    Happy birthday @Seeker1982! And that's very pretty, @Ryoma, both car and dashboard!
  • Ryoma
    @Duplode thanks almost finish skidmc41.png
  • Duplode
    Phew, that was close! A really late definition of the LTB point! Cheesy

    Whoa mama. @Ryoma you have created another masterpiece. This beast has crazy speed like your LC1 and LC2, and very stable. With this, the Veyron and @Alan Rotoi's A-70, we have a collection of digital dashboard rocketships! Cheesy

  • Spoonboy
    It also looks amazing. Don't know how you've managed such a complex body shape with such a low poly limit.
  • Ryoma
    Thanks @Spoonboy. It took me about one year for the shape. First, I collect the vertices with Excel for the rear. I create an .OBJ that I import and after I simplify. And I finish the front. It's a different process comparing to my previous cars.

    Why quiet replays and not replayshhh?
  • Overdrijf
    Not a contender this month. I had some plans for a fence sliding full powergear Indy lap, but it turned out to be both unconpetitive and impractical, unless someone figures out a good skip for the illusion-chicane at least. Wait, did someone figure out one of those? 25 minutes until we know!

    A 1:05 lap... Oooopss! Time's Up . . . . . . . Just Kidding!

  • Mortimer McMire
    Congrats to @Argammon (overall) and @MarkNailwood (Amateur League) for taking the top spots! On a personal note, I'm glad I was somewhat competitive in the mid-field for the first time :-) (although I'm painfully aware that some of the Big Dogs weren't all that active this race)!
  • Erik Barros
    Congratulations @Argammon @Duplode and @MarkNailwood. also to @Spoonboy and @MortimerMcMire
  • Argammon
    Thanks, congratulations @Duplode, @MarkNailwood and @Spoonboy. Mark's result is remarkable. When was the last time a racer with automatic transmission achieved a podium spot? That must be a long time ago! Smiley
  • Alan Rotoi
    Congrats guys! Also congrats to amateur league podium! Special congrats to @MarkNailwood. Can you imagine what this man can do with manual transmission? He's driving literally with one hand! Cheesy

May 6

  • Mark Nailwood
    Thanks for the congrats! I really put some effort into this race Smiley. Yes, @AlanRotoi, I'm driving with one hand - and the other one on the Esc key Wink. In this race, especially when trying to pass the loop, which took me at least half an hour each time to succeed. Of course, I've also tried to drive manual a few times in some races, but I was always significantly slower than with auto transmission. I think with my driving style it will only make sense to choose manual when it's needed to get into Powergear very early and then continue like this until the end of the race Roll Eyes.
  • Duplode
    What a way to enter the 2024 scoreboard -- congratulations @Argammon! Great race and results as well for everyone in the Amateur League podium: @MarkNailwood (overall podium!), @Spoonboy (another top 5!) and @MortimerMcMire (9th in the third race!).
  • Frieshansen
    Congrats to @Argammon (that came as a surprise to me) @Duplode, @MarkNailwood (third with automatic - impressive), @Spoonboy and @MortimerMcMire!
  • dreadnaut
    Hey folks! Didn't feel great yesterday, and didn't have time to delegate the track update either. New track will be up later today!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Take your time @dreadnaut! I hope everything's allright.
  • Spoonboy
    Congrats to @Argammon @Duplode and @Mark Nailwood! And a strong amateur podium performance from @Mortimer McMire! Really enjoyed this track and the different approaches to the inside track. Not my fastest, but I was very happy with the double bridge wraparound at the end of my 1:11.56 lap ☺️
  • dreadnaut
    Scoreboard confirmed! Congratulations to @Argammon, @Duplode, and @MarkNailwood finally stepping on the podium πŸ‘ That's a whopping 5 experience points for you!
  • dreadnaut
    And the new track is up! Thanks go to @Argammon for ZCT274, "Mirage. And just to prove that, yes, you can get to the finish line, here's a first replay Grin

    Note: the race officially starts at midnight CEST, and so do the LTB calculations.

    This track is an acid trip, but I never did acid.

    Camaro, Mustang and Javelin released.
  • Daniel3D
    Custom track editors were made because the engine allows more that the build in track editor provides. But this might be the most engine bending track ever to feature a competition.. Thank you Argammon.. πŸ™πŸ» It's amazing..

    Happy birthday, @Spoonboy! Smiley

    Happy Spoonday @Spoonboy for you and all your forks!
  • Erik Barros
    Happy birthday @Spoonboy!!!
  • Zapper
    Happy birthday @Spoonboy! Very clever "Mirage" track from @Argammon! Are LTB points being updated (considering points earned on last race)?
  • Argammon
    Happy birthday @Spoonboy! Hoping you are getting some nice ice cream to spoon! Wink Β PS: I am glad you guys are enjoying the track. Thanks!
  • Ryoma
    This kind of track become to complex for me. I recognize the efforts but it's not for me.
  • Spoonboy
    Thanks everybody! Been a fun day, back to business tomorrow. Zak business Wink
  • Duplode
    @Zapper On the leading hours counter, yeah -- if 240 hours aren't reached in a race (thus granting an LTB point), the hours carry over until that happens. So e.g. you have started this one with 153 accumulated hours, and 87 (now 82) remaining.

May 8

  • Zapper
    Hi @Duplode, sorry for the confusion, I wrote "LTB points" and not "leading hours", so yes, LTB points for me are understood and shown correctly Smiley The reason for asking if there was an update issue was that right after entering the LTB board for this race, before getting the first leading hour in this race i.e. "0", the carry over hours shown were not considering the C273's count, it just showed less leading hours carried from C272. Thanks.

    Happy birthday, @Spoonboy!

    First blind try. Gee! I had never played a track like this one!
    F40 1:43.76

May 9

  • Duplode
    @Zapper Okay, so it's a transient issue, only happening during the first hour if there is carryover. Will keep an eye on it, thanks!
  • Ryoma
    Where am I on the map ? That's the question !
  • Daniel3D
    I really like this one. It's an interesting experience. It's not to difficult. Once you know the path.
  • dreadnaut
    @Duplode, @Zapper, I think the transient issue was me forgetting to press the button to update numbers, until a couple of hours after the start of the race 🀣

May 10

  • Mortimer McMire
    Have to agree with @Daniel3D. The track seems overwhelming at first but the more you try it the cooler it's get!
  • Argammon
    Glad you guys are enjoying the track! Smiley However, you are missing at least one shortcut. Should I spoil it, or do you want to keep exploring?
  • Zapper
    @Argammon, am I still missing the shortcut? Smiley
  • Argammon
    @Zapper: Yes, you do. Dreadnaut (or Duplode?) has the copyright on the one you found. He removed a water tile. Wink
  • Daniel3D
    whoohoo.. managed a 1:32.. finally... (if I ignore the 45 second penalty time.. ...)
    F40 1:49.60 A
  • Daniel3D
    Side note.. driving through the hill is fun, Damn difficult to get right because you can see the edge...

May 11

  • Duplode
    @Argammon @Zapper Yup, you can blame and/or thank me for that one -- it's an unintended interaction between two tweaks I suggested...

    My first test drive on this track. With some RH, of course. Smiley

  • Duplode
    This made me wonder: what would a NoRH lap here look like? Turns out it's doable, though pretty demanding when it comes to concentration!

    Mmmh, would look better with more red Grin

    Also, @Argammon, there's indeed plenty of stuff to try at the swamp (sector naming courtesy of @Spoonboy!). Like in this one:

    Thanks guys, en bedankt @Daniel3D! And I just wanted to let you know that I'll be back in competing in a few days. My thesis is due for next Monday so that's where all my spare time is going into at the moment!
