Thank you retro <3

Here they are in seasonal particular order:






Design for "Super Villain" is to stagger advantage and disadvantage. Power head in some sections, get caught up to and passed in handling, but not punishing to power builds in handling section such as Iron Giant.

Example, Iron Giant can get a good lead early, but then will be caught up to, potentially passed in slow speed, but opportunities to keep from falling behind. Final stretch to try and catch up or pass.

Exciting as small car as you try and catch up and get lead, with tension as they are catching up as you approach finish.

Nope, you can go wild! But choose wisely depending on the type of route you design.

Just make sure it within the requirements in the asset and post.

Every time I try and view the share code in the event I just created for the competition, it just says, “There was an error retrieving the share code, please try again later.”

Unfortunately you need the share code as part of your entry in this competition, but why does it keep giving me this error?? Is there any reason for this?

Changed to match seasonal events... (I thought that the Terms, and Conditions were the rules.)
I wanted to make a hard, fast road race, and this is a hard, fast road race. It never tries to catch you out, it just tests your skill on natural bends with no blind spots. Perfect for Ferrari, and Lamborghini!

I created this route with A Class in mind. Though I did my best to mark out corners with checkpoints, I highly recommend using the full racing line.
The AI is competitive, but I’ve seen it miss checkpoints as it has a tendency to go three wide at some corners.

I took mine on the Route Select screen when I made a new blueprint. So go to Create Blueprint, select a Car Theme, go to Route Select, highlight your route and take a screenshot of that.

This is a circuit and the drivatars don't have any major issues driving and finishing it. It takes approximately 5-6 minutes for a 3 lap race (on A class) and is confined to the streets of Edinburgh. Usually you can see the next checkpoint when approaching one. It transforms from a foggy night to day by the time the race is finished.

The easiest way is to share to twitter, and then open the image on a new tab, and then grab the image location which you then edit...


Get rid of the end part...

Based in the Autumn, this is a race created by extending the original location race track. For those who stay or have visited Bamburgh you will know that there is a little tearoom called the "Copper Kettle" which gives credit to this races name. Drivatars have no issue keeping up. No Class Restrictions.

SUMMER ROUTE

Here's my Summer event, a Sprint Road Race. A bone stock 458 Italia should be able to complete it in around 6 minutes. It's a tour around the North-Eastern portion of the map, visiting both Bamburgh and Edinburgh, starting from the beach and finishing in the forest. When designing the track, I was trying to emulate the traditional long corners and beautiful sunsets you would expect to be stage of the titular Raging Bull and Prancing Horse's high speed battles. After entire generations of racing games, this duel is practically an institution. I couldn't resist having a technical section: the corners get progressively more insidious as you move towards the finish line. I chose S1 instead of the faster class to allow older models to be competitive, and thus involve a larger portion of the histories of these most famous of car makes.

AUTUMN ROUTE

Gamertag: BabySeal363
Event Name: Raiders of the Lost Garage
Start Location: Ambleside Loop Cross Country
Share Code: 104760790





And here is my Autumn event, again a Sprint Road Race. A bone stock '65 Mini Cooper S should be able to complete in just over 8 minutes, while the more recent '92 VW Golf can do it in just over 7 minutes. I'm confident players with heavily tuned D class cars can get much, much faster lap times. Autumn is the perfect season to drive through the yellow-leaved forests with lush rivers and watefalls. The challenge in the making of this track was two-fold: first, it had to enable cars to showcase their immense weight differences, meaning a variety of elevation changes and corners, with opportunities for both agile lightweights and wall-destroying, corner-cutting heavies; secondly, it had to lead the players to the mysterious unused building teased in the latest #TorbenTuesday. That's where the finish line is, so if you want to know where is that garage-like building, play this event and it'll take you there! The combination of these two peculiar features is the reason I chose the name of this very much adventurous Sprint Race. D may not be the most popular of all the classes, but it's the one with most vehicles in this most peculiar division, and the one with both the lightest and the heaviest of FH4's car list.

WINTER ROUTE

Gamertag: BabySeal363
Event Name: 4WD Ronin
Start Location: Mudkickers' 4X4 Scramble
Share Code: 950112400





My Winter event is my most experimental yet. This Rally Trail is a democratic mix of tarmac and gravel and snow, and of gentle corners and airtight hairpins. A bone stock '99 Lancer Evo VI should be able to finish it comfortably well under 8 minutes. So what's so special about this track and its design? I wanted to convey feelings you wouldn't ordinarily associate with the Horizon Festival. Namely, utter, crushing despair, fear and loneliness. In other words: is it possible to make a horror movie out of a Custom Blueprint? I attempt this by having the entire race take place in an impenetrably dark, foggy night, away from urban areas. Drive fast enough like a proper Japanese wandering warrior, and the Drivatars will no longer accompany you and help you see what dangers lie ahead with their own headlights. At times, even the path itself will abandon you, buried under lots of snow. Welcome to Great Britain.






SPRING ROUTE

Gamertag: BabySeal363
Event Name: Journey to the West
Start Location: Bamburgh Coast Circuit
Share Code: 140640520





This Spring event is my final Sprint Race and concludes my entries. It stages a coast-to-coast duel between the two famous pony cars, fought on a selection of some of the fastest and nicest roads on the FH4's Mainland map, including a section of the motorway, or highway as the Americans would have it, and the Horizon Festival. This course is designed for the mighty V8s made in USA, currently headed in the direction of the Land of the Free. The weather is far better than the flyer would have you believe, I selected Clear Post-Rain, meaning there's just some water on the road at the beginning. A bone stock '17 Camaro ZL1 is able to run a 6 minute time, it handles the wet roads perfectly. I chose S1 because it is the class with the greatest amount of stock Camaros, which can also be increased by tuning earlier models. Mustangs are more numerous and more evenly distributed. I know I'm biased, but I really, really enjoy racing, or even just driving at cruising speed, along the roads on this track.



I must say the updated Route Creator made the process of making all these routes much easier. Shout out to the developers adding a very welcome feature to the game! Keep up the good work!

You need to drive your own custom race until the end, after which you'll be able to generate the code.
