NOOOOOOO, When would EA stop butchering the great NFS series. NFS:Carbon looks like underground + Most Wanted with more cars and more crap.

Someone has to teach EA a lesson.

Arlind
06-18-2006, 10:27 AM
Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I would really like that EA come out with a sort of Hot Pursuit 3. Most Wanted 2 style would be also OK but an Underground 3 Style it totally SUXXX.

yeah, seems like Carbon is gona be MW2
then again, Ea is one of those money making companies, and they go for money before considering what die hard fans want (sad, but we here represent only a small part of the clients that Ea is looking for)

so what i suggest we do: get a teat of programmers together, we already have the modelers, and make our own NFS game:rolleyes5
or maybe not, maybe we could all just switch to Racer:D

Guys just wait and see how its gonna turn out. Also stop hating the fact that EA has decided to put customization in their game, just because they do so doesnt mean rice will happen. Besides if some of the cars are riced/riceable deal with it. People its really not a big deal. Just because you can customize the lights or something doesnt mean you have moan the word Rice. need I say more?

I wouldnt mind as much if it wasnt the tenth NFS!! something like that should be a little bit more like the older ones, i think. to make it worse, i hate the stupid night driving. it also looks like a small selection of cars too (look at the one pic with all the cars and theres three carrera GTs) grrrrr.....

06-18-2006, 04:54 PM
Also for everyone losing it over the fact that you'll actually be able to customize your car read page 12 of the Official NFS Carbon thread. The posts on their really get my point across. When everyone grieves about ricers and yelling how horrible they look sometimes i think those cars look cool and everyone always says tuners and pretty much anything that can be visually changed is all show and no go, man your so wrong! I don't even need to explain that one. Some cars are all show and no go but some cars are good for both show and go. Heres a car that I think looks kinda cool http://www.nfs-planet.de/pic.php?images/nfsc/news/autotuningshow/0002.jpg
but a lot of you probably disagree. One more thing, I completely agree with Carcharadons post on the 12th page of the Official thread when it comes to the rice visual customization thing.

I'm with you.

I don't mind the option to tune and customize cars. Hell, if someone gave me enough money to customize a car of my choice, I'd go for it. :P

Why was I on this site again? Oh yeah, to talk with kind people about NFS, not to read posts that bash tuning and everything that's connected to it. And as far as I know, that covers the majority of the site. It's disappointing.

And no, I'm not a tuner kid.

I don't mind tuning either, but we don't bash tuners that make their cars look good and run good but we bash the ricers (sorry if it offends you, it's the only sutiable word I can think of) because they make their cars look like absolute shit and leave everything performance oriented stock except for the signature fart-can exhaust.

Well, atleast they have some nice, old muscles in there.

I HOPE that if the game has customization, it will not be NECESSARY to rice up or change the visual of the car(like UG2, yuck)

or/and

make the bodykits fit the car please. What have a rice bodykit have lost on a Lambo? Or FnF stripes on a challenger?
Why don't make these kits only for rice japanese cars (civic, supras etc...) or golfs and make eg some hotrod kits for the muscles or GTR kits for the lambo?

This would be nice(my opinion, and sorry, if someone loves *** cars, I don't), and doesnt ruin the look of the cars too much.

Anyway, my first wish is more important for me since I often like to keep the car stock(except some tribals or so...)


Some other wishes(dont know if I'd mentioned it before):
- realistic physics(like WR2)
- day AND night (day/night changes would be nice)
- real cops (yeah, MW had the greatest pursuits, but I want to have real cop cars, like Crown Victoria or Chevy Caprice/Impala)
- dash views
- addon-compatible (let's hope, dear NFScars friends...)

those screenshots sort of gave me the impression of an underground 3 instead of a mw2. drifting looks alot easier but if there's going to be cops in the races with 8 racers, it's going to be pretty ugly. in my opinion, just 4 racers was really good in mw and i would prefer if they kept it that way. the graphics don't look the best but i think they'll look better in future screens.

@ G†MN™: All right...

Rice- Any mods to a car that disgustifies, tortures, or makes a car look downright ugly, and for the fact that performance has not been increased.

Example: A car has a 3-ft fall spoiler, and the person claims it has 45794579524615761277457954756726145276176139255797 59485142761421641241676127657256712167721677512hp.

Sorry man but Not everybody has enough money to spend on there engine, Making the car look good is like 2-3grand job Alone.

know.... I was talking about it in the sense of (almost) everyone's attitude against the tuning scene. I just thought that this was the perfect opportunity to post it. Not to mention that that attitude which I tried to describe is turning a lot of potential new members away from NFSCars.

the attitude is why i visit LESS OFTEN. o and btw....

to those of who want to kill EA, go ahead and ruin ur life, like there goin to litsen to YOU person. geez, i hope to GOD that u see the sarcasm...my god with the word "rice"

P.S to thread starter. NICE link!!! i can't wait to get the game. gonna get it for the 360 along with Test Drive Unlimited. :D

THANK YOU
all of you people who hate rice, why bother, as said, about 5% of people hate the idea of nfsu2/1. does ea care?NO!!!, look at it this way, if you were a big company, would you focus spending all your time and money only giving to the 5% hence, maybe going bankrupt, or would you rather make the other 95%? (hint hint,95% is allmost 2000% more profit, i think) hello, ea cares about money, those cheap bastrds, not the people.
I agree with MDT, people who refer to tuning as rice, its an opinion, and a popularity contest hence a quote from a noob "oh my the people at nfscars hate rice, so im going to blend in by saying a hate rice...whatever that is.....mmmm rice....."
no no no, everyone has their own opinion, only real n00bs mask their opinions and rep.

Although i agree this game looks like it will have alot of n00b ricer attention, i'm still gunna buy it since it's interesting, it's new, and it's fun, i don't care much what i'm driving or how i'm driving, aslong as im havin fun.

But yes like some of us have been saying, it IS just a game and if u dont like it, dont buy it. Just go play Midnight Club 3 or somethin.

Well, this is interesting (to me atleast)
Need for Speed Carbon delivers the next generation of customization giving you the power to design and tweak your crew's cars in every way using the ground-breaking new Autosculpt™ technology.

E: I don't like this though:

"We pride ourselves on our ability to reinvent the franchise and continually uncover new and exciting trends in car culture. Canyon Racing is a real test of a driver's skill and we think it provides a fantastic game play opportunity to lean into," said Larry LaPierre, the game's executive producer.

no no, you didn't uncover anything. You just made a mind numbing game.

I know a lot of ppl have been complaining about the "FnF stripes" on that Challenger...

If you're one of them, check out the Cuda AAR... looks like a familiar paintjob... then if you know your history as per Cuda's and Challengers... *ding*

The new NFS game is now official, NFS; carbon has been officially announced with new pictures and a new trailer. The new NFS has a list of good cars. They even have an official site for NFS Carbon now right here (http://www.ea.com/nfs/carbon/us/home.jsp) .

Night-time racing

Drifting

The Good things:
Exotics

Thats 3-1. EA's not thinking anymore. Look at tha poor Gallardo, Carerra and Aston :( . I feel sorry for them. Time to turn to PGR, TDU and NFS 4-6 (although I am playing them).

Those have got to be the shittiest, muggiest looking textures I have seen for a while.

My texture mod for NFS6 easily beats those. And those are for a 2002 Game that apparently runs on GeForce 2 cards (Whilst MW struggles at minimum settings with a GeForce 4... And also has 64X64 road textures on low-res mode).

I'd at least think they'd try to convey something of importance in their trailer, though. Honestly... It's just the same thing over again.

Underground one? Fine. Underground two? If you didn't buy the first. Most Wanted? It was fun, if not complete... But this is just all the same concepts over again. They're seemingly doing what most developers are, and forgetting about gameplay, gameplay mechanics and general psychology of games to add a slew of pointless features.

Bye, NFS.

Hopefully it's not like LA Rush where you go to West Coast Customs, your car rolls in, and comes out in a varying level of good and bad, then you're forced to keep it that way, and it's the same for every save.

(PS: @MDH: Well, IMO that's just a beta version. Just check out MW. The road is low-res, while most of the environment's high-res.)

Think of it this way fellas. A tastefully modified and ramped up car, against 7 other shitbox riceburners,

As long as the car I drive is "NOT" rice, then I'm good.

Hello,

I just read in a magazine here in Norway that the release date will be in december 2007 for Playstation3 and Xbox 360.
The theme for the game will be so called "Canyon Racing".
You will start in a gang, and by racing against other gangs you will take over more of the city. But you have to race with risks, otherwise you wont get reputation. The reputation system will be similar to THQ's Juiced.

if EA was smart enough and go back to their roots instead of using their polls and shit where all those 14 year old rap loving, *** ****ing, rice blownig shitheads.. we'd get a decent game out instead of something that is nearly identical to FNF3.

and as well.. your gods all forbid the EVO from being a star car.. thats just bullshit.. I dont want to be forced to drive such a piece of shit.. its the same as the BMW in MW.. I dont want to HAVE to drive it, but the game insists, and the car handles like a boat drydocked. ****ing EA, why not let us customize the carreer mode to our OWN tastes.. if we dont want rice, we should be allowed to prevent it (and destroy it)... Thankfully the Ruiners are starting to take the word to the street and destroying real rice. (like knightrider and rich P as examples)

Funny how this thread turned from screenshots thread to flame thread. People start boasting their hate towards various different tastes. I wonder if the moderators have done anything about it or do they let this sort of stuff slip by as the topic never stated about posting your tastes and how you will not buy it?

Let me get this straight, I hate to sound like a moderator, but this thread has already turned out really stupid. From a new game and pictures being posted about what it looks like and yet I get 4 pages long full of crap about people don't like 'rice' and all.

'rice'? That word has been repeated way more than 30 times over this thread. It is over-used and it is very stupid to keep using it. What if I were to go around saying that American cars are 'bricks'? Would that sound any better? yes 'bricks' They can't steer for crap around corners, they understeer and they chew petrol like as if there was no tomorrow. Italian cars? like 'posh trash' and to see them on the road? don't tell me, they are too over-rated and I would never touch one with a ten-foot pole even with wearing an anti-radioactive suit. I'd prefer German cars over Italian trash cans anyday, you get more for what you pay for. Oh and by the way, what do you call Dodge with their Neons and Opel with their Astra? rice burners? you have got to be kidding. Grow a brain, Dodge is American brand and yet they produce 4 bangers, to not call them rice is stupid and to brand only Japanese cars as rice. The same more or less goes with Opel. Lets not forget too that Ford also produces Fiesta and all and that Lancia (Italian brand) was popular in the rally scene WITH their 4 banger.

drifting? what is wrong with that? what about drags? does it take brains to pull a car down the quarter mile? What about circuit? running around in the circle like a mouse inside its cage and trying to find an escape?.

Don't like the new game? start a new thread and post your hate about it, no-one likes to see screenshots and expect to see other people saying this game is a pile of crap and its full of ricers and stuff. If you don't like the game, Don't buy it People have already said that and I agree more or less.

Don't like the trend? Get a life who doesn't see 4 bangers around? Who doesn't like creativity?. Last but not least, do we have to be the same as you? Thank goodness we were born differently.. Just because having stupid bumper upgrades and vinyls doesn't mean its ricing it up. People are bound to have different tastes. Yes, I do not really like having vinyls and stuff, but nevertheless its a game. Just because your car does not stand out from the crowd with the non-vinyls and stuff does not mean you are not cool. Go buy a car and do up whatever you wish. Race with other people and do tell me that everyone on the road drives more or less the same car as you. A game is a game, what you do in real life is totally different.

EA Games has been stretching their desires to fulfil everyone's tastes into their game. It is not like as if they have completely forgotten and will never care about 8 bangers and Italian cars. They have tried to put people's interests into a mere game so we can more or less compete and pretend to act like real life if we wished to. Otherwise EA would be losing various consumers with different tastes. If you were to be in EA's position you would probably also understand that not ALL people like big cars, Italian brandings and/or pocket rockets. Featured cars (cars that would totally dominate other cars no matter how crap they maybe like RX-7 in Underground 2 and BMW M3 GTR in Most Wanted) are ways that EA can gain more money, every company does it regardless of who they are or what they do Again, don't like it? don't buy it. Can't stress enough.

For f**ks sake, grow some brain people and try and put up a more intelligent talk. EA does not have only rap songs in their games, from Underground to Most Wanted. Although rap maybe the highlight, but that does not mean you cannot turn it off and put whatever you want on. I also don't like rap, but so? I dealt with it, I turned off all the songs from the game AND I leave winamp playing my favourite tunes in the background if need be. Otherwise the engine is the music.

As a final note, competitions are EVERYWHERE, its not the Japs that are taking over the industries, if you opened your eyes and did some proper research, you would have noticed that most car companies around the world are in some way taken over by either GM|H or Ford respectively.
In UK: Opel is now GM, Jaguar I think is now Ford
In Japan: Nissan is taken over by Renault which is probably part of Ford as well. Mazda is partially taken over by Ford.

This list is FAR from extensive. It gives you a brief overview of who has taken what. Do tell me whos pulling the strings now, the Japs or the Yanks? Again, do please research before you make some brainless comment to indicate how stupid you are.

On a more brighter side of the note: I like the screenshots of the game, I would prefer to see a list of cars that are available in the game.

On a side note: No I don't hate v8s and I do not fully hate Italian cars, but AT LEAST I respect them for who they are and what their position is on the market. People are bound to have their tastes, and there is nothing wrong with EA trying to put that into one game as in real life, you do NOT always race against the same type of cars as yours EXCEPT if you choose to.

Man, I couldn't agree with you more. And I completely agree with Ibanez Man too. For me when it comes to customizing cars (talking about visual customization) it really depends on the car and whether it would look good with body mods or not, for example if it was an exotic I would probably leave it stock (visually) and just give it a pretty paint job and maybe some new rims or a small vinyl or two that is if it would look good on the car. When it comes to muscle cars my opinion varies usually they look really cool stock but I like customizing the mustangs. When it comes to tuners I usually like to customize them but then againj sometimes I leave them the way they are. It also depends on how I'm feeling that day, maybe I'm in the mood to personalize my car or maybe I'm in the mood for some beautiful visually stock cars. Also, about the word 'rice', I hate that word so much. I see it in almost every post in this forum. It's become like a swear word to me, I'm sick of hearing/reading it! I feel like telling some people to shut the f*** up.

Mad_dog and NFS Chaser are 100% right.
I, too am tired of people bashing other people just because their car looks strange to them.
You could paint a Ferrari dark brown with a drag-type rear wing, and it could still look nice to its owner.
Yes, I love exotics and muscle cars, but I don't hate tuners.
It's only fair that you respect other people's rights and tastes if you expect them to respect yours.
For those of you who spit on modified cars, leave their owners alone.
Grow up, and learn to respect others' tastes.
And don't be idiots, either. 'i hait rycerz, lol' 'my ecksotick makes 39830938434384039854859085808504 bhp, lmao' are words of ignorant saps.

And Ibanez Man also has a point.

Then f*cking leave. You and Mad Dog. I, along with everyone else inforces what they say about "rice".....Older NFS> Newer NFS.
Couldn't even begin to agree more.
maddog: Lets get this straight. Rice does not imply only japanese cars. As the f*cking idiots of the MW showrooms have proven, you can rice Lamborghinis and McLarens as well.
American cars are bricks? Muscle cars are a cult icon. They are easily the most respectable cars Americans have ever made. Yes, they handle badly, drink fuel, blah blah blah. Everyday, 60 million tons of acidic gasses are pumped into the sky. So it's not like the ozone is splitting thanks to muscle.
"Posh Thrash" Italians.... You wouldn't go near one with a ten foot pole wearing a radioactive suit.... Good going, fool. Italians make the best sport cars on earth. Period. You can sleep with your german cars, but there is absolutely no way they can capture the same emotion Italians do. What's the fun of a car, when you can't hear anything, can't feel the road beneath you, and can't feel it have a life of its own? Apparently the German's haven't thought about that.
If you saw a regular Astra going down the street, woud you call it rice and be serious about it? But if we saw it with a 20 foot spoiler, more neon than engine, and a show-shoveling body kit, then we would call it rice. So to call Dodge rice is as stupid as George Bush.
Does dragging need brains? Duh. But drifting is the race to be the worst driver on the track. What the hell is the fun of a supercar if all you're expected to do with it is do figure eights?
The bling/hip-hop trend well never catch on to us. I can vouch for that. To us, having a life has a very different meaning than going where the tide takes us.
Yeah, we don't like the game. And we will post about it. You can f*uck of if you can't stand it. We are all that remains of the sane NFS community. Idiots like you are the reason we don't have Ferraris in NFS.

uhu, ya, sure. if its not immature to rice your car then show me ONE grown man in a rice wagon.

mature people prefer practicality and performance over looks. mature is knowing that adding useless mods just for looks will only increase drag and weight, waste gasoline, and the whole list goes downhill. i dont think a mature person would like to do that to their car.

using the same word over and over is immature, heres a little history on the word bigot

Bigots may have more in common with God than one might think. Legend has it that Rollo, the first duke of Normandy, refused to kiss the foot of the French king Charles III, uttering the phrase bi got, his borrowing of the assumed Old English equivalent of our expression by God. Although this story is almost surely apocryphal, it is true that bigot was used by the French as a term of abuse for the Normans, but not in a religious sense. Later, however, the word, or very possibly a homonym, was used abusively in French for the Beguines, members of a Roman Catholic lay sisterhood. From the 15th century on Old French bigot meant “an excessively devoted or hypocritical person.” Bigot is first recorded in English in 1598 with the sense “a superstitious hypocrite.”

Oh, boy.
Who cares if someone's bodykitted car has upgraded performance or not?
It's not like you're molesting somebody.

I could care less if a car is riced or not.

What matters is if it is pleasing to its owner.

If everyone else hates it, too bad! That's your problem........

I really do love exotics and muscle cars, OK?

This thread has become a joke...

Rice = disgrace of the automobilistic world. It's one of the children from today's so-called "pop culture" which serves only one purpose: to drain money from consumist people (who happen to be people 10-25 years old). Talk about a product for the masses. In my book, rice belongs with Britney Spears, David Beckham or those teenager bands with a large young female following: advertisement makes them sound "cool" and they use the consumism of the masses in their favour to earn easy, fresh money.

One could say that Ferrari's been turned into a cash cow as well. At least Ferraris are expensive, and so are the souvenirs. Besides, Ferrari is the most elitist car maker on Earth and pure money doesn't always buy an automobile of theirs.

Back into the NFS subject, what we are discussing here is how EA has transformed a successful racing franchise into an object of this "pop culture", which has ricing as its automobilistic expression. It has become "cool" to rice your car, and EA, which is much, much larger than it was 7 or so years ago, is obviously interested in exploring this market as much as they can, so that they can further increase their income. The bigger you are, the more you want. And, as a result, the bigger you are, the worse is the communication with the public who actually cares about the series' future.

I'm not disrespecting the opinion of those who like rice, but, for me, rice negates the purpose of automobilism itself, which is to show examples of flawless engineering, be it for racing or transport purposes. And, even as a work of art, it's much inferior to some well thought creations like the BMW Artcars.

Things have gone awry in this thread.

A few things need to be said:

Intolerance and downright hatred seems to be floating around something so silly as car modification. No one has the right to ask anyone to change what they believe, but still respect and courtesy should be shown to others' opinions. For example, saying "Rice sucks!" is not an opinion worthy of being respected, it's a viewpoint meant to belittle others' opinions. Saying, "I really don't care for that style of modification" is an opinion.

I don't like the kind of visual tuning we are talking about. I may even have a little chuckle or have a little joke when I come upon a car of such style. I don't however, begrudge them of what they have done. It is after all, their car.

I don't like rice in that I don't like the mindset. I've talked about it many times, if you wish to know what I mean then look up one of my previous posts on the matter.

It's just plain dumb to be so intolerant about tastes in cars, especially considering the futility of such an action.

Intolerance and resistance to differences are the founding principles of racism.

I personally don't like to customize exotics visually , except sometimes if it would look good I might put on a new paintjob, maybe change rims or put on a vinyl but that's about it. I don't like to see exotics with wings and lots of body mods because I don't like that style of modification on exotics but that's just my opinion.

If you wanted to buy an F40 you needed Ferrari's approval. To buy an SLR or a Carrera GT all you need is a lot of cash. This is why people like Paris Hilton own SLRs. Celebrities owning supercars isn't wrong (these cars aren't strictly for racing anyway), but sometimes you wish the car was in better hands.

However, when they sold F40s, commendatore Enzo Ferrari was still around, so they may have changed their policy towards potential buyers in order to sell more.

And I'd like to point out that I'm not depreciating Porsche or Mercedes with my post (I actually like them more than I like Ferrari). I made this comparison so that I could exemplify what I stated in my previous post and show what I mean when I said that.

Actually, 'Enzo' Ferrari died in 1988. And weren't F40s sold after '88?

Ferrari began production of the F40 in 1987, and Enzo died on August 14th, 1988. It was the car of his life.

Is it me, or does EA uses the same engine as in previous games?

I hope that EA will spend more time on the detail of the cars. The challenger hasnt even doorlines!

And this girl just looks like the one in UG2...why not take a nice blonde?

I agree 100%.

If you wanted to buy an F40 you needed Ferrari's approval. To buy an SLR or a Carrera GT all you need is a lot of cash. This is why people like Paris Hilton own SLRs. Celebrities owning supercars isn't wrong (these cars aren't strictly for racing anyway), but sometimes you wish the car was in better hands.
Oh... I thought that you also had to get the approval of any supercar maker to buy one of their cars :\ . At least like Lamborghini and Pagani too.

Oh, okay.

But still, it's a neat car.

Btw, does Carbon have Skylines or Supras in there?
And more importantly, does it also have the Vette and/or Viper?

Nope. You MAY need Lamborghini's approval for the LP460, however Ferrari's F40, F50, Enzo and perhaps F60 (For the 60th anniversary), you need the approvals, because they're limited edition cars. So they want to know it's in good hands...and not in hands of those that have "new money" persay.

Pagini, i'm not sure either, but you probably don't. You don't for Koenigsegg, i believe the only one is Ferrari that has the approval rating since a limited number aren't being made.

For the Enzo you must own two or more Ferraris prior to the purchase.

About the boxart, I like the idea (the chemical structure of carbon) but don't know how it makes sense in the ambient of the game. The events have nothing to do with carbon apart from the car parts (carbon fibre buyable parts) and the speculated location "Carbon Canyon" is just a name.

nfscars wont die because of the hatred of rice.. as long as people are smart enough not to post such crap when Carbon comes out.. just leavnig the visuals of their cars stock when posting them, there's no reason to complain. but the ugliness of the bodykits, oversized spoilers, fartcans and the autosculpt sounds like it'll be really easy to bash, are in turn the part that is hated. Tuning and ricing are two different things.. all your cars in that rate your car thread (which should be reported) are massively riced to look like something that comes out of my dogs ***.

Well... the attitude of those members isn't driving just 'ricers' away, but also other potential new members, who can become easy targets. And that is a lot of potential new members. Sorry for trying to keep the site civil. :\

Sorry, but it's not my intention to start flamewars, basically because I despise flamewars. I'm just trying to prevent them.

Here's my question though, how come whenever someone sees, reads or hears about some form of customization they have to automatically flame it as rice because it seems like that's how most people are on NFSCars (I'm not flaming anyone I'm just asking a question).

And to think that, four years ago, this site was flooded with "rice burner" lovers... Remember Donnie Briscoe, Kremit, venom_fnf_designs and many, many others which just took Ryuji Kainoh's cars (or someone else's), put on some bodykits and magically got 100+ downloads a minute? Yeah, those kinds of addons were what I found when I first visited NFSCars. If you start analysing NFSCars' addon content you will find out that roughly 80% of the 6,000 (?) cars here are rice creations. I used to like some of them, though, because they were well-thought.

Unfortunately, you are an easy prey in this site if you don't:

- Fake a "rice-hating" behavior;
- Belong to an enclosed group (groups give power anywhere), or;
- Pretend that nothing is happening and keep on posting.

The only new members who stayed are those who bash ricers just for fun, (il)legitimate heirs of the legacy left by Redneck_guy, and Redneck_guy actually bashed ricers in a funny way (although aggressive), unlike some other people.

Another thing that pisses me off is that everyone goes rampant on EA when it comes to rice, but no one continuously criticises the horribly flawed game mechanics of the Undergrounds, which are only mentioned ocasionally (i.e. wall riding to take corners, starter cars beating much stronger ones, being able to finish the game with the starter car, unrealistic acceleration figures, catch-up logic, etc.). Of course, rice is way easier to spot than these things (which we only experience when we play the game for a good amount of time), but, IMO, gameplay is at least as important as having my favourite cars in the game. NFSU2 would have been a much better game if it had had proper balance between the cars, more complex AI and better drag and drift modes.

If you people want to get rid of ricers so much, you should suggest Sander to radically change the goal of the site so that it no longer supports the newer NFS games and is characterised as a site for the classic NFS. This way, the "nooblets" won't find what they want here, and will leave before they even think of registering. Maybe it's time to really think about it, people.

I dont mind the ricing, but what i wish was that EA could do realistic and authentic body parts like they did in Forza, EA said they "couldnt" yet Forza did just what they couldnt :\

unrealistic acceleration figures, catch-up logic
I hated the accel in UG 1-2 and the catchup was absolutely horrible in Ug1, i have never completed that game -_-

Why can't people who like to keep their cars stock respect those who like to customize their cars and vice versa (because people who do like customizing cars don't always respect people who don't)? NFSCars would be a better place if it was like that. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion (my opinion's universal) but everyone should respect eachother and their opinions.

It depends on the models I suppose; a model with very limited numbers (rare) must have approval from the going-to-be-owner to its manufacturer, so the car could be safe and not be involved in any dangerous situation cauding an accident with it.

You got some parts of my post wrong, I said that, when people criticize Underground, all of the complaints are about ricing and only a few mention the horrible in-game mechanics (which have to do with acceleration, car performance and so on). It's not ricing that kills NFSU2 (and rice in that game is way over the top), but the AI, the performance of some cars, the little money earned on each event, the wall riding, etc.

eh no i caught that....um i didnt word it right... :|
I honestly didnt care much about the ricing in ug1-2 thats what those 2 games were about, not one exotic in it. But their physics were horrible, ug1 especially, ug2 was better but still way off :\

In ug1 the catch-up and AI were soo annoying that by 111 even on easy, i couldnt beat it -_-

In ug2 the catch-up was lower a bit, so easier, and the physics were improved but were still twitchy and ended up hitting the walls several times because of the "drift" effect.
The money i never really thought of, just meant i had to focus on one car at a time, untill i switched. Although when Phadrus(gameshark.com) released a game save with 1billion dollars at start o.O i dl'd it and put it on my xbox, used it ever since.
Though i wish some of thos efunds were transferable to NFS Mw......9bil or so left on my main id....
