15th Trackmania Anniversary in one month!

Post by Alinoa » 16 Oct 2018 08:22

Hello everyone,

The 21st November 2003 was released the first Trackmania game. For nearly 15 years, many players have discovered the Trackmania series and met people, created and shared maps, skins, videos, websites, tools, servers, controllers, mods, game mods, titles, items, music, etc.
Many online and offline competitions were run. People became friends, some of them got married thanks to Trackmania and even got Trackmania babies ^_^

[For all players]
For the 15th Trackmania Anniversary, we would like to invite you:
  • 1. to write a memory showing what Trackmania represents to you (you can add an image to your memory but it's not mandatory) or writing one of your funniest moment on Trackmania.
  • 2. to send us a screenshot illustrating the 15th Anniversary.
Memories and screenshots must be sent at trackmania-15[at]nadeo.com before November, 14th with the tag [15th TM] in the title of your email.
We will publish some memories and screenshots on our social networks and send goodies to 6 players randomly drawn.

[For events organizers]
For people who want to run events to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Trackmania, we can award winners with goodies.
Please send an email at trackmania-15[at]nadeo.com for presenting your project.
Warning: we can only ship goodies in Western and Central European countries

Example of goodies that we can ship: Image

15 years? It feels like only... 12.

Oh, wait, that's because I only started playing TrackMania with Nations ESWC. :P

Congratulations Nadeo! :lovetm

Hello !
Oops it seems like I'm a little bit late here ^^

Nevermind, it's never too late !
I recently talked with NoTimeToDrive in the game itself, didn't know you were on the forums :lol:
I've played TrackMania since the very first one too, the beta or the demo or whatever, I don't remember correctly :?

But I can tell it was the most amazing game I played for real,
I remember the Catch-me little game we used to play on the servers, so amazing.
when PowerUp came up, I could not believe it, I said to myself :
"What?? Is this an update? To me it's more like 2 completly new games inside the first one !" :lol:

But to me, the best moment in the whole story of TrackMania, was Sunrise :island
Outstanding game, beyond every hopes at the moment !
When Sunrise eXtreme came out, well...
I can't explain the real mood, only the trailer can.

This moment with the guitar riff gets me everytime

The community was so strong, especially in France.
This extension made Freestyle more popular, the whole thing was incredible.
I remember watching GIFS of freestylers in the FreestyleCup forum,
With people like Timae, Evets, Sirroco, Max160, Supayop, Jerem, Twister, Feti, WeetoS, Falcon, Titi, etc...
And also HyDroPhyse, Starbuck, Hellwood, Jambon, Cedric from focus, etc... with the amazing work they did here.
(the list is long sorry for thoses I forget here)
I wasn't active on the forums at this time, but I read all topics, watched all the gifs, did all the tricks ! (Mmmh except the "window washer" I didn't manage to do it at all :cry: )

I would like to say thank you Nadeo and Focus for all thoses moments, writed in my memory.
You all did a REAL great job here, I mean, after all thoses years, when I run Sunrise eXtreme, the game is still beautiful.
The textures and assets are realy high def for the mid 2000's era, the mood is really incredible.
Music well selected, really good user interface, very beautiful effect on the menu buttons (probably a pixel shader over a sprite or something).
Really good models, for all the environements and the cars, still smooth in 2019.
Great great job from the developers, we had all the tools we needed to mod the game, STRONG game motor, impressive renderer and physics engine. Sunrise was amazingly done, good job.

The original Sunrise gifs are no longer uploaded, but here are some gifs, made later on United with the next generation of freestylers :

Thank you again, I hope I managed to share my feelings about this portion of space and time still locked in my memory.
See ya !
