Then for some reason, completely out of the blue, you get it.. You figure it out.. You're running a 1:14 every other lap! 8)

Love it.

Sick times, you win!

Ref what you said in the gtx thread..

The only thing I find odd is the triples, you can hit them 100% straight and true and you still sometimes end up a bit sideways in the air. This isn't a major problem until you have a big whoops section right after!

I've had this before with jumps but not sure of the cause. Could be the face is at a slight angle as I find the triple after the whoops always spins me left slightly (I think left but it's always the same direction regardless) meaning I have to adjust in the air and straighten up.

Also, in between some of the rhythms the transitions on one or two of them are a bit sharp, I don't mean steep but literally it doesn't look like it's had enough smoothing.

But, these are very minor issues, as we found last night it was very racable, fun batlles, rhythm choices were used. I'd be very disappointed if you didn't make more!

That helps a lot, thanks for taking the time to write it.

I definitely agree with your comments, and I think I have located the causes of them.

One is the "springiness" of the suspension. Whatever slight angle you have, the suspensions tend to increase rather than dampen the rebound of the bike. It's almost impossible to have obstacles at 100% alignment with your rider, so the rear always kicks a tad sideways when the obstacle is very steep - as has to be the case in SX. It gets even worse when suspensions are already doing something before you hit a jump face, which is the case in rhythm sections and after whoops. For reference, the two supercross triples in A1 are exactly the same (copy/paste the section, add a rotation).

The other is 100% my fault. Technically, I have used "building blocks" in Photoshop when making the track, resulting in me smoothing the obstacles (whoever cares, Gaussian Filter) THEN rotating. It seems to mess up slightly with how smooth they end up, probably due to the discreet nature of the scale. I should have (and will) either place THEN use the GF, or do an additional very small GF on the final layout.

Thanks again for the feedback, and glad you guys had fun on it. I'm getting less free time those days to make tracks, but hopefully we'll soon have a range of SX tracks (either from me or others) to make a small SX series.
