New Kudos calculation

The Kudos calculation got adjusted. Uploading creations to Re-Volt World is worth more Kudos than before, same goes for commenting. These changes were done so rating creations is not that “powerful” anymore. Creators will be rewarded more than before, by implementing these changes. All Kudos got re-calculated from zero. Nobody lost a single Kudo, because no rewards got decresed – only increased.

The changes in details:

  • Release a Car: 8 instead of 3
  • Release a Track: 16 instead of 5
  • Release a Skin: 4 instead of 1
  • Release a Misc. creation: 4 instead of 2
  • Rate a creation: No changes
  • Comment a creation: 4 instead of 2
  • Join an event: No changes
  • Vote at an event: No changes

Public DM system implemented

For registered users it’s now possible to contact other Re-Volt World users via direct messages. Inside every user profile you can find a “Send a DM to xxxxx” button in the “Links & Contact” section. By default the DM function is enabled, but every user can decide to turn it off. Just uncheck the “Direct messaging” in your “Edit user profile” page in this case.

New badge showing comment amount

A small change at the creation overview was implemented today: At the top-right corner of the creations preview picture you can see from now on, how many comments these creations already got. Please note, that this badge is only visible at the full (desktop) version of Re-Volt World. A click on the badge will lead you directly to the comments section. If no comment was made until now, there is no badge visible. If you have issues seeing the new badge, please force-refresh your browsers cache by hitting Ctrl+F5.

New field “E-mail” in user profile

In the user profile it’s now possible to fill out a new field in the “links & contact” category: E-Mail. The field won’t be filled by default, so the users can decide theirselves if others can see their mail address. This field is also not visible for the public, it’s only visible for logged in Re-Volt World users. Thanks to 607 for this feature suggestion.

New category “Track Mod”

There is a brand new creation category on Re-Volt World. It’s called “Track Mod“. The purpose for this new category is to collect modifications for already existing tracks. Examples would be texture adjustments, added Reversed-versions, AI-node overhauls, and so on. Please beware that not all these adjustments are compatible for online multiplayer. Therefore read the creations description carefully, before downloading.

Some small UI changes

We made some small improvements on the mobile UI, as well on the user statistics section. When browsing Re-Volt World from a mobile device, you now can see the rating informations similar to the desktop version of Re-Volt World. Also we added a new line in our user statistic section: Below the newest Re-Volt World meber, you now also can see our last supporter.

Staff member badge

Beside the already well-known “Supporter crown”, there is now a second user-related badge you may see while browsing around Re-Volt World: A small purple badge with a with “S” in the middle. This symbol means, that this user is member of the Re-Volt World staff team. This little image will be printed everywhere, where usernames will be used: Comment section, creation uploads, the userlist, and so on.

Top-List Change

The amount of votings needed to get into the Re-Volt World Top-List was raised once more. From now on it’s necessary for creations to be listed in the Top-List, to have a minimum of 16 votings. Before this change, 14 votings were necessary.

Our goal is to raise this value until we reached a minimum of 20 votings. Especially cars and skins have not that much votings currently, so we have to raise the value slowly. The more members will do votings, the more we can raise the limit. As said before, we will stop as soon we can reach 20 votings. With a value of 20, the quality of the top-list should be quite good in the end.

User statistics

Below the well-known “Who is Online?” box there are now some statistics visible. At the first line you can see the total amount of registered users. You can click on the value to get to a complete list of users. In the second line you can see the newest member who registered at Re-Volt World. Click on the name, and check the users profile page! The last two lines are statistical values. You can see how many registered users were active during the last day and the last month. The little arrow in green, yellow or red is showing a trend for these values.

The “Member since/Last seen” section on the user profiles got slightly adjusted. From today on this section show the exact day, month and year – and not only month and year. In addition, the dates will also use the words “yesterday” or “today”, if applicable.

Member since/Last seen

Added “Member since” and “Last seen” information to the user profiles. The information show right above the Kudos and Level Statistics section. If the selected user is a dummy-user (users with no real user account – needed for old creations), only the date when the dummy-user was created will show. The “Last seen” date will be recorded and stored in our database since August 2022. If the user was last online before this date, it will show “Too long ago…” instead of a date.

Discord server closed

The Re-Volt World Discord Public Server has come to its end. Initially, it had the goal of helping us by reporting bugs and suggesting features for the website. The last few months we had to deal with so many annoying matters caused by it, it was a detriment to our work. We are tired of it, and we want to spend more time bringing new features, moderating content and polishing our website to make the best of it possible. As a replacement for bug reporting possibilities, event voting and news announcements, we will try to implement functions directly on the website very soon.
