    Hey All,

    We just released the ability to upload tracks, let us know if you see anything broken.

    You will notice a new button by "Export Track" called "Upload Track" when you are done with a track and would like to submit it to the DB click "Upload Track".

    Currently the price to upload tracks has been set to 250 coins, once we see everything is working properly etc this may be increased to 500 coins, the objective is to have about 5 days to a weeks worth of playing tracks before a "new" player can submit a track.

    For classic track authors that have been a part of the Free Rider community for years (currently have tracks on FRHD) and may not play as much as they used to but still want to create tracks and be a part of the community, we have a setting available for you so you can continue to play / create as you are accustomed to. If you are a classic track author and have not had your account set up with special uploading privileges please contact us at frhd-feedback@freeriderhd.com so we can set your account up, you will need to provide us with info to prove you are who you say you are.

    So start drawing and uploading: http://www.freeriderhd.com/create

    Let us know if anything is broken!

    What defines a classic track author? Does that include tracks created in Canvas Rider?

    Before the track uploading was enabled we had about 10k of the most popular Free Rider tracks created and assigned those authors "classic" status.

    If you have a portfolio of tracks on another Free Rider site that you would like to be considered to be a classic author you can shoot us an email at frhd-team@freeriderhd.com and we will take a look.

    The goal is to not "force" those track authors to have to play to submit tracks especially if they have been in the community for years.

    I guess you were waiting for this moment from the start. The moment when they release the creator and uploading feature.

    Pretty much, I have not been able to share my tracks with a *very* large amount of people :p

    This probably made them underrated. Maybe, you have a good chance that you'll get lots of plays here.

    Yeah maybe, but my tracks are VERY big and they might get down voted due to the frustration that some people might experience

    We have been pretty quiet about the growth of FRHD but we have been seeing significant week over week growth since launch. Besides being an official site, one advantage FRHD has over other Free Rider sites is that it is playable on any device, as you can see on the leaderboards, players are playing on phones, tablets and desktop.

    Once we get campaigns out, we can focus on marketing the game a bit more but with the current growth I am very confident that FRHD will be the biggest Free Rider community, so there should be no shortage of players to see and play your tracks.
