Boats (Hydromania)

Post by Lyian » 11 Jan 2010 20:41

How bout not just cars, but boats? Speed boats, racing boats, jet-skis. This would introduce a whole new ball of wax of challenges for developers so i doubt we'd see it in this game (maybe expansion?) but id be neat if we could do more with the water in the game, make a course out of it and race on the water. Jumping over land, racing through water channels (maybe sewers)

Just a thought.

Nadeo (Trackmania's developer) already has a boat-racing game called Virtual Skipper. It's like a realistic Trackmania with sailboats. However, your suggestion about having water racing in Trackmania isn't a bad idea! Nadeo could add in an expansion pack a sort of hovercraft so that you could race on both land and water. Depending on how they design the environment for the hovercraft, it could add a freeform element to racing.

Hold on don't be so hasty with this idea..... it could work
Different levels of land mass, Jet ski / water ski jumps, water placed loops, high water drops (waterfall) forcing boat under water going threw underwater caves, artificial wall rides and corkscrew pieces..... Tropical - jungle style environment = Great fun :thumbsup:

Try to Vision Island where the road is water and the grass is cliff faces and foliage meets Wave Race style physics / handling sort of thing

I don't think it's a good idea... Trackmania should be left as it is, imo :)

what about react-able boats? i mean if you use a boat to drive on like in coast if you drive or land at the front the boat will tilt
i don't know may be not such a cool idea if you think deeply about it and what's to say they will place boats in TM2
but hey no harm in scratching at some idea's ehy?

Trackmania could open up a whole new series of games by creating vehicle specific subtitles. The core foundation is already here, just change out the vehicles, tracks and track making blocks. As a designer, inventor and beta testor, I say lets do this!

Expand TM with new games, and incorporate the same environments using motorcycles, boats and aircraft. Imagine TM Moto, TM Aqua and TM Air! TM moto could have motorcross, circle tracks, street races and cross country. Aqua could include jet skis and powerboat races, as well as Virtual Skipper sailboat races. Air could include Reno style air races, barn storming circuits and air show stunts. Maybe even add a DIRT environment for Monster trucks and motorcycles.

Players can buy the core game, and then purchase each new subtitle as an expansion pack. WOW, lets get started!

As long as their add-on's for one game, that would be great!

This way, each game uses the same profile (ie copper pool) and dedicated servers could mix different type in one, rather than having to have a server for each type.

I know this is old, but i still like the idea :)
