Last week Heidi was announced the winner of the very first round of TrackManiac of the Month! The prize: a post dedicated only to Heidi
In this post you’ll get some information on who Heidi really is, what she does for the community, some background history, and a lot of other stuff! So what are you waiting for? Read the rest of the post
A while ago a new project was started where the community was asked to find underrated authors. Last week you all got a post here at the blog with some of the best tracksamong those that were found. The list has now grown to 106 tracks, and due to the length it’s almost impossible to test all at once and select a few. Therefore, every week a new selection is published with a few of the best underrated tracks.
So in other words, here’s a list of the best underrated authors at TMX
Screenshot of the Week
Sk84funPrzemo wins 50 coppers for this screenshot.
If you have a screenshot or two, send them to Jozii@pp.inet.fi. All screenshots will get published in the blog, and every week one screenshot is selected as Screenshot of the Week.
The first impression comes from the intro. It shows a track with impressive design of high loops and surrounding platforms, but also a track with minimum scenery. The track has very “light” (elevated) feel to it.
This, however, is immediately shattered by the first seconds of the actual ride. A PF start which opens with very slow and unimpressive jump and (again) very slow high loop (high loop is a loop with extended vertical ride) — no saltos, no bounces… And what I consider a serious flaw of any PF section is the lack of custom camera view that would at least show something interesting; here, the loop doesn’t even have a bumper cam so the view passes through walls…
But let’s continue with the first impression – the first ride feels very rough, unsmooth, with nasty surprises in the form of engine-stoppers and reverse boosters.
In yesterdays post I announced being away for the day. I’m now back, so in this post you’ll get the results of two challenges, and a third will be started:
Unfortunately I’m not at home today. Therefore, no results of last weeks Spot the Differences contest are posted today. Instead, these results will be posted tomorrow
In order not to leave you empty handed today though, here’s a little mini-game for you:
Both player A and player B has selected 17 as theirnumber. Player C has slected 19 as his number. Even though both player A and player B has the lowest number, player C wins as he has the lowest unique number. Of course, this is assuming no one has selected a unique number below 17.
Tomorrow, along with the Spot the Differences results, results of this little game will be posted as well :D The prize: 500 coppers!
As pointed out when the previous TMX Track List was posted, only having ratings for the tracks on the list isn’t enough. Previously, nothing concrete was said about the tracks listed, and just a number doesn’t say anything about what style the track is. Therefore, text has now been added for each track on this weeks list – and this will of course be the standard from now on
This week we also have five players listed for the very first time: Sivert, JakeOIL, Andree, Aaerox and Heah. These have done a great job and have received really good ratings. Among all tracks reviewed in this weeks TMX Track List, two were even so highly rated they earned a spot in the top 5 at our Tracks Page!
And speaking of the Tracks Page: With the 10 tracks reviewed in this post, we now have more than 100 reviews (101 to be exact – not including Blog Tracks, tracks used for article purposes or tracks that have only been advertised, not reviewed). That means that one of the tracks on this list – the second last one to be reviewed – is our 100th reviewed track! The lucky author of that track therefore wins 1000 coppers

Today three updates are brought to you:
Last week you learned the theory of movie making. This week you’ll learn the more TM related stuff – how to shoot videos in TrackMania United. Note that this works in Nations as well

Have you seen videos like “1K Project”? Would you like to make something like that too, but have no clue how to achieve that? If so, read on…
