Could it be pissible? Would it be possible? To create a log flume that you could ride in treade marks? This game is so modifiable, I don't see the trouble in it!

The answer is no.

Vectors in TM are odd, you can bump into them sideways, but you cant stand on them, you just fall thru, hence, no bridges on maps.

You make a log outa vectors, then ya it would be possible if this bitta code is fixed as you can drive on em. Otherwise sprites are flat, you cant attach a tank to a sprite and you cant separate the camera from the tank.

TM's a great moddable game, but for now at least, there are limits.

The game only handles bounding box collisions and treats them as vehicle-hitting-obsticle. THe collision system would need to be heavily modified to allow for point->polygon collision detection and having it treat collisions in a way that allows for one to drive over objects. To make a log flume, it would need to handle a motionless tank on a moving object.

It would be a neat feature though. One can then force the players to ride a barge to the other side of a body of water.
