I've done a round of obsessive riverbank tweaks, and the result is a course that's a little nicer to look at, makes some more sense in a few places, and is a little tighter and windy-er overall.
Acis has expressed interest in adding obstacles and other interesting things to the course, so let's brainstorm in this thread, and then organize building parties!
Anyone not familiar with the course, it's a one hour and fifteen minute loop around spawn. Go to the starting area any time you have an hour to kill: /res tp boatrace
Many Bothans died to bring us this course.
I'll edit this post with an official list of stuff we'll include here:
1. add waterfalls (with lifts in opposite direction)
2. use lift tech to launch racers to impede progress allowing people to catch up in a fun way
3. floating animal hordes
4. [more happy fun race items here]
