(First of all, I apologize if this message is sent twice. I clicked "post", but the message did not appear, so I am re-sending it.)
Articles for cars that are present in newer NFS titles generally have a photo of said car driving in the game world from a scenic perspective. An example of what I mean is the header picture for the Lamborghini Countach 5000QV. However, many pages for the cars that only appeared in the classic games - primarily The Need for Speed, Need for Speed: High Stakes and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 - either have low-quality header images, or only have images from showrooms. I was wondering if I could take pictures of those cars racing in the game world similar to the pictures from more recent games, to serve as header images for those cars' articles.
Additionally, I was also curious if I could edit the articles of the tracks from Hot Pursuit 2 to include sections about key landmarks that a player would travel through, as well as pictures of them - example, Island Outskirts would have the median strip, volcanic blows, Pico Village, the Kaluna resort, and the Movie set. If I'm allowed to, how should it be formatted for the page to meet the wiki's quality standards?
You can add whatever images you like, as long as they are towards improving the quality of the page, but that's what you're going for anyway.
The images have to include only the vehicle the article is about and can be in either 4:3 or 16:9 for older games depending on how you're capturing them.
You can also add images with regards to tracks to their respective articles. I don't know why you're asking permission, you can do this anyway. The only reason they're not there now is because no one has taken the time to do what you want to do.
Hey, I've seen your remake of the NFS World map remake in the Tri Cities wikia page and I must say it looks very good! Strikingly similar to the original. I've also seen in your gallery the amazing 3D work you've done as well, very impressive!
Anyways, I don't know if you've heard of NFS Toolkit, but I'll summarize it shortly. Basically it's a tool that allows you to convert maps from Blackbox NFS games that use EAGL between one another, and it allows an external .obj to be used as well, for example, if you want to make a custom map all together or add something to the existing map. It's not out yet though.
This is where I come in (or if you want to join, you as well), NFS World supports this tool which means it is possible to pretty much extend the existing map in NFS World, like unlocking the Rockport Turnpike, adding Tri-Cities, and maybe even finally unlocking the Palmont to Rockport connecting roads.
Not to forget that, I'm not talking about the NFS World Offline version only, I'm talking about the NFS World that is also multiplayer, thanks to the Soap Box Race World Launcher, and it's community.
I'm not a professional in 3D Modelling, although I do have the knowledge to do so, especially in 3ds Max, and I know how to use Photoshop as well.
You seem to be skilled in 3D Modelling and Photoshop too, so I was thinking, maybe we can team up and you know, once NFS Toolkit comes out, we could do what I mentioned earlier in NFS World. I don't know you personally, maybe it's also something you're interested in.
Anyways, wether you're interested or not, I would like to hear a response. Have a nice day!
seriously dude, the fuck!? whats wrong with my titles, I'm following your fucking manual of style. NFS-<<<the car>>>.jpg whats wrong with that??? thats exactly what it says it should be!! and whats with deleting my 'Torino 1969' entry from the Ford page....the Torino is a Ford, and was in the movie. tell me what I need to fix, and I'll do it, don't just delete it.
LeMansRacer I've notice that there is a big clean up on the pages on this site and was wondering whether you required help sorting it out.
-The page I was looking at was the "cars sorted by engine configuration"
The big cleanup, which has been an ongoing process for a few months, is to removed "engine powered cars" categories from car articles. Just like the categories I've removed for your contributions on multiple occasions.
