm in love with decorating this track.

  • The amount of fish on the track has been slightly reduced.
  • Some more checkpoints were added.
  • Added a boost pad.

Techno Station
  • The pillars that hold some of the pipe overhangs are now extended into the water.
  • The shortcut at the pool split can no longer be taken without a sneaker or invincibility. The boost pads that are in it also have use a light block as an indicator of where they are placed.
  • The hills at the halfpipe section are significantly less steep so they don't obscure the turns as much. They are also a bit stronger to take now.
  • More visuals were added.
  • Added a custom arrow sign just before the turn into the tunnel. The hill leading to it is also less steep to make the road more visible.
  • Reduced the amount of crates leading to the halfpipes.

  • Small visual changes were made in a few areas.

Sepia Swamp
  • Updated thumbnail.
  • A majority of the fog in the map has been removed to accommodate for readability issues.
  • Variated the textures and visuals in many areas so everywhere you look isn't just "brown." It was also done so the map doesn't look as bland.
  • Made the bridges and few other parts of the track wider.
  • The U-turn after the previous one at the evil tree is much wider and less precise to turn across. The minimap and shortcut as a result has been updated.

  • NEW MAP: Blistering Shelter Zone!

Roundabout Wasteland
  • The item set amount has been reduced to 1 to help make catchup less difficult in large netgames. Because of this, the item set has been moved further.

Sakura Forest
  • Minimap has been slightly adjusted again.
  • Even more visual touch-ups have been made.

Techno Station
  • Utilized a few U-turn signs to make a few of the turns easier to follow properly.
  • Removed a few of the rings in the pipe area.
  • The last U-turn no longer has a death pit around the corner. This makes the turn much wider.
  • Edited some parts of the minimap.
  • A few visual updates were made.

Splash Heights
  • Gave some areas a few QoL changes.

Sepia Swamp
  • A majority of the turns have been widened considerably to benefit bottom right characters better.
  • Many visual upgrades have been made to the map to not only make it look better, but to help readability cause less confusion.
  • The third bridge just before turning around the evil tree now has guardrails so Grow users don't blindly fall into the swamp water.
  • Some minimap edits were made.

  • The last section in the night area is much brighter now.

Sakura Forest

  • Made some small visual touch-ups.

Techno Station
  • Moved the second set of item boxes a bit further into tunnel. This no longer makes the first turn in it obscured.
  • The U-turn after the two sets of halfpipes is now sloped upwards and is more wider. Extra visuals were also added to it to make the viewing of what's coming up more noticeable.
  • The toxic puddles in the pool split area have been removed.

Splash Heights
  • The small pond at the beginning is much more shallow and is no longer a death pit.
  • The conveyor now has multiple launching points. This means players
    are much less likely to be item trapped while being catapulted in one position.

Sepia Swamp
  • The last section now has blue lines across the edges. This should make the offroad easier to distinguish.
  • In addition to the first change, the final area has been slightly brightened

V1.2a changes:

Splash Heights
  • Fixed a major exploit that allowed you to cut across a gap between the bridge and the grass.

V1.2 changes:
  • All minimaps should line up correctly now.
Green Park
  • Omitted a few of the tree stumps.
Roundabout Wasteland
  • The wall at the final turn has been replaced with a patch of offroad. This should make taking the boost pad path less risky.
  • Made a few offroad patches weaker.

  • Due to the vast changes to the layout, the minimap has been re-created.
Techno Station
  • Made some small changes to the finish line.
  • Made that one turn in the pipe area more visible.
  • The glue on the second turn is now gone.
  • Waypoints near the end have been fixed.

  • Removed the blood splat next to the second sneaker panel.
  • The final turn is a tad bit wider now.
  • Added a few fences across some of the corners near the end to prevent players from recovering at an unfavorable angle.
V1.1 changes:

Roundabout Wasteland
  • Applied a bit of mobjscale to make the map easier to play in large netgames.
  • Sand pit has been shortened to make turning around it easier.
Techno Station
  • Sector-attached pillars across some of the turns are now walls.
Splash Heights
  • The death plane near the beginning of the map has been fixed.
V1 changes:
  • Initial release

Eldog and many others: For the community resource textures used in Green Park and Techno Station.

Monster Iestyn: For his skybox change lua used in Green Park.

MK: For letting me use some of his custom textures (both Masters Pack and Alternate Match Maps), in Green Park.

Ninferno: For letting me use one of his Hadal Trench sprites for Sepia Swamp.

Lat': For a lua script that changes the sizes of SRB2 enemies.

SoupBowler: For letting me use his U-turn textures.

More courses will come in later updates.

Criticism and feedback would be very helpful!

I decided to give this a try, and while it's of good quality, I have a few complaints to make.

The first complaint is minor, but it's the fact that you added in a custom save file for this pack. Which, if you had medals for the pack, would be okay with me, but as there are none included, I feel this is an unneeded addon as otherwise, the pack would be playable in Record Attack normally.

The next one is... Minimaps. At times, it feels like the minimaps are off to me, as shown in the images I've attached.


Now, regarding the courses:

Green Park - I do like the concept of the time of day changing as the map progresses, but I feel like there have been other maps which have done it better, partly by having the change in time being in a tunnel where you can't see the sky. Otherwise, this wasn't too bad

Roundabout Wasteland - I really liked this track, although I will admit you placed the sinkhole in the right place where when I would normally naturally boost over it, I don't have enough time to recover before hitting the wall. Which I feel is a good thing - it encourages people to think about when they use their sneakers.

Sakura Forest - I will admit that the minimap caused a couple more issues here, as during the start of one of the water sections, it suggested that there was a shortcut through the waterfall. But there isn't. Also, a few guard rails on the platforms in the bit where you're on wooden walkways would be good, but as you said, it's not easy for first-timers.

Techno Station - Hey, I remember Race Alley back when SRB2 had Circuit mode! And this is a great recreation of it! Possibly the map of this pack I enjoyed the most!

Splash Heights - I will admit, this map has a few flaws which reduced my enjoyment of it, such as what I felt was an unneeded spring pad section before the speed pad-to-red springs which I would feel could have been done better. Plus, there are times when I had no idea I was about to hit a spring pad during the parts when you're racing in shallow water.

Sepia Swamp - Some of the visuals confused me somewhat, and there even was a death plane if you tried to cut a corner a bit too tight near the end which I felt was cheap. But otherwise, this was a good, tricky map.


As it stands right now, I'd say it's a solid 6/10 overall, or a 7/10 once the minimaps are fixed.

Just wanted to say Green Park is my personal favourite chill circuit for just being such a pleasant track to drive on, and the amount of detail in each section is top-notch. Fun to see the Chao just having a good time in each section. As Lat said, though, the final transition from night to day could use some improvement.
 
I'm REALLY sorry for the sudden update after dropping 1.2 yesterday. There was a super broken exploit in Splash Heights that I had to push a hotfix for. See changelog for details. I apologize for any inconveniences.
 
Yet another update is available for Turbo Flash Pack! See changelog for details! This will probably be the last update for a while unless there's a huge bug in the pack I need to fix quickly.
 
Not sure if two weeks is considered a "while" but aside from that, a siginificant update for Turbo Flash Pack is available! The one thing I will explain is that a few maps use a few U-turn signs for directioning. Here's a reminder of what a U-turn sign looks like:

Credit goes to SoupBowler64!

A new map has finally been made for this pack too: Blistering Shelter!

The rest of the details for this update are in the changelog!

It's been a while hasn't it? Well I'm finally happy to announce that V2.2 (yes I see the number), of Turbo Flash Pack is finally out with the new Green Park and a plethora of QoL updates to maps! I know it's been well OVER 5 months since the preceding update and I apologize for it. Trust me, I wanted to release this update much earlier, but quite a few things have kept me from doing so.

SRB2 2.2's release, general laziness, slow visual work with the new Green Park, and concentration on IRL events factor in to why this update took so long. However, I'm proud to say that this pack is back, and I promise the next patch won't take as long as this one did.
As always, details about the map changes are present in the changelog!
 
A quick hotfix has been released. There were some major oversights that someone pointed out to me in this pack, and I had to fix them quickly. See changelog for details, and sorry for the inconvenience again.

This is one of my favorite community packs for its accessible design and consistent map quality.

The new Green Park is a great improvement in both gameplay and visuals. I do question these pez dispensers though:

Also, while the visuals in your maps are usually good, Sakura Forest desperately needs both a custom palette with better pinks and larger leaf textures. Your alleged foliage looks more like slabs of undercooked poultry when strewn over large areas.

During some free play tests, I accidentally fell in this spot in Sepia Swamp and it wasn't considered a death pit so I had to use the respawn command to get out of it.
