The Infinity!

In the new track editor, will you be able to, atleast have a liiitle bigger area to work on? Or even better, will you be able to expand the level as much as you want? This way, i could create a huuuuuuge free-roam track! :D

I think there will be a limit to your build space, because not every computer can take such giant maps. You can see that in Trackmania Nations/United in the Stadium environment: put only Boost Plates (those with Turbo) in a level and some computers almost die.

And even with the launch of Sunrise and Nations, the work space never suspended. But you also can build in the air, so why is it needed?

Well, sometimes you make a nice speed track and you suddenly run out of room.
I think we should be able to but extra space, from 30x30x30 to 31x31x31.
Then make the really max space 60x60x60.
Also people can't edit levels that have a bigger space than they are allowed.

Good idea? :D

True, but eventually people will complain about that the map is still not big enough or that they were hold back because they don't have the possibility to edit the levels anymore, because they hit the maximum size.

And actually, you can roam free outside your building space in almost every TM map except Stadium
(there you will drop off the stage after 2 minutes. In the other maps, it takes almost 15 minutes to drop off the stage)

You can use TMUnlimiter to make bigger maps on tmf, though you also need it to play those tracks so you can't just dump them into any server... ;P

Really? Gonan check that out. I think i've seen several RPG maps that have increased in size. A lot actually. At least in height. :lol:

it is a difficult question, when it comes to building zone size

the bigger it is, the less the performance, the less quality of lights and the less the scenery can be close all around

so, we try to make it as small as possible, without feeling frustated by lacking building space. It mainly depends on the speed of the car, the size of the blocks and the type of gameplay.

I hope different sizes will be possible, though.
if the standard size is 16x16x16, other sizes like 4x16x64, 4x8x128 or whatever would be nice ;)
