Re: Trackmania 2 release day

ign.com says that the release date's 'TBA 2011'. That means that the release date's going to be announced in 2011 - they don't know about it yet. Not really helpful. But I think it'll be released at the time around Q3-Q4 2011. Nah, that's not how release date formula's work. TBA 2011 means that it ...

Re: File size of a custom block?

Vertex points don't take a lot of data to store. It should be fine for most people with a 1Mbit connection or better. A previous post of mine: It depends on how they store the model information. If it's in polygonal form, then yeah it could end up taking a lot of space, but that's also what your cac...

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

Yeah have to say the pircay scare is a little like you state, allthough there are some extroadinarily greedy people that steal cause they are to tight "penny pinchers" they are of course rarer than those in unfortunate circumstance. allthough in saying that, if you don't have the money then why not...

Re: What would be your first custom block?

I'm highly sceptical of custom blocks being a part of TM2. Can you imagine a server with 50 players with a track that inludes only one single custom block of a moderatly small 2mb size ? It would be a 100mb upload for the server to start the race ! not to mention difficulties with player downloads ...

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

It all comes down to this: DRM only effects paying customers. Never in gaming history has DRM worked at stopping piracy. So basically when you add such intrusive DRM to your product, you are only harming the paying customers, allowing the pirates to actually have a better version of the game than pa...

Re: Will TM2 support DirectX 11 ?

Well if it supports DX10, it can be patched later to support DX11. As modifying a DX10 engine into a DX11 one doesn't take much work. But changing a DX9 game engine into DX10/11 takes A LOT of work. It would be great if they did support DX11 though. And if they allowed us to utilize the Tessellation...

Re: What would be your first custom block?

Mister Bunny will be scenery. Based on what iv'e heard you wont be able to do such a block. My freind told me that the 2 types of blocks in TM2 are non editable blocks and editable blocks so basiclly you will probably be able to edit existing blocks but not make completely new ones. But i would pro...

Re: New Block Editor Physics

The flashing boosters don't make the track different, because they start to do their thing when you start your run, so it's always the same for everyone. If you reach it at 10 seconds it's on the same setting as for someone else who reaches it at 10 seconds into their run. There's only a difference...

Re: New Block Editor Physics

I can't believe how badly noobs fail. :roflol: Anyway. Here's something that I thought of a few days ago, only I forgot to actually mention it. With ManiaScript as well as being able to import new blocks, would it be possible to create moveable game objects? such as boxes, trashcans, windows? Also ...

Re: Features to Hope For...

Steering Wheel: The most immersive, but the slowest response and reaction time. But you have the greatest degree of control over what your car does. I don't buy the "slow response and reaction time" argument. The reaction time is only as slow or fast as your hand movements. I have never had a probl...

Re: Features to Hope For...

I did buy a steering wheel once and found it to be a pain to use. I guess Im in the minority. I find the wheel ROCKS in TM, especially in Stadium :) Oh, yea, don't get me wrong the wheel is cool, just not for me. I kept yanking it off the table and crashing into things. It does give you a bit more ...

Re: Will Trackmania 2 have a car editor?

hmm, you know what could be awesome... if there was any way of getting $ ingame to buy car parts (spoilers, exhausts, bumpers, carbon parts, rooftops, window tints, paintjobs...) I stand behind this idea :) There already is a way. You can buy coppers with real money. Then spend those coppers on car...

Re: Guess the Other 2 Enviros

one thing i was thinking about, (maybe i am wrong though as i dont really know yet how those block mutations will work), but can we still talk about environments? if we will get nearly unlimited possiblities to change the blocks, and apply mods on them, wouldn't this allow us to completely change t...
