Dusted off the old editor and had a little fun..... As you can clearly see, I'm no better at making screen shots than before, so I wouldn't hold your breath about the track



Update
Sorry about the cut, fixed!

Update
Sorry, but on the vague possibility that anyone still cares, I went and fixed cutting again!

Track is good, but unfortunately is has an obvious shortcut, sorry!

Nice to see you mapping in TM1, MrA
  MrA 13-May-2018
darn, I should have seen the cut but I just wasn't thinking about it ... I have fixed it now, thank you for pointing it out.

Thanks rad, *Speedster & OLDA_X for checking the map
  *Speedster 13-May-2018
Thanks for the fast update
  rad 13-May-2018
Thanks for update, it's still here though. Some media tracker blackscreens could help maybe

The 3rd checkpoint is bad placed. I often hit it during the jump.
  MrA 13-May-2018
You drove up the rocks on the other side of the barrier, if it was Cactus and not the rock then that might do it?
  rad 13-May-2018
Nope, it's possible to jump from the road directly to platform block. so it wouldn't help
I've found two other possible cutways, let me prepare some replay pack.

Here are a few more replays I made, also two screenies with suggestion to where additional checkpoints could be placed to help (hopefully). There's also always an option to put media tracker blackscreen (it's possible to make it appear under certain conditions, like for example only when the racetime is lower than some value).
I'm sorry about the shortcuts ;(

It's not so easy to fix cuts. Maybe, I have sometimes this problem on my tracks.
  OLDA_X 13-May-2018
Personally, I would solve it using MT and a black-screen system.
"Did you not drive through this checkpoint ( mt switch or mt detector of transitions )? Therefore the black-screen comes on this place"
A possible solution could also be the smart location of the motor switch. Rad will find as difficult to ride through the barrier with the engine off
Adding checkpoints can resolve the problem, but the track can be stays unrespawnable.
The track has a problematic layout and it may require more updates for full problem solving.
  MrA 14-May-2018
Thank you for the good suggestions.... my feeling was to stretch the map by 1 block, allowing checkpoints in the tunnels. I'm sorry to those guys who enjoyed racing the cut and uploaded their replays. I hope this is the final version, it races a little faster due to the extra block length through the middle of the map.
  rad 15-May-2018
Thanks for update
  MrA 15-May-2018
nice one rad

But I don't think I am updating it again, the layout is open and the risk of the cut is the risk of the charm of the open layout.

Also a nice time darkman, the cut route is really inventive and fun to watch
