  1. I remember an old game, interstate 82 or 86 i think, that featured vehicles with weapons, it was fun over LAN but never really took off. Carmageddon 2 was much more fun with the more 'zany' weapons liek the spring that flung the nearest racer away and into the wall, over the cliff or whatever
  2. Aren't the trailers vehicles themselves? I'm fairly certain a Team or QA member posted about driving an unattached trailer in testing. (also, if you damage one in single player it will eventually catch fire then explode, just like any other vehicle). If this is the case then I can understand it being difficult to include.

    spawning problem

    Try pressing 'fire' instead of the enter key.
  4. Any good race makes you test your skills so It isn't really a new genre.

  6. If it is 1 v 1 then surely you dont need different painted monster trucks. I presume you both know who you are already...

  8. Isn't it a bit odd to have a different tag in your name to your gangs one? (RPX)Bomb says, 'Join {BPK} Today!'

  10. I'd like to suggest that admin+ is re-introduced - or something similar that sends some ingame details, I was amazed that it was missing after some posts from team member Oli regarding the work he had done on the admin side of things. Also would it be possible for the scoreboard to sort players according to Final Race Position? A relatively minor detail I know but when playing with 16 or more players its not possible at a glance to see everyones final positions, especially in those times when there are only 5 seconds until the next race starting. Some kind of scoring would be great too, and is sorely missed at the moment. Storing lap records or awarding points for a win/2nd/3rd place perhaps? Of course if the admin is extended then external scripts could take over responsibility for keeping records. Finally, most importants and probably most easily too!: Can you make the vote timer global? So rather than a particular player only being able to vote for a map every # seconds, EVERY player has to wait for # minutes after a vote. This would solve the only truly major irritation of constant (and I do mean CONSTANT) vote calling on any server with 16 or more players, and yet leave the vote as a useful tool if needed. [32 players, one vote per minute, thats one vote every 2 seconds on average with a server full of votewhores - it happens and it ruins the mod totally!] Edit: The amount of really poor maps circulating is also damaging to MTA, but I'm not too sure how you can prevent that.

  12. I don't see this as being too much of a problem, if its a race then they will lose, if its freeroam then they have the right to do just that, if its a DM mode and an eternal runner you take the win and vote the next map. If its a guy flying into a tunnel, that is actually quite skillful and pretty challenging to get at him, and a challenge usually = fun

  14. Might be a fun area for the RC 'planes or the go-kart, although I detest the Go-kart, if it is too small for a road race. Will make a very nice little DM map when that is released I expect
