Good morning, Test Subject 8663!

Today you have been selected to go to the Aperture Science Racing Facility. Now you might think: "What is the Aperture Science Racing Facility?" Good question!

In the early years of Aperture: Science Innovators, Cave Johnson’s scientists experimented with whatever they wanted. Not everything worked as it should have though, but that wasn't going to get in the way of the progress of Science!

One of the lost and forgotten experiments has recently been rediscovered: The Aperture Science Racing Facility. This facility was specifically built to test the teleportation of fast moving objects. Unfortunately, the static placement of Portals quickly limited the progress of Science and the focus shifted to the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device.

Today you, Test Subject 8663, have been selected to go back in time to the Aperture Science Racing Facility and discover the remnants of this abandoned laboratory.


Main Features:

- 18 levels, with an estimated discovery time of ~1-2 hours
- Narrative Story with in-game voicelines available in English, French and German
- Many Easter Eggs scattered across the map
- 3 hidden Radio Transmission puzzles
- Huge amount of custom assets
- Custom mod to enhance the Testing Facility
- Innovative route with magnets, reactor boosts, barrel rolls and pipes
- Turrets, companion cubes and many other items from the original franchise

Map Update
[14-05-2022] Fixed a skippable CP in Chamber 15

FAQ:

Why do the walls look like grass and the ceiling like dirt?
The custom Mod hasn't loaded yet. The size of the mod is ~100 MB and is usually downloaded in the background. If you have the Custom Skidmarks mod enabled, please disable it by removing / renaming the ModWorks folder and restart your game. Make sure you have Download Mods enabled in the in-game settings. You can also try to play the map in Single Player modus via Play a Local Map. This will download all the assets in the foreground before the map is loaded.
The mod can also be downloaded via this link

Why can't I hear the Narrative Audio?
Unfortunately, the volume of Sound Effects in TrackMania is really low. Please slide the in-game volume to the max. The download size of all the Audio files is ~10 MB.

Why can't I see the custom Signs?
The custom Signs haven't loaded yet. The size of all the Signs is ~50 MB and is usually downloaded in the background. Make sure you have Download Signs enabled in the in-game settings.

The map is really laggy! How can I fix this?
You can improve the performance of the map by following this Setup Guide. OpenPlanet and the Tweaker plugin are highly recommended to limit the render distance for much better FPS.


Special Thanks:

I want to thank   bmx22c,   Micmo and   theblackpulse for testing my map and providing valuable feedback to improve the route. This reduced the difficulty and randomness of the map by a lot.

Massive thanks to   SapphiroN for testing my map and dealing with my endless complaining of how I hate the 6 MB filesize limit lol.

A huge thanks also goes to   bmx22c,   TheChraz and   tooInfinite for translating the Narrative Story to French and German and suggesting amazing Text-to-Speech services to improve the audio quality.

Finally I want to thank   bmx22c,   SuperNowa_FL,   Sympthome,   TheChraz and   ZaraStocher for providing me with custom items, showing me how I can create my own items via MeshModeler and fixing shadow bugs in existing items.
