While I've always said sticks and stones may break my bones, words will never hurt me, exploits help us all. Who and when was it decided we carry Electronic Arts water and not share exploits? Several years ago I learned here of a detailed exploit involving cloud saves in special events that got me well into four figure gold, a stash that transformed my game play. Without that trick I probably would've given up this game in frustration long ago. Probably a good overall thing for me as a citizen, but EA would not be getting 190 Skinner box-ian clicks from me. If no exploits was an admin group decision, it should be revisited, if it's a dictat from suits at Fandom to protect another soul sucking corporation and their gang of lawyers, I guess there is nothing more to say. The beauty of this wiki is it's openness.
I feel it is a personal attack about another user and not about the general tenor of the thread. Also moving that thread to Off-Topic did not help and should probably be locked as it is in a death spiral.
Can we get a new thread for posting update suggestions? I noticed you closed the old one, which is linked in the FAQ, Forums, and Hot section, but failed to change the link to the newer thread. As a result, I can't find it, and I'm not convinced such a thread actually exists
The first thread you linked was created because one guy wanted to make a suggestion but there was no thread to post in. That is not the thread that’s linked in the navbar. The navbar, under sticky forum, has a heading for Next Update Suggestions. That link takes you to a closed thread. It needs to be updated
Thank you for clarifying. I've changed the navigation menu >FAQ, Forums, and Hot >Sticky Forum >(to add) 6.2 Update Suggestions, and linked user DrestinBlack's (thread :162607 above) forum post. Appreciate your contribution to the accuracy of the wiki.
If this continues to not be what you meant, please reply and I'll try to get it right one last time.
And I can't find the problem. They look like they match the Ford GT (2017) Championship, but they are not rendering correctly. The templates haven't been edited, so I do not know what is going on. The one for the Jaguar C-X75 Championship has also gone haywire....
Being a work in progress, and more self-training than trying to accomplish a publication, the tips are totally appreciated. Tables are on my "bucket list". IDK why I've been keeping this a mystery from myself for so long? It's not hard at all-
Hey, posting here cos very off topic for the wall of remembrance thread.
I work at a railway depot so most of the steering wheel parts were found by a bit of skip diving. A loom bracket is the base, a power socket flap provides an angled surface for a heat exchanger fan. I did buy the Velcro and a new silicone phone case but they were very cheap. Luckily super glue and electrical tape were available from work too.
It isn't great for WTTT but is for farming.
But the general principle is to make do with what you can find
In the United States, business are busy filing state resale taxes. The project is sidelined.
Here's my vision:
I want to have all series on the left in the exact linear order which they appear.
All cars on the right, in a general linear progression in which they're introduced.
Draw line from series to the car(s) that are associated with that series. I want to code the line so if you hover over the line, it will show the maximum PR needed for each series.
That way, if I'm working early on series A, but the car is used in series C which "requires" a greater PR, then I would know instantly that I can safely upgrade the car now, and that would benefit my competitiveness for the current series A, and I will be ready when C opens up.
*Showcase events never have a listed "required" PR, so it will be tough to conclude, but would start with a PR requirement of the minimum rated, and over time, trial and user input could refine the PR needed.
**This sounds like something I can do between Excel, Visio, and Powerpoint, maybe even Access, to automate the lineage. So there, my vision is on the table- No , no , just a measurement of PR. If more or is needed, that's up to the user to determine what they need. So many special events that help farming and accellerating requisition of cars, that this will only ever be a guide.
I doubt that this type of display will be able to port into the wiki- that's WAY down the road.
I'm discovering that if I progress through series exactly in the order in which they're presented, that many Showcase cars never require an upgrade to get past the showcase, then open another tier-segway to another showcase, then the no-upgrade car is not needed again. Some Showcase cars so far have needed up to five upgrades just to progress third place into the next tier or showcase event / car offering.
In December 2016 I created an Access database to allow me to track my progress and calculate the outstanding costs. I then used that to feed data to my Wiki Cars spreadsheet. But I then found out about PowerQuery and that I could have extracted all of the data from the Wiki rather than manually inputting it! I then rewrote the Wiki Cars spreadsheet to retrieve data from the Wiki and haven't touched the Access database in months.
I guess the list of series and cars is pretty much the Series and Special Events career table. The rest is beyond my (current) skillset.
I started a redeux of the Circuits page, because 1) it seemed lacking some basic information from the main page, and 2) my primary motivation for volunteering for admin role to begin with was I wanted more exposure to coding, tables, css, and the like.
Graham took some of my intermediate code as a request from me for help (I don't know if he's done any more work since the beginning).
My ultimate vision is to pull in the track pictures, (I guess location like RusTORK), track, sub-track variation, distance in Km AND Mi.
I'm forcing myself to do this the hard way and look up how to- in order to learn. If it comes to nothing doesn't hurt my feelings as it's done for self-edification. I'll never learn if folks do it for me. Right?
Thank you for your suggestions. Good food for thought. Various attempts is key. You know how busy I am in real life, just doing what I can in spare time. Of course programming is an art, which leaves finished results always open to interpretation. Clearly mine's not finished. Good day friend.
I run an NOX that I only played level 1 to verify these special circumstances. NP- you did great!
Actually have about five different games going for different types of verification, one is my main profile that I started with. I reached 100% several times with it. I see you worked with Nick a lot, the wiki depends on your updates a lot. Many event tables, etc. Too bad we couldn't have an awards banquet, you would get one (or more).
