Red Rum Racing: Racing Events (PS3)

Recommended Posts

LuapYllier

Interesting. Count CLAW in on the competition. The only two comments i have are that racing with othere has pros and cons, they can get in the way of a perfect line at times and they can also provide slipstreams which could give an edge. Secondly, the no custom cars is the only iffy rule. There is really no way to cheat the other settings but this one requires a lot of trust. It also sucks as I am quite used to the handling and speed of my modded rides...but i guess i will run some practice laps. You didnt include a car class in the challenge by the way...intentional?

Car class and track will be posted later on this evening.

 

I agree about the iffy rule with custom cars thing. I'm still trying to figure out that one. I was thinking along the lines of having another person in the race that doesn't actually race so they can verify the settings that no custom cars where aloud. Given it couldn't be just any person cause then people would just get there friends to sit in.

 

Wish there was a "Details" option at the end of the race with the leader board the would show the settings. But that will never happen so... Any and all thoughts are welcome.

 

P.S- Changed the solo rule. Good point on that.

So vinewood nights 4 laps is not the upcomming weeks challenge?

 

I look at it this way, we are both picking people for our crews that are clean ,respectful and hopefully honest and following gentlemans rules. There is no prize, just a bit of bragging rights and good practice/ training on selected tracks. It is more or less just to make us all better at what we do. Anyone we get to spectate is going to be a friend or crewmate so it really does not add anything to the trust value. I say we just set the rules and just trust that they are followed.

really like the weekly challenge idea, its a good way to always have an event that people can get involved in, at Times that suit us as individuals and gives us our own litle challenge in the game... Over time it will also be a good way of knowin who pur consistent racers are, which if we do crew vs crew events in the future is something worth knowing... Also bribgs both consoles together in a unified way..

 

Out of interest are we gonna keep a league table?? If theres a longer term objective it gives us reason to keep comin back evrry week to partocopate in the next event... It would potentially be difficult woth varying numbers of racers each week but I think its likely we could get 10 regulars... That bein said we could scale points from 10-1 for the top ten racers... Everyone below that scorin 0 (as it would be impossible to give Everyone points)

 

That way if we have less than 10 its still 10 for 1st 9 for 2nd etc... We could retain a league table in the OP Thats updated each week... That way if your at the top ypu need to be retaining your league standing with continued participation... Thoughts??

Vinewood was just an example of how the winner of that track was. Sorry about the confusion.

 

I like the table idea. I usually have a lot of down time at work so making a table wouldn't be a problem. Just figuring out how to set up would need some time.

Also i was thinking earlier of devising some crew games we can play...

 

obviously we all have alot of race time under our belts... but ive had quite a giggle when we have all been in freemode (invite only) and having some impromptu race with the obvious messing about at the end of each race... im wondering if we can devise some of our own game types...

 

An example would be like CTF (as an interim until R* release it) but a CTB, Capture the Bounty... we split into two teams... each team has 1 player with a preset bounty... the remaining players act as bodyguards... first to claim the bounty wins..

 

a variance of this would be MVP.. Most Valued player... again two teams... Hunters and Bodyguards... The MVP has a bounty set on them... then then have to be transported to a specified location... the hunters have to kill the MVP,,, the bodyguards have to protect the MVP at all costs... obviously the prize being the bounty (this one is slightly easier as If im in the lobby i can set the bount CTB would need two bounty setters)

 

other ideas i though of were we all start in the water off vespucci beach... set an impromptu race (if it lets us while not in cars) for a waypoint... then hell for leather to the finish line... using only stolen cars, no PV's allowed and no holds bared, you can sticky bomb, rpg, snipe, whatever you like... ... just to add a little variance to our usual impromtu racing..

 

Thooughts?

Absolutely love these ideas! I started a crew when I first got GTAV (BrBa) and I bet they would be down for something like this as well.. for those of you on Xbox.

 

I used to do stuff like this in GTA 4 with a few friends... we called them the GTA Olympics and it was basically a slew of events, such as:

 

Helicopter Jousting - no shooting, just tactical ramming to knock the opponent's heli out of the sky. The most fun is when you do it far out in the ocean so the loser has to swim all the way back. :)

 

Boat Jousting - no shooting, just tactical ramming to flip the opponent's boat over.

 

Bike/Cycle Jousting - no shooting, just tactical ramming to knock your opponent to the ground.

 

Skyscraper Sniper Wars - Use helicopters to land each player on opposing buildings and then try to survive and snipe your opponent off.

 

Manhunt - One player gets a 45 second head start to either hide or race/fly away... everyone else tries to kill that player. The player that succeeds becomes the new hunted. It was really fun when the hunted players would hide in buildings or bunkers with traps set up for the hunters.

 

Choppers vs Motorcycles - Typically we'd do this at the airport where one person would be in a chopper while every one else raced laps on cycles. You could either shoot or slice the cyclist with your blades and whoever was killed on bike/cycle then became a chopper. The last one standing on bike/cycle was the winner... then all the choppers would take him out. :)

 

Swingset Slingshot - The good old GTA 4 swingset from hell... we would try all sorts of methods to slingshot ourselves as far as possible.

 

Freefall Targeting - Jump out of a heli with no parachute and try to land in a pond or pool. 100 points for landing in and surviving, 50 points for landing in and dying, 25 points for striking the edge (nearly landing in).

 

 

 

 

 

I have a four day weekend coming up in a couple of days and no plans but to drink fashionable adult beverages and play games. I can host or participate in events if is so desired.

 

 

I have never seen or heard anyone use this word in a sentence before. Impressive, well played.

with a cacophany of good clean racers

 

I concur.. absolutely love that word! :)

I love working with spreadsheets, so I would be happy to keep tabs of everything and just post up weekly. Might it be best to start up a separate thread where the OP is updated weekly with the standings?

Oh Cloud, they are magnificent ideas! I think a GTA olympics event would be a fine idea.

 

I'd be up for joining RRR events in the future. I'm away all wknd coming so won't be online then but can usually be relied on between 9/10pm-1am GMT, any and every day I can. Will keep an eye out for dates (I'm not seeing the 'above pic'...).

 

I'll have a crack at the challenge too. Trust issue won't come into it for me as I'm 100% confident that my times won't trouble the top of the table.... but I'll abide by whatever rules are set.

 

1 thing, how much of a handicap would it be not having a mic in these things? I should dig one out I guess, I hate msging on PS3. Tend to use Whatsapp to keep up with my mates.

 

Oh, and earlier point about emblems. All my cars are emblem-ated but I've rolled under the RRR banner the last couple of days and they're not there now. It was said about crew rank being different to character rank so maybe that's why? I swear it said my crew rank was 65 yesterday, bit odd since I've just joined and my character is 75....

No handicap at all for not having a mic. Really it just makes things easier as far as communication. We usually just go with flow.

 

Crew rank and character rank are 2 completely different stats. You join a new crew, you restart for that crew. I believe you are able to go back to an old crew and still have the same crew rank.

 

And the info on the weekly challenge will be posted momentarily.

If I can get some of the other members of the IMSA crew together, I would be willing to do some things like this. I am kind of liking the ideas of using Impromptu races, since money is gimped in normal racing now, impromptu's gives the edge of not having to do loading screens. Kind of sucks you can't check times though.

 

Yes, your REP stays with you even when switching active crews.

Ok, thanks. So if I rank up a bit with RRR my motors will pick up the emblem? Don't intend to shell out for 9 of them so it would be nice if they just appeared, look a bit bare after growing used to having one.

Funny thing actually, totally OT. After putting them on my 1st few cars, they started just popping themselves on new cars when I rolled into LSC and did any modification, saved me a lot of coins. Still do I think, my new Karin Rebel has one I swear I didn't pay for. Flip side is that they've been locked for clothes forever, I'll take that....

Mr bossman...in light of recent developments I would like to suggest a change to the thread title if thats possible. You now have an Xbox division. :)

 

cloud those sound like fun...look forward to it. You should get that other crew to consolidate with us and all work/ play tovether.

Hey guys...

 

I second the vote to change the topic title if its possible... obviously this thread started from our first Red Rum Event, which was ps3 only, but with a new thread being created for the weekly challenge and our expansion into the xbox side of things i think we might be missing a trick if we let this thread die, given that its been a "hot" topic quite a few times on the GTAF and stands as testament to the activity in our friendly gentlemanly crew...

 

So I propose that the Weekly Challenge thread is retained for events, which could include both the weekly challenge and the ad-hoc organised events/meets... But this thread could be retained for just communication purposes, idea sharing, crew updates etc, A quick topic title and edit of the Op should sort this relatively quickly and will retain the history of our discussions.

 

Then the Weekly thread can be updated with the weekly challenge, plus any one off events we decide to run.. I know managing two threads will be twice the work, buuuut, it does keep both threads "on-topic" and gives that differentiation between our weekly challenge and the more general discussion we have... as i work in forums i know how powerful long standing and regularly active threads can be so it would be a shame to see this one resigned to the ethos of dead threads given how active it has been and how instrumental in the huge growth of RRR1 that its had.,..

 

That said we would all need to refrain from too much generalist discussion on the weekly event thread, ensuring any comments there are pertaining to the events specifically, and other discussion could remain here

 

 

EDIT : Also im hoping to share some of the snapmatic crew photos that ive been taking, with a view of taking some more (when ive finished uploading them to photobucket so i can clear my in game gallery and can free up some space for new pics).... Id really love to get 16 of us in a lobby for a big group photo... obviously the Xbox guys could arrange something similar... The questions im wondering should we start a pic only thread (im happy to manage to take pressure off TBC08) or just use this thread for pic sharing etc...

I agree about this thread though. A lot of good talk and info. I would hate to see it be deleted.

 

A Red Rum Thread for pictures and such would be great. Just a general "This is our spot".

yea those voltic do tend to flip at the smallest little bump in the road, the amount of times i used to completely barrel roll mine because i hit a kerb was unreal...

 

Do you want me to start a "Red Rum Racing : Crew Photo Gallery" thread?? I know youve alot on your plate hahah

 

Ive got a couple i can post in there.. id love to get one with as many of us as possible wheelspinning as we all seem top pick different coloured wheel smoke... i recall one of our first meets we had 4 or 5 of us in a row each with a different colour and it looked awesome... the question is who would take the pic lol

If you goto the R* Social Club crew site there is a Snapmatic section that has photos crew memmbers have taken.

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/red_rum_racing/games/gtav/snapmatic

 

 

learn something new everyday... didnt realise it did crew tags on photos too...

 

but, my reasoning behind suggesting a specific thread here is because i maxxed out my snapmatic (96 photos) so ive had to upoad them all to photo bucket and will need to delete some photos to make room for new crew pics... although my photobucket gives me a personal history of all my gta snapmatic photos here is a much easier (and more public) place to view them.

 

although now ive got an easy way to like other crew members photos and see what you guys have been upto while im not around :p

 

 

PS, i love this pic you took of mine and your cars ToBeContinued08

You need to make sure that the picture thread finds an appropriate section of the forum though. Having one nice big thread in multiple sections will increase exposure. Im also a little worried about using this thread for general discussion while it is in events category.

 

How are you uploading your pics? I have the photobucket but getting from xbox to pc is escaping me.

I have my own domain name that I put my pictures on. I also use my capture card to capture pictures. Hopefully when we start doing some events with more than solo I can start recording the entire race.

See that's my concern as well. Maybe a new thread in the Geoups & Meetup section?? Post our pictures there and it might entice more people to join us. Which, in turn, will help add people to the approved racers thread. Lol. If you can't tell I love/ live in the thread.

i pretty much permanantly have approved racers, RRR Events Ps3, RRR events ps3 & Xbox open and hitting f5 persistently...

 

ToBeContinued08, are you able to move the thread, being that you are the OP...

 

I think the RRR1 Ps3 & Xbox should stay in the Events Section...

 

RRR1 ps3 could do with being renamed RRR Discussion and moved to Gameplay, given that its general crew related discussion on gameplay (which si where Approved Racers lives for obvious reasons, but thats not crew specific)

 

The pics thread could live in the Groups/Meetups section... Showing our Meet ups and group activities...

 

Ive got a thread in the Recruitment section (which im not allowed to bump any more frequently than 24 hours.. but there's no restriction to others commenting on it "ahem")

 

That only leaves missions, troubleshooting and Guides that we dont have a specific presence in....

 

Thoughts???
