The Icarus Run 1.0 Extended (My First Map) 56k Warning!

Recommended Posts

Introduction

This is my first MTA map so please give some feedback. It’s not entirely noob-friendly because some checkpoints are fairly hard (only for novice players that is). There are a lot of vehicle changes but they are all useful at specific parts of the race. Some are even necessary to make a jump possible or to prevent a vehicle change up-side-down (from airplane to ground-vehicle for example). Others are just to keep the race “going”. I tried to make it a fairly fast race without any slow ass vehicles.

Full race including all jumps and SUV climbs.

This version was modified to make it suitable for the littlewhiteys server (maximum time-limit is 8 minutes). I had to remove a great deal of the race to make it possible to finish within the 8 minute time-limit. The following jumps/climbs were removed:

- Subterfuge

- The Icarus Jump

- Drunken Highway

- Sideways

- Going Down

Aaargh my middle-finger hurts from scrolling all the way down.

Nice map, but the upside-down road is an old trick ;) And, you know you can raise the wheels of the rustler by pressing 2, right :D:P

That's the modified version lol. There are two versions. A short modified race (the one you are talking about) and the Extended race (which is in fact the original race). The short race is not going back to the top again but straight to the airport. That explains why you can't find the SUV's and Monster.

/edit

I've changed the download description a little bit.

The map certainly looks impressive, even more so if it’s your first attempt to create a race.

sorry, to say but that starting grid looks HORRIBLE, you placed the cars WAY too narrow next 2 each other !

the rest looks quite good, but does it really take about 12 minutes to finish?

I gotta admit that i never came across your map yet and i've been to a lot of servers - maybe they all share my opinon: a good race is over after 5 minutes

:oops:
