Real time and weather races
« on: June 07, 2010, 08:50:53 pm »
Hey everyone. I've made some real time and weather races before and now I want to let everyone make their own. Races like London, Bristol, New_York and Las_Vegas are special because they actually change depending on the time and weather of that location. So if it's night time and raining in London, and someone loads that race, it'll be nightime and raining in the race too.

So, here's how to make your race a realtime and weather race:
1. Choose a location
2. Go to Google and search for "weather in (location)". If there's no result at the top or there's no Current: then it can't be used and you'll have to try somewhere close that has the "Current:" thing. more info: http://imgur.com/u2Rhj.png
3. Search for your city on http://timeanddate.com/ If you can find your city, save the city page (eg. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=136 ) If you can't find your city, find somewhere closeby. It doesn't matter if it's not that close, that only matters for the weather.
4. Make the race and hope it gets accepted. You can make an MTA race too if you want.
5. Once ALL this is done, post in this thread with:
  • Race name (this MUST be accepted already, if it's not accepted then don't bother) (Example: London) This should be the same name as the city.
  • What you searched for in Google to get the weather (Example: 'weather in london')
  • timeanddate.com city URL (Example: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=136 )

I will then convert it.
GOOD LUCK
