I just set up a funny racing game, hope you can help me develop on that.

I've lined hundreds of chimneys (obj 61), spaced like 20 meters one from the next. 40 meters apart, I've placed another line of chimneys. The two lines look like a 1 km trench from above.

between each chimneys I've then placed a 60 meter barrage baloon with the back toward the center of the trench. This result in a 1km tunnel, 60 meters high and 40 wide. The objects look something like that from above:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
o o
<><>
o o
<><>
o o
<><>
o o
<><>
</pre>

It is really funny to fly high speed inside it shouting "use the force luke" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am planning to build a U shaped circuit in such a way, placing recon targets evenly spaced.. think it may be a fun kind of race game.

Now seriously, do I have too much free time? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

Edit: Added code tags to make your ascii pic work.

I only once flew an online air-race, but THIS really sounds interesting http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Why is 6 afraid of 7? Cause 7 8 9!

Interesting idea. Does it cause any noticeable affects on frame rate with all those objects?

would make some excellent crashes to watch on tracks http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think it would be funny to prepare huge circuits builded in such a way, perhaps a bit wider, and use them to race.

we could make big ovals, a bit wider than this tunnel, with just a 200m gap on the roof to enter and exit the circuit

I'm starting right now hehe http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif

S!

ps
no RS_Shiesty, no problem with fps, but I'm using a really small map and got quite an high end pc

Think of the huge crashes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Would like to try when you get the track up.

Maybe even with a few racers in it too.

If you do make a circuit and the chimneys and the track a little wider, I think a new kind of racing will pop up on HL. Very cool indeed.

Ok, I've started working on it using excel to create all the object coordinates. It works well with the straight parts of the track but I'm having problem with the turns and think I'll do them manually right now..

I sadly think to know the answer, but lets try anyway: is it possible in the full mission editor to copy and paste group of objects?

Maybe you don't even have to do the whole course that way. Passing through "tunnels" maybe would even intensivy gameplay, when everybody wants to be the first in the next tunnel ? I mean something more like a parcourse?

Par course - like a series of gates?

Great idea.

Yeap, a real good one. And it will make building it a lot easier. I'll finish it tonite:

3 parallel 2 km tunnels, 100 meters wide. That should allow overtaking inside the tunnel.

Each tunnel could be 500 meters apart.

Any other idea? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Huge ovals will be a blast.Think about huge crashes,smoke everywhere,you can't see the walls and so on.I'll join a race like this anytime http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, here is the first attempt.

I've tried with the parcourse idea proposed by Capt.LoneRanger. There are 4 tunnels, each 2kn long and 100 meters wide. From above they look like a loose square.

The tunnels are quite easy to modify, but it is better to do that directly on the mis file:

One of the tracks used for races has a solid roof of warehouse-looking buildings over a mountain gap. Another idea for a roof would be using the castle object in the FMB, since it already has a height to it.
