MTC - Malacca




This is a revision of the first proper map I made in TM2, Malacca. As outstanding I thought it was back then, it may seem a bit lackluster in 2020 so I thought about giving it a revival for this MTC.

Funnily enough, the initial, unreleased version of Malacca was deep in the canyon because that was the only place where you had water back then. Then ManiaPlanet 3 came and introduced water at the ground level, which fit perfectly for this concept. Then we got ManiaPlanet 4 with its mesh modeler. Inspired by one of   Eternity's base maps, I created a new base for the map, filled by an ocean across the canyon.

This revision comes with a few adjustments, mostly to make the route smoother but also simpler and easier. These changes don't affect the route too much, keeping the spirit of the original map. Now the floating sign at the diagonal jump is finally anchored to a wall and there is also a demo, which has bothered me ever since someone was looking for a demo and didn't find one when playing the map :p

Suggested listening: Vintage & Morelli - Daydream (Extended Mix)

Wallpaper (portfolio to come later...)

Items used:

Complete changelog for those who are interested:
  • New intro
  • Added a demo
  • Modified ambience (cloud opacity and FX)
  • Reworked the outro with a mix of old and new (which was pretty fun to do :p)
  • Created new water-based base
  • Rebuilt the map and moved it up one unit to comply with the new water level
  • Mood changed to late sunset
  • Reworked tech part with a different but much more forgiving transition
  • Sharpened the chicane before the left-hander tunnel; the native block is too ResidentSleeper
  • Shortened the main straight due to more speed and made the existing checkpoint into an item so it could be placed in-between
  • Modified the exit from the water-level platform and the following turn, allowing a tighter line
  • Added checkpoint on banked GP (it was not in the game back then)
  • Added safe route beside diagonal jump
  • Extended landing zone after diagonal jump
  • Added item checkpoint before finish
  • Made finish into a jump
  • More extensive signage
  • Revised and improved scenery
  • Removed all blockmixing (except for a top-mounted sign block)
  • Removed custom music and mod (which had dead locators anyway)
The original map:
