    Ok, I think I get the rules this time...please let me know if you do not agree...

    This is a race that has different obstacles within it. The race includes the outside of rats nest, 8 man cannons for lap count reasons and some obstacles on the long straight away, you better be going fast when you go through there...

    you start out in the middle below the turret, you drive out of that door to your right

    you follow that around on the outside of rats nest...

    u get to the straightaway where you encounter the "obstacles," then, if you get through them (let me pause and tell you that if you do not use bungie 500 on this one, then you will probly die very easily here)

    then you will keep going on the outside of rats nest...

    you come to the pelican side straight away, where I have the most awesome jump setup with man cannons shooting you into the gate, a lot of my clan members have downloaded this map just for the jump i made, its not difficult to make but it makes the jump a whole lot more fun...and then you are at the beginning again...

    this map is best played with on the all popular BUNGIE 500...

    I'm mostly seeing Rat's Nest with a few shield doors, but I'm sure it would be fun to race on

    this seems very simple and the fusion coils look like they would knock you around alot, but i guess that that was the idea.

    When You go off the mancannon jump do you get back into the race track?

    it is very simple but once those fusion coils going, it can be madness with 2-16 people in there...:p especially if you use bungie 500, then you wont die that quickly...at least make vehicles indestructible :p, trust me, you will need it...

    Thats what it looks like to me. Or else you just stop after 1 lap

    yes, the mancannons shoot you over the barriers, and I have them at just the right angle so that you do not hit the wall of the tunnel at the other end of the straight away :) making the longest jump on rats nest ;)

    o, as a side note, there are 32 fusion coils set up in that straight away, and I have it set to 5 minimum...I had it set at 10, but I could never get through :p

    wouldn't that create lag though?

    my bad about the double posting, tons of people were asking me quesitons at once while I was still on...:)...

    and surprisingly, no, I played with 8 guys on this map and there was no lag whatsoever...I think its because the rest of the map is simple and the fact that only 5 fusion coils are on the map at any one time helps aswell...

    youre still basically just racing round the egde of the map with a few fusion coils raining down and on jump so its not really that special. Thats not to say it isnt fun but you proabaly get bored off it pretty quickly.

    that is true, it is simple, but my clan and I have played this on our game nights for a couple of weeks now and no one has gotten bored of it, first off, the fusion coils are unpredictable, you dont know which fusion coils are going to drop and blow up and if they do hit you, will you go straight up, or will you get shot backward, or to the side or will you get a lucky break and get shot all the way past all the fusion coils, you never know, its always a surprise ;)...and the jump is unpredictable aswell, even going off it straight will probly translate into a backflip, but go off that thing while swerving and there is a definite 360 in it for you, with a chance of a flip :)

    you may be right...i will have to consider that, mostly i was thinkn about lag when i was thinking about content, but i guess one or two things in those straight aways wouldnt be too big of a deal...thanks...;)

    What stops people from just walking through the sheild doors as a shortcut?

    this is where using bungie 500 comes into play, it makes people run very slow, and because of the extra gravity, there is no way to score without a mongoose :) good question though, I definitely think about "cheating" in any map i make...

    Im just being honest: This is just Rat's Nest with a few barriers and fusion coils. I appreciate the effort, but a very old idea.

    old? has anyone done this already? I know its simple but it has to be to prevent lag, just play it and then tell me what you think, it would only take like 10 minutes out of your day...it may be simple, but the experience and replayability is what counts in a race game...am I right?
