Hang On Time

Creator's Comments

My 5th MCM 1 National track was Hang On. It was constructed using a different approach. I made a dispmap that contained a series of gradients. It then used ASCEdit to overlay a special MCM 1 SX track that I had created specifically to overlay the gradiants. I then chopped it up, rotated the pieces, and put them back together in a way that I thought worked well. I liked the way it turned out. It had horrible textures and was a little rough, but it was different. It had some serious elevation changes. Hang Time was the first track that I ever converted to MCM 2. I actually did it over a year ago and never released it. I played with converting Hang On about 6 months ago and didn't release it. One day I was looking at both dispmaps at the same time and I thought that it would be neat to try to connect them. They were contructed so differently and they were quite different in feel. I didn't think it would work out.

The tough part in connecting them was to get them both to the same scale, ASCEdit came to the rescue and let me quickly make them the same scale. I had to fix the edges on both of them to get them to match up. Armadillo still had a problem with wanting to leave a white line where the disp maps met, even in the latest version of Armadillo. I had to put walls to cover the white lines up.

After a little smoothing of Hang On and a little roughing up of Hang Time the join was complete and the track was on it's way.

I didn't want to clutter this up with stock objects. I looked for some interesting custom ones and didn't find any that I thought would fit, so I am leaving this with just trees and a few fences.

Thanks to Keith (TNT_Gravy) for suggesting the name. I was going to call it Hang On 2 (quite boring). He suggesting Hang On Time and it's a perfect marriage of both tracks.

I hope you enjoy.
