    Default Track collision talk

    When im racing and for example on ubermall i do the turbo+BR on the hill through the doorway and hit one of the cute little pot plants as i fly past and bounce directly backwards off it and fall backwards in slow motion..

    Im no scientist but im sure a massive ship traveling at 800Km/h would demolish any pot plant.

    There are many silly little plants and signs on the tracks that appear defy physics and can repel anything.

    I would prefer it if they had no collisions and you could go through them like on other racers or even better they blow up when you hit them.

    I have no problem with real obstacles that can catch you out such as tunnel edge on VK do for instance, i just think some of the obstacles are questionable

    Whats everyone else opinion on these type of obstacles.


    What are your opinions

    I believe the Ubermall plants are made by Triakis.

    This is why they are indestructible.

    I made a badge for what you did - it's called "extreme gardening".

    One of the most obvious off-track launcher collision is the classical hair-pin on Chenghou. I got my weekly session earlier today as i carefully took the curve, only to be slammed in by a reckless noob and graciously been thrown out of it. Splendid.

    Now we can say that Triakis are just flying pot of flower...

    let me guess, Triakis also made lights?

    Destructible scenery in WipEout would be great. For the frequency it would be used though I don't think it's worth the large technical challenge or performance hit involved in implementing it - shame
