W temacie: 18 simple, yet impactful changes

Odpowiedzi: 5

04-12-2022, 12:43

Hello!

While we all want new cars, tuning parts, or activities, let's be realistic: such updates are pretty hard to make. What I prepared today is a list of relatively small and simple to implement changes, quality of life improvements, and bug fixes, which, however, will have a huge impact on the gameplay nonetheless. Adding some of these suggestions to every upcoming big update will be great!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #1

Solve the "Your magazine gallery is full" situation.

I shouldn't really explain this one. Most of you know well how frustrating it is to get this message, especially when you drive a slow vehicle. You have to go back to the garage, delete covers, and then travel all the way back. This process is painful. 

I offer two reasonable solutions; both are relatively easy to implement!

1. After you make a cover photo you will have a simple option just not to save it. I prefer this one.

2. Alternatively, when attempting to start the magazine run with a full gallery, the game will offer to open the gallery menu directly from the freerun, so that you can get rid of some unnecessary covers. This might be easier one to integrate.

Suggestion #2
On entering the magazine run, warn the player if the chosen car has below 3 stars of visual rating, so he doesn't accidentally screw the vinyl run streak.

Suggestion #3
Add an ability to bind multiple buttons to one action in F11 -> Keybinds.

This is a very welcome addition, especially for gamepad users, as right now you cannot bind one action (e.g. reset car) to both devices.

Suggestion #4
Add the ability to browse bumpers with widebody kit being installed.

While browsing, the body kit gets disabled (hidden). If you attempt to purchase a bumper, the game should warn that this action will also remove the widebody.

[Image: hv9iWbl.png]

Suggestion #5
Notify the player whenever he unlocks new upgrades for his car.

Many will agree that this is a pretty useful feature that makes progress feel more natural and simply saves time. There are different ways to implement this, and the simplest ones are to reuse the existing systems. For example:
 
1. Use the on screen text notification system commonly used all around the server (diamond hunt results, successful challenge series completion, etc.) This is probably the easiest way, but I find it too disturbing.

[Image: zaR7ksO.png]

2. Alternatively, reuse the Daily Task / TaskPoint popup message. The way I'd prefer, personally.

[Image: bB78aD6.png]

3. One more option is to utilize the popup message that is currently used for standart/drift mode switch in freerun. I like this way as well.

Suggestion #6
Add search bar to the body & accessories shops (and dyno probably)

Are you tired of scrolling through a thousand items just to get the one you need? I am. The search bar can save you massive amounts of time if you just know the name of an item you need. A little, but very impactful change.

Suggestion #7
Allow to rotate the vehicle in body & accessories shops

Sometimes it's quite hard to see a tuning part due to poor lighting and/or dark color of the car. Just like the paint shop or garage, we should be able to rotate our car with LMB+RMB (or MMB)

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #8
In accessories shop, split neons, window tints, and lights colors into sub-categories

For example, window tints will be split into light, dark, pearlescent and unique sub-categories. It's a great time saver.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #9
Disable drift game mode from quick races

The reason why we should do that is obvious - it never works. Drift is the mode that requires specific cars, which people have a few or don't have at all. The chance of all players in the lobby randomly getting a competitive drift vehicle is close to 0%. That makes all races unfair and awkward. I genuinely think that quick races are way more fun than personal ones, but many players refuse to play them just because of the bad random drift experience they had.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #10
Permanently increase rewards for drift races

I'm not the biggest fan of this game mode, but drifts are up to 5 times worse at reward/time ratio than sprints or circuits, therefore they are unreasonable to play unless you do it for fun or 500,000 points daily.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #11
Add real time scores to drift races

Right now the counter updates only when a player finishes drifting, and before that stays completely static. Real time scores would give a clearer understanding of rivals performance. Drift races will feel much more alive and competitive. Earlier I thought that it's too hard to implement, but now we have live scores in speed drift challenges, and that gives me hope!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Suggestion #12
In the paint shop, allow to manually type in values out of the slider limit.

Have you experienced a situation like that: you want to put a sponsor to the rear bumper, but it doesn't go far enough, as the slider is already at the limit (300)? Well, to counter that we can allow to manually type negative numbers or numbers greater than 300. This, in some sense will be revolutionary. To avoid any possible abuse, we can limit numbers (for example, -5000 and 5000)

Suggestion #13
Add more decals, and maybe redraw old ones in HQ. Why not?

Suggestion #14
Fix broken sticker preview.

For a long time some categories of stickers are broken. It is a very unfortunate bug, especially for the shapes (as they don't have unique names to search for effectively, and it's one of the most used categories)

Suggestion #15
Remove this cop in San-Fierro

This suggestion might sound silly, but I have an objective reason. You see, this policeman blocks the most convenient ways to 3 shops at once: the paint shop, accessories shop and the car lot.

Suggestion #16
Fix not entering "hidden" (in cover) state when entering the cooldown mode while standing on the marker

[Image: LdozeVX.png]

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Suggestion #17
If cops spot you while you're hidden, the pursuit will continue anyway - fix that

In NFS: Most Wanted, the "hidden" state is a guarantee of a getaway, even if cops spot you. In NFS:SA, however, cops can get in almost every cover (especially on higher heats where they have more time to do that) and continue the pursuit, which makes covers unsafe. Making cops blind may not be realistic, but it will make intended covers much more useful.

Suggestion #18
The free camera mode

I know that this was suggested a million times and is not particularly easy to implement. However, I want to give a few arguments of my own to show that it isn't so impossible. 

I found a free open-source cam hack MTA script, which I will attach to this thread. It is very light and simple (really), and at the same time it has all the necessary functions like smooth camera movement, zoom and tilt. I don't encourage to use it as is, but it is a valuable example that may help to create our own, even better system.

if nobody cares about drags, all toptimes are already exploited, everyone who sets them is suspected of cheating, you can hide ranking table and make this game mode just4fun till its fix. Seems like the best decision

While everyone can set 40 fps, not everyone can access 60 fps. I think that the best decision is to delete these toptimes and reduce the punishment for at least twice.

It should be clearly understandable, no one is punishing him for having low pc, he used it as advantage it would be okay if he did it accidentally but he made those toptimes over and over all time.

You don't get me. I say that when there is a smaller group of people who dominate others, it's not the best decision to obliterate people who use what everyone can use. He did exploit, tops are intentional, but what else could you in such a bugged gamemode if with low fps you cannot do tops at anywhere else?

Temat: Shopping Cart (Tuning preview) (Rewritten)

Odpowiedzi: 25

06-05-2019, 15:30

Hello there. If you played NFS: Most Wanted, Carbon or Prostreet, you must remember the system that allows you to look on your car with all tuning you would like without paying any money. In game its called shopping cart. Personally, i'd call it tuning preview. NFS: Underground 1/2 doesnt contain this system and that's sad, because external tuning in those games is one of the main features. And what about NFS:SA? It also contains a lot of tuning that is not cheap and also doesnt contain shopping cart. There I will explain why it must contain.

Reasons to have shopping cart in game
- Huge saving of your money. Sometimes you don't even know what exactly you want and you try different parts, spending a lot of money and nerves. After the update feel free to try any combinations without paying any money.
- Ability to check incompatible parts (example: bumpers if you already have bodykit) (Body Shop)
- Getting livery idea combining the body parts (Body shop)
- It's easier to make an URL car (Performance shop) (Additional Suggestion: would be interesting if we could check how the car drives without paying)
- Ability to get back to your previous livery you had before without spending VP on saving. (very useful if you have the slots in use) (Paint shop) 

Example of how it will be working
I made some pictures (sorry for quality). Look at the first one.

Pick everything you like. You are not limited at picking parts, but if you ran out of bodypoints or money, there will be a warning. There you can see price of all choise, bodypoints needed, amount of parts you picked.


[Image: mO2Lfez.png]


Old system still remains and is useful if you want to buy couple of parts fast.


[Image: Z75c0cT.png]


You got everything wanted? Time to purchase.
Shopping cart menu is now standing infront of "Front Bumper". Also you should be able to click on the cart icon under parts amount number (check the picture #1).


[Image: 2PzXhv0.png]


The shopping cart menu itself. There you can finally apply parts you want to buy. There you can see price of all choise, of every single item, bodypoints needed (as for the all choise, so for single items), names and categories of items. You can delete some items if you haven't wallets on them or changed your mind.

Cancel button returns you to shop and you can continue picking. Remove all button does what it says. Unlock & Buy button applies tuning to your car and makes money and bodypoints spent.

Bonus suggestion
I think you know that in Body shop and Accessories shop, unlike the performance shop, parts you purchased before aren't free after removing. But the suggestion is not only about it, but about the ability to save your carts. What do I mean: it's like the vinyl saving, but saving body parts or performance setup.

Performance shop example (imagine picture xd):
- URL Setup
- Drift Setup
- Full Tuned Setup, etc.

Body shop:
- Drift Body
- Race Body 
- Drag Body, etc.

You can save the cart with parts you didn't purchase yet to buy them later, or you can save the cart you already purchased to switch between differend styles for example.

Will it cost money? Personally, I would like to see the similar thing to the dyno setups. 1,000$ for saving performance cart (1 is free) and 500$ for exterior (Body shop or Accessories shop). Changing between carts is free.

Thank you very much for reading. Thanks for your positive feedback! Now we got more than 5000 views. I rewrote the suggestion from a scratch today, and someday I probably will remake the pictures (and also make some for bonus suggestion). 

Thanks again. I'm ready to discuss it (you can write me forum private message, write here or contact me in server (I am :Hyze) )

Good luck.
