Wow, some really nice designs! And that hubless bike looks awesome :lol:

Maybe I'll have a go at making something later.

here's ed's last of his first run attempt
a rather brave vision

he's been in contact and has produced something along the lines others have outlined here
and i believe he's producing a map for people to use too
hope he posts it up soon :)

Hehe, just love'em :D

Btw, is it possible in current versions to have different cycle model than opponents?

I'm no artist, but this is just my idea for a type of one-wheeled light cycle. Basically it has an ordinary wheel on the front with a space for the driver to sit on,
and on the back it will have a flat fin extending down to the floor which the jet wall will come out of.

Had some time to kill earlier today, made a quick and dirty rapid prototype of jolts bike textured with the drawing itself.

Wow, if I had known you would have liked my cycle so much I would've made my sketch much more finalized. I guess I'll get to work.
Any chance you could send me the files? :wink:

Edit: I just finished the final design for my cycle.

This is a picture of what I imagine it looking like in-game, along with a (terribly drawn) top-down view so people can get a better idea of how the "fins" will
connect to the jet wall.

ed hasn't stepped in to front his own designs
he's still in contact and producing versions
and interestingly
looks like he's taken a player's design as inspiration
and i believe he's producing a model to play with

this is the most normal by far...

btw
i like the needle-in-the-groove-style bike in the last couple of posts

Lol, that is an awesome bike!
Cosmic Dolphin happens to be one stupid over-active player that deserves less recognition as it is!
