AGC24 - One Banger of a Race [RESULTS]

Previous round

A NEW PROJECT BY SPEEDCO STUDIOS

BLURB

IT’S 2022 AND AFTER YET ANOTHER MILKING SESSION OF THEIR LAST GAME ,THE STUDIO DECIDES TO ONCE AGAIN BROADEN THEIR MARKET SHARE. THE LAST GAMES WERE ALL SUCCESSES, BUT AFTER 3 ARCADE-THEMED GAMES, THE STUDIO WANTS TO TEST THEMSELF AT SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING MORE REALISTIC.

THE STUDIO QUICKLY DUG OUT ONE OF THEIR OLD IDEAS: PROJECT FIRESTARTERZ. THE CONCEPT WAS A REALISTIC-ISH RACING GAME BEING THEMED ABOUT DERBY AND BANGER RACING. TRACKS WOULD BE MOSTLY CONSIT OF DIRT TRACKS AND PLAYGROUNDS WITH SOME SLIGHT JUMPS AND DESTRUCTIVE ENVIROMENTS. FOCUS SHOULD BE THE DETAIL OF THE CRASHMODELS AND THE RACING IN A COMPETETIVE WAY.


CONSIDERING THE GOOD PR and the lower costs of production IT WAS DECIDED THAT ONCE AGAIN THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE INVOLVED WITH FILLING OUT THE CAR LIST.
BEST CAR GETS COVER


CONCEPT

FAQ

A: Have a look here

Should there be a rule for a price or ET limit? Otherwise what is there to stop someone from +15 quality spamming everything to boost stats?

Also, engine family and variant much match model year? Would this not prevent old car from entering since 95 ron unleaded fuel doesn’t unlock until the 70’s?

Hm, this is absolutely interesting, it is mostly a matter of what I will enter, thinking either late 60s IP Icarus, same vintage Saarland Kardinal or some Vaughn/Wraith… :thinking:

What about power steering of any kind? Are we allowed to use it, or not?

Oh look. Miko is stupid and forgot to add His already written rules

How am I supposed to remove the window glass? I don’t see an option to have no glass anywhere in the car designer

In the visibility settings, there is a slider for glass transparency. Setting it to max will mean invisible windows.

This and you can now Change the window color in the color menu. I will make a quickguide when Home

Or you could set the material for the windows slot in the materials tab to Transparent (which is found in the Defaults paint group).

Because this was already asked multiple times:

“But Miko, what does the design rule mean?”

Here is you quick Tutorial:


Windows

There are multiple ways of removing those pesky seethroughs:

  1. Window Transperency

Putting the window transperency too 100% will make them invisable

  1. Invisable Material

You can change the window material to transparent, also hiding the windows

  1. The CBT Special

PLEASE DONT, SAVE YOURSELF THE TIME, BE MORE PRODUCTIVE

You can also cut away all the windows with Cutaway pieces
please dont this will take 5 hours and wont look as good as the other options


Racing Interior

Here is the most “I can’t be fucked” legal interior:

This interior consits of:

  • RB’s Racing seats and wheel
  • The Rollcage mod
  • One of the vanilla external tanks. Please make sure the tank is located inbetween front and rear axle

I guess that fuel economy is a “lol what?” stat in this case?

What once started out as a 1974 Markley Corydora SST coupe has been hammered around the block a few times, abandoned, reclaimed, striped out, striped out, and is now ready to bash it up with the best of them!

If that doesn’t scream “American and proud!” out loud, I don’t know what does.

Just a quick question since the new steering options are now in the game. Does this mean “manual recirculating ball” only, or does it also encompass “manual rack & pinion”?

Pretty sure both are fine as long as long as they’re manual
