When I first saw this month's theme I knew I had to make something. The theme? Make a track that is 1500c or less in size in a TMS environment.

The first few tracks uploaded for this MTC by other authors all tended to be around 20 to 40 seconds (mostly closer to 20 seconds). So that's when the inspiration struck... or perhaps I just decided to challenge myself... to build a fun track at the edges of the maximum time limit (1:30). This would be particularly difficult because of the copper restraints for this theme.

Well, I didn't get as close to 1:30 as I would have liked, but I had to save a little for some minimal scenery and signage.

The track ends up being around 1:06 on keyboard. I have no idea what the analog drivers will do here. There's many areas that are probably great for no-sliding. I look forward to hearing some feedback about that in particular.

I thought a lot about Dengel's tracks while building this one. I love how he uses very minimal scenery, and yet his tracks are still so very fun. So I tried to aim for the same feel.

There's an intro, outro, and autoloading custom music (Ellie Goulding - I'll Hold My Breath).

No GPS was added as the wayfind is very easy.

Screenshot is by me. (Large)

Coppers Used: Exactly 1500

I built the entire track in one evening, with no beta testers. If something is really bad, I have no one to blame but myself.

Enjoy!

Update: I had to do a quick update and raise one sign (copper count remains the same). Thanks for the feedback from the guys on the Air Time Space server, including The Doctor, Edge, and Mikealange. They also report that the track can be driven fully no-slide, even the last part. They're nuts! (in a good way)

"Oh, holding my breath
Won't lose you again
Something's made your eyes go cold"

A Taylor song would also fit this title.

Og og 1:01, bash my time...

Fair enough, I'm still a beginner on island, didn't expect to be bashed by nearly two seconds though xD

Crazy times.

Thanks for the awards and uploaded replays.
I'll write detailed replies later.

Hi m8,

Good effort here for staying on the 1500cc theme. But that's about it for me xD Basicly, for me!!, you have two track in here. A no-slider and a slider. And because of that mix I can't award it. Cause the no-slide parts are VERY on the edge for me. (I mean I either slide and loose loads of time, cause it wasn't planned, since I tried no-slide) So sliding makes them easy but slow, and doing them no-slide makes it incredibly hard for me. Specially with a fast ghost. I'd say, either go tech or go slide. For me a mix-up doesn't work. Even on no-slide I would have liked it I think. Cause it's funny you named Dengel in the author-comments, since he was the 1st person I thought of when I heard about the theme. Unfortunately I need to tell you that for me!, you didn't get to his level of mapping. Then again I think he's one of the best tech-mappers in the community.
So I can't award it cause it doesn't work for me. I'm glad though pad-drivers are bale to enjoy it a lot. (And good KBers) cause the times I see on the LB are insane!!

Beers m8!

Amazing track!

Great flow, easy to learn and no way to beat the WRs...
Definitely one of my fav island "almost-no-slider-for-kb" track. I the little left-bend curve jump around 21 seconds.

Good one once again!

Finally someone who gave a shit about the scenery and built a nice track instead. Definitely better than the other way round. Really tough for KB, but it's possible. Very nice flow, variety. Just the end... I agree with rava there.

From a view, it looks very plain. When you play it, you're too occupied to see the scenery anyway
