Where were the comet bars?
Congratulations again to @That-S-cop for clapping everyone yet again! And I’m in second place again, hell yeah.
Had not placed and trash, as always, wooow, what a surprise.
Letho I strongly suggest that you don’t bring salt to both Discord and the forums. It’s a good way to get yourself in trouble for starting drama.
Take a deep breath, walk away, and come back to it later once you’ve cooled off :))
A word of advice. I strongly suggest you change the way you view “losses” and competitions and general. Yes, not making it to the podium can be disappointing to see. But you need to view this not as a loss, but as a chance to improve. Corsica was nice enough to write out highly specific posts about each of our cars. Use that as a resource so you can learn what went right and what went wrong, so that next time you’ll throw out a better product than before.
As for competitions, I advise you to not view them as things to win, but as opportunities to improve yourself. For me, I’m happy enough if I put out an entry that’s better than anything I have previously made, or if I’ve learned something that I overlooked or simply didn’t know. The more you improve, the more likely you will be to win a competition. You’re already a good designer, but everyone has a thing or two to learn. Winning should not be the primary focus.
In addition, don’t expect to win every competition you enter. In fact, don’t even expect to land a podium position. I’m not saying don’t try your best, but that you shouldn’t have very high expectations. Because more often than not, you won’t perform as well you have expected and it’ll result in things like this happening. This goes for life in general, if you always set your expectations high you’ll always be disappointed. But that’s just my $0.02. You can take this advice, or we can repeat everything that’s just happened in the next few competitions. The choice is yours.
Okay, okay, okay. Your van wasn’t trash, you aren’t trash, nobody is thinking that you are trash except you. That doesn’t qualify you an instant access to the finals however, despite what you might be thinking.
Even with the 300 word review you received, if you feel there’s some info missing or you want clarification on something, you’re welcome to DM me as I mentioned in the post. Ignoring every piece of criticism and then going on another tirade isn’t going to help you or anyone else and is just setting it up for this kind of thing to happen again and again. Listen to what others are saying, read what is said about your car, ask for more info if needed and learn from your mistakes.
Please, for the sake of everyone and yourself, learn from this experience. I know everyone is different, but you can’t expect to be brilliant at everything without listening to the actual, useful criticism given to you. Don’t act like you’re better or worse than everyone else, you’re only hurting yourself with that. Giving up is the worst thing you can do, you can hopefully sense that from the reaction you caused.
Letho, I hope the best for you, but please learn from your mistakes.
Gah, knew I was going a bit too wild with the design. All is forgiven when I crunched it in 3 hours and did my best not to conform with the language of the Beat. Anyways, great round! Lots of effort put into it!
As for the salt, oh well.
->Letho gives me shit for quitting RSA
After taking way too long to calm down from an adrenaline spike
And maybe a bad winner moment… sorry Delta
Glad for the win… on my first CSC… I’ve stunned myself. Questioning on opening a round with the current state of the game and mods.
With Marksman’s particularly close connection to Comet-Bar, we will be requesting if we can get Comet-Bar Stockman and Workman bars as a dealer option for the Convey.
I really enjoyed making something out of my comfort zone, thanks for running a great challenge man
A vanilla csc maybe?!
Is anyone willing to do so? I mean I’m fine with it… and there’s a chance we won’t have all/most the useful mods as soon as 4.24 hits… when 4.24 stable comes is a touch uncertain at the moment, however, but we don’t want to get stuck when the update hits. Vanilla CSC is a likely option…
I would have liked to know if I even got close to 6th, but nonetheless fun
yeah my designs are always… off, those headlights really bugged me
I would vote for vanilla CSC for sure, as that’s the only way for me to enter with my current hardware (though I suspect the engine change also contributing to that improvement)
Lucky you. I’m happy if my submissions don’t get binned in the first round
What’s the plan with this? Is it a case of still waiting for the stable update to hit?
I’m just wondering as this could have been run in the mean time
Yeah basically… and a few mods have already started being ported over, eg, MDHL2.
The Vanilla option is ever present and looming
The round will open a few days after UE4.24 drops to stable. Looks to be soon enough
Come up and design a Compact or similarish car with Quirky Styling for the Shuriken Motor Company.
Tips, these are the only ones you are getting, infer the rest
>w<face… You don’t need to… and it actually might make it more conventional to Shuriken styling if you do. don’t ask how I don’t know either…
Mainly as I only have 2 cars remotely modern

2018 Shuriken Bsnama Sport
A quirky lifted hot hatch targeted towards younger customers.
Is it a crossover? It’s up to your discretion. It can certainly offroad better than any crossover on the market.
Power comes from a 2.0 SOHC turbocharged inline six, with all cast internals and low friction pistons. making 200 hp @5400 rpm and 227 lb ft@3000 RPM, which is sent to all four wheels at a 40/60 F/R split through a 6 speed dual clutch transmission and a viscous LSD.This is enough to send the little pocket rocket to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and top speed is clocked at 144 mph.
A modern infotainment system, standard 10’s safety, a progressive suspension, electric variable steering, and an offroad underway complete the list of standard features for the Sport trim. Fuel economy is solid at 36.7 mpg combined, or an EPA estimate of 33 mpg city and 40 mpg highway,
Though the regular Banana starts at under 20k, the premium features and sports-tuned engine drive the Sport trim’s price to $28700.
Note: the Banana happens to be a badge engineered MTC Prairie, and was conceived due to a small partnership between the two companies resulting in Shuriken acquiring the rights to sell the Prairie in the Japanese market under its own branding, in return for Shuriken giving MTC access to its kei car platforms and engines.
(I was done with my design as it was basically just a rebadge of one of my existing designs, so I’m posting it now, will submit the car when the window opens)
