So we should get a prop revamp update...
more props yes but a update no i think
The props are fine the way they are...
The only thing that keeps me thinking that they will release Gridmap with 0.22 is that they have posted it and marked it as #TeaserTuesdays on FB post (2nd March). Why would they tease something that will be in an update after this one. Unless they did it before.
Btw props are fine. Low poly at least allows to spawn more of them without affecting the performance that much.
Wendover was also a #TeaserTuesday, but hasn't been released yet
I think Wendover teaser was the only time such a thing happened and it was very likely because of the super realistic photoshop CaptainZoll posted a few days before. Developers probably wanted to prove that he is not getting unreleased content and that Wendover is early in development. However, this is just my speculation regarding that and I am not claiming it is true.
It use to be very common for them to do that, it still happens once in awhile (though the days of "Teaser Tuesday" are fairly recent so there isn't much precedent to go on). As other's have said, the Wendover is one example. The D-Series crawler got a bunch of teasers before the release of the summer update too. That's already going back to the begining of "Teaser Tuesdays"...
are they though?
now of all times would be a good time to update them, since they'll be making a whole bunch of new art assets for gridmap.
I think the only one that needs work is the Tire Stacks, because the tires don't separate and fly off.
I do also think a more realistic car crusher would be nice (I know there used to be some modded ones but I think those are all outdated now)
The barrel is the prop I'd most like to see get a full remaster - the Jbeam leaves a few things to be desired, and trying to stack them into walls or pyramids is really difficult at the moment because they often fall through each other.
Getting a few different 'loads' and skins for them would be nice too.
Blue-sky speculation would be that they eventually get tops that pop off with enough force, and a 'splash' effect like what we've got for gas tanks.
I think that props are eventually going to get an overhaul, at least for textures if nothing else, but we haven't seen any signs pointing in that direction. Props aren't something the community generally gets excited about, especially when compared to maps or vehicles.
I think that if we do get a more realistic car crusher (and it's one of the things I'd be surprised to not see developed between now and a full release), it'll be the mobile 'pancake' style car crusher - that way, we get both the crusher and an extra trailer for the T-series.
yes i will love a top down car crusher also.
ATM I use the large steel box and make it heave and large and drop it on cars
A mobile crusher trailer would be nice. I do also like your idea about the barrels, and even though I'm not sure about that being added officially anytime soon since props are not the devs' top priority, I do think that would actually make a really cool mod. Staying on the subject of props, more variety of them would be good as well, such as what I mention in my post in vehicle suggestions (I put it ther since I wasn't sure where else to post it)
You are trying to tell me the barrell is fine the way it is with its extremely buggy physics that glitches out more often than not? And also the gate with its messed up breakgroups that causes it to usually just fall off rather than open normally? And all the props with placeholder textures and no config thumbnails are fine too?
prediction: derby arena revamp in 0.23
Why would it need a revamp if it was already revamped, Gridmap needs a revamp way more than that
First, It was revamped recently
Second, "predictions" without any evidence aren't speculation
its already revamped? oh
--- Post updated ---
some clues say the wendover can use a supercharger. are we getting a sport model?
Probably yeah, almost all cars have sport versions or just faster versions, even the Pigeon, so why not
They could just make it a big fuel tank
