Sweet I can have a War Rig and exclusively drive around Mars yelling SHINY AND CHROME.

I like the smog in Union City too. Are the buildings in it colored at all?

They're all whiteboxed (Placeholders), we will be replacing them with actual assets as we move further down development, but all those maps are playable :)

I am happy Tod has been giving his rightful place among Gods.

Aurora looks so beautiful. Great progress so far.

A few things. Earth needs to have a proper Senate and Court, the design of these structure also need to be well thought out so that we have multiple gates/barriers between Senate hall and the entry point so that CPC/TDC may deploy security. Same goes for court.

Also Prison on moon please.

Union City will be split into five sections, each their own world – Union City Lower District, Union City Upper District, Union City Leisure District, Union City Industrial District and Union City Council Quarter.

Council Quarter being the Union Council, of course.

I'm beyond excited for MR, excellent work you guys.

What sorts of things will we be able to do on the larger worlds like Aurora and Mars? And can we beef halfclip people with our cars?

Hey there, thanks!

At this point in time, it's too early to tell. While we have implemented the system, it's all still very bareboned. The plan, however, is to let the player decide. Meaning, yes, you could potentially run over and kill people but the downside would be the repercussions of that player, or faction even, and the costs tied to spawning another vehicle, which is going to be pretty expensive.

At the moment, only transport vehicles are planned, which are going to be relatively vulnerable.

One suggestion I'd like to make, perhaps in order to provide exploration incentive, there can be dangerous PvE/PvP elements around "towers" or "control centers" that progressively reveal certain parts of your map vision if it's your first time exploring these larger maps.

You must successfully gank 10 people on a map to unlock map vision

cheers for the update lots of information alsofrom all streams great communication.

Also when you were talking about Asset Gallery for Creating Levels and showing the images all I could think about is the matrix when Neo says 'Guns lots of Guns'
