Because the Lagoon environment relies on terraforming to build just about anything I'm allowing terrain to extend outside of the legal building area ONLY as far as required to fit the whole track on it.

This is actually an extremely benevolent act of leniency on my part because Lagoon annoys the s**t out of me =p


Well, I was thinking that the 'beach' would be allowed to be outside so long as the car doesn't drive on it. If it was to drive on it, then it has to be within the track box.

Since the other environments have the option to drive outside of the box it'll be allowed for Lagoon too.

I'm confused...do you mean the option to build (not drive) outside of the box, or...?

No, driving is allowed not building.

Oh! Now I get it. Apologies. I was assuming that this:

  • The car can go outside of the box so long as it doesn't touch any blocks that lie outside


...meant that the car could, like, fly up/over the build area on a jump. I wasn't even thinking about off-road for some reason. Thanks for clarifying!

I would say that any terrain editing counts as part of the scenery - with maybe the exception of the ground/water in Lagoon, Valley and Canyon.


Yeah, in order to fit 32 or 64 high, I'm going to have to dig out the...um...canyon, in Canyon. I'll keep it minimal, un-embellished, and plain (and only as big as it has to be).

Quick rules question...because my track is 2 by 4 by 32 high, I was forced to carve out a canyon hole around the base of the track, like so:



The problem is that the bottom of the track that's buried in the hole is in deep shadow and looks weird and dark now--this is with the track sitting as high in the build space as possible.

Would it be okay to just delete all the terrain entirely and turn the entire build space into canyon/void? There's the same lack of scenery (unless you count a flat water plane), but everything's wide open and the track lights and looks a lot better this way:
