    Hey all,

    A couple updates:

    1. We pushed out an update to the Top Rated track based on some feedback from the forum. Check it out, shows a better distribution of highly rated tracks based on total likes, min number of votes and some other stuff! http://www.freeriderhd.com/highest-rated
    2. We just reduced cost to upload tracks from 250 to 50 coins. We are planning on running a 1 week test to see how this impacts the quality / types of tracks being submitted. If we start to see an increase of spam etc we will likely raise it back up but our preference would be to keep at 50 or even lower further.
    That's it, if you have any feedback let us know!

    Oh no! 50 coins will mean that people will just spam with their tracks! Well some people. We'll see how it goes though! I love the idea of the top rated!

    hey Eric. Ive been thinking. I remember when I first joined FRHD. There was talk among the staff that racing would be a BIG part of FRHD. The problem is that if it costs only 50 coins to upload tracks, people will play less. And race less. see what I mean?

    and the quality of tracks will probably go down

    I don't know about you, but I'm seeing lots more tracks that don't have that much effort put into them.

    I think it does not matter because when you click play random track it does not show (most of the time ) tracks that have no effort put in them.

    Guys! If you go to the 3rd page of "top rated" my "The Flow 1.1" is higher than iTzChuckNorris 's "cityscape 2"

    hallelujah!

    Wow I'm really suprised to see 2 of my campaign tracks on that page, especially after watching people ragequit on them on youtube haha. Great update, this was really needed, highest rated was so random before. Is the campaign update comming this week as well?

    I just went onto FRHD and saw this. I nearly freaked out! Then I clicked on it and I realized I wasn't logged in :(


    It's funny, but kinda sad... XD

    I am currently working on "Skip Campaign Tracks" for coins. Will likely get that released for Friday, so I am thinking majority of my next week will be pushing in new campaign tracks.

    You guys sidetracked me with the Top Rated request! But that one was a long time coming, it personally annoyed me to so once I saw that thread I had all the motivation I needed to get it done.
