Are you gonna beat all the records?

No. Maybe 2 or 3.

Wow, that's really impressive...
But we can't be quite sure.

I still don't think the closed tracks are of any real significance. There's no general set of rules. Some of them are with ISA rules, some of them OWOOT but allowing shortcuts and dual-way switching, and some of them are based on the weird watery versions of the original tracks.
But we can't be quite sure.

I think the problem with Skid's is that it's too easy. The Biker doesn't have the advantage of being able to pull off 32489395324 hours of very dedicated and professional RH here because any decent pipsqueak can drive a near-perfect lap on Skids within 30 minutes.
But we can't be quite sure.

But still, they are part of permanent competition's history. No extra regulations, please.

I would leave them out too. We can race on any track pretending it's important than.. (which is not a bad idea, but I find closed tracks based on default tracks annoying)

They survived the last 12 years - should stay.

Well, imagine if that argument had won all through history  :P
But we can't be quite sure.

If closed tracks will be removed from permanent section, I'll re-publish them in USC.

(You can agree or disagree, but so many pipsqueaks pushed hard on these tracks - they should stay in permanent status. Even if not as the part of the "classic" permanents.)

I don't mind that they are there, I just think that when we compare results on permanent tracks, it makes no sense if they are counted.
But we can't be quite sure.

I think I should rather implement the automatic update as for the normal scoreboard. It's just a couple of hours coding... please stay tuned...

I'm tuned, but permanent competition is still the same. ::)

So... if I send some new laps in e-mail, will you update the scoreboards? ::)

Quote from: ZakStunts, Permanent tracks section (emphasis added by me)
These are permanent competitions (they last forever) on the default tracks shipped with stunts, and on the closed versions of these. Simply download the tracks if you don`t have them, race on it, and send the replay. Rules are simple, you can use any car (not tuned of course!), and replay handling. Your name will be listed here, doesn't matter what place you achieve.
Good luck!

So... closed tracks should really stay. :D

Btw what about an expanded permanent competition? All the original+closed tracks, separate scoreboard for each cars (original pack + any other non-rocket car ever used in ZakStunts). Since nobody has enough time to play for leading all the scoreboards, it would give a nice and more balanced eternal competition.  ;)

I remember 2002, when permanent records were still at human level - any newbies could make a TOP3 result. I think the huge amount of different options would give some enthusiasm to the non-addict players, too.
