ShootMania Storm: Royal - The Return of Nukes in the Underground

I am happy to announce that with the help of eyebo and Smoke from ManiaPlanet, that I've been able to tweak our TeamFNG_Royal mode to officially still be like old school ShootMania Beta 2!

When a player steps onto an underground block, the mode will auto-switch the weapon to the Nucleus weapon again, and back to whatever the player had originally when entering the underground block after exiting.  It's a little different than before.  In the screenshot below, the weapon will switch before you're actually in the tunnel, because you're detected as underground before you actually make it into the tunnel... so it switches a little earlier on some blocks, but feels exactly the same on others.  Some above-ground tunnels don't switch still either, so it's not QUITE there, but it's very close.; and still super fun.

Look out snipers in "JumpStart"...
you are safe no more.
For those that love the way ShootMania was at its origins, come play with us "old school" in our server!

Ubi Sale - All TrackMania Titles 70% off!!! (Uplay and Steam!)

Check out the Ubisoft Chinese New Year sale featuring all TrackMania titles at 70% off!
EDIT: The sale is also on Steam! (To filter non-maniaplanet games try this link - but it won't include TrackMania 2 Canyon, so you'll need to go to the other link for that.)

ShootMania Storm is also on sale... $6.79 on Steam

  • TrackMania 2 (ManiaPlanet) - DOES NOT require UPlay!
    • Canyon: $6.00 ($5.99 on Steam)
    • Stadium: $3.00 ($2.99 on Steam)
    • Valley: $6.00 ($5.99 on Steam)
    • Lagoon: $6.00 ($5.99 on Steam)!!!
  • TrackMania Turbo (REQUIRES UPlay): $12.00
There is a catch... you will have to purchase on UPlay and install/launch it the first time from there (unless they have a way of providing your game key through the UPlay UI now...)  Once launched, login with your normal ManiaPlanet account so the title can be tied to your ManiaPlanet account.  After that you can log in to the standalone ManiaPlanet application and enjoy the title there.

Calling all Friday Night Gamers to complete your collection!  We're still trying to put together at 20th WANniversary TrackMania tournament that will cover all TrackMania titles through history (TrackMania United Forever and TrackMania 2 [ManiaPlanet]).  We will be able to pull this off using only two servers, but we'll need all who wish to participate to complete their collection!!!
