Themed Lego Extreme Track Competition, Round 2

Remember when I said there would be another one of these soon in June, and then again in July? Well, 3 months later, here's the second installment! Zeino and I would like to invite you to another round of our Themed Lego Extreme Track Competition!

Rules
The goal of the competition is to create a Lego Extreme track fitting a certain theme. These tracks will then be judged in a poll by all those willing to do so, after which a winner is declared.
Changes to a default Lego track can range from simple texture swaps to fully modelled environments, as long as the raceline is still largely based on that of the original Lego one. For reference, The Catacombs is a good example of how far you are allowed to push the boundaries.

Details
Last round, the theme was Spring to go along with the time of year. While the theme is not bound to always be relevant to current events, we are actually gonna do something similar this time; the theme will be Halloween. This doesn't have to be your stereotypical jack-o'-lanterns and candy; anything spooky is welcome. The submission deadline is 27/10/2019, at 24:00 UTC. To enter, all you need to do is send your submission to either Tryxn (Zeino)#7121 or Wichilie#8974 on Discord, before the deadline passes.
You can get the latest version of the Track Editor here.

We hope to see your track soon!

Cool to see this back. Got a few fun ideas, just need to think of how to implement them within a lego frame. Hopefully a few more entries too

Since this competiton coincidently shares its theme with the recently announced Halloween Carnival, any tracks that are submitted qualify for its tracklist. If you want your track to be raced there, make sure to submit it before 24/10/2019 at 1800 UTC instead of the regular deadline.

Schizophrenia is without a doubt the standout here for me. Just like Beehive Valley Adventures last round this track does something completely new with the game that hasn't been done before and succeeds at what it sets out to do incredibly well. It's likely the closest we'll ever get to a true horror map and to do that within the bounds of a lego extreme track is insanely impressive.

My votes goes to both Skeleton Rave and Nightmare. Both tracks use great ideas, and both are very well made.

The dancing skeletons and the DJ in front of the crowd at Skeleton Rave are so funny to watch. I love the combination of the music and the light effects. The overall very dark track combined with the skeletons and the light effects fit together very well. The raceline itself is short and nice.

Nightmare is also very well made! A lot of cool ideas are put together in the track, and all this ideas also fit very well. I like the red/white color scheme very much. The big skull with the moving mouth part is wicked cool. Also the other little details like the eyes on the road, or the ghosts are really well made. Also, this track use customized fxpages, which is worth an extra point.

Good job, Alex and Floke!

Too sad, Wichilie didn't finished his track. The concept looks good, but as it is WIP, it's also pretty empty and a little bit boring to drive at the moment. I'm really looking forward for the full version of this track.

To my surprise, I like all of the tracks! A lot of creativity. And two out of 4 tracks weren't even Halloween-themed! :P

My favourites are Schizophrenia and Miner's End [WIP]. Both have got good atmosphere, and the former, like Alex said, seems to do something completely unique. Miner's End was the only track that was truly fun to race for me, when counting only the racing itself, and not the fun special effects, that's why I voted for that one as well. However, to make it a really outstanding track, it should get some more atmosphere. The title "Miner's End" seems to suggest a story about a miner; however, there is really no sign of any mining ever having taken place around the track. If you could tell a story with this track, it would be amazing. :)
