Coast Only Servers

Post by Capt_Hungry » 06 May 2007 23:34

Does anyone know or host a Coast environment only server? I've found one, just wondering if there are more.
As much as I think that the coast car drives like a brick, I've decided that I would like to practice more and get better.
I'd also like to learn to drift a bit too.

A good thing to learn in coast though Capt_Hungry is exactly to not drift. Not in coast. The trick is to not drift by taking the turns gently but with as much speed as you dare. Finding a good path in which you can make the turns as smooth as possible without skidding.

There's always the solo tracks and the ones downloadable from within the game and from TMX. All the practice you want, but maybe not as much fun, but can definately give a good understanding of the basics.

currently there are two only Coast server in Unmited which are often visited and there are the people from which you can teach,

NOS only coast server
and Bomb only coast server.

To learn and get the practice I recdcomend firstly to check this forum on TMX

by the way, info about environnement dedicated servers would be much welcome...

one can easily find stadium servers

Coast and island servers it is possible to find...

but specific TMO environnements servers, does anyone knows about that ? i've not seen a regular server of that kind :( because if i like to play all environments in one server sometimes, i finally find that playing one environment at a time in multiplayer allows much more progression (edit : in driving i mean, not in rank !!)

so if anyone has something to say about that :)
Nothing is closer to the truth than the false

There is not so much servers like you wish and myself as well. The server which is trying to have all the enviro and make the regualr changement of the tracks is Amiga server iin France.

The enviroments are changed every 7 maps and and all enviroments and types of the tracks are there. Mistral World selection also has all the enviroment in his server in GER.

Drake and Sabian - thanks for the info. I have the NOS server as a favorite now and I will look for the Bomb server.
I'm never sure if speed helps since more often than not, I end up crashing into the barrier........but I will take your advice to heart Drake.

I know that I can make my own server, but it's much more fun to race with others and to learn from the better drivers.

I do like to find servers that have a nice mix of environments, but it seems that stadium is the fav on most servers.
I do spend a fair amount of time on the Mistral server and have begun to hang out on the Goglu server.

its the favorite of most because most drivers there come from TMN
they arent willing to learn other environments and play only for 1/7 of the fun in TMU :')

atm ive seen
2 Coast Servers
a Bay server (dont know how long that will last)
a few island servers (including one with Demotracks)
and the stadium server

there was a BOMB rally server too, but that dissappeared i think.
