Post Maniaplanet custom blocks
Nadeo have sorted out custom blocks officially:
- Creation tools
- Maniapark for sharing blocks (TM -> Objects, SM -> Objects)
- Beta server. Erm, except it has multiple performance issues. Use it for experimenting only, and even then use the NoLogs version.

Showcases: TM2 blocks - SM blocks

Heh, Nadeo released the importer one day short of 3 years after trackmania-blocks.com was registered. It expired a while ago. :P

I'm not sure what the state of play is if you encounter a map that uses a block you don't have. edit: seems there will be titles for custom blocks, in the same way Platform was a title for TM2.

Wonder how this is going to work out.

I really like the idea, I just hope there won't be too many crappy or buggy blocks on every map.

Have got it working already.

Never done anything with 3D software before, but it actually was surprisingly easy to create this awesome block.

awesome. :D

still got to find out a bit how the titlepacks work exactly, but i'm sure it's handy. doubt that they'll be used in official maps then, though.

Custom objects are only available in custom title packs. If you play the main Canyon or main Stadium title, you will not see any maps with them.

Post Stadium without rammstein?
Here's a TM2 Stadium title with items that are similar to the normal Stadium road blocks, but without the rammstein: TM² Stadium Racing Evolution (SRE) TitlePack. It also has a set of banked road items, with gentler banking than normal.

Quick Guide/Observations:
- Put SRE.Title.Pack.Gbx in My Documents\Maniaplanet\Packs
- Start Maniaplanet
- Select an empty station to load the title into
- Go into the title, and the map editor
- Click the Item Mode (tree) icon (or press F4)
- Read SRE Track Builder Tutorial for more help

- Note the gentle slope on the Connect blocks
- Item height can be changed by half the height of normal blocks
- The item number is in the top left but on many of the items there's a 2nd number down and to the right of that, which gives the number of the block it's based on, along with annotations such as + to mean it's longer, 1/2 to mean it's a gentle bank, etc.
- The outer edge of the track wall is a gentler slope than the normal stadium blocks - it's quite nice for climbing over
- The origin of some of the items seems to be set incorrectly, so placement (most noticeably rotation) can be a bit weird

Item Mode Guide/Observations:
- Items can be rotated by 15° at a time with the arrow keys (so in item mode you can't use arrow keys for placement any more?) and numpad + and -
- Items can intersect so it can get a bit blockmix crazy
- Placement height seems to be a bit buggy. Not sure if this is a general problem with item mode or if it's this title in particular

thanks for posting, looks interesting!

Maybe now we will finally see that Stadium without rammstein is even more boring :D
