Well, I won't be as enthusiastic as the first award giver, but here is some feedback you asked for:

1) The track is too complicated (confusing); no one will be able to learn the layout during 6 or so minutes of online playing, and as learning the layout by heart is needed to finish and get a good time, on-line racers won't like this.

2) certain parts don't tie together unless you are going the single most optimal way; mainly, the 180 degree wallride doesn't connect well with the finish lane - I understand you were aiming to make the central tube-like area "crowded", but it just somehow doesn't work.

3) Confusing signs: For example, the very first loop (in the tube) has two signs for the player: in his current lane, there is "go right", and in the next lane, there's "go up" - but the objective here is to change 2 lanes, not just one - and the player learns this only after he falls down the lane which he is supposed to take "up" on his return.

Many of these problems could be solved by making better introduction - not so jumpy, but instead a clear fly-through of the track, so the player knows what to do. With the current intro, all the player can do is hit the 7 key and study the map on his own.

Or perhaps add in-race text hints - "Diagonal jump right" would work wonders.

Thx Alcator for your detailed analysis of my track.
I agree to you concerning confusion, signs (my mistake: i´m familiar with my intentions & ideas, but how to make it clear & evident to others) & MT (lack of skills). Layout (Point 2) was intented, but maybe not a good idea or bad realisation. I know its a long way for me to improve my tracking skills. But I would be glad, if you would give one of my future tracks a try.

WOW, awesome, great track
good reuse and nice smooth turns, Great work
Nice screenie too
I disagree with alcator, even the track is not very easy, the way to go is not very difficult to follow. (I made my time after 15 minutes, so ...)
