About Punaball: How about making own goals displayed? If someone shoots an own goal then it displays the wrong goalgetter.

One comment about seeing cars below bridges. I have thought about this and believe it or not, there is no easy technical solution for this and since I have never found this to be such a big problem, I have not considered it worth the effort. Well, at least Newton stopped playing TS because of that....

In fact many track designers make a lot of tiles/tracks using photoshop or corel draw. Maybe I wouldn't complain so much if they somehow try to learn how to make tiles smaller in size with having about the same quality. But most tiles are with 16 million colors and another thing is that I even don'...

If we want to improve the level of our tracks size has to go up. What needs to be improved there? TS is a simple top down view 2d game, no need to make it bigger, larger, etc. The fun comes from the game itself and not from the graphics. Also those who made such big tracks often didn't optimize any...

And some snow and ice tiles. I just raced on the fun tracks server and noticed that TS again downloaded 768 KB and 7 files just for having ice tiles. This would not be necessary especially as the old version already had ice tiles and the new one somehow has them too.

When talking about improvements, how about the visability of your own car and obstacles below bridges? And the less-sticky-crashes?

Why not? The graphics - even if they were much simpler in the old version - still were able to have enough players. I don't think that had as much to do with the looks of the game as that it was free. That's right but on the other hand it shows that these players weren't missing much. Only thing th...

We can't just stick to tracks with low file size but very poor/plain on graphics. Why not? The graphics - even if they were much simpler in the old version - still were able to have enough players. No need to change anything there, only some more wall parts etc. maybe. Regarding 3D inside cockpit v...

Re: Fund -Donation Project

The coming 1.08 provides some more features like xbowl -support, damage and missiles (at least i saw them working in beta-server). Nice but not necersary. This is going into the wrong direction. Before any new features are added it would be more important to a) getting more players b) improve exist...

I have a feature request: In the log file, include each car's Starting Position.

It is really good that you now have picture recognision when you post here. But why do you have it when a user edit his/her message. You already had to go through it once so the probability for that beeing missused is infinitesimal small. It is there, yes. But if you are logged in you can also post...

2) my concept (kind like at this page): if you upload a record Mike, I really think you focus too much on the record. Compared to the total anmount of players there are maybe 10 players who are good enough or drive often enough or are interested at all to compete with your records. I doubt that a s...

Ok. I'm not sure if channging the site and the forum will help that much, but maybe you'd take a look at http://www.s3dconnector.net - this is the best website for a game I saw. You have all player names with personal data and statistics, have friends you can add to a list and see if they are online...

Today we raced the best race i ever played on TS Now if this is the spirit of the game now maybe it's the right time for me to quit and stop moaning here. When I want to drive 20 laps to have my fist contact with an other car then I'd go for something like a real formula one simulation maybe. But I...

Hmm, maybe an official server should only have the default tracks even? But that would be a bit too static, making it boring IMO. No I think it should have a good mixture. Some serious default tracks, ~10% fun tracks (like Jail etc.), 20% tracks as small as Minileap, 80% of the tracks not bitter th...

Good ideas but as we all saw with the 0.86b and 1.00 in the PTX-servers the track upload/download stuff from all users doesn't really work. The tracks for the servers needs to be checked before they are accepted and with harsh hand like it is now done with the PTX-servers. And voting for about 400 ...

Totally agree to dby. For example I like playing Sea3d a board game. But it has a very good site with a lot of statistics and also a friends list you can put there so that you see on the website if the friends are online and if they currently are in a server. I think this would help a little bit alt...

It's fine that someone cares now. :) I think the look is not so important and I still think the demo mode needs to be changes somehow. I'd take a look on Soldat, they have always full server but I don't know if they many licences with that system. Ok, I already told you that 100 times. ;) Maybe an 1...

Oh and... I mean like a said the game is perfect as it is now the only thing they should care about now are the players in the servers.

I wanted to try out the new features but all regular servers were empty as usual, the demo servers didn't have that fuel function and only 3 tracks. That sucks. :?
