There may be more but I couldn't find them.


How to Design a Track

1. Use a program like MS Paint or Photoshop and draw out your track. Make sure there are items and a start line!
2. Upload to an image hosting site like Imageshack or Photobucket and post the link here.
3. Wait for your review!

The tracks will be rated based on the placement of Items, Speed Boosts and obstacles, and will be rated out of 100%


About Scores

0%-24% Pretty terrible, needs a lot of work.
25%-49% Not the worst but still needs a lot of work.
50%-69% Below Par and needs improvement.
70%-79% OK, needs improvement.
80%-89% Great! But 1 or 2 issues.
90%-94% Brilliant! But some little issues lowered the score.
95%+ Perfect! The best a track can get!


The Top 3 from a Previous Thread

1st

Mferrie1- Bowser's Mecha Fcatory- 99% http://s573.photobucket.com/albums/ss17 ... okart4.jpg

Recommendations
  • You could include a description about the track.
  • Put some effort in, the more effort the better the track.
  • Try not to copy other people's ideas. Original one's are generally better.

This is where the results for the competitions will go. Obviously, this will be empty at first, but hopefully it will fill up!

No I would not have, as the old threads have been here and this has nothing to do with the magazine.

Here's my idea:

The forest maze circuit!

Basic, I know, but old school fans would love this!

If you noticed, I'd put Geno in the next game.

There'd be some ? blocks in the log.

Edit 31/8/11: Music to this track would be this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-nu-BnLOq4

Disclaimers:I do not own this music. All credit goes to DJevilstereo on youtube.

Lovely to see this back- its been a while. I'd make a track, but I'm restricted to 3DS browsing, and will most probably be for a rather long time due to my laptop being broken. I will keep an eye on this thread, though, and post a track as soon as I can.
