Idea for a new driving mode "Do or Die!" (PLUGIN required :)

Post by TStarGermany » 01 Jan 2011 22:12

A new competition mode might be realised through a aseco/fast/... plugin:

"Do or Die!" is just like time attack, but you're only allowed to make a new attempt, as long as your result is better than the last one. If you're slower than the last time, you're put into forced spec and are out of the competition. Alternatively, you have 3 "fail attempts" to make a better time, when they're used up, you're out...

I thought this might be nice, since lots of real sports do it like that, like weight lifting, pole vault, etc...

It would create special tension, when someone, who has taken 1st place, suddenly is eliminated and others still have the chance to take 1st place with their next attempts... Everybody would drive a very slow 1st round, respawning is not allowed (except very 1st round) etc... that could create quite an exciting environment, because until the very last driver is eliminated, it isn't clear what player will finish at what place.

Maybe someone wants to code a plugin :) ?

very nice idea :P
Is it also able to make a point system like in need for speed that gives you points for your drifts ?

Then you could be able to start a coast drift server and install that plugin on it :P

Seems a good idea too for me :P
