Just downloaded it and looked, what is a sky scraper doing there? Otherwise this looks really interesting...
Oh and just checking, we can't use any other concrete blocks, just the seaside ones... right?

Finished my track and came to the forum to see what's going on with the challenge and read these:
"2 - sliding platforms - only use these 2" - I angled them, does that mean that my track is disqualified?
"boost pads/ pick ups puddles invisible triggers, blockers, knock overable props are all allowed on your own accord." - the bold ones were not in the original challenge and I didn't use any of those cause in the original challenge it said "Only these props are to be used. nothing else.." referring to only use the ones not bolded and the original list that had 2 mega jumps.
"Chevrons are allowed only to direct the path..." - I thought that not using anything outside the original list was the challenge so I made my track very intuitive and didn't use any chevrons.
IMO, adding all these extra props diminishes the challenge. It also can be unfair to the ones that like me finished the track (or are very close to) based on the original rules.

Please don't get me wrong. I don't feel bad or anything close to that (written communication can mislead sometimes and I should have done a better job, sorry).
I had a lot of fun working on my track and enjoyed the challenge of making it "chevron independent". As for blocks, well, I wish I had known it earlier... I may add some just as an addition to the track, but it's too late to add them to close paths or anything similar.
I found it extremely challenging to use all the props. It's hard to combine all of them in a single track as some of them just don't fit together. So I have a question that may be other's question as well. Were (are) we supposed to use each prop at least once? (I did it, but that may have been only my assumption)

95% done with mine, looking good and only 40% of the budget used! I think there's about 4 props I haven't even found a use for, so in total I'm using about 17 props? Still, it's as detailed as any of my other tracks, this was a fun challenge!
Btw, can we publish them now? I notice macAttack8000 already has his up... I'm not bothered about people stealing my ideas, I make all my ath_racing stuff remixable anyway, so if they wanted they could just pop into the editor and have a good gander
