Here we go again: this is Skating on Art II. Challenge: Build a track using only Sculpture elements for the route, specifically only 8-2-4/5/6/7.
So this time I restricted myself to using only 4 different blocks in total. Is it still possible with such a theme to build a decent, diverse track with smooth transitions, that is fun to play? Hell yeah, it is!

The idea to make a sequel to "Skating on Art" which was released in january 2015 came to me when I saw superJu's track "SculpField" which was inspired itself by Skating on Art. I remembered how much fun I had building this track and I wanted to make the sequel smoother, more diverse, superior and better in every aspect compared to the first track - and I think I succeeded.

The route: It's pretty easy to build with these 4 blocks if you go downhill since you have many combinations of drops of different heights, which all can work out smoothly. The question is: when you've reached the bottom, how do you get up again? That was pretty difficult if you don't want to use the same combination (8-2-6/7) all over the place but I think I came up with some good transitions, especially the little jump upwards at ~23 sec. and the mixed (third) sculpture at the two upward drifts at the end, which creates a smooth transition between the two opposed sculptures.

The scenery: I experimented with various concepts here and in the end decided to go along with this massive platform beneath the sculptures. As you know, the grass keeps being attached to the sculpture when you place it in the air, which looks horrible no matter from which side. The platforms hide the grass (also some of the flickering grass, caused by mixing platforms). Additionally the combination of platforms and sculpture looks very interesting and they also add to the whole "skate(park)" theme. You might say, this track looks so monotone: I thought about adding some colors which inflatables would be best suited for, but a) it didn't fit to the "clean" design and the skate/art theme b) it would get very confusing while driving and there shouldn't be anything that distracts you from the route.

- Length: ~41 sec.
- Mood: Day.
- CC: ~4100.
- Intro Please watch!

Screen by   AR »Trian. It fits the art-theme perfectly, thank you very much!

That's it! I hope you enjoy the track, and as always, don't forget to post your replay and leave some feedback, no matter if it's positive or negative!

it is
I had to drive with cam 2 which isn't easy when you're used to cam 1 ^^
  wormi 09-Nov-2015
Unplayable with cam 1 as the camera doesn't stay even close the car xD And I suck driving with cam 2 or 3.. seems like a nice map but sorry, can't drive it without rage as I can't see forward ^^
  mr.hubby 10-Nov-2015
I asked because it is basically unfinishable in cam1 or cam3 :>
  !k7 26-Nov-2015
I'm used to cam 2 so np to be able to finish.

I would have also liked to see a replay made with the Media tracker. That would have been probably interesting to see

I´m still trying..for now a .53. I just changed a bit my driving line, rest was not really better compared to my previous time
I even failed -0.19 against my .53 run seconds before the finish. Hunting this is so painful but i can´t stop because my brain tells me: "c'mon you can do better"^^ I´d say low .2x is possible but not for humans
  aiden.KraL' 27-Nov-2015
Wow you're still hunting Unbelievable man
