About future of Grand 2

Post by LeGmask » 25 Nov 2019, 20:27


Sorry! We can't continue to dev Grand 2, since after a while we've seen that it is nealry impossible to do good-enough working version with current ManiaPlanet :cry:.

The map editor api is way too incomplete currently, as says BigBang1112 and me, on these topics:
o viewtopic.php?f=279&t=46321
o viewtopic.php?f=264&t=46282&p=309869
The conclusion of above is: maniaplanet lacks script availability for items and ghost blocks in CMapEditorPlugin context.
And secondly:
We can't have good connection for rest api (http session toggles between 2 connections) with CHttpManager.

So, it is a big disappointment. We see ourselves in the obligation to pause the development of Grand 2, in a hope that one day the api permit to do things we need for continue.

And for me, I will continue to do some dev: maybe learn javascript or add things to map editor, which maybe can added to grand, if the future permits… The start of Grand 2 was very rewarding for me, since I have learned the base of ManiaScript and ManiaLink and I have spent really good time to do that. So, if I disappear it is only to come back stronger!

Best regards,

This is such an important project. I really want to have multiplayer map editing in Trackmania, with the ability to do everything we can normally (blocks, items, cut/paste, etc.)

It's something we've dreamed about for years, going back even before Canyon.

TM has a lot of players who love to drive. But also a lot of passionate builders who enjoy collaborating with each other. Being able to sit in the same map, add and remove blocks, have your friend test drive as you build. It's all very exciting.

Please Nadeo, do what you can to make it possible for the community to create this feature, adding the necessary Editor APIs, etc. We're passionate about this feature and this project and we want to make it happen!

Would be really cool if the required functionality could be added, because I'd love to do some duo mapping with this feature in the future.

+1 ...
or should I rather say.. Yes support these guys! No for real, it'd be awesome to have a working multiplayer editor also including item placement. It would also help other projects a lot!

I guess someone in some Discord was like "hey show your support for this thread pls" :P

In all seriousness, I hope these requests become a reality though. :thumbsup:
