Inspired by an old Atari Game for the one, Fighter Jet documentary for the other.
Submitted By Picard on 10/01/29
Mars Explorer, picard, Feature Requests, New Physics 

Fellow Mars Explorers,
Now Contains 2 Requests
1) Laser's destroying lasers: A few days ago, I was playing Missile Command, and it occurred to me that on Mars, the lasers don't explode when they collide. What if they did? The ability to detonate a shot in mid flight would be incredibly interesting, and, although it would be difficult to use, it could turn the tables on a Tank Happy quarry. 
 
2) Clouds: Saw a documentary in which a type of fighter was routinely described as flying out of the cloud layer. I then realized that Mars has clouds in reality. Perhaps on this Mars as well?
 
Sincerely,
Picard
(Note: Will consolidate any further ideas here.)

It would be a cool effect, but it would also be increbibly hard to do intentioally. Even if it was accidental, it would still look REALLY cool!

We need smoke grenades to hide our vehicles. It would be especially useful in hide and seek.

Just increase the fog level. Smoke bombs would be helpful to ESCAPE not just play the game itself. Although I like the smoke bomb idea....

Speaking as a designer,
 
I have programmed a script similar to the "Lazer Script"
 
Reviewing the script, I don't think it would be that hard to program the lazers as a collider.
 
Clouds would be a wonderful addition to the game resulting in more complex and interactive dogfights.

I like the idea of the exploding lasers. It would make for some very interesting visuals in multi-vehicle duels.
 
The clouds would be nice for some airborne sneak attacks. Could create some interesting techniques in high places like Fai's Atlantis.
 
Keep the good ideas coming!

Oh neon, you are back to your old self, aren't you? (not that you changed at all, really) Lightning? it does happen on mars though, good point.... lol. How about lightning strikes are avaliable 1 time for every 100 points are scored by 1 person? and Buggy Dust? VERY GOOD IDEA! Clouds- They could be somwhat like real ones, and, if you flew through them, it could make your buggy have like little raindrops on it... Anyways, Clouds? WICKED INSANE AWESOME IDEA!!! (lol.)

I really like the cloud idea, because since the fog that we have is everywhere you can't really swoop out for a sneak attack.

Very nice idea, Picard. And, for those who suggested the bomb idea (I like it, but...), read the FAQ pages.

The bomb would not be a violent thing.
 
It would just create a cloud of smoke.
 
And if it is more appealing we could call
it something else that does not make it
look or sound like a bomb.
 
 
Neon
 
 
And the lightning would just be a fun effect
that will go to the to be added when I finish
this first type of list.
 
Oh and it really would be awesome if there
were actual clouds that would travel in patches
and would conceal vehicles that entered them.

why not items that can help or hinder you like in mario kart, maybe a quarry seeking bomb/laser, puddle of oil to slip up others, rockets to speed you up, etc.

good idea about the lasers, but lasers are energy. light dosen't collide and, well explode whem it comes into contact with more light! missile command is actually not lasers but missiles. I get where your point is, but lasers are energy.

Well, if you want to be that accurate, they would travel at or near the speed of light, making them impossible to see at all until they hit something, and near instant hits as well.

the lasers would be really annoying, especially the bots. they rapidly fire you. but it would be cool if two vehicles were directly in front of eachother with LASER LOCK on so the explode would be huge and rapid fire laser lock would make the boom larger causing would engulf the stage! hahahahaha this would work! :D
also the clouds are cool idea

The in game lasers are more like Railguns rather than actual lasers, because of the speed... But I don't know.
 
Something fun to work on...
