FrostOpolis
An alien city in the realm of ice




... Frostopolis architecture is very unique, bold, yet strangely familliar. Most of its structures are circle shaped, and indeed that symbol once played an important role for its civilization.

... In the middle of the city lays an enourmous gem, a golden relic of quartz, which likely sprouted the city's origin in this forgotten land.

... Its peripheral area includes monuments of dazzling height, howling towers of glass and a complex system of trails.

... Now the city lays in frost, & albeit its remnants have rested yonder for many years, they have shown very little sign of decay, for they are not made by material known to men.

... Not much was ever known about Frostopolis but perhaps its mysteries can be discovered by those who seek the answer.

... and with that hello
& welcome to my latest creation.


With this track I tried to create something that's easy and driveable for everyone. I actually had a lot of fun driving the track myself, which is something quite rare. It features very few transitions, numerous wide turns and a variety of loops, all of which contribute to its main purpose. That being said the later stages of the track need a little practise to get right, but after you learned them they are exceptionally reliable and consistent to drive as well.


The scenery is probably one of my best works yet. It's more uniform, smoother than ever and still has alot of height and abstract combinations to discover. To experience it at its finest I highly recommend computing the shadows, as it smoothens out everything by a lot.


The name came to mind as I was building the scenery. Driving the first platform section after the ramp made me feel like I was entering a huge city, and thus I came up with this name. I actually like it a lot, since it captures both the cristmas theme, as well as the city reference I was mentioning earlier. ( Also it's a reference to   SapphiroN's latest track, Xenopolis )


The screenshot was made by   dan!el, who did a great job capturing a fantastic angle of one of my fav. sections of the track along with the exact atmosphere I wanted. Thanks for that mate. Big thanks that is.

Since it's christmas I'd like to hand out this little gift in form of a showcase to a track that definitely needs more recognition.

TOMBLANDS by   devo.


So, that's about it. Christmas is almost here now, only 3 days remain until the CCP reaches it's finale and I'm super exited for that. The CCP is (like I said last year already) probably my fav. project on TMX and I'm very glad we had another great year celebrating the pre-christmas time and enjoying many high quality tracks while doing so.


I certainly hope we'll continuously have this event and want to sincerely thank everyone involved in this project. You're all really f'cking awesome.


- Merry Christmas.

YouTube!

Like the track!

i wish me one more little ramp after the first loop on the right side...and that you delete the fake fake finish before the last loop!
rest is really awesome and the scenery is very great!
  Dom. 21-Dec-2014
brilliant run, switch!

Btw, when you are expressing the genitive of "it", it's "its" and not "it's"
  vneck 22-Dec-2014
aw thanks zogger, fixed

Also big thanks for the awards, comments, replays & the video, very much appreciated!
Btw; that with the city feeling was much more visible in earlier versions. With more signs and an additional layer of scenery I added lateron it doesn't look that much like a city anymore I agree... But I kept the name and the stuff I had in mind, so yeah ^^

ah come on
now we should be good.

the second loop is a killer -.-
  Switch 22-Dec-2014
noticed that, too. but those loops always are^^

That block on the ground before the 2nd loop, it ruins the track to me. It adds nothing to the track, except a lot more bugs. I don't understand why you didn't just place a normal block there.
btw I lost 0.1 at the end of my run.

well, I've got a lot to say about this one, so I'll try to be short ^^ the good things: it's a great track for speed dirt sliding if there is such a thing ... it pushed me to hunt it more just for a few extra hundredths of a second, and eventually breaking the AT ^^ so I guess it's cool for hunting ... but the bad things: it often felt bumpy or it bugged, some of the sections were in between speed sliding or not speed sliding grey area -,- which I don't particularly enjoy ... the scenery, which gets many high praise, I think it's not really that well made (most of the detailed stuff happens far from the track, but doesn't necessarily give a city - metropolis - feel to me) ... it's a very subjective area, this -,- so nvm ... but also the finish itself, such a turnoff -,- especially while learning the track, it could have used an extra block, just to give it a little more reliability ^^ ... anyways, dunno if this helps, but I hope you don't mind a little criticism ... but overall, I decided to award it, only because it made me hunt a little bit more than I usually do

... keep playing Forever!

I wasn't sure whether I should award this one or not, because the route is too slow imo. The scenery is so sick that I think it's enough for an award tho.
