Aslad’s Off Road Adventure Pt4
Come and join the Us for some off road fun in the snow for Aslad’s Off-Road Adventure Pt4!
Vehicles:
Bring whatever car you wish, though something with reasonable ground clearance is highly advised. Also, in keeping with the spirit of this event, I would ask that you bring something that doesn't have godly performance as it ruins the challenging aspect of this event. Bikes, weaponised, boosted & flying vehicles are not allowed. 

How it works:

The event will kick off with a "best car" vote so make sure to make yours as offroady or aesthetic as you can! 

We will then set off on a pre-scouted route along the varied and tricky terrain of the east coast of SA. If you get completely stuck or end up in the sea, you may not respawn your vehicle and must ride with someone else until we hit the main checkpoints chosen by myself (I will make you aware when we reach these spots). At these checkpoints, respawning and/or repairing your vehicle is allowed. We will finish at the northernmost tip of the island, and, if time permits, will do a final climb to the top of Mount Chiliad. 

Saturday 20:00 UK time, be there or be a leafy meal that most sane people try and dodge!

GT Sports Car Cup:  WEDNESDAY 10th FEBRUARY
This Wednesday we'll be racing GT Cars against each other on some of our favourite tracks to see which is the best driver/car combo.  You pick one car and you race it all night.  Some of these cars are better on the tight and twisty stuff whereas some are better in a straight line so each will have their moment to shine.  We'll be doing contact racing and reverse grid for each race.

The 6 cars eligible are:

Massacro Racecar ( i predict a @Trashbags)

Jester Racecar (I predict a @badingaaa and a @AlexHat29

Schlagen GT ( I predict a @Paulie and a @mulder)

8F Drafter (I predict a pink @TheFox2000unitand a @CatManDozawith a roof rack)

Elegy Retro Custom (I predict a @JuniorChubband a special blue @doubleg213)

Coquette D10 (I predict a @Mark Verstappen)

 

@Warriors-Tenis unpredictable. 

It's hard to predict whether @Asladwill turn up...

They must have a racing livery to compete because.... lots of reasons but mainly it just looks better.

 

So pick a car and prove me wrong or right with my prediction!  Maybe I didn't predict you at all but you can still come along!

 

1. @SkyeDave (Massacro Racecar)

2.  @mulder (Schlagen GT)

3. @CatManDoza(8F Drafter

4. @AlexHat29 (Jester Racecar)

5. @Aslad(Elegy Retro Custom)

Cayoo Pericoo Special
Cayoo Pericoo Special
Come and join us on Wednesday 16th of October at 20:00 UK Time for the after update Special! Just turn up to the session and we'll see what we're in for.

Due to us not knowing what we'll all get this Tuesday and what everybody might have Wednesday we thought I'd just be best to decide on the night what everybody feels like doing. This could be we'll end up doing races in new cars. But it could also be exploring the new island (If thats possible), checking out cars, going to the new club, listening to over 100+ new songs, doing the heist or a combination of any. It all depends on what everyone feels like doing on the night.

To keep it simple we'll just have a signup list like normal but since this is not really a pre-planned event we'll also see who's online and such on the night to send some invites.

Post below to get involved!

Verstappen


Warriors


Mulder

Crew Challenge 225 – On the Oche
Crew Challenge 225 – On the Oche
Trying something we haven't done before, darts.

Play 3 successive games of darts, on your own. Fewest darts used to complete the 3 games wins.

It's set to a score of 301 with no way to change that, as far as I can see. I've no idea if anyone is going to achieve the quickest checkout (6 darts I believe, i.e. potentially 18 is the best score), but in case more than person gets the same number of darts we need a tie break. So that will be fastest time from 1st to last dart.

To clearly show how many darts used and to time it should a tie break be needed, save a video starting just before your first game starts and ending just after your 3rd ends.

You must do 3 games in a row; when you start the darts select 3 games.

 

Any questions / things to clarify?

 

If people who have more GTA darts experience than me think it could be too easy to get a tie we can increase the number of games to make that less likely. But I think 3 will be enough and keep the videos nice and short.

 

Starts now.

Ends 19:00 GMT 21st Dec.

Vulcar!  The forgotten manufacturer. Wed 9th December 2000GMT
This Wednesday we'll be celebrating the often overlooked Swedish manufacturer Vulcar who have been providing Los Santos with a range of reasonably priced cars ranging from the sublime to the Ingot.  Despite this they're often forgotten about, not least when it came to making a poster or a playlist this weekend as I promised.

There are some things that we know for sure though and that is that we'll be racing three of the finest Vulcars to grace San Andreas and also the Ingot. A mixture of race tracks and rally stages await that won't have been tested recently in the correct class.

We will most likely do three races with the Nebula Turbo.

We will almost certainly do two races with the Warrener.

I'm thinking maybe two races for the Fagaloa too.

And one in the Ingot.

 

You don't need to own any or all of the cars.  We'll run GTA races so they can be borrowed.  I've taken the plunge and bought an Ingot so no one else has to.

Say 'I Got an InGot' out loud when you type it or 'I ain't got an InGot' depending on your status if you would like to take part.

1. SkyeDave - I got an Ingot.

Roofrack Rumble - The Highly Anticipated Return of Catman
 Start your December right, with a hot off the press celebration of all things roof based. Bring along your favourite racked and stacked vehicle to the casino car park at 8:00PM on Wednesday for a night of general tomfoolery.

I like to do things a bit different and not race the same old best in class cars, so for this event there will be 8 races all in racked off vehicles. I tried to cover every class, but even your maestro of roofs struggled with some, so the races will be as followed, not necessarily in this order,

Race 1 - Compacts - Panto's

Race 2 - Sports - 8F Drafter

Race 3 - Sports Classics - Nebula

Race 4 - SUV's - Novak

Race 5 - Vans - Rumpo Custom

Race 6 - Sports Classics - Pigall.........Lols only joking - Dynasty

Race 7 - Sports - Sultan Classic

Race 8 - Indy 500 - Regina's - Catch Up & Slip Stream

I have all the cars, so everything can be spawned in for those who, for some reason, don't own a racked vehicle!!!

And finally, as you know, I don't take things too seriously and will be trying my best to find ways to d*ck you all over as best I can throughout the night.

PS5 Official Hardware Details
Did you get yours yet? If so tell us about your experiences so far!! And what game has you really excited for the next-gen console?
According to Mark Cerny, who served as the lead system architect for the PS4, the new console isn’t just a spec-boosted upgrade of the PS4, like the PS4 Pro was. There’s entirely new hardware inside the PlayStation 5, including an eight-core CPU based on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen line built on the chip company’s latest 7nm Zen 2 process and a custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi hardware, which will bring ray-tracing graphics to a game console for the first time. The end result of all those hardware improvements: the PS5 will support 8K graphics, assuming you’ve got a TV that supports that kind of resolution.

THE PS5 WILL SUPPORT 8K GRAPHICS, ASSUMING YOU’VE GOT AN 8K TV

Sony is also putting particular emphasis on 3D audio for the PlayStation 5. The new AMD chip apparently includes a custom unit just for that, which Sony hopes will lead to more immersive gaming both on TV speakers and headphones.

The other big change coming to the PlayStation 5 is the replacement of the hard drive with an SSD, which Sony promises will improve load time and gameplay beyond anything possible with a hard drive. (In a demo described by Wired, fast-traveling in Spider-Man for the PS4 took only 0.8 seconds on an early devkit for the PS5, compared to 15 seconds on a PS4.)

Other details that Sony revealed about the PS5 include the fact that it’ll be backwards compatible with existing PlayStation 4 games. Unlike the PS3 to PS4 transition, the PS4 and PS5 share similar architectures, making cross-generational support much easier. There will still be physical copies of games to buy, not just downloads (although Sony has yet to reveal if these will be Blu-ray discs or something more exotic). The company is also promising that when the PS5 does roll around, it’ll be a slower transition, with multiple new games releasing for both the PS4 and PS5 — at least at the start.

While Sony wouldn’t discuss future PSVR plans, like a next-gen headset to go along with the new console, the company confirmed that the existing PSVR headset will continue to work with the PlayStation 5.

For now, Sony seems to only be willing to talk broad strokes about hardware. There’s no word yet on things like games or media features, for example. It could be some time until we learn more. The PlayStation 5 likely won’t be making an appearance at E3 since Sony is sitting out the show this year.

There’s still no release date yet for the PS5. Cerny would only tell Wired that it won’t be out in 2019, but that developers already have access to devkits to develop games for it, which would make sense for a rumored 2020 launch.

The Hunt for Red October [Film Club Extra 07]
The world lost a legend of cinema recently with the passing of Sir Sean Connery, so to celebrate his life and career the film club will be watching one of his classics.  I think it's a testament to his acting ability and range that, despite being best known for playing James Bond, none of his 007 films were nominated.  Instead there were nominations for a wide range of roles from across the decades, with the winner being nominated by @Squirrel, the Cold War thriller The Hunt for Red October.


Directed by action movie legend John McTiernan, who also bought us Predator, Die Hard and The Last Action Hero, and based on a novel by Tom Clancy, Red October tells the story of a Russian Navy captain, played by Connery, who wants to defect to the west along with his brand new state of the art submarine.  This is a tense action thriller with a great supporting cast including the likes of Alec Baldwin, Tim Curry, Sam Neill and James Earl Jones.  I haven't seen this in about twenty years, but I do recall being gripped the entire run time, so I can't wait to revisit this.  

once more we play our dangerous game

========================================================

As well as talk about the film, this would be a good place to share our favourite Connery moments.  For me, alongside his performance as James Bond and his Oscar winning turn in The Untouchables ("if they put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue") my favourite Connery moment, and one of my favourite quotes in all of film history, is from Highlander where he says, in his usual iconic accent, "I'm not Spanish.  I'm Egyptian."

Mulholland Drive [RSC Film Club 23]
The month of November in the film club belongs to the legendarily strange director David Lynch, our second taste of his filmography after Dune.  However, the winning film for this month is a much more Lynchian work that truly represents his style and the themes that he returns to in a lot of his work.  @djw180and @Con both nominated a trip into the unsettling and dreamy world of Mulholland Drive.


Mulholland Drive is a surreal neo-noir mystery that tells the tale of Betty, played by Naomi Watts, a young actress just arrived in LA and Rita, played by Laura Harring, who has become an amnesiac after a brutal car crash.  When their paths cross life starts to get very weird for Betty, leading to an ending that people are still trying to interpret and make sense of nearly twenty years later.  There are several other story threads in this film, some of which last only one scene and are never refenced again, but the main support comes from Justin Theroux who plays a director, Adam, who is being coerced into casting a woman he doesn't want in his film and whose wife is banging Billy Ray Cyrus.  

This is a dense and enigmatic film that you won't make much sense of on the first, or even second viewing, but the clues are all there.  Lynch isn't one to do something randomly, even though it seems like it sometimes.  Everything he shows us has a meaning and he gives us all of the tools to try to work it out.  This is the middle part of a loosely connected trilogy, Lost Highway and Inland Empire being the first and last chapters, so if you like this I highly recommend checking those out too,  but this is arguably the best of the three and maybe the best film from one of the most unique and revered directors in film history.

it'll be just like in the movies, we'll pretend to be someone else

The Duel of The Alamo Sea - a creators event
”A surreal stagnant oasis in the desert. The water might look clean but it can burn through a man's lower intestine in seconds.

The Alamo Sea, according to its official website, was created as the result of an accident. According to a Weazel News radio report, hipsters have begun moving to the Alamo Sea area. They were bored and did not follow the local lifestyle, so the hipsters decided to start using drugs.”

 

Creativity and addiction, the jewel of San Andreas has everything that makes one feel at home.  So now its time for us to explore the area even further. We will create jobs near or on the Alamo Sea. The theme will be "duel", or dual if you prefer.. open to your interpretation. Examples could be, but not limited to, locking a race to two vehicles (maybe a rivalry like Vapid vs Declasse), or assigning each team a different but specific weapon in a deathmatch. Let your creativity flow and lets help each other testing when needed.

We will allow 3 weeks for the creative process. During this time we will create the jobs, each player creates one (1) job. Then we will host the jobs in one or more events depending numbers. Please have the jobs ready by Saturday November 14th.

You are of course welcome to join the event even if you have not created a job!

To sign up, please let us know what type of job you are going to create, and keep us updated if you need to change the plan 😄

All jobs should hold 30 players, but if you choose a job-type that does not allow 30 players that is fine as well. We will try to adjust and include it somehow when possible.

If you never used the creator, now is the time to try it out!

Any questions, post away or contact me, @djw180or @omarcomin71
