    How about when we get close to the end, we don't have 100 posts saying it's almost over so someone random can start the next thread. How about we keep posting normally and let the thread run it's course.

    I'll tell you how I do that. Basically, I make sure my FSAA is all the way up (4 on my side, since I just have a 2011 ASUS K53E laptop, and sadly the integrated graphics card on this thing sucks badly compared to modern day graphic cards), then I spawn both the truck I want to take a picture of, as well as a vehicle that has a pitched inner camera (in this case, the stripped Gavril Bandit), and after I get the right angle set up, I move the camera to where I want the pic. After that, I floor it and time the snapshot just right, then the pic goes into Paint.NET, where I use the "Lasso Select" tool to copy the truck, set it on another layer, and then erase whatever is surrounding it. Finally, I blur the background and put the two layers together, as well as adding a little glow to make the picture all neat.

    Outstanding track as usual Chris! I've tested it not too long ago, and it's a really fun one, so keep it up! Also, keep an eye peeled on the screenshots thread, I have a plan for my next picture.

    Version 1.0.0


    Just wanted to make a 2002 track, ended up revamping Raymond James Stadium. What cha gonna do? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Track includes racing, freestyle, and a custom freestyle. Note: Now, this track has a ton of verts and textures. However, 90% of them are non collidable and have no effect on the truck. That being said, you should not get lag. I have tested the track running a 2012 stock Toshiba laptop, and was able to still get smooth fps (50-60) throughout (don't worry I just got a new computer tho ). Also, the track might a few seconds longer than others to load up in game. Don't worry, this is just due to the amount of textures the game has to render. Once loaded, the track should run perfectly smooth. Just wanted to put that in there because I've had 3 tracks now where people have reported lag that did not occur when I tested them.

    It's been about a month since the NFL season ended, and after reading a bazillion different articles ranking teams or players, I figured I'd try to make my own rankings based on my opinion of who has a shot to win this year. The drivers listed below are either expected or potential competitors in this year's World Finals, and not all of them will be in the field of 32. The list only includes drivers who have competed on the track in at least one form and it is based on a combination of both racing and freestyle skills (sort of a composite score of both). The Elite: 1. Todd LeDuc | Monster Energy 2. Adam Anderson | Grave Digger 3. Ryan Anderson | Son Uva Digger These guys aren't just top contenders, they're favorites to walk out of Sam Boyd with both trophies in their hands. To put things into perspective, the last year that one of these guys didn't win a world championship, Tom was still running the classic spikeless Max D body. The Very Good: 4. Linsey Weenk | Lucas Oil Crusader 5. Coty Saucier | Monster Energy 6. Tom Meents | Max-D 7. Morgan Kane | Grave Digger 8. Neil Elliott | Max-D 9. Marc McDonald | El Toro Loco Whether or not they've actually won it, these guys have a presence every year and are a considerable threat to take the win. Some of them are more recently developed, while some have been at this level for a long time. Just Missed the Top: 10. Lee O'Donnell | VP Racing Fuels Mad Scientist While Lee has been performing very well on recent tours, his Vegas presence hasn't been as high in the past couple of years. So while he's still above the rest of the field, it's not entirely certain if he'll be a top contender or not. The Contenders: 11. Charlie Pauken | Grave Digger / Monster Mutt 12. BJ Johnson | Gas Monkey Garage 13. Colton Eichelberger | Max-D 14. Cole Venard | Grave Digger 15. Jimmy Creten | Bounty Hunter 16. Pablo Huffaker | Grave Digger / Ride not known at this time 17. Chad Fortune | Soldier Fortune 18. Colt Stephens | FS1 Cleatus 19. Mike Vaters II | Overkill Evolution On average, these guys have finished middle to upper middle of the pack with a few exceptions. Most of them (Vaters II is an exception, he's at #19 because this is a combination of racing AND freestyle) aren't the first picks to win, but they're not too far from it. The Hopefuls: 20. Bari Musawwir | Zombie 21. Brianna Mahon | Scooby-Doo / Madusa 22. Candice Jolly | Monster Mutt Dalmatian 23. Jon Zimmer | Dragon 24. Becky McDonough | El Toro Loco 25. Tyler Menninga | Grave Digger While “surprise” isn't the best term to use when describing the potential these drivers have of winning, lack of recent Vegas production or lack of Vegas experience puts them below others. Despite this, they still have a chance at grabbing the win in March, and sometimes a chance is all you need... The One-Sided Contenders: 26. Scott Buetow | Team Hot Wheels Firestorm 27. Cam McQueen | Northern Nightmare 28. Jim Koehler | Avenger 29. Steve Sims | Stone Crusher 30. Devin Jones | Barbarian I'll iterate one more time, this list is based on a combination of presence in both racing and freestyle, and these guys are freestylers. While a freestyle run is only two minutes, that's still probably way longer time than any of these guys will spend on the track on Friday, not counting intros or if one of them flips over. Too Many Question Marks: 31. Dennis Anderson | Grave Digger 32. Jared Eichelberger | Max-D 33. Bailey Shea | Scooby-Doo 34. Cynthia Gauthier | Monster Mutt Dalmatian 35. Buddy Thompkins | Razin Kane 36. Travis Groth | NEA 37. Kayla Blood | El Toro Loco 38. Tyler Groth | Zombie 39. Eric Swanson | Obsessed 40. Rosalee Ramer | Wild Flower 41. Ryan Disharoon | Saigon Shaker 42. Steven Thompson | Hurricane Force Obviously the big story here is none other than the Icon himself. It's not certain if Dennis will even drive again at all nonetheless if he'll be back in time for Vegas. Either way, I'm sure we'll see him there in one way or another with it being Digger’s 35th anniversary. The rest of the drivers listed here haven't seen much action on the field other than the Double Down competition. While it's possible that one of them will win. Their presence as a freestyler next to their racing ability on the Vegas track is not known at this time. However, in my opinion this is where Morgan Kane was just four years ago, and considering where he is on this list now, we could see some of these guys and girls move upwards in the coming years. So there you have it, that's (in my opinion) a list of the drivers based on their capability to win the World Finals this year. Let me know what you think of it!

    Okay. 1) Go into the .truck file 2) scroll down to the flexbodies section. 3) find the lines like this 131,73,135, 0.5, 0, 0, 0, 180, 0, Uktire.mesh forset 131, 73, 135-158 130,72,159, 0.5, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, Uktire.mesh forset 130, 72, 159-182 ;RR 47,132,183, 0.5, 0, 0, 0, 180, 0, Uktire.mesh forset 47, 132, 183-206 ;RL 48,133,207, 0.5, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, Uktire.mesh forset 48, 133, 207-230 4) make yours look like the ones that are highlighted. They are normally 0 but to rotate them put in 180.

    Exactly like that! I almost forgot to mention, but I also use the feather tool on the truck itself, and I make sure it's on "1".

    So, I decided to have a little retro fun on St. Louis 1999 with the crush able cars(I added a few rows of cars). Unfortunately, I was pressing f12 instead of Prt Scrn so I have no photos of the before, but enjoy! Aftermath (Yes, I know Bob and Tom is the newest truck by a few years in the photos, but oh well. Plus I had a crash that ended it right where it is, so I figured why not add it) Was a lot of fun to do this, even though I was getting like 10-20 fps.
