I want to drive on river dam!

Postby TheOnLY » Sun Jun 19, 2016 7:48 pm

I drove past a rive dam some time ago and thought "How cool would it be to drive on that thing?" and i couldn't get that idea out of my head, that it would be a cool thing to do in GRIP, so i made (crappy) little concept of how it could look.

It would basically be a huge long wallride that allows you to see enemies ever far away. It definitively would be the landmark on the map.

If you for whatever reason dont know what i am talking about, these things but a lot bigger:

So behold my epic paint skills :mrgreen::

I also would love to have a Liddo 5 night track as it could have some huge firelies, glowing plants and an incredibly clear sky where you can see a ton of stars or moon(s) or other sick stuff.

Actually your drawing is not that bad, it clearly shows what you mean, and that you think about more than one way to go on the dam. And what i like is that it would allow us to see the lake when driving on top of it, instead of just driving on the lower side of the wall, seeing nothing but concrete. ;)

The logic continuation is for GRIP to explore riding through a waterfall:

Water effect on the hud would work wonders ;) (and kill our fps)

Oh riding through a waterfall ! We definatly need this :!:

The waterfall could be on the side of the track on a dangerous mountain road, like this.

Or we could drive in the shadow of the waterfall.


Some more pics and ideas:

Spoiler: show
There could be a shortcut over a tiny bridge into a tunnel ...
Image


... with a halfblind jump trough a giant waterfall out of the cavern ...
Image

Image

and back onto the main track.
Image
Image


Or we dont see the waterfall at all because we drive through a section like this.
Image

(I love those half open tunnels in real life. Please include some.)
Image


Or the hole map is a waterfall ;)

I remember in a game called "Rumble Racing" for PS2 there was a shortcut through a cave ending in a jump hidden behind a waterfall. Didn't see that shortcut until I realized the other shortcuts led straight for it (which took about twenty races on that track :/).

And driving on a dam has crossed my mind as well. Perhaps something could potentially trigger the dam's failure, altering the track immediately and causing a huge hazard...? Mud slides, etc.
OK, tell it to me straight... in Rollcage Stage II for the PS1... was Winter Wonderland II even possible to Gold Medal...? :cry:

Retreating is Running Away. Falling Back, however, is simply Advancing in a Different Direction.

I thought it could have been cool to introduce that dam on the current Island map:
