Help for race map making

Post by sabk on Sun Feb 22, 2015 4:45 pm

I feel like I am the only one who makes race maps on Nv2 often.
I will be providing help below of making race maps.
PM me if you are confused.

Race map making has two keys: Flow: Perhaps the most important; Also decorating and ramps.
Flow is what keeps a race map to continue without sudden stops or slowing down, unless the run has a flaw.
Decorating is pretty much how to keep your race maps looking good. Creativity is involved in this.
Ramps are important because they are a puzzle piece in creating flow.
Also the course of the map should always be the same for a run, unless the run has flaws.
I hope this will help all mappers who want to try race map making. :)
(For a head start, THUNDER and I make good race tile sets to give you guys a head start if you want to try race map making.)
Some good race map makers:

Hope this helps:)

Thanks for the info man, I've been trying to make some race maps but I simply suck at them. I will try my best to use these tactics but I may ask you or THUNDER for some tilesets and I will go from there.
You are a really good race maker though, I get jealous of your maps easily because of how damn good they are to the N community :D

I also would like to add that not all race maps have to be overly long or complex. I provide short, speed maps that most N players can beat (Although the point is to see who does it the fastest)

Thanks for the helpful information, nevertheless, I do not want to create race maps. In Addition, w95559w created race maps?

Andrew, one reason why your race lvls that you made aren't rated or anything is because of the aesthetics of the map. No offense, your race maps have no decoration whatsoever.
Also use your space on a race map. People tend to like long race maps, with no lag, and flow.
Also work on your close calls. This shouldn't involve tons of enemies like in this one you made: www.thewayoftheninja.org/nv2.html?l=131025
