insane was awesome, the best offroad game i've ever played. the various game modes were so much fun!Damn that looks good! I have always wanted an proper offroad game and that looks like it would be it! Shame that my laptop is too slow for new games.
Have you guys ever played 1NSANE? It is more arcade than hardcore offroading, but damn it was good and there were some epic mods for it. Me and my friends had such a good time playing it over 10 years ago, good memories.
Which truck were you using? Some are more sensitive than others, from my experience the Kamaz (orange cab-over) is especially easily damaged, I suspect because of its limited ground clearance.My main gripe is with the 'damage' system that gives you 150 damage and stalls the truck if you touch a rock at the side of a tarmac road, or gives you 62 damage for going over a crest.
This I can absolutely agree to. Once you get used to it the camera becomes workable, but it's still very cumbersome.The camera is also still crap, why they couldn't fix this after the tech demos and betas is beyond me.
The crane is another thing that is pretty obtuse. Probably because you'd intuitively expect to control each of the crane's axes seperately, but they've set it up so that you basically control the position of the grapple.I came across a tree in my path and I remembered that in the tech demo you could fell trees (this is apparently an achievement too so I'm not wrong about it), so I tried to use the grappler crane to get a tree. Now if you were designing controls of a multi-axis crane, it would make sense to have those axes controlled separately. Instead they have tied the controls of multiple axes to multiple buttons, meaning that when you press one the crane will do what you want, accompanied by other actions that might completely counter what you had previously done.
I heard that the length of the winches was a conscious gameplay decision, because the devs found that (realistically) longer cable made things too easy. The trees you can attach the winch to are all static and can't be felled anyways. The smaller trees and saplings where you can't attach the winch can be felled by driving over them with a big enough vehicle and enough momentum.Also the winches are pretty poor. They appear to only have a few metres of cable, which is complete rubbish for trucks of this size, and don't seem to be powerful enough to pull these trucks or fell trees, which I'm pretty sure would be possible with the real thing. Still disappointed.
