Take 2, just like this track is a second take on a theme.

Please forgive any instances of rushing feeling on these Author Comments. See, Opera unilaterally decided that alt+1 is now the start page, even if it's on text focus, which makes it impossible to type my full nickname with tag. That also means my Author Comments have been lost once they've been fully written. It's now 3:35 am and this should have been released for 2 hours now.

Back to the topic in hand, this track was inspired by four factors in decreasing factor, which are the Monstercat "Best of Drumstep / DnB Vol. 2" album mix, my old school building style, November 2011 MTC theme and the Valley environment. The result is a 51 seconds transitional noboost fullspeeder with different surfaces and elevations. The layout also has a couple of quirks, but it'll all be explained on...

Track Facts

:done: 5176 coppers. Something light :cool:
:done: 11 transitions and 11 turns. 4 of the transitions either land on or takeoff from dirt. 4 of the turns are to the right. This is only a funny coincidence.
:done: There are 6 checkpoints but...
:build: Only the last one is actually respawnable. It's basically because this is an offline map...
:done: Which also explains the start (multilap block) and the layout (around and back)
:build: There may or may not be a future version that's actually a lapper. It is yet to be made. So don't expect it.
:done: It's fully decorated. By comp. Hence the "ft. comp" in the trackname. It was a happy coincidence as well.
:done: There's a 51.91 timed GPS in this track.
:wait: There isn't any other MT in it tho.
:done: The around and back layout means that you start and finish in a multilap block, but facing different directions. The usage of the garage multilap start allows for extra funkiness making the start above the finish, but that's a different story.
:award: 51.49
:gold: 55.00
:silver: 62.00
:bronze: 78.00
:done: Of course, there is music. This time is a relaxing drumstep experience. And yes, such thing exists. Go listen to the BGM for this track (Dope Arcade - Ascension (MitiS remix)) and see (or better hear) for yourselves.
:done: The screenshot is made by eyebo and it can be found somewhere around here.
As a Fun Fact, the track was finished a little over 3 weeks ago. Then comp decided that he wanted to polish the deco a bit. Then real life got in the way and it couldn't be done. And then I decided to release after comp confirmed that he wouldn't polish this deco, which in my opinion didn't need any polishing anyways.

Thanks zone!

As always, thanks to the people of #MX@Quakenet and the buddies on Fun Trackers for testing this map and giving some detailed, critical and helpful feedback (OMAGAD WEN R U RELEEZN DIS). Specially nimrod, who did eventually give the feedback at the forum and gave the final approval to a layout made in one take.

Special thanks to comp as well, who took a map to take a look and give a couple of ideas on the deco with screenshots and ended up making the scenery for this track. Scenery that by the way is awesome. So thank you.

And special thanks to eyebo for making the screenshot and readying everything for release.

Showcase Zone!

Having 3 people to thank, the whole "3 showcases" thing makes a lot more sense.

First one is for Nimrod's last map. I hope he gets back to mapping too, but in the meantime, take a look at this fullspeeder.

The second one is for comp's latest map, a wallride slider for the MTC. And honestly, I can't think of anyone else to properly make such a track.


The last one is for eyebo's trial 3x3 canyon map. It should be 1: a welcome back into the community and 2: a friendly reminder to map more, but as it is now, he's going to have his hands full with the latest project:

___________________________________

Thanks for landing into my 10th TM² release. I'm pretty sure that you will play it too once you're here, so I ask you to award if you like it. Also, I want to say that the fact that I had gone back to my roots is nothing but a happy coincidence. And with that, I place you to a new release in the near future.

From the mapper that drastically reduced the amount of purple in his maps since his last Valleu release
