The little things
#1 Submitted: Wed, 07/05/2014 - 19:37

Just a topic about the little known, smaller details you may have noticed in C:R so far that are neat/made you laugh/made you appreciate the game more.

So after the latest update with stella, vlad, the city etc. I noticed a couple of things. I've only played the oil rig wreck level so far but there's loooots more texturing done to it now and some of the ice effects are brilliant.
The cops wrecked me and the announcer/nobby said "Police Brutality!" which made me laugh.
Also noticed that the full screen map now has a border to it which is nice.
The PIS graphic in the corner looks a bit different too.

That's it so far. What little details have you guys noticed?

Peds turn to look back at you when you chase them.

Sometimes you're not actually chasing them or even behind them, so it looks funny, but it's a nice detail.

Being able to 'Add event' on the main menu, so when you finish once race, it'll take you onto the select car bit and you can jump straight onto the next map

Also things like on frosty pass the fat women wear coats now, or maybe they always wore coats? I'm not sure :P frosty pass looks so god damn pretty now as well

all the little things that pop up out of the ground on Bleak City

The brake discs go around when the wheel is knocked off now.

Vlad's real name is apparently Fred. Actually I think that's a bug since it only appears when you waste him. Would be amusing. "A Viking warrior from another time. Or that's what he thinks at least. Fred is really just an ex-accountant for MagNuChem's little known knife division. Lost it one day and stole a car from the local drag strip."

CU:NT can apparently take a bit more abuse, and dish out quite a bit more. Either that or the Electric Blue is more fragile than I thought.

I like the progress bar nature of the traffic lights in Bleak City. Also the pop-up barricades.

I have the solid granite car powerup. Your argument is both invalid, and about to be flattened.

Wrecked opponents are represented by a skull and bones icon on the mini map. There's a ped with weird big boobs in Bleak City, and the pitbull dog is definitely male ... Also there are no more percentages of how much the cars/maps are finished?

Not really a "little" detail but I love that pinball mode has returned to it's former glory!!

I think I saw a ped trying to milk a cow on Countryslide.

That's about all I can recall at the moment.

I always heard it as something like "Race through time!" or "Desperate times!", which seemed kinda weird to me.
Also, announcer's "Epic Fail!" line when you're wrecked is PRICELESS.

Kinda makes me hope that they'd make a separate line for kinds of being wrecked, like that "Epic Fail!" comes when wasted by CU:NT or similar (or driving too fast into pop-up barricade), and when wasted by something bigger (i.e. DD's Plow) something like "Shhhh! It happens!"

I second that idea there. The little things. Nobby should do more lines :)
