Many fixes of reported bugs on many blocs (cracks, symmetry, tiling problems, materials, lods). mostly valley/lagoon
-Waypoint properties of racing blocs have been fixed in Lagoon and Valley, maybe this is linked to the not respawnable finishes, I'm not sure
-missing roof in a parking bloc of valley
-unexpected barriers on lagoon cityfloor that broke solo maps are fixed.
-some optimisations on lagoon buildings and cityfloors
-Canyon arena's CP and multilap now look different
-Valley Road2way Trubo and freewheeling ground have now a design/functionality closer to the air version.(turbos were longer than their signage)
-Stadium's sculpt materials have been restored (RPG bloc broke).
-Valley Technics Screen mirror bugs on ground variations.
-Valley Road2Way on Terrain 1-5-9 now has its clip back
-Lagoon beach CP triggers are now as large as expected

Warning :
some platform blocs have been added to storm, but bugs (holes) too.
we discovered after the update was done : I suggest you don't use these new bugged ones until they are fixed, or expect to regenerate/fix your maps when they'll be.
sorry for the inconvenience ;,(

Warning 2 :
Changes have most of the time small impact on lightmaps, but hey can still create lightmap artifacts, a recompute is advised, but the maps concerned are not a lot.
note : The computing of lightmaps on ULTRA with /only_embeded is now faster because done at a lower resolution.

New scoring system in chase? Any information about that before I try it?
It only affects the players ranking, not the general winning conditions.
For each checkpoint crossed the players receive a score based on the time and speed difference with the first player of their team. Their score at the checkpoint is then compared and the player with the highest score get (Number of players in the team - rank of the checkpoint score - 1) points.
Eg with 3 players: 1st player always scores 0 points, 2nd player scores 3227 points and 3rd player scores 4576 points. 1st player is ranked 3rd, 2nd player is ranked 2nd and 3rd player is ranked 1st. 1st and 2nd players get 0 point for this checkpoint and 3rd player gets 1 point.

There is also a grade and combo system linked to the checkpoint score that let us refine the players performances analysis.

This update broke so much... Its nice to see that things are being fixed, but why break even more with it? Stadium tracks are bugged.. Nadeo tracks are missing parts now. The handeling of the car is changed to the handling of the stadium cars in Turbo... If I want to race with a Turbo car, Ill play Turbo.. I dont want to, but now Im forced to play with an entirely different game so it seems.. Its not maniaplanet anymore. Its Turbo in Maniaplanet.

I loved Stadium in Trackmania² but now I hate it. Why change a game that wasnt broken?

Canyon lighting is also weird.. Even on the newly updated tracks from TM MX.. I loved the game, but now Im not so sure anymore..


Also.. watch out if you start a server... We lost 40k planets (to set up one), because sending the planets through mail to the server didnt work properly.

your main rank system is down and nobody gives a fuck. I came back from Turbo looking for old good gameplay and you're ruining it...

Ensure the server you're playing on is using the newest dedicated server:
viewtopic.php?p=286328#p286328

Usually you can type /version or something to see the server version when playing.
