    OK, first the good news we have had over 600 entries to the campaign contest and as of yesterday all have been reviewed. We should have enough content to do the following full Campaigns: Action, Fantasy, Spooky, Dirt Jumping, Mountains and City.

    Now the bad news, we had over 600 tracks submitted and I underestimated the effort required to build out a campaign from player submitted tracks! Our original plan was to only release a partial campaign and then update later, but once we got into it it makes more sense to build out a complete campaign, play test internally and then release all at once.

    Now back to the good news, at the state that it is currently in I am completely confident (as long as no fires pop up) that we can get 6 complete campaigns released next week that will add +60 new campaign tracks to Free Rider HD.

    I will bump this post at the end of the day to update on progress.

    I understand that you don't have many western tracks but what was the problem with filling a trials campaign? There should be plenty of those

    Trials, will be the toughest. Majority of submissions are <0.10 completion rate, we need to get our skills up a little higher so that we can test them internally. Trials will be the next campaign after the 6 listed, saving the toughest for last.

    That makes sense. What day next week do you think you'll release some?

    OMG 600! I am now going to say the rosary for the next week that campaign 3 (at least part of it) will come out. I'll start the communal prayer;

    In the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit, amen.
    God, today i pray that campaign 3 will come out some time next week. The whole FRHD community has been waiting too long for this, the admins REALLY need your help!
    Amen
    In the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit, amen.

    I hope that the campaign tracks are actually from new authors. Would be a nice start in their author career :)

    You've been making us make an extra week for about a month and a half now, Eric ;)
    Haha, no rush. Take your time.

    However, you may want to start boarding up your windows at Kano before the FRHD community comes to hunt you down demanding for campaigns..
