General THPS(X) / THPS4 V THPS5 What we know so far.
« on: May 07, 2015, 04:26:42 PM »
Released Fall 2002
   Public Lobby Infrastructure
   Host your own 8 player room
   Name your room
   Password your room
   Choose any online name/ Clan tag you desire
   Freeskate  (Not a Game Mode. It?s where you hang out with friends until you decide what to play/do.)
   Public Text Chat
   Set/Go-to skater restarts
   Edit tricks menu
   Observe mode
   First Come First Serve Mode
   Kick/Ban players from room
   Collisions - off by default, can turn on
Skating Mechanics:
   Ollies, Manuals, Grinds
   Spine Transfers
   Drop downs
   Boneless/No Comply
   Special Meter builds up with consecutive tricks and stays maxed until you bail or a game is started/ended. This maximizes scoring potential.
Game Modes:
   Trick Attack
   Combo Mambo
   Score Challenge
   Goal Attack
   King of the Hill
   Capture the Flag
Levels: 9 total
   San Francisco
Create-a -Skater:
   Create your own skater. Hundreds of skater items/combinations (Hats, shirts, pants, shoes, decks, colors..)
   Edit tricks (edit ANY trick mapping. Regular defaults to Special tricks)
   Create your own parks and share with friends

Releasing Fall? 2015
   Matchmaking infrastructure with Instances (can ?turn off?)
   Players per instance - unknown
   Name your instance ? unknown
   Password instance - unknown
   Any name/Clan tag - unknown
   If like THPSHD, Freeskate is a Game mode and not the default starting point when joining rooms.
   Public Chat - unknown/not decided
   Taunts - unknown
   Set/Go-to skater restarts - unknown
   Edit tricks menu ? not in the current build, you have to use ?style cards?
   First Come First Serve mode - unknown
   Kick/Ban players from instance ? unknown
   Collisions ? On by default and cannot be turned off
   You can have ?premade parties? and chat with each other (voice?text?).
   Local multiplayer ? unknown/not decided

Skating Mechanics:
   Ollies, Grinds, Manuals
   Reverts - unknown
   Spine transfers - unknown
   Drop downs - unknown
   Wallride/Wallplant/Wallieplant - unknown
   Boneless/No Comply - unknown
   Quickturn/Power Slide - unknown
   1 or 2 Stackable,  Level-specific Power-ups (Grinding certain power lines give a speed boost in one level.  Another gives you more ?Ramming power?)
?Grind Slamming? Force grinds to start immediately rather than ?floating up and landing in the middle of a rail or overshooting it?
Special Meter builds up with consecutive tricks and is ?Banked? until you activate it with the left bumper. The special meter then decays over time until it runs out. In THPSHD, you could not re-get Special mid-combo.  This hinders scoring potential.
Points system for skater stats and unlocking levels

Game Modes:
   Freeskate ? sounds like THPS4s version of Goal Attack.
   Big Head mode from THPSHD
   ?Hitting targets with dodgeballs?
