2012 Truck Driving Games!
« on: May 09, 2012, 17:45 »
**Cancelled**
Universal is hosting the 2012 Truck Driving Games!

This likely won't be just a one year event, it will probably be hosted once a month with possibly more events added each time or new ones! In the future these games may be club against club! The event will be on or around May 26-27th (subject to change) depending on your timezone. A timer will be added eventually when it's back up.

These games are for fun, there aren't any prizes involved but you will have bragging rights! Anyone may join! These games will test how well you can handle trucks, including a big dumper. You'll have time to try the courses on your own and the event will be one day, but two times on the same day so that people in different timezones can enter. Interfering in the event or person participating will end in disqualification from the event and possible a report for disruption.

There will be a point system based on a few things, the more points you get the better! These points are as follows:
  • Each participant will start with 100 points for every course
  • You will get one practice run
  • Everytime you need to use reverse (expect during accepted reverse areas) you will lose 5 points
  • Everytime you hit something you will lose 5 points
  • The damage you do to your truck will also cost you depending on how hard you hit the object. For example: If you end up with 980 out of 1000 damage at the end of the run you will lose a difference of 20 points. If 960 out of 1000, lose 40 points and so on. This is not including trailer, only your truck
  • Time is also a factor. The fastest time will earn you additional points. These points will be out of the top 10 players in each event round. I will keep track of the rounds and points so you don't have to, just concentrate on doing a perfect, fast time!

Top 10 Players additional Points for best times are as follows:
  • 50
  • 45
  • 40
  • 30
  • 35
  • 30
  • 25
  • 20
  • 15
  • 10



The first course is called "Tight Parking". It will be a parking challenge, not to hard but could be a bit tricky. Here are the rules:
  • You can only drive a Road Train
  • You can use any trailer or the one provided
  • You are allowed to reverse once

Here's what you need to do:



The second driving course is "Quarry Quickness". It will be back and forth from the starting line. Here are the rules:
  • You can only drive a Road Train
  • You can use any trailer or the one provided
  • You are allowed to reverse once

Here's what you need to do:



The third course is called "Reverse, Reverse" which will be at Blueberry Farm. Here are the rules:
  • You can use a petrol or a linerunner.
  • You can only use the dumper trailer, just for added effect

Here's what you need to do:



The fourth course is in San Fierro, it's called "Squeeze Through". It's a tight little track that will require some manuvering. Here are the rules:
  • You can only use a Road Train
  • You can only use any trailer or the one provided

Here's what you need to do:



This is the fifth and final round called "Conquer Chilliad". It will be a race to the top of Mt Chilliad with a Big Dumper. Only one contestant at a time. There is no video, it's pretty straight forward. Staff will be up top waiting at the finish point which will be explained during the event. Here are the rules:
  • You can only use a Big Dumper (There will be one available if you don't have one or borrow from a friend)
  • You can drive up any way you can, take shortcuts etc.
  • You will get one practice round. If you fall off during the real run you may try one more time and only one more time



So that's the event! It will take some time to do all the events if you participate in them, depending on how many contestants show up. The person with the most amount of points out of the two events wins! There shouldn't be a tie but if there is, we will hold a tie breaker for the two.

This event will also require staff. You can join the event as a participant and be a staff member at the same time. Staff may be placed at various parts of the event like guides, coordinators and watching for cheating.

It would be fair to others to remove those during the extent of the event if you have mods on that give you better handling. :)

Thanks man. I'm going to ask someone to ride in the truck with them as they do the course and I'll be watching with camhack so I get a good view of what they're doing. Gotta love /dl for hitting things too lol
