    It's my opinion that colored lines would ruin the great game.
    Most of free rider is made up of sketch drawings and great authors who have worked hard to find a way to make tracks look great with just the black ,grey and white .
    It's the theme of free rider hd to have a sketch drawing with a bike driving in it, you take away the sketch drawing and you might as well take away the bike.
    Now if y'all add just colors like brown and green and tan that might just add to the nature detail for beginners but if you add every color under the shinein' sun then it'l be like a painting instead of a sketch drawing .
    I just want to see how many people feel the same as me on this topic

    and with colour, these same great authors who have worked hard would be able to create better tracks. night tracks will be able to actually look like night tracks, shading will look infinitely better, water wont look terrible, lava will look threatening, etc. with grey, black and white youre limited in what you can and cant accurately draw; with colour, you would be limited to only your imaginiation
    the theme of frhd is to create your own levels and have other people ride and enjoy them, by adding in colour you arent removing the ability to sketch and draw in tracks
    how is this a bad thing? look at what Maple can do in 10 minute intervals with colour and similar tools to what the frhd editor has: https://drawception.com/player/702059/sixth/drawings/22/

    Thats turning frhd from a game into an easel. If you want to draw in colour do so elsewhere, but bringing colour to fr will imo negatively impact it. Part of the challenge of drawing a track requires you to only use three different colours, its a challenge to make water look realistic and lava look threatening, and thats what differentiates the good authors from the bad. Adding colour would turn it into a whole different game but hey this is just some retards opinion

    Why don't you ask Char remove Goal powerup creating button?
    Goal powerup is YELLOW.

    If YELLOW will ruin the game, your featured track ruins the game too.
    Then so,
    who is the mother f*cker featured it?

    Adding color would diminish what makes freerider freerider. As CityShep said, there was once color but they took it down. If they took it down, it obviously Didn't work well. Colors would make the game to simple and take away the challenge of drawing realistically. I've drawn pictures with 'paint' and they come out terribly, but with the simple 2 color format, it looks like a picture drawing and looks fantastic. It's kind of Freeriders signature you might say. Please don't ruin the game, and if you do, make it temporary.

    I strongly disagree, freerider2.org was amazing. [Notice only newbies hating on colour - as they have yet to experience the best free rider site - freerider2.org. ]

    If free rider 2 has color and y'all like it so much then be satisfied they have it there and leave this game the way it is

    Users who boast that fr2.org was the best clearly never played the superior alternatives enough to have realized that next to all the great tracks on there were either stolen from Trackmill, .me, and CR creators. Nothing good ever came out of that spammy, ad-ridden, hacked out site.
