This article explains some must know details about building an Anki OVERDRIVE track and answers from Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
When beginning your Anki OVERDRIVE journey, we recommend starting with the Training section of the OVERDRIVE app. This tutorial guides you through the game basics and also marks the first stage of the Anki OVERDRIVE Tournament.
If you purchased OVERDRIVE with an Anki.com Bundle or additional Track Kits, only start with the track pieces included in the Starter Kit, because the Anki OVERDRIVE Training only works with a limited number of track pieces. Using more track pieces than what's included in the Starter Kit will prevent you from completing the Training.
When attempting to build Anki OVERDRIVE tracks…
In order to have the best possible experience with Anki OVERDRIVE, we have a few rules that must be followed when building an OVERDRIVE track.
- Every track must be joined into a single, complete loop.
- A loop means that a vehicle can visit every piece on the track without needing to turn around at intersections.
- All tracks must have one (and only one) Start/Finish track piece.
- The way you point the Start/Finish track piece dictates the direction of travel on the track.
- All Launch Kit track pieces are directional, so each set of Launch Kit track pieces must point in the same direction of travel as the Start/Finish track piece.
- A Start/Finish track piece cannot be directly connected to a Launch Kit track segment.
- When using the Launch kit, for best results, make sure a straight piece proceeds any jump piece.
- Collision Kit pieces may not be used as a straight piece. All 4 sides must be connected to another track piece.
- When using more than one Collision Kit, each Collision Kit track segment may not be directly connected to each other. There must be at least one other track piece in between each Collision Kit track segment.
