Title: Want snow tracks? Let Bugbear know here.
Post by: Purple44 on January 10, 2014, 10:01:03 PM
This just got posted over at Mixed-surface tracks (http://community.bugbeargames.com/index.php/topic,2055.0.html) thread, so I think it time to start a snow track thread:

We're currently working on couple of tracks that feature both tarmac and gravel on the same circuit. These will be added along the way for sure.

We've got some prototype snow and mud tracks too, but they are way down the line in development at the moment. But maybe in the future... Who knows ;)

You made me smile today, this first that I have read that Bugbear is working on snow tracks!!!!  :D :D :D :D

If the snow tracks won't be ready for release, I can wait until expansion pack. The snow tracks would be a good selling point for an expansion pack.

Please, please Bugbear, release a snow map. The snow tracks were very popular in Flatout 1 and in the POLL: Favorite environment (http://community.bugbeargames.com/index.php/topic,515.0.html), the Winter forest is second at 50 votes.

I think I will start a new thread to talk about snow tracks, instead of getting off topic here.

Now that it been confirm that Bugbear is looking at snow tracks, I want to encourage Bugbear to continue developing a snow map with different track variations and hope other forum members will post here and ask Bugbear to give us snow tracks, PLEASE!

Would be criminal to leave a snow track out.

I had sooo much fun on the original snow track, and it was even better with free roam derby mode ;)  The ice lake was a carnage fest

I absolutely would love snow tracks, and mud tracks! Don't forget about those. Dry dirt isn't enough for me in derbies. Give me some muddy clay to slide around in!

What bothers me is this the idea.
If there would be a skeleton version of the field. No grass, no the surface of the track. Only geomorphology and buildings. I wonder could the this type of surfaces make surfaces that would correspond to the seasons.
Without the need to do everything from the beginning. Or design a physics engine that drop over the surface
a suitable element that would look good and would work. http://mmacklin.com/pbf_sig_preprint.pdf
Since all of the material is liquid, others just flow more slowly.

Frozen lake.
Here when I live a track opens every year on a frozen river for everyone, I mean it used to open every year, this winter lacks negative temperatures. Well, that was fun.

A frozen lake would look quite amazing for a demolition derby track but I honestly cannot see it working without some suspension of disbelief and having the track surface grip like tarmac otherwise the cars would be left uselessly spinning in their starting positions. ;D

We had fun online doing derbys on the frozen lake in Flatout 1. Going try hit someone and slide right by them.  :o

Snow and ice is needed in this game!
It is the reason why I play Flatout 1 now and then, I like to take bronze level car and then hit gold level snow track ahh that feeling when you overtake every single car and finish the race as number 1  :)
But anyway I personally want to see these snow/ice tracks in this game just pure Flatout 1 style 8)
And who knows maybe at some point those snow tracks could be used in some sort of christmas event or something?

I'm not a great fan of snow tracks. Mostly because I'm not a fan of snow. And that's mostly because I've seen snow a handful of times in my life. Anyway...

I'd like if they had a normal version of a track, like the dirt one, and a snow version. This could potentially save time as some of the work would probably be done already (no, I'm not assuming that making a snow track is as simple as clicking one checkbox).

Yup that's the one I'm talking about. That was a good idea with that. I'm all for snow stages so long as we can get snow tires. FO1 snow tracks were harsh.

In FlatOut 1 and FlatOut 2 you could replace the track textures with snow textures from the snow tracks and edit the data/global/dynamics/surface.bed file to create a snow track on a stock track.

I don't see why it would be too difficult to add that option, unless the new game engine would not be able to do the same thing.

Ice/snow tracks would definitely be amazing. I would imagine that if they did implement them they would add ice tires, as they have already differentiated gravel/track tires. Would be great if they had visible spikes or studs on them to really add to the immersion.

Yes I wan't snow!
I also want a very thick snow track (as previous poster hinted), where you almost plow trough the thickness.
I also would like a track with optional small, iced puddles (Just a small  uncovered bit under the snow, so that you must take care of the angle and speed hitting that puddle, otherwise sparing the attention will mess up the field of cars)

That additional strategic element,
you know it will be fun!

A snowboarding slope with trick pieces such as grind rails, snow mounds which act as ramps and quarter pipes would be gold.

Snow track is good idea and not only for derby.
I read about dynamic  tracks before, and I think that snow theme could be used in an interest way. For example, make a track, which cross lake or river. When cars become cross the lake, ice suddenly starts to break. Or unexpected snowslide, which was caused by explosion.

Snow tracks would be very nice! And plowed tracks could have enough high snow banks along sides, which you can lean the car bit on in turns.. too much leaning and front would could be sucked in to the banks and some spinning danger would occur.
Also really cool would be optional heavy snow rain, limiting visibility and also other cars leaving heavy "snow cloud" behind them, limiting the visibility.. one more random factor to challenge the driving and making it more fun :)

Snow tracks are for those that want more challenge to their racing. If you not careful and go to fast into turn, you get to slide off into snow blank. Also as a fun twist to derbys on a frozen lake.  :D

I can say that at this point, snow tracks aren't in the pipeline. It's not because we don't like the idea (because we absolutely do), but because we want snow to be more than just a different color for the ground :)
Going into detail in how snow behaves when you careen thru slosh and sleet takes time and resources, and currently both are focused on good ol' regular dirt.

But, since snow seems to be something you really want, that could indeed be a nice DLC idea. Snow tracks, snow modified cars, winter decals... We'll see, we'll see... ;)

It would be good too see tracks that not only snow or only dirt. Many games have only theese 2 option, everything under snow, or nothing. I really liked test drive off road canadian map, where you started in the grass, climbed up the mountain(there was snow) and down to grass again. Ofc its not possible in this game, but it would be nice too see something like, the roads partially snow-ish, like this one

Why not? :)
I mean, if we do make snow tracks, it's easy to switch between two terrain types in different parts of the track. But that's boring! What we're most of all interested in is the mixture of both -- thin ice, sleet and slosh, and the viscous mud it creates. Because when you slide from that pudding into a foot deep snow... Man, the car becomes suddenly a whole different beast to handle, and that's why, if we go for snow tracks at all, we want to do it just right :)

You shouldn't speak about DLC now, the game isn't even 20% complete. You should try to do your best to add snow tracks before the game is released, and if it takes too much ressources, make it a DLC. But you shouldn't think about making it a DLC while there are three cars and seven tracks/arenas.

Nice to hear that there'll be snow tracks at some point, though.  :)

I will be very disappointed if snow tracks don't make it into NCG at some point. I can wait until an expansion pack get release next year if need be. Snow tracks would be a good selling point for a new expansion pack.  :)

I mean, if we do make snow tracks, it's easy to switch between two terrain types in different parts of the track. But that's boring! What we're most of all interested in is the mixture of both -- thin ice, sleet and slosh, and the viscous mud it creates. Because when you slide from that pudding into a foot deep snow... Man, the car becomes suddenly a whole different beast to handle, and that's why, if we go for snow tracks at all, we want to do it just right :)

That sounds exciting, although I'm not sure the AI could handle such natural traps. Or maybe it would handle it too well lol We'll see :)

Oh my do I miss the good ol' snow tracks! they were quite a challenge in FO1!!! If we do get some snow tracks, I really hope and pray that we get better grip tires! because currently, with the American Sedan at the Sandpit, nothing is gripping that well.

Bump

A new year is here, Bugbear care to share any thoughts about making snow tracks? Or will the snow tracks be the surprise track to be held back until final version of Wreckfest get release. Would be a great surprise!!

If snow tracks make it into Wreckfest, will we see snow version of the other tracks in Wreckfest? Or will Bugbear leave that up to modders to make a snow mod that turn all tracks to snow like we did with Flatout 1?


If there snow tracks in Wreckfest, maybe we get Mur to do a snowmobile mod again and I could do another snowmobile track. :)

This is a thread that deserved to be bumped! I so badly want an icey/snow derby. Racing would be fun too, but it'd be rather epic!

Yeah, I want snow tracks too. I hate snow in real life, but in racing games it's fun!

Yes to snow tracks. As much as I love driving on snow over here, it doesn't happen often and the challenges a snow track bring with it would be welcome.

After spending 3 hours in the snow getting home from work, I really wanted to jump in weakest and knock people off the road on a snow map!

+1 SNOW!

Bump. Finnish nature in winter time is beautiful which I want to see in-game. Maybe season-option later after game final release for already released tracks? *thinking*

BugBear does not own the content to FlatOut, FlatOut2 or Ultimate Carnage anymore and can't use it, they could make something similar.

MarcellusW has his iteration of the SpeedBowl in the Workshop. It may not work with this new update, I haven't tested it yet.
