Hi all,

today iīm proud to present you my first Level i ever made... Gingerbread Winterland.
Take a seat in your brandnew Highspeed-Sled "Neckbreaker 1000" and enjoy your journey through Gingerbread Winterland. A coustomized kart is waiting for you and maybe you have fun with my handmade weapons... the Snowballs of Headache, the Present of Terror, the Snowman of death and Rudi, the rapid Reindeer.
If you have any critic or not... feel free to leave your comments.

Greetings... Meribald

The pictures here don't lie, it looks really nice. But I do have some gameplay gripes:
I got shot down while being launched over the village, and I respawned down below in the village facing a steep hill. That set me back a lot. You might want to change that part into no-spawn road.
Even though I was far behind position 7, I kept getting mostly missiles from the weaponators, so I was unable to catch up. I would have liked to see some fast forwards in there.

Also, that music... Holiday For Strings. It's not really your fault, I suppose it's the season and all, but it's getting rather overused. :p

To me, personally,The Riviera Affair/Prestige Production (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjRDFDFpYqg) fits much better as a winter-type racetrack song than Holiday For Strings. Reason being is that it sounds similar to the Frappe Snowland theme from Mario Kart 64 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WSqi8I9Fls). When I make a winter-themed track, I will use The Riviera Affair as its music.

I love the holiday for strings music. But I don't think it fits the seasonal vibe. I listen to music like that normally lol. I wish we had more of the kind.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a nice song. In fact, I was going to use it for a level for a sort of 50s vibe. But I hear it so often, especially on wintery tracks, that it's putting me off.

@ Rogar...

Thanks for your helpful feedback.
At Moment iīve got less of time but i want to republish my Level between Christmas and New Year with some changes. Unfortunately my Thermomether is nearly complete full and so i need to remove some decoration. At moment it produce strange bugs when i set the part of the road you mean to a no-spwan road (when thermometer is below 85% it is much better).
I change the chance you get a fast reindeer to following rates.... 8th Place 50%, 7th Place 45%, 6th Place 35%... so i think there is a better chance to catch up.

Hi Meribald, nice level! I played it yesterday afternoon. It looks really nice, the gingerbread houses look edible and delicious! the only trouble I had was hitting the yellow lights that were placed on the edge of the track in places, they are low enough that they can stop a kart dead which kills the fun. Maybe lift them slightly so they aren't in the way?

Nice track though, a jolly seasonal vibe!

Hey all,

a few minutes ago i published an updated version of my Level for a bugfix and to add any small changes...

- now you can see a short Introsequence
- if you are on playce 6-8 your chance to get a fast-reindeer is now much higher
- i replaced the lights around the track, they souldnīt stop your kart now
- i set the Area around the village into a no-spawn road... unfortunately the first few meters after jumping i couldnīt set into no-spwan raod because the game produced always strange terrain-bugs
