O.K. ive read the tutorial for rumbles. sounds rather good. it helped. I simply had no idea how to set the object boxes to make it a scorable rumble.
now, i have a problem. the platform is setup with three drop thru holes. so you can either be cranked off the edge, or into one of these holes, to drop below. my problem is this. When you drop thru the hole, it keeps you scoring as if you were still up top, until you drive out from underneith, which gets you outside the scoring area (above). The boxes are set just, and i mean just, above the platform, not all the way down to the ground.
I am lost, confused, bewildered, you name it.
PLEASE HELP!!! :-)

Howdy Sleeper,

Sounds like you've done everything correctly. How 'bout you send the pod over here so I can have a closer look.

I thought maybe the scoring zone might be sinking into the ground the way lights (aka trains) do, so I tried raising the terrain in the center to match the ground box, then I tried lowering the ground boxes. Nothing helped. Then I hit on the idea of just raising the rumble zone and raising it and raising it. I noticed improvements so I kept at it until it was reasonably good. At one point I had it so you could jump out of the pit, go through the air (passing through the scoring zone) and it would buzz as the truck landed. I kept raising it until that doesn't happen. Really strange over all. Many many rumbles have high platforms without this trouble. Must be you, lol.

The thing I noticed when i checked out the Summit pods was the rumble zones are raised a bit off the G boxes. Maybe if you raise em up a bit you know... Image I see you did that Phin, good workin
