Recently I volunteered to update all the signs on the 45 maps built by   Goldwatch. They're very popular maps on the Smurfen server, due to their incredible flow. Unfortunately the dead links used in the locators meant the signs no longer worked on most of the maps. I also fixed some flickering here and there, without affecting the route. It even required creating some new custom blocks specifically to fix some of the maps.

In the process I ended up observing closely Goldwatch's building style. I began to see patterns. Types of transitions he used, certain block combinations. A lot of height changes happen in his maps. And when the CanyonPlatformExt item pack was released, he took full advantage of it to create incredible maps like "Qapital". Even his choice of scenery was very different from what I do. Arena red turbos as scenery, pipes to connect signs, trees and terrain on arena blocks, and generally a lot of blockmixing and a lot more industrial elements. Something else he did was use the same terraforming as a base map for multiple maps. It's an interesting idea, and something that is just now gaining popularity, with mappacks like "Base Maps (For Your Tracks)" by   Eternity. He also took full advantage of offroad sections to trigger slides.

All of this triggered in me a desire to create something that would pay homage to the legacy of Goldwatch's maps here on MX. So this is a gift to both Goldwatch, and to the Smurfen community who have come to love his maps so much.

I hope you enjoy playing the map as much as I did creating it!
