"The Space Race" - An alternate way to PVP!

I built this map last night as a fun mini game to play with my fleet mates.

As it stands its a multiplayer ONLY map, so bring friends!

Here is a video of the map in action!
The Space Race Demo

Im going to try and implement some AI racers in the track and possibly even a few other tracks as either stand alone races like this one or a bunch of tracks to make a "championship" style play where multiple tracks have to be completed one after the other.

Please give it a shot or watch the video before writing this off... Me and my buddies had a scream racing each other last night!

Now this is a great, inventive, unconventional use of the Foundry. Hats off to you sir, it looks like a blast.

I might suggest adding a few more obstacles, but otherwise its pretty cool! And there's potential here for people to build more different types of race tracks.

I like it-

The two seperate race courses are both interesting.

The added obstacles in the most recent version are good.

It would be nice if there was a way to have an NPC at the start to count down for the racers to depart.

Good fun-

One of the most original and creative uses of the Foundry I have seen.
I wish I hadn't been flat broke on Dilithium when I ran it.
Next Time I will certainly throw you a tip.

That is sweet - I'll be sure the check that one out. Any thoughts on doing a ground one?

And any pointers for someone wanting to "copy" your idea - since it is a genius one?

Very cool idea! Though the first track with all the blurry vision going on was kind of over the top for that effect. Also I found some holes to get out.
