@seruijo the only info that has been made public is that Elite and Royal* is able to play for free. That doesn't say that it doesn't have a freezone system like TMN

I read this in the custom objects thread:

We'll add support for binary alpha (ie only white or black pixels in alpha channel)
There won't traslucent alpha, since it's only partially supported, and generates artifacts.
Any idea when the binary alpha is coming?

When more enviroments are released (like Valley) will servers be able to play both enviros on the one matchfile like in united ?

are titles for one enviro only, or can titles in the future be on more than one enviro, like elite storm + cryo ?

Since every environment will now be sold as separate title, it will be more difficult to have servers with maps changing between the environments (titles).
Please also consider that the environments are much heavier (by means of data for textures and original objects), so loading times might explode, in worst case for every map.
The other point is that players which don't have all titles used by a server would be excluded.
They would have to skip those maps. But then? Have a waiting screen until again a map is chosen wich maches their title?

A title pack is afaik only meant for a dedicated original title, e.g. Canyon, Storm or Valley.

I was wondering the same as Mikey.
And as you can see TM2 as a succession of TMU more than a succession of TMN, I can't wait for playing valley and canyon on one server. If this should not work, I can't even imagine how ET should be able to provide their league system were multiple environments of one game are to be played.

I actually asked this question on page 3 of this topic. Hylis answered:

The same question came into my mind when i was in TS and speaking with my team.

The diffrent title system within the one big Maniaplanet is a nice idea for the start. But with more titles and environments you have to change it a liitle bit. Why not making a title Trackmania, Shootmania, Questmania. Within every game all diffrent titles can be displayed. This would also allow diffrent Profiles for every single game as you have a TM profile, a SM proflie and so on.
In the Trackmania title you can have for example Canyon, Valley, Platform. If you want to play online and own Canyon and Valley all Servers will be displayed. If you only have one of the environments only servers with the envi you own will be displayed.
