Hello there, ,



it's been a while, my last PF "[PF] Augmented Dankness" is already over 3 years old. Felt like I would never finish this track, but here we are.
I've started working on Flatlands right after I finished Katharsis back in 2016, I always loved building close to the ground, so I decided to make a PF centered more around it.
While I feel like it's not as "grounded" as it could be, I still think it fits the theme. After I made a few stunts I felt like this could become my next big project, but I never thought this would take 4,5 years...
Apparently it's also the 6th anniversary of "[PF]Broken Void", my last oversized PF. What a coincidence


I want to personally thank   ThunderClap448 for always pushing me to make this as big as possible. I heard "15 minutes or bust" on a daily basis from him. Well it's not quite 15, hope you can forgive me <3
Also thanks for the guest part from 9:58 to 10:10

Now, Flatlands is 13:24.40 long, and anything after 11 minutes was a pain in the rear as good old TMUF is not really made for these kind of dimensions.
Let's not talk about the constant crashes, especially while building its scenery....
I finished the route in mid april and worked on the scenery every now and then, never thought that part would take ~3 months...

Map size is 128³ so you'll need TMUnlimiter to play (duh)
As expected, there are many, many blocks... Map weight is 87k cc , if you're actually able to play this map without any crashes, I shall call you a god.
My experience with this track might be the final trigger for me to switch to TM², since you can throw anything at it and still keep your frames.

Now if you want a more stable experience, here's the no scenery version.

Big thanks to Dulje for that amazing screen

And thanks to the TMDudes gang for all your support <3

It's been so much fun being part of the TM community for almost a decade, I hope I'll be able to continue making these maps, we'll see what the future holds.

Am I the only one thining how ridiculously unbelievable it is how, as simo stated, there's absolutely 0 drop of quality, WHEREAS I don't even manage to keep my quality on-level after the map reaches 30 seconds of length? xd
  ThunderClap448 15-Aug-2020
Now that we have epic track award winner, let's just skip it this year lmao
  Dule 15-Aug-2020
TMdudes return when??

/e: I really dislike the screen.. somehow it looks bad on small version xd
  ThunderClap448 15-Aug-2020
@Dule I mean it's only fitting. VAE is back with this fuckin beast, Bombi recently came back too... what's next?
  VomAdminEditiert 15-Aug-2020
@Dule yeah the small screen doesn't do it justice, but the full res version is beautiful imo
  Dule 15-Aug-2020
I don't like the font.. somehow it doesn't fit nicely ;s
  Umpro 15-Aug-2020
imagine this hits 50 awards (seems reachable tho lol)
  ThunderClap448 15-Aug-2020
50... unreachable? Think twice. This is one of the only PFs in the last few years and it's by far the best. I wouldn't be surprised if it neared 100.
  WhySoSerious? 15-Aug-2020
This is why the game needs that flying start respawn like in the new one, idk if those guys that made unlimiter and 1.3 can do something like that.
  ThunderClap448 15-Aug-2020
It would be good but I'm not sure if it's possible in its engine. It might be a bit more complicated state management than it can handle, which could prove itself to be buggy on larger maps where it would have to write the data into RAM rather than a more permanent storage, and depending on how many variables there are, it could have issues with going past the current limit it can use.

let`s just hope they add (way) more blocks to tm2020 and move to that game for PFing
  ZoggeR 16-Aug-2020

  Dule 17-Aug-2020
Had to update the screen because it was ugly in my eyes
