Trackmania: Nice View!Posted: November 26, 2009
While waiting for my Thanksgiving goodies to be ready for the oven, I played a few rounds of Trackmania. Surprisingly, it offered an update. The Star Edition update offers a new series of tracks, the Star Tracks, which were created and submitted by other Trackmania players. (Descent once had such a user-created level pack.)
This is Star Island A4. Trackmania is known for its glittering and often overly pretty scenery (especially in the Bay, Coast and Island enviroments) and this screenshot doesn’t do it justice. The taillight trails are part of the game.
I must have been one of the first players to get this update: There were but 17 people in the world listed in the standings and I was the only US player! (I’m ranked #1 FWIW.)
