Question to all TM2 players--what's wrong with Canyon?

Post by Trackmaniack » 26 Aug 2011, 15:43

What is it you don't like about Canyon? I'm going to try and consolidate a thread here, both for my own reading purposes and so that Nadeo doesn't have to run all over the forum trying to put out proverbial fires, here. Because I don't get it. Other than the potential shortage of blocks, which has aready been said that it's going to be addressed, I don't understand what's not to like about Canyon. People say it's "not innovative." Well, what exactly were you expecting? For the TM-Franchise to suddenly morph into Burnout? They have a formula, and that formula has netted them 9 million copies of a game--I'd say the formula works pretty well. So, answer the titular question, please, and I thank you.

Well, atm, I'm annoyed at the start-boost, the loop and still no xinput support

Ha, that's funny. I just posted this: http://themaniablog.com/2011/08/26/full ... mentality/

I think that pretty much sums up the reason, IMHO, there is some backlash.

Hmmm!
At first I disliked Canyon because of the car's handling but apparently I got used to it now lol.

Let' see....
I'll make a list!
  • Ridiculous time of shadow calculating
  • Ridiculous time needed for rendering videos
  • Bad handling during loopings
  • Difficulty of really getting used to the editor
  • The fact that I have to get used to working without airbrake
L-let's make a list of what I like then and more things I guess

Because people want a gameplay like stadium in canyon, these people don't know that's a BRAND NEW ENVI! I just loved the new handling that I saw in the videos and I cant wait to drive it by myself :pil

Auto-brake. That's all.
Anything else I dislike is directly linked with either my inability to drive well or the result of a badly designed track (which would be the case in any environment), and thus not the fault of the environment itself.

QFT. :) This is where I think 99.9% of the complaints of Canyon come from. I know I'm a sucky driver, so I'm less likely to criticize Canyon itself for being bad, when it's likely that I just am terrible. Or the mapmaker is, with insane-o transitions or something.
