Re-Volt I/O - Christmas Carnival 2020

Christmas Carnival 2020

1 year ago, 14-12-2020

This is a separate event from Christmas Championship 2020.

It's been a year and the third act of the Christmas Carnival is about to begin! On the weekend of December 25-26 at 18:00 UTC, we will once again be racing on snow and ice, in decked-out cars made specifically for the occasion.

Here's a rundown for those that didn't attend last year, or just forgot the details past "christmas-themed races": The event will be separated into two categories: online races and a beauty contest. Unlike this year's Halloween Carnival, we're sticking to just one base car: XMAS 2020, which is a 4WD, Pro version of Xarc's XMAS 25 (remaster courtesy of Paperman). Participants can repaint or remodel this in order to have a personal car for the races, and to have a shot at winning the beauty contest. Your creation should have at least some connection to Christmas, of course.

We will be racing with pick-ups enabled on Arcade mode. There are no prizes to win, other than the satisfaction of crushing your opponents in competition. For more details, join us on Discord!

If you want to participate only in the online races with the default car, you may not sign up or reserve a spot for the race. However, if any free spots are available on the day of the races, you may still try to join and snatch a spot.

If you want to race with your own car or participate in the beauty contest, you need to download XMAS 2020 and you are allowed to make the following changes to it:

  • Models (all exisiting PRM files, as well as additional ones for spinners)
  • Texture (you may also include additional skins)
  • Carbox
  • Folder/file names

You may not make changes to the hull (collision) file. You are only allowed to alter the Parameters for the car name, file paths, engine sounds, as well as the addition of spinners and other visual aspects. Unwanted changes to the Parameters will be easily detected, so do not submit any changes that may give you an unfair advantage.

You are allowed to submit one personal car! This is to prevent increasing your chances at the beauty contest by submitting a lot of cars.

Your car(s) must be submitted on Discord, either publicly in #carnival or privately to one of the organisers (shara--#7705). The deadline for the submissions is on Saturday, December 26 at 14:00 UTC.

If you are uncertain whether you can make it to the event, you may still sign up, but please let us know in advance that you might not make it. We need accurate information in order to predict how many lobbies we might need.

Finally, you are allowed to submit a car without racing it yourself. However, while not a requirement, you should consider finding another participant to represent your car in the online races.

To be announced!
