The fourth stop on the five element series takes you to the rooftops of a futuristic far east city.

The race begins in a rooftop garden

Hang a sharp right as you land on the helipad and take the sky bridge to a massive office building.

Blast through office hallways.  A shortcut will open for those that fall far behind.

The sky bridge is under construction.  Make a detour through unfinished skyscrapers.

Loop around the shrine.  Racers that are behind can cut across the front of the shrine when the shortcut opens.

Down to the smelting furnace.

These doors open when activated.  Be careful or you'll be melted down!

 

Hope you all enjoy :smileyvery-happy:

Re: New Track: Wu Xing Metal Shrine

Played this last night - great course! For the last section where you can hop over the left or right vents instead of going through the middle - is there any advantage to taking the right vent? Seemed to just direct me to flying off the building - unsure if there's a shortcut or not that I was missing.  Left vent is definately advantageous.

Thanks everyone.

 

@MylesG: There is no real advantage to the right path other than getting boost in addition to an item pod.  When I go that way I land with enough room to turn, just hold off on the urge to jump as you hit the vents cuz that could send you flying higher.  I mostly made that path just for symetry, though :smileywink:. You forfeit an item pod by going left.

 

@Prob_Alex: Yeah, that first right turn is very quick.  I put up arrows before the jump, but most people are going to turn to slowly their first time.  Hopefully that doesnt turn people off.  Glad you like the track :smileyvery-happy:

Re: New Track: Wu Xing Metal Shrine

Just raced this track Argo!!  Very nice work!!  I like the variety of surfaces and the glass tubes were the first I raced through (I take it these came from the Moon pack).  Near the end there was short cut with some pop up blockers in front of the entry.  I am not sure if there is a trigger somewhere, but I couldn't seem to set it off.  I assume you set it on automatic intervals.  I was curious, so I waited for it to let me in.  :smileyvery-happy:    Keep up the great work!!

Re: New Track: Wu Xing Metal Shrine

If you're talking about the one that cuts across the shrine, it opens when a kart enters an invisible region at the halfway point of the 3 quarter circle :smileyhappy:
