My new track is done! This took me a good while longer then Dragon rider purely down to the scripts behind it.

I added the ability to control a mini-submarine at the beginning and there's also an Oxygen Resource. The green bars above the players head represent the oxygen levels, replenish this by passing through bubbles!

This track required a great deal of testing, it was accompanied by a number of bugs from the submarine randomly landing on the track to the oxygen script killing the player during the submarine section.

I also tried to capture the underwater feel as best as I could, using reference pictures, watching underwater programs etc.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Thank You

Its very very good to be back! I bloody love this community and thanks you http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif.

I've had a look at some other on Central and blooming heck! There are some amazing ones! It's only been out 5/6 days. I can't imagine what's to be created in the coming months.

I thought your map was very nice, but I have to delete it like any map that does not let me use the Phoenix, too bad because the map is great.

Mmmm damn... Ok, the track is already on Central, I could give it a re-design and see it working with the Phoenix too.

I completely understand where you're coming from QC, and actually totally agree.

Is it possible to take down that track, re-design it for more bikes and re-upload?

You can't take it off the server, you can upload a new version but if you do make sure to have something live v.2 so that we know which one is which, many peole made this mistake and now it's messy, some have 2 tracks with the exact same name and they uplaoded them the same day so there's no way to know...

Aftermath v2 is now up on Central, a few little touches have been added here and there. Changed the lighting and added a trail of fire that makes a car explode.

You can now use the Phoenix and the Piranha.

Thanks QC.

I didn't know there were people that refuse to play anything other than the Phoenix. What are the reasons actually? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif

Nice course btw will try v2 soon! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

Wow. That was truly epic. It was your tracks on TrialsHD that inspired me to make my own. So good to see your imagination use up some of that extra space in the Evo editor.

Sick track man...any possibility that your other tracks are getting revamped such as the beach one you had on trials hd?

hi man,
dragon rider rocks!! i had a similar idea with a big dragon or snake, but i know it wouldn't have been as cool as your track, love the fire spitting dragon!

Thanks so much guys http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif. It means a heck of a lot to me. I absolutely loved creating this track, it brought back some very fond memories I had when designing my tracks for Trials HD.

That's fantastic to hear, there's nothing I like more than knowing that my creations have inspired others.

Thank you

Very nice track.I thought the best part was from the time you jump in the hole leading to the underground to the end of the lava chambers. The dragon was awesome as well, but those sections were just dazzling!

Ocean Explorer was awesome and visually one of the best I've seen so far and had a lot of cool things going on like the sub, octopus, and shark parts. Epic track, 5 stars from me!

Ocean Explorer looks great. I love the atmosphere and the giant octopus is simply awesome.

The only (minor) complaint I have is when the camera pans far away from the rider. The may not bother most people though and is more of a personal opinion.

Stunning effort with the visuals,whilst not perfect drive wise its competent enough and definately worth a look.

This track deserves at least a try due to the stunning theme and the intro nod to R-Type/Z Out. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

the submarine was an annoyance but i really appreciated the detail and effort at the same time. Although not the best of lines I really enjoyed riding it and had to give it 5* mainly because of how amazed i was at all the details and how much enjoyed playing it.

I would really like your imagination and detail mixed with a 5* driving line and im sure you are more than capable.
What happened to dragon rider its vanished from TC?

Nice track man, good atmosphere, submarine part annoyed me at first but then grew on me after a few attempts.
Nice detail with a mammoth scale track without much lag, tis witchcraft i say LOL well done

Thanks for all the feedback guys, yep, I agree, the submarine part is abit tricky, hoping enough players dont give up at the part and not end up finishing the track.

I wanted zoom the camera out quite the distance so you could basically see the grand scale of the sunken greek architecture.

I'm going to be honest aswell, even since Trials HD, I have never been amazing at creating a solid driving line. I try to shine other ways, so I try to follow themes and pull them off as best as I can.


In response to h3x23, yes, it does appear to have disappeared somewhere..... Its in the My Tracks section for me, but its not in RL picks or when I search my name using the search functionality.

I may have to create a separate post asking whether the developers no why it may have gone.

I hope its not lost http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif(((

Its more than likely just been reported as offensive and will be restored when someone checks it and sees its fine. think this is happening quite a lot lately

Wouldnt hurt to make a post asking for someone to check it out though

Oh, I see, well I've put a little post on the forum, was in two minds whether to contact jenkki or another dev/moderator directly but I went with a post.

Cheers again for the feedback though, much appreciated, really nice to hear what people have to say about the tracks I create.
