Yeah, but as TM2 is a brand new game under ubisoft instead of focus, i doubt that there is a possibility to get a connection between the old and the new environments, due to economic interessts between this to publishers.
Maybe the car models will work, but not sure about that. But i'm pretty sure that tracks won't work.

*blinks* Why would the tracks work anyhow? Sorry for sounding stupid...but these are three entirely new environments...I.E., a whole new game from the ground up. A new Trackmania Original, so to speak. And, in 7 years, we'll probably have 7 more environments with which to play...

Thank you for your post Florent. It is nice of you to address the lack of information.
Florent wrote:We have a lot of things that are being "thinked" for the first time, and they always change a little. Communication on this type of things is always tricky. If the graphic engine is under work, you prefer not to give pictures, if the car is being changed, you prefer not to show it, if a feature is under developpement, you prefer to avoid raising the subject in case you need to postpone it after launch. etc.
That comment right there conveys a huge amount of information if even though there are no particulars.

I find it amazing that computing hardware has progressed to the point that radiosity algorithms can be use in a real time game environment. I remember almost 20 years ago trying to use them on a home PC to to speed the rendering of some mathematical models. It took half a day for my my 386sx with a math co-processor to render a single frame of a simple scene. Now... what a difference.
Again.
Thanks for the information.

TManiacs: When can we expect new material in the form of screenshots, videos or data for any of the three games?

Florent: Through many reasons there is currently little to see. The main reason is that we have to answer questions 15 610 at the same time and if we only change an answer, it can change much at the big picture or the screenshots. We also want to take any decision that we want - even a previously announced date may make it difficult for us to change something.
