*New* CD-Action ( Polish Magazine):
Summary by me and translation by elitechris, thanks to him
-planets is the new currency and not coppers ( yes many magazines wrote it will be coppers, but its planets)
-in the Maniaplanet main menu the conversions of the titles will be placed
-at the moment its not 100% sure how you get planets, but its sure that everyone will receive the same amount in the same timeframe. also you can get planets by selling your own maps, winning tournaments organised by users and Lottomania. all this things can be made by players and limited in their own way.
-planets can be used to make advertisements in the main menu, which will be presenting your own accesories.
- gameplay isnt too much different from previous editions-> tracks are loading fast in several seconds, so all of this is to create perfect trails to drive and beating your own scores by losing not much time.
- there will be no puzzle mode, in canyon only race mode will be available, but the writer is sure that many gamers wont like that.
-splitscreen mode will be available
- in demo only time attack is available later on some more
-the standart camera nearer than in tmuf
-beta is coming end of June or begin of Juli

Looki:tcq wrote: This functions as a internet browser. You can enter tags over a taskbar in the upper part of the screen to be connected to subdomains of other gamers, where you can test their maps or watch videos of their tracks. For this, the game directs you to the internet explorer if you call a scene web site like TM-tube, where trackmania videos can be uploaded to. Creation of fillip should be done through the sharing system. Through earned coppers, the game currency, you can add ad's on other servers to make your tracks more known.
Furthermore, there will be news about SM and QM on the gamescom in cologne (17.08 to 21.08.2011)
Nadeo intends to give more information to both games at the gamescom in cologne.
And they said that there will be the possibility to connect, somehow the different games through campaigns.
Of interest will be the maniaplanet syste, when it comes to the section of self made campaigns. If you create a set of tracks, you can create a package for other players. Thereby, tracks can be randomly conglomerated and contain missions with different aims for SM, QM and TM2. There should also be online competitions.
Nadeo said that this is for sure:Looki wrote:So viel sei laut Nadeo bereits sicher: Alle drei Spiele lassen sich untereinander kombinieren, sprich für 'Trackmania 2: Canyon' erstellte Strecken können alternativ und mit geringfügigen Umbaumaßnahmen auch für 'Shootmania' und 'Questmania' verwendet werden. Sogar das Erstellen zusammenhängender Missionen mit eigens eingestellten Zielen ist möglich. So könnt ihr zum Beispiel eine Kampagne mit Levels aus den drei Spielen zusammenstellen und bestimmte Vorgaben, wie Zeitrennen oder Stuntrennen, festlegen. Wie das in der Praxis funktioniert, soll spätestens auf der gamescom im August gezeigt werden.
All the games can be combined together with each other, so you can create a track for Trackmania 2 Canyon and you can use it( with some changes) into Shootmania and Questmania. Even the creation from combined missions with your own settings is possible. For example you can make a campaign with levels of all three games and specific options like Time Attack or Stuntraces. How this is working will be presented at least at the gamescom in August
