Either Flatout 2 style dirt, none of that stadium stuff. OR outer space on a space station kinda like on F zero GX you know glass roof, meteors flying, past huge open space jumps, magnetic tubes, using ships as makeshift platforms would be awesome racing around at stupid speeds with the earth in the background and ships and small meteors flying past in the sky.

Well...and or, Hmmmm

All the racing modes are pretty much covered in the given environments already...But I had a thought.

What about an environment that combined Nadeo's VSK experience and TM Engine ?, Like Speedboats !

Have an environment that allowed using SpeedBoats (jet boats ?) on a buoy course...Or River environment.
Like those Jet boat races I see on TV. Them guys are WILD !
I can see wallrides or other stunt possibilities (Maybe not loops...)

Not sure how that would work of course, not being a programmer, just an idea... :D
Who knows, maybe I just handed there next title to em :wink:

Underwater and space sound cool to me. I'd like to jump between satellites or race along oceanic dorsals, but maybe this is a bit too epic for TrackMania... Better to leave them to some WipeOut/Descent franchise.
Anyway these two environments would be much more irrealistic compared to the others and I don't know if Nadeo would ever decide to go with them.

In my opinion "City" is already covered by Bay. Talented editers show us more and more that Bay can produce some of the most beautiful and complex scenery in the entire game.
"Dirt" is kinda comprised within the new Stadium.

You missed many options. As an example, I think that a "Jungle" environment would be nice although I can't conceive any original game physics for that.

maybe a kind of micro-racers environment, like driving with such a motorized scale model of a car, along all kinds of obstacles like tables, dogs, books and such... lol :roll:

"PORTAL/Prey"-like checkpoints

Post by ming » 19 Mar 2007 18:26

what the new environment definitely needs are "PORTAL/Prey"-like checkpoints...

imagine; you jump into a checkpoint on one side of the map, and jump out another checkpoint on the other side of the map...^^omfg. this would op new dimensions of track-creation.... even if this idea in not new, but implementing this system into a race game, would be pretty freaky, wouldn't it???

also the water idea sound pretty cool; with transparent underwater tubes....muuuuhhaaaa

soap-box (direct translation from french, i don't know if it means something ^^)

soap-box racing would be : no motor, no or almost no brakes, no shock-absorbers, just a a box with four wheels and a steering-wheel ^^

sounds stupid but it could give some challenging tracks i think ^^

Mikeizbak, I like that idea! pure downhill billy-cart races!

SpaceJockeys idea of Jet-boats would rock too, but could get a bit drab as you cant really build much with water except for a flat circuit..

Yeah, jungle would be great. It would be really immersive, but MT flythroughs might be tricky considering there's no way to see into dense jungle from the sky. There could be things like waterfalls that you drive through and trees that fell down over streams to make a bridge. Maybe mossy surfaces that are slippery? Or shallow running water that can be driven through? Plus some cool architecture like ancient stone buildings, altars, etc. (Mayan pyramids?)

I personally think space would be the best, dirt racing is in stadium, and jungle is basically Rally :wink:
