GCC1 (Galactis Community Challenge) - 2000s Third World ShitBoxes [Closed]

2000's Third World Shitboxes


A quick intro into our challenge

In the 2000s we've seen great leaps for the humanity in many sectors, technology sky rocketing, entertainment for days, and also cars, some were mental and some more, well, let's not talk about that part... But not everyone has the biggest luck to own a fast car or a luxury one, but instead has to live with a shit box like the Dacia Sandero, the Tata Indica, the Daewoo Lanos or the almighty Toyota Corolla. In this challenge, we will torture these shitboxes by driving in the roughest roads ever, pushing cargo, and the usual stuff.

Some real life examples

Toyota Corolla

Tata Indica

Must the item in question be a three-way unit of any kind?

so is there some sort of beamng driving part in this challenge?

Worried about jbeam editing, having some cars have supercharger while others don’t sounds kind of unfair

Tsk another Discord thing. Nope.

What’s the evaluation criteria going to be / what to build for?

You can use any kind!

Yes we will drive your cars in beamng, we will give more details soon, on what test we are going to do and that sorta stuff

As I said to ls I will disclose it soon, expect it today or tommorrow!

If you can get a supercharger in this challenge and still make it logical, hats off to you

What do you want, AOL?

Jbeam editing. Those who have played around in the files can add a supercharger, active wings, and pretty much anything else they want that doesn’t exist in Automation.

read what I said again, you read it wrong

I don’t even know what a Jbeam is haha

Not to be pedantic, but I would expect someone that announces a Community Challenge (or Competition) to host it in a way that benefits the site they are using to announce it. IOW host it here.

We’ve run hundreds of competitions successfully here on the forum. If you want to run a Discord server in parallel, I would say that’s fair but dragging traffic away from a place to run your thing seems…wrong.

I’m probably the only person that dislikes Discord. Tried it, tried to keep track, was rudely interrupted in my sleep over random notifications that I swore I turned off (update change, I guess), and I put it to bed after finding it annoying to use.

.02 and soapbox, all that.

Fair enough actually

Hello everyone, now you can find on what will we evaluate on + more info too, you can also find the track which we will test your cars in that section ( “Quick Update on the evaluation criteria + more info”), but I’ll tell here anyways, Italy, Asphalt Hillclimb 2 (time trail).
In rest that’s it, happy building!

2010 Mara Xenia 1.6 SR

In the first years after its release, the Regular base versions of the Xenia were available with the tried-and-true 1.6 litre SOHC engine dating back to the turn of the century.


Here the 3-door sedan, sharing much of its sheetmetal with the liftback version.
