With Trackmania 2 on the horizon, this will probably be my last platform track for the first Trackmania; the new game looks incredibly exciting, and I doubt that I'll return to Trackmania once it's out--at least not any time soon.

This track begins with a huge leaping series of jumps to the first CP, and as I was building it, I found myself placing each CP closer to the last one, until finally the last CP and the finish only have a one block gap between them. Thus the name.

As always, any feedback is greatly appreciated, and I greatly enjoy watching first-runs, and watching your clever minds at work as you figure these things out!

Thanks for the awards guys! I'm sure I'll see you all in TM2!

Acid, I'm glad you enjoyed it...where's your replay?

maphios, that was fun to watch, and yeah, you got owned a little trying to get to CP4--that's probably the most lucky CP just because of the tendency of the car to roll on that roof. I have my own method that gets it about 2 out of 3 for me, but it's still rough. Nice job for a first run!

htpioneer, thanks for the award; I'm glad you had fun!

Damn, had my respawn at the very last CP .

Aw. When I first read your comment, I thought surely you had missed that last little hop-across, which is a little tougher than the one before. Whoops. I thought for a second you were going to just loop around and do the previous CP again instead of respawning.

Anyway, that's an amazing improvement in only one day. It took me longer than that to get good at the track while I was building it.

Edit: Fachs, thanks for the award; I'm glad you had fun with (most of) it. That last hop is a bit tricky. If you feel like trying it again, you can watch maphios' replay to see how he does it, and I usually start at the bottom of the ramp instead, and go up a bit and across. It's pretty tough to be right at the end.

Edit2: Realized2, great replay! Driving like that is really fun to watch, and you managed to *almost* miss the road on that last hop off the booster, which made it exciting. Thanks for the replay and the award! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I really struggled with my first try here .
Got the first CP at 2nd try but after that I never got the car going. I think I will just have to drive again to see me improving a bit .
Nice work there though, entertaining and challenging track. Hardest part for me was the jump over the white roofs, because I just couldn´t control the car there and had to hope for a bit luck.

Great One!

Oh my gosh!
really great ideas and awesome last platformer in tmu(f).
I enjoyed playing the first parts till the last checkpoint came up. I never did it over the streets, so there is no replay this time. maybe when i manage to do it.

Pretty fun jumpy platform! Loved the flow at some points also
