    TDU:C Christmas Gumball 3000 Challenge (PC & 360) [[Post Time Zone Please]]

    The "much loved" TDU:C Gumball 3000 Challenge is back!

    Allthough there were only 5 members who participated in the last competition, there was alot of interest, and other matters unfortunately got in the way of their participation :( However those who did take part, we all enjoyed the racing and cruising!

    I'd like to say congratulations on CarboyX for winning the last one. And hopefully with a few more members who have returned to TDU, this Gumball will be bigger and better!.

    The proposed route and slightly new rules are in the post below.

    I have opened this one to the Xbox 360 people again, even though only 1 member asked to take part in the last one.

    Anyone from the 360 group can change the rules reagring the 360 Gumball. And also I would need one of you to "take-over" the 360 side of things.


    Updates:
    26/11/07:
    - PC Applicant Availability chart uploaded
    03/12/07

    • The cars can be anything you want, the more outrageous the colour the better. So start mixing up those paints and prepare to burn some rubber.
    • We will wait for eachother at each checkpoint so we don't get lost. And we have about a 5 minute break. When the last person arrives.
    • GPS - you may use it. However you can only map out to get it when everyone is at the place - I will say when you can map out to get the GPS :) - But beware, you map out at your own risk, if you cannot re-warp back to me or anyone who has warped to me .... in the 5 minute break, then we will start without you, and you will be forced to forfit that stage!
    • Please try and vary the car you sign up for ... as a cruise with 6 Lambos would be a bit boring, if you see someone else in the car you want to drive, please state another car you would like to use, however you don't have to - duplicate cars are welcome, but not desired :)
    • No short-cuts are allowed (however small). As this gives an unfair advantage. Also, you cannot drive on the wrong side of the road, if this means your journey is shorter, however some of you do like to drive against the flow of traffic down roads, I will allow this, however you mjst not gain any time or shorter distance from this.
    • Days 1 & 2 will be C Class or below, and Day 3 will be A class or below (to sort the men from the mice ;)) And please do not come in the same cars as last time - to add variety :D
    • Harcode Mode is allowed, and welcomed. You are allowed to use it any day. However If you wish to change into it or out of it, do so at the end of each stage, and you'd better be quick, as there is about a 5 minute break at each stage.
    • Do not crash into people on purpose, as this is unfair. If I see or people tell me that you have done it on more than 1 occasion (which has pushed someone off the road - whether it be intentional or not). Repetative ramming will result in a point penalty.
    • Any Rule breaking (may) result in a point deduction - depending on my mood :)p) and the severity of the break.
    • I am currently still making small changes within the race, so the total route isn't finished yet. Any improvements you think could be done, please say. :)
    • I have planned a route, and it's fairly long, and the idea is to complete the route over 2 or 3 days during the school Christmas holidays (19th December - 2nd January).
    • The points scoring: 1st = 10pnts / 2nd = 8pnts / 3rd = 6pnts / 4th = 5pnts / 5th = 4pnts / 6th = 3pnts / 7th = 2pnts / 8th = 1pnt
    • Video on Directions for Stage 7 (The black line) - Excuse poor quality rendered video.
    Stage Times (Gallardo Spyder | Stage 3 | C Class):

    Stage 1 - 22mins
    Stage 2 - 12mins
    Stage 3 - 10mins
    Stage 4 - 28mins
    Stage 5 - 22mins
    Stage 6 - 06mins
    Stage 7 - 15mins

    Stage 8 - 15mins

    Best times for me would be 5-8GMT. It's also a bit hard for me to promise to be able to play in some holiday days since I'm sure I have something else to do than to play (24th and 25th especially).

    Everyone has been entered to the list. I know we have 8 people, but from last experience, not everyone can get to the Gumball at same time, so I will finalise the times for PC when I get the last dregs :)p) enter.

    Well I will work out the best time when I have everyone who wishes to enter. We already have 8 people, but I'm waiting for the usual suspects (S71NG3R etc to say if they want to take part)

    OK, well if the 360 gumball does go ahead, then whom ever "takes over" can organise the best time for you lot to compleet the Gumball :)

    Yeah feel free to go in H/C mode :)

    OK, i've put you down in the list for the 360'ers.

    Let's go again ! :)
    Excepted the 24th and the 31th, i'm free all the time (for the moment ;) )
    8PM (or later) is ok for me ;)

    The route looks long and good :) But its seems to have lot of "highway" style road (= fullspeed), its could be more interesting to go through moutain roads or other more curved roads ;) I added some idea on the map :

    @ Telos - cool :)

    @ S71NG3R - Added to list :)

    @ -Lr-Speed - I like the mountain ideas. It's just unfortunate that some people don't know how to read a map, and normally go the wrong way, as it's not the standard GPS route. I definately will look into making some routes more "mountainy". As highway racing does get broign, and doesn't really test the driver's driving ability.

    As I say, I will lok in various routes, including more mountains. Just getting a slightly different route from the last Gumball is hard, and also making the route "n00b friendly" is hard also. :D

    @ Everyone
    - I've made it so we can have to a max - 16 people (2 groups) as this will be hard. I may order it ability wise (prob not) or first come first serve, or into time zone differences. I will see :)

    New Map up with more mountainy bits.

    E: the map has the '5' marker in wrong place. It will eventually be placed with the '6', as they are both the same palce.
    However I'm off to play TDU now :p
