During the Online Multiplayer Beta some PC players had an opportunity to try their hand at building tracks for this new game mode and took home some sweet gear for their effort. Now that the feature is live we’d like to give this opportunity to more builders.

Welcome to Shogun’s next Editor Stream Homework Challenge. If you haven’t guessed already the challenge is to build an X-Supercross track.

What? Homework?
Yes! It’s your chance to show the World that you can out-build everyone else! We’re looking for the best XSX tracks that you can create.

What is the time-frame for building?
You have from now until March 9th, 2015 to build your XSX creations and submit them.

How many tracks can I submit?
One entry per builder, please. No Teams.

Will this be in the test?
Yes!

Who selects the winner(s) for the Homework Challenge?
Our highly skilled and trained team of top tier certified track judging professionals will scour the submissions and judge them based on the following criteria;

Line

Cohesive difficulty throughout the track
Correct difficulty label
Attention to line detail


Theme

Decoration
Lighting
Cohesive design


Fun

Did we have fun playing it?


Playability
Slowdown
Dropped frames

We’ll be playing the entries during Trials Live Editor Stream on Tuesday, March 10.

So what do we get for participating?
I hope you like hoodies & t-shirts because we’ve got hoodies & t-shirts (and flags).

Tracks selected by our judges will receive the following:
Top Pick: Trials Fusion Hoodie, Trials Fusion T-shirt & Trials Fusion Flag
2nd Pick: Trials Fusion Hoodie & Trials Fusion flag

Why isn't the 360 included? It has XSX mode too.

Unfortunately because the mode is different on Xbox 360 we did not feel it was fair to judge them against each other.

I'm curious how many X360 players want to participate? If there is enough interest we could add a prize catagory specifically for the X360.

Does referencing my favorite YouTuber in the track count as intellectual property outside of Trials? They play Trials quite a bit.

I actually wanted to include a billboard with HatFilms on it, just in case they ever play Trials Fusion multiplayer :p I love their Evo videos, but they haven't switched over to Fusion yet... :(

Plenty of time to make a new track still (3 weeks) XSX doesn't have to be as complicated as Trials in terms of code but variation of lanes in some ways is a nice touch :)

Your last XSX looked great on video/stream, great use of color with the red/black.

thanx teri really enjoyed making it actually , was surprised.

I am going to enter the comp just thinking on a theme , will also try out the lane variation which looks good on some others i have played. its good to just get involved in things whether you win or not. Just the fun of competing. I use to love competing in taekwondo tournemants around the uk but unfortunetly had to stop due to health reasons. But i still have the competative edge going on.

I'm also a fan of HatFilms, met the dudes once here at the studio before Fusion launched. Nice group of guys. Unfortunately to be fair we need to exclude YouTubers as well. I doubt HatFilms would take issue with you submitting a track themed around their YT channel but there could be many many cases like this that live in a grey area. To be fair we decided to exclude all IPs outside Trials.

That being said I'd love to see a HatFilms track from the bog man (and I'm sure they would as well). Hope you decide to do it anyway.

Sure. Was hoping to see more interest in the thread before confirming but we can add a catagory for X360. In the OP I've added a catagory for Top X360 XSX with a reward of hoddie + flag.

Good luck

Thanks Eno. I've already found an issue playing it in TC the lights go off at resets. So please try and not to crash. :)
No point upping a fix as i'm not completely sure how. Is there a way to test a track to see how it runs in TC?

xsupercross behaves like a trials track in TC. If you play it anywhere else it has limited options (wich you probably already noticed). For example when playing the track from TC, reset at checkpoint only works there, bike headlights are forced-on,area forces work, bombs work..

So I hope you have workarounds for the effects you trigger in your track (with a delayed impulse - off, or turning them off after that with a trigger somewhere) because if you haven't, all of the triggered ones will be still on once you reset on a checkpoint in private matches.

thanx rude its been hard not rushing it and getting involved with the new dlc hahaha. I like making x cross tracks but its a dam bummer that we cant use to many animations

Looking at the video it looks really dusty and dark but its much clearer than it appears , not sure why it seems like that. all bikes are possible on it too , ok the panda is still some what tricky hahah but i tried to make sure there was other avenues for them to us

Since I was working on 2 xsupercross tracks anyway since beta I tought I would just send one of them in :D It wasn't possible to use DLC objects during beta so never added them afterwards either but I think the tracks turned out fine without them.

I've uploaded my entry HW4 Sub Crust on X360 today, don't have the gear to post a video unfortunately. but hope you enjoy it.

There is some lag in areas, my apologies. But whatever I tried to fix it made it worse... Apart from the Physics bubble (thanks to TeriXeri :cool:)

Edit: now the track is on TC the lag has gone through the roof... :-/ can't apologise enough, I've not been around to test it on TC

Best of luck to everyone. ;)

PS I wont be able to watch the stream on Tuesday as I'll be working :( but I'll be checking it out as soon as I can.

PPs Thanks to everyone who helped with my questions and thanks to CannibalShogun and DJ 2witchy for the XSX Editor streams. :D keep up the good work guys

Really sorry to hear that elcamsterino must be a bummer to have done all the work and that happen , its happen to me before on trials tracks once you start to get the lag im not to sure its very easy to get rid off never mind what you do. every solution or tweaking of the performance doesnt seem to do anything. Not when i have had probs. This is why i an weary of adding to many effect or animation and so forth because i find even if u remove them once the lag starts it just stay , does for me anyhow.

Least you made one and gave the effort in taking part dude , always good to see :)

According to this (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Trials+Live+Editor+Stream+XSX+H omework+Review&iso=20150310T17&p1=101&ah=2) daylight savings starts for you guys this week making it 11am EST (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Trials+Live+Editor+Stream+XSX+H omework+Review&iso=20150310T17&p1=101&ah=2). Is it really daylight savings time already?

Seeing some awesome tracks on PS4, can't wait to see what's on the other platforms tomorrow.

Looking at the vids above it's a poor effort lol, but an effort none the less,

Platform - Xbox One
Creator - Ozy Be
Difficulty - Easy
Platinum - 26sec

Roach built but all bikes competitive;)

HW4 - Cold Snap

Good luck in the contest everyone;)

edit;
I won't be around to catch the stream on Tuesday either,
But will get to the VOD hopefully,
So any feedback and advice in stream would very much appreciated,
As the track has started off in TC with all dislikes, there's obviously something very wrong with it...
Ah well:o

Might have something to do with the headlights mate,
which don't appear in the map until it's shared to TC:nonchalance:
I tried to leave room for it in mine and now I feel it's a little too dark lol

If you want you can turn off headlights for TC. You have to set the track to trials mode and turn off the headlights there. They won't be on when you play it from TC. You can also use this to tweak settings in triggers/events (animations) for when people play your track on TC because at the moment they have "reset at checkpoint reset" option on by default, while with a xsupercross track in a private race/editor it's OFF by default. So if you use them animations might behave differently depending on where you play the track. (TC vs Private)

:)Thanks very much for the tip mate,
It's enough for me just to get a track built at all lol
All these workarounds just give me headache... but great to know we can take control if needed,

Just want to say grats to the winner and everybody participating.

It was very fun to see the judging phase live on stream. I hope that happens more as we usually don't get to hear so much feedback from RL on our tracks. And I also think the judges did a very good job so. Until the next homework challenge!

Hehe yea just watched the vid, they seemed to have some fun on it, few laughs, ooh's and ahh's, and that's all that matters init :)
Would really appreciate some follow up feedback though from the judges if possible;)
I can't learn so much from "that's nice, that's not","the decorations a bit meh" lol, and am always willing to learn, if it's not too much to ask... no worries:)

GG RL, thanks for the comp:D
Congrats to the winners, cheers for some nice additions to TC (hoping to see 'em all crossed over as I do enjoy a good sx track)
Look forward to next comp, hopefully, can't have enough decent tracks:)

There were very few performance issues across all the tracks, I didn't notice any on yours. I was really bummed yours and a few other couldn't be in the top 3. All the tracks were so good it was really hard to nail it down to 3.


Btw. who do I need to contact for the prizes?
If you haven't already you should get a message from Shifty. You could also just PM your address to me or Shifty.
