Custom track creation in Diddy Kong Racing

For all of you Diddy Kong cravers out there, an interesting video depicting custom track creation has hit You Tube and it, as expected, looks freakin' awesome. we won't hold you up any longer with pointless gibberish (see: this sentence), so just head on into the post and check out the video! Do it! Do it now!

1. This game is going to rock. No Mario Kart killer, but then again that would require one hell of a lofty game. Who wants to lose to me first online when this drops?

2. looks awesome, but i was hoping for more control, like putting in scenery and stuff, but it's still kick ass

3. i'm not too hip on the deets here... does the game only create tracks that are translucent like that? can you control where the hills are, or just how many there are? it still looks pretty sweet, but even more customization options would be killer

4. I'm assuming that since this track creation tool is so damn simple it means you can use these tracks for 8 player local wifi action.

5. You had BETTER be able to use these tracks in some form of multiplayer, because yes - it looks extremely simplistic.

Bit of a let down actually... Seems the incline slider just changes the slopes in the whole track, rather than letting you sink or elevate certain sections... And there doesnt seem to be any allowance for things like loops, zippers, powerup placements, jumps, obstacles...

Shame... i doubt itll get upgraded before release, too... perhaps some homebrewers will find a way to hack it though.

6. Well it's already basically been released, so dont hope for anything special. Been playin' 'er all day. Fun game, but everyone (including me) seems to have forgotten it was just a fun game, not a great one.

7. I can't wait for this game! I know that I, personally, am going to like it a lot more than Mario Kart DS, and this makes it look so good! I am guessing that the track designer is so simple because you can share them over WiFi(5 people total in a race, I believe), and the more simple, the less lag, and the more enjoyable it is. It may not be like designing your town in Animal Crossing, but lag doesn't matter as much in ACWW, so I can see why it is so simple.
