Unsure of level title, hence the question mark and still work in progress.

A short description of my current progress....

Have created a rolling horizon (neverending).

Alien attack craft currently WIP although most designed, just adjusting movements.

Asteroids built and will be completely randomly generated so each playthrough will be different. Also working on their destruction effects. Not quite there yet!

Boss alien craft yet to be fully 'fleshed out', but they will be formidable!

Spacecraft kart built (pics below), yes, Sackboy is visible inside the cockpit whilst playing, but not on pics unfortunately)

Spacekart looks great. Looks like a Wipeout car. I think there is only one rolling never-ending level on lbpkarting. This would be the second one.=D>

I think your talking about Sack Wars. Really solid level.

I hope this one is as good. I have much more movement with the kart on mine I think. You have the ability to obviously move left/right as per their level, but with mine also up/down and 'evasive' maneuvers similar to the barrel roll but not. You'll have to play it to understand fully but all of these movements can be linked together to produce some impressive twists and turns.

I've also included the abilty to change speeds for those players after really high scores or just to see how many times they can crash.

There is also a shield surrounding the spacecraft which will protect you from a limited amount of hits.

Weapon pickups will increase your firepower, imperative for the more aggressive alien attacks.

Solid level indeed but I was thinking about Hot Pursuit from Cdub0817

With the description you gave, sure that it would be a good level too.

After much tinkering (following advice from some very clever Karting Sackfolk) I've had to reconfigure the weapon pickup/giver.

Looks like a constraint to the the amount of emitters you can layer, ie make a custom weapon and use that weapon again within another weapon. Hope that makes sense Sackfolk.

I now have 3 weapon emitters attached directly to the kart which all work correctly dependent on how many 'weapon upgrade pickups' you have collected during the level.

Coming up against loads of glitches with this level. No idea what's causing it. There's nothing really complex going on. Even the kart has developed issues and it's mostly decorations, not material.

I may shelve this for a while whilst I continue with my Tutensackmun sequel.

What did I read? A tutensackmun sequel B-).
One of the first level from you that I have played, which made me become a fan. Cooooool

That's sad news, its tough when the glitches start happening. You wanna toss out some of them here and see if anyone has a solution or work around?

Good to hear about tutensackmun, that was a fun level. Tough puzzles.

Appreciate the offer for help, I'm not sure it's anything other than the program being awkward. It's just beginning to wear a little thin though, so rather than get annoyed with it, I'll just put it to one side for now.

Yes.There is be a Tutensackmun sequel. That's always been the plan. Especially now I believe I have a better grasp of the do's and don't s since building the original, i should be able to make this a much bigger level with multiple routes to create a little more replayability.

That sounds epic. However, a word to the wise, don't overshoot your ambition, I'm learning to build a simpler level and adding cool features after the basic level is in. I've been spurned by glitches and thermo too many times and I would guess you're right there with me on that.
