Here’s a quick video of a Monster processing plant design my friend and I are in the process of perfecting. It would have been better if we had placed it on an open plain area but it still works pretty good. We are making some updates and will post another video. What are you making? What cool ideas have you expanded on? Send us your creations and we’ll show them on the site.
Earlier this month I mentioned that EE and I were goint to challenge each other to a best of 5 competition in Trials Evolution. I had some computer trouble so we had to postpone it. Now we are in full swing. We didn’t get a response from twitter with a track (imagine that) so I let Elite Effect pick the track and naturally he picks one he has a good time in. The only problem is that after a little bit of practice I now have a better time. Here are the details so far.
Loser gets embarrassed on twitter for not being good at Trials. This is a given. The track is Strike which is an Easy level track. The total of all 5 rounds will have various difficulties. Due to time in our schedules we opted for an easier track to start with.
Currently our times are
aka Scratch – 00:24.592
Elite Efffect – 00:25.720
The challenge will end this Saturday at Noon Pacific Standard Time. If you are not following EE on twitter his account is @EliteEffect so make sure to let him know he’s no longer in the lead for this challenge.
There’s building to be done in Minecraft and the forum members on xbox.com are going to do it. We’re in the process of putting things in place to make it happen. What the monument will be exactly is still undecided. It will contain a Hall of Members which will feature small monuments with a sign and the participants gamertag. Why should you care? Because, you can participate and help forge the idea of what it will be or help lay some stone. No matter how much you participate you will be included in the Hall of Members. So hit the link and say hello for the details.
Take part in creating a Minecraft Monument for the forum! – Minecraft – Forum – Minecraft – Xbox.com Forums – Xbox.com.
In case you didn’t know, Trials Evolution contains a very robust custom track editor. Which allows for some pretty crazy and cool stuff to be created by the community.
So when I stumbled upon this Portal themed track, I started to really understand some of the amazing things that can be done with the editor that Red Lynx provided. Hit the jump to see a runthrough of the track, and see how you can download it and play for yourself. Continue reading
Today I’ll send out a tweet so you can pick a track. It’s going to be a beginner track for the first one but we can use our bike of choice. Here’s a list of the track names in case you just want to pick from a list of track names.

Currently, I’m not ahead of him on any of the tracks. My total play time is considerably less than his meaning the burden lies on me. We’ll see how this goes.
Elite Effect and I have tried to challenge each other on the site in the past. It went pretty good and I won by forfeit. This time around, Elite wants a shot at redemption so I’m going to give him the opportunity. This opportunity comes in the form of Trials Evolution. Here’s how this will work. We are going to start with a beginner track chosen by those of you on twitter. Once the track is chosen usually within a day or so we’ll have one week to post the best time. We’ll make one mid week blog post to recap how the competition is going. After that, I’ll post up the final results with screen caps of the times. The Trials Challenge will be a total of 5 Rounds with the winner declared once one of us hits 3 wins. Who do you think will win?
