GR's Journal.

January 27th 2006. TrackMania Nations is released. I run the game and just seeing the menu gives me goosebumps. I'm exited about seeing the 7th environment for TrackMania. I join a server to get some online experience and after an hour I decide to hit the editor and just start building. With my latest Island track Fir3$tarter fresh in mind I'm trying to build something simular: full speed. I notice the physics are different from Island. You hardly slide in Nations! I'm thinking this will never work for full speed. But after a few days and 25 hours of building I reach the finish and to my surprise it does work! I can drive my car from start to finish without releasing the acceleration button and without sliding, unlike in Island. A full speed Stadium track is born! I had never seen this before. I invented Stadium FS all by myself! ... Uhm yeah well, then I notice that some guy called Panis *sarcasm* also made an FS track ... BUMMER! But then I think to myself, hey it's still my own little invention and no one will steal the smile off my face. On February 2nd 2006 I released Dutch Delight. The rest is history...

April 16th 2008. TrackMania Nations Forever is released. I decide not to build a track right away to make room for new talented builders to end up in the All time favs, not knowing it will be crowded with Px tracks. At the same time my WoW addiction is killing my trackbuilding ambition so months go by without touching the track editor. Summer 2008. I start realizing my old tracks on TMNX are fading away from new public. I also miss the attention that I still got from late awarders and I miss the fame I've so gotten used to. So I start foreverizing all my old tracks so they won't be forgotten. A few months later I'm done with all tracks but my WoW addiction kicks in again and I'm not bothered finishing post production like screenies and author times.

November 30th 2009. 1.5 years and only 2 Forever tracks and 1 Foreverized track (Black Velvet) later I realize I've missed alot of Nations Forever and I still have alot of catching up to do. I've quit WoW last month and my trackbuilding ambition is itching again. I decide to finish my foreverize project and will release 6 more tracks in the next weeks/months. Maybe next year I'll make another hit track like in the old days or maybe I've lost my touch. Time will tell...

End of Journal.

About Dutch Delight Forever.

Dutch Delight was my first track for Nations and it has some mistakes so I had to tune this track the most of all tracks. I have heard people say they liked some rough parts in the old track. This new version is smoother but I kept in the short drops where the inflatables were to keep close to the original. But hey, if you don't like it you can still drive the original ofcourse (if you're not totally bored with it already)

Hello Ganja.
was interesting to read your Journal:) it's funny-from him I learned that YOU invented fs TMN
...so what i want to say.
Me will not be awards, because this is worse a remake of the original
-he is not much smoother.
I do not think that this track will once again plunge you in the glory
And I think he will bring as many awards as previously
and if you want to back the glory
you need to finish the mold remakes and do something new
you're just standing on the spot .... do it for us as you did when you Dutch Delight-Brown Stains-Black velvet-The Launch et c. ..
Press Forward GR!
[sorry 4 my english]

Let's get this straight. You heard Panis say he thinks I invented FS? Mmh I doubt it. The wheel is also invented by different people at the same time. We'll never know who was first.
And I made these remakes for fun not for glory. Plus I want all my Stadium tracks in one place.

Have they not in one place? is not whether ?--->http://nations.tm-exchange.com/

btw : pb on old version is .57 not .58 drove 5 minutes ago this Time at Rounds
  sj@tmn 05-Dec-2009
It would surprise me if you had lost "the touch".

Though my longes tm-break ever lasted for only 6 months I hope you'll find it back soon and that you can start releasing those creative masterpieces you used to make, suchs as Sticky Tarmac or Black Velvet; or even Black Hawk (or was it night hawk? yea, your popularity really is fading ).

I will not award the map again, but its a nice remake much better than BlackVelvet FE in my opinion and also better than the remake of GreenRACER
  Djoszee 24-Dec-2010
It's a nice update, but the night mood totally killed the green vibe of the track
I'm 0.08 away from a top10 time

Hey Ganja,
nice track, really nice! I like it much more than the "old" one! It's definitly a very smooth one and I don't miss the trick
My time is not the limit for sure, but there are specialists for fs-tracks

In the end, a really nice remake of your classic, better than the original in my opinion!

Keep building!!!
User Award   ZoggeR 01-Dec-2009
Gosh the Scenery is ugly
but the track itself brings back some memories
it's quite easy and fun and still has this remarkable flow
So all in all a great remake with the usual bugs and not-so-nice parts and that lovely feeling of the old time

much better than the old version, which i dont like...
User Award   oNio 05-Dec-2009
i think its a nice track but with such plattforms
out of forever the tricky factor isn't there which
made the track to an amazing track...

pb @ the oldschool: 43.50
User Award   hotseason 12-Dec-2009
Ok this FE I really really like.
When I saw it I didn't think the original could be improved on. I was wrong. It feels exactly like the old DD but is smoother.
I love it!!
