Thanks for sorting the servers. I've had fun playing the beta this weekend on them, probably convinced me to buy Stadium. Been a couple of years since I last played a Track mania game.

It's not just you, don't worry. TM2 Stadium is pretty new yet, so tracks are scarce, and most of the tracks on Trackmania Exchange are ports of old (generally hard) tracks. We're adding anything we can find and removing some of the overly hard or awful tracks as we go.

Thanks @Karshand @Jeff for the servers. It's been a long time since I played Trackmania Nations? Forever? I don't even remember.

Uh, I appear to have been IP banned from the server and I don't quite know why. It had something to do with time incoherence. I got lost on the track it happened on and restarted at a checkpoint a few times. From the brief research I did, it appears it's got something to do with multiple checkpoints on overlapping tiles. By resetting to a checkpoint, the game gets confused by it or something. This was also a problem back in Nations apparently.

To be honest I haven't got the slightest clue. It's 1.20am here, so I'm tired and confused. Not a good combination when trying to make a coherent post about matters such as this.

I've never played Trackmania 2 before and I think these servers might have sold me on buying Stadium at some point.

Post it to Mania Exchange, or if you don't think it's ready for that, upload it somewhere and link it here so I can add it locally to the servers for testing.

This is the result of my first time dicking around in any TrackMania editor:

CDH_001.Map.Gbx (yes, the name is unimaginative)

I was curious as to how a transition to a horizontal wall ride from inside a loop might play. I think that part came out all right, for a first attempt. If I felt like starting over, I would probably make the loop begin as high as possible to allow for more wall time on the way down. I should have probably added a GPS because of that section, but I was too lazy to look up how to do it.

Thanks for the tracks, guys! I'll add them to Unofficial Classic when I get back from campus tonight.

My server's banlist is empty. Are you able to connect to other servers (e.g. Official Classic)? Could be a temporary global IP ban, I've seen that happen before.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that this track needs to be added to the jukebox. If you could Karsh, we will be very grateful.

EDIT: Or this version. Any Trouble remix basically.

Just another thanks @Karsh, very cool of you to maintain all this. I had a blast playing this weekend, even if I still suck at trackmania. Does it cost you much to run? Do you have a tipjar or something set up?

Official Classic did. I just restored its tracklist, everything's back to normal now.

Also regarding donations, I really don't want to actively field for donations from this community for doing something I want to do, but if you think I'm doing a good job and want to help pay for server costs, then you can donate here.

Planets are pretty worthless right now until Nadeo reimplements custom car models and more Manialink functionality. But even then they're pretty dang worthless because most models worth a crap are posted to Trackmania Carpark for free. So generally planets are just a metric for how much you like something and how much completely arbitrary funmoney you want to throw at servers and content creators.

@stevemax said:

@alibambam: From what I've gathered (not using them previously in Canyons), you purchase the use of imported cars models for very little as well as donate them to users for creating fun tracks etc, maybe more but someone else may fill you in. :)

** @Karsh: I've created a new track as well as fixed my previous one up, new --> RADICALJump & ^ old. I'd donate you a couple of dollars if you present another method, one less site that knows my details the better!

Got both tracks and I'll upload them tonight, along with any other tracks that people submit by the time I get home. Also here's a PayPal donation link.

Good news! I was finally able to retrieve my Stadium player key, which allowed me to validate Unofficial Classic, which allows me to set it as a registered ladder server. I've never completely understood how the ladder system works, but I believe this means you can go above 50k ladder points on the server once I dump 10k planets into Nadeo's sink.

@stevemax said:

Sounds good so the karma/voting system for tracks should weed out the terrible tracks which you'll just take out of the rotation if they're to low? Also have another track --> OddChance (link updated). :)

Got it, looking forward to playing it tonight. And regarding karma: I generally delete tracks under 50% local karma.

Also thanks to you and Brian B., between both of your donations I was able to pay for another month of increased memory for the VPS hosting Unofficial Classic. The 50 playercap will live on!

Canyon seemed all but dead when I jumped back on a few days ago. Not to mention when I did find a good server the tracks were awful.

Just got Stadium to revive the TrackMANIA. See you there!

Just a heads up, Jeff's server (Official Classic) is undergoing host maintenance again. Nothing I can do about it except groan because TrackmaniaServer.org didn't post about it in advance so it's probably something catastrophic.

Please check out my track and add it if you like it: http://tm.mania-exchange.com/tracks/29906/2-fast

It's very fast paced with plenty of loops and wall rides.

An update regarding Official Classic--The server's host is apparently being upgraded. Kinda crappy that they informed us of this AFTER they started working on it, but oh well. Quoth TrackmaniaServer:

Today our datacenter will upgrade the hardware of the Hostsytem Cluster6 (like on Cluster4 before). All servers will gain more ressources to improve the stability. During the maintenance the Hostsystem must be shut down. we will keep you informed about the progress via this blog.

Update 08:42: The hostsystem is up in testing mode for stability checks.

The server was poppin' off yesterday. Had to wait a good while in spectator mode before I could join the game. Also, is the Far Cry 3 pot burning mission song in the tracklist, because it needs to be there.

Hey guys, don't know if any of you are playing the Trials Evolution Gold beta, but I've been learning the editor and while searching for inspiration for a level, I decided that I wanted to pay homage to that masterpiece of level design and symbol of track editor mastery, Karsh's Star Wars Metallica. I just uploaded my take on it to Track Central, so check it out if you want.
