    No world render and justification for your criticism? This seems lazily written and quickly made, regardless if the feedback is accurate or not.

    2. I can add arrows for where you need to go, that's fair enough.
    3. The broken cave background is the main part of the aesthetic, it shows glimpses of the snowy weather in the background and gives it a good look.
    4. I purposely made it so that snowy rocks were in clusters, not just lines because I know how bad they can be. The only point in which I made them in lines was when I needed to because of how the track was designed.
    5. The white blocks were there to add texture so that the world didn't just look like bland grey snowy rocks.
    6. The tangram was because I needed to fill space, and I still used it in the race as the final stretch so its not like it's just sitting there doing nothing.

    Also before going and crapping on others derbies, how about you make one of your own if ours are "so bad".

    This list isn't necessary. It'll just hurt people's feelings. Maybe you could personally message them rather than post about it?

    i am thankful i even got a 4/10, i really do enjoy racing, and building races, and love the feedback.
    races can come in all sorts of sizes and shapes, you could build an environmental race, or have it revolve around a pixel art, or go through it, and i still see these as races. I will try to improve my race to the highest i think it can be and i wish everyone good luck!

    1. you quite literally described the problem. they are the in game sprites, not very original.
    2. arrows are always nice to have, thank you.
    3. personal preference for the broken background i guess.
    4. yes i appreciate that there are clusters at the top. the race would be improved if you varied the width of the blocks and the width of the gaps between the blocks.
    5. again, personal preference i suppose.
    6. there are better space fillers than Tangram text, not sure if you read the other reviews but i did mention that world render should not be a high priority thing.

    I was not "Crapping" on other derbies, I did like both neonderby and metroprix. i hope for more like these. Sorry if you were offended, I'm not one for sugar coating things.

    I have also made my own derby, you can check at GREENHILLDERBY.

    given that the vote is a community vote, i see no reason as to not voice my opinion publicly also.

    I don't get what you guys are on about, the title literally says PERSONAL ratings. So you shouldn't feel insulted because he gave you his, and I emphasise, PERSONAL opinions. It's just his own vision of what a race world should be. Him making worlds or not should never be an argument made to silence criticism.

    I was tossing up whether to include renders or not, decided against since i am not an advocate for "design for the render"

    Everything here is understandable except #1. If you were trying to say that they were unoriginal to begin with, then yeah I totally get it. It’s not original, as I’m not too good of an artist so I’m working with what I got but the way you worded it in the review made it seem like they just looked bad in general, not that they were unoriginal.

    Also, I’ll check out your derby

    These are interesting. I might make one as well. I suggest adding renders though since IDK what worlds you're talking about (I can help you with that if you're lazy).

    Looking forward for you to rate my world, Im.
