I'd make a curved Boost block. This discussion raises a question in my mind: When you download a track with custom blocks, will the custom blocks be downloaded automatically with the track, or will the custom blocks have to be downloaded separately?

I'm pretty sure in some press releases Nadeo stated that the blocks would be available for download, but possibly they download with tracks as well? Just like mods and songs do when played online? Who knows :P

I'm building a... hmm, I don't know maybe an UNDERWATER PIECE! :D

I would build an underwater glass tunel, where you can see the see.
I would also build a train station set...

I'd build a Camelback Loop.

Basically, it is a shape that is 2 half-loops connected by 2 reversing half-corkscrews.

I have a new idea: i would make Bikini Bottom. I create the Pinapple of spongebob, the Krusty Krab, and such things. And if somebody makes that patty-mobile from Spongebob the Movie it is complete!
My old signature was awful, so i removed it.

this isnt standard. You just edited some ingame blocks and made it your own....

Nice to see that but a nice block are things that exist now and can be made fast.

A nice custom block would be an upside down finish or checkpoint.

Code: Select all

tmnforever is nations and united makes it special. tmnforever has united. I need united!

Tbh unless you have a very specific idea of something that isn`t part of the game (like the F-zero or Mario blocks (bit of a Nintendo theme there hmm) which have been mentioned accross these threads) isn`t this pretty pointless to disscuss atm, Wouldn`t it be a better idea to wait a bit and actually find out what the game does come with first? For all we know there may be upside down CP`s and things in it. From the video at the Paris FJV there isn`t actually that many blocks seen, some agreed but NO way near a whole blockset, not even for one environment.

So unless you want to build something fantasy which is Guaranteed NOT to be in there atm much of this disscussion is pointless until the next big press release.

My first block if I could make one would be a funnel finish of some sort.
Image a finish that would keep one from jumping over it at an upward or horizontal trajectory. But beside that wouldn't one have to actually see the environments to see what is missing before we get into what custom blocks we would make?

They look not like you have them now!

An office building with an open window you jump into, drive through and out the other side.

Would be even better if The windows could be smashable and little tables and chairs that move when you hit them :L
