Re: Amateur Night Report - pics

Re: How do you see the Autoduel World in 2060 ?

I think the whole "bike gangs would be sooooo wiped out by technology" is false if you consider the Vietnam or Iraq wars, or really any conflict where a large super power was against a smaller force...

"The Grand Canyon? Isn't that like 700 bajillion miles away?" Sunny groaned and imagined the tiring journey.

Re: _BattleTruck_: Has anyone else seen this?

Re: Handmade road sections

Thanks I'm really happy with how they turned out, especially for how little effort it was. I have no skill with Photoshop so the 2D printing route wasn't even an option for me, haha. If you get a...

Re: CarWars Designer for the PC

I agree that Export to PDF could be a hassle to implement since it's not the most open of standards. In the meantime I'll take a look at PDFFactory for print-to-PDF functionality, thanks.

Yeah it was a blast.
Setup didn't take too long, maybe 15-20 minutes. I didn't test any of the corners or really plan it much, I just started laying down terrain.
