    The Buckyball Racing Club Presents: Total Recall 2 (27.08.3302 - 04.09.3302)



    It's back!

    Following the success of the last Total Recall event we've been contacted once again by the manufacturers of TrakMark tyres. Firstly they wanted to express their gratitude for our previous data gathering exercise which helped them resolve the issues with their old SRV tyres (which weren't leaving any tracks) and release a new range of tyres which are now in use throughout the galaxy. Not only have these allowed commanders to draw genitalia on planets in every system from Kunti to Acokwang (yeah yeah OK, I know you can't land there but work with me here) but they also helped save commander Bomba Luigi from certain death, when he got stranded on the surface of planet Wilson and was able to mark out an SOS that was visible from space.

    https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/268862-Help-I-need-Ship-Rats%21

    Alas not everyone has been quite so pleased with their new tyres. TrakMark (who have stated that the tyres are good for at least 10,000km) are currently fighting a number of law suits from commanders claiming the new tyres led to the destruction of SRV's after driving just a few kilometres away from their home. Normally this would be easy to disprove but unfortunately it turns out that all of these claims come from settlements who's placement is somewhat, ahem, challenging to say the least.

    That's where you guys come in. TrakMark have sponsored a new race to prove that not only is it possible to easily drive at least 5km away from each of these settlements but that it's possible to do so under racing conditions.

    If you're interested in taking part in this event then sign-up by registering your intent to race in the thread below stating which class(es) you're planning to race in and the type of ship you'll be using. The TrakMark tyre company have also requested that you sign a written statement declaring that you will make no legal claims against their company in the event of any loss of SRV.

    The Rules

    - Start at Kirkwood Vision in Cernobog.

    - Open the right-hand Status/Statistics panel and take a screenshot that shows your current SRV distance travelled (you'll need to scroll to the bottom of the Statistics section to find this).





    - Take a screenshot showing the time on the station clock, launch and GO!

    - Fly to each of the four settlements listed for the race class you're entering.

    - On landing at each one take another screenshot showing the station clock and then deploy your SRV.

    - Drive away from the settlement, in whatever direction seems best to you. Target the settlement so that its distance is visible. When the distance shown is at least 5km, take another screenshot that shows both the distance and the time and then recall your ship and fly to the next destination.

    Note for pilots who took part in Total Recall 1: The rules have changed slightly here since most settlements have now reduced their minimum ship recall restriction zones to just 4km which TrakMark tyres considers to be an insufficient drive distance to adequately prove their point.

    - Once you've repeated this process for all four settlements fly to the designated finish line for your race class (note: they're different), land and take a final screenshot showing the time on the station clock.

    - Lastly, take another screenshot showing your SRV distance travelled which should now be around 20Km (0.02Mm) more than the original distance (don't worry if it's not exact).





    Email your set of screenshots
    (there should be 12 in total) to alec.turner@buckyballracing.org.uk (I'd prefer it if you could upload these to somewhere like imgur.com and then just send me a link to the album) along with the following information:


    • your commander name
    • your forum name (if different)
    • the race class you're entering
    • the type of your ship
    • the name of your ship
    • the total elapsed time from start-time to finish-time (this can be calculated by feeding the times shown on those two screenshots into the following website: http://www.timeanddate.com/date/timeduration.html#)

    Submissions will be accepted from 00:00:00 (in-game time) on Saturday 27th August 3302 until 23:59:59 on Sunday 4th September 3302. You can make as many attempts as you like during this time.



    Race classes


    There are two clases for this race.

    Unlimited

    Fly any type of ship you like with any modifications you like (in a way I'd rather rule out Engineer mod's but until we get 2.2 and module storage I realise that this is a bit of a pain for those of you that already have them fitted so what the hell).
    Use of Jumponium is prohibited.

    Start: Kirkwood Vision / Cernobog

    Fly to the following settlements in the order given:

    • Erikson Terminal . Xibalba
    • Forward Horizons / Orrere
    • Parker Beacon / BD-02 4304
    • Cenker Exchange / Arietis Sector BQ-Y D114

    Finish: Ramsbottom Hub / Segovan

    Regulation Hauler

    Fly a Hauler, outfitted as follows:

    https://coriolis.io/outfit/hauler/0p...ation%20Hauler

    If you're feeling bold, you are permitted to replace the 2C fuel tank with a 1C fuel tank which will increase the jump range slightly but ..


    Start: Kirkwood Vision / Cernobog

    Fly to the following settlements in the order given:

    • Erikson Terminal / Xibalba
    • Gwynn Vision / Theta Indi
    • Cardano Gateway / G 35-15
    • Reinmuth Landing / Exioce

    Finish: Extra Refinery / Azrael

    *NEW* Although I basically trust you guys I guess TrakMark would appreciate it if you could include a screenshot of the right-hand Modules panel to prove that you've stuck to the regulation Hauler build ..


    .. which should look something like this.






    *NEW* Big Air Challenge

    As a bonus challenge, there will be a separate award for the commander who manages to attain the greatest altitude in their buggy during a run. To enter this challenge simply state the altitude reached in your submission email and include an additional screenshot showing both the altitude and the time (the latter to verify that the Big Air occured during the course of the run).







    Still confused? Here's a video from Total Recall 1 to give you a better sense of what the race is all about.







    That's it. Good luck commanders! (you're going to need it)

    Oh, and if people fancy posting some photos showing their buggy parked next to their ship, perhaps with something artistic drawn out using tyre tracks, then the TrakMark tyre company have promised to include the best ones in their September newsletter.

    Lastly, for those of you hoping for another, vaguely tenuous link to Total Recall, I'll leave you with a song ...

    Oh. My. God!

    I'm out of rep but off the record that, my friend, is a work of genius. I laughed the entire way through it.

    But seriously ... yes exactly. Everyone needs to sign that.

    P.S. a pace car time for the regulation Hauler run has now been set at 00:56:14 (just so you know roughly how long to expect it to take). I apologise in advance for the length of this race but I had to work with the list of interestingly situated settlements I had available settlements involved in the various TrakMark lawsuits and, alas, they appear to be scattered to the eight corners of the human bubble.

    Could you just give him a prize already?

    This, this should become standard disclaimer before every Buckyball event!

    As for the race, thank you very much Alec for the invitation, this is absolutely something I'd want to participate in, given I can overcome two little obstacles:

    1 - at the moment I'm about halfway from Jacques to Sag A*, and once arrived there I'll still have to endure the bulk of the voyage home. It's a messy affair when you're confined in the reassuring bulkheads of a T-7.
    2 - things with my ill-famed replacement joystick aren't going that well, it's seriously starting to lose right-yaw functionality, those last days I've found myself more than once doing left-handed circles on planets, not a good preamble for a srv race.

    I'll do my best (read as: I'll give silly excuses to my lady to stay at home) to give it a shot before the deadline

    I'll try to get an Unlimited Run in first and depending on how that goes and on how much time I have next week I'll give the Reg Hauler a try aswell. Not sure about which ship to take for Unlimited yet, although I have a feeling that it's either going to be Fireball or the Falcon

    Intent to race:

    CMDR Raiko
    The Nomad (Asp Explorer)
    Unlimited.

    And in the unlikely event that I get enough time:

    CMDR Raiko
    The Hum Bug
    Regulation Hauler.

    I'm still at Jaques after The Long Haul, and I'm hoping to make it back to make a Jaques run in the Elite Olympics on Friday night, so I'm likely to be running this one on the final weekend.

    before i sign, my lawyer has asked for more clarity in paragrpah 1 ponit (c): she was very happy about the specific inclusion of UA bombing. Her words "What the does etc. mean? I can't protect you with that flimflamery! i need kangaroos tied down, not bouncing around with no regard for racers wellfare. What is etc.?" obviously i know it means 'stuff' but she is adamant that my racing keys aren't leaving the safe until she's happy about liabilities, herewiths, pursuants and damages - mostly damages!

What is etc.?" obviously i know it means 'stuff' but she is adamant that my racing keys aren't leaving the safe until she's happy about liabilities, herewiths, pursuants and damages - mostly damages!
    Trakmark legal has informed me you're welcome to cross out the "etc". They feel they're covered pretty well by the "not limited to" earlier in the sentence. ;p

    I'm in!

    I see a chance to revive two old ships! This looks like a job for Regina Noctis (from the first total recall) and Vita Brevis (from buckyball run 10).

    Welcome back everyone!

    Quick notification re: the loadout for the regulation Hauler loadout. I'm considering downgrading its fuel tank to a 1C (more RANGE + more DANGER = more FUN). I plan on making a test run tomorrow morning so watch this space and/or the Fuel Rats IRC channel for further news on this.

    OK, well the good news is that it is possible with a 2t tank. The bad news is that it's TIGHT ..





    As a qualified Fuel Rat I feel it would be irresponsible to force people into a running-out-of-fuel type situation so instead what I'm going to do is make the use of a 1C fuel tank optional in the Regulation Hauler class (options? in a regulation class!?! I know, radical right?).

    I'll update the rules later this morning (got a train to catch).

    As usual the wording re: how to actually find the race (Commanders interested in taking part should check their local community events forum for further details) has been removed (which is kinda irritating) but still ... yay!

    Edit: and prime location in the launcher (briefly) ..
