[OPEN] KO6 Pool (Building thread)

[OPEN] KO6 Pool (Building thread)4:11 AM 07-Mar-11 : Quote : Report : #

Known and famous tracks. Traditionally the KO pools have been purpose built and to be played as unseen tracks, to be fair and open to all.
But the KO6 pool of tracks is a little different. This pool of tracks will be made from previously released to TMX tracks !
The goal is to have a pool of tracks that are well known or famous, those that could be considered classics. Obviously they would need to be of style & difficulty suitable for the KO. (and be fully respawnable , have an obvious path etc etc)
Any TMX author, especially those that havent previously played or submitted tracks for the KO events are encouraged to ! As a guideline (even though the awards system can be flawed) we would expect tracks submitted to have over 20 awards. Tracks are welcomed from TMO, TMS or TMN. Or in somecases the track could be a known but unreleased track from a competition or special event.

Tracks should be ;
- Renamed with a KO6 prefix
- Authors are encouraged to make slight changes to their tracks to make the KO6 version unique
- change the mood or scenary
- fix respawns if needed
- remove and nasty holes + poles and other traps or obstacles.
- smooth or tweak any hard corners
- adjust any jumps to have a greater allowance of speed variation or bad driving, easier landings etc
- remove any unnecassary MT, or cams etc
- generaly simplify the track for rounds racing

Upload to:   TMXKO-P6 (Password: TMXKO-P6)
Upload your tracks to Beta Area, hide them and post a link to them in the track submission megathread.
Prefix: KO6
Difficulty: Easy
Envmix: No
Map Length: 40 seconds to 1min (45 to 50 seconds is preferred)

Additional existing tracks from tmx will be added to the pool to make up the number as required

This pool should be able to be filled easily or fast, Hopefully with many well known authors, and popular tracks that have been played many times on many servers and be well known to most of us

Nice idea! It's something different again. I thought about something like this, but else ^^.
My new track will sooooo suit this (not..). Clear path there .

I'll probably build something for the 4th (I thought so?) pack first .

Thx Rava, thats the exactly what i meant, although in yourcase removing the PF start makes it nealy unrecognisable, but the rest of the tweaks to make it easier and more tolerant of bad driving is exactly what i had hoped for ! Well done.

Thanks for your quick statement. I thought a PF-Start is really not what people would like to have on a KO-6. On the otherhand there are simply not enough Rava tracks suitable for a KO6. So I chose Golden Lagoon agreeing on removing the PF start.

Edit: Had to upload a new version because of a checkpoint fix.

Do you consider a track released just a few months ago a classic?
Seriously, I think the goal of this pool is to drive old and well known 'classics'. Therefore, I don't think this track fits the pool, at least not yet.

I think the tracks don't have to be that classic

Why do you even compare 'classic'.

Ugh, then i can't add any of my maps, simply because none of them are Classic rated

Hehe, jk - but a track being considered as classic might or might not mean that LB rating is high enough for that. Or is it required ?


My most suitable track for KO6 would be Gardens anyway.

My use of the word classic, is in the liberal sense, like "thats a classic movie". Not refering to tmx tracks LB classic status.
So any track can be uploaded, but see the original post, tracks should be popular, well known, and widely used on servers, as a guideline should have 20+ awards, as most tracks with 20 awards would have been seen by alot of players.

I just submitted the KO6-edit of my classic track "White Improvement by   maphios" . All the details I reworked are explained in the author comments of the KO6-upload. I hope it fits the rules and the requirements for the rounds mode.
