Haven't played this in a few weeks due to Tony Hawk. Really do dig the downtown LA and school levels though. Still horrible at grinds. So brainwaashed by THPS and Skate

Got into map making and made my local park. Was thinking of doing a little SF style downhill stretch for my next one cause that right of Streets is the best. Any inspiration for spots to add to it is welcome.

Aha the overalls were a nice touch and added to the vibe.

Thanks dude. Took some crafty color grading. Too bad instagram compresses the shit out of videos and it looks pretty crappy.

I'm getting really bummed out I can do a kickflip out of a nose grind. Or a nollie flip out of a 5oh.

And why is it so hard to do a proper ollie out of back lip on ledges?

This game had the potential to be really cool, but they wanted to make it so realistic that it is too hard and loses dynamic.

Also, the way we view the skater is to close to the him, we lose angle to the place were we going to make the trick.

The mobile phone app game was much better.

Disapointed.

more disappointed the devs pretty much abandoned the game or at least suck at communication. probability that it even gets updated is gonna be low the more the game relies on mods on pc. console players got ripped off imo. they should still sell it for 15 or 20,- imo and left it in early access.

the game is great fun if you are willing to put in the work to mod it out, but fuck the devs, seriously. they've done shit since it went early access. the modding community did 90% of the stuff that makes this game really worth playing. otherwise it would be too frustrating to keep up with it.

agreed on them shorthanding consoles but pc players don't really have to "put in work" to mod. I'm a computer idiot and each new map is literally a click, open, and drop in folder. The mod manager is also idiot proof imo.

The main thing that needs to come to consoles is the stats menu. It would make even the existing console maps work way better since it unlocks obstacles and lines that you would float over before on the console's moon physics.

yeah, i get that it's fairly easy, still, other games let you subscribe to mods simply via steam and then they just show up in game. and it's true that maps, clothes, decks etc. can be simply added via drag and drop. but that doesn't change that you actively have to keep up with the mods and updates and all that. the more complicated the mod economy gets the less incentive the devs will have to fix it up because people will expect that all the mods work.

the stat menu just won't come to consoles unless the devs buy the mod and implement it into the game officially. and rn they seem to be chilling, which is cool, but they could say aight guys, we're taking some time off and then we will come back and work with all the modders on the next update and see how we can polish things up further.

just hoped the game would be way more polished than this, it seems the devs put resources into the wrong things, like mo capping, which didn't have that much impact on how good the animations looked imo. i don't get why the stat menu and camera presets, or a exit game option, music options, aren't part of the final release. there's no excuse imo, especially when you call it a sim. sims usually have all kinds of options to customize experience. i see people saying on steam "bro it's a sim, it doesn't need a music menu or too many options, it's for purists only!" yet everyone plays with tons of mods to customize every aspect of the game. the only people reeking in money are the devs.

my main problem is the devs being scummy by releasing the game and apparently peacing out on the project on the grounds that the community will develop the rest of the game for them while they continue to rake in the money, a good amount of which they rightfully deserve. but imo they should then honor their claim of supporting the game after release or at least work with the modding community to implement the most popular mods and pay these people from the money they made from the release. anyways, if easy day studios abandons this game, they will be a burnt dev anyway. apparently the mobile precursor of skater xl has been abandoned right after release as well.

i guess we will see what happens.

I'm pretty sure the devs are stuck trying to get the switch port to work. They didn't communicate an awful lot while it was in early access, so this isn't surprising. I'm assuming an update will come with or after the switch release, but not before.

yeah alright, but i still think it's wack they didn't learn to communicate. it's just expected from a good dev. imagine dlx acting like that, haha. we'd give them so much shit. the devs need to be held under more scrutiny and not glorified under some false gatekeeping mentality that they made a game for "hardcore real life skaters only" which is what i read a dude say, which made me chuckle hard.

anyways, hope you are actually right.

I don't know... as an independent dev trying to get mods/updates through to companies like Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo I assume they're at the very bottom of those companies' lists of priorities. They have FIFA updates to approve and implement. Or Fortnite. Or Call of Duty. Or any number of high profile games that will make a company like Sony probably one million times the money as a game like Skater XL will make them.

It's a shame that the game doesn't have more content, but I really like to turn on the game, turn on a podcast and just chill for 30 minutes or so.

But that is also the way I approach skating. I don't film often. I don't try a lot of tricks that I will get hurt doing. I honestly skate flatground and curbs 90% of the time. Maybe I'm just a boring skateboarder and I like this boring skateboarding video game.

Modded some polar big boys with the Tiago mesh on a custom character. There's clipping with shirts but I much rather run this than the default pant fit. Easy day get on this.

Canít believe there hasnít been an update, console players truly got fucked. Game had a lot of potential, and still does, but I donít see an update happening in the future.

The devs have said they are currently working on content and there will be an update soon. This team is full of good dudes. They care about the game, their not just gonna drop it.

In the meantime, bask in the glory that is PC:

i dunno man, full on gravity, but a bit more pop. i have my skater pop just as high so i can clear the highest thing i want to skate. still dabbling with it though. grind and manny pop is the same for me and at a about 0.5 i think. i sometimes think the stats are a lil buggy though. and i play with high and low pop, not strictly baby pop. i think sometimes it looks weird when people have pop too low. i like it better to have it float a little bit, just looks better in footage. sometimes the skaters look like they carry weights or something.

max possible speed.

grind pop off straight or to the side depends on what i skate.

i'd like to have manual catch on but need to set my controller up differently i guess. i hate catching with clicking the stick, i find it to be unreliable. most the time manual catch looks like a yo flip, too. i just keep the flip going via holding the flick and then let it autocatch when it's not super perfect so it doesn't look too generic.

tons of stuff i didn't change or dabble with yet. i'm fine where i am at rn. plays good and i can wallie lots of things, doesn't look or play too floaty, reasonable pop height.

In all fairness, what I read was an instagram comment from the dev team. No official announcement for new content. They have been relatively quiet post release but I have faith in them.

I haven't played this in a few weeks, but if they do some updates for console version I will be re-psyched on it. More levels and more customizable options and I'll be good again.

Iíve gotten a lot better and am enjoying myself.

My chief complaint, I want it to be easier to do 180 shuv-it flip tricks, and harder to do the 360 version.

I want to do laser flips, 360 hard flips, and 360 inward heels exactly never.  You should really have to whip it around to do those tricks.

Is there something Iím missing?

100% agree. I'm getting closer to feeling it out but you have to be so delicate to do a big heel or ghetto bird or something similar. I found turning the little stick display on and practicing helped a bit

As annoying as it sounds, it just takes practice to be able to do varial/inward/hard flip/heels easily (instead of the 360 variations).

I'm building a PC right now and being able to play modded Skater XL is one of the things I'm most looking forward to.
