Supercross Track Toolbox

Postby checkerz » Sun Dec 19, 2010 3:03 am

Hey everyone. Over the past few months I've been working hard to fine tune a scale and feel for MXS SX that is as fun as what JLV has done using photoshop. I finally got the method down when I did the US Open of MXS tracks, and after only a few more tweaks, I have been able to get the bank of pieces ready for you guys to use if you wish.

THIS IS A STARTER KIT, TWEAKING IS A MUST TO GET A GOOD TRACK!!

It's quite simple. Each jump (or section if it's a multi jump obstacle) is on it's own layer or own layer group in the PSD. Move the layer to where you want it, grab your next jump, and use the spacing provided (50-60 px) and place your next jump. HELPFUL TIP: Holding Shift+an arrow key moves 10 pixels in Photoshop. These jumps are set at a good STARTING height, but you'll want to tweak as you build your track to get them where you want them. Also, the spacing is what I've found that works well using the included terrain.hf, but also needs tuned per section.

Thanks to Wilson for providing us with his berms from Honda Test Track. These will need scaled up to use the width of the jumps, and I also recommend tweaking on them to get the feel you want.

Enough of the talk, here is the download to the PSD and terrain.hf.

If you have questions, feel free to ask. Hope this helps get some of you guys who have always wanted to make a track started!

**Gasp!** For once you can copy and paste something that may be good!

Save it as terrain.png then put it in your blank track folder.

I know right... never thought I would say it, that's for sure. MXS SX is a different beast. The key though is to still tweak each jump after to get a consistent, yet not repetitive feel. By tweak I mean dig out some of the face, add a bit of lip, blur off some top, freetransform a bit and change opacity. These are meant to be building blocks, not a finished product. :)
