What is the Crowd Sourcing Competition?
The Crowd Sourcing Competition (CSC) is very similar to the CSR, since it’s a proven formula that’s worked time and time again. However, instead of submitting lore cars as a proposition for a single consumer, the CSC focuses on creating or perfecting someone else’s lore vehicle. This is not strictly a design competition unless explicitly stated; many of these rounds will be a combination of engineering and style!
This was highly inspired by @BoostandEthanol’s Keika company along with all those who have attempted to re-create their vehicles. Think of it as a second chance to see what people do to your cars!
Here’s how the process works:
Every round is designed and ran by the Competition Host (or Hostess). They must present the vehicle that they would like to have created or perfected, along with any additional information that may help the player create the vehicle.
All entrants will enter a car and posts the relevant pictures and stats on this thread
The competition host can specify the duration of the round, up to seven days (and no longer unless they have special permission)
The winner of the challenge will be able to formulate the restrictions on the next competition. If the winner of the challenge does not respond within 48 hours, the second place winner will be chosen. They have complete freedom to ask whatever they would like.
A failure to follow these rules may result in disqualification.
2011 - Kimura begins development on their iconic sports car, the Helruna, with expected release in mid-2015. However, there’s a bit of a dilemma; every year since conception, the Helruna has grown up. No doubt that it’s always been a more mature offering in a fairly frisky field, but the new 2015 Helruna has to make a statement. In addition, it has to improve on the previous models, with dynamic excellence at top priority. A balance of sportiness, drivability, and comfort aren’t just expected; it’s mandatory. Being the very first Helruna with a turbocharged engine as standard also provides a bit of difficulty, as you must cater to those who scream sacrilege and completely shut down power-hungry peoples.
Your task is to be a team of people; design and engineer what you believe to be the perfect version of the next sports machine.
You will be creating a mid-trim “SCt” version of the SJ18 Generation Kimura Helruna. This should include the provided 1.8 Liter Turbocharged inline-4 engine, 6-speed manual, and a limited slip differential.
I will be driving these cars in BeamNG, which will slightly affect my judging.
Naming conventions are as expected.
Model: CSC1 - [username]
Engine: Keep the engine name the same.
Variant: CSC1 - [username]
For the car and engine, do we change the model and variant years to 2015, or does the engine have to be kept with the family and variant years of the base car we download?
Edit: Some criticism about the challenge itself. I feel that it should be played similar to how the current CSR challenges are layed out, with this thread being the main discussion thread with full challenge rules, while there a separate threads for each round.
The variant year seems to have changed to 2017 accidentally by me, so please change only the variant to 2015. As for playing it out as a CSR, I think I will be continuing it like the original CSR where the rounds are put into this thread until/if it fills up.
