The only difference is that the distance numbering starts now at 80 meters instead of 110 meters.

Is it possible to add camera platforms (or to mark it somehow) on other hills? Then, players could place there camera and watch replays as in TV. Now, they can do it too, but it's not easy to find an accurate place.

Landing is too easy now... It should be a little bit difficult, but easier than in the previous versions :)

I agree. The jumper holds telemark at all costs which caused excessive falling in the previous versions due to lack of balancing power, and now the power is a bit over the top. Best fix would be the jumper giving up a badly balanced telemark in order to save the jump, but I imagine that's difficult to program at this stage.

I think it would be problematic to make the landing harder again, because all the new records would have be annulled.
Maybe the landing is a little easy now, but it's certainly better than before in my opinion. Statistically it's much more accurate now, how often do you see jumpers falling in real competitions? Maybe one or two per competition max, which is pretty much the case now. Not like a third of all jumpers as in Kulm in verion 1.2 :mrgreen: . But I do like Risto's idea.
