Nadeo Showing ShootMania This Week, TrackMania 2 Patch Nears

A new post on the ManiaPlanet Blog by Nadeo CEO Florent 'Hylis' Castelnerac gives a state of the ManiaPlanet address (thanks Frans). Topics include plans to soon launch Maniaplanet 2.0, current beta testing of ManiaLive 2, and their plans to show off the map editor of ShootMania Storm on Saturday at Paris Games Week. He also mentions a new patch they will soon be pushing out for TrackMania 2: Canyon:

At the studio, we have just released the second update that players can activate in their player page if they want. Combined, you have an improved support for custom car model, no waiting time for official attempt at launch if you have previously launched the game since more than five minute off course, a restart after updates and various optimisations, stability issues and compatibility questions. The update will be pushed soon to all players. ()

And if you have this update, you can discover a plug in of map generator that we just released in the forum ()

We are also working on some new blocs for Canyon. We could have improved the current collection here or there, but we have chosed to focus on one set of blocs in an already existing theme. So, it will be less interesting for combinations but should bring something to the feelings divertity of the environment.

One of our big topic at the moment is the economical system. Within two weeks, we should have switched on the economical ladder as well as the economical balancing system that transform some planets into economical points in order to stabilize the economy and the inflation. Starting from there, we will be able to reward with planets audiences for manialink and servers.

Hello Hylis. I'm fascinated to see how Shootmania will turn out, so good luck with that.

In the meantime there seems no better opportunity for me to say directly to someone at Nadeo that I was tremendously disappointed to find that TrackMania2 lacked the brilliant Platform mode from the previous games. As soon as you bring Platform back, TM2 will go on my shopping list.
