    1 PM. The last day of school is over. What about using the local high school for some cool RC car races? Driving through the classrooms, the gym and the outdoor sports field, as well as the surrounding neighborhood. Is there anything better to celebrate the beginning of the summer holidays? :)

    This track is meant to be an ultimate tribute to the game we all love. Highly influenced by custom stock-like gems like PetroVolt or Jailhouse Rock, the track is also using well-known parts from Toys in the Hood and Supermarket.

    Major features of School's Out!:

    • Long and diverse raceline
    • Reverse mode with a summer storm coming!
    • Practice mode star
    • Time trial times to beat
    • A lot of Re-Volt themed Easter eggs to find
    • Exclusive music by ZetaSphere

       

    The track won't be the same without the help from this Re-Volters:

    • AI made by Whitedoom
    • Shading made by Gotolei
    • Replay cameras by L!lmexican
    • Performance Optimization by Mr. Burguers
    • Pickup Placement by Stingox
    • Raceline testing by Stvictorar and Zipperzbieracz
    • Several meshes made by Alexander and Instant
    • Music by Kirioso (a.k.a. ZetaSphere)

     

    Happy 20th Anniversary, Re-Volt!
    -Kiwi

    Version 1.4 and Version 1.41 Update

    • Fixed a repo-bug at the Hood 1 area
    • Fixed several repo-bugs at the R-version
    • Slightly adjusted AI-nodes at the start area

  1. School’s Out! was released in 2020 by Kiwi, featuring help from several other creators. It combines parts from the Toys in the Hood 1 and Supermarket 2 tracks from the original game with new sections based on a sewer, a skating park and a school.
    After Spa-Volt 1 and Spa-Volt 2, anticipation for School’s Out! was high. And expectations were met! The track is very beautiful, and very fun. It is not too tricky, but challenging enough, and the AI is great. The track is very long, but remains interesting throughout. School’s Out! is very easy to learn; new players might have a little trouble with the skate park, but even that’s not too tricky to figure out, and when you know where to go it is certainly very satisfying.
    There have been other tracks incorporating stock material, but never before or after has any track mixed the old and new so perfectly. Nothing feels out of place. This is impressive, because the stock tracks are actually less detailed than Kiwi’s tracks, so extra details were added to these parts. The track has lots of little fun challenges to get a pick-up; most of them unfortunately aren’t useful for a competitive race, but they add character regardless. The school parts are well thought out and really fit Re-Volt. Compared to the Spa-Volt tracks, School’s Out! has more straight-forward racing and less super tricky parts. Which is cool! We need both types of tracks.

    Since the release of Kiwi’s classic School’s Out!, some updates have been done. None of them greatly alter the experience that the track gives, but the updates give some small improvements. The most noticeable changes to me are that the music track has been changed from one of the tracks from the original game to a great original track by ZetaSphere, and that the name of the track has been changed from School’s Out! to School’s Out! 2. This because an edit of the track called School’s Out! 1 was made. I’m not sure why this one was called 2 and the other one 1 and not the other way around, but oh well.
    The most recent update to School’s Out! 2 was done just a few months ago, and I hope that it will be updated again in the future: the stars (or at least one of them, as can be seen in the video) are too high to obtain with Dust Mite in Simulation mode.

  2. I won‘t remove the radio, as it‘s part of the tracks ambience SFX and in my opinion it add a lot to the atmosphere. Also the radius where you can hear the radio is very limited. While driving normal laps you can hear it just for a few seconds.

  3. Updated to Version 1.4: Fixed a repo-bug at the Hood 1 area, and slightly adjusted the AI-nodes at the start area.

  4. Oh yeah… The very track because of which I wanted to get RVGL for. A very good track model, which is a bit complicated for weak computers. I really like the racing line. I feel like I’m in this city, in this school. Yes, there are some confusing moments (in terms of the race line), but if you drive several times on the track, you can get used to it. Thank you for this wonderful track for Re-Volt. (And yes, this masking image of the street behind one of the doors of the school looks good xD). My score is 100/10.
