    Some of you guys may have heard that so many people throughout the community disagreed to many of my ideated threads and replies, such as about the glider power-up, making it negative to become such a reality. That's why I decided to start posting a better, mostly improved thread wherein I can post a new, special, aforementioned idea. I introduce you:
    Ghost Images!
    The ghost images are similar to and based off of the Super Mario Maker game for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. It's a feature that allows you to look at just that - an invisible image looking like a transparent ghost - of where the free-rider was going through, even ahead of the checkpoints. You can toggle into two different settings: On and Off. When the ghost images are turned on and you pause the game in the editor, you'll notice that the free-rider leaves a path of these invisible images, worth noting that those images are similar to when you're challenging your friends as you race through which course.

    In contrast to this, however, these ghost images in the editor, in frames per second, increasingly appear one frame before or after another (also similar to Super Mario Maker), which, of course, happens when you change between either way you want (it can only be done, nevertheless, if the ghost images are set to "On."). Plus, you can also limit the amount of the images by controlling how much it takes to appear (for example: 16 (by default)). The minimum amount is 1; the maximum is 64.

    In addition to the fact that the ghost images can be seen within the editor, it could also be used to make decent track improvements, especially in "auto" or "holdup" zone. This way when published (a beat of a handmade track is a must, notwithstanding), other people can beat the track straightaway, respectively. The ghost image feature is a priority, though, as otherwise, it could be completely difficult to improve expansive tracks and, of course, could ruin the game little by little. So, as such, I highly recommend that this should be a better useful tool to try out by improvement means.

    The ghost image tool also won't ruin the game, but if you think it'll do so, vote in the poll above. Otherwise try out the ghost image feature today!

    I'm sorry, bungo, but this is the only decent, considerable, adequate idea I decided to commence introducing to you. On top of this, I've referred to this idea, not steal it, from the game I've been looking at since Fall 2015, called Super Mario Maker. So you should probably click on that link above the reply you posted afterwards to refer to the features of that game.

    Awesome idea Nicholas-Opuni!

    I would definitely think of putting this in the next version. The main issue here is performance. To process all of these images isn't that trivial. I wanted to do something similar a while ago , but realized that it would probably just slow down the game too much.
