I was in the same spot when I was younger, took the easy way out and refused to go to school and regret it every single day now. It's hard to do but you need to find a way to beat it. Mine was a combination of severe depression and some other stuff, but definately see a doctor you feel comfortable talking to. Since the problem is never obvious.

Just stick with it because if you give up you'll regret it. I do.

Edit: My MSN is in my profile if you need someone to talk to about this, since you pretty much described what I went through and I might be able to help.

Quick decent-quality video of the Prototype. TV Cam hotlap @ Road America - http://files.filefront.com/ira ... /;13278358;/fileinfo.html

Excuse the bad driving and the music. Had issues with fraps and sound for some reason. Just mute it if you don't like it.

Really getting into iRacing, even though I mostly just play offline in practice sessions when I get time it's still a really solid sim. Shame it's expensive, but meh, you get what you pay for. Will gladly pay for good-quality content which it's currently delivering. Really should try online sometime, though...

Was there on Sunday too, very good day out. Weather was nice got a slight bit sunburnt. Never been before so didn't know what to expect but I'd definately go again. So much to see/do for the entire day. Money well spent.

Went to Thruxton for the BTCC 2 years ago, amazing day out. If the weather's hot bring suncream - I forgot to do this and burnt to a crisp.

Might go again this year depends on the funds

Cut the fat off of the bacon then and use some crazy alien low fat super duper cheese.

And replace wedges with rabbit foo..salad.

I'm sure every pub in the country does this. But a simple bit of bacon and a melted cheese slice on top of a chicken breast does wonders.

I like mine with potato wedges and BBQ sauce as an optional extra. Simple quick and easy which is also a bonus!

Yes kid you hate anything that isn't LFS. We know, thanks.

This game is fun and I haven't regretted buying it. No major bugs, it looks nice. Sound is a bit nasty on some cars but I'll live with it.

Makes for some good close racing too which is what alot of people are after. Prefer it to GTR2 anyway, something about that game didn't feel right to me.

Edit : Rts, kid says this about every sim that's released. So.. probably better off to ignore it.

I personally think steam is great. I think I can live with 8MB's of memory gone when I can buy, download and run a game in under an hour without moving.

Maybe I'm just lazy..Or strange.

Decided to buy it today since steam now allow paypal transfers and I was incredibly bored and I have to say. I like it.

Ok so it's not ground breaking in anyway, but it's a solid game. And most of all it's fun, which is what games should be.

Quote from Hypercool :well kenwood here they are,

http://img241.imageshack.us/my.php?image=puntokn8.jpg

hope u like it....

btw, im new to this render thing, could u guyz give me some pointers?

1) How do u guyz turn the wheel of the car for rendering?
2) How do u guyz change the rims of the car?
3) Is it possible to pan/zoom/rotate the camera view on 3dsmax7?


It would be a great help if u guyz could help me on that. Thanks!

1) Click the car, go to group (top bar) and click ungroup. Then select all pieces of the wheel including brakes etc and then just rotate it.
2) There are various LFS sites with different rims for renders, can't remember where though.
3) Yes.
4) *Guys

Quote from Nester 076 :I got another one if someone would like to render it. I spent little more time on this one :nerd: . Not for public use yet.

Edited and unedited as uuuuusual. Nice skin by the way, would look even nicer in 2048x2048. Good crisp lines at that res in renders.

And another of Monkays, spent 5 minutes wondering why the rear brake pad was ugly..Only to realise it was the reflection on the wheel and not the brake pad I was looking at

First is unedited, second edited.

Quote from Davo :I'm liking the flake paint look, must be the lights and the way vray renders.

There are no lights in the scene, also it's mostly the paint material that makes it look like it does. Not just a simple diffuse/falloff.

If you look on the last page you can see a brazil render from me about half way down. Brazil is 200x easier and faster but I believe vray has the potential to look better in the end. Just depends really, if I want a quick render I use brazil, throw a scene together and hit render. If I want to spend time on a scene I use vray. Haven't rendered in a while, decided to give it a go again the other day, still a fun little hobby.

Still alot of learning to do. Mainly how to make glass that looks perfect on a sphere AND perfect as a window, and not just the first part. I had to add a slight fog colour to even make it look like there was a window there..hmmph

For brazil scenes all I do is use a curved plane, a circle above the car with the brazil utility material and shove a car under it with simple materials and it usually comes out ok. With vray I always put a ton more time into it, usually atleast an afternoon since test renders on my current PC are painfully slow

Not alot really, you can probably notice the sharpen though. On second thoughts I shouldn't have done that.. Original below.

Oh also I use vRay

Basically removed the speckle..a few touchups elsewhere but not exactly major editing. Not happy with the windows and the wheel material could probably be less liney, works ok on other wheels but the XRT wheels look ugly with it.

Quote from Monkay :Alright yea, I got 4 diffrent skins for you guys to render. There pritty neat, so have fun with them!

Thanks!

Another one of yours, these take ages with my settings which is why I'm doing 1 at a time. Usually 1 hour to render than up to 30 mins photoshopping to smooth out some rough edges.

People are high bidding but are never going to pay just to mess up the people who are selling for insane prices.

I doubt a PS3 has been eBayed and actually bought by someone willing to pay for more than ~$1300. Maybe occasionally more.

Still too much for a console, but..people are nuts. PS3 looks ok but I can't see why it's something to camp outside a shop for 2 days, or spend over $1000 on.

Sorry for the crap wheels, I switched computers and when I transferred my scenes over something must have gone wrong since they crash max. Also I only have time to do the FZR.

But it's my first render in ages, so, yea.

Yea seemed a bit strange that they only uploaded the patch to free upload sites, only had luck with the uploading.com mirror which actually went nice and fast at 700kb/s.

Tried the patch online, all seemed ok at the start... Then everyone seemed to spin and stall or something, won by 59 seconds in a 10 lap race..

And the only car I saw was jumping all over the place, hmm..

Still my favourite 'feeling' sim Will give it more of a go later

The keys they give you also work for the full game.

Just FYI..

I quite like it but it seems pretty random..good for some quick fun though.
