This is my entry for the November MTC of 2018

Theme of the Month: Modern Classics !
To celebrate 15 years of TrackMania, you're tasked with revamping a classic campaign map!
Your route should be notably similar to the original map's route

Map: TMO Survival 13

As the theme is about having the route be similar to a classic campaign map, I thought about a way to deal with this theme in a creative way. Either only loosly base your map on the original and build something completely new (which I wasn't really keen on because I normally want to embrace the theme in the mtc's and not try disregard it completely) or make the new track as accurate as humanly possible, which i then decided on.

Then I needed to find a track that could be really interesting to rebuild and my idea for that was to have multiple routes in the original map, or in other words cuts, to challenge myself in making them all fun to drive and as accurate to the original as possible. So I ended up with TMO survival 13 which is a very compact rally map with 2 different re-route cut approaches which I found to be really fascinating. Additionally one of the cuts also drove through the rally water which I really wanted to reproduce. (Other contenders were BayD2 and SnowE)

riolu's record with the old approach
blackq's record with the new approach

For the track itself I really wanted to make the feeling while driving the track as similar as possible and I made quite
a few objects and block variants for achieve that as usual. The whole water part is built with items or blockmix to not get the normal slowing down physics from the water. I also smoothed out the jump out of the water so that it is 100% consistent now. I also managed to make the times of the various ways almost identical. blackq's wr is a 40.68 and my pb while testing with that route is a 40.52 in my version. Same goes for the other routes.

I had a lot of fun building this map and I hope you enjoy driving it aswell,
Lars
