@Dreadnaut@Afullo Oh, really! This seems to be a map of this town. Btw, this is not far away (~50-60 km) from one of our (Kahdra, /me) 2019 summer holiday locations, Sistiana, Italy (2 nights spent there, coming from Slovenia, going to Austria then). Another useless fact: on one of our (Kahdra, /me) first rendezvouses (August 2012), in a restaurant, I had a pizza which had a fantasy name 'Lignano'.
Happy birthday Mr. CTG!
ahter time now tere have to pay park 1E hour!
@Akoss Poo: nice! I had been in Sistiana (Portopiccolo) during summer 2015, but just for one day, we were based on Trieste. - @Stan: does the fee is 0.90 for one hour, 8.00 for the whole day? Or at least there were 2020 prices, maybe they got inflated a bit...
Public days end so early nowadays
@dreadnaut & @Alan Rotoi: thank you!
Due to some expected, but still painful changes in my private life / career, I'm a bit sick of time consuming hobbies and addictions at the moment. These days, playing Stunts is not fun for me at all. I can't really find motivation to prepare decent laps. Not even a mediorce one. Previously, I always lost motivation because of Stunts scandals and my own stupid behaviour. Now it's something different, because we don't have any flamewars or other stupid brawls, but still, it's gone. Maybe the mid-life crisis...
About public days: although I don't really care, whether public period is 0, 2, 7 or 15 days long, I think changing rules during the competition is not a lucky choice. However, the one who wants to win the title or be on the podium must be VERY FAST, no matter what the rules are.
One thing...a lot of you are very fast. And whatevever all the training I can do, I won't enough fast. It is a disapointed to fight to be 6th or 9th. What about an pro championship and amateur championship ? Look the newbies League, it's only a duel between Kilie and Zapper....
Join a team. As far as I remember you can exchange replays and tips. You can also watch public replays of the month or replays from other months to figure out how to race some elements or situations.
Why the GTO has never a good bonus ?
I was going to say "Because the GTO is a power gear car. When the GTO is fast on a track, it's reaaaaally fast." But it seems like that actually hasn't really happened for a few years now. I guess we just all like giving it penalty seconds. The issue should be fixed now though, penalty seconds are temporary this season, so the GTO is going to rise up eventually, slooooowly, aaaany day now.
@CTG: sorry to hear that. I am sure you will keep appearing every now and then and throwing a few surprises our way though, you always seem to end up doing that.
Top 6 with different cars!! O_O. Also 10 racers and 7 different cars! :O
Ok I give up
Hiába erősködtök, Anál Rötöj mindenkit megbasz, ha akar! :-)
@Alan Rotoi is the fastest so far, with many days to reach the finish line. Hang on Alan!
@Akoss Poo, mutasd meg, hogyan futsz ezen a pályán
Hogy milyen igaz!
@GTAMan15 you are back?!!! Cool!!!
@Ryoma I'm taking long breaks from my favorite games, and sometimes also from my favorite songs, playing cards, now I'm playing mostly with Fidget Spinners
LOL... Poo said "it's useless to insist, Anal Rotoi will f*ck you all - if he wants to."
The Ferrari 312 T4 is out now. 25 Ferrari for Stunts !!!!
Wow @Ryoma, you are unstoppable Now we need someone to drive and review them all!
I like the comments and reviews from @Marco
Happy Birthday, Krys TOFF! And happy Day of Friendship, everybody! I think it's not known as such in most countries, but why not share it?
Happy Töffday, Krys BÖFF!!!
CTG consumed a huge amount of home made pálinka (52% alcohol, but feels stronger than any 80+ % absinth, JTK can tell you... ). In Hungarian, we call it "kerítésszaggató" (fence breaker).
Lancia Ferrari D50 is (re)born !!! 2 constructors for one car.
Is it the 7th Lancia or the 26th Ferrari ?
I'm going to do another "I've got RSI so I'm sticking to one attempt" hidden time tonight, so if you're in the subtop you've still got a few hours to defend that position. Coming months won't see a lot of activity from me either, but I will be putting the final touches on the track for the month after that. EDIT: Also, I had completely missed that the public days had been shortened.
*coming month, no s. Let's not complain that far ahead.
Quiet replays published! 🎉
Congratulations to @Alan, @Zapper and @Duplode! There is still one day left for the current race over at Race For Kicks!
Wow, a powergear line. I did not see that coming. First time in a long time the Ferrari wins, and how. Congrats Alan!
30 sec oO.... Bye guys
Rules need to be modify. Look the number of newbies that never come back. I say again that an amateur and pro League will be a good thing. I'm here to try to progress...but finish far as it....it's not a competition.
Ryo it's very hard to follow you with all these cars . It would be great that in you folder you can share also all the other cars done by the community and maybe also the ingame default so to have a full cars folder . At the same time, because of the 32 cars limit (well , is it not possibile to removed this limitation ) , could be good to divide the cars for type or speed. On my pc i have already done that with Classic (Delta, audi , etc.) , Exotic (Lmaborghini, Ferrari, porsche , etc ) and FAST (F1 , indycar, etc.) . The problem is that we have a lot of cars
Well my friends, it's a lot of time that i don't come here ... I'm playing with 4d sports driving since I noticed the turn bug on Stunts that's not acceptable for me... are there news about the improving of 4d sports driving, I mean the 10 minutes limit . Sometime ago someone did something to solve it but it was not working , after 10 minutes the freeze occured anyway. There' s another thing i want to ask to your sensibility ... it seems to me that 4d sports driving run with less fps (frame per second) than stunts. It seems to me that is a little more lagging , am i wrong ? Thank you
Hi @Marco, it's hard for me toi to follow myself lol. In my PC, I made 6 directories : Ferrari, Supercar, GT, Racing, Street and Italia (no Ferrari here).
I do not know how to manage the mega link. It's true that when I modify a car, I forget to announce it... apologies.
Maybe, I can put all the files in one directory. And thanks to Duplode SCS, you can manage it.
Thank you @Kylie ! I want to specially congratulate to @Zapper for his first podium!
Congratulations @Alan and @Zapper! As far as bonuses go, this result could shake up the car mix quite a bit. @Marco and @Ryoma: by the way, once I step up my activity and reengage with my Stunts side projects, there are several new and updated cars I'll have to upload to Southern Cross; also, as some have already pointed out, that car downloads page does need some extra organisation to make it easier to navigate...
Scoreboard confirmed, congratulations to @Zapper 🥉, @Duplode 🥈 and @AlanRotoi 🏆 — The winning lap is an impressive powergear feat!
And the new track is up: @CTG bring us a tight dual-way track. Is it for slow cars, or fast ones? Only one way to know!
This looks fun!
Great track @CTG!
Does the LTB counter counts from the last time uploaded? So if sombody beats his own time it starts counting again not from his previous replay. It "deletes" those minutes collected.
Yes... It's a bug, or at least unwanted behaviour. For consistency I'll leave it as it is until the end of the season, but I'd like to fix it. 🔨 As it is now, it's better to not send many small improvements. But then one might lose the first position because of that, giving an advantage to the leading pipsqueak that keeps refreshing the page, ready to recover their position — I don't think that's a behaviour that I want to incentivise.
Sorry I really don't like this track
Anyway, I definitely give up
@Ryoma, I understand that the style of racing at ZakStunts can be frustrating for a newbie if you have never played Stunts that way before. Why not come and join us at www.raceforkicks.com? It might be more to your liking. The next race starts on 1/8/2021.
@kylie no it's dead I don't want to be humiliated at each race. I stop.
It's an old game but there are a lot of things to learn about trick, track elements and the cars behaviour. The loop trick is not new. For this track I used the same trick in #ZCT47. Same trick same car.
It's impossible to take all in mind. Sooner or later you always forget how to make a trick or a jump faster. Anyway I agree about thinking in a system to make a dual league or something like that. We should talk about it in the forum.
There is a dual League but Zapper and Kylie are too fast... impossible to finish better than 3rd. Look the number of pilots who try one time and never Seen again.
Ryoma, some pipsqueaks race only once maybe because they are old players and they want to try Stunts again in a sort of amarcord, but then they switch again to other games. This is not necessarily related with placing in the lower part of the standings.
Yes maybe. In fact, now, it's not my problem...
@Ryoma, you've completed a total of four races, with quite good laps as well—in ZCT238 you finished second in front of Zapper. Two things to consider: with such a small sample, it's difficult to tell how "good" or "bad" you are, as tracks and cars can make a lot of difference; second, do you think is a reasonable expectation to join any competition with 24-25 participants, and within four month to be close or on the podium? Are you setting the bar too high for yourself here, not considering that there is a learning process in everything?
I think a way to have a competition more geared towards beginners or those who have problems with advanced techniques (like me) would be something GAR style with the possibility of replay handling. Without shortcuts and tricks, competition is more accessible and disputed. But it's just an idea that crossed my mind...
@Ryoma : just check my early Stunts career, it wasn't really successful. You have to be more patient to yourself.
@CTG Sorry but I stop really. I prefer spent time in making car instead of loosing time in something I can not improve. I expected to improve in newbies league...but it's not possible and my skill will never increase.
I was going to make a point about how you're doing similar or better than I was in my first season here, and then be a little snarky about no possibilities for improvement, maybe make some comforting comparisons with other games and e-sports (and maybe a bit about how you should just do what makes you happy even if that isn't racing), but now I'm just wondering what the skid happened in ZCT099. I even still have the .zip archive of the next race with the replays in them, but mine isn't there. I think I may have found a bug here. Nobody fix it, this must qualify me for some sort of a record. EDIT: In the comment section at the time I placed "Oops. I thought 'dd get a quick one in on the last day, I just forgot the deadline isn't the end of the day." So it looks like the key to incredible mysterious times is to try and post a replay between races.
@Ryoma: it's up to you. I know how you feel about the competition. And I'm pretty sure that sooner or later you will come back and race again.
@ctg never with these rules
@Ryoma - what is your expectation about rules and opponents for you to be happy?
It's time to consider using fast cars instead of Toyota.
@CTG are you suggesting the training of "Point and Shoot" cars ?
If you want to be high on the scoreboard, you have to know all the cars. Slow and fast, boring and tricky, ugly and nice. (I'm drunk... )
but no stomach gas sound, strange, isn't it?
And were is Maserati Biturbo?
I made the Maserati Shamal the most powerfull of the biturbo family
