Hey guys,

I've had some custom maps for a while now, I just never posted about them.

So here's a list of what I have:

Moguls: My first track, and a very basic track, with repetition of obstacles.
It's purpose was more of a practice track to play with ramps and minimize airtime.
While it's a very basic track, getting thru with a fast time requires good technique.

Levers Run: I used some hinged obstacles that you need to push out of the way, and a section
that has upper/lower route, upper being the quicker, but you need to figure out how
to get up there. A few more moving obstacles takes you to the finish line.
Once again, it has good flow, but you need good technique to get a fast time.

City Quake: Ride your way out of the City after an earthquake has hit and caused some damage.
Meant to be a fast flow track, a proper approach to the obstacles will help you get
a good time.

Rail Ridin': Riding rails and edges in this track, while fairly straightforward, there are a
lot of tripping points if you aren't careful. It looks easier than it is, at
least for fast times.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHiUOxHI5xM

Tiresome : A challenging track, it has some elements from Trials 2SE, YSNP, Under Construction
and a few other parts some may recognize. It's a bit of a long track, and the
obstacles aren't for the casual player, but it's far from being extreme, just a good
hard track.

Up or Down: This track was designed for the Weekly Challenges on Trialshd.net, and as such
has very good flow to it, but does require some advanced bounce techniques to make
the most of it. However, anyone can play it as there is a lower level where you may
fall onto from numerous places up top, thus allowing anyone to finish the track.

Pane in the Glass (P in the G): I thought I'd play a bit with slippery surfaces (glass), while
making a good flow track. Some of the glass may break in order
to slow you down, some won't making for slippery ramps.

Traffic Jam

As you leave the Redlynx office for the day....you are trying to get home fast so you can play trials at home, but traffic is backed up.....lol See how quickly you can get home!

L'Ecureuil

French word for squirrel! I found the giant squirrel's lair! LOL
Travel underground through some old ruins, see the temple of the squirrel, and exit back to civilization!
Once again, a nice medium fast flow track.

Industrial

A hard medium length track. Vents and pipes mainly, with some technical jumps.
Set in an Industrial building setting.


Fire Trail

More of an ingame style of track. Fast speed track, technical jumps for speed.
It's really only a medium difficulty.

Newest Track--- Crossover
Crosses over between hard and medium as well as numerous crossover paths!
I set this track as a hard level, because the beginning section requires some good bounce technique to jump the obstacles smoothly.

All of these tracks are designed for flow and speed, while they may be labeled Hard or Medium, I
think they are all fairly easy tracks, one must have good technique to get the best times.

Tiresome is the only exception, as it was meant to be a bit tricky in some areas, but it's still
just a good Hard track.

My friends list is almost full, but I will always accept people wanting to play these tracks, so
send me a message on xbox, or post here if my friends list is full, and I'll get you on.

If you want to leave feedback, it would be appreciated, and if you just want to play them with a
"No Comment" that's fine too!

Yep, some tricky stuff here, I still haven't figured out how to get over that one, eh, 90 dergee ramp-wall thing. Do you have a video or something for help? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif Nice track.

Moguls: the 1st track i ever played by you, GREAT track i played this one alot i love how you have to slow down for the ramps to be faster and great techinque

Levers Run:not your best but damn good idea feels like im starting a race everytime i go through lol

City Quake: just barely played this one and its amazing, great theme! you have some great ideas on this track a must play

Rail Ridin': another great track needs good technique for a good time you cant just ride through needs some advanced tricks

Tiresome :A great dedication track to trials 2! has great obstacles such as inverted wall, tire bouncing, backflip off wall, the tubes and others! a must play if you want a general idea of what some trials 2 obstacles are like

Up or Down : ahh, my favorite! reminds me of speedway from trials 2 one of my favoite tracks i love the advanced hopping feels great, one of the best user tracks out there , a MUST TRY

Pane in the Glass (P in the G): THIS TRACK IS GREAT! great idea of glass and sliding, also has sick flow when you get used of the obstacles, another great track by ahhme

ALL IN ALL - all trials hd fans need to try these tracks they are sick and really fun to play and great for competing on! good work ahhme2

Well, it's like 420 said, you basically have to do a wheelie. Easier done than said! Because the explanation is complicated, but a visual is much easier. I don't know if I can get a vid of it, I'll see what I can do.

Basically, what you want to do, is to pop a wheely as you start going up the ramp, and after the halfway point on the ramp, you push back down (lean Forward) and the momentum carries you over the lip.

It's actually a very short fluid movement, even tho I don't think I explained it well.

Understood. This might be beyond my skill level / repetition tolerance but I'll give it another try. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

BlackSunRa, I think you might find it's easier than you might think.

Here's a vid of some Trials 2SE stuff, the first 10 secs is all you need to watch:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9GcIeqMnvc

Forget about the flip he does, just watch his approach to the ramp.
The other thing is you don't need much speed at all, if anything, going fast makes it harder.

I'll still try and get that portion of my track on vid though.

Good luck with it!

What's up my dog, Yo, Pain in the glass was a sick as hell little track that will take some level knowledge for the fastest run, A fun course with nice visuals and awesome obstacles. I'm off to try the other one's, I'll leave feedback on those as well, When i learn them. Great work. Keep it up Ahhme. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif

BlackSunRa, and any others having a hard time with the ramp in Tiresome.

I managed to make a clip and get it on youtube, hopefully you can make the jump after viewing the clip.

I go over the ramp 4-5 times, and I back up each time and rejump the ramp.
This is so you can see slightly different variations on the jump, and to show that once you understand the process, you can do it over and over again.
It's not a particularly hard jump, but you must learn the timing and technique.

This is the based on middle of the YSNP track, and for us that played Trials 2SE, we had to learn the technique a long time ago.

p in the g, creative and non-annoying use of the glass for once. i play this one all the time on breaks, easy and fun to tear it up. your tracks are all simple and effective, killa competition tracks keep it up

Salut l'ami !*

Your new track is really cool.
It's hard to vary when you use many cars, I've got the same problem on the next track I'm doing http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif
I really love your train. But we can't see it very much. it really needs to be highlighted !!! Maybe you can also use some animations on the barrier and put some blinking lights to prevent a train crash.
Your truck is also cool. But it's too bad there's a blinking texture on the vent part. You have to find a way to fix it.
The color of the sky is ugly http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif I don't think that the sky in Finland is green yellow pee colored, is it ? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

Oh, and if it's Redlynx Headquarter, I think it needs a giant statue of a squirrel http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif
Or a giant squirrel that try to eat there building like Godzilla http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

The checkpoints are ok http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

It's a good work. If you succeed to add variety, it can be a really good map http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

Because of the Redlynx scenery, you have to put easter eggs everywhere !!!


*Hello my friend

ahh_me2
01-03-2010, 03:08 AM
Merci bien MrZog!


I didn't have a giant squirrel, so i stuck the "beware squirrel" sign on the building(on the trampoline).

Never been to Finland, so i can't be sure of the sky color . LOL
Blinking texture on the truck is because the vent ducts are quite long, and i had to overlap....would've been nice if we had some short pieces. We've always wanted drive thru structures(tunnel), this was the closest thing.

Lot's of people loved the train, if there is too much hilight, it might not look so cool! idk...

Yeah, animations on the barrier would be cool, i might have to retrofit it to the track.

Thanks for your comments!

Hey guys,

Another track up, featuring a Giant Squirrel!

See first post for description!

Another cool track from ahhme2. I got gold after some hard riding. The squirrel is amazing haha!

The 2 wall decorations in the middle is a hard obstacle. It seemed a bit out of place considering the rest of the track.

Also i'm not sure about how to do the wood ramps near the start. is it just random or is there a good fast way?

ahh_me2
01-14-2010, 07:29 PM
Hey shotaneric,

The 2 wall obstacles are actually quite easy, the ceiling is low, so you can't jump high, so it becomes a technical jump for distance.

Don't go too fast, and as you're leaving the first ramp, push your rider forward to get distance instead of height.

The wood ramps? Are you talking about the one with red and green flashing lights?

This is the key jump for a fast time....From the flat upper deck, you need to jump over the wooden half-pipe, and land/bounce off of the lip of the 1/4 wooden ramp, and if done right, will land you on the big wooden ramp with enough momentum to carry you up and through the lights onto the flat part.

Hope this helps! Glad u liked the track and the Squirrel, I had a lot of fun trying to replicate the redlynx squirrel using misc editor objects, and I'm quite proud of how it turned out!

rlmergeuser
01-25-2010, 11:22 AM
bow down to the giant squirrel... this temple to our favorite rodent is filled with trick obstacles and a flow you'd expect from ahhme2. i think with this one you really built some good stuff in the editor, its not as basic as your others. i see you've learned some new editor tricks http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

another ahhme2 classic, just a quick play-thru and you can already tell its one of yours just by the design. you do the straight line track no-nonsense fast-flow style better than anyone, fire trail is a trials timer dream. went back and forth with psycho on this one for awhile one day, eventually he smoked me though (as usual). needs some leadboards... http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif cant wait for your new hard track

Hey guys,

New track up.....Crossover.

I labeled it as hard....because the beginning section requires some good bounce technique to smoothly pass the obstacles...

All of my tracks are listed in the opening post.


If my Friends List is full, just send me a msg....

rlmergeuser
03-30-2010, 09:19 AM
Crossover is a very good challenge ahhme, although i never knew that you even made it until i seen your thread, maybe you should send a msg over xbox live to notify people about it.

ahh_me2
03-30-2010, 05:55 PM
Hey Boris,

Yeah, normally I send out xbla msg, but I guess I was being a bit lazy this time around....and then I simply forgot!

The beginning of the track definitely presents a challenge to consistently do well and fast.

And I finally got around to posting all my tracks on trialshd.net , so people can compete/post times if they want.
