Well anyway all must be balanced, if the price of "Planet" are balanced well, all is fine. :geek:

No, you can purchase TM-Valley, or TM-Cryo independently.
Maniaplanet will be in both boxes, so you can buy other games later and add them to your game list.
It's not add-ons, it's stand alones that can be gathered.
For the first maniaks, it will look like add-ons because of release schedules. But 3 years later, someone that doesn't know at all TM SM or QM may receive QM-environment2 for christmas, and then hear about the other games played on that planet, and add TM-Canyon or QM-Environment1 as if it's his second game.
Just like you buy games for your gaming platform!

Ooh...I got a nadeo reply... :mrgreen: never had that before.

Heh, okay. So now I'm really confused. Are you saying that TM2 SM and QM are all going to be interlinkable? Heh, like you could have airstrikes from SM messing up the TM2 racers or a dragon eating a racer?

Interesting, I'm going to need some more shelves for these boxes I think!

Now where did I put my wallet?

No, until recently (envimix) you couldn't play island with the coast car. Every environment was standalone, but all gathered in Trackmania United, and launched from the same interface.

Now, move back something like 2 or 3 hundreds kilometers, and you can see the planet, and the other continents to discover.
You're allowed to visit any of them, but it's forbiden to use the egyptian pyramids in Pekin.

Hey I was first with that :D

It seems like the idea of ManiaPlanet is pretty original and new at least, since many people don't seem to fully understand it yet :mrgreen:

I second to that. I liked your way to present maniaplanet. Our new adventure is about TM²+SM+QM. The M is in common, but not the gameplays.
