    Hey all,

    Pushed out a change yesterday that will impact all track authors with the exception of official (because you are official that means we "trust" you).

    To upload tracks:
    - you must have completed the track in the editor without adding anymore lines, stars or powerups
    - you cannot complete a track in 0 seconds

    This should help reduce those impossible tracks or ones that posted through scores with 0 seconds. This is to help with the increase of tracks that have been posted recently.

    We hit a major hiccup with the "Skip Coins" feature, that I will be trying to iron out today and get released but it is now looking like next week unless I get some big break through in the next couple of hours.

    Yes! I hope you get some big break through for the skip feature! :)

    I dont think that the skip feature is nessisary. It (probably) couldnt hurt though.

    And THANK YOU for this update. Just as important as campaigns in my eyes...

    PS: JacobCahoon , write an article. Give it time to see if it improves the quality of new tracks though. I'm in no hurry.

    About the skip feature, we don't need it, the new guys do. There are some tracks that new riders can't finish so they leave the game. If there was a skip feature they could skip the one they had trouble with and come back to it later. About the article, I will, but I am writing an informative essay about Columbus right now. :(

    You have a point

    That's alright. just when ever. Or if this will take like 3 days, I could do it. But no rush ;)

    THANK YOU!!!! I'm tired of pressing random and getting a really bad, impossible track. I think this is a great change!

    I'm not sure if this is relevant or not, but I found some bugs in the track creator.
    1: Random invisible 'pixels of death' appear, which makes you die. You cannot see or erase them, and they can ruin a great track, especially hold ups and autos.
    2: The track is not exactly the same when you insert a code. The change is not visible, but when I was creating a really cool hold up, and it got ruined because of that. I replayed it over and over again before exporting the track, and the next day when I imported the code, it didn't work.
    I'm not the only one to notice these bugs, stoopywoopy noticed the second bug and ShelbyLowry has noticed the first. Please fix them!!!! :)

    I also have an idea that would make detailing easier and better. Having a fill tool would be great, so for example you create a square [] and then using the fill tool you press in the middle of it and it turns into a black or grey square, depending on if you are using physics line or scenery line. It would be great for backgrounds, and any other detailing, like the spikes in my 'No Escape' track.

    Thanks and I hope you find this useful! ;)

    Fill tool has been sugested OVER AND OVER AGAIN... And I hate the idea... Go to FR2.org and look at the "color" tracks. I think a fill tool would be another version of that. I have maintained strong opposition to this point ever since the idea was first proposed (or when I first heard it).

    PS: did they revert the coin cost back to the good 250?? I hate the spammy tracks that have emerged because of the 50 cost... :(

    Yeah, 'color' tracks WOULD ruin FRHD. I was thinking more of just the plain physics line and scenery line filling, but you are totally right. I can still fill in with billions of lines! ;D :D But really, you are right. Free rider in color would just be a different game and would ruin the awesomeness of FRHD.
