Select a Theme


In the Track Path Editor, the landscape and terrain in which your track is set is known as the "theme". When you tap "Create New", you will be taken to the Theme Selection Screen. (The first time you tap "Create New", the track data creation tutorial, explaining the various controls, will be displayed. You can choose to view this tutorial at any time by selecting "Show Tutorial" from the Options menu.) Swipe left and right on the Theme Selection Screen to view the various themes, and tap a theme to select it. Tap the "View Theme Description" button at the bottom of the screen to display a brief introduction of each theme.

Select a Home Straight


Once you have selected a theme, a map of your selected theme will be displayed. The shadows on the map indicate gradations in height, while different types of terrain, such as forests or mountains, are highlighted in different colors. (The types of terrain that appear on the map vary according to the theme selected.)

Several numbers are displayed on the map. These indicate the potential locations where a home straight can be placed, as well as their potential alignments and the direction in which cars will race along them. (This is easier to see when the map is zoomed in.) The home straight is the foundation upon which your track data will be created. Consider the height gradation, the surrounding terrain, and the direction in which you'd like cars to race, then tap a number to select it. The home straight cannot be moved once it has been placed. Please note that if you are using the Eifel Flat theme, no numbers are displayed. The home straight can be placed in any location you like, with any alignment.

Once you have placed your home straight, the "Set Track Width" window will be displayed. Use the slider to adjust the track width, then tap OK to confirm. Once the track width is confirmed here, it cannot be changed later. Your selected track width will affect the radius of your turns and will have an influence on how difficult it is to overtake. Please note that the home straight is not affected by any adjustments you make to the track width.
