Have you seen this page? Some helpful hints there about smoothing out the flat parts to the hill parts.

http://cownap.com/~mtmg/traxx/altitude.html

I like the lake in the corner to prevent anybody cutting across for a short cut. Hills work well in the same way.

Start / finish line can be anywhere. It's always nice to have a bit of a straight stretch just before the finish so you have a chance to race it out.

Since you're using farmroad then trees and a barn and a few cows are always fun. If you check Mal's page, you might like some of the evo conversion models.

Now you're talkin'! All tracks without cows suck imho ;)

The best advice I could ever offer is to just take your time and don't rush it. Experiment and have fun.

Hey i think a possible name for this course could be something like Hazzard county as it looks like something you would expeect to see the general lee going around especially if u have a couple of good jumps in it....over a lake or sumthing

Hey, that's coming along really well.



Tip. Water doesn't need to be any more than a couple feet deep.



Keep up the good work.
