The preliminary round of The mrxak Challenge has begun. See (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/webboard/Forum9/HTML/003895.html#")The mrxak Challenge(/url) for more information about what this is. This competition is a test, to evaluate interest and the ability to carry out these competitions in an orderly fashion. If results are good, the first official challenge will comence soon afterwards.
This challenge falls under the "easy" category. There are no actual awards except bragging rights for completing this challenge the fastest. As usual, extra points (and potential awards) are given for creativity and interesting programing. All winners will have their names recorded in some yet-to-be-determined way for all to see. The most likely would be on my (url="http://"http://www.evula.org/mrxak/")evula.org site(/url). Runners-up will also be listed.
"The Race" - EV Nova
Create a mission available 100% of the time (new pilot) in the BBS system on a planet/gövt of your choosing or on all inhabited planets. The mission will be called "The Race". Once the player accepts this mission, they are placed into an unarmed racing viper. They must fly through (but not land except for refuels only) 10 spread-out waypoint systems in a particular order (made obvious to the player in some way) before reaching the finish line. There must be three other racers you are competing with. They must travel in a fairly efficient route in such a way that they will come in ahead of you if you are too slow. You must be able to see other racers along the way depending on where you go and how far behind or ahead of the other racers you are. There must be judges that inform you in-system of your place in the race, and what rank you finish in when you reach the finish line. These judges will tell you that you've officially checked in at a waypoint, or inform you if you are at the wrong waypoint. Pay must be given in differing amounts based on your rank. 10,000 credits for first place, 5,000 for second place, and 1,000 for third place. When you land at any planet for refueling, you must be able to see who is in what rank through the bar's news channel. Mission description text is neccessary. This must be fully complete story-wise.
Clarifications: The player determines their fate to some degree by choosing an efficient course through the race. The opponent racers will win with greater odds the longer you take to finish the race. Flying a perfect course should win most of the time, but being a few days off of a perfect race will not neccessarily mean certain defeat. The farther off course the player gets, the greater the chances of losing. Each opponent must have its own independant randomness, and be tracked seperately through the course.
Remember: You must send your plug-ins to me as soon as you feel they are complete. You must also include a file (pdf, rtf, or txt) describing the steps neccesary for me to test the plug, and a break-down of how you accomplished the task, and a description of what each resource does (by type and ID number). Instead of a file, you may choose to have this text in the body of the email you send the plug with. Any questions about the competition or the challenge itself should be emailed to me or posted here.
