hi tmx :)

Finally it’s done, what started in july 2011. And the result is… well, you’ll see on your own. Actually it was finished 2 weeks ago, but I wanted to wait a bit for uploading it on my birthday. :)


If you are wondering, what the trackname means – ask google. If you are wondering, why I called the track “principium finis” – there’re 2 answers: firstly latin always sounds more intelligent; secondly I guess (again), this will be my last PX. There’s a simple reason for this. While building this, some awesome PFs have been published these months. But all of them had one thing in common: they all are not perfect. As I realized that, I had to admit, mine isn’t perfect as well. It’s even far away from “perfect”, but maybe closer than most PFs before. Perfect means, each stunt and even each straight would get 10 of 10 points in all categories: speed, smoothness, flow, creativity… I’d give my track that rating:
Speed: 6/10
Smoothness: 5/10
Flow: 7/10
Creativity/Stunts: 5/10
Length: 8/10
Not the best, ofc. If you wanna achieve 10 points everywhere, you probably have to sit for ~11212 attempts for each stunt. That means, building a perfect PF with a length of 60 seconds will take you some centuries or at least decades. And it’s not worth going through that hell.
And that’s the point, why I probably won’t make PX anymore – too frustrating, cause they never will be perfect

When I started working on “princiupium finis”, unlimiter didn’t exist. As I see now, 256³-PFs are the “modern” ones. They will dominate future. PFs inside the stadium are getting rare now. As I f.e. saw “augmented reality” coming out, I was jealous and happy at the same time. Jealous, cause I saw, there was so much space left, where I had to remove 4 of 5 stunts, cause I crashed into already existing blocks or made previous stunts impossible. Happy, cause this is the only challenge left at building PFs: limited space. Make one more stunt, and for the next one you’ll need even more patience. Make stadium full, till you can’t see the ground from above in the end. And that challenge I liked. Those 256³-PFs without limits; that’s too easy. So this track already belongs to “oldschool-PF”, I think. ^.^
And I hope, that you aren’t too fastidious yet after those outside-stadium-PFs, where complex stunts are, of course, a lot easier to create. So even if it’s a flyps-track, I plea you to not increase your expectations to the immeasurable; better compare stadium-PFs with stadium PFs and 256³PFs with 256³PFs.

Now some track statistics:
~ length: 4’21”36
~ distance: 47.201 meters
~ average speed: 650,137741 km/h
~ top speed: 847 km/h
~ copperuse: 21.280
~ building time: 16 months (I didn’t count hours)
~ stunts: 55


A really big THX goes to mastermind for his fantastic intro, that he synchronized with the song “conquest of paradise”, which will load ingame automatically. Again sick job u did here, thx a lot =)
