Some infos about this new project that I shortly told about in "5th IMSA Cup" topic started by CTG.
It will be a very different kind of Stunts competition, without scoreboard and competitions between pipsqueaks. Each pipsqueak will race HIS OWN competition. All the idea is a story of a pipsqueak, starting from local GT competitions, to (if you're good enough) Formula 1.
Your results and your choices will guide your own career. Be fast, race hard, choose your competitions wisely, and you may become Formula 1 champion.
Therefore, every driver will have his own personal and private page on the website, with his story evolution according to his results and his career choices.
Due to this particular career system, there will be NO DEADLINE for any track. Every pipsqueak will be able to complete a career in one year, or in one month : it will be your choice, according to your free time.
Each race will have reference times considered as bronze, silver and gold medals. No medal, no career evolution. Don't worry JTK : bronze medals will be adapted to allow all Stunts pipsqueaks to progress without too much problems, even the slower ones. But some part of the story (therefore some of the competitions) won't be reachable with only bronze medals.
All the story will be decided according to a "decision tree", like the one there is at Wing commander games for example (for old timers like me, it will mean something at least).
Except some special events like WRC races, all tracks will be real tracks adapted to Stunts. This means 67 tracks of 78 overall. Some tracks used during the different IMSA Cups will be re-adapted according to the new rules and/or new cars that will be used to race them.
All competitions will be inspired by real ones : DTM, JGTC, Porsche SuperCup, ChampCar, WRC, ...
All original and some "tuned" cars will be used. Different rules will be applied according to each competition. Sometimes shortcuts will be allowed and sometimes not, sometimes there will be more than one lap on a track, ...
All competitions won't be race to complete a career, but you'll be able to race more than one career if you want to try all the different tracks.
All informations and rules about this competition will be published in a "competition rules" page on the future website of this competition.Project W.I.P. (Work In Progress) at the date of 5th September 2006 :
Decision tree : done (except if I change my mind again, so far it's already the 5th version of the decision tree
Story : almost finished to be written.
Tracks designed : 1 / 78 (real work of track designing will start once all tracks logos and maps will be collected, I hope to create around 3 or 4 tracks per week if everything runs fine).
Real tracks logos found : 17 / 67 (I'm collecting them all right now)
Real tracks maps found : 12 / 67 (I'm collecting them all right now)
Real competitions logos found : 19 / 23 (I'm collecting them all right now)
Competition website : not even started.
Competition banner : some attempts made, but not good so far.
This message will be edited regularly to let you know about the W.I.P. of this competition preparation.
I hope the concept seems interesting to you, but I need some time to plan all the competition and create all the tracks.
One last info : this competition will begin after the last 2 steps of WRC Stunts will be raced. Expect a track designing finished for the end of 2006, maybe early 2007, and website preparation too. So it would mean last WRC Stunts events during the beginning of 2007 and then, this new competition concept of Stunts career will start.
