Let me be the first to congratulate you on an absolutely insane map!  :) Wonderful. How you did that is totally awesome and cool.

Props to you.

LOL, of course you did. But it was still funny as heck to observe the little packet traveling as it did. Took a lot of careful design I'd say.

I had to watch. It took me a moment to realize how you were making it move all over the place. Awsome map, if not just because of that... ;)

Rather clever map Id have to say. Took some careful timing Id bet. Did you use trial and error to set it up, or did you do something extremely clever?

Wow, brilliant! Reminds me of the user-made PF tracks on Trackmania (if you don't have Trackmania, it's worth downloading it - for free - on Steam just for those, you just press forwards and amazing things happen).

Very inventive use of micro rifts too ;)

Owh dammit, of course I should have disabled microrifts :)

Thanks for all the (positive) comments. I used calculations to time the events roughly, and then used trial and error to fine tune everything. All in all it took me quite some hours to make.

Did you pause the game while the starting message was there? If you have even minimal times inbetween it won't work properly.
