A new idea for TM....

Post by Trackmaniack » 09 Aug 2008 02:37

I just thought of this while watching the Olympic opening ceremonies....which I'm sure you're ALL watching.... :wink: Anyway, I thought what if we had our own version of the Olympic Games every two years; player-hosted of course...I mean, since TMN-F is sorta the Olympics of videogames....just discuss. I just thought of it so let's see what the forum thinks.

Sort of, but I was thinking more TM-exclusive....since TMN/F has all the 'flag' cars...P.S. Sorry this reply took two days, but as I was typing it the first time, our Internet crashed and hasn't come back up.....<_<

Yeah I also remember this idea being brought up in the UK maniazones, which just fell flat in failure. The thing is actually getting people to arrange and then take part in it. I'm sure it could turn out quite brillant, but the amount of effort probably required to make it work means it's not at all likely...

Oh it was your thread about doing an Olypmics was it Dis? All I remember is it was about a year ago and there was no interest.

I'm always up for trying to create tournaments, but the ones I have done in the past have had a poor turn out, and thats with big copper incentives. Why didn't anyone fancy a 100 lap endurance race :(

Still I hope you get some volunteers (with lots of free time :D)

Scince this would be online the olympic style thing .. wouldit be called "in the middle of cyberspace but somehow related to the olympics 2008" :roflol:

A 100 lap endurance fest?

Sweet!

You would need a good track though. Fun but not too easy. Need room for mistakes to be made and room to catch up afterwards. :3

There was a post on TMX forum about something like a tm olympics. I like the idea but just make maps about the olympics. It's not so hard and put then on a server and make download link to the tracks and download them. In that way everybody takes part at the olympics.

tmnforever is nations and united makes it special. tmnforever has united. I need united!

Top Idea!
I like TM much, I've with my brother the whole TM collection: TMO, TMSX, TMN, TMUF. It's one of my favorite game series, so why not? But then must it be to on United, so Desert, Rally, Snow, Island, Bay and Coast must be included in the Olympic TrackMania. :lovetm :3 :1 :lovetm

Very nice....this thread got more activity then I thought it would. Well, the Olympics are over for the year, and I'm swamped with schoolwork, but, when I get the chance, I'll see if I can't put what little programming mojo I have to the test and come up with some TM cinematics representing the Olympics. Somebody with some modding skills help me out here. I wanna actually see if we can get this off of the ground. Anyway, what I'm looking for is maybe some type of "podium block"that either the cars can drive up on or we can skin some "people" to be on. *shrug* Again, I don't know how feasible that is, but if it can be done....
