After thinking about it though, none of it may be pertinent if Traxx school doesn't require the "student" to perform tasks associated with the pics I'm about to show ya.
Good point, thats exactly why I decided to place some more models in the track than just the standard TRAXX School Track teaches. So I can learn how to place them, and make them function propery if they are a moveable object.
and as you know, we racers hate trying to shave a model close only to hit a part of it we can't see.
Yup exactly! lol thats one thing as a racer that can really frost our cookies so to speek, hehe. I fixed the grand stands to no-collide, and put object boxes around all of them, same for the water tower, and got them as close as I could get them.
The cone and cow are immobile, as are the port-a-potties and road hazard signs.
and a good minimum weight for even the smallest object is around 500.
I fixed the cones, cows, port-a-potties, and road hazzard signs. I did what Mr. Roboto said and set the weight to 500 lbs, and the cones to 350 lbs, they work great now, and even with the cones set at 350, they dont fly into oblivian as COPE discribed.
Oh wait! I did notice that your checkpoint flag is pointing out instead of in (reference Crazy 98)
Yea you have a good point, but if you look at the TRAXX School tutorial, Lesson D- Checkpoints, you can see thats how it shows to set them up, I questioned them when I was setting them up, cus when you pass throught them, you can see that the number on the CP flag reads backwards, but I left them due to the way it was shown in the tutorial. http://drive.to/Traxx
And there is one thing that I was aware of but didn't do, and maybe should have. Is to write my pod as uLtRaMaXTTAXXSchoolBeta.pod insted of uLtRaMaXTRAXXSchool.pod .So that changes can be made, and then re-uploaded under the current pod name. For my next track, I will do that. Thanks for the valuable input guys! Im hoping Phin or Mal take a peek at it, since they are truely the track editing gods in my eyes, to go over it and see if there is any final changes to be made, that way I can up the fixed version as uLtRaMaXTRAXXSchoolfinal.pod or something.
