    Here's a couple of things that I'd really love to be added to the game in the future. They would make track design for me a lot more fun and give me more creative freedom.

    Power-ups:
    Keys/switches: I'd love to see something like this added. This power-up would remove a line that you link the key to. It would make more metroidvania style tracks possible where you have to backtrack and stuff like that to get keys to open doors or in this case remove lines.

    Teleporter: This for me is the thing I want to see in this game the most. With it I could create so many awesome things that I've been thinking of and these would be really amazing for my latest track. How it would work is that when you hit the teleporter power-up it would teleport the rider to the teleporter linked to this one. It would work just the same as right now when you press backspace to go a checkpoint back. I don't think it would be too hard to add to the game but it would be amazing.

    Slow motion: I'd like an option for your slow motion to work not just in the air but also when you hit the ground. This would be awesome for under water tracks or tracks in space. The effect would stop when you would hit a second slow motion power-up.

    Zero-G: I don't really know how this would work but some unofficial free rider site has it in it's beta and it's sure cool !

    Forum:
    I'd like to see the 'recent posts' tab when you're offline and look at the forum to be added when you're logged in. That would be really nice.

    Sounds:
    I'd like to see background sounds added to tracks but mostly low volume sounds for in the background that you could link to invisble power-ups, so that when you hit that power-up, you would hear a sound, like a bird or a rock falling and stuff like that.

    Featured Tracks:
    I'd like to see a page just like trending that has featured tracks on it. These tracks would be the best tracks out there chosen by some members of the community together with the staff. This would only be for the very best tracks which means that maybe once a week or even less often a track would be added.

    Oh and a gladiator helmet would be great for the shop !

    Yeah I agree, I could work with the other ideas not being added into the game but for me the teleporter would give me so much more freedom with my track design and featured tracks would be awesome to show those tracks off :p.

    Featured tracks aren't even here yet? That's definitely something you guys need to get on. The other ideas are also pretty sweet as well, it's nice to see this game expanding with more ideas and becoming less monotonous.

    Yeah, I like all of these ideas. Love the switch idea. Teleporter would be awesome, if used correctly.
    On the weekends I have been working on new editor. This will make implementing new ideas much easier, as the code base is much cleaner / less rushed.

    Select Tool Iv been working on.
    Should allow you do delete in bulk, move lines around, and fill.

    I know the curve tool wasn't a huge success with the classic authors. Mainly due to the quality of the curve it created. I am going to redesign that, and make it so bezier curves are inside the track code, rather than broken up into multiple segments. The main goal of that would be to reduce the track code size. Currently curves and filling in segments take up a large portion of rendering time / code size.

    As for featured tracks
    We have agreed this is a good idea. We just have to implement it so people can be in charge of choosing the tracks. We haven't forgot about it, don't worry.

    dang. That looks awesome. Just two things though
    1. keep the buttons on the bottom like it currently is. It feels fresher than old FR versions.
    2. I like the new curve tool!
    Edit: Okay I lied. Another thing: DO NOT ADD A FILL TOOL! That would make spammy tracks SOO MUCH EASIER!!!

    and Ill leave if you add it! D:<

    2). Thats good, I think it needs to be improved
    3) Fill tool will be experimental

    A nightmare because it is bigger than most of the top 10 tracks themselves (I think, it's around 2.4KK, don't quote me if I'm wrong please though I can't handle the spam butthurt I created)

    Its all the filling. Large tracks are not difficult to render. Its the dense ones.
