Hello there!

Since the 10 year anniversary of TMN ESWC is drawing closer, I thought it would be cool to celebrate this with a revival of some of the classic tracks of this game, since many people nowadays might not know them. My idea was to make some kind of a mash up, to take the parts I liked most of a few tracks and put them all together. So this track is a mash up of GanjaRider's greatest stuff. It seems pretty easy to do that but it's actually a lot of work to make these different parts of different tracks work out together but I'm quite satisfied with the result.

Why GanjaRider? Well because he is one of the legends of this game, one of the most successful FS mappers ever! 10 tracks, 9 of them classic, over 1500 awards received, that's just amazing. The key to his success was the simplicity of his style, easy finishable FS maps, which were ideal for online play. Simple turns, standard wallrides + loops, some inflatable parts, barely scenery, that pretty much sums up his earlier works. Later he also built some very fast tracks (the Launch I + II) and also more original tracks. I mainly focused on these, since they are probably more interesting for players nowadays than the old ones.

Overview:
- [0-7sec.] The start till first loop: Full Contact.
- [8-22sec.] Pretty long part from the loop till the loop after the inflatable, inverted version of: Quicky Tarmac.
- [22-27sec.] Random turn into wallride, never used by GR in this combination but the turn and of course the wallride can be found in his tracks.
- [27-34sec.] Speedy part with this cool 270° wall: The Launch II.
- [34-38sec.] Again a standard wall, literally in almost every GR track, like Dutch Delight or The Launch II.
- [38-50sec.] again: Full Contact.
- [end]: Random section again. But quite a lot of GR's maps end with an upward finish, so I tried to keep this section true to his style.


Details:
- Length: 53sec.
- CC: ~7400.
- 5 loops, 2 turnovers, 3 wallrides.
- average speed: 500-600 I guess.

Hope you like it!

so many possible SDs/s4ds here... I had a good start but screwed up the 2nd wall and the last turnover -.-

Sick times and LB here! And thanks for all the great responses, it's awesome that oldschool is still so popular.

5x possible for sure and 4x should be possible too after some driving

OMG, it's like driving my own track that I don't remember building. I'm humbly honored by your tribute. I had some tributes before but this is by far the best. The flow is strong in this one!

I'm not kidding, I woke up with a start this morning with this thought that I totally missed the transitional sd train and people erased me from tm history (yes I'm still thát obsessed with the game). So when I found your track, you made my day. Seems like I still had some influence on the game at some point in time. So thanks for that.

Ps. the end reminds me of the end in Snowburger so I call it valid.

Cheers a bunch!
GanjaRider.


Also sick time quantum|chrisor

To hard for a GanjaRider styled map, would have been more fun if it was easy like the old Ganja maps.

nice mashup

Oh god, oh you... I'm deeply fond of good old fullspeeder from the TMN era. I almost recognized all the parts and they made me felt melancholic. I love it, really. I'm a bit tired right know but I need to make a better time. Oh god I love you. Oh wait nope... I was hoping to see a super-stylish Intro with the terrible old TMN FS effects: wide angle, close-deformed-car, shiny texts... and why not a GPS even if it's quite useless here.

First, I just saw a solid oldschool fullspeeder, but after a while I detected more and more parts transferred from GanjaRider into one map. Really cool idea, also due to the tm eswc anniversary this year. I think I would never get those ideas and you managed to connect the pieces without any visible transition, but therefore with a lot of art and great routes. Well done on this
