Track updated on 25.03.2021 - I wasn't satisfied with the track and after the comment by XYY, I decided to redesign the track. I took the layout, some of the objects and parts of the original AI line and remade the rest. The old version is included in the zip.

Also most of the ground is filled with sand. Of course I think this is part of your minimalistic approach, but at the same time it makes the track pretty boring to look at. The road surface itself is quite bumpy, one can even tell from the screen, but I feel it doesn't make a difference in a positive way.
Lastly I was surprised by how slow the AIs are (compared to your other tracks), I made a heavy mistake in one of the first laps but still finished first in my 10-lap race.
Sorry, I'm not a big fan of this particular track...
The Track editor has its limitations. And if we have the chance to use simple programms like paint we should take it.
That´s the beauty of Generally-trackmaking. You don´t need fancy 3D programms or photoshop skills to make good tracks. All you need is time and dedication for that pixel-work.
Thanks for your honest comments, XYY. I admit that I rushed with the original release and I actually agree with everything you said. I wasn't satisfied with this track since the release of Vihervaara and had been thinking about updating it. However, I kept saying to myself "you never update tracks, why bother?" Now with your comments I thought that since it kept bugging me, why not do this track justice. Hence, the first update due to comments since 2003!XYY wrote:To be very honest, I think of the latest tracks which you made this is the weakest...
Exactly. That's why I've liked to use it so much recently. It has re-lighted my love of making GR tracks.Scholl wrote:The Track editor has its limitations.
I have to disagree with this. We shouldn't do anything we don't want to. If one feels like making Track Editor only tracks, then one should do that. The key is to be true to yourself. I wasn't true to myself with this track but now I'm happy with it.Scholl wrote:And if we have the chance to use simple programms like paint we should take it.
I agree. You can also make cool tracks without any external editors.Scholl wrote:That´s the beauty of Generally-trackmaking. You don´t need fancy 3D programms or photoshop skills to make good tracks.
Btw, I'm not planning to release many TE only tracks in future. In fact, I've got quite many GIMP tracks underway already.
