Hey all, we did a clan racing event in our clan in January, every saturday we raced on some maps that were created by various people in the past, Gold prizes were given out at the end and also a premium tank.  

 

Sunday Oct 28, 2018 twitch stream, forward to the races or map overviews with freecam

 

https://www.twitch.t...eos/328753197##

 

Here is a video showing a few highlights of one of our races.

 

 

Maps were downloaded from the net, one required renaming to work, not sure of the original creators.

 

This is one of the most recent maps i made in September 2018

We are doing this again for October, racing is sunday evenings, get ahold of rongee in -NHL-  for links, you need a download map pack, and need to install it in the correct folders.  ts3 is what we use, some of us have discord also to help you install. for those that dont, we have links set up with instructions to guide you through it.

 

IT IS RECOMMENDED TO NOT RUN IT WITH ANY OTHER MODS. so cut and paste your 1.2.0 mods into another folder or rename it, make a new folder 1.2.0 in the mods folder and put the racemap kit in there.

ok thats just FKING AWESOME! lmbo! LOVE IT!

 

Is this something you guys do daily or seasonal?

This is something that I think needs everyone's upvote to take it to the next level, possibly even start a circuit much like nascar and points.

Killer work!

hi JL, we have made alot of maps this past month, some are on the new maps as well. its a quick download and installation in your mods folder. i have been streaming it on twitch as well when we race.  we have done it two months this year so far during the weekends.  its a hoot with lots of crashing and bashing.  we keep points per race as well, and some payouts at the end, both in clan and out of clan.

 

one of the latest

Are there certian tanks that you guys try to stick with? certian types, tiers, etc?

and pending on the tanks, would you guys like to have some tanks modified to have wheels possibly even more of a sporty body, glow, chrome look to them?

If interested and would like to see what all is possible that I can do with the tanks (within Limitations), check out my remodel page HERE.

I think it would be a cool effect that would just add more fun to your mod.

 

I am already in process of creating an 8 wheeled double barreled Chaffee. and as you can see on the Type 59 swamp buggy, I can pretty much fully modify the whole tank body, turret, etc. Just get back with me and maybe we can hook up on voice chat about it.. I have TS, Vent, and Discord. Just let me know.

@JLdragon,   that is totally cool. we have had a few skins but thats taking it to the next level, would need to know how big the downloads are also i guess, we do have a list of tanks that we use. if possible contact rongee in our clan and we can see what to do.  also if your around this sunday evening, you can come race with us :)

If you havent already downloaded either one of my Remodeled tanks, they are less then 10meg each. the Type 59 which has been fully modified on all parts is only 9.3 meg.

So the file downloads would be very small and only take a few seconds to get and install. I will add you and Rongee in game as well as a friend then go from there, possibly do voice chat to get more details as needed for any kind of remodeling goes.

As far as making the remodels they can take anywhere from 2-3 days to possibly 2-3 weeks pending on how the 3d model is assembled and how Fked up WG put them together.

3DS Max is a somewhat of an unstable 3d program so sometimes it takes a few trys to get the modifications to behave and work correctly, so a few attempts is not uncommon to have a finished remodel.

The Type 59 took about 2 weeks to get done (1-3 hours a night), was a decent model to work with but still had some flurbs in it that needed to be fixed along with a couple of program crashes etc.

I'm going on 3 weeks now working on that chaffee with the wheel conversion alone because of how screwed up the 3d model was created.

 

So if you guys want one a wheeled tank model, expect no less then 2-3 weeks at the minimum to have done pending on how much remodeling you would like done.

OK guys I have finished the T92LT Tank for your enjoyment. I have reserved the NHL Version download on my google drive so that it will only be used by your clan, how we go about you all receiving it is another thing. I'll get on TS and talk to you all about it to figure that part out. I will be starting the PZIC tank next. I managed to finish the LT in about 6-8 hours of undisturbed work time on it.

I fully extended the top part of the hull, added a few extra access panel doors, changed the rear vent angle, and Moved the Exhaust under rear of tank, gave it more realistic bulb colors. The zip file on my post is the default remodel W/O your clan logo and has all .DDS files contained within the folder so if any of you are familiar with recoloring, they will available.

 

As far as your clan logo tank, it also has the AM.DD and GMM.DDS files for recoloring.
