Addition to the rules - read carefully. 08 May 2013 20:12:36  
Addition to the rules:

Rules says:
:build: Attention! If your map uses some sort of custom object / custom block, it is your responsibility to make absolutely sure it works "as is" after downloading the map file. Judges are not required to download anything else besides the track file (in fact, they get all the tracks in one package -- if anything is missing, too bad!).


This is a reaction to a problem with Jump 'n Run from April round, where the creator used a custom block and those who did not download the block, could not play the map.

Oh crap, that's my track! :( Anyway, I highlighted the use of that custom block and its DL link in the page of the track...

When I went to the linked page, I couldn't find how to download the object. Clicking on "Download" gave me some unclear xml stuff, but no clear "Download this, put it there etc." instructions. Please doublecheck.

After I found out where to download the Object, I had no issues, but I knew where to put it. I agree with Lodec!


Also, Doesn't an object work with locators as well? So a manual downloading shouldn't be necessary ;)

EDIT: after hours of testing and communicating with other players, I found out it is not possible... DAMN NADEO!...
except hexing the block into the mapfile with some hexedit programm, which is not really easy :d

How the hell did I miss the emphasis on "climb"? And I could've sworn I've read it carefully...this confuses me very much. Thankfully I'm not afraid to screw up and do so with all my heart... LOL:p

Ah well... it's all for fun and I still hope you guys enjoy even the mini-climbs I've got in there. Had I realized it earlier, I would've put a big one in, but well... they are really shitty to drive, though, so I really don't get it. I had one in when I started and hated it, replaced it with the ramp you'll find onto the little hill at the end of the first section. Ah well...I'm still writing? Pffff

Oh, and in case this was an added rule after the first posting (I'm still shaking my head on that...did I REALLY miss that?)... just let me know, please, to let me hold on to some of my sanity!

I just updated the map info and added where to put the block .zip file when downloaded. Hope it works, and thanks for letting me know (y):done:

Sorry to disappoint you, but the requirement of climb was there from the beginning.

You know, I'm not that disappointed after all. I think my track is actually fun to drive, considering the amount of offroad it has, and without the general idea from this MTC I would've never made such a thing. SO...I'm grateful, even if it fails here.
I'm gonna go back and see, if I can beat 1m21sec[Wait's time], damned...:build: :s

Alright...after 2 more attempts at making a "pure" offroad track and test-driving the current submissions I am convinced that this would make a PERFECT final exam of an anger-management class. Should your hardware (including walls and windows) survive the grueling attempt to make this a fun experience, you shall pass victoriously the class...but I'm not convinced it would make you a sociable person, HAHA.... doh, sry. I must say, this MTC is harmful to the whole franchise Nadeo had started. But- who knows- maybe I'm utterly wrong and it raises new hopes for "Valley"? +o(
