[OPEN] New TMX KO Pool (KO8) Maps needed!2:15 PM 30-May-13 : Quote : Report : #
Soft-Top Racer



As you can read in the title we'll be starting another brand new KO pool!

- Theme -
KO8 will be Fullspeed tracks on Time Attack. (Speedy tracks which are finishable without having to let off the gass)

- Rules -
Mapstyle: Fullspeed
Maplength: 25 to 35 seconds 35 to 55 seconds
Difficulty: Easy maps which are finishable on the first race.
Enviroment mixing: Allowed

o Make sure you have plenty of signage on your track to make it easy to navigate the route.
o Please make your maps keyboard friendly, we don't want analog drivers to have a really big advantage.
o Make sure respawns work (preferably without alternative routes).

- How to submit maps -
Log out of your account, then login using:
  TMXKO (Password:tmxko) case sensative
Name your map KO8 (then trackname).
You may submit as many maps as you like.


Upload your track to the Beta Area and hide it once uploaded. Then, post a link to it in the track submission megathread.

When we have received the track, it will appear in the TMX Knockout spreadsheet with one of the following statuses:

To be tested - The track has been submitted or fixed recently and needs to be tested.
Accepted - The track is verified for the knockout.
Need modification - The track has some issues that should be resolved. Please update the track and give us a heads up in this thread when it has been updated.
Rejected - The track is found to be not suitable for the knockout and will not be used. You are free to unhide and release the track if you want.

-Submissions -

See the TMX Knockout spreadsheet.

Declined
"KO8 - Jumpless" - Just way too techy, doesn't feel like a fullspeed map at all.
"KO8 - Just a route" - Way too easy which just makes it boring.
"KO8 - Val-d'Or" - 2slow4me
"KO8 Freewheelin' Fun" - I like the idea, it doesn't fit this pool though.
"KO8 Pensacola" - quite techy. Also pad drivers will be able to noslide the last turn, while keyboards drivers can't.
"dont care" - are you actually serious fallout?
"KO8 - Peep" - Unclear re-use.
"KO8 - Vanilla" - Have to let off gas in almost every corner.
"KO8 - Deadcow" - Have to let off gas in almost every corner..
"KO8 - Raw Fish" - Finish is really weird and unclear.
"KO8 Baydium Speed" - Unable to respawn because of the high ammount of back boosters.
"Ko8 ~ Focus25" Coast Party" - Ending seems a bit too hard.
"Ko8 ~ Byesland" - Unrespawnable wallride.
"Ko8 ~ Mad" - It was kind of hard to figure out where to go for the first couple times, you just kind of jump in an empty space.
"KO8 - Silencer" - That last turn is definitely not fullspeed.
"KO8 - Snowtastic" - It has just one CP, respawners are going to have a too big disadvantage.
"KO8-kool fast map 0000001" - Weird respawn before the loop.
"ko8 - gr8 b8 m8 dont h8 2 l8" - Map made by one of the worst builders in this community.
"KO8 - Blurgh!" - The part where you have to hop off the platforms and land on the road is unclear, weird and too long respawn.
"KO8 - Aquarium" - Having trouble finding out where to go.
"KO8 Burn It Down" - Just really hard to fullspeed all the way and a bit too simplistic.
"KO8 Fever Ray" - Loop doesn't work at all! I get a bug landing right before the loop every single time.

not sure. If the maps will be so speedy that every turn must be drifted, keyboard players will have bigger chances than on tech maps. Will be a very hard pool for me. I'm not used to drive Fullspeed maps for some years. Just the TMXCh maps are a bit training now.

I've made and uploaded 3 maps for KO8 but I've also made a mistake in a trackname.
Could somebody please change trackname on this track: "KO8 - Last one" to "KO8 - Last one"? It's just a trackname on tmx, it's ok ingame. I'm sorry

There is no deadline, the pool will remain open for submissions for quite a while.

Do it! We really don't want to end up with mostly island maps, we need variation in enviroments.
Remember, enviromentmixing is allowed.

I might consider building something as well, but what I am not sure about:
1. scenery: plenty or just a little light scenery, while concentrating on the track?
2. MT: any MT at all, or just intro/GPS?
I will try to build something KB-friendly anyway fairly soon though.
