Hi all,

I wanted to spot this BAY (Trial/RPG) or what u can call it, made by Marius89!

TMX Link: Track Info - TMX

Here's his Story:

The Bay car is the car with the best accelelartion in TM. Cause of that it's very useful for climbing and the bay editor has lots of blocks you can climb on. So I had the idea to build an RPG-track in this environment.
I spended much time into this track, but now it's ready to upload. You'll drive on every block the environment has. Some blocks you'll drive in different ways. Look at the screenie or in the intro and you see, what the track is about. Surely this isn't an easy track, but on every checkpoint there are GPS Ghosts that show you how to come to the next checkpoint. So I hope everybody is able to finish this track.

Good Luck if you go try this insane stuff o.o

For me, that is not really RPG

The car is very unstable to have fun.

What mean all other?

It is a stupid track because the author called it "RPG", but it is TRIAL.

I have tried it and I still hate the fact that the author called it a "RPG"...

from blog page :

Here's occam's attempt to explain the difference between a trial track and an RPG track:

Trial tracks and RPG tracks are fundamentally similar in design. The most distinctive feature to differentiate between an RPG and a Trial Track is the look and feel of the track. RPG tracks are usually shaped in an adventurous setting by means of an heavily modded environment, often even feature custom sounds like for example a cracking hallway or a Gregorian chants when entering a hall.

Trial Tracks use plain unmodded blocks and tend to be a bit shorter and in general seem to be a bit easier to digest for slower PC hardware than the modded and rather copper heavy RPGs. RPGs are often outstandingly long, not to say epic and often even story driven.

Of course it is not always easy to distinguish between those two very similar genres. Only adding an adventure style Mod alone will not transform a two minute trial track into an RPG though^^.

The following is not written in stone, judging from current TMX records (AT might differ due to different driving skills of the author): Most RPGs are between 7 and 20 minutes. Most Trial tracks between 2 and 7 minutes in length.

The term RPG is derived from the actual Term Role Playing Game, so if your Track is not adventurous at all, it's rather a Trial Track.

This ain't an RPG at all. It's a Trial track.
The differences between these 2 types of tracks are very clear, and of course I respect these differences.
