I’ve been inspired by all of the old build competition videos I’ve seen on YouTube but cant seem to find any to participate in. So here’s what i was thinking: A realistic vehicle built to transport a jeep.
Here's the Rules:
There will be 100 points possible, 50 points awarded for completion of the main goals, and 50 points for execution of the vehicle.
Can be propelled only by a thruster based piston engine connected to the wheels.
Must fit inside a 4 wide by 6 long by 4 high PHX box.
Must be a maximum of 10,000 GMod weight units heavy.
Maximum of 6 wheel sets, all can be used for drive.
Cannot use thrusters, expression applyforce, or forcers for forward propulsion.
Should have ample space for a standard HL2 jeep somewhere with loading/unloading mechanism.
A gearbox, of minimum 2 gears is mandatory.
Should have a decent set of suspension which can be executed using any method (elastics, hydraulics, applyforce)
Each goal is worth 10 points. Failure of any of the goals will result in a point reduction.
1 Can load and unload a jeep from some bed on the vehicle.
2 Can carry a jeep and itself through a fixed course without accident.
3 Weighs less than 10,000 units (not including jeep).
4 Fits inside a 4x6x6 PHX box.
5 Is propelled by a thruster piston engine using a gearbox to power the drive wheels.
Each vehicle will be judged in 5 categories, awarding 10 points each.
1 Visual appeal - How nice does it look? This may be subject to the judge.
2 Mechanical detail - Is the drive-train just an engine or a full assembly?
3 Speed - Was it a tank or a Ferrari?
4 Power - How many horses was the vehicle packing?
5 Build quality - Parenting can be a big factor in this. Messy bundle of floppy parts or beautifully assembled work of art?
Time is not a factor of the contest, and there will always be an easy way out of every major obstacle of the course in case the vehicle struggles, though usage will bring about a penalty. If the vehicle gets stuck on the course, it may be pulled out, but at a penalty.
No official deadline yet.
Agree with this post if you’re thinking about participating.
