Hi everyone.

First of all, thanks to   cranberries for the nice talk we had a while back, for his inspiring help with various beta versions, and finally for cut hunting on this monster. In the end he was fairly confident to say that there are no major shortcuts in the track, but if you feel venturous feel free to attempt to find any.

What can I say. I really wanted to leave Trackmania but the idea behind this track has been popping in my head again and again over the past months, that I eventually had to build it. Now that it's finished, I feel kinda relieved, as if now I can really go.

I had promised   Etidu to include some thoughts about philosophy in my last track. I simply didn't do it, sorry, I don't feel like that anymore - but still, there are a bunch of hidden clips waiting around. Hunt them if you like.

I can't quite find the right words to convince you to try this track. I know that it is very long and demanding, but RPG tracks are popular despite their even longer length. PF's are also usually longer than this track, but they just ask you to hold down a key, while this track will definitely test your skills. Anyway I think it is relatively easy, and anyway it's fully respawnable - by the way, I think that anyone who wants to call himself/herself a trackmania builder should always care about CP placement.

I have a bunch of unreleased other tracks in a folder. On my account page you will find a link and one instruction: do whatever you want.

It's late and I want to go now, so download the track, have a good time and enjoy flying around with cam7. Ciao.

I have been watching some of the replays - especially the slow ones. It's both instructive and fun!

Hi HardDance

I'm not offended at all, even though I think the concept behind the track actually stands out pretty clearly. Starting from the screenshot, where you can see that I really want road and dirt to meet somewhere and blend in a harmonic style. Stadium United, soon after its beginning, has been rigidly separated by the community in "styles" such as tech, platform, dirt, FS, and so on. Especially dirt, in which I've been deeply involved for years, is seen as a separate world in which an element of trial or tech is seen as a heresy. I'm taking my big part of responsibility on this matter - I participated in making dirt a world of its own; but as time passed I was feeling more and more like the community needed to go back to the "start", or rather, look back to the start and recreate lost ideas. You will surely remember "Kwai by   Bajs" that perfectly shows that a blend of styles can only make things better and more fun (hey everyone, try this track, it's brilliant). That is, only if you're ready to accept creativity and play as you played your first TM day: with no expectations. So, back to the screen: tech and dirt are converging in this track aiming to form an organic Stadium once again. Can I ask the interested builders to think about it, and maybe get inspired and follow up?

The lenght... well that's just me, you know!

If i would be better in tech i would build in more tech in my dirtracks. But i'am not so i minimize the techparts in my tracks. I only use tech for better transitions for example. I started in trackmania obviously with tech but i saw that i'am bad at it. So i tried dirt and i loved it.

I decided to upload on my dropbox a small condensed pack of the aforementioned material that I still have unreleased. You'll find the link on my account page. See ya...
