    Now that PLR is an official game type, I thought I'd try my hand at it... with a "port" of Mute City I from the classic F-Zero

    Screens attached show what I have now: skeleton of the track and placeholder brushwork for the BLU Falcon and RED Stingray, until I can get or create 3D models of them. Of course there's going to be obstacles and shit around the track so it's not just a totally flat open plane, it's just the payload track that's going to be flat.

    Don't worry, I'm doing my best to try and make this not wind up like Wacky Races. The idea I have right now is, unlike wacky races, which relies on attacking the other vehicle, is to use the traditional PL system (Which, also unlike wacky races' setup, works) . Get on top of the F-Zero machine or into the cockpit to get it moving. Getting into the cockpit provides the dispenser health/ammo. Also unlike wacky races, the "driver", if you will, is always exposed to danger.

    Now, if only there were a quick way to learn how to model....

    :O I love it. I'm new to modeling; I think that a good beginning project would be some F-Zero machines if you'd like me to try to make a couple. No guarantees on the quality though. :p

    Anyway, I love the concept. :D

    For alphas you can just make a simple blocky model of it and rip machine textures from N64 F-Zero X :thumbup1:

    At first I was kind of unsure wether or not to include a BGM, but if everyone wants one, I suppose I could use [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OUkexdBXP8]this[/ame]

    i would love to hear the old n64 one but i suppose that works too. lol could also just take differnt variations of the song from differnt versions and stuff and just make it into a big song file or something that way its not ALWAYS repetitive while playing

    Indeed. The classics are more defining.

    I'd prefer if it was the original, but it would be come kinda repitive, so why not have a like cycle between these:

    This sounds like

    A) Actually trying to make the concept behind Wacky Races fun and playable
    B) A great idea for a map

    I hope you can pull this off, this looks awesome.
