    What would the select move tool do?

    Select move tool allows you to select a section of your track and move to to another spot.

    I think different colors within the grayscale, power ups, auto save database, and multiple author tiers would be most beneficial for FRHD.

    I dont think the copy and paste tool, the fill tool, the turret would be a good idea. that would ruin the game and make previous tracks look worse/ lower quality.
    I really want the vehicle's. I think that would revive FRHD. They worked really well with FR2. Just dont let new vehicles ruin the ghosting system, because i remember you could just use the blob to get the world record in FR2. - maby add more vehicles using the same system as the heli.

    I agree with the fact that there are some ideas that will corrupt Free Rider, but the turret and an edit to the copy and paste tool won’t. It actually would just make it easier to save and share track codes, as for the turret, it may be unnecessary, but will give the game a more intense play and feel like less of a still game. In my opinion, ideas that should not be used on this list include the fill tool, colors outside of the grayscale, and the select move tool. Any player could just spam the select move tool and create a super long track that is identical and spam. Colors outside of the grayscale will destroy what make Free Rider so unique and original. Once we get colors like orange, red, green, etc. we will have so much spam tracks and crazy tracks that make you want to barf. Also a fill tool will just take away from all the hard work artists like WyattStonhouse and will let people abuse the powers. I honestly feel like there are some tools that we have right now that should only be allowed to have if you have a special rating, such as elite author. You really need to focus on updates that the community wants rather the the most cost efficient, because in the near months you most likely will lose all of your good authors and then everyone will follow. Leaving you with no more new tracks for IOS/Android. Not to mention deleting tracks is an easy way for FRHD to come back alive.

    Autosave Database: I think one overthought, but crucial thing to update is the copy and paste aspect of the game. It is the most frustrating part of track making and needs to have a closer look at in my opinion. I think the best way to go about this is by having a page on FRHD that has all your autosaves. Whenever you create a track it saves every so often, and then when you close out of FRHD you can open up your autosaves. You can also save a file and whenever you update that track you add it to the same file as an updated track. You can share these tracks with other players and you can also make it viewable to others without having them be able to edit it.

    Regardless, y’all need to actually make one of these updates happen, rather than tell us they are going to eventually happen. Even one update might be enough to bring free rider back.

    The FPS toggle is probably the most important, but something like the teleport powerup would be very cool as well. Also, Char maybe you could add 'CR checkpoints' to the poll.

    Personally what I'd love to see that isn't on this list is zero gravity and still some kind of door&key power-up. I still think it would make the game so much cooler if you could have a rider find a closed off path and you'd have to go in a different direction to find a key. Would make so many cool layouts. You could also for example make a loop thats closed off and while you ride through it you grab a key and it would open the loop so you can leave it, stuff like that. There's probably many uses. It would just be a power-up that would remove a line you selected. For anti gravity, this would be extremely cool as well and make fresh gameplay sections. Im generally mostly supportive of stuff that will open up new types of tracks to create so those 2 are things I'd love to see added.

    For what's in the poll, I REALLY want teleporters. Nearly everything you mentioned would be a very sweet update though. The FPS toggle even though no clue how you'd make it work for racing would be nice since the game is way easier in 25 fps. The turrent I'm not sure about. More vehicles I also really would like to see since they add more gameplay options. Well looking through this list I kinda want everything besides maybe more shades of grey or colours. Copy paste and filling are also kinda eh since they change the feel of the game but they would really help me out making tracks faster. A tool that lets you move parts of your track without pasting multiple times would be an obvious update for me though

    e: stuff like deleting tracks or favoriting tracks even though not as 'exiting' should really be added asap. These are functions this game is actually really missing
