  1. @Garrett Hanson That sounds like a lot of arduous and unnecessary work considering you could just create a cylinder shape in blender and texture it to your needs. You haven't considered that?
  2. No one wants you to do anything the way THEY want it. They are offering you help based upon their knowledge and expertise. Trying to do things "your way" is great, but when your way leads to obvious and glaring issues such as the ones listed with your current project, it's ridiculous to ignore the suggestions and issues these other members bring to your attention. They are TRYING to help you. It's even more ridiculous when you release another "update" which shows minuscule adjustments while also blatantly ignoring the issues brought to your attention since your last "update", which gives others the idea that you aren't taking their advice.
  3. Sick air, lots of momentum, slap wheelies and sky wheelies.
  4. What I'm about to say has been said numerous ways many times before. It continues to fall on deaf ears and be ignored. Why I'm wasting my time writing this, I know not. Yet, here it is: The amount of spam the SYP threads attract anymore is astounding. Ludicrous arguments, needless spam, users not following the simplest of forum rules...this is more of a "List Your Complaint"/"Post Your Arguments" thread than a project thread. It's sickening and unnecessary. I don't know if it's a publicity/popularity thing to post these arguments back and forth, trying to make yourselves look good or gain some clout within the community by telling people off, proving "your right", or showing off how big of an arse you can be at any given time, or what. Whatever it is, it's foolish. A lot of the needless bs posted in these threads could have, and SHOULD BE taken to private messages. If you fail to take it to PM, then don't post it. All you do is clutter up a thread with nonsense. That, or this site really needs an off topic, aimless thread dedicated to people's spam posts regarding the content listed in this, and other threads. Though, that thread would likely be ignored by the bull headed morons who choose to spam up this thread. I hate to sound like an old man, but "back in the old days" the SYP thread was dominated by project previews, and people weighing in on each others projects. Constructive criticism was the norm, and was gladly accepted. There would be discussions on how to make the project better, insight, tips, and tricks. If there was a "heated debate", then it mostly consisted of people discussing the path of a project, especially if it was a replica. Not in a destructive manner, but a constructive manner. The SYP's of old built each other up to make better and better projects, for the greater good of the community. There wasn't much spam from people asking when projects would be done, offering nothing of their own. People didn't get butt hurt because someone critiqued their project. This thread has become a cess pool. People need to get their act together, grow up, and shut up. Keep the nonsense out of the project thread. Let the projects, the creativity, and the love that people have for producing content in this community shine through.
  5. So post in the help section to get started. One of the very first posts I made on this forum was in the help section because I wanted to get started making stuff. I'm sure there are people willing to help, and there are tutorials out there to aid you. I thought Blender was super confusing compared to Traxx but with a little guidance and a lot of trial and error I figured it out. I get that people get curious to the release of a project, but from what I've seen since your arrival, is that you've done nothing but constantly ask if someone is working on a particular track or how it would be awesome if someone made another track. It get's annoying. FAST. What's more is the SYP thread isn't the place to ask, or continuing asking. If you don't see updates on a particular track, then the creator is either taking a break or working on something else. If it's finished, then you'll see it when we see it in the Downloads section. When it's released is when it's released. Simple as that.
  6. Know what would be awesome? Laying off with constant requests.
  7. @Chris B that track looks awesome. Looking forward to throwing a truck around on it!
  8. Good to see the post your arguments and make complaints thread is in full effect. I come in here to see the latest WIPs and have to trudge through unnecessary crap from all the poo that gets thrown around in Every. Single. SYP Thread. I can understand people are tired of seeing Diggers. As much as I've always liked Grave Digger there seems to be a great influx of them as of late. However, it's a waste of time and entirely unnecessary to make a post "vocalizing" your dislike when you know it's not going to contribute or do anything. People are entitled to make what they like. Posting complaints isn't going to change that. Just deal with it silently instead of having to contribute even more needless complaints to an already complaint bloated thread. Oh who am I kidding? Look what thread I'm in...
  9. I could have sworn I posted this video in the file download listing/description of the track. It's pretty self explanatory once you follow the route in the video.
  10. @Dalton Erkenbrecher, that track looks fantastic. It's got a good MTM2 vibe to it with the look, layout and obstacles. I love an old school St Louis layout. If I may suggest: instead of curving out the front of the buses, making the buses themselves a ramp (which looks a bit silly), you could try either a vehicle stack, or a dirt ramp to accomplish almost the same affect. However, it's your track, so if that's what you want with the buses, you go for it. Just a thought I figured I'd share. No matter what, that looks like it'll be a fun track to toss a truck around on.
  11. God you people are thick. What's so hard about deleting pics when you quote and following guidelines set by the mods? Eric, is that you again, or do we have another insignificant immature troll who needs to be shown the door?
  12. John, absolutely spectacular work on "Grandma"! Truly breath taking. I'd say have two versions. One with and without rear steer.
  13. Dat detail doe.
  14. Dude I quit MTM2 when the community at the time got overrun by immature little brats who didn't show any respect or patience. Dropped all my projects and left. It's another reason why I left this community. Some people can only tolerate so much annoyance before it drives them too far. I've been in the same boat before. Sometimes a project, no matter what it is, what it's associated with and what memories and circumstances linger with it annoy the creator so much that the best course of action is to delete it. Out of site out of mind. You'd be surprised how much it helps to keep one's sanity. There's not even a guarantee that Edy did actually delete it, unless I've missed something (entirely possible). He could be trolling just to get a reaction out of you lot. If that is the case, he succeeded. I'm not gonna say as much as I want because once again, it falls on deaf ears. It's a pathetic set of affairs around here. People want to cry for and make demands after a specific project. It's only made worse by people like you who are just takers, and your snide remark is just an unnecessary slap in the face for content creators here. If Edy did delete WF17, fine. That's his prerogative. If you don't like it, then let's see you attempt WF17. I don't want to see or hear any excuses from you. We all started somewhere. Edy, Mark, Johan, etc. didn't wake up one day instantly making mouth dropping content. It took time, practice and patience. The latter of which seems to be in short supply for the immature among us who lurk in this community.
