Posted: 03 Sep 2010, 18:58    Post subject: [SKC] Racing Server, now with 1337% more fun!

Our beloved racing server has been online for about a year now, so I thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the server features we've added along the way.


First, this is our average player count on game-monitor over the last year.

Image
Notice the rising trend? :wink:


So why should you play on our server?



1. Unique statistics system integrated with our website

Unlike the simple 1 player = 1 point system, our stats system actually rewards racing skill instead of pure no-lifing. You get rewarded for dominating fellow racers. It's much easier to catch up to the top of the board and beating skilled racers gives you much more points than beating noobs.

Image

To close the points gap between casual players and hardcore racers, stats get reset on the 1st of each month. The top3 players of each month get a spot on the frontpage and are given a (golden, silver or bronze) trophy under their forum name to show off their accomplishment!

Want to view your stats or someone else's but don't feel like joining the server? No problem!
stats.php

2. Maps

Our maps are our biggest selling point. Right now there are 623 maps uploaded on our server. The difference between our maps and other race server's maps?

We've been working on our maps for 4 years straight. Each single one of our maps has been tested, reviewed, debugged and reworked like crazy to ensure it reaches its maximum amount of fun and is played the way it's meant to be played. A lot of work has been put in maintaining the maps variety (circuit, stock, roads, offroad, fast, slow, serious, fun...) Over the years, a lot of servers have copied/stolen our maps but we've always been one step ahead by constantly updating and reworking them, deleting boring ones and adding new maps.

Simply put: when it comes to map quality for pure racing, you won't find any better server than SKC.

3. Choosable ghostmode and custom nitro.

Our server is the only server were players with ghostmode on and ghostmode off can race in perfect harmony! Whether you want to race like a real man and risk crashing into a lot of people or simply want to race without getting hindered (trackmania style), you can change ghostmode on/off with the press of a button. (Also comes in handy for people with lag/high pings!)


    Racing with ghostmode OFF (other people with ghostmode off are vast, people with ghostmode on are almost 100% transparent.)

Also notice the green NOS gauge on the left showing how much nitro you have left. On our server, you don't have to ruin all your nitro in one go, but you can choose yourself how much nitro you use where with our Need For Speed Nitro System.



4. Custom Cars

Tired of those old boring standard gta cars? Want something new, something faster, better, bigger, more insane? Then try racing with our new custom cars! Most of our maps now use custom car models. These have been specially selected and optimised by us personally so as to 1. reduce the file size massively. And 2. keep your fps high. We are also lucky to have a programming guru who made sure that the replacement cars handle exactly (or at least somewhat similar) the same as the gta originals. As most cars are reused on mulltiple maps, you will only need to download them once. Almost all cars have different custom versions (That means 6 different infernus's!) Typical car size is around 2-3mb.

5. Custom Colours

Custom cars not enough for you? Do you want to REALLY personalize your car? On our server you can choose the colour of your cars and the colour of your headlights!

Image Image Image Image Image Image

6. And much more!

- Sound commands!

- Toptime ghost! Race against the record driver of the map, see how you can improve your time and get the new toptime!

Image Image

- 24/7 admining, with a clan as active and with as many members as SKC, an admin is never far away, cheaters don't stand a chance!

- High level racing, SKC has a lot of skilled members and there are also a lot of fast regulars on the server. Think you've got what it takes to beat us? :wink:

- Ultra fast resource downloads, SKC runs on a private server, allowing much faster uploads and downloads than possible on a commercial server.

- Constant updating with new maps or new features. We're constantly busy improving our server :wink:

- Custom GUI, all the info you need to know (car, map, ping, fps, position, health, speed, ...) is on your screen without taking up too much space. Unlike some other servers, we prefer a sober look, it's the racing that's important after all.

-100% guaranteed fun!


So why join the [SKC] Racing server? Well... why not?
