    Hey everyone!

    I know you guys want updates. I hear ya. The plan is to finish all development on mobile by September. Im just finishing up racing on mobile, where you earn coins by placing in the top 3. You can challenge friends and send race links to each other etc. Im busting my butt every day.

    After September the goal* is to start the new editor. We are going to do our best to make that editor meet your needs.

    Couple thing's I know.


    - You want the old checkpoints back.
    Due to the fact we already have a bunch of ghosts on the db, it would be complicated. But it's something we could potentially bring back. It would have a big impact on racing tho, and mobile racing.

    - You want the old frame rate.
    We could create a toggle between frame rates from settings. This would change the times on the leaderboard, but it should all map up properly

    - Teleporting
    We're going to do it.

    - Anti gravity
    We're going to it

    - More vehicles?
    Really depends on things. I have heard people complain about track-mill adding other vehicles and it ruined the db, but that might be the vocal few.


    I know time goes slow when you're younger , so everything I say feel like an eternity ago.
    For me, time is flying by, and we're doing our best to get stuff done.

    just asking but why is mobile prioritized first? (hear me out) a lot of people are leaving this website, and it would be easier to "expand" when you already have something awesome updated, basically shouldn't the web version be prioritized first? (this is with all due respect it must be hard having to deal with this community.......... ;))

    Important things that you didn't mention:
    - Ability to delete/privatise tracks.
    - Ability to toggle thumbnail.
    - Elite Author.
    - Featured ghosts.
    - Favourites.
    No more bullshit excuses about time, this **** was suggested up to four years ago on release.

    We're talking about million+ installs since it was launched. That's why. It's summer, we know that September is when all the kids start coming back. There's a lot more potential for growth if we hit mobile hard.
    People aren't leaving the site. We have the analytics to prove it. You just hear the vocal people saying "Guys I'm leaving" .

    You should make the placement of buttons the same on phone and iPad Z R L are swapped, which makes ghosting weird

    Can you explain again? So you want the tablet to have the same as the phone layout?
