View Full Version : Game host generated level playlist

I wish there was a way to, as the host of a game, build a playlist out of levels you wish to play with your playgroup or others who join your session. And with each level in your playlist, you can set the following options:

AI racers on or off
Time trial mode on/off (removes weaponators)
AI difficulty (from Easy all the way to Expert, and Custom if a level has custom AI defined for it)

This eliminates the need to publish multiple versions of the same level on your planet. This also increases the variety of levels we play when online since we get the usual story VS levels, as well as other good levels made by the community that's not Winter Epicness, Return to the Sandbox, or anything made by LBPK_Community.

I definitly have to agree, how could they not put time trial in this game, that should of been a mode on all of the race tracks, time trial is a most in karting games in my opinion! They could of used time trial as a way for use to unlock things as well, I honestly wish they should of waited a few more months to release this, I really do love this game, but the bugs are extremely annoying, did they not have a quality assurance team there to help with the bugs. lol

They need to overhaul the way the online setup works, right now you can get in a pod with only 3 other friends and choose to play whichever level you want but then if you want to play another level (of your choice) you have to back out all the way to the pod and re-group) which is slow and tedious and something I doubt most people do. Hence why Team Picks get so many plays and many other awesome tracks get nothing because the infrastructure is so abysmally set out!

What they need is 8 player lobbies with a designated host, it worked brilliantly in Modnation Racers and would work equally well here, right now it's just too cumbersome to test out a bunch of new levels with friends because of awful game design choices, a simple patch could alleviate these issues and breathe new life into the game, right now I fear only a handful of tracks (those that get sporadically team picked) will receive the recognition they deserve whilst many hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication will go unloved and unnoticed, only played by those within the immediate vicinity of the creator.

C'mon UFG, support your game properly, especially nows it free on PSN the next year, a chance to attract a whole new set of fans!

Yes, I agree with your suggestion. Additionally I think that a simple queue function for online races would be greate.
