Hey everyone just published my first level. As the title says its all about drifting. There's no shortcuts or weapons Drift as much as you can for as long as you can! Hitting other players and walls messes up your drift so be careful. Finishing first won't win you the contest. The bots are on expert level and they are hard lol. Hope you have fun and good luck.

You can use this tutorial (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?75674-How-to-Add-Snapshots-from-Your-Level-to-a-Post) to see how to embed pictures in your post like this:


You have pretty much done everything. Just skip to the part of the tutorial that talks about how to post the picture from karting.lbp.me to a forum post correctly :)

Ok, so let's talk about the actual level now :)

I really liked this level. It was by far the most drivable level I have played yet. This is my 6th or 7th community level tonight, and it is the first one where there was not a single second of irritation. It feels like every turn is well thought out and it is a pleasure to power slide.

In fact, I was doing a fine job fighting with first place, and then I decided to see what happened when I drove off the course. It was after this that I realized that it is nearly impossible to catch up once you fall off. I drove a perfect race after a single fall and I still remained in 8th place the rest of the race. I think the reason for this is that you didn't use any weapons at all. Is there a reason for this? I know that I don't like to be dying all the time in a level, so I like it when creators don't use killing items, but that doesn't mean you can't use the punching glove, paintanator, and Fast Forward to help a player out if they fall behind. I think that this would be something very good to take into consideration for future levels since I couldn't catch up even when running a perfect rest of the lap.

As for the look of the level, it is excellent. You have done the best job with terraforming that I have seen in a community level. Great job with that, and the decorations and track type work really well together!

Though the music isn't bad, it didn't seem to really fit with the theme, but that is completely your call. I just wanted to mention that it didn't feel like a good match to me :)

Excellent job with this level. It is one of my favorite community levels so far because it looked great and drove even better!

The track seems to be very well constructed and is good to drive... it feels "fluently" (don't know if the word describes it very well but that's what came to my mind first^^) But i think your level lacks of details... decorations and stuff ;)

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

First off to Amazingflyingpoo its hard to catch up because the bots are on expert level. Sorry its so hard but I wanted it to be a real challenge. I have a hard time getting out of 8th place myself lol. I didn't want any weapons because I felt that it would take away from the main theme of drifting. Also getting first doesn't matter to much as its a score race and not a time race. Plus I think that the boxing glove and fast forward are incredibly glitchy and in a lot of scenarios they don't do much in the end. I didn't feel the music fit to well either but I had a hard time picking one that did and just choose that one. Thank you for the I depth feedback!

Second to chup. I honestly have a hard time with putting a lot of time into decorating a level. I try at it but it becomes to tedious and frustrating so I do what I can take then do a bit more later till I feel it's enough. Ill try better in future tracks. Thank you!
