View Full Version : Autosculpt™: what are you thinking it will be?

Apparently the users will be abled to design their own bodykits and spoilers. Will it be good enough to be more creative than in previous games, or it will be poorly implemented and too restrictive? Are the customisers going to make rice even worse, or they will actually design amazing tuners?

Well there is more than one answear that i can choose.
In one way it will be cool to have this tool u'llbe able to make unic design of cars, in the other way i'm sick of this rice cars i prefer that ea will develop complete car design tool it should call NFS SDK. THAT will be COOL. I don't want to wait anymore to someone to crack the files. Car design will be much easier... Theye should learn from Valve (source SDK)
BUT it leads for the third option that i could choose EA cares only about the money and theye dont give a shit about our opinion....
So oi choosed the fourth option :) NFS rocks!!

I think this is to make up for the crap avaliable in the game. But lets hope its true to its word, and lets you control your team any way you want. That would be cool, at least you can see ricer paintjobs on your car when you smash them :P:D

why noy forget about the autosculpting and design a decent game instead, the playability is a bit more important than visual customization.. unless you're a noob who likes gay rice.

Yes it would be much better, and the car detail is something taht EA has never been really great at, I've heard some say who have converted meshes from NFS7 and 8 that the meshes are inaccurate and have modeled better cars.

Rackharrow
06-30-2006, 07:26 PM
@Sin: I agree: Focus more on detail/less on the effing rice factor. Seems, however, that they are bloody intent on making sure that the whole point of this game is the ricers' haven of nighttime and screwed up cars because of 12 year olds using autosculpt. EA sold out. TDU wins this round by a mile.
Of course, if you can use autosculpt to permanently alter bodykits in your game, I'd make sure I never meet a riced car again.
And Ramos is right. The S2000 and Subaru meshes were bad, from both the undergrounds. People have definately modeled better. Scratch built cars are always better than EA's crap (scratch built cars by those who know what they're doing.)

Sinister
06-30-2006, 09:05 PM
please burn rice when you see it on the roads.. take pictures... any burning rice MUST be submitted to me. as long as its your picture.

and yeah.. if EA left out the visual modding, worked on the base car design, got the tracks a little more open world, and have a few more buildings to fly through., a better career mode where you're actually helping to develop the plot with your choices rather than being such a linear game... and leave it as day racing not this punk *** gay night underground shit. then the game may have a chance. hell I doubt even the hottest women in the world stripping as the games intro, would be enough to make the rice worth while.

it could happen that EA needs to pay EVERY car company's licenses, because it all runs under their **** when they make a sdk to implement cars into the game.

ROFL just think of the abominations which will roam online mode... It will be certainly very funny to watch. But self-designed bodykits open possibilities to mimic decent IRL ones.

Anyway, what I really enjoy is to play the game. EA should remember this is no Mario Paint (which was a game from the SNES in which you merely painted and drawed things based on the Mario universe), but a racing game. I hate wasting time with superfluous stuff and cumbersome menus (this applies to every EA game including their EA Sports division). NFSMW was great, and they should've improved that instead of presenting a new feature whose only purpose is to attempt to rehash Underground.

Hopefully there can be an expert mode where you can move and create individual vertices, and import 3D files from major programs. It could be said just for the body...but through a little hack you could create new cars. ;)

LOL...maybe a "ugliest autosculpt bodykit and spoiler" contest will come up when carbon releases. Don't you mean ALMS? IRL is indy racing league. Autosculpt looks fun.. but i hope ea designers will put in better gameplay.

an interesting idea if we really can "sculpt" our own bodykits without the rice

kurdo_kolene
07-01-2006, 01:49 PM
People have definately modeled better. Scratch built cars are always better than EA's crap (scratch built cars by those who know what they're doing.)
Maybe so, but let's not forget that the modellers at EA don't spend so much time on the cars as some of the modellers here. And another thing. When your hobby becomes your job , you stop caring so much about detail.

And about Autosculpt- i'd be glad if we could make the cars look like their race versions. Otherwise i see no point in it except to produce deformed mishapen cars that would look like something that came out from a Picasso painting (no offense to Picasso's art intended).

NaBUru
07-02-2006, 06:11 AM
With "IRL" he meant "real life"; however, IRL means "in real life", so the sentence goes "but self-designed bodykits open possibilities to mimic decent in real life ones".

Sinister
07-02-2006, 12:23 PM
imagine some "sculpted" bodykits that are 12 feet wide, have 40 foot long front bumper, and a 20 foot tall spoiler on the rear end. add rice headlights, taillights, noobdoors, rims to get ****ed up etc. sculpting will be the new definition of rice.



"hey look i sculpted my rice on my civic to look like something that came out of the results of a tornado through a trailer park"

what the **** is EA thinking with such shit... Forget the bodykits and everything else, get the bodies to look good... all we need is decent looking cars with a selection of paint, .keep EVERYTHING else stock.

Sorry to break the fun but autosculp is a "tool" used in MotoGP 2 and MotoGP 3 , its just a 5h1t that lets you move the stickers and put them where ever you want... like you write yamaha and you want to stick it on the fender you just drag and drop... Duh!!!!

NFS CHASER
07-03-2006, 04:57 AM
You use sliders in NFS:C to morph the look of the bodyparts idiot. First of all, EA didn't even make MotoGP. Second of all if Game Informer and/or EA lied about autosculpt, that would result in many lawsuits and them being sued. They wouldn't want that now would they? So seriously quit giving me and other people a bunch of BS.

Just thinking: if you don't want anyof the last three NFS games, why don't you play TOCA or Project Gotham Racing? Especially the last one, it seems very similar to the early NFS releases regarding track and car choice.

You shouldn't play a game because of its name ("I hate but it's NFS, so I'll play it anyway") but because of its content and feeling.

I think autosculpt will be a good thing.

Before, I found myself frustrated with body modifications that were just too off the wall... this will alow subtle changes when wanted, and more extreme where desired. I have a feeling that it does open the door to more ridiculous combinations, but for those of us who are more "purist" in taste, it will suit us well... from what I've seen so far.

My only fear is that they won't allow broad enough modificational degrees (within the 'decent' spectrum) and all of the cars are going to come out like Most Wanted's cars did, with most ppl all picking the same bodykit and spoiler... or in this case... the same degree or percentage of whatever... same size tailpipes, same design wheels, same body/hood configuration etc. just because it's the only one or two variations that look good.

I guess we'll see...

Selecting individual bumper and skirt pieces is a bittersweet issue. You can choose the best from each category, but itll lead to more ricer crap. And the modding you can do is limited, which will suck
