Good morning, Speedfrens.I'm the manager from our board's divegrass team and, like in every reason, we're rebuilding our roster. Your boy G-Tek was pretty helpful last season so we'd like you guys to come and vote for him (and whoever else you see fit) for the new cup which is starting in 3 weeks.Here's the pollhttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdhAAWpaLVSRc8o_cvkNzGGhQhHwXbnUTVC5B1Cz_M4vjEu1w/viewformAnd here's the thread in case you guys wanna peep in there.>>1059086The results will get announced in the thread shortly after the polling is done. Thanks for your undying support as always and see you on the road.
>>1060351Not the manager but I want to confirm to all of you that G-TEK FOOTBALL will stay put on the roster as one of the two gold medal players.

>>1071998closed, great races bros see ya next week
To all fans of G-TEK FOOTBALL:The group stage draw for the 2023 Autumn Babby Cup has just ended, and we have miraculously been paired with these three teams. Here is the schedule for each of /vm/'s matches./vm/ vs /vg/ Saturday, October 28th @ 1pm EST/vm/ vs /v/ Friday, November 3rd @ approx. 5pm EST /vm/ @ /f/ Sunday, November 5th @ approx. 4:20pm EST
>>1073157damn thats some competitionbut i believe in /ourguy/ G-TEK, ill try to catch the matches if im awake for em
What's the average playtime around here? if on steam at least and it's easy to check. I'm near 50 hours but have never played online cuz I don't think I'm ready yet. I lurk the shit out of the threads for general discussion and pro tips that get dropped time to time.
>>1074945im at 573 hours, mostly only play during bn/v/ racism these days i think the average playtime is probably around 100-ish hours between the newbros and the vets, presumably people tend to complete all or a good amount of the campaign before jumping into MP
>>1074945I started playing after around 13 hours of playtime and I couldn't run the game well either, you don't have to be an expert at the game to join in on the race day fun.
>>1074960go hyberion :DDDDDD
How do you get started with ship mods? I have some models I'd like to import and assign stats to, maybe I'm retarded but I can't find a comprehensive resource on how to go about doing so.
>>1077553i followed the manual and it worked for meballisticngpastebin com / 9Yrm3YTUTL;DR would be>download ballisticng (((unity))) project that allows you to create content for the game>import 3d models>scale them properly, place the exhaust trails where they belong, etc.>assign stats >save and export ship as ship file>move file into ballisticng custom ship folder
cygon my beloved
>>1078380i wish snek would stop gutting unique ships and instead buff the ones with sick designs but shit stats like cygon and scorpio
>>1078485but how else will he appeal to discord!? DIDN'T THINK OF THAT DID YOU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Gqg3HU5nGgthoughts?looks like the layout is mostly the same, just aesthetic changes, and making the track ahead more visible
>>1079203I get that Vonsnake is probably wanting to update it to the rest of the game's aesthetic but it looks a lot less moodier than the original. At least the pit on the reverse version isn't looking as painful to use.
>>1079203why is every single track update since 1.1 for the worse
G-TEK FOOTBALL IS BACK, AND IT'S RIGHT NOW:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aM7_3IrWQY

>>1079754/vg/'s DANTE pulls ahead for /vg/ early. It's 1-0 /vg/.
>>1079787And another for /vg/ as GIT GUD scores from a distance. I don't feel so good.
A bad result to begin the Autumn Babby Cup. Sorry /bng/ friends. Let's refuel and get back out there on Friday.
lobby's up, come be racist
>>1080067closed, great races brosi mentioned it in the lobby but incase anyone missed it, bongland clocks go back an hour tonight, so racism might start an hour later next saturday for some of you, depending on when your country stops doing daylight meming time
BLOOD BITCH BASTARD SIRdon't mind the music overlayno actually do mind it and add https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8GUUEebIbA to your playlist
>>1080308Werner is the hero we need.
>>1080619do not be seduced by the skiplord
>>1080654wtf i hate werner now
updated my autistic ship tier list based on personal bias and where i predict caliburn will land after snek ruins itforgive the shitty mspaint skills, i really cant be arsed to remake the whole image
>>1080699but thats what makes its pilots so basedif you win in MP with gtek you're a god among racists
>>1080658yknow i am honestly feeling like i am gonna love the post-'nerf' caliburn seeing as tenrai is my current favoriteeven though i feel like i am gimping myself by not picking top tier ships, like choosing high handling / accel is is just a crutch when you could just pick nexus, play better and just be faster.frankly i feel like the ship balance is overall kinda bad considering that if you arent picking nexus/nx2k/diavolt you are just wrong statistically. i dont mind there being high end ships for the most skilled players but the lower end needs to be brought up.
race day gimmick?
>>1082861TOXIC G-TEK ONLY
just bought it and spent a little while in a practice run, very stuttery on my laptop. I've turned everything down and still runs kinda iffy. What else can I do?
>>1083126Use a PC made in the last 10 years. Given no specs have been provided I can only assume turbo potato.
>>1083126close the steam launcher and launch it from the desktop icon
>>1083135Intel Core i7, GeForce MX250. Nothing amazing, but I was expecting a little better
>>1082861whoops didn't realize it was gimmick day cominghere's the pollhttps://strawpoll.com/NoZr3kYMXy3VOTE VOTE VOTE
>fucking around in settings>realize my fps cap has been set to 60 instead of 144>also change camera from rear chase to track chase>instantly feels so much smootherITS LIKE A WHOLE NEW GAME
>>1083528man im so glad i never ate the 144hz/1440p slop i would fucking hate not being able to enjoy games at 60 fps and 1080 anymore
>>108363460hz isnt unbearable but 144 is really just so much better. still play at 1080 tho.
>>1083528>WTF GAME IS BROKEN THIS IS BULLSHIT>~one round of PEBKAC later~>AHAHA OH WOW HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW BEING RETARDED WAS MY FAULT
>>1083634Coasting on a 144hz monitor for roughly a decade, it's kind of nice to have when it's viable but yeah I'd rather pick better colors if it came to general use.
>>1083634I was playing at 120hz in the late 90s and it was better back then too. even 75hz is a big upgrade over 60.>>1083528for this game the best frame rate is a multiple of 50 due to fixed update unity stuff. it looks way smoother that way. 100 or 150 depending on your monitor, i use 100. the only reason to choose anything else is if you're stuck with a slower monitor.
>>1083281>that (Other) votei know who you are fuckheadthe rest of you are alright, don't come to Aciknovae tomorrow

thursday night bump
BNG is finally getting a GOG releasehttps://steamcommunity.com/games/473770/announcements/detail/3802787712104952023
>>1094753>we're aiming to get it out next Friday on the 17thdamn, tonight is the last raceday we'll have with the real caliburn
lobby's up bros
WHAT THE FUCK
>>1095860>someone didn't pick g-tekYeah i'm surprised too.
Pretty crowded tonight, nice
damn we actually have a full house, haven't seen that for a whileif anyone else wants to join while the lobby's still full, gimme a (You) and we could possibly have someone split off to run a second lobby
full house achieved
>>1095838closed, ggs bros those were some great racesfirst time having a full lobby in about a year i think, ya love to see it
>missed todays lobby because i got invited to a family eventnext time im tellin grandma to fuck off
>>1096076I didn't give you permission to post this image about me, anon>>1096104You can always be racist any other weekend, don't worry
>>1096160the jew fears the 16-strong scorplet gang
>>1096104If you're still up to play I can host a lobby
some late nite meme racism happening, join fudge's public steam lobby if you're interested
>>1096395closed, fun racisms>hyperdrag zen oblivion
Found a skip on Alto Overseer, if you pitch up and afterburner/turbo you can go over the railing. So long as you are to the right of the blue line you won't skip a checkpoint and you'll land in front of the Caliburn billboard, but you need to airbrake hard to not hit the wall.
doing some late nite/early morning racism if anyone is still awake and interestedjoin fudge's public steam lobby
>>1102031late night races are closed
>>1102058hyperdrag zen on normal tracks destroys my brain
lobby's up, get in here racists
>>1103524closed, nice races bros
last time i got on, i think i kept getting booted back to the main menu, was that fixed?
>>1107505when trying to play in the weekly lobby i mean. or maybe it was a controller desync issue? summer feels like a century ago
>>1107505>>1107507make sure you aren't on the beta branch and that you don't have any code mods installed, sometimes weekly racism is plagued by timeout bugs (i think due to steam servers shitting the bed) but you shouldn't be getting booted from the lobby once you're in, sounds like a connection issue if not a game files mismatch thingalso, 1.3.3 is out broshttps://steamcommunity.com/games/473770/announcements/detail/3753244942579509632RIP Caliburn
>you can now see where you are going on Aciknovae
Aciknovae, Harpstone, Metro, and Nova Split 1.1 and their reverse variants are all on the workshop as of today, can't wait to experience Metro The Way It Was Meant to be PlayedTM.
>>1108213got em for the track pack update coming next weekif anyone has track suggestions for the pack, feel free to post em, i might have missed some cool shit on the workshopso far i've got:Cairodrome II ReverseRaven's NestSSGX-KoroderaLegacy Aciknovae+ReverseLegacy Harpstone+ReverseLegacy Metro+ReverseLegacy Nova Split+ReverseVirgo
Aciknovae update is just a wider, looser version of the track; completely pointless desu. Reverse feels awful for speed laps, the boost into the first turn is aids and it's a 40 second reset.The new track is fury-tier visual vomit, if anything exists beyond the track limits I wouldn't know because I'm being blinded by the excessively over-patterned track textures. Yes snake we know, passing small objects/patterns gives a sense of speed; there's a fucking limit.
>>1108736Eschaton, site 18
>>1109334thanks, forgot about those ones someone mentioned a week or two ago, added
Not sure if it was excluded on purpose since Yukatek Forward is in the pack, but Yukatek Reverse is conspicuously absent.
>>1110655it was excluded but i can't remember why, i'll grab it and give it a test run later
>>1111612looks like theres another lobby or two up atm, probably due to the latest updatefor any newbros joining, the one you want is Starskink's lobby
>>1111637>Starskink's lobbyMore like starKEK

>>1121627seems that way yeah, i've seen the odd random steam lobby show up but they usually don't last long/get many players and are rare
