I think this topic can be as hard as you want it to be - in theory you could have a 4x4 flat platform area with some scenery above it that keeps on coming back throughout the track

And I agree Sky! Tech tracks are also a good example IMO. You often see 'standard' block combinations used multiple times throughout the track
It's a cool, but tricky theme if you want to be creative. You really have to take a bit of time to find a suitable 4x4 area in that case.

Somehow it reminds me of a theme back in 2010(!) on Trackmania United Exchange

You had to use a 6-block combination 4 times in your track... That might have been even harder.

1. Does it mean i can just build a normal track with 4³-objects that appears 4+ times in my track?

2. Or does it mean my track can only consist of those 4³-objects?

2.1. If so, does scenery count?

1. No, you build a 4x4x4 area how you like it. You copy this 4 times (if you want to you can rotate it) And drive through these copies at least once.

2. No.

2.1 If you build more, put it all over the scenery or do some other stuff i havent thought about yet, then that goes into the creativity of the track.

so i just build a 4x4x4 area, copy it 4+ times and connect it with more or less normal trackparts?

This seems right.

Your map has no restrictions outside the 4x4x4 areas. Your path just needs to go through 4 of these copy areas.

Hey, just want some clarification.
Pic below has my 4x4x4 thingo (on the left), i have regular dirt blocks and regular road blocks on the edges - is it fine if they join to something else outside of the 4x4x4 area? (example on the right)

@Maffeyo

I have not really thought about this before, but unfortunately, no, this is not fine.
The 4x4x4 area needs to be an exact copy (with the exception of rotation), so if you have blocks attached on the outside, attach blocks on the outside of each area (you can attach different blocks, as long as the road/dirt in your area becomes the same version in your area.)

Oof, probably shouldn't have mapped much further before knowing that.
Thanks for the clarification

Two questions:
I guess a re-use of a section (drive through the 4×4×4 area again) does not make it count a second time?

Also, is mirroring allowed? So flipping the whole area?

the resuse does not count a second time

but it can be mirrored
