Stunts Chat / Stunts Contest in dosreloaded.de
November 24, 2022, 09:51:20 PM
https://dosreloaded.de/forum/index.php?thread/5028-4d-sports-driving-stunts-jahrescontest-2022/&pageNo=1

Hey last year there was a Stunts Contest! I think this year there is again a contest but it's all in German :D We should make some advertising and exchange visits there ;) In fact they raced with custom cars like Lotus Esprit or BMW DTM

This was the set of rules:
QuoteRoute Selection Rules:

- we are collecting routes NOW. Anyone may submit one or more routes. Please PM me, DO NOT attach here

- There are no more predefined vehicles, but the builder is allowed to name vehicles that don't work on his track (this way we avoid having to make everything Lamborghini LM-002 compatible)

- Distances should be max. 2-3 minutes long



Rules for the contest itself:

- we start on 1.1.

- Every month a route and the associated vehicle will be drawn at random

- everyone can submit times until the end of the respective month, so you can always improve. Screenshot is enough as proof, replay does not have to be.

- no shortcuts, no driving through the grass, no shortcuts to obstacles (e.g. looping and corkscrew driving through in any case)

Competition 2022 / ZCT257 - Otto's Christmas
November 23, 2022, 02:41:18 PM
What's the car of the month? Who will win? Why is so flat? Why is so snowy? Is it a Persian Gulf man-made island? Why you can't reach two gift boxes?

Custom Cars with Stressed / Muscle Cars pack
November 01, 2022, 04:15:20 AM
Ok this is a pack of classic cars that must exist but nobody built. So I'll take the job :) It's a great challenge but it would be cool these cars as a pack because it opens up a wide range of possibilities for competitions and live races.
There are many iconic muscle cars (and also many variants and versions of each car) but I chose an specific time frame. I started with the 3d models. They still need some fixes but I'll spoil how's going.
The cars are (from left to right in the attached picture)

- 1969 Dodge Charger
- 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
- 1967 Pontiac GTO
- 1970 Plymouth Superbird

I chose 4 different brands taking in mind a brand rivalry too.
The pack must be larger but I will start with "only" these four. Building a pack is a hard work because you have to make many tests in different situations to make them similar but different. Overdrijf showed us the way. Any tip, suggestion and opinion will be welcome!

There are a couple of muscle cars already built Dodge Challenger (CTG + Ryoma) and Ford Mustang GT350 (Ryoma) but they have quiet different performances so they won't count as part of this pack.

What other muscle cars should be in this pack?

Custom Cars with Stressed / De Tomaso Pantera
September 23, 2022, 08:10:50 PM
Working on it. I have high expectations for this car.

- 3d model: 100% finished.
- performance: 95% top speed, grip values, etc. is ok. It only needs few adjustments in the shiftings. Easy.
- dashboard: About 80% finished. working pixel by pixel (zzzzzz).
- paintjobs: finished. 9 lovely different colors.

Competition 2022 / ZCT 254 the big fight!!
September 17, 2022, 01:48:36 PM
How come it became one of the most interesting races of the year? The comeback of Usrin, KyLiE earning another LTB point, Zapper without a team fighting everybody for the leading, Duplode in the shadows or just too busy, Frieshansen, the ex newbie ex amateur and now a grown pro with beard (just kidding  ;D ) fighting for the LTB too...

Uncertain leader and appropiate car. Very interesting and fun to watch.

Chat - Misc / Quarantine days
August 10, 2022, 06:27:03 AM
How did you spend your time in quarantine days? We can extend it to 2020-2021 free time with the pandemic restritions.

I work at home but anyways my free time was 100% at home, watching movies or tv show from Netflix with my girlfriend. But as for me alone I played a lot of games. I finished (again) games like Maniac Mansion, Zak Mckacken, Indy and the last cruzade, Loom, Monkey Island, Indy and the fate of atlantis, Day of the Tentacle. I also finished Fallout 3, NFS Underground 2, Mafia 2 and Outlast.

As you can see I reinstalled the old games I played years before. I wonder why I didn't play stunts more often. It was the perfect situations.

Live Races / NIGHT and FOG live races
August 04, 2022, 07:40:20 PM
Hi! I'm on the project of a 2 stages live race. They are rally-like races where you have to race with these wheather change.
Here is an example video of both stages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmeJoPeZIm4

First Stage: Night
Second Stage: Fog

To simulate the enviroment I edited the dashboard of the Chevrolet Silverado but it could be easy adaptated to any car.
What do you think?

...or at least the top replays? Yes/no and where?
Thanks!

Stunts Chat / Default track
August 03, 2022, 03:53:12 PM
Default track as you know it's a dual-way track. When you race against an opponent they always choose the shortest way... so why they choose the longest way in this track? The longest way is too much longer than the shortest so it is not the same. The question is: WHY? ???

General Chat - CCC / 08 - Run Forrest Run!
July 31, 2022, 10:06:56 PM
August brings a fast track and for this ocation Daniel prepaired a special pack of 7 cars: 2 F1 cars, 4 INDY cars and a very special bonus car, a 5th INDY! :o :o :o Keep reading my friend.

INDY
Your first option is the classic almighty Porsche/March INDY ! Nothing to add. You can also take the option of Ferrari 637, Ryoma's superpowered big nose INDY (be careful, it has power gear too!). The other two Indy are from the "what if Porsche/March doesn't have power gear" pack, the well known Lola/Cosworth Indy one of the protagonists cars at the last live race and the brand new Penske/Chevrolet Indy, built to debut at this event.

F1
About F1 cars you have two options, the good old McLaren Honda MP4/4, the one with Marlboro paintjob, designed by the best in my honest opinion, Zapper. The other F1 option comes from the hundred cars man, Ryoma. It's his red Ferrari 641 also making its debut!

Special guest car!: The father of the custom cars
What about the 7th car of this race?? Well, like the seventh son of a seventh son here is an ancient beast of the Stunts competitions: 4D Contest Car by Lukas Loehrer is back on track. The Contest Car is a slightly tuned up version of Porsche March Indy developed by Lukas Loehrer for the 1.0 versions of the game." now adaptated for the standard Stunts version 1.1. It is one of the oldest custom cars and certainly the first used for competition. As this is the Custom Car Championship this car was a "must". :)

I hope you'll enjoy the battle of this month. You can race with all cars if you want. Join us here: https://ccc.mystunts.net/index.php

Also you can check the cars in the Stunts wiki: http://wiki.stunts.hu/index.php?title=Custom_cars

Custom Cars with Stressed / Penske Chevrolet INDY
July 23, 2022, 02:03:50 AM
A new car has born! Penske Chevrolet was one of the most successful teams in mid/late 80's INDY competition.
You can download it from my drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1f-zy1nrZY5zx9u6Zi4cCoP4ZKXZcUAZ7
Also you can find all my cars there and a list of work-in-progress cars.

This is the wiki article with the details of the cars ;)

Custom Cars with Stressed / Ingame Car info
June 22, 2022, 01:04:18 AM
The original cars has some info about every car when you select one. it is:

Car Name
(sometime a category like IMSA or Indy)

Engine, wheel drive
more engine
cc, HP
0-60 acceleration
top speed
price

All of this information is about the real car but not the game car. We followed this way mostly when building custom cars. I mean it's not 1990 anymore, everybody can google all the specs about the real car but this info makes nonsense in the game. Shall we change it to be more useful to the user at the time of building custom cars?
It's not about if the car is realistic or not but to have as user the truthfull info/specs about the car we will choose.

Now, what kind of information would be useful? We have 9 lines for this. It could be: Name for sure, designer is an option (I add it to my cars), car category if applicable, 0-60 acceleration, 0-100 acceleration maybe, real (ingame) top speed, Half Mile?, transmissions?, flat track top speed maybe?... also a line about grip maybe?

Just an example:

Corvette ZR1


0-60mph: 5.0s
0-100mph: 11.3s
Half Mile: 20.55s
Grip: an easy way to know if it's good or not, like a 1/10 scale or Hard/Easy
Flat track top speed: 180mph
Top Speed: 245mph


What else? What do you think?

Competition 2022 / ZCT251 - Rainy Day
June 11, 2022, 05:27:09 PM
It seems a challenging track. I think it was made for Melange or a similar racing car. There are many spots for speed boosts and tricky jumps.

Custom Cars with Stressed / No Wheels issue
June 11, 2022, 05:06:19 PM
Did you try a car without wheels? It looks the same just floating without wheels... but if you turn the stearing wheel to the sides a number of polygons breakes and moves with your commands. Specifically not polygons but vertices. There are more than 4 and maybe it doesn't takes the first four polygons replacing the wheels there is something more. If we could control this I think it would be useful for non conventional cars maybe a more realistic use for trailers or moving parts of cars and any type of vehicle.
