Hi everybody (is anybody out there??) I am Uwe. Since I stumbled accidentially over the TMS demo in April I have been a big fan of the game. Since it was not yet available at the time I also bought TMO. I liked that, too, but nowadays I thing I prefer TMS. And that is what this community is about: Trackmania Sunrise.

I think the most amazing thing is that I am actually able to win gold medals in TMS. And I am probably the worst driver ever! Mostly I will only gain bronze or silver, but that is O.K. also. In "proper" racing games I would never be able to overtake at least one of the AI drivers. Of course the driving is cool, with all the jumps and the funny/weird ways to get around. But I think what I like best is the editor. To build custom tracks just as you like it. Sometimes the builing of tracks is more fun than actually riding them. Besides the whole editor thing makes a zillion different tracks avaiable on TM Exchange.

Myself I have uploaded a few tracks there, you can access them by clicking on "my_tracks" right in this post. I once tried to have other people test my track in the official German TMS community but that leaded to designing a track to the public demands of that community. That means in a nutshell: Your track might be crappy but you positively need brilliant media tracker effects. So the track was appreciated O.K. as a "first effort" but I did not like it very much. So I prefer building tracks again that I like and not gathering awards with it.

Speaking of media tracker: I am totally lost in that. Maybe I am just too stupid to use it. I read so many tutorials and tips&tricks but I never got it. I am able to change the camera for loopings, but that is just about it...

My average track lenght is app. three minutes and I spend at least 1/3 to 1/2 of the coppers for decoration. I think I like the Island environment best for driving. Coast is of course the most beautiful, and I find the cars there a little easier to steer since the TMX update. Bay is nice also, I like the city outfit, but it is very expensive to build. It's most fruitful for stunts, though ;o)

So that's about it. See you around.

I changed the layout. Very happy with it.
Hope to see some action here soon...
