Okay, the story with that named car and the drawing is pretty funny, ngl.
Farewell. I'm glad our work has left you good memories. For me, that, exactly, is one of my biggest objectives. Maybe the future will still hold something cool.
On another note, if the issue is lack of players, maybe be on a lookout for a big update in the next few months. Usually, player counts get a big boost during the first, and sometimes second week, right after an update.

Server Update 28/03/2020

The server will be closed for some time while we apply the update.



This update introduces a good quantity of new things into our server, of which, new parts for ZR-130, new speedometers, new challenge sets, a new language and a well deserved buff to the class E Unique Moonbeam.

Plus:

- 4 new hoods
- 3 new headlight options
- 9 new taillight options

Fixes:
- Some of the existing hoods got fully redone, others fixed, others stayed as it is.
- Driver position and seats were adjusted to a better position.



New Speedometers

As a part of newbie appeal improvements, we have made 4 new speedometers (thanks to Skript who made the visual part). Old stock speedometer is no longer available in Accessories Shop and is replaced by a new speedo based on NFSU2. 
New speedometers are adaptive to your car performance, which means that their appearance changes depending on which car you are using and performance parts used.

[Image: speedosnew.png]

All cars bought since this update will have the new stock speedometer. If you have a car with old stock speedometer, it will stay but you will not be able to get it back if you change it, however, old Stock colorable is still going to be available. In future it is planned to rework several existing speedometers to this new style.



New Challenges

We present you 2 new challenge sets with 2 new fun challenge types in them:
  • Money Challenge Set II: rewards $25000 on completion
  • ZR-130 Unique Parts Challenge Set: completing unlocks a multitude of unique parts for ZR-130, part of the mentioned above

Indonesian Localization

Due to an increasing number of players from Indonesia, it was decided to add Indonesian language translation to this server! It is translated partially now but our selected players will work hard to get it fully translated as soon as possible!

[Image: 255px-Flag_of_Indonesia.png]

We would also like to welcome our new Indonesian moderator - syaan!



Other

  • 8 new maps and fixes to existing ones - thanks to Tekk and Rarti (these were uploaded two weeks ago)
  • Several other existing challenges got their difficulty adjusted and car visual stuff changed
  • Fixed several glitches and bugs with challenge series
  • Fixed Elegy's glitched camera position, thanks to LeXDDD and Parik whose help was essential to have this issue solved.
  • Portugal's flag finally got replaced by Brazil's in the language selector.
  • Moonbeam got a small buff to acceleration and its score lowered to make it more balanced with the other class E.

This update counted with a sponsorship and labor from Skript. Thank him for getting this ball rolling!
Many thanks to:
- The modelers MatthewChow, syaan, Mihkaa and Whas;
- The testers yokou, Fayde, Remolit, Reinvy, BrOsKi, Skript and helomyname (tell me who I am forgetting);
- And additionally Kucky, BrOsKi, Mihkaa, Arunn, bk_player and Skript for lending their own computers' resources to render that header picture!



Have fun, everyone!

Temat: Christmas Content Update - Moonbeam and Challenge Series (beta)

Odpowiedzi: 13

26-12-2019, 02:54

[Image: 1lanjjzyj436rwpzg.jpg]

The server will be closed at some point during the night while we apply the update.


This is an update that brings a couple of innovative features to NFS:SA.

The new minivan: Moonbeam!


Calling it simply a "minivan" doesn't make it justice. Moonbeam was made to be the true modular car of NFS:SA. You can keep it a minivan, turn it into a panel van, make it a pickup truck or even convert it into Burrito. Your choice. You can even make it a BMW! Track builds, Off-road builds or even Drift builds are possible. Moonbeam is the first AWD car making it to class E (as Unique). I bet you weren't expecting that one!



The parts:
Moonbeam is launching with a total of 64 parts for you to customize it with. More to come in the future, as it is far from finished.

- 7 Bumper Sets
- 4 Hoods
- 17 Headlight options (including 3 full front swaps)
- 11 Taillight option
- 5 Roof options
- 6 WideBody Kits

[Image: 77kw80opv6xehop3g.jpg] [Image: nnwpbbgsy9695kf3g.jpg] [Image: h7q6wddronhjjrx3g.jpg]

Not only Moonbeam's visuals are unique but also its engine sound, but, in case you are looking for something more "meaty", try Whas' sound pack mod, which already features an alternative engine sound for Moonbeam.

You can unlock Moonbeam by completing the Road Trip Level 3 task. If you happen to already have it completed, Moonbeam will be already unlocked for you.



The new Challenge Series!


[Image: foez23vecbu3lqg4g.jpg]

Still in Beta, the Challenge Series is a feature similar to NFS Carbon's of the same name where you complete a set of 3 challenges to receive a reward. You are given a preset car with a custom setup for every challenge.
So far there are only 5 sets of challenges of moderately easy difficulty, but, in the future there will be many more sets with much harder difficulty, various new challenge types and even cooler rewards!
At the moment, 22 new unique window tints and 17 new unique headlight colors are unlockable through Challenge Series.

[Image: 2z1pzlwn56nff3d2g.jpg] [Image: dwpxhd44b6l57sz2g.jpg] [Image: qdmqor0w5906rmp2g.jpg] [Image: was2soa31690pxj2g.jpg]

Special thanks to Klampy, Remolit, Berkayy, Yokou, Neonke, Tekk, Fayde, Broski, Whas, Skript and Scaftz for helping with these features and keeping it a secret.
Also, special thanks to Racko for modeling the interior for Moonbeam's SRT roof.

Challenge Series car visual designers:
1-1 Primo; 3-1 Vincent; 3-2 Uranus; 4-2 Jester; 4-3 Euros: Klampy
1-2 Futo; 1-3 Sentinel; 2-1 Emperor: Remolit
2-2 Cadrona; 2-3 Dukes; 3-3 Banshee: Orbacle
5-1 Moonbeam: Fidelus
5-2 Moonbeam: neonke
5-3 Moonbeam: yokou




Others:
- Fixed a bug that caused some maps to not load.
- Added a new widebody kit and two roof types to Elegy, made possible by a donation from AgileCrocodile.

[Image: l5oubzlxm63egb1zg.jpg]



And because we're on the winter holidays, everyone who logs in before the new year will have a week of premium granted. Not only, but rewards for all race types are also doubled during this time!
Have fun, everyone!

Screenshots by MatthewChow and broski

In addition to the bodykits, the following parts were added:

Counthash:
  • Roof extras (same as Uranus and Beamer);
  • Headlight and taillight variants to suit the new kit;
  • 2 new taillight types.
Banshee:
  • Windshield Banner;
  • Aerodynamic Side Wing Mirrors;
  • 5 new roofs;
  • Exhaust variants that suit each bodykit.
Bug Fixes:
- The models for the tires of aftermarket wheels were fixed to now present a smooth surface.
- Various spots in the Freerun map that present various types of issues.


And lastly, I'd like to thank Zarig, the developer of the DragonFF addon for Blender, that has been developing the only functioning Renderware DFF tools pack compatible with Blender 2.80 based on my feedback and that has been to great effort to make this addon compatible with our server, making it possible, for the very first time in this server's history, to export game-ready models directly out of Blender!
You can get the latest version of his addon for free on GitHub!

That's all.
Now, go have fun, everyone!

October 2018 was the month I had the pleasure of being given full permission to start fiddling with Uranus. Today, 9 months of work later, a beautiful baby is born.

The new parts:
  • 3 new Bumper Sets
  • 4 new Hoods
  • 27 new Headlight Types
  • 26 new Taillight Types
  • 5 new Roofs
  • 10 new Roof Extras (including Beamer's Police lights)

  • 15 new Spoilers
  • 6 new Exhausts
  • The Windshield Banner in Louvres
  • 4 new Bodykits:

Additional Notes:
- The vinyls positioning has had a small fix done to it. It is now possible to paint the spoilers separately on Uranus if you place your vinyls just below the rear wheel.



During this whole time I had the privilege of playing with Uranus all I wanted, like some greedy boy, but now it's time to share.

It's your turn to play with Uranus too, and I hope you have lots of fun doing it!



But wait! There's more...

We know that not being able to buy premium via SMS anymore sucks, so, to make things easier for you, from now on you'll have access to 8 free garage slots instead of the usual 5!

Have fun, everyone!
