1 the game is not the best i think....underground 2 was a great game
2 on line racing is not that good either....most wanted was the best
3 the challenge stages in carbon is two short...most wanted you have lots more to do
4 the graphics and highlights in carbon is pore.....underground 2 had better graphics
5 more detailed in the cars in underground 2...carbon is got great looking cars but not as many as ug2
So tell me what you think and if i am wrong then tell me......:)

It's better graphic In carbon than ug2 and carbon cars are more detailed than ug2 ones ...
And no ug2 isn't better game than carbon but MW, hp2 , hs, pu are better games .

jed29
11-17-2006, 03:19 PM
good point !!! but i think that there is a big diff in ug2 and it is because i think that there is always a betters challenge in ug2
in most wanted you can easlly see that how pore there graphics are
in carbon there are to many blind spots and i can see them
i am a computer graphic designer so i know where to look and i can see there mistakes

1. im sorry. but UG2 is such a poor game that as soon as i saw that races can only be entered with SUV, i stopped playing it. why on earth would ANYONE want to race with a brick?

3. Most Wanted's challange series are great, love the police chases.

jed29, can you tell me why MW's graphics are poor? i found it to be great, whereas Carbon's night scene is ugly.

jed29
11-18-2006, 04:26 AM
ok in some detailed parts near the golf course and some parts of the industrial you can see holes in the scenery and also some parts of the roads are porely made
maybe ug2 was ugly.....but the graphics was top shit.....thats what i am talking about not so much the racing
just the graphics

Anathema

what are you running them on? Because I thought MW graphics were way better than UG2. If I crank the settings all the way up on both of them, MW dominates, even though, yes, there are some spots where there are temporary holes in scenery.

Night scene racing is a good excuse for cutting corners on graphics... you can't see anything... my main beef with Carbon. I had to turn up the brightness just to see edges of the track, etc.

this is a huge step up from UG2. The only things, in comparison, that I miss from UG2 - Dyno Tuning and the (user input in) Drifting...

They could have not bothered with roof scoop options - and put that effort towards PU-esque physics (and some of the PU features in the game. I would LOVE to adjust Tyre preasure, again). That is about it.

As always, you win some and you lose some.

As always, you win some and you lose some.
now that's a true statement.

you win the crewman and the fun of racing 8 people
you lose the excitment of chases.

i am really not a huge fan of night scenes, as ForsakenStudios said, it's not very good for racing game. (only if you crank up the settings for volumetric lights where Carbon don't have, FEAR's lighting is perfect for a scary FPS)

jed29
11-18-2006, 04:36 PM
you are both right !!! but as i said before i am interested in the main graphics
i am using a pci express duel fuction 256 mb nvidea i have all the power i need with a fully decked computer AMD 3.7...... 4 gb ram 500 gb hd and cooling system so what i do is look for ways to make the games better and try and fix the holes....not as hard as it sounds

jstrok7
11-18-2006, 05:46 PM
@wuyanxu - Ah , F.E.A.R. Is the best FPS (Horror) game ever ! (And graphic Is incredible nice) .

@jed29 -
Well, MW or Carbon graphic aren't perfect but you can't change my mind , they are better than UG2 graphic . :P

jed29
11-18-2006, 06:34 PM
i got your point !! fear ? nothing to do with nfs
jstrok7 what do you think of hot persuit 2 ? that game was also very good....but getting back to carbon !!! the game is well made and it is a sign of better things to come
but for the mean time the fact is that carbon was a bit to easy and for the all round tests the drifting was shocking...the game was not as long as most wanted the story line wasn't the best either but from 1 to 10 i give it a 6 for all round game play

funny guy
11-18-2006, 06:40 PM
I dislike drifting in Carbon. It's frustrating and unrealistic.(especially Canyon drift, regular is not as bad) I also dislike how short the game is, and the fact that only half of the cars that were supposed to be in the game are acutally in it and easily unlocked. (for the Chevelle unlock: $1,000,000 in career mode? how are you supposed to do that in less than a year??) I also think the map roads are too far apart. Maybe the next game will be better...

Hey Guys I just was by the ea website and i saw that they had in their store cars for nfs carbon for sell. There were cars like the gallardo, viper carrera GT.
I havent bought Carbon yet but I mean werent these cars supposed to be in the original game?
If yes, than why do i see them in the store of EA?

jed29
11-18-2006, 07:11 PM
they are trying to make people buy add on cars and it is not suprising to see them hard at work doing that
the cars in the game is the basic ones and the ones in EA are supposed to be a better model
i dont think that will hit off that well
some one will buy them and you will be able to get them on sites like bear share and shareaza and kazaa
no mater what there always will be a back door to all of them

Arlind
11-18-2006, 07:37 PM
WTF?
From what i have seen the models from the game are quite cool.
And even if they had only used the same models from MW, I can say that the cars look cool enough because the gallardo, viper and carrera GT had an awsome modelling on the MW.

funny guy
11-18-2006, 08:19 PM
They are in the regular game.. That's gay

jed29
11-18-2006, 08:23 PM
but don't you want to see diff cars like fwd's and what happened to the little cars like bmw z3 z8 and mazda mx5 if they had them in it you could have more races added in the game but as i see it the super cars is all you are going to get and once again where's the ferrari's.....and where is the clk gt-r ......the game is not boring but it could of been alot better.....in carbon there is a few cars that are good but i don't think there is enough cars to be happy with.....in time it will get boring.

GT5
11-18-2006, 08:44 PM
i dont like the way the car moves (physics). they look like the rear wheels are glued dow to the ground as the car drifts...i still like it though.

jed29
11-18-2006, 10:01 PM
witch car was that one ?
the more the better i think
i would love to see a game that nfs come out with...over 100 cars that would be great
maybe a Expansion pack added on
you know a really beefy game with lots to do and more racing
that would be great and maybe a few races with about 30 laps and night and day racing mixed
wow wouldnt that be great ????

jstrok7
11-19-2006, 04:44 AM
@jed29 - Yeas It would be great , only thing left to do Is to remove ricing and the game would be perfect !

jed29
11-19-2006, 05:56 AM
haha funny
i thought that if they brought out a add on to carbon that would make it interesting

jed29
11-20-2006, 04:07 AM
nfs carbon graphics are not as good as i thought !!! i could be alot better then that !!!
i think that in time when the 64 bit really kicks in then you will see better graphics in our gaming

demoman_chaos
11-20-2006, 06:07 AM
Stop complaining about just the graphics. Heres what I think about them.
F*CK THE GRAPHICS!!!

I want to see intelligent AI, better and more cars with good bodykits. I want more destructable stuff, I want decal placing to take a few minutes, not 30 minutes(I made the General Lee in more than 35 mins.), I want some good engine sounds, better engines, more realistic upgrades for cars (like putting a 426 in place of a 440 or putting HEMI heads on a 440, etc.), and more bang with less flash.

Graphics can be HS or PU quality for all I care, just as long as I can tell waht I am doing without any trouble. Bluerays have 50 gig. (according to a PS3 commercial), use 45 gig for gameplay and the other 5 for graphics, not the other way around.


Ok, I'm done ranting.

jed29
11-20-2006, 06:43 AM
wowow thats your opinion !!! all i can say about that is good for you !!!
as far as your comment goes i am interested in parts that dont work all that much
if you are into that sort of thing great
this post is all about graphics so your comment is noted

demoman_chaos
11-20-2006, 05:43 PM
You are saying you'd rahter play something with 1 car, a stupid AI, and 1 color with AMAZING graphics over an ugly game with many cars, great AI, and many colors?
To each his own, but i'd rather have gameplay over graphics, but as long as they dont hurt gameplay, I'll take great gameplay.


I have noticed a few misses in Carbon though, corners appear from the background when you are decently close to them. A few objects in a pursuit breakers seem to go through the ground when you need them to stop the cops.

jed29
11-21-2006, 02:12 AM
what i am saying is clear !!! i am all for looking at is the graphic point of veiw and of course i love racing in carbon and mw it is a great way to have fun
but in the game i have seen mistakes in the program and it is very clear that the people of EA had rushed the game instead of taking there time and getting it right.....thats all

demoman_chaos
11-21-2006, 05:36 AM
I know what you mean. Many mistakes in Carbon that could have been prevented and fixed.
I've ALSO seen mistakes in canyon drift. Sometimes when you hit the wall, it doesn't end the drift and other times it does.
It isn't a graphical error, but it is still proof that they rushed the game and didn't check everything.

jed29
11-21-2006, 03:48 PM
thats right !! you hit the nail on the head there and another thing the drifting part is very basic if you look at ug2 the drifting was the best it was hell fun and i still love doing the drift in that game
maybe next year when they bring out another nfs they will learn from there mistakes and do it right.......but thats a big iffffffff
i am hanging out for a nfs game that will have over 100 cars and many classes it is over due
all these cars are great !!! but i would like to see more bmw's and merceds bens and more of the little cars. you know C class and corv mustangs and tuff cars for B class and the clk gt-r and lamb and vanq and other big cars for A grade.......and not to say anything about concept cars would be great too

demoman_chaos
11-21-2006, 05:41 PM
They should have used the Concept challenger in the limited edition rather than the Classic Challenger.
I'd rather drive that.


BIG MISTAKE FOUND!!!
Bodykit 1 for the mustang GT has a few missing polys. It has holes. More on one side than the other.

jed29
11-21-2006, 08:22 PM
i will have a look at that today and let you know what i think and thank you for telling me about it
and yes i agree about the Concept challenger in the limited edition

I found big mistake too , look at the last bodykit for golf R32 , In front bumper It writes golf GTI insted of R32 which Is a prove that they just used bodykit from MW !
Lazy asses (EA) !

Bigger mistake! If you look at the completely stock EVO IX, you'll notice that it is wearing an EVO VIII rear bumper. Who else could possibly pick that but me? :P

jstrok7
11-22-2006, 03:36 PM
@lancer - There are probably more such mistakes , we only didn't find them all (Well now we see how EA was precious In making this game) :P .

jed29
11-22-2006, 04:01 PM
all three cars are faulty and thats a great point even i didnt see them
well in mw they had the same body kitts
the evo is got othher parts on it and so it looks very fake
the r32 is a waste of time

Oh, now I see.
The IX body style looks cleaner than the VIII.

Another Carbon problem.
Sometimes, when you don't let the car fully load (especially bad with career cars in 2-player), the changeable textures dont appear.
And sometimes, in hood view, you see through some of the parts.

jed29
11-22-2006, 08:38 PM
i saw that too when you load them up it is all to badly made....you can see the diff in the two evo's

11-23-2006, 04:03 PM
i was playing mw last night and all at once i saw this big error.....one of the trees near the golf course was fading in and out at first i thought it was a once off problem but it is always there....they rushed that game too

From U-C, all NFSs sucked. In Carbon in the Drifting races it seems like the cars are sliding on grease.

jed29
11-24-2006, 12:26 AM
you have a big point there !!! ug2 was the best
but in carbon it really sucked i hated it big time

demoman_chaos
11-24-2006, 08:00 AM
I have a secret to Carbon drift.
I used it to get the beat the reward card challenge to get 500,000 drift points (the fact that it was a 4 lap race also helped).

If you are having trouble gaining speed for the first turn and it costs you a lot of points in later turns, try my secret........
REVERSE GEAR. Start in reverse to give yourself more room to gain speed, thus giving you more points if you don't wreck.

jed29
11-24-2006, 04:20 PM
thats very interesting !!! i will give that a go !
i am playing need for speed 4 again and it is still a very good game haha
no drifting but very good cars ;)

HSVrules
11-24-2006, 06:28 PM
Pretty much, i dont care about any of these factors, i just play it because it is a fun racing game and all these fabulous cars, i dont care about the many imperfections about the game, the point is to me, it's a game, i have it, i play it, it's just something to keep my mum from giving me lots of chores

jed29
11-24-2006, 07:23 PM
hahaha thats a good point
who likes to do house work anyway
but even if you have fun in the game and yes it has it good points, there is a lot of things in this game that didnt quite add up
so it is these things that i like to talk about

demoman_chaos
11-24-2006, 08:22 PM
Here is the one that angers me the most.

A punk in an EVO FLIPPED my CUDA!!! He side swiped me during a canyon race and over I went. Just a side to side impact that would have messed the EVO up BAD, the Cuda, not so much (considering the EVO is more plastic while the Cuda is american Iron).

And then they suddenly correct themselves with you doing nothing. hard to get used to..

jed29
11-24-2006, 09:00 PM
thats another thing !! you are right the heavy cars are stronger then the plastic cars and yet they are not joudged like that in the game

demoman_chaos
11-25-2006, 09:46 AM
And then they suddenly correct themselves with you doing nothing. hard to get used to..

That is why the D-Pad is useless for that mode. I haven't used those for years (around the time I got GT3 is the time I started using manuals, bumper/hood view, and analog control. GT4 made me use the Right analog stick for the gas a brake pedals. Used them ever since).

thats another thing !! you are right the heavy cars are stronger then the plastic cars and yet they are not joudged like that in the game

The next NFS should have a weight factor, like acceleration and such, that really controls more than just how far you can push a car.
Weight effects how hard it is to correct your car, improves traction (Lighter cars have less weight on the rear axle meaning not as much pressure to keep those tires secure), and lengthens braking distance.

jed29
11-25-2006, 02:36 PM
thats a great point and nfs is getting better and more real every year
it would be great to see that in the game as i love rear power cars and the castral supra is my fav car

i will ofcourse but this error was out of the blue

11-26-2006, 05:35 PM
thats a great point and nfs is getting better and more real every year

I find that hard to believe. I thought Most Wanted was great. It had tuners but you didn't need to modify your cars. It was like a choosing to lower ur heat level. A use for it there.

UG2 was not that great. I don't see Carbon as a great game. Its alright but not great. I'm unsure whether i will buy it. I was looking forward to the next NFS but as soon as I heard the name Carbon, I lost pretty much all interest.

this post is all about graphics so your comment is noted

um, can you point us all where you stated that this post was all about graphics? By the title "little things about carbon", it says anything to do with carbon.

Regards, GTS

11-26-2006, 09:01 PM
carbon is not all that good !! the graphics are so so and there is lots of things that i can say about carbon and all i can say is that mw and other nfs games is that carbon is good on line when you are playing as cops and the down hill drifting and canyon racing is good but thats all !!! there are so many things wrong with the game i found itt hard to find a starting point
maybe next nfs they will not rush the game and make it better,

What are you trying to make NFS? A Sim? NFS isn't meant to have these detailed stuff about cars and all cause it's an arcade game. If you want something in which weight does make a difference, play Forza.

jed29
11-27-2006, 03:29 AM
what are you going on about ? nfs is about racing and winning races....the game is about good graphics and great fun.....i am not making it into anything like sims and all i am trying to do is try and fix the problems that the game has and by the way i have fixed lots of the mistakes in carbon and writen many emails to the nfs web site on some of the real problems.
before you write something and attack me find out what i am trying to do and see what it is all about.
i am not here to waste anyones time and i am sorry you cant see my point of veiw.

I would like it better if an EVO couldn't flip me just by side-swiping me. or if I could use my muscle car as a derby car and be my own blocker.

jed29
11-27-2006, 05:47 AM
i have thought that too !! i think that it sux that you cant blk other cars and do what the others do
the evo is a plastic car and it is not as heavy as the muscle car and should not be held in the same waight.

Ricochet
11-27-2006, 09:14 AM
Well, IMO for an arcade game, the weights of the car should be same if not different as in reality. So that it could be equal. You could push him and he could push you.

TargaGuy
11-27-2006, 03:27 PM
Well done...demoman another great point. It appears that EA has made another terrible mistake. Let's rewind to the begining of the game. Neville flips this cop car over by merely touching the cop. Let's see what happens when I try to flip a cop...hmmm...nothing, that's odd. What the hell EA!

@GermanAuto93: Why should the wieghts be the same? Weight is an important factor in street racing. If weight was exually distributed according to the type of car then there would be a huge difference in the game.

jed29
11-27-2006, 03:37 PM
the waight of the car on a older type is very heavy as it is all steel !!! take the evo that car is 90% plastic and the rest ?....well who knows !! my point is that if the cars and the waight was to be fixed in the game in carbon and mw then wow that would be great...you would have a hell of a on line game play where you can take out the other cars and shit all over the plastic cars haha :)

well since its an "arcade" game why not go the whole way and give all the cars unlimited nos with top speeds exceeding 1000kmph and also give all cars wings that can make em fly..just because its an arcade game?

come on....u need some kind of reality in a game like nfs. whats the use of playing a game where a small car can push a much bigger one than itself?

jed29
11-28-2006, 02:20 AM
thats a good point !!! but i dont agree with you !! simple.....so even if it is just a game it could be better and besides you say what you like and think what you like....if you dont like to talk about my thread then go some where else and put your two cents worth in ok mate ?

demoman_chaos
11-28-2006, 05:42 AM
I'dust like to knock out my own opponents with a well timed hit during a turn (like I am an expert at doing on Test Drive: Eve of Destruction) instead of having to wait for my blocker to catch back up after he makes a mistake. And I'd like to be able to budge to computer opponents.

I dont think the weight should be a simulation, but it needs to be a factor.

jed29
11-28-2006, 06:54 AM
thats right !! i would love to knock the cars around too
but when i try i am the one that will go flying not the other cars
it is dissapointing

TriniGT
11-28-2006, 02:18 PM
You know what.. The physics do change between Drift, Canyon Duel, and the other race modes. Instead of having to code so many different modes/physics-effects - why not just do 2 (ie. Arcade and Sim)?

10 years of NFS.. Think EA needs to step up the game experience a little more

Definitely agree about the car inertia problem. Cannot recall that problem - with HP or PU

jed29
11-28-2006, 02:53 PM
once upon a time you could have a look inside the cars but as you said now thats been lost.
in the last 10 years i have seen the changes in the games and i am sorry to say that nfs high stakes is still one of the best when it comes to inertia as you can make it and design your own

demoman_chaos
11-28-2006, 03:22 PM
PU was the best. It had good graphics (not highest quality, but clean graphics and damage), the physics were great, you got driver view and could look left and right as well as diagonal, you got to do performance upgrades that were more detail than level 1 and such, tuning the cars air pressure and detailed things like that, LARGE amount of cars compared to most all others, and oyu could turn on your blinkers and other devices never used in any other game.

jed29

Did I say that? I didn't mean to make it completely unrealistic, I meant to make it simple, like Midnight Club 3, it's plain simple physics and its still a great game.

yea... thats why its my favorite nfs... the blinkers and how you could open the convertible tops just show how much they payed attention to the detail. Now we can't even turn the lights on or off... sigh

yes they did and high stakes is still my fav nfs as it never gets boring
the only thing i cant seem to play on line anymore
i think they canned it
no server
pu was also a very good nfs as it had good damage control and weather
there was a few errors in pu in some of the courses the car hit something and yet there is nothing there....did you see them in your game play ?
back to carbon you can see the mistakes in that game clearly.....

It is usually a part of the background/wall sticking out into the track or a fencepost sticking out.

i cant see it at all and so i know in tree parts of the track that they are the same.
it is the only nfs game that has errors in the road i think.
but all round game ? it is a one of the best as it had lots of work done on it.

Twisting the topic, does anyone else think EA should make unlocking cars a bit easier to understand in Carbon. I mean, half the people here don't know how the hell to unlock the MR2, AE86 and a bunch of other cars EA has apparently hidden from society. I though EA made it pretty clear on how to unlock cars in MW...why couldn't they carry that one good feature from MW into Carbon instead of all this new Autoscuplt crap?

Stop double posting, jed. Just have some patience.

NFS 5 was the BEST. The only time you it something was when you hit the wall, or was riding on it.

Back on topic: When I was "fixing" Neville's screwed up Mustang, I went to see if the holes would appear when I go the bodykit that had them (posted on previous pages), it was not messed up. It was when I did it in the MY Cars section, but not modifying Neville's.

Strange, it only appears in certain places.

Pffft, the PS2 version freezes a lot. Every time I go to "Free Roam" instead of "World Map" the game freezes. Also, if I put a new vinyl layout on my car and go to "World Map" without saving first, it freezes.

No thats just PS2 for you...Ive heard of other high res games doing the same thing to it, also making a very nice wining sound from the unit >_>
The odd thing was m 360 didnt make any noise like it was overheating, the fans didnt spin up, the disc didnt spin abnormally, noise was the normal loud ;\ It just kind locked when my cooldown bar filled. Like I said glitch....one of many apprently... MW had some...but this one has tons, and so far not being able to win money and buy cars is pissing me off...

Arghh that happened to my Brera in my first profile!
The trouble is that the Brera was the first car I customised so its the first one that appears when you click on My Cars. So whenever I try to look at ANY of my cars or make a new one, the game will crash to the desktop.

Recently I haven't even been able to start Carbon up. I get the flashscreen with the EVO and the Challenger drifting down the hill, then nothing.

Quite frankly this is not good enough. I spent good money on this game, I expect it to work properly.

N the PS2 can handle it, it's just that EA (once again) slacked on the older consoles (GC, PS2 & XBox) and focused on the new ones. I was dissapointed when I saw the quality of my friends GC Carbon game.

I agree, like I said before, Carbon and MW had the potential to look very good even on the 6th-gen consoles, its just that EA now concentrates on the new consoles, and that too hurriedly.
I mean, even HP2 for PS2 looks better than Carbon.

I've never seen any graphical glitches like that here (PC version), but that might be related to what videocard/driver you're using... Mine does crash to desktop quite regularly though, but luckily the autosave so far has always done its job properly and it only seems to crash while loading, so I just have to restart the game to continue where I left of.

the graphics was slopy and yet again it was a night game.....most wanted was a game that was better in so many ways...didnt have drifting but it would of been so much better if it did.

so what do you think will make the perfect NFS game?

i felt that nfs u2 was on the right path overall like the fine tuning and the url was hot. nfs most wanted (which brought back hot pursuit was like a blast from the past) carbon is graphically better (especially on the pc) and they fixed alotta physycs bugs (especially when using the speed breaker) too bad they (EA) cant simply put all the best aspect of the series in one game and maybe make online expansion packs. i mean **** an A give us more bang for our buck

I don't even see how it's so much better in the graphics department on PC, but perhaps that is because carbon forced me to lower the resolution from 1600x1200 down to 1280x1024 which makes it look worse even if it does have some better effects (the lighting is cool). I guess you need an 8800GTX or an SLI/crossfire setup to run carbon at 1600x1200 with all the eyecandy turned on.
As for the perfect NFS game, at the very least it should have lan play, that's the thing I'm still the most miffed about since the game most likely will not have a lot of competitions on lanparties, unless they have a reliable internet connection which usually can't be guaranteed.

Hmm, this (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6082164220224172061&q=drift) looks pretty cool to me...
Of course, if EA were to create a proper game, they could create a carreer mode where you can choose to drift if you want, but you don't have to, and the same for other things like drag races (I hate them but only because of EA's whacky control scheme for them). However, a game like that would last longer than a year, and they can't do that because then why would you buy another NFS next year?

edit: actually, this video (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4066772953169567362&q=drift) is better. It's pretty long, and somewhat boring at times, but if you stick with it (or skip through it a bit) you can see some pretty damn cool drifts.

Optional drift and option Drag, optional weather and daylight, many exotics, Ferrari's, maybe a few muscles (Like a 67 Cobra or 71 LS6 Corvette), tracks in the canyons among other places, maybe a Supra or NSX, and how bout some PU physics.

Logitech Driving Force Pro is godly... and I love the logitech wingman team for creating PC windows drivers even though it's marketed as a PS2 only wheel :D.
I havent been able to test their G25 in an actual game unfortunately, but I've played around with it a bit without it being attached to a computer and I must say the triggers behind the steering wheel (for shifting, usually) didn't feel so great... The rest of the wheel is pretty cool though, I just think I'd hate those triggers because it seemed like you had to move them pretty far before there was a click from the microswitches, and then you could move them quite a bit further, which might become quite bothersome if you'd quickly want to shift down like 3 gears.

The US has most terrain types. That's something.

BUT US areas are getting boring.
NFS should go to Europe. Just countries in and around Europe. Try some Italian roads and maybe some English roads. Include some of the Autobahn and some of the Mountains.
Only include some American cars, like the 'Vette and Viper, maybe a 'Stang, but keep it mostly european supercars and sports cars.

TargaGuy
01-12-2007, 05:22 PM
They tried to copy (and did well) Italian & surrounding areas in NFS HP2. I thought NFS HP2 had some of the best track in the series.

About the Autobahn, damn, that's when things will start going uphill, if EA travels to Europe and adds the Autobahn, sales will boom. I can already imagine driving the Bimmers and MBs down the highway. Imagine the speeds you could reach and the exilerating feel.

Carbon had a few good highways, but nothing in Carbon would compare w/ the Autobahn.

Why not have all those tracks like Redrock Ridge and Atlantica, but they're all joined with one another, i.e. Dolphin Cove to Hometown via Lost Canyons. And make them all areas, not lines of roads.

OD211
01-15-2007, 08:35 AM
How about this? First. Old tracks updated and the compatible ones modified further so that they can be linked together.

Examples:

.Hometown + Country Woods (without snow) + Summit (without snow) + Mystic Peaks (without snow) + Rocky Pass + temporary snowy weather (as in, all four tracks have snow, but not every single day)
.Redrock Ridge + Lost Canyons
.Atlantica + Aquatica
.Dolphin Cove + Vertigo Ridge
.Last Resort + Tropical (not really sure of the name, but it's that track-set from TNFS that has a beach)
.Empire City + Monolithic Studios + City (the track-set from TNFS) + Durham Road + Pacific Spirit
.etc.

Next, the areas are given names. After that, they're linked to the main city of the next NFS game. But most areas won't be able to link directly.

What do you think? Too bad for us that EA uses deadlines so this would never come since their NFS team wouldn't be able to finish it in time.

demoman_chaos
01-15-2007, 10:46 AM
Good plan. A city for the FnF tuner people, and the lcassic locations for older NFS's fans. Great landscapes with great cars and Daylight!!
Quick race weather and time of day controls. And no over-the-top bodykits for Exotics or Muscles, not even for tuners.
No more E v. M v. T, just pick a car and race it against other cars.

It won't happen though. With EA in their current mind set, well be lucky if we ever get back to the light. Especially if a new FnF comes out in 07.

If FnF is finally gone, then we will start seeing more daylight, look what happened with MW. No FnF releases and it had more of the old, less of the new, and daylight.

But NFS will NEVER be the same without Ferrari.

Yes, but ricing was near extinction before FnF. Then some idiot decided to make a car starring "tuned" cars and we have the current NFS games. Before FnF, the automotive community had a lot of intelligent people and tuners who didn't uglify and downgrade their cars. Now, we have a lot of brainwashed kids. Fortunately for me, I was one of the smarter kids when it came to cars.

If only someone could make a movie that could undo this brainwashing. . .

demoman_chaos
