OK folks round 2 details are up on Page 1 now.

 

 

rd02.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FUTURE SEASONS / PC USERS

 

IT'S LONG WINDED BUT I'D APPRECIATE IT IF YOU READ IT FULLY. 

 

As you will notice when you run the track, there is a huge amount of prop placement at the tail end of the lap.

 

The intention was to have the whole track propped in this manner and generally a lot more detailed and better laid out. 

 

However because of the nature of the way Creator works I'm doubling the amount of work for PC, as a result what you see so far in this track is about 50 hours work switching between PS4 and PC. 

 

Those of you who spend a lot of time in Creator will know how much often you will change things as you work, i.e. you place a load of props, get to the end of that section then go back and move them. Sometimes you will end up with a layout different to that you intended because you adjust bit by bit to get the finished article.

 

So, what does this mean?

 

To get a track like the current round finished and working properly on both platforms I estimate around 100 hours work if not more. The main issue is you lose that flow (for want of a better way of putting it) while making the tracks and it becomes a little bit of a chore.

 

I've already had to change some ideas I had for this year for this reason, particularly the fact that Advanced Placement co-ordinates actually differ between PS4 and PC version. 

 

At the end of last year I said that I would start the year running PS4 & PC and see how things go. In light of the above I just cannot justify continuing PC indefinitely. 

 

So I shall continue to the end of this season (round 5) including PC but then from Round 6 onwards we shall be PS4 only. 

 

It's not a particularly nice decision to come to and although we have only a small amount of PC players entering some of you have been our most regular competitors. 

 

But between self employment, Creator and the fact I intend to also start full time study again in September I cannot spend that amount of time on tracks to ultimately end up producing something that I am not happy with myself anyway. We left PS3 behind this year because it was holding back what we could do, but have ultimately then moved to a point where PC is doing the same thing just through the sheer time factor involved.

 

Thank you to those of you on PC who have supported me with the Time Trials over the last year or so. It is because of that support I have tried to continue the PC side and will continue to the end of this season. 

 

Obviously should R* ever offer us cross platform then the above will be null and void. I am several others have suggested this in the past, but I suspect it's something very low on their radar.

 

What I would offer is that if someone wanted to do something PC based themselves I will of course support them as best I can by entering myself and offering advice should they need it.

That's a shame to hear but like hook said, we appreciate you trying to keep us involved for so long! It's been a lot of fun :^:

 

If there's any interest I'll be more than happy to help create a PC time trial event following the end of this season :)

In light of hookits post I actually had another idea. 

 

Keep an eye out for a new thread.

Was just wondering, this is PS4 and PC now. Have you thought of maybe using a few peoples tracks who have transferred? Or some recreations like Broughy's tracks?

I've used some variations of Olympic GP before, the other tracks are too long. Anything over about 2 minutes as a maximum and people get a bit angsty about it. 

 

There aren't that many decent tracks transferred unfortunately, or at least not many that I've found which I think are good enough to use.

 

What I am thinking is I'll run the two separately but mostly use other peoples tracks on PC as the NoDo PC have a huge amount of good and varied tracks, the Creator side on PC is definitely a much more utilised resource. I think it's maybe just a PC mentality thing as you expect to be able to mod and add things so Creator is embraced a bit more, certainly there are a lot less Spiral to the stars kind of nonsense on there.

 

Making the tracks on PC isn't the issue as such, it's making the same track on PC which is the time consumer.

 

If it was just for basic racing it doesn't make any difference, but on the new track for instance, if the chicane / tight section where all of the barriers is was a tiny bit more open on one version over the other suddenly you can have a second or so advantage on one platform. So they have to be exact, on the old style tracks it's not so much of an issue as it was really all just blocking apexs and lamp posts which is dead easy.

 

Before the start of last year when patg/gtaplayer1 was helping me check a couple of tracks to compare on PS3 versus PC I had the checkpoint on Grand Turismo R where you come out from under the bridge and turned right to go down towards Helitours in a slightly different position and it changed the angle of the corner entirely, it was worth about a second a lap before I corrected it for the first round.

 

We'll most likely end up with the same tracks being used on both platforms at some point but built independently and most likely with some variations in how they turn out.

So a separate PC and PS4 time trials is due? I guess i can live with that. I would really miss not being able to play in the event.

 

I personally found the creator similar to use on PC and back then on PS3, only having a hard time on PC is with the stunt creator placement in air, it's a bit...annoying and the camera isn't very pleasant.

Agreed, PC has some really good tracks.

If your looking for a transferred track you could look on my socialclub. I got a 'stunt' track which is less then a minute a lap, transferred from PS4 to PC so exactly the same.

Double. Can I make a suggestion that if we are switching to separate tracks, that we add an xbox 1 section?? Happy to help with this. Could also help with making the odd round on all three formats.

If you want to do an Xbox version I'm more than fine with that.

 

Happy to help out if / how I can but as I don't have Xbox access I'm not likely to be a huge amount of use other than to maybe give advice.

 

 

 

More importantly, deadline tonight for this round. Once we've got all of the times in for this one and round 3 is up and running I'll start the PC thread, although it will be seriously rough at this stage while I identify the PC users (I know who some of you are but we maybe have a few spare). Plus I will contest both obviously as hopefully will Verstappen and Steve.

I think I'll sit out the TTs till the PC one starts, especially now that I forgot to get a good lap around this track and submit it :s

An interesting turn of events with an completely and utterly uninspired selection of cars at the sharp end.

 

Fido makes it 2 out of 2 with Banketelli again finishing in 2nd spot. I returned to my slightly above average normal performance so DavidCore goes straight in to 3rd spot.

 

BatmanZero1 takes the Hipster Award for being the sole competitive time in a sea of Elegy RH8's.

 

We can but hope that at some point R* see fit to do some tweaking of the car specs so we can get some variety in occasionally. 

 

Full results in the pdf which can be found HERE.

 

Results are provisional until Tomorrow evening when I will upload the Crew versus Crew. It would be going up now but I have broken the sort feature on my spreadsheet and it's not going all too well.

Also the details for Round 3 are up now. 

 

No specifically named track this time around as it's someone elses creation on PC which I recreated ages ago on PS3.

It's Compacts for this round, I'm strongly considering a Karin Dillettante penalty for Domestic Battery at this stage!

We could have done with that for Clash of the Crews on Saturday  :lol:

 

Well done to the Top Dogs in this round, also to Trashbags for pipping my time.

Crew tables up yet?

 

Also i'm curious, since the PS4-PC wil be separate now, how are you going to count individual and crew results from round 5 and up on the yearly basis. Will it be from 0, or will both sides start from the total amount gained in first 4 rounds?

No, i'd said I'll keep PC in this until the end of the season so people hadn't wasted their time on it.

 

Results are likely to be delayed. 

 

I've had a pretty major stomach bug and other than to throw up I haven't been out of bed since Saturday and haven't even been able to keep water down.
