Crew Challenge 199 - Mystery Tour
Crew Challenge 199 –  Mystery Tour
This is similar to challenges we have done before. A solo time trail on a P2P race with only a couple of checkpoints and it's up to you to find the best route.
However there is a twist, rather than me place the check points I am going to leave that mainly to you. What I would like is the first few people to sign up to each give me a number from 1 to 10. I will then use those numbers to select the location of each CP. They will be transform CPs so all but the final one will put you in a specific vehicle and I want another number from 1 to 10 that will be used to select those. It won't be totally random. What I will do is pick 10 nearby locations for each CP,  randomly assign them a number from 1 to 10 and the number here will determine which is used. Same for the vehicles, I will pick 10 vehicles, assign random numbers to them and the numbers you pick will decide what we transform to.


So first 4 to sign up, give me two numbers between 1 and 10.

5th person you only get one number to pick.

I hope to have the race made somtime this weekend


Over to you …..

Gremlins [XDBX Film Club 12]
It's December, so of course we'll be watching a Christmas movie for this month's film club.  The winning film was nominated by @Spinnaker1981, 1984's Gremlins.  Directed by Joe Dante (The Howling, Innerspace, Small Soldiers) and written by Chris Columbus (writer of The Goonies, Young Sherlock Holmes and director of Home Alone and the first two Harry Potter films), Gremlins stars Zach Galligan as Billy Peltzer, a teenager who receives a strange, but cute, new pet for Christmas.  

As long as he follows the three rules for looking after them, don't get them wet, don't expose them to light, and don't feed them after midnight, then everything will be fine.  He doesn't follow the rules.  Although it is set at Christmas, the film was released in the summer, and was a huge hit, making over $150 million on an $11 million budget.  It's currently sitting at an 84% for film critic reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 78% audience rating.  Despite this success, the film received a lot of criticism on release.  Despite it sitting firmly on the funnier side of its horror/comedy genre, the violence was deemed too extreme for younger children, and these complaints, along with similar complaints for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, led to the creation of the PG-13 rating by the MPAA in the US, and the 12 certificate by the BBFC in the UK.  

I haven't seen this since I was a kid, and I remember nothing about it except it freaked me out!  I can't wait to check this out and see if it holds up and, more importantly, see if it fills me with the spirit of the season  

they're watching Snow White...and they love it

Your outfits
It seems a bit limited the clothing, especially as a lower level, and it could be easier to admin IMO. I keep spawning in one outfit and I dont know how to change that. You do need outfits suited for the weather your in and you can carry a few on your horse.

So what outfits are you using?


Here are the ones I carry on the horse:

Everyday use

Swamp hunter

Monday Motor Mayhem Mischief and Merriment
Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.
May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused.
While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.

A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

Gladiator [XDBX Film Club 11]
This month we are celebrating the work of Sir Ridley Scott, as suggested by @djw180 and @Spinnaker1981, with the winning film being another DJ nomination, Gladiator.  Released in the year 2000 it stars Russel Crowe in an Oscar winning performance, with support from Joaquin Phoenix, Derek Jacobi, Richard Harris and the legendary Oliver Reed in his final role.  

Gladiator was a huge success on release, winning the Oscar for best picture, and a nomination for best director for Ridley Scott, one of three in his career (Thelma and Louise and Black Hawk Down being the other two).  It is the last great Hollywood swords and sandals epic, telling a classic tale of betrayal and revenge.  I loved this film when it came out, but haven't seen it in at least a decade, so am looking forward to revisiting this.

The Duellists [Film Club Extra 04]
We're getting a double dose of Ridley Scott action this month as, well, we've all seen Gladiator and there was a cry for a second, lesser known, slice of his filmography.  That comes in the form of his debut feature film, 1977's The Duellists, nominated by myself, and seconded by @SINISTER120.  

Set in Napoleonic France, this film is based on a Joseph Conrad story, who is the author of Heart of Darkness, the inspiration for Apocalypse Now, among many other amazing books.  It is the tale of two men obsessively fighting over their honour over the course of decades.  It is an absolutely gorgeous looking film, with Scott taking inspiration from Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon in the way he makes each shot look like a painting from that era.  It also has two powerhouse lead performances from Harvey Keitel and Keith Carradine.



The duellist demands satisfaction...

GTA Rocket League Tournament
GTAV Rocket League Tournament!!!
Special Rules for Event: No shooting, just play Rocket League
Description of Event: Depending on the amount of interest shown will depend on the amount of teams. I think 5 a side will make for good fun games and give us the chance of maybe even 3 teams participating. Also the events regularity would have to be discussed. IE every week or 2 weeks or once a month etc. Lots to discuss, but no point discussing too much until we know where we stand with numbers. Imagine if 20 crew wanted to play a monthly tournament, 4 teams of 5, would be awesome. Or even if we get just 2 teams of 5 at least we can work something out. I think minimum number of interested participants would be 10 to get started. If you are interested in a GTA Rocket League regular event speak up on this thread and we'll take it from there. I think if we give it a week from now to give everyone a chance to see the thread and make their decision.

So, I for 1 am keen, we need at least another 9 players. (please don't worry about times just yet, if you're keen to play just say so for now Thanks

PS I don't think it should be limited to just crew members, we all have friends who might like to join. (To be discussed)

Ideas for crew challenge 200
RDR2 Enthusiasts!!!! , we need your help!!!!
We're approaching our 200th crew challenge, if sticking to my current rota that will run from 5th - 12 Dec.
So any ideas for something special?
I was wondering if we could do a two (or more) player challenge with at least one aspect of it in RDR. But what could the RDR element be? Is there anything based on the new trader / collector / bounty hunter roles we could do? I think it has to be something we can have a reasonable amount of control over, not left too much to luck. And it can't require uploading a long video (10 mins max) to allow people with slower internet to take part.

Ideas just as I type, no thought gone into these yet

fastest time to deliver bounty alive

fastest time to make a trader delivery of specified amount, having started from 0 stock, 0 supplies, no hides in your satchel / horse / wagon etc

fastest time to collect a specific list of items (not too many) without using maps

Chronicle #81 (wafer thin edition)
1. We’re well into autumn now, the site had a brilliantly spooky Halloween theme and the clocks went back for our EU members, which meant the usual confusion about event start times and even an extra hour at work for poor @LimeGreenLegend.

2. Crew Challenge 196 : Dune was a solo time trial Racing Dunes over dunes on @djw180‘s track ‘Dune’. It was really close, with some very fast lap times (@Con had engine trouble and @Pb76 stopped half way round to have a piss). Results were as follows.....

Combat Guide (Aim Settings, Weapons & Tips)
A combat guide was requested so I'm gonna try to explain the reasons behind my aim settings and give my two cents on the different weapons since I dabble quite a bit with virtual guns. It has to be said that I'm still not sure about a lot of the settings so I mess around with them quite a bit to see what works, and what works for me might not work for you...

Crew Challenge 197 - Survival
Crew Challenge 197 – Survival
This is a solo challenge to survive the most waves on one of the new survival maps. This should be done solo in the standard mode, so endless waves is off (because that does not tell you how many waves you survived). If two or more people survive the same number of waves then this will be decided on the fastest time for your last completed wave, so if you get killed it's the wave before the one where you die that your time is based on. If you survive all 10 waves then it's your time for wave 10. There are no restrictions on weapons and no restrictions on equipment allowed.

We'll be using the Forest map

You will need to save and upload a video of your last completed wave. We will time them from when the "prepare" timer in the bottom right hits 0 to when the “Survived Wave ...” message appears, but please have your video start just before and finish just after those points so we can time them all accurately if required.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer [Film Club Extra 03]
Ever get that not-so-fresh feeling while watching a thriller? Then you will love watching this as the underlying current is thick and you will have no idea where it is heading. This is what Lime had to say....
I'm gonna be selfish here, and throw this film in as an extra for Halloween simply because I can't stop thinking about it since I saw it a few weeks ago and would really like to hear your guys' opinion on it.  The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a psychological horror/thriller from Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Favourite), a Greek filmmaker who has fast become one of my favourites.

The film stars Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman as Steven and Anna Murphy, a seemingly perfect couple.  They are both medical professionals, they have two bright young children, and live in a luxurious home with all the trappings that entails.  But Steven has a strange relationship with the young Martin (Barry Keoghan), one that threatens to tear his family apart.

If you know anything about Greek mythology, you can probably get a good idea of the plot from the title, but I won't say anything about it here, because each new revelation pushed me further towards the edge of my seat.  I will spoil the score I'm going to give this now though by saying that, for me, this film is a perfect 10/10, and Lanthimos's best film to date (despite The Favourite being nominated for a butt-load of Oscars).
