Itís nearing the end of February, we just had the Fault Zero One DLC drop (is that 2 in 4 weeks?!) and you may have noticed a ton of Single Player tracks in Private Matches in Online Multiplayer. But donít worry, the fun never stops. Weíre constantly working, and even if Shogun is sleeping on the couch at the office while Badger walks around like a zombie, I feel almost coherent enough to write a Uplay Recommended article.

So where do we start? How about a trip to a Sweet Jungle.

Sweet Jungle by JamaicanX
Donít let the name fool you, this is one heck of a hard technical track. Seriously, if you canít properly balance on steep inclines, then you might not have a good time. Learn those weight-shifting techniques, though, and youíll find a more than solid line that you will want to play a few times to set a decent time. The use of fog and pulsating primes make the world feel really expansive, and the theme feels very well executed.

Donít take my word for it, check out the video and then set your own times.

^FAUNE-ABYSSALE^ by commendo030
Commendo is back, and heís not just playing games. I think weíre in an underwater lab thatís falling apart, and if so, then the theme works perfect. Glass and reverb and bubbling liquid, the sound is really well done. The line CAN be completed by just holding down the gas, but most of us wonít be setting our best times by doing so. Speed runners rejoice, cause this track begs you to hit the smooth runs.

Check out FAUNE ABYSSALE in this replay, but make sure to run it a few times.

~Old Station~ by x KaiLiMAN x
Welcome to the train yard, friends. Old Station tells the futuristic world of Fusionís career to back off a bit and brings us a contemporary track set in an awesomely created train depot. There are some tricky obstacles, and the replay we used makes it seem a bit easier than it is. But all told, I had a blast running through this one.

All aboard for the replay, next stop, Track Central.

604 Eternal by Kush Land 604
Other than using that laughing sound, there isnít much to complain about here. Actually there is a whole lot to like. This is absolutely, 100%, without a doubt, an awesome rendition of a night track. Itís also a winter track. Just look at the track, it will make you feel 10 degrees colder. Thereís a great line in Kushís track, and I had too much fun trying to set the bar high.

Grab a blanket and give Eternal a run through. Also, put eyes on the video.

World on fire[FG] by FG-312
Some builders just want to watch the world burn. Some builders donít care about the world and just want to see you burn. FG-312 probably doesnít want anyone to burn, but heís created an awesome volcano lab track based around the Fire in the Deep DLC that should be the perfect follow up to the cold Eternal we just talked about. I almost forgot, there is a custom camera and a physics obstacle, and there are really well done. As is the decoration, as is the line.

See for yourself, and then give World on fire, and all of the Uplay Recommended tracks a play.

We arenít done just yet. Weíve also got 2 sweet X-Supercross tracks coming in this drop as well.

Jungle Zone fix [K8] by KALzzone8
I didnít actually get a chance (YET) to play Jungle Zone, so we got Mr. The Zzone to tell us about it himself:
I tried to create a simple track without using DLC objects so that everyone can play it. Unfortunately, one DLC object from Fire in the Deep slipped through, so I uploaded this fixed version. Luckily, I got the first version removed pretty quickly. The theme is pretty simple, I tried to make nature track with a slight touch of ruin pieces so it wouldnít be just rocks and trees. There wasnít clear inspiration for this track but it has similar look to Dacien Ruins by bassline001, which is a custom track I found pretty amazing."

Hologram Jam by IXI Satch IXI
What some people may see as simplistic, I see as stylized. I feel like there might be a light-disc flying towards my head while riding on Satchís Hologram Jam. The line seems pretty straight-forward, so this one is all about hitting the jumps at the right speed to get yourself setup for the next. That fumble at the lip of the platform? Yeah, thatíll cost you.
Get some friends together and give the Hologram Jam a run-through, user.

Seven more amazing community creations for all Trials Fusion players are hanging out in Uplay Recommended. Have you seen a track that we might have missed? Let us know, you might be the reason that their creation drops WORLD WIDE.
Until next week, riders.

Nice drop guys. I really liked ^FAUNE-ABYSSALE^, it looked a bit like Bioshock which I like very much. Extreme looked cool as well. :cool:

Almost as good as 42 Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, amirite?

So if I play these tracks will it feel like my brain is smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick?

Yes. Just make sure you have your towel.

Thanks for the pick. I noticed the glowing plants in the track aren't glowing in the ps4 version. I wonder why

Congrats on the pick Jam. Maybe you should make some more standard extremes. ;)

+1 very nice track indeed, had loads of fun playing this track think I've got it down to 15 faults right now ( which is good for me on Jamaicans tracks ) and going to plug away on it as I think I can zero fault it.

I wish more of the talented extreme builders would make standard extremes for us non ninja trialists
Good work jam :)

Great tracks once again.

I agree I like normal extremes a lot. I have yet to build one in Fusion myself tho.

I built one on Evo Gold (Red Sands Gold Mine) last year.
