Ok...

Interesting. Nice job portraying a desert :)


As a suggestion, I would say make lots of jumps and stuff for an "off roading" experience off of the track.

I always loved those good ol' offroading games from PS2 and XBOX.

Do the textures look this bad in game? I understand that blockland is not the most high quality game around but this is just taking a step too far.

The computer this was taken on has horrible graphics quality, sadly.



Use this. Btw... textures? What?

As I have now inspected your map, I may critique it critically :|
You could have much better textures, and the texture you used is extremely bland and looks to be random pixels on the ground. The map needs more character - add in unique aspects to it like traveling through a lake (slowing you down) and other things. Lastly I would suggest adding a small wall of fog, doesn't have to be a lot, just enough to hide the disgusting map edge thing going on there.
I found the map very dull... I know it's a desert, but you still could have gone further.

I may make a quick desert map in a sec to show you what I mean.

Change Fog Distance to 10 and Visibility to around 950-1000.  - Color should be more Pastel.
Adjust lighting a tad, and needs new skybox.

Thanks for the advice! Were working on another map and will keep those in mind!
