The BASCO (Build a Stage Competition) is a project where you compete through multiple stages to try and get your part in the track.

It will be run from now until 1st of March. What happens is 'the track so far' will be uploaded to a special TMX user. Then we invite anyone to download the track, delete the finish line and build 12-15 seconds of additional track, validate, and upload to TMX.
This year there will be 3 styles of track again; 1 Fullspeed track, 1 Tech track, and 1 Dirt track. I was about to kick the dirttrack out as it wasn't completed last year, though some good guys made me leave it in

Taking part requires you to do the following:

1. Download the latest version of 'the track so far' (a link is provided each week).
"S1-Fullspeed-Ad!key by   BASCO2014"
"S1-Tech-Quat by   BASCO2014"
"S1-Dirt-der-bozz by   BASCO2014"

2. Delete the finish piece (and if necessary, a piece of road that only existed to make laying the finish possible). But do not delete or change any other part of the track. You can modify landscape/scenery as necessary in order to build your part, just don’t change the driving line of a previous stage.

3. Build your idea for the next stage of the track (including scenery), adding 12-15 seconds to the validation time.

4. Validate and save your track with the style you are building and your tmx login on the end, eg. S1-Style-YourTMXLogin (example: S1-Fullspeed-pascow).

5. Upload the track to TMX using the   BASCO2014 account. Password = basco
You cannot edit or remove your track after upload (if you need to please post here).

6. Post a link to your submission in the submissions thread for that stage. (A new thread will open each stage)

7. You may submit one track for each style per stage.

Note: Blockmixing is NOT allowed.

That's all there is to do. After the stage is over we will lock the submissions thread and during the next days we (me+other judges) rate the submissions, while the highest rated will be used further. The process then begins again, a thread for submissions for the next stage will open.

Can you submit an entry if you won a stage already?
No, once you win a stage, you have to sit back and let others compete for the remaining stages. (That counts for every style)

I would love to join Basco, I read all the rules. Some people posted there fs 12-15 sec. what do I do next if I want to build tech or dirt? Can I pick one of them and continue?

The goal is to build 3 tracks. One dirttrack, one techtrack and one speedtrack. You see, there are already submissions for both tech and speed. The winning submissions of each style will be the start of the whole track, what means in stage 2 you have to build further on the winning submissions of stage 1.

If you want to build tech or dirt, just build a start of 12-15 seconds including scenery, upload it on the given acc in the first post, and post it in the submissions thread.

Hope it got clear, if not, ask

Btw for fs i would cut every new part about 2 secs shorter since the later parts are getting increasingly longer due to the speedgain

yea, with 800+ speed 15 secs would need quite a long piece of route

btw great idea (this project )

Another question, After you've made your tracks/stages. If you haven't won, can you use the first part (for example) for a new track?

I need to erase a few blocks to prevent a cut from my entry. Could i do that boss?

It's okay in that case, don't affect the trackroute though, just avoid the cut

Thanks again for all your entries guys. In the Speed- and Dirtcategory I could gather 5 judges each, so the best and the worst scores got erased. In the Techsection there were 4 judges, so no erased scores. I asked my judges to rank the tracks, depending on how many entries there were per style. Means 1-14 for tech, 1-10 for speed and 1-7 for dirt. The highest number is the best track for each judge. Maximum points for speed would be 30, for dirt 21 (because of the erased scores) and 56 for tech.

Thanks a lot to dan!el, devo, wormi, razor, joost and cranberries for judging!

Results Speed:

"S1-Fullspeed-Ad!key by   BASCO2014" - 28 points
S1-Speed-Worm - 23 points

One question, if i think scenery of a winning part is too light for my style, can i add some? Or i can modify scenery only if i want to build my driving route on that scenery block?

Beyond Help!

only if you want to build your driving route on that scenery block.

That also disturbs me a bit on quat's part, but his start was the best. No scenery editing
