Abstract Tumbling 4 - Scat - SCG

Post by SethComposerGuy on Sat Jul 11, 2015 7:20 pm

So I decided to mess around with line boosting and this is the result. Enjoy.

It definitely has originality points, and as someone who's always been on the side of playing around with multi lining, this tickles my pickle. But at the same time, the curves feel so rushed, and not very clean at all, which feels weird to be saying to someone who's been playing the game for as long as you have. Take your time with those stuff, the rules of regular manuals also apply to multi lined ones. The more lines make up the curve, the easier it is to balance. And likewise, the more crazy unbalanced stuff you can do with them.

That song gave me such strong anomaly vibes it actually distracted me from the track a bit.

That said, some of my favorite tracks are your abstract tumbling tracks, and this is no exception. Great stuff.

I disagree with this. I think the more sharp and jagged the lines are when theyre stacked the cooler it looks. They dont have to be smooth and curvy to do cool flips and unbalanced stuff.

Then again theres no right or wrong way to make a track. Do whatever. Who cares.

Cool thingy seth. Id like to see more cool flippy stuff and things like this and sharp turns and directiobal changes.

Thanks. This was a lot of fun to make and think this style of line boosting has a lot of potential.

To be honest, I feel like the idea that all manual based tracks need to have good looking smooth curves in order to be good is very limiting to the creativity of what can be done in a manual based track, especially when it comes to line boosting. For example, there are quite a few spots in this track where I got bosh spinning to the point where he'd launch himself off the line, and the only way I'd be able to keep him spinning like that would be to off set the next line or create a sharp angle.For me to continue with a smooth even curve after he 'jumps' off the line, he'd miss several lines causing the rate of his spinning to slow down.

Thanks. I enjoy thinking outside the box from time to time Smile

Thanks, and I agree. I'll even go so far to say that there are certain manual tricks that would be near impossible to pull off if you limit yourself to using only nice smooth curves.
Also, I think I do want to play around with this a bit more.

lol, ya, he second guessed himself whether he wanted to take that path or not.

I'm sorry, but I immediately loved this track the instant I heard CP.
Also, thank you for the shoutout Smile
This has such a killer vibe. It's smooth, but stop'n'go. How?! Also, I was wondering wtf was up with these massive stacks, but found out they didn't really do anything but I thought they were clever. Some of them didn't even look like stacks, but if that's a tip of the hat to somebody, I'll just turn my head now. :P
Also, incredibly well centralized. I ADORE centralized tracks and the scenery added to that effect. Bouncing him around between sides of the track and having that sense of movement but not linear movement made this really entertaining.
