I just hope that I can play this beauty of a game on my Xbox One X
Please Nadeo... Even if you remove some features like custom skins in the console version...
Make it available for Xbox One please.
I want to play this instead of TMT.

While we're there, may I suggest an idea for the map editor I had for a pretty long time ?

The "block morphing" tool :
Instead of having a very long list of blocks variants in the editor, you can now make your own pretty easily (way much more accessible than TM2 block editor) and bug free !

How it would work :
1 - you open it and it shows a 5x5 grid
2 - you select a type of main road you want to use. For example, with this new stadium, we have seen main road, main road dirt and bulging road.
3 - you place the block entrances on the grid, also select their heights, which can be different.
4 - you select the kind of slope you want : if you want the junctions to be flat or not.
5 - same for the lateral inclination of the road.
6 - press ok and save your custom block. All the textures should be applied correctly.

Of course there could be some limitations, like for example if the optimal trajectory goes out of the grid...

Please bring back splitscreen for local play, as Hotseat gets very boring if the level of the players is too much different.
Also make a splitscreen mode that runs on two connected monitors.

That would be cool. I kinda wish making roads in Trackmania worked the same as making roads Cities Skylines - which basically gives you complete freedom!

I would like to ask, if it is possible to join a Beta, if that sort of thing is planned. I'm sure only a few selected people will have access, but now that i recently took responsibility over a widely used program for TrackMania-/ShootMania-Servers, it would be helpful to get to know the scenes behind the new game.

I imagine that you probably need to apply here for access to the forum : viewtopic.php?f=526&t=46630

Same thought as you, I doubt I will have time to help much with the beta but if we can prepare the tools before the official release that would be good.

tbh i'm quite sad it's like you gave up on maniaplanet, why not make maniaplanet into a freemium model reintroduce advertising and restrictions for free players and do a big redesign and simplefy the menus to nowadays design standards because be real we aren't in the vista era anymore.

I'm afraid this release will splinter the community even more.

Yet again, this is a conclusion based on nothing factual. Nadeo hasn't said much yet about the future of Maniaplanet. But I have high hopes, if you remember what happened when Turbo got released.
