very good news did you fix the snow car bugs by changing the maps? i also observe it rarely on one of my valley maps with snow car.
Thx for the explanation It means it won't fix my troubles when using the snow car in plain canyon or valley.Florenzius wrote: ↑24 Jul 2019, 01:49After eyebo did some investigation on how the bug actually appears, we adapted all the blocks to avoid the issues. And it helped; we vanished like 99% of all bumping issues. More info on what we actually did and how it helped will be written in an upcoming blog post on unbitn.com
Thank you a lot for the great feedback.trew wrote: ↑30 Jul 2019, 15:22First of all, I want to congratulate everyone who worked on this project. I am amazed by the quality of this title pack. I played through most of the maps and I really enjoyed the variety and the challenge (these medals are HARD to get!)
I have a couple of suggestions/improvements/feedback to share. These are minor, but I feel they would give this title pack an extra layer of polish
Most of these suggestions fall under this: I wish the UI was based on MP4 instead of older versions. The new UI look and feel much better IMO. However, looking at your website, it seems like you have put a lot of effort in the custom UI, so I don't expect you to change it all based on the request of one random internet dude!
Here is a semi-prioritized breakdown of why I feel the new UI is better, so maybe some bits could be integrated in the current pack.
(I don't know the technical details, so I assume everything is possible!)
1. Show rankings on the first page
When I select a gamemode, the first thing I expect to see is the global rankings of my region, with easy switch to Country and World.
Personally, this global ranking is my main motivation to keep hunting after I got most medals.
The fact that it is the first thing that everybody sees increases the "value" of the ranking.
Also, the ability to click on players to see their top 10 best scores is nice.
It just feels weird to go back to 1/100 precision when official packs have 1/1000 precision
4. Change track category in 1 click
In official packs, and in TMUF, you don't have to go "back" to change track category (white, green, blue...). You can just change with one click, or one controller button (TM2).
I can't tell exactly why, but having a more "flat" access to all tracks feels more "friendly" and "unified".
5. Improved SkillPoint screen
Medals and SkillPoints are on the same page, spare one button press
On PB, show updated region/country/world ranking. This is satisfying and it ties in with point #1
Remove training vs official times now that all times are official.
6. Add group rank to tracks
In addition to World/Country/Region, add friend groups.
Finally, I think your pack deserves the "Environment" category in the ingame store. I'm sure Nadeo can make an exception for you.
The length of this post demonstrates that I am passionate about your pack. I can't wait for the next update/pack/new environment!
TL;DR, Alpine is awesome!, MP4 UI > Older UI
