Also please could you add [url] links to the 1st post for your earlier drafts - this is helpful as people can see the changes that have been ,made, and can help to avoid circular changes/arguments.


Ok, I'll do that from now on. Sorry, but I am still quite new at this.

No problem ;-) - I wasn't criticising at all - just trying to make it easier to follow the devlopment of what I think has some really good potential.

I think this map should either be a realistic race, or a cheesy one. The difference between Gran Turismo, and Mario Kart, ya know? If there is going to be power-ups, and fallen trees and such, then I'd go cheesy. Mixing the two just doesn't feel right.

I am aiming for more of the Mario Kart style. So I want it too be cartooney. One idea I have is to make it a GIF and have the power-ups 'bounce' up and down on a map, or 'twist' around like they do on many games.

I think this map would work better as a Gran Turismo style map. If you can do highly realistic graphics, this map will look amazing. Definitely don't make distracting animations for the map.

I think with the power-ups and other additions a realistic map wouldn't suit. Also, I'm just not capable of making a highly realistic map.

I wouldn't mind seeing either version. A Gran-Tourismo style would make the map more approachable,.......But since you lean to the cheesy side...

You should cheese-up the power-ups more. And the cars too, maybe one could be a monster truck, another a hearse, the next a buggy, whatever. Or go even more unique, like as in monopoly, or zoo race. Perhaps you could even create your own Mario-esc charactors. All in all, it just needs to be more cartoony. Think more Bugs Bunny, less Rally-X.

Is this out of the window now? :( I think it has great potential.

Would anyone like to take this idea? I've kind of lost motivation on it and I don't think I have the graphical skills to create a good map. I think it'd be a fun map to play, but I just think it would need some great graphics to go with it.
