Love the concept of Car-Golf (PS3) Race. However, I sold my custom Entity last week and tried this race solo. When I got to around Checkpoint 7 and I could not get the ball up over to Checkpoint 8. Do I need the speed of a custom Entity (if allowed) and/or the help of other players? Also, I respawned at Checkpoint 9 and got stuck in the hole for a while. Maybe you don't need CP 9?. Could not finish the race. Maybe it's just me?
A custom Entity would probably help but the race is locked to the stock Entity for a few reasons.
1. It's AWD for better traction on some of the more difficult checkpoints.
2. It's low enough at the front to not climb the ball (bigger vehilcles like Sandking/etc mount the ball like a horny dog).
3. You need the power of a super car to get up the two ramp sections.
The only other vehicle that worked well was the tractor but if the ball got away from you it was too slow to catch it when it rolls backwards.
I made this 'race' as another puzzle experiment a few months ago, it is a challenging hole but can definitely be done with ease once you understand the choke points, a 2nd person might help but I think it's a better puzzle when played solo. The trial and error factor of what works and what doesn't makes this race frustratingly fun, the panic that sets in when the ball starts rolling backwards after getting it so far is a unique thrill not really found anywhere else in this game, you learn from the mistakes and try to apply a better strategy to get it done.
I'll check that checkpoint that got you stuck in the hole, I tested that spot a few times when I made it and didn't have any problems but maybe I could move it a bit to ensure that there is 0% chance of getting stuck there.
I had someone post a report to Rockstar about this race claiming I was a hacker (here is the link to the report page if you're interested https://support.rock...cker-gta-online
), so yes I understand it is a difficult challenge for the casual gamer but anyone with an interest in new ideas and has both patience and determination should definitely try it to see a creative mind in action.
I have a lot more creative races on my job page that people should check out if you like original and well crafted ideas but I rarely host or promote my races because I test them so much before publishing them and then move onto something new, so if you liked the creativity of Car-Golf check out my other races, there are a lot of gems in there that will impress.
