  • Visual
    1. Snowboard Bindings missing from Urban Outfits
    2. When taking a screenshot in Photo Mode, breaks ambient/Time of Day options in Replay/Game mode.
    3. Remove non-grouped players from replays - disrupts replays for content creators and enjoyable moments.
    4. Remove non-grouped player's markers - disrupts current rider's experience.

  • Gameplay
    1. Bouncing into the sky from halfpipe Japan snowparks. Similar to Rail bounce bug.
    2. Hit Detection
      • Should be able to "brush" by bushes and small branches - added to G-Force meter
      • Magnetic rocks - rock faces or jumps pull the player upwards or backwards
      • Rail Super Jump - Randomly but recreatable - players are shot up into the air at exponential rate while near or on grindable objects.
    3. Mutails and Holycrails not registering on small jumps
  • Leaderboards
    1. Due to updated physics & fixes there are glitches scores for All Time records.
    2. Wrong Way glitched records
  • Audio
    1. When grouped then in PhotoMode others become muted to you, but party members can still hear you.
  • Other
    1. Maximum Number of Lines - I still see this error, but nothing seems to come of it as it did in the past.

    6. Duplicate Time of Day menu between Photo and Replay mode
    7. Animals - we hear them, don't see them. We don't need interaction with them, but watching a bird sit on a tree and fly off before we come crashing down would be cool.

    6. Have more than 1 "Active" dare - Currently you can only "Dare" one of your challenges to your friends. Why not all, or a few?

    8. Chat Room - Ability to type - find riders, share coordinates
    9. More riders on screen at once - Currently limited to 4 riders including grouped members, please expand to allow to see many connections at once to give a more "active" feel.

    12. Ability to remove challenge starting points with HUD active
  • Gameplay Updates
    1. Seamlessly switch sports while riding (Ski - jump off cliff into BASE, parachute into paraglide or speed ski)
    2. Duplicate grind feature across all Massifs to perform the same (update Alps objects)
    3. Turn off DLC(s) - Ability to turn off WinterFest, XGames as it can disrupt free roam & content creation.

      • GoPro when hiking
    10. Avalanches - **Many may not know the death of Matilda Rapaport during the research of this project. We assume Ubisoft is paying their respects by keeping avalanches out of Steep. I respect this decision, but do also see the thrill it would give 'virtually' for players. R.I.P.
    11. Speed Ski - Update wing control to R1/L1 instead of one joystick.
    12. BASE - Ariel tricks and running start
    13. Pump - Ability to pump while on ski or board to move forward with momentum, help with traversing and small inclines.
    14. Ski/Board physics and specs - Skis that are designed for fast riding should be faster at accelerating vs a board designed for tricks or deep snow.
  • Massif Updates
    1. More Snow Parks or added features - Add more towns to each Massif with grindable features.
    2. Map Editing - Ability to use shovel gadget to build custom ramps, fixtures, etc.
    3. Map Editor - New Massif or ability to alter current region and save into our own.
    4. Map Creator - Our own Massif that we can create and share. Give us tools for everything we would need - preset mountain ranges to choose from, different types of ramps, objects to place, scenery such as types of trees, cabins, potties, cars, and grindable objects all along with a grid system for easy use.
    5. Free roam Korea
    6. Licensed parks and resorts - A Massif full of world known parks and resorts with replica design. Example: Whistler, Mt. Baker, Breckenridge
  • Tricking
    1. Add a dominant stance and implement switch riding. This will easily double variations of tricks.
    2. Point system overhaul - Lot of complaints of repeat tricks and glitches for leaderboard competitions.
