Pfister Tonight!
Pfister Tonight!
Come and join us on Wednesday 6th of October at 20:00 UK Time for Paulie's Night! Just turn up to the front door of the Von Crastenburg Hotel in Morningwood in any Pfister.

We will determine who has the best taste in Pfister before we start a playlist to determine who is the Master of Pfisters!

For this night we will do all 8 Pfisters once. These are in order...

Comet


811


Comet Retro Custom


Comet Safari


Neon


Comet SR


Growler


Comet S2




Don't worry if you don't own all/any of the Pfisters, we can spawn them in for you.

If you own an 811, please let me know with your signup as that is the only one I do not have myself. This way we know we have all cars at least once.

Crew Challenge 245 – Golf
Crew Challenge 245 – Golf
With Solheim Cup a couple of weeks ago and the Ryder Cup next weekend (those are the USA vs Europe bi-annual gold tournaments) I thought it was time we had another gold challenge.

 

A solo challenge, 9 holes of golf. But just to be a bit different do holes 1 to 6 in bright weather and holes 7 to 9 in the rain. So you will have to do them in two separate games (you can set the start and end hold and weather on the Settings screen). Make as many attempts at each set of holes as you like. Best score for all 9 holes wins. Please save and submit screen shots for each game.

 

As a tie break we'll use the distance your tee shot makes on hole 1, closest to the pin wins. The easiest way to see this is from your 2nd shot. It will show 'To Pin' and other info on the screen before you take the shot. So save a screen shot for that as well. It does not have to be from the same round you submit your scores for holes 1 to 6 from. You can even re-do that on it's own if you like.

 

Starts now

Ends 4th Oct 19:00 UK time

please try to post scores within 48 hours.

La Strada [RSC Film Club 34]
This month we are going international as the film club watches a movie in a language that we've not yet covered, as suggested by @djw180.  So no films in English, French, Norwegian, Korean or Japanese could be nominated.  The winning film, nominated by me, is Federico Fellini's neorealist drama, La Strada (The Road).  


It stars Giulietta Masina as Gelsomina, a naive and simple young woman whose mother sells her to a travelling circus to be the wife and assistant of the brutish strongman,  Zampanò (Anthony Quinn).  She soon falls in love with the circus's clown, Il Matteo (Richard Baseheart) and considers leaving her jeasous and violent husband for him.  

I'm really looking forward to watching this as I'm both a fan of Fellini, and of Masina.  Their other collaboration that I've seen, Nights of Cabiria in which Masina plays a down on her luck prostitute, is one of my favourite films ever and her performance one of the best I've ever seen.  Masina was his muse and his inspiration, and you can feel the love he has for her in the way he films her.  The two were married from 1943 until his death in 1993.  

This is considered one of Fellini's greatest masterpieces, so if you've never seen a film of his before you are in for a treat.

Planes Trains and Automobiles
Come and join us this Wednesday night for something involving vehicles of the travelling variety!

If it can be raced we will race it... and do other things with it, hopefully things that might stop Mulder from winning because they require more luck than skill.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles my dudes.

Rigged Random Tier Extravaganza
Come and join us on Wednesday 22nd August at 20:00 UK Time for the Rigged Random Tier Extravaganza. After a meet up behind 'Bishop's WTF?!' we will launch into a playlist of races where you will only know what class and tier of car you can choose before each race when we get to the race lobbies.

A tier is a group of cars in a class all about on the same pace. For example in SUV's one of these is the Granger, Landstalker XL, Rocoto, Seminole Frontier, Serrano, Squaddie & XLS. This should give us a diverse grid of cars maybe not often used while still competitive among eachother.

Each tier is determined by a random generator with a few exclusions like skipping tiers with only one car, already used earlier on the evening or tiers often used in regular races (I.E. with cars like the Krieger in Supers). Also we will not be doing the same class twice in a row.

We will run GTA races so we can spawn in cars for those who do not have any from the tier.

Sign up below as usual...

Crew Challenge 243 - Flight School
Crew Challenge 243 – Flight School
A solo challenge giving you a chance to improve your flying skills. We're using 2 of the Flight School lessons, accessed by entering the white circle at LSIA where the aeroplane icon is on the map. See this video, for example, if you're not sure where to go. You do need to pass the earlier lessons to get access to these, but getting bronzes is relatively easy.

 

You need to do two of the lessons

no. 2. Engine Failure


assessed by how close you finish to the landing CP, get as close as possible




no. 6. Formation Flight


assessed by points, gets as many points as you can






 

Your score for the challenge will be

(points from Formation Flight) – 5 x (distance from Engine Failure)

 

So the lower your distance in the first part, the less you get deducted from your score for the second part.

Just post your results from each lesson. I will work out your score.

End 19:00 UK time 4th Sept

Please post scores within 48 hours

Survive the Hunt 2
Survive the Hunt 2

Come and join us in Survive the Hunt, where the aim is to... Well... survive the hunt! Wednesday 24th of august 20:00 UK time starting from the parking lot of the Maze Bank Arena.

What is Survive The Hunt?
Essentially, Survive The Hunt is a freeroam game mode where one player is "hunted" by 8+ other players. There is no radar, HUD or name-tags in order to make this a bit more interesting. While there is no set tactic, the most popular and effective one is for the hunted player to "blend in" with the game AI - either on foot or in a car. This means obeying traffic laws, following the road at an AI-ish pace, stopping at traffic lights etc. The hunters can employ a similar tactic to attempt to locate and then ambush the hunted player. Communication is essential for the hunters to work effectively together.

If you want to see this game mode in action, check out FailRace's YouTube series.

Rules:

Radar, player names & the HUD must be turned off.


All players must stay within the city limits at all times. This area is defined on the map below.


The hunted person has a two minute head-start on the hunters.


Weapons may NOT be used whilst in a vehicle. They can only be used on foot. The idea behind this is that it makes chases a bit more interesting than just head-shotting someone the second they're spotted.


Any type of explosive weapon is banned.


One helicopter is allowed to be used by the hunters. It cannot use any weapons and must not have missiles (to stop cheating using missile lock).


Any type of weaponized or special vehicle is banned as well as any Sports Classic quicker then the Savestra (Like the Retinue Mk II, Viseris & Turismo Classic), all Sports & Supers.


The hunted player may not camp or hide inside buildings, underground areas or in car parks.


They are allowed to briefly stop, but for no longer than a couple of minutes. This does not mean that they are not allowed to drive through road tunnels - they can, as long as they do not stay there for extended periods of time.


The hunted player should not be in the party or voice chat with the hunters.


New Rule 1: The host will give a specific location every few minutes. Time depended on the amount of people attending.


New Rule 2: The Hunted must wear very bright clothes. Preferably the green alien suit if attainable.

American Graffiti [RSC Film Club 33]
The genre for August's Film Club selection, as nominated by @Conwas school/college films.  The winning entry, nominated by both @djw180and @Squirrelis George Lucas's ode to his teenage years, American Graffiti.

Set over the last night of summer vacation, the film follows a group of teenagers as they hang out for the last time, cruising in their hot rods, trying to pick up girls and looking to the future.  It stars Ron Howard (Happy Days) before he became an Oscar winning director and Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws), with an expansive supporting cast that includes Harrison Ford (you know who he is).  Not only did the film fuel the wave of 50s/60s rock 'n' roll nostalgia of the 70s that resulted in the sitcom Happy Days and culminated in the smash hit musical Grease, but it was also so successful that it enabled writer/director George Lucas to self-fund his next project, Star Wars.  

This is the only George Lucas film that I haven't seen (if you've never seen his debut film THX 1138 you need to check it out), and is very different from the rest of his filmography which is all sci-fi.  This seems like a very personal film to him which I can't wait to see, as he is often criticised for being quite a cold filmmaker.  I often wonder what kind of films Lucas would've made if Star Wars didn't take over his whole career.


i hear college girls really put out

Mary-Lou, Sally, Savannah & Barbara - Dominator Race Night!
Mary-Lou, Sally, Savannah & Barbara

Come and join us on Wednesday 18th of August at 20:00 UK Time for Dominator Race Night! Just turn up to the parking lot behind Tequi-la-la in any of the 4 generations of Dominator.

We will determine who has the best taste in Dominator before we start a playlist to determine who is the Master Dominator!

The first 4 races we will do mixed racing where you'll be once in each generation. For the other 4 races we will all race one generation per race from oldest to Newest.

Don't worry if you don't own all/any of the Dominators, we can spawn them in for you.

All 4 generations of Dominator will be raced on the night but only the 4 REGULAR versions. We will not be using the Pißwasser Dominator. It would be nice if we'd have a reasonably balanced field.

Post below to get involved with the Dominator you plan to bring along!
