Death Star is a custom track created by JimmyKaz. This was originally created back in March 2020. Despite the simplicity, this track has over a week of work put into it. There was a point where the author worked on it for 11 hours straight constantly having to go through exporting, importing, deleting polygons, fixing texture sizes, and reimporting, among other things. The minimap alone took over two hours just to get it to show up, with nearly 45 attempts to get it to properly center to the screen. The author also had to use SZS Modifier to fix checkpoint problems from KMP Cloud. He also had to deal with a problem where the collision is higher than it should be, which took nearly an hour to be figured out. The author got it to work, but then everything got misaligned; he then figured out that the KMP was getting shifted as well, which messed everything up even more. After all of that, plus another assortment of issues, he finally managed to fix the track for a release.
