New Track Pieces

Post by Chralex » 22 Nov 2009 12:45

Just an idea...

Maybe moving obstacles?

Or walls you can smash through if your going fast enough, or knocking over things to make shortcuts and stuff, if you going fast enough.

Simpler than it sounds :L

Just a little idea.

Ive thought about this..

Stuff like. Trains. You could build train tracks to jump over and cross. Or set up movie like "jump though the train" areas. or haha.. set up roads to merge with tracks to you have to beat the train out of the tunnel or something :P

Also stuff like a Wind generators (ie windmills) i can think of anything else atm.. but trains is the main one.

What we need in the track pieces is more love to the mediatrackers--for example like the parts that have been mentioned, maybe include parked car pieces if there is to be a city environment, or maybe "people blocks" to stand on sidewalks and things...just to make it feel less like a ghost town...

If there are people blocks on the sidewalks then play Midnight Club or GTA or something like that.
If there wouldbe people on the sidewalks then most of the weird lol guys will try to drive the crap out of them.
If you get massive slowdown or punishment when you drive through people then driving extreme curves won't be that much possible anymore...

You're not getting what I'm saying. TM is nice, but I've always felt it's been "abandoned" or something...there's NOBODY in it. That would be lessened if you could just place "people blocks" or "parked-car-blocks" like you can place "tree blocks" and "track blocks"...you follow me now? They can be non-clippable, so you cant run over them, I don't even care if they're 3D...they can be 2D rendered for all I care and painted on the inside of those stadium grandstands, just as long as we have somebody watching the race...

+1, can`t agree more, I have always wanted this for ALL the enviro`s, Bay would be nicer if there was people on the streets, Fishermen and villagers on Coast would be nice, sunbathers on island ...... I would`nt even care if they are basicaliy cardboard cut-outs which are as tough as steel (like all the other obstacles such as trees bushes and tyres etc like in Geoff Crammonds GP4 game) they just would add so much more to the atmoshpere of the game.

Okay, I would think that it would be damn nice if there was a crowded tribune in Stadium or something like that :)

I'd love to move all the pieces exactly where I want, even if it's outside the environment.

how about for a twisted kind of platform/stunt thing where you have to traverse the hard platform tracks but have to impress or run over(including hitting them while drifting) but not killing them just knocking down and they get up and chase you
