Re: IF there were to be a Car Wars video game, what would you like to see?

Heck yeah to all of the above. I'd love to see something where the players can opt for their favorite style of play: turn-based or full arcade. Some gamer friends might end up preferring one over the...

IF there were to be a Car Wars video game, what would you like to see?

Or NOT see?

Re: Car Wars @ Kublacon 2018

Re: Stagnation in Road Combat Designs .

The above list is cool, but if they’re still appearing on just straight road sections then we’re back to square one. HOW are those enemies engaging you? Perhaps an additional list can be generated...

Re: Stagnation in Road Combat Designs .

Re: Stagnation in Road Combat Designs .

Ooooo, based on that arena you already built, could you create a series of shapes that would allow you to add and remove walls and obstacles as the arena needed? Say the shapes/floor tiles are 1/4"...

Those are the outer dimensions? You could go with the 24x24 and add some garages and pits and back-of-house stuff along the edges. 1. to shrink down the playable area to what you think is appropriate...

Re: Car Wars Beginner Here! (Classic Edition)

Well, let's see what happens with 6e. :)

Re: Help! Looking for Boxed Boat Wars Designs ?

We don't know Racer's budget. :)

It's also in AU dollars, with another $65 for shipping. Eek.

Re: Convoy Steam game closest thing to Car Wars now...

Dark Wind is great. It's a rather amazing blend of turn-based and action games.
