    Default Racemodes for SlipStream GX

    Hey guys. Now since we have our own subforum for SSGX thanks to Hellfire, we want to make the most possible use out of it. There is one pending question in the room for quite a long time: Racemodes!

    We actually have a bunch of racemodes which will definately make the cut. These are:
    Single Race
    Tournament
    Time Trial
    Speed Lap
    Endurance A single race with 15 laps
    Head To Head Race against one AI enemy [needed for campaign story]
    Zone Unlike WO, a track will be generated while racing and random cornerings etc. will be added up. Normal race tracks won't get converted into a Zone track.

    Actually these are quite a few modes already but we would like to include something fresh aswell. So if you have ideas for fancy race modes, post them here. No rating intended as of now, just collecting ideas. We might create a poll later on. Also keep in mind we could simply add our well known "Eliminator" mode but maybe there are some bright ideas here which we like to collect

    I found "License" mode in Gran Turismo very helpful for learning tracks and game physics and i was always thinking about this game mode in WOHD. Those short tests were very challenging and i'm sure they could work out pretty well in WOHD. Imagine a series of short quests like:
    - fly through second corner on Chenghou Project forward on phantom speed without scratching a wall,
    - hit perfect Lap on supersonic speed on Anulpha Pass (flying start just before starting line at supersonic speed),
    - do a double BR on Metropia Reverse before mag strip,
    - beat time of 32:00 on Anulpha Venom without barrel rolls
    - fly some part of the track under xx seconds
    - many more possible, if you know Gran Turismo License game mode you know what i'm talking about

    This could be the way to unlock higher speed classes or ships.

    I hope you understand what i'm talking about

    Hmm that actually reminds me on the PS3 trophy system to be honest Since we will also have achievements, we already have things like "beat a lap time of" or "don't scratch the wall"

    But these things describe only tiny extra tasks, mainly made in single races or time trials. What we're actually looking for is a complete new race mode [doesn't need to be something from the Wipeout universe].

    If you are looking for a completely new race mode why not consider "Green Races"? 8 players, BR's on, unlimited energy and only turbos in weapon pads

    Definately a cool idea

    Could be called something like "Turbo mode" [of course not xD]

    I like the concept of calling it a Green Race
