Maniaplanet Update #4 - wishlist

Post by Hylis » 17 Jul 2014, 10:04

I believe your first wish was to have more players and we have done the demo for it.

Maniaplanet is having one of it's best audience ever at the moment, but it's also up to you and the community to invite and welcome new players on the demo. I still believe it's a clear and great way to discover a game if the format is right and Maniaplanet demos can be in tops like on Steam or if we repeat players to just test the game and make their opinion by themselves, now that the game has improved much, thanks to players for the wishes and the team for the changes (thanks Xymph)

But if time and audience was our biggest difficulties, it's now our best allies. More people can invite more people while we work while we can work on next big steps, designed to bring audience in a big way as well, for Shootmania with Power Up! and Trackmania with other things. And for these next big steps, you are really welcome to express your wishes, as always: clear & simple, no debate, link to report when possible.

Meanwhile, instead of waiting for next update, I suggest to enjoy as best as possible the current version thanks to the already done features and custom abilities, like new maps, items, modes, titles etc.

- Possibility to not only modify our mood settings by xml, but having its own creating tool could be comfortable enough.

- Better interface menu as debated here

- Bring back those awesome logo designs! :geek:

- Weather settings, will the gameplay get affected or not...?

- TMF environnment port in maniaplanet.

- And some wishes that I'll reply back on later.

1.) -removed-
2.) Don't change the ML-Styles, Add new ones
3.) Add an Action to update the server like /updateserver or something like that. (this function should check the versions from the server and if there is a new one, this will be downloaded in right folder and the server restart itself)^^
4.) Puzzle Mode (TrackMania)
5.) Improve the buddylist (I have 177 Friends on my playerpage, but "only" 100+ in Maniaplanet)
5b) Add a function like "last online" in the buddysystem (This would help me to remove inactive players on my buddylist)^^
6.) Puzzle Mode (Shootmania)

Thx for the Universal Demo, I saw a lot of new players in Shootmania on BattleServers, it seems Maniaplanet is growing up now :D :thumbsup:

- Weather settings
-Ability to change fov
- remove melee lobby from matchmaking and make something normal like for example party system in station overlay, than press search and game tries to find a match
- maniascript: ability to give more stamina than normal
- mini admin for dedicated servers, If I host server in-game than I don't need votes to change something. It would be great to see new setting in configuration (admin mp login), this player will have ability to change script settings, kick, ban etc. Without vote requests
- VoIP support in sm

I hope that the development will not take very long, why doesn't refer to this version: etc. MP3.2... 3.3....... if update is bigger it can be skipped to 3.5....... :)

My wishlist:

1. More blocks for TM (first priority Canyon, Valley after with Stadium).
2. Full AA on Nice and Very nice settings.
3. Valley and Stadium Platform official title packs.
4. Improve Maniaplanet UI, primary on stations and serverbrowser. I also want uniform menu for titles that have the old versions (MP 2.0 or 2.1), no remains of the old design.
5. Envmix on Stadium envi.

My wishlist in order of priority ( ShootMania )

0. ESWC 2014

1. Tutorials
--> I can not stress enough how hard this game is. I've been helping demo players. They don't even know how to sprint. They never ever walljump. They dont know the colored blocks ( blue, red , white )... On top of that their skill is lower so they get bashed so haaaaaaaard. In other games you can run away. Here you cant, because you are slow. You get killed instantly. ( Elite )

2. Improved Ladder
--> A ladder that represents true skill. Also maybe expand echelons to 12? Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond. ( = super sexy )
--> No double rankings ( 5x #1 of the world... )
--> When you lose a match but you had 4 attacks & 25 rockets ... maybe dont lose LP? Rethink win/loss of LP so that it feels fair.

3. Focus on improving excisting official modes & perfect them
--> Elite has still bugs & gameplay can still be improved. It's a good mode, but it needs something extra.
--> Joust had 128 players in weekly Zotac cups. It's awesome. It needs a relaunch.
--> Combo, arguably the bést mode of ShootMania. Relaunch it!
--> With the most awesome weapon in history ( the laser ) maybe create an official instagib mode, with stats focussing on accuracy.

I hope this is also a part of the "Power Up!- Plan" ??

4. Statistics/Achievements in a beautiful designed page with maybe graphs
--> How good am I? Am I getting better? How good am I compared to my friends? How good am I compared to the best player?
A beautiful ranking-page per title is welcome too.
--> Am I the best of my city/country? Whats my rank in the world?

It's fun to know this stuff and it motivates you to continue playing.

5. Find a use for ManiaPlanets.
--> Donating to servers is necessary, but boring.
--> Find something cool to spend them on in a central place ( a store )
Skins of the week, Horn of the week, Pose of the week - divided in categories: Recent/Most Downloaded/Top

6. All settings in 1 place to improve user-friendlyness
f.e. Why are 'trails color' & 'pitch of beacon' currently in a seperate menu?

7. Invite friends to play with a notification "Hey I'm playing. Click here or F13 to join me."

8. Bring clublinks in-game or pimp the website
Clublinks & personalisation is awesome. But it can be a hassle. If it'd be ingame it would be used waaaay more.
I love clublinks & it gives that extra touch of coolness to the game.
How do non-forum readers know about clublinks? They simply don't. :oops:

9. Frequent updates, teasers & communication.
--> Waiting a year for an update wasn't cool. I prefere monthly smaller updates.

10. Focus on more the modern part and not so much the castle/old part. I like to see it more as a modern shooter.
Integrating the neon into walls would be cool.
I'm not a fan of the current design, but its a big big step forward :thumbsup: My wish is that the current interface can be perfected. No more parts of TM in SM. No more 3D-styles of MP2 mixed with recycled stuff of MP1. 1 style to rule them all please.
Also SM has 2 logos? It's a bit confusing.
