Do you want to create a movie with MANY cars?

Post by kristjan » 13 May 2006 22:04

EDIT:

For some times ago, i started a project what is based on beating old xk records, or as mutch as the TMN render can take.

That track is called "Splitting Hairs".
I got around 1300 replays.. waiting for more :twisted:

Hope as many as possible will save replays for this project! (have to bo done offline :( )

The rules are easy:
  • Use whatever skin you want (but no new 3dModel)
  • No slower time then 30 sec
  • Vary your routs, but as soon as you hit the roof/road, drive to the finish
  • And ther's no such thing (if you stick to the rules) as a bad replay
Some more information is on the track page!

Thanks! :)


Replays from:
  • Ariane ---------- 18
    BFM_SPDSTA ------ 5
    Carpenter ------- 44
    DarkSide -------- 675
    Ferril ---------- 24
    Fez ------------- 56
    Grizzler -------- 93
    Gunthahaha ------ 20
    Habbla ---------- 35
    Hook ------------ 4
    iBlueHH --------- 20
    Jampa ----------- 114
    JumperJack ------ 48
    Kanye ----------- 72
    LoKi ------------ 102
    MiniGod --------- 451
    R3aLitY --------- 100
    Remo ------------ 16
    Scottmc --------- 107
    SKB ------------- 201
    Zeke129 --------- 12

    All in one ------ 2217
Please say if something is wrong, or missing!!!

Old post:


I am about to start a project where we shold play an save replays, on one single track, so in the end we get something like 500-1000 cars driving, like "the 1k procect", just that this could be Nations, and not Sunrise.

If you got ideas for track, please post it here!

The track must not be so mutch more than 20/30 sec. long!!

Thanks!

We will do this together.. so one of you can create 10 cars, some create 100 cars, or so.. you dont have to create 100+ cars! You just send you replays to me, and i'll create movie, or anyone else! :)

Its easy! Please say if you'r with, or if you whant your 30 sek. track in the movie!

If you have created the track, you dont need to record replays! ;)

And, the movie would lock so mutch cooler if it was a flip flap track, or jump track! :P

Try map Pro-A1

Its a nice winding map that really seems to sperate the boys from the men when racing. There's a nice loop, and towards the end, the track splits in 2 for an interesting finish.

Here's one I made this week using my newest release and 10 replays that were posted before TM-EX Nations went down:
http://www.scottmc.com/2006/05/vertical ... enged.html
It's about a minute long.
Here's links to two others from mine and bkb98's tracks Everything Zen and Everything's Cool:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 2644661355
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 6035373070
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 4271111586

To get the best effect you need to have a track where the designer did a really good outro. The one I did for Zen is flawed, not that I had noticed before it was released. The camera passes through the S-wall and it bugs me everytime I see it, one of these days I need to fix it, but it's already been downloaded 800+ times...

I posted a link to a zip file of all my nations tracks in the Tracks thread. I luckily still had it on my desktop from updating the trackpack on tm-exchange recently so it's updated with all my tracks.

I think only 2 or 3 of them are under 40 seconds long though as I aim to make them 45 seconds to 1 minute 15 seconds for online play in either time attack or teams play. So they might not work for your project here.

But the videos with 6-10 cars are still fun to watch.

Here's a short 20-30 second track I made just for this type of thing.
http://home.comcast.net/~scottmccreary/ ... llenge.Gbx
I ran 20-30 replays and posted a sample movie here:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 8330646862
Should we use just the standard Nations car, perhaps in a few diffferent nations colors? In mine I used a custom one but maybe it would feel more Nations like to use the nations car? The sample video was just thrown together quickly, and doesn't show all the cool angles I could see in the edit replay mode.
I'm open to using a different track, just let us know which one you want to use and give us a link to it.
