Oh sure, it’s pure speculation. But I’m expecting something not a million miles away from that - not location-accurate scenery, auto-generated but not just a plain wasteland.
I meant segment as in a random sections of road. That you want to analyze.
Why would you want to analyse a section that traverses a couple of different worlds, when you’ve probably been soft pedalling while the new world loads or some other thing that means it’s not a sustained effort?
It just seems like dreaming up obstacles that aren’t likely to be an issue in reality.
The intent of the coffee stop is to not lose the riders you’re riding with. The intent is not to purposely give you 3 free minutes of xp or distance. If who you’re riding with leaves the game, or you yourself are quitting, then there’s no loss anyway. I assume if you’re on break and the other rider leaves, you’ll just coast to a stop on the side of the road.
What’s going on with clothes changing colors while running? Is it normal?
To be precise - it was a joke
That is what I would expect as well. Just hope it is more interesting than RGT’s Magic Roads scenery is.
SIgned up to RGT Just to try it, and the GPS thing worked really well … I used a route I have ridden a lot and know really well and it was definitely accurate to how it feels in real life. It was just really boring to look at on screen while riding it.
Can definitely see the benefit of the Magic Roads thing if you are entered in an event on unfamiliar roads and want to get a feel for it, beyond that I personally don’t see the attraction.
Man, that is very cool.
I really hope it’s a step up from the current world design.
That demo really demonstrates how we’ve all got comfortable with very basic world design. It must be a complex problem though, as Zwift is expected to run on phones, potatoes, pretty much every device.
I really like the idea of the new, gps realistic roads with the portals. That’s one thing I like is new Zwifty roads. Some ideas for future climb portals could be Haleakala and Mauna Kea in Hawaii. That would be EPIC!
You saying it really makes me want to see a real one… I don’t know how the heck it would happen, but it would be kind of satisfying, in a way.
The scenery is top notch
You will feel like you are really there!
I don’t know why anyone would object to that map. It’s a work of art.
do people really look at the maps of zwift rides? if so what are they looking for?
I do. They are very satisfying! After being on Zwift long enough, you can tell where a person went just by looking at the map or the shape of the map.
Plus, I’ve been converting gpx files so I can 3d print all the Zwift worlds. That’s similar, I guess.
