Well that's the bias part of the game, something which exists in all parts of voting and multiplayer. I dunno is my answer.

i dont want voting! im going to make a hypercar that will be super fast, super acel. no handiling (i love drifting), near max air control, max revenge strength, and f7 endurance.
ill be good with it but i bet nOObs are gonna go: "he has an awesome car, and its stat hacked, so he must be good. i vote class A for it so i can unfairly kill it instantly with rad1 and dr monstaa and look skilled doing it!"


my car i hope people vote class B Sad

It's not balanced enough, pretty good though.

I would make my care have almost max speed, while still being able to have enough strength to take a few hard hits without dying. I'll keep his power save pretty low, but make his aerial control higher.

I'll also going to lower his handling so that I can heighten his strength and speed, or power save.

Random Car selection - Would be an interesting option to implement and would add to the strategy since you don't really know what car you are getting and you would need to adjust to the settings for the race.

This was just taken from one of my topics I started and I didn't know about this one. Whats your opinion on random car selection?

I think Randomness would be good... within tiers of course. I wouldn't want to see myself get a randomly selected Tier D car and all my opponents get a randomly selected Tier A.

Or an option of either Tier Class or all random.

Maybe when creating cars there will be an option of a class and that will give you a certain number of stats you can use on your car instead of everyone making their car completely unstoppable.

What if Omar completely knocks out custom cars?

Why would he do that? He already said that he would have custom cars as an option.

This is just a random thought. Think about it...What if some hackers just kept making unstoppable cars? Multi-player wouldn't be as fun. Although I think the better option is to have custom Cars based on tier with a predetermined amount of stats the player can use.

I probably won't be making any custom cars simply because it is very tedious to learn the coding. Although having an application that allows for easy creation of a custom car would be nice especially for people who aren't gifted with the knowledge of building a car, or for new people.

Look, if you've read the previous posts, you would know that Omar will have a class system of voting.

For example, if you've made a custom car, and you add it to the game, before you can use it, other people will vote on what class it should be based on its looks. Then, depending on what class your car is in, it will have a certain amount of stat points or whatever.

Excuse me...I think I worded that wrong. What if some people hack the system and somehow learn to implement their own car with whatever stats.

I meant hackers as in real hackers that cheat the system.

Sorry for not making things clear.

IDEA: Since we were talking about taking MASHEEN out earlier I think we could keep him for a hypothetical game mode.
I think that MASHEEN should be in a hypothetical game mode called DIGGER or DIGGER's Revenge. A player is chosen randomly to be "Digger" and has all stats maxed out except acceleration and stunts, while the other players cars are all different colors of nimi.

I couldn't find a topic to post IDEA in so I just added it here.

Nice idea.

However, real hackers haven't been a problem for NFM online yet, so why should it be in the future?

It always tends to happen whenever there is an online game. For some reason one person knows how to hack the system and then it spreads like a virus.

Enough negative talk...This probably won't happen anyway because whats the fun in that anyway? I cannot wait for multiplayer!!

Omar Waly said the jar file was completely untouchable. Which means nobody can find/edit it. I hope its true.
