    Can it be a racer, if it's less than that each side?

    Also, does it have to be uploaded to the speedzone if it's a rather large file and already has been uploaded somewhere else?

    Racings are allowed if they are under 3500 feet each side. It also does have to be uploaded for it to count (because then it gets counted as part of the Winner's Circle).

    Hate to say it, but RCT definately has this contest already won. I can't even come up with a good design.

    Wow, the person I was most worried about beating me bows out. Dang.

    At the rate this is going, I might be the ONLY entry.

    This is a No Limits Contest, not an RCT contest, in case people were wondering.

    At the thought of losing, I think I will still biuld a ride to compete against TS. I'm not sure how great it'll be, but it's worth a shot.

    Alright, I think I'm going to make one last attempt at a track to take on RCT loser. Bring it on RCT lol. BTW, if I don't get something done, after looking at all of the entries, I'd say you have this one in the bag.

    EDIT:Steven, are we allowed to have a one cylce grace period? Like on my ride, the first time though the circuit, the second train will stop on the lift, after that, it'll run fine. Is that allowable?

    Oh well, I got it to run right now. Occasionally, but very rarely, it will stop in the breaks, other than it is fine. A little more tweaking, and it should be good to go. RCT, please join the queue sometime, need to talk about ride.

    Points were determined by ranking (scale of 1-4, with 1-1st, 2-2nd, 3-3rd, 4-Hon. Mention)... the lower the points, the higher the ranking. There were three judges: Myself, Chip, and Kraken. Those points were then added, and then whoever had the lowest total won...

    Winners for August:

    Gold: Old School, by Atrace (6 points)
    Silver: Texas Shootout, by RCT Loser (7 points)
    Bronze: Eeeeeee, by Dark Luke (10 points)
    Eindentig, by Happy Cake (10 points)

    Denense was disqualified because its train in the ready brakes failed to enter the unload station, and in e-stop situations, one train would crash into that.

    psst...

    3(1+2+3+4)=30

    6+7+10+10=33

    or, if you rated Denense
    3(1+2+3+4+4)=42

    I'll get the avatars in tomorrow...

    and here's the breakdown of votes:

    Code:
    Co  K C S  Total
    --  - - -  -----
    TS  4 1 2  7
    EI  2 4 4  10
    DE  V*D D  DQ (*Kraken voted 1, 2/3rds DQ voided his vote)
    EE  4 3 3  10
    OS  3 2 1  6
    A DQ means it did not meet the requirements of the contest and cannot be judged. Had Denense put wheels in its ready brakes, it would've probably done well.

    Yep, exactly what me and Atrace had both figured. Kraken voted me last out of spite. Actually, had I known Kraken was to be a judge, I wouldn't have entered in the first place, but oh well.

    It's not that a quarter of your ride was purgatized, or that Denense, Old School and Eindtug had more elaborate layouts that I favored, it's because I HATE you.

    Rct_Loser, your ride was technically superior to all the others, but I just wasn't thrilled by the elements. I value creativity and imagination over how perfect an element is really, and the fast and fanciful layouts of Demense, Eindutug appealed to me greater. I thought that all of the rides, except for Eeee, were excellent, and I hope you're able to understand that instead of writing it off as "Kraken hates me".
