    Right, ZCT231 or 232 is a jubilee track.
  • afullo
    For the 25th anniversary of Stunts we tried to ask Kevin Pickell for the creation of a track, eventually he designed ZCT200 a couple of years later.
  • Cas
    ZCT232 could make a reference to RS-232 ports, which were very common in PCs in the times of Stunts (yeah, I'm a nerd, I know). Still, COM1 and COM2 serial ports (that used the RS-232 standard) were used either for mice or null-modem cables mostly, in 1990. Stunts lacked serial gaming capabilities and driving with the mouse is really a terrible experience! So maybe this idea doesn't make much sense anyway XD -- Oh, and Happy New Year, guys!
  • afullo
    Cas, why did you change your national flag? Was that for disliking domestic politics?

    @afullo - I had to ask to change it. There isn't the option. I changed it because I'll be moving abroad and yes, also, because of discontent. I don't like the idea of freely advertising the ruling faction. And I thought, if the entire focus of a country can change from night to day, what's the point in identifying myself with its flag? What does a flag mean of something that can change all the time? So... yes :tongue: I no longer consider myself Argentine. I'm just a world person that happens to have been born here, that's it. I've had this idea for long. Recent events just completed the process of adopting this view. Thanks, @GTAMan! I know it's nerdy, but well :tongue:

    New season, new cars, new track. Here we go! :cheesy:
  • The new season is here

    Hello everyone, sorry for the delay, and for disappearing for most of the holidays. I was busy travelling, looking at water coming through the ceiling in the living room, etc. The usual Christmas stuff :)

    Anyway, the first track of the 20th ZakStunts season is ready! We start with ZCT222, "Defensive Driving" by Overdrijf. (Thanks for preparing the track pal!)

    The usual car rotation sees the Ford Ranger and the BMW M3 leave the tracks, replaced by two new entries: the Mercedes-Benz 190, also from OverDrijf's DTM pack, and the Toyota Sprinter Trueno, an older custom car created by Zapper. You can grab the car files from the download section.

    Rules are unchanged from last year, but I will update the LTB code to remove various bugs, and possibly carry unused LTB hours to the next month. So go and steal that first place now!

  • Stan 286XT
    Hello Cherry Chassis!!!!! Finally YOU!!! How beutifoul youare I prefere you in EGA grafik! You are like a Top model!!!!
  • Cas
    New season! :smiley: Already got the track. Soon to upload a replay. Hey, the Trueno doesn't still have an image to show on the scoreboard. I'll get that car too.
  • Overdrijf
    I can fix images for the new cars. I still know roughly how I did it last year and that went pretty well. Edit: In fact, I think I already have the Mercedes, did it just to have the complete set. :wink: (Also I asked Dreadnaut to not make any changes like extra slaloms in the last 2/3 of the track, so he went ahead and mirrored the whole thing instead, and then turned it 90 degrees for good measure. Evil, evil bastard...)

  • Overdrijf
    For the first drive of the season I was going to go with the F40, but I managed to not notice I had selected the wrong Ferrari until I was quite some ways in...

    :-( tere are people usually drink cheap whisky no good cheap whisky and have same blood in the stomach and is not the top don't drink whisky :sad:
  • afullo
    As a Friulian, you should know how to drink *qualitatively*, not *quantitatively*. My father is also from the province of Pordenone (assuming that it does still exist - the region FVG messed up things by creating the UTIs), and he knows what a good wine or liquor is...

  • Alan Rotoi
    No Melange? :sad:
  • dreadnaut
    I didn't think about it :sad: I suppose I kept the F40 because last year it was never used. Melange next season for sure!

Jan 17

  • dreadnaut
    Don't leave me at the top of the scoreboard just as I'm devising an easier way to get LTB points!

Jan 18

  • Cas
    Five different cars on the scoreboard! I feel obliged to introduce a sixth, ha, ha. I'll do it when I finish today's work in a moment. And yeah, I'll miss the Melange this season too.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    I miss you, Melange!

    Honestly I feel like the Trueno may have come in at too low a bonus. I'll quote myself from the thread the car was originally introduced in: "What I don't like is being overtaken by Skid in an LM02". I'm probably not doing the car justice by that in several ways, but I don't really see it coming into play at a bonus below at least 20% or so, probably higher, based on Leo's results as well. (Although this car is about controlled sliding, so seeing it on a bendy track would give a better indication.) Maybe see if we can patch that number up a little next month?

  • Stingray86
    Stingray is back from his summer holiday! In none other than the Vette! Which is again slow in this game haha. I agree the Trueno is too slow but what do you expect from 185 wide tires. The ZR-1 has 315 wide on the rear but still also looses traction!
    Vette 2:33.18
