    Yay, new thread smell~
    *hangs air freshener from the mirror*

    Glad the drivers list is more visible, but could you maybe put it right at the top so it isn't lost in the FM6 explanation?

    Oh look, a thread that wasn't started in 2013. Yay!

    Edit: @Wraith260 You should join us for our Tuesday/Thursday shenanigans if you have time. Put your name in the form at the top and check out the list next to it to add some of us. New People!

    You know guys, we could come up with our own half-assed version of cat and mouse. We just have to pre-make and paint some cat and mouse cars in red and blue. You will scoff at the time you think it will take us to accomplish these tedious tasks, but I believe in us and I believe we will overcome these hurdles for the lulz.

    That is not the time or tedium issue with doing C&M without a preset. The time and tedium issue is the time it would take to set the lobby settings/get people sorted any time we'd want to run it. On top of that, you can't have teams AND buckets in FM6, so scoring/actual teams/functional-map wouldn't be possible. Also, it would horribly corrupt drivatars, since it'd just see it as regular race data.

    I didn't get much of a chance to figure any series stuff out over the weekend, partly because it really needs a bigger base decision first. Not counting this week, we will have 2 weeks of race nights before the back-to-back Christmas(Eve)/New Years weeks disrupt things, therefore we have 2 options:
    A- Do a 2 week mini-series thing and then a full series in the new year.
    Or
    B- Do a full series with a 2 week intermission and finish after the new year.
    What do people want to do?
    Also, a note on the mini-series(or even full if people want): If people want something goofy, someone else will need to come up with the set up. That's not my wheelhouse.

    imo either 2 weeks of general fuckery which is always fun, or just a simple miniseries like c or b class. or stock vw bus series.

    Shhhh teams are just people who picked red cars and people who picked blue cars. There is no scoring other than the team's mouse that crosses the finish line first. Settings: No damage, No buckets, Any class.

    I'm amazed how well some of those cars rolled. catching the tail on daytona and doing an end over end was my favorite though.

    So I haven't picked it up yet, but if you guys are looking for something fun to kill time, I recommend taking an original Mini Cooper S (the adorable one) and putting the PI to something around 800, as high as it'll go. Every swap/boost possible. In 5, it turns it into a terrifying slot car with rocketship accel/decel, and in 6 with the better physics and option for "wet" and/or "night", all I can think is "oh the humanity".

    It's actually quite fun to drive, I thought, it's just... "Tetchy". And light enough it'll go flying in a most impressive manner.

    Hahaha, the new Koenigsegg is so mental. ~1340hp stock... love all the cars in this update so much.

    I drive a mini cooper RWD swapped at A and it's crazy enough. blame eclibull for a series in 5.

    ended up liking the car enough to make it again in 6. it's terrible! but it's hilarious.

    The sad thing is only one of those was on purpose (Daytona).

    Darn Rally Drivers/Scandinavians! They are the reason I can't put up good times in DiRT Rally! Yes, them, and not at all my tendency to blow out tires on close ditches/slide into hard banks.

    I really should get back into DiRT Rally now that it's officially released. There is a ton of content in there that I haven't even touched yet and it's a really good game.

    Guess who just got an Xbox One and Forza 6 thanks to months of working 7 day work weeks? Man, I miss this series! I did spoil myself and got the Ultimate Edition, though I am beginning to wonder if the VIP feature is worth it this time around.

    There are some nice cars in the VIP pack, and if you're into Rivals the VIP exclusive stuff is usually good/interesting. I honestly don't notice the other benefits, but money is slightly tighter in 6 (unless you're diligent about grabbing your Forza Rewards), so the increased payouts can help.

    Forza Polo Red Car Pack


    2016 W Motors Lykan HyperSport
    2015 Nissan #1 NISMO MOTUL AUTECH GT-R
    1973 Holden HQ Monaro GTS 350
    1973 Nissan Skyline GT-R
    2014 Toyota #8 Toyota Racing TS040 HYBRID
    2015 Mazda Formula Mazda
    1979 Opel Kadett C GT/E (which isn't in the video and has no screenshot, for some reason)

    So they did get the Lykan. Also an actual good looking Holden has appeared. The Formula Mazda looks like it could be fun, or at least "Fun".

    Anyway, haven't gotten a chance to sit down and figure any series stuff, but will talk it out with whoever shows up tonight.
