Since I'm responsible for the tracks, guess this is where I can chime in...
Would be interested in hearing what you mean by "flat," maybe not here but if you care to provide more info feel free to shoot me a PM. As Ruben said, every obstacle is essentially shaped the same as previous rounds with tweaking to fit the layout (maybe a 5-10% opacity difference in the same layer between rounds, at most? Honestly don't know off the top of my head). The triple in this round is actually taller than the 2nd triple in the prior round, and the step-on-off's are the same heights, as well as the other jumps having nearly the same peak heights. In fact, the entry single into the first section on this week's track compared to last weeks is around .5ft taller. Not pointing this out to say your wrong, just trying to explain the way I'm interpreting your comment, so I'd love to get some more feedback on this specific issue. That said, your definition of a "flat track" may differ from mine, so maybe you're talking about the transition between jumps being too smooth?. Generally speaking, I'm very happy to hear most are enjoying round 4, and I hope you've had a bit of fun on them as well, Dennis. It has personally been enjoyable putting these together for you guys to race on, something which obviously wouldn't have happened without the great support of Tizz and the rest of the EMF crew.
As it relates to this week, for what it's worth, I do want to extend my appreciation to a couple of guys specifically (beyond Tizz, who is obviously instrumental to the entire EMF operation staying up and running). Ruben stepped up and put time into this overlay when it wasn't asked of him, and I think it is a step in the right direction for these tracks, really appreciated the pro-active approach he took to assisting the build. I also somehow guilted Storken into taking a few minutes to ride the track pre-release and provide feedback, which turned into a 2 page write up that was immensely helpful and reassuring. I know these 4 little tracks haven't been perfect, but I felt it was appropriate to let you guys know who has been working behind the scenes, often times when they didn't have to, in order to make this pre-series happen with a short lead-up time.
Good luck to everyone tomorrow and Thursday in the races!
