  1. Normally there should be a green box saying “Upload successful”, so that’s indeed very strange! I really hope nobody else had the same issues…I’m a bit worried now! Let’s hope for the best.

    For future contest/challenge uploads we will make sure to ask people to have a close look if the green box appears after uploading, otherwise they may contact us.

    EDIT: The “new” voting is up now, including yun’s creations! ->

  2. Many thanks! I was worried about it since once you upload something there is no confirmation if something was correctly uploaded, despite uploading the file twice.
    Also sorry for the inconvenience but it felt really strange to be in No Man’s Land.

  3. @yun: There must have been an issue with your upload. We got hundreds of files uploaded just fine, but nothing from you :( In this case we will make an exception and we will add you in retrospect. Therefor I will also reset the current voting process, so everything will be fair.

    This also means we have exactly 30 participants now, yay! :)

  4. Hey, just asking whoever is in charge of the management of the contest:

    My stuff didn’t appear in the public vote despite uploading every challenge and everything that was required, was it a deliberate choice or is it a mistake?

    Edit: Doesn’t appear to be only me.

  5. I just realized this, upon the uploaded challenges, I have a terrible judgment in my lapse, the name for my Wildstar skin is too long, and will not load in the game. The file name will have to be tweaked for it to load, I am so sorry for that.

  6. Submissions are CLOSED! We will prepare the voting for challenges 9, 15 and 16 now. It should be online ~ tomorrow 20 UTC. After the voting (which will run for 1 week) the final results for the Summer Challenge 2023 will be published. Stay tuned!

    Spoiler: 29 users attended the event, which is awesome! Thanks for participating, everyone! :)

  7. I’ll be submitting soon, I won’t be doing all challenges, but at least more than half. I decided to do most in one week, I had other things to attend. Gotta be a good sport.

  8. @Zloy_Yarik: Until now we have 4 attenders with a 100% completion rate. Two users are only 1 challenge away from the 100%. So far, we got submissions from 25 different participants. In total 231 challenges were completed. Hopefully some more will follow the next 2 days! :)

  9. Well I absolutely tanked it but almost got half of the challenges, my time management never was on point but oh well, it was a pleasure participating! Fun challenges!

  10. I wonder, how many users managed to get a 100% rate (I do not care about their names)?

    Sorry, it’s just been 10 days since last comment here…

  11. Congrats, NVT_06! Still missing about half the challenges myself (and some I won’t attend because I’m biased), but I hope I can find some time finishing the complex ones during my vacation in 2 weeks. :)

  12. Finally, all tasks completed! Hope to get some points :D
    P.S. I think I accidentally uploaded some files twice, cause I’m on vacation and I can barely search something on Google due to the terrible internet connection, so sometimes the files failed to upload, but I think I sent everything…

  13. Thanks for the quick answer, and I don’t meant to pry more but I asked if it’s fine to exploit/abuse the track’s nodes to just start in front of the supposed starting line, as in “It’s not a shortcut/You are not supposed to start from there”, but I guess that works?

  14. If the track offers shortcuts, it’s allowed to use them.

    It’s not allowed to edit tracks by (for example) edit Pos-nodes, remove instances, and so on. Also it’s not allowed to edit the cars parameters to gain advantages. This is what we meant with “respect fair play”. We can’t check anything of these with only having screenshots available, but we want to keep the event as simple as possible. It would be a lot of work to ask attenders to record videos – both for the attenders, but also for us.

    Don’t forget that the whole contest is fun-oriented, so just try to have fun without thinking too much :)

  15. Hey there, I just want to re-ask about the legality of starting cuts, such as Challenge 2. Since the rules says that re-volters should respect fair play, I expect such things to be banned/forbidden and only legal lap times are allowed, but I still ask for 100% confirmation if possible.

    PS: Challenge is fun so far, except for some bits, but nothing major.

  16. I like these challenges, some of them are funny but a bit tough. There are even useful ones, where you have to improve your driving techniques and learn to push certain cars to the limit. What a cool way to do something new on RVGL :)

  17. Holy macaroni, today we got our 100th submission (from 12 different Re-Volters) for the Summer Challenge 2023. Thanks to all attenders, and keep submitting! By the way, one user managed to complete all the challenges already. Well done Mr. *peeeeeeep*! :)

  18. @kiwi I’ve thought about it before, but it’s Rookie. I think it would be unfair to change the parameters. Still, I was lucky, I came across a small Hot Wheels car from this pack as AI opponent:
    I shot fireworks:)
    @bonczy idk, but I completed this challenge the first time, even though I spent 2 or 3 attempts on Country Nightz. I advise you to use an Arcade mode.

  19. For challenge 4 you just need to compare the total race time and the best lap, there should be a very small difference because there is only one lap. The times from the AI cars don’t even need to be realistic.

  20. @bonczy challenge 6 is possible, albeit I struggled with it too, country nights took me 3 attempts to finish with a podium. While yes, the championship is difficult with Phat, it’s far from impossible. Try farming pickups as much as you can and play dirty against them.
    You also have to finish podium for 2 reasons that come to my mind atm:
    1. If you finish podium every race, that more or less guarantees you finishing in the podium overall.
    2. The cup was probably made before it was possible to set the qualification requirements for advancing to the next race.

  21. challenge 6 is pretty much impossible for me, there is NO room for error if you take custom cars into consideration (and there will ALWAYS be at least some custom cars in the cup unless you have -nousercars enabled) and Phat Slug struggles so much with the pipes that if ANYTHING interrupts you during the uphill pipe section, you’re pretty much doomed and have to restart.
    Country Nightz is also a run killer for me because you can get like 2-4 pickups in the entire race without slowing down and losing time (the other rookie cars can afford to take the other pickups but you can’t)
    and also why do i have to finish in podium to advance >:(

  22. Room 12×16 in Challenge 2 has a cut at the beginning of the track which opens up the possibility to cut off 2 extra seconds of the lap time. (Or even more, if people can utilize the track’s environment.)

  23. @Erzu: AI Cars from the same class as RV Loco (Semi-Pro). We’ve adjusted the description accordingly. Also we will look if the times from the AI cars seems to be realistic/plausible.

  24. Hi, these challenges look funny. I just want to report a mistake for challenges 7 and 8 where the link for Nahesa takes you to another car (Line-A). Yes, they’re quite similar, I just learned that xD.

  25. Hereby the 2023′ Summer Challenge is opened – good luck, and have fun everyone!
