Shame they didn't call Valley "European", in keeping with the continental names "American" and "Asian".

As for the post about Stadium being unrealistic.... Since when has TM been remotely realistic?

He means that Island or Coast look remotely realistic unlike Stadium which has been taken from totally nowhere.

Consider I've never used the word realistic. And I don't even mean it.
I said natural for the 6 envis and artificial for Stadium, since it looks like plastic.

Then, in theory should emerge an enviro-style "American" in the quenching of desert and island, and finally an enviro "Asian" as snow and bay.
The name "Arena" has also been posted, appearantly for the american-like environment.
Hmm, sounds like Staduim v.3.0.

But I'm in! Instand-buy for me!

BTW: In the video TM looks like it's going realistic!

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 the environment from valley to, lets say old bay? this would mean that theres nothing left from the original environment. shouldn't we be rather talking about 3 different physics instead of environments? :P

the areno environment sounds more of an type of race.
like a PvP race with obstacles :p

im a stadium player myself even though i own the licensed united game :roflol:
but im prepared for a new look for the game, even if you wont be able to play forever or eswc tracks on it...
so environments huh?
well the valley is already revealed
next there should be some kind of an american desert env?
maybe it will be similar to those desert cp races in NFS Pro Street
for the 3rd one im not sure :roflol:

I thought Vally looked exactly like where I live, but I'm in America, not Europe :P...

I wonder what they mean by Arena? I can't think of what it could be based on, unless it's a complete remake of the stadium environment with different cars, different style, and probably no football/soccer stadium :P...

Anyway, this is really amazing (and suprising :shock:) news, I can't wait to see how this turns out!...

so since coast is a bit drifty and a few players out there set them selves off to tray make drift work and failed Epicly them maybe some sort of Japan/drift environment has be or could be incorporated into it = lose speed for non drift on corners, hmmmm could be good :thumbsup:

i'm sure they'll come up with something tangible. Much like the way they nailed a good gameplay in stadum after we thought we'd already seen everything :)

They can invent so much balances between their physics and the road.

Personally, I'm going to sit here and pray that the 3rd environment is a mega overhaul of the Stadium environment. :P

Or at least I'm hoping one of the environments will have F1-style cars.

When we talk about environments, what were mostly talking about is the cars driving physics. The blocks in the environment are irrelevant.

from watching the video (not sure if its edited with several environments) but it looks like the 1 shown is a mixture of 3 in 1 so im going to guess that it goes a little something like this

ENVO 1: mix of Island, Cost and bay (shown in video)

ENVO 2: mix of Dessert, Snow and Rally (pot luck guess)

ENVO 3: mix of Stadium, Coast and Island (possible most popular environments) (pot luck guess)

They aren't actually called American and Asian, it's just their themes. I guess Valley is Europe-themed. The real names aren't known yet, except that one of them will apparently be named Arena.

I'm guessing you'll be fairly close judging by the working name "Arena" that's floating around. The only thing I can think of when I think of "Arena" is "Stadium 2.0"

But maybe, Nadeo are thinking of expanding the racing from the stadium to outer highways and streets surrounding it? If such a thing as a mix of Stadium, Coast and Island is in the works, I wouldn't be surprised if a mix of tight, stadium-style roads and dirt sections are mixed with wider highway or street blocks. Kinda like how Coast mixes tight and narrow coastal roads with wide and dedicated grand-prix circuit tracks, only with an F1-buggy vehicle and a lot of crazy drivers. I've always been intrigued by how the stadiumcar would fare on such an environment as a mixed stadium/coast/island world, especially if my above suggestion plays true.

:D

edit

I'm guessing the Arena env. may be the American-themed one (highways, closed circuits, etc etc). It may be the Asian one will be sort of Snow-like, or Nadeo may be looking towards the Japanese drifting scene and may bring an environment with cars that have to drift around corners. ;)

of course, I could be completely wrong and nadeo could just be trying to play mindgames with us :roflol: hopefully Nadeo will give us more info some time.
