Virtual World Racing.
« on: October 11, 2008, 11:05:30 am »
I've decided to remove both Pro world and Lag world racing. I just don't like how people use the pro or lag worlds to avoid crashes, battles or whatever.

New Feature
World A
Top 5 racers with the highest score since joining the server.
World B
The next 5 racers with the highest score since joining the server.
World C
The remaining racers will be put into this group.

Example
Rac3r has joined the server.  If registered, Temp points would be playerid.
Rac3r has been put into World C.  Because I've just entered the server, I will start in bottom group.
Rac3r has won the race!  Points are then added to my temp score.
Rac3r has been put into World B.  My points are higher than someplayers in World B, so I enter World B, they join World C.
Rac3r has won the race!  Points are then added to my temp score.
Rac3r has won the race!  Points are then added to my temp score.
Rac3r has been put into World A.  My points are higher than someplayers in World A, so I enter World A, they join World B.

heh, I like this idea, i don't think it should be anyones decision to go to a world just to avoid getting rammed accidentally by lag and stuff, I never liked seeing that theres one person in pro, then some1 else joins it, and the person who was in there then immediatly goes to lagx just to avoid any other players, what a load of bullshit lol. This way, people have to earn it and the players are evenly distributed from world to world. Nice idea R  ;)

And grid positions are also in order? Like @ position 1 is the player with the highest score.. and 5 the player of the group with the lowest score?

To be honest i dont like that idea at all!
It will be almost impossible to beat the records on the very old races if you don't want to spent hours on the server to start as first. Also i think it is more fun for every single person to decide in what world he wanna race. If you want a challenge with other people just don't join lag or pro world. And if you want to try to beat records go to a world which is empty.

This is my point, empty world to beat records, means you beat everyone in the server. I understand players like beating highscores, but I think people abuse it to obtain a HUGE advantage over the other racers.

hmm yes but there are always some people in the other worlds normally, too. So the only thing that really will change is that people who spent a lot of time on the server has a big advantage of winning races and beating records against those who just want to race on a few tracks

Remember we brought pro and lag mode to get rid of players who can't race and only hit others.. you wanna create this "chaos" again?

There are now 3 worlds, lag(for people with high pings), normal(for everyone), pro(for people who wanna race with good people to get some harder competition and to make a change on beating the recs, cuz in normal world you always get rammed)..

Ok, I agree with grandmaster and with rac3r, you both have a point. But I agree more with granny, with this new mode; you will get more annoying rams, more frustrated players, you can't beat the recs of older races anymore unless you race like whole day to get first at the grid..

I understand the problem rac3r, you want us to be all at the same level so everyone has a fair change of winning.. but do we need to be fair? Or better; What is fair? I think "fair" is that the better players have their own worlds to drive and make records.. The not so experienced people will never make a change on the records..

A solution to this problem is: make worlds of 3 or 4 or 5 players each, with from every level 1 racer.. just like the UEFA makes the groups for the "groupsround(with 5 teams)".
--> Remember I take player 1 as the player with the most points and player 25 as the player with the least points(or the one with 0 points who joined as last).
Explanation:
- 5 racers each world
When you have 25 players online you have 5 groups.. In each group 5 racers, one from the 5 best racers, 1 from the 5-10th best racers, 1 from the 10-15th best racers, 1 from the 15-20th best racers and 1 from the 20-25th best racers.. Equal groups.. You like the idea?
If there are less then 25 players online you should make groups of 4 racers OR fill up the first group of 5 racers and then make a 2nd group..

25 players online; groups of 5
player 1: group 1
player 2: group 2
player 3: group 3
player 4: group 4
player 5: group 5
player 6: group 1
player 7: group 2
player 8: group 3
player 9: group 4
player 10: group 5
player 11: group 1
player 12: group 2
player 13: group 3
player 14: group 4
player 15: group 5
player 16: group 1
player 17: group 2
player 18: group 3
player 19: group 4
player 20: group 5
player 21: group 1
player 22: group 2
player 23: group 3
player 24: group 4
player 25: group 5

Fill each group up to 5, just like the idea above only when you make a new group it could be the group can't be filled up with 5 racers.

We have moved on from them days, AdrenalineX could never go back to that system, manually plotting positions for cars was a nightmare, also this limited the amount of races, times have changed, Adrenaline is the future.

Don't get me wrong, take a car and race was great but with the amount of players we have these days and the way AdrenalineX uses worlds and grids the players, going back to that method would be like going back to SA-MP 0.1.

Tried the new Class system with a 20+ server. My opion it was fucking ace, you have to win races to get to the best world. Fore sure, the best world had the best racers in it (and me lol). The server now has a new goal, climb to the best world, A Class racing..

Also, I've made it so there is a command so we can easily switch from Class Racing, to Pro/Lag Racing.

/rushhour

Not too sure on the level, have a go see what it says lol

Still needs improving, a few bug invloving players being left out of the screen display showing which Class players are in. 99% working, but I have plans to make it have more sex appeal. lol

You could have another mode built into the script called time trial - that way people can go and set track records without rammers (put them in vworld playerid + 2008). Also I like the way that people who are winning, start at the back of the grid.

Good idea, I wanted to add something like this, but exclude them from actually winning races. So they can obtain records, but their position would be 0. Maybe not fair, but neither was racing in a empty world while normal world had 15 people racing in it.

Yo R.,

There is a little mistake in the world class script.. Going from Class to Class is perfect, but the grid-rankings from race to race don't variate. Problem is the one with the lowest ID in the Class get always pole-position and how higher your ID, how further you go backwards on the grid.. It's not fun for me to get in late, come to class A and start always at last grid position cuz my id is 19 or something..

That was a close vote, although /pro /lag won, I think it was the best thing to do, by creating the ranked worlds.
