    Community Recommended by D2 Dahaka - June 2, 2016

    D2 Dahaka has 10 great tracks for you to check out this week. Let's see what he has to say about these exciting tracks below!



    Industrial Age by Funktastic-

    When our friend funk isn't driving us all mad on the forums, he's applying his considerable talent to the Trials editor. Industrial age is a nicely themed creation with a forgiving technical-hard driving line and is a fine example of what funk can do when he applies himself.


    MPC FINITO by Kidmpc

    An underappreciated masterpiece from the line master himself. This gorgeous industrial themed creation features a great sense visual of depth and a trade mark smooth as silk driving line only kid m p c could deliver.


    Downcast by AM0RPHOUS

    No introduction is required for this prolific track builder. AM0RPHOUS - aka the man who could produce an entire DLC faster than most of us can design individual obstacles - does not disappoint with this smooth flowing, technical-hard speed-runner. Rumour has it he built this one handed, riding bareback on a unicorn.


    Imperial (Extreme) by ZZZZZZach

    ZZZZZZach has a knack for a track. He also has a knack for making punishing extreme lines through some of the finest architecture you'll find in Trials. In between pulling your hair out in frustration, take some time to admire the intricate detail on display. Stunning!


    "Uninfinite" by Coupe

    Coupe formerly known as Fidelity - in my opinion Ė is one of the game's most under-appreciated builders. His tracks are always nicely decorated and lit and most importantly, the good looks are backed up by good lines and this is no exception. Love him or you will go blind!


    Smog Valley [EZ] by GUS2128

    A Baggie only speed-runner through a disgustingly contaminated valley isnít exactly the most exciting pitch for a trials track. Against all the odds this track manages to be fast, fun and not all that disgusting. Enjoy!


    Ecclesiatrial by Rishaanvb

    Rishaan requires no introduction and this latest entry in his Trials CV doesnít disappoint. This trek though a desecrated place of worship is full of atmosphere and has a cleverly designed tech-line, that slows things down so you can soak it all in.


    Speedrunners by SP1NALFLU1D

    Heralding from the Trials Evolution era, SP1NALFLU1D is best known for his ability to accurately model almost anything in the editor. This track sadly isn't a demonstration of his talents, nor will it win any awards for lighting or deco, but it features one of the most enjoyable tech speed-running lines I've had the pleasure to grind in a while. If you donít love this line, youíre playing it wrong!


    Bayside Boatride by SwampBalls

    Swampballs is another builder who requires no introduction. This creative genius is one of few out there who can make a track that is not only fun to play, but can tell a genuinely engaging story. This one may not be new, but itís a personal favourite of mine and a testament to this creatorís talents. Enjoy it all over again!


    LOFTR: FREE FALL by LORDS of FtRING

    This collaboration between DragonMICKY and attila999 isnít exactly new, but it was the first custom track in Trials Fusion, that genuinely blew me away and opened my eyes to the possibilities of the then new track editor. Even now, LOFTR: FREE FALL remains an impressive accomplishment and for that reason Iíve included it in my picks.

    Indeed, very nice picks D2 - and smart descriptions. "The line master himself", i liked that. There's even one track from a builder i don't enjoy in general, but found myself grinding it yesterday until top spot, thanks for that.

    Cheers Evan. I tried my best to include under-appreciated tracks and/or builders, but couldn't stick to that theme for a number of reasons. The time frame for picking tracks was tight as a few people who were in front of me in the queue pulled out at the last minute. A lot of tracks I couldn't include due to them having being picked recently, being part of a comp or for IP issues.

    Nice picks, never new of one of the builders either.

    I've know Rishaan for quite some time now. I consider him not only a good friend, but also as a top tier builder who knows the ins-and-outs of the editor.

    But Ecclesiatrial on Xbox One is almost unplayable with how much lag there is. Maybe it's just me, my system, or my internet, but I chop through this entire track.

    I have to assume that Rishaan's track was created and ran perfectly on PS4, but the port really did his track no justice on the Xbox One.

    Is anyone else experiencing this lag on X1 when playing Ecclesiatrial? And is there no way to fix this? I would really like to be able to play his track.

    Hello,

    Just to precise the tracks haven't been ported but they went through the automated xplat sharing flow, which can explain the issues.
    We don't have a way to deal with different hardware for UGC at the moment, so there are some cases like this one sadly. :-(

    Cheers,
