When I first played prob_alex's MnR Rally series, I was amazed by the simpicity, that had such great effect on my, of just whole landscapes with a track peacefully flowing through them. I also, unfortunately, did not like the lack of shortcuts, and I know that defeats the point of a rally, but It just doesn't feel like an MnR race without them (No Offence prob.). After my recent experiences in Croatia, I decided to make a track about it, so I got Prob's permission, and set to work creating the 4th MnR rally, shortcuts included! So, here is MnR Rally-Croatia!
The Track starts along the coastline, by the cliffside boundary of Paklenica (Pack-len-ee-ca) National Park.
In the park, you will encounter many lakes and rivers, such as the Zrmanja (Zer-Man-Jar)River...
...along with gushing and spectacular waterfalls, and...
...fast flowing rapids, that you actually drive on, thanks to the croatian rafting company, Raftrek.
There are also a few cave tunnels, still filled with plantlife.
Somewhere, there is a small mountain hut, where they keep a donkey at all times, as they are said to be good luck!
This small, secret valley is quite enjoyable if you race through it!
Appropriately, the final picture I have for you is in the last stretch of the track, through a small vilage, called Novigrad (Nov-ee-grad), where the people are eagerly watching.
This track has been one of the tracks I have most enjoyed creating, probably beacause it is based on my time in the country, but I hope you also enjoy this track, and a race in the experiences of Me! (Yes, I know it is exiting )
(Oh yeah, just won 100 times (Quite a feat for me, given as I don't race online that much!))

It's a beautiful track for sure, but a few things worth checking.
Firstly, INVISABLE WALLS!! I ran into a couple of these, mostly right next to boulders sunk into the ground. Invisible hitboxes for boulders are a huge pain... see if you can fix them.
Secondly, not sure if it's just my PS3, but I got framerate drops... So I'd like to know if anyone else is getting them.
Thirdly, on the shortcut with the marinas (cool shortcut btw), your marinas are having siezures. This happens with many of your tracks. By simply raising or lowering each one slightly you won't get this problem.
Also, check your driving on water section. There is a rock that sticks out infront of the first shortcut that sends you flying up into the air!
Other than that I thought it was a visually stunning track, I would give it 5* but these issues were really game breaking for me...
I especially liked the shortcuts, very creative, but that being siad Iove how MNR rallies fon't have shortcuts. Both are great imo.

Okaay, I thought I had resolved the hitboxes problem. Where did you experience them? Also, I didn't experience much framerate drop. There seems to be alot of talk about it mostly being causes by racing immediately after creating a track.

These pictures are stunning track looks brilliantly designed and the colours go really well...
but... Shortcuts on a rally track.. I.M.O defeats the purpose of calling it a rally track..
its like going into a restraunt and asking for apple pie... and being given blackberry crumble because thats what the chef prefers..
but this is only my opinion and this is your track.. and it looks brilliant.

The new option is up, and one with no shortcuts is coming soon!
I mean; The new one without hitboxes is up, and one with no shortcuts is coming soon!

I raced this today with you, I got huge framerate drops, which in general made it very hard and I was going very slow...

I don't know why you got these. No one else seemed to.
