Symmetric or Asymmetric Cars?

Postby Komsur » Fri Feb 03, 2017 6:01 pm

Hi, so with the release of the new Vintek car, I realised that I really like asymmetric models, ones where you can clearly tell its upside down.

What are your thoughts?

I do like them too. Gives a nice touch to details.

Like em both. No clear preference. I think I'd be less inclined to see a car completely different upon flipping though.

Would prefer to see horisonal asymmetry.

I like both, I would like to see a few more assymetrical, but not necessarily a majority, some middle ground would be nice I guess :)

And I would love to see a car (probably symmetrical) that has inverted primary and secondary colours on the other side, although that's more of a customization thing :)

I like it. Makes the flipping more interesting.

I'm personally torn, since the asymmetric design gives them more identity, but at the same time it drives me mad when the car is not the right way up for me xD

Yeah 50% of my crashes with the Juggernaut happen because I want to fllp it on the "right" side :mrgreen:

Hmm... If that's the case, is there any real way to tell which side of the car is up? If there isn't any true up, perhaps every time the car is spawned in (in the garage, the track, wherever) the game should randomly choose which side of the car to have up... this way it will blur the line between up and down and just have more of a focus on the car as a whole... I mean these things flip all the time... I see no reason for there to be a distinguished top and bottom... even with an asymmetric design.

I wouldn't expect too many asymmetrical cars in the game guys. That's around 50% more work per vehicle. But I would certainly like to see more

It's not about which side is by design meant to be the one at the top, but which one I prefer to have at the top :P This kind of thing is known as OCD. Once you get that, it can make your life a nightmare xD

Ahh, good point. I hadn't considered that as being part of the issue but that does make sense.

i think you could actually have some inbetween design: not completely asymmetric, but also not completely symmetric! So parts are the same on both sides and some details not. So it would not be 100% more work to make the other side, just deleting/adding some details. And you still have some of the cool asymmetric effect with less work.
