Track Builder Quick Mode Update Request

I made 56 custom tracks(circuits). I don't like using MS paint, so I went with quick mode. And i got bored after 5 cups.You can see'em here. https://mkpc.malahieude.net/circuit.php?mid=2535                        toad
The size of the editor isn't big (5x5),
You can only place course specific items,
It's very hard or even pixelperfect to place things like dashpads,
And in this mode checkpoints are often broken on a course with big jumps,
And there's not a lot of course tiles.

So i recommend creators to:        up

Change custom tracks size to 10x10 or 15x15,
Add an option to manually place checkpoints,
Delete course decoration lock,
And more course tiles.

btw, i wrote this when listening to this song:

Have a nice day, MKPC players, moderators, creators and others!
I'm gonna grind some TT.

I can agree with some things here. Yes the checkpoints are broken and 6x6 (no its not 5/5) is a little small, and the deco is a little limited.

You suggested either 10x10 or 15x15, but it is actually a lot bigger than you think. (10x10=100 and 15x15=225, so that will be what some ppl make and this doesnt include crossovers) I think an increase to 8x8 maximum seems logical and people won't flood the sites with extremely long courses for the sake of mentally torturing you.

Amother thing is that it it a pain to get things pixel perfect, but clearly you haven't tried precision in complete mode, but there is one thing in quick mode that is annoying and that is the blue box that appears when the mouse hovers over the tile and ruins the pixels for that piece. (Creators will know what im talking about)

There is a way to get around this tho. You can make the course, download the image and then go into complete mode and continue from there. This way you can fix the checkpoints and add additional deco without your course looking strange. This has been used by some creators before and if you want more help I am happy to.

Yeah, I think you're right, but with 8x8 you'll make 1 min per lap max.               yoshi
What if you wanted to make a huge, 1 lap Rainbow Road?
I know about this, but when I add something to the track it turns into a part of that image.
Sometimes you need to place very much objects, then you realize you can copy it into complete mode.
By the way, editor should be beginner friendly.
Complicating creating process always doesn't lead to good things, tbh, but it doesn't mean you can't add any additional options.
People will just leave extremely long courses anyway.    ordi


Creators, help begginers!

U said something about the thing becoming part of the image, a trick would be to not add anything before you download the image. (I think this is what you are saying)

If you did want to make a big 1 lap rainbow road I suppose you could make 2 different images and use some software to put them together.
