a reprint of the contest review:

This is a custom track through and through. A lot of beautiful work in there. There has been a big effort put into this track and it really shows.

The bright textures around the pool are a welcome change to the usual brown and green of most tracks. Driving around the large poolside chairs "made me feel like I was in the game Re-volt with a monster truck." The sandbox is very good in both texturing and altitude work, and that storm drain is so realistic you'll want to slow down and look around.

This track has some extreme texture transitions, and it was done nicely, and the textures are apropos the area you are driving through. But, in spite of the author's stated goal to create multiple environments, and he did that well, preference tends toward a consistent theme. The separarte areas could each have been the basis for three or four good standalone tracks.

The racing line varies a lot, slowing to a crawl with tight turns in cramped tunnels, that will require some practice to negotiate well. The wide open spots, on the other hand, are nicely enhanced by visual clues (i.e., trees), except of course through the sand box where the texturing does the job. The dirt track road surface is just right - not too bumpy/jumpy, and not too flat/smooth.

A few technical notes though: If you call the helicopter in the tunnels, it will drop you on the roof and you will have a time of it going through the checkpoint below you, the ground box incline near the beginning is rough and unnecessary, deckchairs shoulda been set to collide with mass instead of being solid objects, the trees should have collideable trunks, the checkpoints are cool but woulda been even better with numbers on the globes, and, jeez, mount it higher in the list than Lord Cap's Pack or the road will take on an entirely different appearance.

A cool track with some excellent ideas. The "backyard of ZooN's Kitchen" describes it well (thanks RudeDog for coining the phrase). It's a fun track, and unique. And you have to respect ObeOne's patient attitude toward his own releases and his commitment to quality.


Try it if you haven't already
