  • RDRO PLAYERS - be sure to invite the unvetted members to whatever you are doing so they can get notes!!! This is crucial for their vetting and lack of game content/crew events makes it more difficult at this time!!!

Crew Challenge 174 - Holy Snowly

This is the first of 2 crew challenges to run over the holidays. This is the GTA challenge, an RDR one will appear soon. As in previous years it's a solo time trial where you have set two times, one in clear weather and one in the snow. As I don't know when the snow will arrive and leave the end date for this is not yet fixed, but it will be a few days after the snow has gone to give everyone chance to get both times in.

  • The track is Ally's Holy Hermes
  • Customs OFF - use a stock Hermes only please
  • add up your fastest laps
    • one in clear weather
    • one in snow
  • do as many laps and make as many attempts as you like
  • no run ups
  • non-contact if racing with others
  • any time of day, any other weather options allowed so long as one time is in no snow and the other is in the snow

Starts now

ends - 7th Jan, 19:00 GMT

From what I noticed on the R* newswire, it seems this year we could see snow in Los Santos as soon as this Friday (tomorrow basically). Hopefully they have more days of snow planned in total for these holidays then.

Wonderful choice @djw180, I'm so in! It also gave me an idea...

 

I'd like to partially hijack DJ's competition and announce that there is a mini video contest within in this contest.

It's totally unofficial and will net you no favour or benefit for the actual crew challenge itself. It's just for fun and to recycle some hilarity out of what could be incredible frustration. 

The two categories are "Best Individual Crash" and "Best Compilation of Crashes". Videos of between 10 seconds minimum and 90 seconds maximum, I'll do a public poll so we can vote if at least a couple of us do it 😁

I was just coming here to say I'd now done a dozen laps (best so far 2:07.etc) and that I thought the good times would be breaking in before the 2:00 mark. Well done for doing it already @Lann!

Anyone else having go, remember you need to do a time in the clear weather as well, once the snow is gone

The snow has gone, but I assume like previous years it will return over new year. So time to get some clear laps in.

The snow has gone so I'm setting an end time of 19:00 GMT 7th Dec (Monday). So that gives us the weekend to get any more clear-weather times done.

@Crawford1872 @The_Lady_A @Protocawl @SINISTER120 @Lann @Con @omarcomin71 @Potato @Wren

 

Also dont forget we have an RDR challenge running as well, ends the same time.

@The_Lady_A, and anyone else with video know-how. I have a few clips of crashes, but have no idea how to put them all together in one video. I just have them on my PS4 and uploaded to Youtube. Any help?

If I have to pick just one then it's this from a random I was spectating as they right the car and carry almost as if nothing had happened,

Download/use Sharefactory on the ps4.

I think I've added my times successfully. Using that bloody spreadsheet is always the most challenging part for me 😅

@djw180 to edit videos you need sharefactory which is free. If you've never edited video footage before I would look for a tutorial online. But the basic operation is cutting out the bits you want and sticking them together while deleting the parts you don't.
