Incoming: Transparent Goalposts

Postby Dirkened on Tue Aug 22, 2017 3:14 pm

We're always adding new features and tech to Rocket League, and our next update this Autumn will use that philosophy to incorporate one of the most requested community features of all time: Transparent Goalposts -- which will drastically change how you see the ball in certain positions on the pitch.

Transparent Goalposts will add transparency to the goals, goalposts, and specific pieces of the Arena wall. More specifically, you will soon be able to see through parts of the Arena that were previously solid structures (depending on your position and camera view). When defending in-goal, for example, the posts and walls around you will become transparent for better vision. The same goes for players who hug Arena walls on offense or defense, because the quarterpipe will be see-through as well!

Whether or not the walls and posts are transparent or opaque depends entirely on your position; so, while someone sitting inside the goal will be able to see through the walls as previously mentioned, players out on the field who might be in the corner near a boost sphere will still see the goal just as they do now -- as a solid object.

We had three goals in mind as we developed Transparent Goalposts. First, we wanted to provide consistent visibility in and around the goal areas for players across all Arenas. Second, we wanted Transparent Goalposts to have a positive effect on each Arena's artwork. In other words, Transparent Goalposts will narrow the visual space needed between the pitch and content outside the walls (crowds, statues, etc), allowing for better looks. Third and finally, we wanted to make it an option you can toggle on or off - although the community’s been asking for this feature for quite some time, we respect the fact that some may prefer things the way they’re accustomed to. It's your choice! Feel free to make it in the Options screen.

Expect to see (or not see, in this case) Transparent Goalposts in every standard Arena when we roll out our Autumn Update. As a compliment to this new feature, we will also be doing another performance pass in those same Arenas so that you can make the most of your new-found visual freedom.

Stay tuned for more information on our next update!

I know it's asking a lot but do you guys have a date range you are looking at for the next update? Kind alike towards the end of X month?

I've never really had a problem with the goalposts.

The lower wall, on the other hand...
Especially in every version of Utopia.

Yah I agree with no one, I hope its not just the goal post but the backboard as well. If you are in goal and a ball rolls up the and you drive out of the net and right away up your backwall you can't see anything, no car no ball. I really hope this is what's fixed
