E3 2011 Live Event

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly known as E3, is an annual trade show for the computer and video games industry presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). It is used by many video game developers to show off their upcoming games and game-related hardware.

So… At all in 3 days we will see the main announce of trackmania 2! And maybe ShootMania at all. But biggest hope is to see the full game in stores just after the E3. After 3 days we will be able to watch it on internet, but i`m not shure exactly how, so if i have any more news i`ll present them to you about the live streaming.

Well the NADEO idea for the publishing wallpapers whit game looks working, cause for a few days, the tm community gather all the pieces of the puzzle. They ware something about 250-300, and the forum where they ware find reach ~80 pages! This show how big is the interest about the new game. Well i thing is time to show it to you :)

Wallpaper 2 – CANYON

So what are we see here. That what many people saw before, when the puzzle was building. The bumper of the yellow car is hitted, and it is going to broke. So, there are collisions, but for our luck now whit cars, but whit the world around the car as hylis wrote

As you can see the car’s paint is scratched and the bumper is hanging down on the left side.So, no collisions between cars, but colliding with environmental elements seems to cause damage to the car..

there won`t be car to car collisions, cause this wont be anymore trackmania, but again the new boring racing game… So this was the secound wallpaper, and the third is now building.The secound is bigger than the first, and it looks like the thirds is going to be larger, or whit smaller pieces, which will make the building of it a lot harder to the community.  For now it looks it have about 600-700 pieces ! And in the main maniaplanet forum they reach 50 pages. You can send pieces too   at THIS link, and HERE is full list of the founded parts. I hope soon they will show us the proggres, until then we can wait :)


WALLPAPER 3!!! – the new one, assembled in 36 hours! I have noting to write about it because it have not nothing new on it, that we did not saw in the previous one … Only new i can give you is the manialink i found : PuzzleMania.

Ok here is just some news about the release of the trackmania2:

The dates I am giving were always sincere. The Q4 2010 for the beta was a real one, but after some months, I wanted to make the gameplay model even more solid, the graphics even better and to make some blocks for both of it based on this thougts. Meanwhile, we were improving the ManiaScript speed and stability since it is difficult to make too many evolution on a scripting language once code is started to be wrote on it. I have spent some ‘weeks’ in meeting and setting up the publishing internally. This is also how we are able to launch this normally this month (Note: today is April 8 2011) , with upcoming printed press articles combined with community priority reveal ;)

The weeks after E3 (Note: E3 Expo = June 7-9, 2011) is serious, but if we have some new discovery on ShootMania, we may prefer to wait a little to overcome the new challenges, instead of launching maniaplanet and do that at the same time. I feel we are on a great path at the moment, but if there is a new great ideas that has to be done before the first release in order to make it possible, I would have to make a choice. It is far from simply releasing a game, it is releasing an operating system that should enables players to create in it, but also support evolution from us. Also, making an online system that handles the maniaplanet system, instead of three separate games, is a development we had to make before the beta of TM².

Anyway, I hope you will appreciate the quality of the work as soon as possible!

Until mid-june, we reveal the game
after, we start talking about the beta

Environment News!

The idea is to release around three titles per year, one for each game. I would like to see one TM², one SM and one QM environment each year. Now, this is more like the general idea. We may do less if there is too much work on each, or may be more if we have a better production capacity (it is really not linked to the number of people only, but the quality and ability to be more while keeping deepness) so, this year, we want to release two title: one TM² and one SM, and ideally, we would like to release three titles next year. But now that we are well advanced on the first TM², we have to work a lot on the first SM.

This was writen in the Trackmania 2 forum. As you see it`s true that we will have one new environment each year  for all 3 games. But as i understand in the other comments in the forum, we may have to pay each year for different env.

Here what Hylis exactly said:

The price of each title will be independent. You can see this as smaller game release more often. The goal is to make a continuous release. If we release three environment in the year, at 19€90 each for example, then it would make you pay 59€70 each year for the three different environments and getting at the same time the online and engine evolution. And if you prefer only TM² and QM, for example, you can take only two and it will cost you less.

19 EUR each! That make as he say about 60 EUR per year, to stay on whit the new updates in the game. I`m not shure that they will make the progress as this the old trackmania. And i specialy hope that they will make copy to the stadium in TM2.

Well for now we have one wallpaper of the new environment : Canyon. Here you can find it : WALLPAPER .If you take a closer look, you will see in the front of the car the UBISOFT  company. Yea, it was written before that ubisoft buy nadeo or something like that but it wasnt shure. Now it looks real, wicth means only good thinks :)

It was created in the NADEO game whit the puzzels. I`m not shure what was their idea whit this, but it actualy look very nice! The colors, the HD car model and the HDRI are just awsome! Also NADEO change the text “COMMING SOON” in the maniaplanet whit the more nice looking – “COMMING SOON – VERY SOON!”, which in best case means in the close a few weeks! Well it stays only to hope to come early. The next question we may ask is What will happen whit TMNF?! I let you to answer this here. Bye until next news!
