Just played this and it was really, really fun. Lots of speed on the track, a good mix of jumps and driftable areas for boosts. The custom speed booster was a nice touch, though i wondered why you hadn't done something similar with the weaponizers as well. The only very slight complaint i might have is that it can be pretty tough to get into the branched route (with the giant chainsaw thing) without hitting the wall and losing speed...though i think that may be entirely on my driving skill, as opposed to your design.

One thing i wanted to particularly point out was the setting & presentation here (something that has been a bit of a hobgoblin for me since back in LBP1). i think you did a really great job of making the scenery (a) well developed and knit together, and (b) close without making the track feel crowded. Something i've noticed with a lot of online tracks i've played (including mine, shamefully enough) is how empty and kinda disconnected from a world they can feel. There was nothing like that feeling with yours.

A great, fun job, und zo a well deserved heart and thumbs-upskis.

Awesome, I am really glad you liked it. I will definitely take a look at the branch and see if I can make it a little bit more accessible. Thanks a lot for the play and all the great comments/suggestions.

Great level, love the circular saw and the huge amount of detail.

My only quibble, and it's a minor thing, is that the short-cut is a little TOO short; even hitting the sawblade I still managed to make up places on the karts going the main way, making that whole section of track a little moot.

EDIT: As a possible way of overcoming this, you could add another saw right at the entrance to the shortcut, blocking it off at certain intervals.

Yeah I will definitely look into this. Thank you for the suggestion!
