    Beltane from POD: Planet of Death.

    Current version of RVGL (21.0930a-1) or newer required!

    The first POD track, and also the first track that I ever played back when I only had the demo as a kid. A lot of nostalgia is attached to this one.

    It's a pretty simple track, but I imagine it will be a lot more frustrating in multiplayer, as projectiles can be fired on the oncoming traffic of players. I suggest you disable pickups if that's a bad deal for you.

    -This track includes-

    Animated sky
    Custom sounds and effects from POD
    Custom powerups

    Converted using Blender with Ray Koopa's BL4 plugin.

    This track is part of my POD conversion project called POD: Re-Volted.

  1. I love tracks from you. This one is no exception) I was inflamed when I saw that you released it. This track has a lot more light textures than usual, I like it. The sky is black and blue and the dark passageway is also on top. The lamps in the air look cool too. A little more difficult than most of the cards from you, but also very easy, I go through quickly and never get bored of this style. I love

  2. I don’t normally download tracks for other games, but I had to be curious and gave it a shot..I played the game ages ago, without sound and I remember this track somehow and…my…God. It translates to Re-Volt/RVGL so WELL. It is fun with every class, of course the faster classes gets you able to attempt a different line when you jump across the highway, this track features a few alternate paths and wide roads, making for a hectic race!

    So much so, I think this is an instant classic. I am keeping this.

  3. Man, I had so much fun playing Beltane in POD’s demo disc. My second-to-favorite track in the game, only losing to Alderon -also found in the Demo disc-.

    And now, it’s finally converted to RVGL — It’s as good as I remembered it being. Wide, fast-paced, with all the artistic detail that POD’s equivalent of Toys in The Hood has to offer. From the road, to the buildings, to the ominous skybox. Old but gold. And although the gameplay itself doesn’t translate that well into the instant-handling of Re-Volt, it is still a fun experience (If you don’t mind crossroads, that is).

    In the end, I’m glad you’re still working on this project and most of all, sharing to this scene what an underrated gem POD is. Amazing job!

  4. Had to update to fix some camera issues, sorry about that. Thanks to 607 on the forums that noticed it.

    Hope you all have fun :)

  5. Extremely well converted! Playing this track with Shara’s Wipeout ships make this an incredible good experience.

    Nice to see you still work on your POD-project from time to time, Mr. Roblinx. Again an awesome job – keep it up!
