Custom paint jobs cannot be used during multiplayer events. For each world, players can build up to 3 Custom Tracks.
For each scenario/world, players can build and save 3 custom tracks. Players start by drawing the basic shape of their track, which will consist of straight track, small curves, and possibly bridges.
