why don't all of us think of ideas on how the trackmania 2 menu is going to look like. My idea is that there are different mods already included in the game.

Maybe not included but if Trackmania 2 would officially support Mods, so there would be a "MODS" Section in the Menu. That would be nice.

I was thinking about this as well, but all the past menus where set up much differently from each other, they all looked very unique.

I don't think we'll know until we see it.

i think it will look practicaly the same as on forever

a single player mode and an online mode selection
and in online it will have the favourite servers, all servers and i think something else like nadeo confirmed servers or servers listed by their LP points ( not sure if LP's will be in TM2, i hope they wont xD)

i think there will be a major difference in the look of single player (offline) tracks :1

How about a button that lets you go directly to your cars, so you don't have to waste your time going from "Play Online" to "Profile, Vehicles" :island :coast :bay

Ah yeah, now where you mention this... a big red "disable all mods" button in main menu would be nice too :roflol:

Right next to the big red "disable all media tracker intros" button, please... :D

np: Matias Aguayo - Juanita (Ay Ay Ay)

i'd really prefer having all the game options inside the game instead in the launcher. this would prevent you from exiting the game for every change.

Now, on a more serious level: I'd really appreciate the possibility to choose, which type of content should be transfered via P2P. I really like to see people playing with custom car skins, team skins, and using their avatars. I don't want to have mods on tracks though and also no custom car models, like dead rats or driving toilets (such a bullshit!). So it'd be awesome if we could choose the content to be transfered among skins, models, mods, and avatars. We have the option "allow custom content" (or similar) on TMUF already, so shouldn't be too hard to add the other 3 :)

yea the same thing is bugging me, but how do you automate a system that seeks out such things, now that you mentioned it i also thought up of an idea:
if there was some way of selecting which P2P would load first like:

- advantages to track songs, effects and animations and pic's on the track

this way the song and all track media can load quicker and opponent's stuff come in second

i hope this thread will be considered by the ppl behind tm2

I must say and i did for united...... we do really need more internal control..... manually managing custom data is a ball ache
I agree the ability to control also what you would like to allow when it comes to P2P.... this is especially good idea for those on a Usage policy with their ISP's..... if guy :A: only has a monthly limit of 20GB per month and wish to see custom data then they have to limit their on-line play to a minimum which is an unfair advantage to guy :B: who has a 60GB limit or guy :C: who has unlimited usage

For those who don't understand what i just said then you may find this link a useful read http://www.talktalk.co.uk/legal/fair-usage-policy/

i like your idea, especialy because i was once the :A: guy...
actualy i had a lower monthly limit, but it doesnt matter :P

these could all be good updates in the new TM2, once again i hope they will be considered, but that is also all that i can do from my position =/

Speaking of cars, you should be able to delete car skins while in the game instead of having to exit the game just to get rid of some car skins you don't want anymore.
