Beta Running Late (Gull) 1.0

Pick a vehicle, and get to town before time runs out! Also, there's traffic...

    Warning: Really laggy! :confused:

    You'll need a really good PC to reduce lag and low FPS in this scenario. Just like my last one, there's 4 other vehicles, but in East Coast USA, there's more environment processing to handle. Hence, this is why this scenario is marked as Beta for now. I'll work on reducing lag later!

    Anyways, description. You're a rich fellow that wants to sign up for the East Coast Auto Festival to show off your cars. But, oh no, it's the last day for sign ups, and the office closes in a few minutes! Pick a trusty vehicle and drive the calculated route to the office. You have 140 seconds (2:20), which honestly isn't too tough, so your driving aggression is up to you. You can ram traffic, but don't wreck your own vehicle. Have fun!

    The Lua file is jam packed with extra goodies. There are 9 different texts you can get at the finish, depending on how you do or what vehicle you pick. Can you achieve them all? Also, there's some surprise features. I'll let you discover them.

    Known issues:
    • Lag, lag, lag! Sorry...
    • Dumb AI; you'll see what I mean
    • Possible untested incompatibilities

    Wow. Just... wow.

    Damn dude, you sure made those pesky police cars really freaking frustrating lol! I finally got a 1:22:30 with the sunburst Hillclimb edition after what seems to be 15 million retries haha. Its very challenging fun and addicting!

    I probably could've gone quicker, because I was being very cautious near the end as that police car always pops out of nowhere for me lol.

    I have an i7 2600 in my pc along with a heavily overclocked gtx 970 running on a 3440x1440 screen. The lag was noticeable, but it was playable. ~40fps. My CPU is not the best for beam. It struggles with multiple cars. But it didn't stop me from doing a fast run! Great job on the scenario btw!

    I recorded my run if ya wish to see!

      Welp, that's the fastest time I've heard of yet! Well done! I saw the video and I'm envious of how smooth it looks, most people were getting worse frame stutters. I love how you dodged the final police car, that was awesome.

    *eye twitches* You've... you've really created some extremely frustrating AI in this mod... and I mean that in the best way possible. Those friggin' police cars and drivers randomly turning in front of your car... it can be an amazing challenge on some goes.

      LOL! The traffic AI is set to Random, but they still get weird at intersections. The police AI is a mishmash of logic and fakery; I'd love to make it tougher haha. Thanks for the comment!

    A very fun way to torture test my 5ghz 7700k.

    For me the lag is quite minimal. Certainly not as bad as the description makes it sound! This is another great traffic scenario with a huge potential. Keep up the great work!

    You may have toned up the damage tolerance too much. I had a head-on collision (in a sedan) and the scenario kept going.

    Despite the lag this is lots of fun and has replay value too, love the surprises!

    I set lowly graphics to have more CPU available, lag was not horribly bad, imo:

      Thanks! I watched the video, my PC gets way more lag, lol. I can tell that it's due to the AI initialization. I'm gonna try to modify the AI Lua file (or a related file), we'll see how it goes.
