    Cool turboduck Y U NO... ?

    As I am working away hard on the next look of the by myself on my lonesome, trapped in a hell I cannot escape it occurred to me that my mind is turning into spaghetti thinking of how to approach this place in the future in how it's structured and laid out. So I'm going to ask you muppets for your thoughts, suggestions, ideas etc and see what works and what will need to be put away till the year 2019.

    Main areas of interest:

    * How would you like to see the dedicated game forums laid out?
    * How would you like to see the Mod Shop laid out?
    * Would you like us to expand the Mod Shop to other titles?
    * Is there anything you would like us to do (within reason) to make your stay more pleasant?
    * ...


    We ARE glistening so get those thoughts and crosses in while we're alert!
    I'm a bit mental.

    I'd vote for expanding the mod shop to more titles, I just hope that won't let the amount of dead links blow through the roof but ok that is hard to prevent really. There are more driving and racing games out there, maybe we got people here who also mod other games than just TDU.

    We'd probably open up a forum for posting of other titles and then those that get more popular (if any) will be given their own dedicated subs in the Mod Shop.

    As for the DEAD links we have an idea of having a Scrapyard where we would dump all those links and outdated threads.

    Dunno about expanding the mod shop section. I do t know about any other games that are modded as much as TDU beside GTR, ETS, rFactor and AC, and those have already got their well established websites and forums. Maybe The Crew if it proves to be open to the mod community?

    Yeah you have a point your 'there are already established places' but at the same time there are modders here who may want to break into those titles and more variety all round is always a good thing right?! Also if it doesn't work then we scrap it, no harm no foul really.

    Maybe a 'Cruising Central' forum that groups TDU1, TDU2, FH 1/2, and The Crew. We'll probably need platform-subforums for TC when it releases to handle cruises, etc.

    Other generic titles that are no longer widely 'hot' such as FM5 and GT6 could potentially be stored in the generic Driving/Racing Games forum. A new 'Photo Archive' subforum could potentially house all the old Photomode subforums from old games.

    This is all a bit #bluesky but it may kick off some other idea-making process in your head.

    ^I like Ryan's idea. A place where you can post "hey, I'm playing tag on Forza/cruising in TC/whatever right now, come join me" and then people who are interested would have one place to look if someone was playing something

    These are the sorts of brain things I'm looking for. Keep 'em coming.

    Also about the main areas of interest:

    * How would you like to see the dedicated game forums laid out?
    I'd say the current system is allright, maybe ditch the game-specific subforums and just keep them sorted by the franchise.

    * How would you like to see the Mod Shop laid out?
    Just a silly idea but something like the tduck homepage could work, then it could be kept pretty clean even if it was extended to several other titles. Otherwise I'd say TDU/TDU2 mod shop due to their popularity, then some more with some generalization, maybe a subforum for skin modding, sound modding, track modding, vehicle mods etc, with maybe (sortable?) prefixes to separate the games.

    * Would you like us to expand the Mod Shop to other titles?
    Yes. It could definitely work, it's just up to the people, whether they can keep it alive.

    * Is there anything you would like us to do (within reason) to make your stay more pleasant?
    I'm happy as it is Maybe some community contests or events? (Something like DGSoTW or our Forza Playtimes back in the day, only more official with maybe some promotion on the forums?) Though I know first-hand how hard it is to get people excited about them

    Just some ideas, I doubt I'd come up with any of this if it wasn't 3AM

    Ditching and keeping to franchise is something that sounds good in theory but never works in practice. It sounds all sensible until you have a new game come out and then its threads get mixed in with the older games.

    How do you mean by the homepage?

    More contests are in the sink for the future for sure!

    I don't know, maybe some kind of prefixes could sort the problem you were talking about? And by the homepage I mean a part of the website that is separated from the forums but like I said, that's just a silly idea

    Maybe separate the mod shop section from the main forum, it's a different world out there.

    I totally agree with CLR-GTR, I actually mod a different game than TDU, and maybe some other guys here make mods for other games too, who knows new Mod sections for other games would be nice!

    Silly or not, all suggestions are welcomed.

    In what way. Do you mean like hide them in their own section but not publicly displayed on the main forum home?

    It's alright saying this but it depends on if it's taken up and popular enough to warrant its own area.

    Good to get all this feedback though guys, keep any and all coming you can think of.

    Also where I am also looking for insight is in the Photomode/Media areas for titles; how do you feel they should be approached? Thanks.

    I think the photomode sections are fine.

    But that's the only way that Milli would win something in here. I still remember those TDUCk awards...

    Okay okay...

    Potential long paragraph incoming so I'll try to whittle it down:

    * How would you like to see the dedicated game forums laid out?
    I think it's mostly good as it is - perhaps pile all the driving and racing games into one and put them under one whole gaming subforum. Sort them by genre?

    * How would you like to see the Mod Shop laid out?
    I like how it is, but I agree we should try to expand a bit to get more people in and welcome more games into the modding community

    * Would you like us to expand the Mod Shop to other titles?
    What did I just say..

    * Is there anything you would like us to do (within reason) to make your stay more pleasant?
    Build me a throne made out of brown sugar and goat livers.

    Also where I am also looking for insight is in the Photomode/Media areas for titles; how do you feel they should be approached?
    I think we should have a separate photomode area in general for games, instead of a subforum on the game itself. Then we could make a subforum for each game? Just an idea, that way we can all go and appreciate media and not have to go find the game forum to see the screenies? Sounds like a lot more work though idk x.x
