Christmas Special: Summit Lake

**Merry Christmas and Happy New Year**

First of all, I just want to say that this is not the full potential I could've gotten out of this track, but it is worthy of a release. I just don't have the patience or skill to make it any better. Anyways, Summit Lake is my first replica with any elevation change, and the terrain part of it I'm pretty happy with. Since this isn't the full potential of Summit Lake, anyone who knows the track really well, or is an awesome track builder, can improve this track or use it as a base for a new one. By the way, this is the 2012 version if anyone plans on using this as a base. If anyone is really ambitious, or bored, I give you my permission to use my terrain as a base for the trail system that runs through the mx track, just include me in the credits and pm me a beta. For info on the track irl and more, check out http://www.summitlakegamefarm.com.

It's a nice replica and all, but it's not really that fun because you can't see the bumps. I think you captured the feel and environment of the track fairly well, I mean it was instantly recognizable. It would be at least a million times better without the invisible braking bumps.

It felt a little flat all together, but what I mentioned above is really the show stopper.

Yeah I agree with you 100%, its just that Ive been chiseling away at this track for so long that I lost the patience for fine details like that. I think real height data probably would have helped it feel a little more realistic and less flat, but I just don't know how to do that. Thanks for the advice though, I'll use it for my next track.

Happy New Year!
I was trying to get the bots to work and they just wouldn't cross the finish, so I updated the timing gates.
