(Original title: Track 2...)
...is being designed right now. First draft was almost two minutes long so I'm shortening it a bit. I still haven't decided which car will be used...  ::) although my shortlist has only two viable options at the moment.

Track open to visitation. Despite the fact I can assure you that this will be the slowest race of the season, it is also a sort of public opinion test - your reactions to it will be one of the factors in some design decisions further down the road. So, if you hate the thing, be vocal about it... but try and race it at least once! ;)

Just completed my first lap. Actually had a nice ride on slow corners then pushing on max in speedy straights. I'd say track is more enjoyable than previous one. Perhaps of slowly car? Only terrain is miserable, so no nice views from car window  >:(

1UP  :)

The ugly layout is intentional. Since the title track/track title is rather at odds with such a slowish Audi course, something had to be aggressive in the design  ;D By the way, those scattered track elements are actually most of the rejected first draft for the track...

two questions
« Reply #6 on: August 25, 2009, 09:37:12 PM »
Is this allowed, or out of staying on track rule:





Can I enter corkscrew left/right in both ways or just as shown with green arrow?

Is this allowed, or out of staying on track rule:




1. I had never stopped to think about that;
2. My rules actually do not say cork undersides are part of the track proper;
2. Weren't it for this observation I'd never hesitate about having it as valid;
3. In fact, I thought of that trick during the design;
4. No OWOOT competition so far outlawed it (I looked for and found an IRC example for reference);
5. It seems pointless to add an annoying restriction on such a small thing that may just be a graphical design oversight;
6. Therefore I'm allowing it.
7. It took only a really short while for me to get knocked off my high horse on the subject of my "perfect" rule set, and the long excuses above are here just for making that all the more obvious  :)

I assume you're asking whether you need to follow the yellow line strictly (green line) or only start to "loop" the cork halfway through it (red line). If so, both lines are valid, as long as you get upside down and leave by the other side of the red wall.
