The 2000 Taxi challenge


#47

E-Mail from some important Anhultz employee:

Dear [insert preferred gender] [Insert last name],

we would like to inform you that if the three test vehicles sent are, the testing customer has to pay them full-price unless it can be proven to be accidental or the vehicle damage does not render the vehicle “totaled”.

This does not apply to vehicle #3 as it has been sent for crash testing purposes.

Yours Sincerely,
[some generic Dutch name]


#48

Don’t worry. We only crash the car that we sent over the torture road before. So there is only one car to write off. The rest will be unharmed.


#49

@all

I think this challenge will need a lot of time.
I mean… back in the good old days I always knew it I was driving a VW Golf, a Renault 11 or a Fiat Ritmo or anything else.
Since 1990 the cars became more similar, now its not really a difference if I sit in a VW Golf or Renault Megane rental car. The same happened to Automation: The BeamNG overall driving score is very similar on many cars, making it hard to tell which one is best and how good others are in relation.

I do not want to throw away that judging part, but also I do want to give fair and flawless judging. This means I am driving the cars over and over again to be able to find the small differences.


#50

Take your time. Our cars are already submitted lol. I’d rather have a thorough critique done than have someone gloss over my car quickly for the sake of time.


#51

same, id rather have someone mention on how unusual my cars look rather than just judge them by their engine, or looks or stats alone


#52

As this needs really a lot of time I have something to do for you in the meantime, I hope that makes the waiting more bearable and less boring.

Look here.


#53

(dunno about the number of entries, but still: two weeks of it being at idle while having another challenge in progress in parallel)


#54

#55

Two weeks and nothing, ouch


#56

#57

#58

C’mon guys… he made it clear that he’s going through some stuff right now. Passive aggression isn’t gonna solve anything.


#59

I thought it would be not fair not to give you a lifesign.

#60

posting this alone has already given me hope!


#61

Nyoooooommmmm

The current update ruined the scoring statistics, have to recalculate as I did not include two (!) of the entrants by accident, I overread the PMs. So this would be unbalanced … need to check the drivability, comfort etc. scores of all entrants again. Nargh. But this challenge is back at 80% progress after that then.


#62

wait is the second one the back of one of my entries?


#63

Recalculation done.

Excel calculation will be published here this weekend to give you a first insight and alter the tension. Beam part is also finished but its’ tough giving the Points wisely…

@Caligo seing the screenshot above … your car is a bee…


#64

So, here you can see the stats in comparison of all entrants.
I removed the scored points as this overloaded the table, and I am still struggling a little with the Beam part.

But at least you can now see that I am acutally working on it and not telling you bullshit.


#65

Looks at engines

:musical_note: one of these things is not like the other :musical_note:


#66

Damn, I have cut the table accidentally, some cars are missing. I will re-upload it after work.
