Thread: The BRC presents a Race for Long Range Ships: Nebulocity (3-11 June 3303)

    Hey Jhyrryl...

    I think your google form needs a little bit of tweaking... one of the questions asked was that if the race was run in reverse, and my reply was NO... yet at the detailed time submission page it won't let me skip when the "reversed run" page is shown (page 14).

    Anyway... yay, submitted my first run It's not a fantastic run though, and the time's more than I'd like.... so I'll probably get another run in in a couple of days

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    Found it and fixed. Thanks! You get credit for testing the form.

    Thanks Couldn't we work something else out, like um... knocking a couple mins off my time? *whisper*

    EDIT: - Well I made a second run just now... knocked 6 mins off my time I'll submit it later...

    And oh yes, I used the Tobii 4C for this run, "just to see how it'd be". Well, I can tell you one thing - it's as good as/as bad as FaceTrackNoIR. Lots of wobble, losing track of my face, screen jumping all about for no reason whatsoever (my head / eyes aren't moving).

    Yeah I'll use TrackIR for my next run (if I do make another run).

    My runs have been full of fire and pain!

    Found out that you can't get within 75 metres of the planet side behind in an Anaconda because by the time your nose hits the ground you are still 85 metres away haha. I guess that's close enough though. The nose smoked and sparked the rest of the way around which I'd never seen before.

    The hauler! Eventually I had to reboot that so as to land!

    Oh, heh. And here I thought that when I pushed the requirement from 50m to 75m that would be enough! I'll push the limit out to 100m and happily take that Anaconda submission.


    edit: rules updated and FAQ item added.

    My hauler has been buffed to within an inch of its life hull plating.

    Should be good for a run tomorrow, just doing a quick recce this evening

    Dang, that race was a lot longer than I thought it would be. But so pretty! First submission in! /exhausted

    After losing all the exploration data from my plotting expedition to Sagittarius A* and back (something like 35 pages of data - please don't ask how it happened. I don't want to think about it), I've pretty much lost all my motivation to play Elite right now. It just feels... meaningless.

    I'm sure I'll be back eventually, but even if I play again before the end of this race, I know I won't have the drive to race again for a while.

    Please withdraw my entry from the race.

    I totally understand. I've been there myself a couple of times. I lost my first ever exploration trip, 2 months of data, to one of those stupid shoot-first, ask for cargo later "pirates" from the early days. I also lost all of my Distant Worlds data, multiple times. That's why I took my last hiatus from the game...while on the one hand it's like, oh no, no one will ever know I was first to all those nebulae, on the other hand, this game punishes explorers on multiple orders of magnitude greater than any other style of play.

    Anyway, we look forward to seeing you when you get back.

    Um, spacebear...I'm looking at the times you submitted and I somehow doubt you finished the race in 0 minutes, 0 seconds. Good thing there are screenshots.

    I should have a leaderboard up with our first submissions in the next handful of hours.

    Hey it's Bruski, he probably found a way to do it in that time!

    There is a way Bruski could do that run in 00:00 easily...

    Just have a clock that only shows minutes and seconds, no hours. Once 59:59 rolls around, the very next second the clock will read 00:00... and that's when he crossed the line!

    First Leaderboard Postings!


    If that looks horrible, my apologies; this is my first time using the background image process for creating a leaderboard.

    I also apologize for a lack of witty; it's late and I got to chase my 4-year around the lake today -- about 3 miles. She was on her training wheels while I was on foot, and I'm not in the best shape these days (but I'm working on it!)

    Anyway, if you submitted a time in the form but don't see your name up here, please let me know!
