I don't think this is a significant problem [...] My server (Terra#2) have a lot of more than 1mb tracks [...] Longer tracks requires a more technique driving, thats impossible to do with 2 players in the same keyboard, witch means playing with just one hand. I think it is a problem because even th...

Please reduce the PNG to 256 colors. That would make the tile files smaller. If you use a good graphig program (and Microsoft Photo Editor ist not one of them) it should be able to do so without seeing any difference.

Re: Bumping - YES or NO

Yes... the highly scientific poll. :P Indeed. As I already mentioned I doubt that opinions in this forum represent the meanings of the ones who are in the servers. Actually it's slightly leaning towards it being too easy to bump. Hmm... I see 10 votes for "bumping other cars is fine (as it is)" and...

PS: i want remember you this is TS 1.06!! Regarding that fact, another improvement of 1.x was the random fixed car . This is complete worthless now since the tracks gut bigger and bigger. A race can get really boring if it takes long and you have to make it with a bad car. So smaller tracks maybe w...

Now since the tracks got bigger the slider is more competitive again. And the Easyslider? I never understood why it was pushed that ...

Those who moan about ghost racing are not able to compete without resorting to low-class tactics? With a little practise it's not really that difficult to tell the cars apart. I mean it's both fun but usually I prefer joining here and there during the day and see if the road is crowded enough for h...

I think those who bumps other drivers cant compete any other way. They only choice is to block or push opponent. That is stupid if you start in front row and go first in the first tight curve and then someone just drive full speed over you and your race is gone then. No, thats funny. Even if it hit...

Arena game support

Not only wanting to moan about things, I thought that it might be a good Idea to add Arena support. That's a course where you are starting inside sorrounded by ramps. Your goals is to push all other players to the outside and remain inside at last. I only one time saw that someone made a server for ...

I reckon it's a good thing that you get stuck into walls. When I see a car a head of me hitting a wall I can evade him, but if he'd bounce from the wall I'd pretty surely hit him. But players usually also get stucked to curves easier (because there is now a rock or tree instead of a round object, a...

I somehow have the feeling that regular forum users here and also the guys who make the most tracks - let's say the part of the players who are also active outside the game - dislike bumping other cars and want to have more professional races while players who join here and there and only are seen i...

less sticky wall parts

I think there should be either new standard-wall parts the next version or a better object recognization. Don't you think many of the wall parts in make your car easily get stucket into? Maybe you remember you remember all the purble, light blue and grey wall parts of the older Turbosliders version....

It's too bad the community is still so small, otherwise small-track and modem servers would be a good idea. That's true... If the community would be bigger we didn't need to discuss anymore which tracks we want to have on these 2 servers. However, I think there would be no need for a modem server i...

You can use gif-or jpg-images as well. They will reduce imagesize and still their quality will remain good enough for little game like this. Yes JPG works as well. Depending how you made your tiles but usually PNG or GIF should work well. PNG has a slightly better compression but it also supports 1...

And by the way it is not necersary to make tracks that big . I made a standard ice map once, if everyone used that instead of his own ice map then so many PNG files wouldn't be needed. But if everyone uses the same PNG files and uses another name for the same file than it need's to be loaded for eac...

Tracks are getting too big! Kilobytes AND Size

Racing last time I noticed that tracks are getting to big. It is horrible that you have to load about a Megabyte for some tracks. I think there should be a maximum of 200KB, otherwise players per modem will be excluded or are not able to start because their download still runs while the race starts....
