ManiaPlanet 3 Early Release

The ManiaPlanet Blog announces that "Maniaplanet 3 is available to everyone," though they note that this is still considered an early release, so this will be available to even more everyone when it is officially released "by the end of June" (thanks Frans). The new version includes an enhanced user interface, a new central store, and new custom content creation options. Here's word on the changes this brings to TrackMania and ShootMania, their racing and shooting games:

  • TrackMania upgrades
    • Multi-environments possible and a TrackMania 2 title with all modes (Canyon + Stadium + Valley)
    • Car-mixing possible in multi-environments title: select any TM² car in Canyon or Valley
    • Scripted mode all redone to open to even more custom modes
    • Solo: add ghost & medals to custom campaigns
  • Shootmania upgrades
    • Netcode: major improvement thanks to an innovative netvision layer
    • Gameplay: new freelook key (space key), progressive walljumps, more stamina, etc…
    • Many more gameplay blocks: teleport, force field & gates, slides, sound blocker, etc…
