Mars Explorer, PanzerAce, Feature Requests 
This Document originally posted in the "Mars Explorer" Group

Hello All,
 
Im sure with all this new excitement, everyone will be wondering about new vehicles and ideas for the new continuation of Mars Explorer.
 
I have created this page to effectively list all vehicle requests with relevent information and that are carefully thought out. Bonus points for Pre-made models or drawings, as it would help a modeler create the vehicle you envision, if the idea is given preliminary approuvel by the comnunity and devellopmental team.
 
This page may also be used to draft possible vehicles, space bar functions for multiple vehicles and a forum to discuss the creation of future solutions to vehicle problems.
 
In Short: Good Vehicle REQUEST:
 
I think that Wintergreen's Spider  (http://marsxplr.com/view-815) would be a good vehicle for Mars Explorer. The versions which I think are best are the Three and Four legged versions. I believe they look the nicest and have the most functionality. Links to both the vehicles in Sketchup on dropbox are here:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/80221000/Four%20legged.skp  (4 Legged)
 
 
This vehicle would be able to climb all angles and to hand upside down on objects with it's space bar ability. It would have "green" powered lasers and shoot like the buggy. The spider would walk on water at 25 MPH and on flat land 65 MPH. 
 
BAD VEHICLE REQUEST:   make a huge dragon robot1!11111!1!1
 
In the future, please make all Mars vehicle requests on this post, following the example posted above.
 
In case of doubt about the quality of your request, PM me.
 
Thank You For Your Time,
PanzerAce

Actually, a dragon robot wouldn't be that bad of an idea.

On X-Plane, you have an option to create your own aircraft. Whether it be a plane, boat, car, or some space station–you can create aircraft. Perhaps there can be a way to add in other vehicles via downloading. You can then use them in the game.

Drop ships! :) The Thistle Carrier(s) 1 and 2 I have made another one similar to the second one, but with holes for buggies that are being carried to shoot through. I made these a while ago and I was thinking, maybe they can hold buggies inside them, but they can also pick up tanks. But both the tank and the drop ship will have to click a certain button e.g. Z to let the drop ship pick up the tank.

That was suggested before (the visual transformation of the vehicles when switching). It'd be a really cool effect, but not practical as of right now.

I'd like to see the tank become more balanced. As it is, it is all offense and no defense. I'd like to see it smaller and faster. Not as small and as fast as a buggy, but small and fast enough to be able to use without "tank-noobing." I'd like its fire-rate to be decreased a bit. Perhaps change its laser setting so that it shoots 3 greens then a red so as to decrease tanks trapping buggies on the ground. 
 
The tank also has the issue of being able to reach the scene of the quarry-battle. Perhaps give it a sort of jump function that would allow it to catapult X-amount of feet/yards/miles in any direction.

I have been thinking of a motorboat, when on land, press {spacebar} to launch/unlaunch wheels.
 
Like the jet hold "E" for full throttle and "Q" for no throttle.
 Use Arrow keys to direct sailboat to water (with wheels deployed{on land}).
 
I just had this idea.
 
Id hope u like the idea producers of Mars Explorer.
Thx

Alright, I'm gonna give my sub/boat spiel again. A little (wow, actually a long) while ago (I'm getting old), Seb posted a link to a little hydrofoil he made (http://marsxplr.com/view-8801), I loved it, and this particular vehicle could transform into a sub with a press of the spacebar and an animation. What do you guys think?

Etah, your model is amazing, but let's be honest here: What can you do with a carrier?

One good idea (I will expand my idea in the following days) is a heliocopter that is equipped to pick up other vehicles. It would be unarmed until it picked up another vehicle (any vehicle but jet). Its then-heavy weaponary would be strong agaist jets and tanks, but not accurate enough to shoot buggies well. (autofire vs jets or something? (maybe missiles)) It would resemble a scaled-up GTR34 microdrone with grapple claws similar to etah's.

Based on the last few posts, it seems like people want a carrier. Here are some questions to think about with the carrier:
 
1. Would it be driven by a player, or would it constantly be flying/driving/floating back and forth across a map?
 
2. Is it beneficial? Sure, a carrier would be cool. However, would it be practical to have my buggy carried across the map with poor visibility rather than drive/fly across a map and have the opportunity to snipe. 
 
3. How would it work? What buttons would be used and whatnot?
 
4. Would lasers affect it? 
 
5. What weaponry would it have? (I think it should be unarmed)
 
6. How big would it be?
 
7. How much lag would having a few of these in a server of 8 create?

Re: Vehicle Request/Debate Page

1. I think a player should be able to fly it
2. Maybe it could be faster then a buggy flying when it is a t top speed? Maybe it could also carry tanks? That would be great for getting tanks around the place quicker, but it could encourage team work, team games and stuff.
3. I think it should work like a jet when it has it's landing gear out. But faster.
4&5. I don't think that it should be able to get quarry, but I think that it should have some sort of laser just to knock an attacking buggy off course for example. Maybe it could have small blue lasers that scatter randomly?
6. I think that it should be big enough to carry about two buggies inside, and one tank underneath.
7. Idk...
 
"I have made another one similar to the second one, but with holes for buggies that are being carried to shoot through. I made these a while ago and I was thinking, maybe they can hold buggies inside them, but they can also pick up tanks.

Hello! My new vehicle request is a crossover vehicle which combines some strengths of each land vehicle into a multi-purpose vehicle which is competent at all quarry-getting tasks on the groud, but is not as good in any area as any other current unit. 
 
Apperance:
 
The main body of an M8 Greyhound armored car (6 wheels).
 
But without the turret. It would be able to go 120mph after a slower acceleration. It would be almost the size of the tank, bigger than the buggy and have decent firepower (probably regular buggy firepower). Im thinking as a possible special ability it could have whells like the CC car so that it could operate as a heavier, slower turning but faster hovercraft. **note it would not go more than 20 alt off the ground**. To complete where the turrent would be, I suggest a spike on top similar to the Zumwalt Class Destroyer: 
 
But of obviously lower profile. *or just a standard cockpit*
I would appreciate however if we gave at least one vehicle the power to shoot jets.. (maybe the tank, spider or this)
 
Thoughts? Potential Modelers?

A slow flying, low power biplane would bring back 1.9 type strategy wherein one must use the terrain to dodge attacks and to trick your opponents. A biplane would also add a lot of style and fantasy that would differ wildly from all the predictable sci-fi vehicles.

Mac Dane's biplane http://marsxplr.com/view-7626

Check out video https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1lisIBK7las#t=180s

Ultimately though, I feel the best use of a developer's time would be toward networking bug fixes and DEATH! to (Not Responding).

@Panzer: If I did that, it would just be the boat.
@Kruncher: I like the idea of a P-51 Mustang (WWII plane), not to fast, and not too slow. :P
Althought I have suggested a P-51 for CC... So no fighting over it :P

Probably, though the community and dev team would have to like it. :)

The Heli should be a V-22 Osprey
The Drop-Ship could be a C-17

This car would be nice, I don't know what you mean by 'good' and 'bad' posts, but really, what is there to describe about a unicycle?
this car would run over water over a certain speed, has fast accel and is very light and could have a different sort of glider, maybe like a hanglider.

@Neon i disagree.
 
Nice pic: Maybe a little too close to a buggy but if we wanted a hydrofoil boat or something to be a fast, manouverable hovercraft, yeah

Three things:
a) We seem to be forgetting that in the FAQ it says that this game is not about killing each other (unless you're a tank noob)
b) +1 to a previously stated idea of a amphibian car
c) The biplane idea. It has a lower wing, yesh? Put that below the fuse and you have a hydrofoil. A boat/biplane combined. It would /have/ to be jet powered though.
 
I think what we're looking for something sufficiently different to what we already have. ie - faster car, smaller plane - all pointless. Yes, while the biplane is my favourite, I think the current four vehicles are perfect. Except for the lack of a boat, and there's no way to make it look and work good.
 
From an intermediate programmer's veiwpoint, what we could do is enable custom vehicle meshes - but it has to fit one of the current four vehicle types - then send the mesh as vertex positions over the 'net. In my opinion, too complicated for its worth, but if it would make people happy...

Have you ever seen seb's hydrofoil. It might change your opinion on a boat.
I feel Mars's strength is in vehicles and its fun free gameplay. We should expand/exploit those.

That is kinda what I suggested with a biplane/HYDROFOIL - at least that's what I meant...
 
Yes, Mars does have a strength in its vehicles. It doesn't have six different types in eighteen different classes, ranging from F1 to hyperbipe. I think we should stick with the current set, unless an obvious gap appears. As good ol' leonardo said : "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication..." and he invented the concept of a tank.
 
Fun free gameplay - until some n00b shows up, switches to tank then keeps firing until the host boots them. In the year I've been gone, they seem to have become a bigger problem.

Oh, a question (yes, another one):
 
Why does everyone use sketchup? Surely the same models could be made more easily with blender?

Apparently sketchup is "easier"

Blender is definitely more intricate

Guess that's another thing that makes me a freak - I can't understand Sketchup for a moment, but Blender = simples for me.
 
A vehicle idea I doodled up ages ago:
 
It flies... sorta
A hovering vehicle, that once underwater, becomes the equivalent of a submarine. Utterly pointless and totally already-done, but hey, it looks coo- sorry, looks dreadful.
 
xD this was me + blender a year ago, a few days before I left. I just tweaked it, added a cockpit, and made othe minor tweaks.

How is that possible? I know how to use Sketchup, but Blender? Dawha?

Blender is vertex-based - you position corners, and the rest is done by blender itself. ish.
Sketchup does..... ? ..... then converts it to vertices for unity. Personally, I think sketchup tries to hide what's really going on. It also makes it very difficult to get low-poly models, in my experience.
 
Please try avoid 'dafuq' and other such inferred language, for the sake of others around here. ;)
 
Edit: Thanks for changing it. ;)

Personally I find Blender easier for...well any project I work on...then again thats just my opinion.  Work in whatever feels more comfortable!

I think creating vehicles is great, but one strong factor that held back the first attempt at resurrecting this game was feature and vehicle requests.
