FTT0103
« on: June 01, 2008, 08:41:13 PM »
3rd race will be raced with Porsche Carrera 4.
Track design and scenery are quite differen from previous race, I always have problems to design track for Carrera. :D
I hope you'll like it, track is not so difficult but is longer than previous races, and each corner can make you loose a lot of time. Perfect replay will be hard to achieve in noRH, but who knows what Duplode (twice winner of first 2 races) is capable of ?
Of course, Chulk, Mark or any other pipsqueak are allowed to be faster than Duplode. ;D

OMG! NoRH dual-way switching with Carrera?! :o Or are we supposed to only use the "outer" path? (Edit: Indeed it would be nicer if both the dual-way switching and the "square" paths get forbidden, the race will be a bit boring with them...)

Oops ! :o Stupid me : I added a round road as scenery but you're all supposed to race the external track.

A news in the website have been added to explain this point. Way-switching is forbidden in this track, sorry for the inconvenience, I forgot this when I added the scenery. Stupid me... ::)

Well, now with the ring road excluded the track is pretty intriguing, and will likely provide an unusual and interesting race, maybe with a lot of different racing lines... :)  And Krys, a suggestion: maybe it would be a good idea to fuse "Home" and "News" pages on the website, a newbie who doesn't go to the forums for instance could easily overlook the dual-way switching warning.

I was thinking the same after publishing my news yesterday. I should put "home" infos on main index page (the one with Mark's video) and keep only the news as index page on english website (it reminds me that I still have to finish the other languages websites). I had no time yesterday but I'll do it in the next days.
Good thing is the way I programmed the website : I have only to change 1 file and all pages will be changed for the left menu change. Php is really powerfull and time saving. I remember how much time it was to update WRC Stunts and IMSA Cup websites, I'm so happy now with php. :)

Well, I find 30 minutes to try the track, at last...
Strange race, this one... Long track, soap car, vanish shortcuts, it needs drive very carefully...
I really don't know how it will finish... Sure I hope to stay ahead you, but... your shape is really amazing!

I promise to be on track by Monday night, it's just that I've been really, really busy this week. I'll test the track and send my first (acceptable) time.

2 days remaining until deadline and still only 3 pipsqueaks... ::)
Even if Chulk joins, it will be the same 4 pipsqueaks as last race... :-[

Having nearly not having raced over this week other than Zak/Jac opening laps, I'm about to try a last shot right now - my current time is just too old... :)

Thanks Duplode...  :)
Well, another win for you would have made really hard my run to the title... So today I tried to improve my 1.36,35 realized last sunday and... I found a good lap... ;)

Well done Mark anc Duplode, hard fight between you. Sadly I didn't join it due to bad mood.

Seeing only 3 pipsqueaks (including me) racing makes me think of the time spent to code the website... And I wonder if it was worth the job according to the number of pipsqueaks to be honest... ::)

One positive thing (apart the fight between Mark and Duplode) : AbuRaf sent a replay by mail. But I can't valid it as there's no video recording...

I am not in the mood of website update tonight (track upload, news and stats update), expect the new track tomorrow only. Sorry for those who wanted to race tonight.

Sorry I couldn't join guys! But! My heavy final, mid-term, extra courses period is over now. I was really busy because I wanted to do 3 final exams in last 2 months, apart from a couple of mid-term and a home course of an Accountancy program (actually, I got the program and spent many hours daily figuring out how it worked using some tutorials). That's why I was around the forum as always but couldn't race. Expect full power Chulk for next 2 or 3 months at least!
