.... there are so many cuts now that are hindered useless! ...! but cuts are fun, hell let the bots even take the cuts, more madness you know?
Thanks for the update. I noticed just one thing on tarmac 1:On Tarmac 1 - I usually jumped over the little hill where it says "Tower" on the map. (just for fun - it's not faster!) Now that doesn't work anymore ... I guess anti-cutting measurements? I also used to smash through the tower just for fun, but now the off-track sign appears very early. (you cut a little bit too much - the red sign appears). Maybe put some terrain there? I mean you can still cut a little - even smash through the tower, but if you cut just a little bit too much, you have to reset your car (or drive back) - that does feel quite artificial and not intuitive.The player should be able to recognise the areas where you can cut and where you can't cut by DESIGN, not through invisible areas/checkpoints where you have no idea where you are allowed to drive. Just saying, it feels artificial and not intuitive. If it is possible: an option to expand the checkpoint again (as it was in every other build) would be very much appreciated.
The problem is - you can cut to a certain amount, but you have no indication to what amount. A rock would be a very clear indicator for example. You could cut right from the rock, but if you drive left from the rock you'll get the off-track-sign. just an example. My personal favourite would be ramps or terrain that let's you cut but is not necessarily faster but maybe lets you fly back onto the track again. Cutting has to be possible to a certain amount, otherwise you could push someone just a little bit off track and his red sign appears, so that he has to reset or drive back. that would be too easy I think.
Bugbear should get rid of all shortcuts in my opinion... cutting corners should be risky!!Happy Christmas everyone!

Personally i don't think shortcuts or alternative routes on a circuit actually make the racing any better. You need to first make sure the 2 routes are balanced speed wise,otherwise 1 is completely pointless. I also don't think they make the racing more exciting, as splitting the pack creates less chance of contact overall. Id rather follow someone around the circuit and take them out, rather than the person in front taking a different route and then the only opportunity for contact being when they rejoined me on the same part of track.
