Whats the next step in TM-Evolution?

Post by Atze-Peng » 02 Aug 2008 11:31

Well, that was the question I got already after TMUF was released. Already TMU wasnt a real evolution, just the stuff we had before put together with some new, mostly not really necessary, features. Kinda like a Best-Of.

So I thought, what would fit trackmania the most and I came to following conclusion.

Trackmania is all about the possibility making something in the editors. Here is the point. Trackmania should be an big editor itself. The user should be able to edit everything he want by himself.

- Menulayout (like ICQ skins)
- Drivingcam (wouldnt it be great, if you could set your cam, like you want. For every environment a different if you want, should be easy with Media Tracker)
- here comes the clue a editor to make blocks for the editor (sure this would be a big load of work for nadeo but this would give us infinite new possibilites of trackmaking)

All in all Trackmania should be an big editor in itself.

And more stuff I already forgot, but I'll remember it later on^^

Opinions and ideas are welcome.

Multiplayer track building :P

I expect the next big (paid?) thing will either be an expansion with more environments, or something with modern remakes of the current environments (more advanced physics and all). Sure, they could make another patch with more features, but they've already been doing that since 2006. I think it's about time for something new by now ^^

But of course Nadeo can be unpredictable, they might come up with something radical that no one had expected xD

He probably already thought of most of the stuff people suggest in topics like this 5 years ago. But having the idea is quite a way from having it in a finished game.

Next Step in TM. Dual Screen Racing like next-gen race game consoles. Spiltscreen would be nice.

Code: Select all

Hey, speaking of guns on cars, does anybody know of a good 'older' PC game where the goal was an arena deathmatch of the vehicular sort? I know about Full Auto, Twisted Metal, and Streets of Sim City, but are there any others?
