RaceBox - a racing sandbox

Post by stonek89 »

Hello everyone,

Yes I have YAGRC (yet another generally clone) to show. I hope you're not bored by now :D

The idea behind RaceBox is to keep that "creative spirit" that GeneRally had. Game supports custom made tracks (with paint and L3DT terrain editor) and cars (made with blender). But, it's pretty manual job to create content for the game, because my top priority for now is multiplayer. Everything I've been doing so far was to make sure the network game is at least ok-ish. I still need a lot of tests :D Depending on how it goes I will either work on network code more, or put some effort into creating track editor.

Witout further delay, today I can share a version of a game in which you can play and test it locally, and a youtube clip from gameplay.

You can download it here http://www.racebox.pl/download.html (BRAKEZONE release, windows only for now)
And here are some moving pictures:

Let me know what you think! Occasionally I run a server to test this and that. Let me know if you would be interested to try online race.

Interesting!! Nice to see you kept doing the game, mate!
Any chances this is a RX track in Argentina? haha the layout reminded me one of their tracks!
Cheers, take care and congrats!

Thanks :) It turned into a hobby. There are few people playing regularly. Every last sunday of the month, I'm hosting an event. Sometimes kart racing, sometimes rally... it's called "Sunday drivers 2024" :) This sunday May 26th, we're going to have a 3 lap superpole and 20 laps endurance race. A lot of work went into improving the multiplayer during the 2 years since the first post, and I think I can safely say, that at least 6 people can have a comfortable race (so far that's the maximum amount of players in a single race; would be nice to test more) So... if you're interested, I'm running a discord server https://discord.com/invite/hVJmnZ4hbX It would be great to meet on the track.
