seems i didnt do so well in this weeks challenge lol...

 

is it just me or did luaps time scare some people off from submitting their results?? i knew i would be no where near his impressive time on this course, but never one to shy away from getting involved lol

 

look forward to the dockyard tho, i do like that track and in sports there should be some good times going on.

 

ive also quoted this weeks results as i noticed TBC replaced the ones from last week (understandable for space reasons). ill try and make a point of quoting each weeks results to preserve them :)

That is an amazing time Luapyllier. I wish I could see what line you took. On my run I was full throttle through the entire tarmac section and tapped the brakes at 3 turrns on the dirt section. I used 2 of the banks to make the tight turns and stay on the throttle. and I was still over 2 seconds slower. I suck!

Here is an odd question and even if one person does not agree with it, I am happy to just let it go without a problem. Since the list of cars in any race are limited to a certain number of cars, what is the chance of us using a custom car with no upgrades?

IE: if we wanted to use an Elegy, Surano, Buffalo or Schwartzer with no mods done to it but it is a purchased car.

That is a lot of trust involved but frankly there is nothing on the submitted screen that shows what you ran the settings at. We are all trusting 100% as it is. I for one would be fine with people running stock settup custom cars. It is not like we are winning anything besides an image with our name in it lol.

 

Hopefully the fact that i knocked off five more seconds with my custom bike on that track i won adds some credibility to the winning time.

definitely does give you good credence for the stock time you submitted,

 

personally i dont mind this either, stock is stock at the end of the day i.e no mods... obviously some cars cant be selected with customs off. unfortunately i dont have room in my garage to have a non modded elegy for sports class hahaha ill stick to a stock 9f for that i guess (or maybe a feltzer)

The only problem i have after some thought is as mo points out anyone with a full garage and/or limited cashflow would be barred from using any stock cars not available in the race menu. With a car like the surano as i understand it could be the car with an advantage over the others. Thus it would essentially remove those barred players from contention. So while im fine with the trust issue I dont think it would be fair to the overall membership.

 

Additionally, how do we increase participation for the challenge? 80 members who can run this on thier own time with no need to coordinate with anyone. There is no reason we should have less than 10 entries.

 

I also believe we should refrain from discussing times here prior to final day as it could be turning people away.

possibly a good point...

 

as for increased participation this is a difficult one, comes down to us trying to get more crew members involved and theres no way to force people to participate, its just a bit of fun between those that want to, it wouldnt surprise me if some members dont get a chance to get online all week so will miss the event entirely, as were only in week two we can see how it goes over time and work out stimulus ourselves over time

TBC08, did you receive my time? I sent it via email on Tuesday night.

-------

This is definitely all on the honor/trust system because even right now we have no way of knowing whether someone is using the stock or custom version of the car they race in. Like Luap said, it's nothing more than a pat on the back and a sticker on the front page of a thread on a game forum... so there really isn't any reason to cheat/falsify... not saying it couldn't happen... but seems very unlikely, especially considering the crew that we have built up.

 

I liked the idea, initially, of having specific cars in the challenge so that it's even more so about skill relative to a certain car/track and not who picked the better car or who races better with certain cars, etc.

Not all 80 members read these forums so they don't even know about the challenges. Will need to find a way to communicatre to them through the consoles to reach the non-forum participants. Taking photos and submitting is them could be a bit cumbersome for the casual player and I can see that turning some off.

 

I like seeing the times, it gives me a goal.

its true, although RRR originated from here, not all RRR crew members are GTAF members...

 

we could take it upon ourselves to tell crew mates about it when were in live sessions, recommending they get involved... then there's the social club page (which has the same thign that not everyone regularly accesses it). Id never expect to get all 80 guys/gals running the weekly challenge, i think TBC's head might explode going through all the submissions lol

 

 

Nice find cloud, least we know if R* verify any RRR content it will be cross platform... also a pretty cheap way of R* developing new content,,, get us to make it lol

What do you think is needed to get verified?

 

Didnt i read somewhere that a message in a certain place on the social page for a crew will also be seen by members in game?

 

I dont expect all 80 to participate but 20 or 30 would be nice.

I know we have a place to post up created tracks/etc for the general public of GTAF, but what about a place where we show off our RRR1 tracks or recommend tracks we've found to our RRR1 brothers (or sisters)?

Personally im finding the influx of content already overwhelming and it is only just getting started.

 

Im also gonna say tons of people have been complaining about this content creator and the hiests not having been in at launch like they suposedly promissed...i think those people are wrong. Im thinking rockstar is right on schedule and have been on plan since the start. They released single player for just long enough for average players to complete it before releasing multiplayer they set it so you have additional missions and survivals being added to your map as you progress through the levels. They added a bit of content with the bum pack...now around the time when the average person has seen pretty much all of the missions they added capture missions and the ability to make our own versions of existing mission types. Imagine the hiests will be at least a month maybe two down the road while the hundred of thousands of new missions people make will be run through and verified etc.

 

The only thing that messed up tbier plan is the money and rp hacking that ruined the timeline for so many players.

I am not sure about the PSN network but with Xbox, you can type one message and send it to multiple friends on your list. Luap, you could always make a mass message to all RRR1 people on your friends list about the time trials.

At least this way all xbox user's would know about it. Anyone on the PSN side know if you can do that in mass message form?

I think you are spot on with the concept of R* delaying releases in order to keep us from being completely inundated with content and to also ward off boredom. "Give it to them in small doses..."

hey cloud,

 

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

 

this link should direct to RRR created content. if it directs you to the ps3 side use the drop down at the top right to change to xbox and it will be all the RRR created content in one place for you :)

Hey mo-seph,

 

Thanks, but yea I knew about that... what I was thinking of is more along the lines of actual discussions about the tracks... maybe some insight/advice for the creators, recommending tracks, giving tips for new races, and passing along endorsements for non RRR1 tracks that we've come across and enjoyed.

I did have mine and my brothers times but I didn't get round to improving mine and also ran out of time to submit them. Gills ran a 1.57... which would've put him in a position he'd have been very pleased with, had I not let him down a bit with the submission. Mine was rubbish so you're missing nothing there, wanted to do it again on the Akuma but... oh well.

We'll probably both try and get some times in for this one.

Does scare me a bit, how fast some of you are gonna do it. Really technical track and some of those racing lines will make for massive time shaving in a pro run.

As far as "Red Rum Approved Races" I've added the races created by Red Rum members in the #2 post of the Red Rum Racing thread under Crews & Gangs. If another thread sounds like the better deal, where would we put on that's not already lead by RRR and wont chance getting locked.

While I like the RRR approved races idea, I honestly just want to know where I can say "hey guys... you should really try this track out!" and it not be completely O/T. :)

I'm just going to throw this out there. My brother and I where talking about this the other day.

 

How would everyone (mostly active of course) feel about a Red um Racing: GTAO Facebook page?

 

I know not everyone wants the their personal names, info and such readily available to randoms. This was my first concern. Just a thought.

Well I myself do not use a real facebook account. I much prefer anonymity. I realize that if anyone is good enough, anything can be found but to the common person, they do not need to know my name. I do use a fake name facebook so if something came down to it, I can access a page but do not expect me to go using it everyday.

I use fb daily and have had a few groups that I've been in on there for other games (Madden, NCAA Football, etc). It works great and you can set up how often you receive notifications and where you receive them to.

 

However, a lot of people are against Facebook for various reasons.. so I doubt it would fly.

My only concern with a dedicated thread is the mods here closed all UGC Related threads when they created the pinne. Topic. I love the idea of constructive feedback but wouldnt want us to start a topic only for it to be locked...

 

That (@cloud) said my vote would be to give feedback throigh our "crews and gangs" thread. Its a general RRR topic and discussing contrustive feedback on each others tracks would be a nice positive way to utilise that thread, with things here being related to the weekly challenge

 

As for an fb page I had thought about it myself but then remembered I deleted my fb account and that some members dont use FB lol. RRR seems to have a large contingent of people who are protective of their anonymity for various personal or professional reasons, me included. But theres a benefit to an Fb page even if we dont all actively use it, happy to discuss in priv with anyone thats interested (@TBC)

 

Theres always the option of a static webpage (as opposed and RRR forum) and weekly mailing list, but that would take some management
