Okay, if Dreadnaut does not reply we're doing track... 7. The bottom left corner.

EDIT: And here's the track file minus the last minute (cosmetic) change someone should make tonight, for a few practice laps.

Did you pick a track yet Dreadnaut?

SD4000 sent me his choice for a car. It's a good one, his pick is (text colored light blue for camouflage, select to read unless you're Dreadnaut and haven't picked a track yet):
The LWT-ZR1 GT3 mark 2, available for download on the Southern Cross site. Speed on the straights, sliding through the corners. And it's extra fun because its developer Duplode just joined!

Then there's two more things:
1 We need someone to post a slightly modified version of the tracks chosen just before the race. Usually the change is a scenery element near the road, to prevent old replays from being used.
2 At least some countries are switching into daylight savings time tonight. For the Central European time zone for example this means we go from +1 to +2 GMT. Be sure  to take this into consideration (or you'll be an hour early, the horror.)

Knock yourself out.

Time wise, we gather in the chat Sunday at 20:00 GMT as originally suggested?

I meant pick a second subtrack from this one for the second race. That's the benefit of this format, you automatically have several backup tracks.

Of course if someone would just really like to make another track that's fine with me as well. In that case the map doesn't need to conform to this format or have other people making choices.

No wait, I've got a better weirder idea.

It all started with my concept. We're all a little weirded out by the current situation. Isolation, boredom, loneliness and even death itself are looming over us. So I thought: you know what we need? More of that. We need a proper pipsqueak quarantine facility.

Below I've posted 9 tracks, each around a bit under a minute in length. I've included them both as an image and as an attached track file. These tracks are called Quarantine Room 1 through 9. Each track can be obtained by replacing the lone arrow shaped highway piece in the split track section of that track with a start/finish pointing in the same direction. (As per the "Le Stunts" format we don't want to ever cross the finish line, which is why the start/finish is on a side track.) We're going to be doing one of these 9 tracks. Dreadnaut, as the person who took initiative for this live race, gets to say which track, and post his choice somewhere early this weekend, after which I'll supply the ready to go track for everyone who wants to join. But sd4000, as the first person to respond, gets to name which car we'll be using. This can be any car, but if it's a car from outside the current Zakstunts lineup there needs to be a way to download it. He has to make up his mind before Dreadnaut posts and the other way around, so have an answer ready in your head before this weekend. This way sd4000 will know roughly what kind of track he's picking a car for, but not which exact one.

Yes, it's overly complex, what were you expecting?

(If we want a second or backup race Cas can pick the track and Afullo the car, even if he can't make it to the event itself.)

Anyway, here it is:

Have fun picking!

Always happy to race on an Overdrijf track, go ahead! ;)

I'll post the track Friday, giving everyone two days to have a look.

Next week or something sounds nice.

Is one of you making a short track? Or shall I?

27-2=25, which is the rate of the room, and 2+3=5, which is the money the owner returned.

not sure about every year a new track. Which track? Maybe the best ZakStunts track voted for the year?

Plus maybe ZCT200, the legendary 7th official track. ;)

If you only allow leftover points to carry over you could end up in slightly tricky situations.

Let's say you got 239 hours last race, you get 241 hours this race, does that mean you only get 1 point from this race and no leftover hours?

You could judge that since this race you got over 240 hours independently the 239 hours you already had don't count and carry over to the next race instead, but in that case what happens if you got 239 hours last race and 239 hours this race, do you het one point and "lose" 238 hours? It seems hard to find a fair way to make those cuts.

If we're going with a system where leading time points are calculated independently from the separate races I think we should go all the way.

I still don't know enough about human psychology to be able to tell if this is a better motivation than the old system, it does seem fairer, but I do think that if we use this system all hours should carry over.

Also, yes, you can use this post as an argument that it totally wasn't you who decided it and that you didn't do it to keep all those hours from last race. ;) Because you didn't do it for that.

I don't know, I don't follow the competition too much. I just never was much of a sports watcher (although the last few years I did start watching Age of Empires 2 as an e-sport, something I thought I'd never ever do because it's not real sports, but ones you know what to watch for there is so much happening at all times that it's actually pretty interesting). Barney/Raymond van Barneveld (recently retired again) was the one that really popularized darts as a TV and pro sport here, it's a pretty recent development, but then again every time he made the news he sounded like a bit of a diva, going on about how super important it was that he was playing in new shirts with wider sleeves or some "look at me I'm a real sportsman" stuff. Co Stompé always comes across as a nice fellow, but he never wins, so uhhh... Michael van Gerwen?

Stunts Questions / Re: Extra Cars!

Duplode manages a downloadable collection over here. The ones you name in this post are all available from there. Cars not on there can often be found on the forum with the right search terms. CTG's projects are a bit of an exception sometimes, there's a bunch that made it to the "posting images" stage but apparently never quite to "downloadable car" (says Overdrijf, who has at least 2 unfinished car projects laying around at least one of which he has already decided on never finishing.)

Unskilled Drivers, Silver Spirit and Agro Motosport are also waiting for enthusiastic applicants. ;D

Crashper's Domination could use some new members as well.  ::)

Technically I don't have a suitable device now to run Stunts.

How fast is your phone? ??? 8)
