Wow...so much Island hate...I personally can't stand Rally. ALL the environments look beautiful shot into videos, especially with the double facelift of TMUF and the HD cars by bibigallaz...if you don't know, look him up on Carpark! Buy his cars, donate to the man! He's a great artist/skinner/modeler, and he deserves our props. But, back to rally, there IS no car grip. Whatsoever. And to me that makes it impossible to drive.
Cruisin' through life, TM-Style!

I don't like island very much either but coast is maybe the worst of all environments :grmblz: (there are few coast tracks i like). Even though i play with pad now I didn't improve significantly there...
Still, I hate Island too :evil:.

Bay for me.

A gamepad works best for me - tried KB, steering wheel and joystick, found them all hopeless, compared to my old Logitech rumblepad.

On the topic, because the pad is sensitive, it's difficult to pick a least likeable scenario; it's the one I'm stuck on at the time, LOL. If 'forced' to choose, I'll go for Bay, solely because of TMUF Bay C3.

Trackmaniack, on the subject of Rally cars, I hated them at first, but once you get the knack, they are manageable and they do have grip, IMO; off/on with gas, when turning sharply, tap on the brake, with the gas on, at awkward corners, etc. They are extremely skittish, takes practice. Took me a lot.

Recently downloaded the Caterham from the Carpark and had success on a couple of tracks that were giving me grief (Bay and Desert).

Yeah, it reacts the same of course, but the small model is great fun and if it helps; could be just getting better.

I' must say Rally is my least favorite, Island might be overused but it's not the worst

My least favourite is Coast, because the car handling is sooo annoying.
What's even more infuriating - it's the only environment I'm competitive on - usually if I win a race, it's on Coast. So yeah, I don't like it because I'm good at it.

That's not to say I don't like it - I like all the environments. Just that I prefer fun over skill. And I love the Coast BGM - second only to Island. I put some great music into coast as well... Haunted by Type O Negative, Clawed Hunters, Whispers of the Dead...

I don't like stadium either - but that's mostly because I'm tired of it (I had to play Nations for a year until I could buy United from a friend who couldn't install it - the stores where I live stopped carrying it before I could buy it). I couldn't get TMO to install on Vista and both copies of my TMS are lost - though I still have both CD keys and the manual. Of course getting TMUF fixed all that boredom :D.

Rally: Crap kb-hater envi no fun only stunt is good
Bay: My fav united envi
Island: I cant noslide good but slide FSs are just too funny
Coast: I have to like it to play in coast only servers

TMWii Coast cars seem to be much more forgiving than in TMUF.. I guess Coast because those tracks can be so infuriating. Fun, but still infuriating.

For me it's coast, but i still like it a little - it just wears thin a little quicker than the others for me ...I don't hate any enviro' but i suppose that's my least liked.

My least favourite environment is Rally. It's hard to drive, the car slips too much and it's not obvious to play with keyboard. Yes, I should play vith pad...
