Re: CWA slowly getting quite old: a look back

I enjoyed the 'rivalries' that the sites had, Matt- People trying to release the best cars and attract the best car makers to their own sites, and as you say, actually putting in a fair bit of work to write news posts that were more than just "Released a new car, get it [here]". We're talking "Hold ...

Re: Carmageddon chat rooms

There's #carmageddon on irc.slashnet.org, but we rarely talk Carmageddon.
Discussions will probably pick up again once C:R is released, but the channel is around 12 to 13 years old now, so the carma discussions dried up a fair while ago ;)

Re: billiard tables!?!!

I tried doing a pool table for my first (maybe second?) map. It was a horrible... truly horrific model, full of holes and big ramps that didn't even go anywhere. The idea was that you could have a nice big area on the top of the table to speed around on, and then down each of the pockets would be th...

Re: My birthday's coming up!! having trouble making cars

Hey Patrick, If you find you make another car that errors, try running carma in software mode (Carma_sw.exe). It won't look pretty, but when it crashes it should give you an error that you can tell us. My guess is that it'll be a "wheels outside all shapes", or something else obscure relating to the...

Re: A complete newbies early WIP - help appreciated

Heh, that tutorial is pretty horrible, to be honest. It gets the basic idea across though I suppose, but you look like you're on the right track already with smooth parts. I think one thing to remember is just to experiment with joining up your points differently. Sometimes you'll create a couple of...

Re: A First

Might be a fair bit of work to get every car to line up perfectly though. It'd be in your control because you'd have to create new cars (or atleast new bboxes for existing cars). Either way, whatever C2 uses to calculate where to place you on the grid (Centre of Gravity?) would have to be exactly th...

Re: More bounding box bullshit

I could be wrong, but I think the wheel points have to be in the lowest bbox the car has (in terms of closest to the ground). Your first box has a Y pos of 0.0466 (at its lowest), and you say that works fine in C2 When you add your second box, it has a lowest Y pos of 0.0150. I assume your wheel poi...

For those who are still getting the timer, try clearing your cache.
