Do you mean how many times somebody crossed all the 24 tracks or how many times somebody got exploded?

Anyway a problem with that is that it would limit it to 4 players only (can't have more than 4 onscreen counters). Or even 3 considering there's already an onscreen timer. Or maybe there can't even be counters in case TM adds one timer for each player, which would then again limit it to 4 players
You just lost the game.

Actually those timers will work even if you cant see them on screen, as i discovered by Sektor's help, the onscreen timer thing is just a coulisse (is that proper english btw? cant think of better word atm, bear with me lol), it doesnt do anything else than just animates the number. You need to have separate COUNTER datatype for all the checks.

So i think the Vike (note the the) could actually fix this and allow more timers/onscreencounters to be visible on screen!

So this onscreen counter can hold any value in it? and it looks like the timer i have now? yeah i was thinking to make a counter like that too, but i thought it would be best if it had more precision than just side-to-side counter, so you can tell who got farthest much more precise way. Nevertheless, i like the idea of seeing how many times you had been from side-to-side :D

The problem is that newbies who would play this would get confused if their car exploded all of a sudden (time's up pal!) but they haven't hit anything:

"omfg dis map suck its bugged y the fuk did i even eksplode fuk de creator ill never play dis anymore!!!!!!!!"

Instead of on screen counters, you could use the numbered cars to display each player's score or just use add_score.

omg epic idea, i could start it from 9 and end to 0 and after 0 it would explode. if its higher than 9, it could still stay 9 until you have less than 9 seconds time. although, the car numbers are almost invisible at that high zoom-out levels (this map is impossible/lame to play without debug mode enabled since you cant predict the trains at all otherwise).

displaying info on the car has potential. i already wanted to try it but didnt find u use on one of my maps so far.

would work very well here because you dont even have to modify deltas.

You could make the trains drive at 0.100 or 0.200 by altering the train zones which change the speed. Have a look at:
Trains pull out of stations at 0.100 and they drive at 0.200 on their way into stations. If your sound acceleration is set nicely, you'll usually hear them hoot if they detect a vehicle is in their way. (Just like normal traffic can honk if you get in their way.) Peds run at 0.050 and Tank reverses at 0.049, so it never squashes them that way round.

If you had the trains going in different directions, it would feel a bit like those "animal crossing the road" arcade games.

Maybe rotating the level 90°? A 4:3 screen is a significant percentage wider than it is tall, so the visible length of each track would be longer. Bit more warning time. (You don't see as many tracks ahead of you but it probably works out better, if you keep trains at 0.400 speed.) If you haven't already, dropping the ground to the lowest level the map editor allows will give you a higher camera - it doesn't zoom in when you go below the standard ground level.

Why would i want to make trains slower? then it would be too easy... good tip though; i didnt even know its possible!

Yeah, but then again, it would be too hard to drive with a car, that could work with a ped. you would have to drive in middle of all the time to get maximum safety in that case... did you try the map yourself at all? its supposed to be played with debug mode on and almost highest zoom possible.

No. as i said; you need to play with debug mode on. Its impossible/boring to play without it.

Its as low as i could make it, to make it look like an island (didnt plan it to be a map like this at first, and had no idea the altitude matters, and changing it now would be around 2-4 hours job or more because of the bugs that will cause crashes...). but as said, it doesnt matter since debug mode is how you should play it.

Nice animation.

This train wasn't so lucky but it could have been much worse. I've been to that train station many times.

Jesus Christ I almost got deafened by that high pitch on that video!

Anyway, at least your trains run in the snow over there... in the UK even one flake of snow causes total chaos on the train services... when the staff are not on strike... again! Absolutely useless in the UK when snow hits, I mean hell we get snow nearly every year around the same time and yet everything grinds to a halt :roll:

Good old Network Rail, which is actually created by the government for the actual tracks/infrastructure but has various privatised companies who operate the actual train services. Either way, they keep saying everyone should use trains instead of cars and yet they increase ticket prices and the staff go on strike nearly every week. Oh, and any leaves or tiny bit of snow on the tracks causes total chaos here. Fucking idiots I tell you. ;-)

Getting slightly off-topic here I think 8-)

rising ticket prices, strikes, trains failing due to snow, trains often too late. all sounds familiar :lol:

do you have a Stuttgart 21 too?

Same here pretty much with any public transportation system. they have problem in trains with melting the brakes at winter when theres a lot of snow. at winter the trains are always late, at least 5 mins if not 10.
