Monsters of ROR Returns This July

Recommended Posts

Monsters of ROR returns for a short 4 week mini series this July into August. The reason it's a mini series is because I don't know how well this is going to go, I don't know who is going to help run the events and I don't want it taking the entire summer. This tour will be ran on ROR 0.4.6, however, nothing is going to change from how things were ran in 0.37.

The tour will consist of 4 custom tracks:
Atlanta, Tampa, Syracuse and Vegas. All of which already have people assigned to making them. Racing styles will vary from week to week and freestyle should be something fairly different to what is normally seen on Monster Jam.

As for trucks, we will be using:
Replica trucks only that ran at least 2 real world competitions with any promoter between 2015 and now. Other than that, the only restrictions are only 1 Grave Digger and 1 Max D, any Grave Digger or Max D is fine as long as they aren't world finals schemes (ex. You can run Morgan Kane's Digger but you can't run the orange one). The only exception I'll make is that you can run the black, orange or yellow El Toro Loco. 

As for changes to the trucks for the update version:
To make things simpler, we will be running the same settings that were used for every other league ran on 0.37. Basically, if you didn't change any settings for SMRA, the truck is probably fine. You can run a different node beam or shock settings, but keep it realistic. If a truck is up for download as a 0.37 truck, it will most likely work in 0.4. Any questions regarding that, message me on AIM at MJFanatic3.

Now, for all of you complaining that we are using 0.4.6, there is no reason not to use it. There is going to be a lot less crashing out of game, so the events can go a lot faster. Also, you don't need to make any changes to your truck, so it's pretty easy to get going. There is also a noticeable FPS increase, so many of you will be better off with your computers on the new version.
As for how you get into an event, we haven't worked that out yet. It is highly unlikely that it will be qualifying in, we want to figure out a sign up system that is fair for everyone. 
I also plan on recording every event and make some highlight videos for each show. 

The tentative schedule looks like this:

Events will be Friday nights at either 6 or 7 PM EST.

Atlanta:  July 15th
Tampa:  July 22nd
Arlington:  July 29th
Vegas:  August 5th

Sign ups will open Saturday, July 2nd at 2:00 PM EST.

Any questions or suggestions, post below.

I have a few questions:

1) I'm new to leagues in Sim-Monsters and RoR, does this change any thing for me being able to sign up?

2) Can you further explain what it means for trucks to run with a promoter?

Sorry if these questions are stupid or something, but I do wanna join this and I am new to this.

Anyone can run, new or old. That's why i'm trying to stay away from qualifying in, so everyone has a chance to race no matter what their skill is.

For a truck to run any promoter means any official monster truck show that isn't just a display. The truck has to have raced or freestyled in at least 2 events. Examples of promoters would be Monster Jam, Monster Truck Throwdown, Checkered Flag Productions, KSR, etc. Anyone that puts on monster truck shows.

Ok, thanks a bunch! Can't wait to sign up!

Don't you think the person who signs up in Max-D should atleast run the Yellow/Gold trucks. Cause they both ran and freestyle in multiply shows in 2016.

Yeah, you can run paints that were ran in the regular season, you just can run special world finals paints.

Are we allowed to run world finals paints at Vegas on 8/5?

Yes, you can run World Finals paints at Vegas. Right now, the plan is probably that the top 6 from the season are locked in to Vegas and the rest can qualify in.

So if you changed your trucks settings to run in SMRA, you should probably change them back?

 

Yes, if you plan to run the same truck as SMRA, change the settings back to what they originally were.

1.The latest version I currently have is 0.4.5.1. What changes have been made in 0.4.6?

2. ANY truck made for 0.37 is compatible with 0.4?

0.4.6 has a more stable multiplayer, it's easy to update and it saves all of your tracks and vehicles.

All 0.37 trucks should work for 0.4. Some textures don't work, but that can be solved by removing the spec maps from the material files.

How do you download .4.6? and can you still have .4.5 while having .4.6?

You can download it here:

http://anotherfoxguy.com/RigsofRods/Rigs-of-Rods-0.4.6.exe

I wouldn't recommend having 0.4.5 and 0.4.6 at the same time since they are the same except 4.6 is more stable. If you install that exe, it will update your game but keep all your terrains and vehicles.
