Some hopes; Update 4 (Mini-Update)

Post by Xbody » 27 Feb 2010 08:22

Summary of the main ideas of the German community:

Mediatracker :roll:
- Copy&Paste of keyframes
- Undo command
- Text as vector graphics (retains sharpness)
- Export only a part of a replay
- Including trasparent videos
- Save settings of video-export

Manialinks
- Scrolling in Manialinks
- Setting of the Maniacodes(-costs) in the same file

Gameplay :pil :?:
- Sort of the maps by alphabet
- More Music
- Important signs of TMX should be integrated in the game
- Particles like snow, rain and sand
- Mud or water that splashes on the camera
- Creating of downloadable campaigns in the game by players (TM Sunrise)

Maniascript :ftw:
- The most important program-structures (if, else, while, for, switch, ...)
- Random command
- Better documentation

Editor :lovetm :1
- Entire block sections should be draggable and changeable (to select the same image on every screen)
- Creating of locators in the game
- Ghost editor (TM Sunrise)
- Automatic camera changes (in loopings, ...)
- Location marker (arrow points to the finish)

Blocks :mrgreen:
- Every block can become a booster, checkpoint or finish (selectable with check boxes)
- Block that gently slows (Negative boost)
- Booster, which accelerates in both (or each) direction/s
- The speed of boosters should be selectable (eg. 125%, 150%, etc.)
- Mud block (if you're too slow, then you get stuck)
- Updates/Ingame downloads for well-rated, self-created blocks
- Pictures, videos and texts should be placed like blocks into the track

Original thread in the German forum;

Update
Ideas around the TM community:

General

- change graphics settings ingame

Mediatracker :lol:
- Compatibility with jpg and mp3
- vector graphics

Manialinks :roll:
- Manialink's xml format; replaced by a standard open source browser engine

Gameplay
- Visual car damage (like in old versions of TMO)
- Cockpit view
- Under water cam
- Falling raindrops, autumn winds blowing leafs around, falling snow
- Racing, puzzle, stunt and platform must be retained
- See ingame dedimania records and TMX records
- Tracks made by the community
- Knockout mode
- Quicksand (keep your speed up or...)

Editor :thumbsup:
- Variable mood options
- Better stickers
- Templates

Blocks
- Adjustable friction of blocks

This would be GREAT. I can't tell you how many times placing a CP on a curve would have made the track I was working on that much better...
Cruisin' through life, TM-Style!

I have been addicted to Trackmania in the recent times. I just love editing the tracks and the cars making the whole process more challenging. The more I get into the detailing part the more I get to learn. Trackmania has been a very good experience for me. Looking forward to complete some projects that I'm currently spending much of my time on and spend more time exploring Trackmania.

After playing TM for 6 years i have some ideas:

MediaTracker:
- Cars dissapear after finish in tmf <- CHANGE IT! this was not in the other games/only in forever
- Copy/paste
- Undo!
- Remove multiple tracks
- Split function
- 3D text, like in the video trackmesa by hydrofise, only in TM
- 2D RECTANGLES

Gameplay
- By clicking s, only save from the last time you clicked del. In forever you save from when you started playing the map. Replays is getting very long then, and its hard to cut them then -.-
- Cars dirrapearing right before finish when saving a replay (Online play)
- Remove the shadow from the car when it drives in the shadow of a building!! This looks soo stupid when there is a shaow from the building + a shadow from the car.
- After playing a track, more advanced review. Like in tmo where it was play, stop, fast forward and REWIND!
- List with the people that is around you (have the same amount of medals) in single player.
- Intro video, like in tmo, s, n <3
- Crazy mode
