Lightbulb Midnite Challenge BAIC ReXers Thread

This has been around for a while, but I haven't seen any threads on this here.

www.midnitechallenge.com

edit/add: or

http://66.115.184.12/

This game has already started and ends mid-Jan, but some practice so we can kick butt in the next session would be cool.

I wanna either join someone else's wrx crew, or start my own BAIC WRX crew. Here's the low-down if you haven't seen this site yet.

You can buy a car to start with so you can cruise the strip to pick up import models so they can sell calendars to make you money. You can use that money to fix up your car, or save it to buy a better car. The nicer your car looks, the higher your pimp factor, the more models you attract and the happier they are. If they're happy, then they sell more calendars.

Ways to make models happy besides pimp factor, racing history. You race other people to steal their models, and/or race for money. The more you win, the happier your ho..., err, models are, the more money they make you. You have to have race experience in order to be allowed to buy driver training so you can win some now and then - so don't expect to log on and win races right away.

IF you do create an account and buy a car, first things you want to buy is a car alarm, and insurance for your car before you mod it up. Insurance is based on 10% of your car's worth, so buy it before you mod it. Why buy insurance? Cause people can steal/jack/ or home invade you. Insurance will reimburse you 60% of the cost of your car so your not left with nothing.

You don't have to buy a car, you can walk the strip to pick up models, but you won't get as many cause your not pimpin. You can always buy a car and sell it later for approx 60% of what you paid. If you work your models, make sure you have a minimum of 1000, or else you'll lose models when you put them to work. Losing models is a pain cause then you gotta spend credits to go cruise again to get more.

Btw, you only get 10 credits per 10 minutes, so use them wisely. When you cruise for models, never use more than 10 credits at a time. And when you work your models, never use more than 5. I get the same results when I cruise with 40 credits as when I cruise with 10. Don't waste your credits.

edit: they fixed this last night, so feel free to spend more than the minimum.

The game's not too time consuming since your limited on credits, so realistically, it'll only take about 20 minutes a day, and credits acrue on a real time basis, so when you log on the next day, you'll have credits to play with again.

Keep in mind that as long as your logged into the game, someone can jack your car cause it's out on the road. So when your ready to log out, go to your Garage page, and then hit the logout button otherwise, people can still race you and steal your models, money, or car.

If your interested, create an account and post your user name here and I'll form a crew. Other people are less likely to mess with you if your a member of a crew already, cause your crew might have experienced drivers who can retaliate if they jack you.

This is only my second day and those are the ropes I've learned so far. If someone else has more experience, feel free to post it so we don't make the same mistakes.

Oh, and don't forget to buy gas if you buy a car. Your pimp factor and models take a dive if you run out of gas while cruising the strip.

I thought it was for real.....didn't know it was a game.
I was thinking to myself...."I didn't know you could do this at the track....pick up import models....and help them sell calendars"

Well....maybe you could!?

They've just switched servers and are testing it so they're limiting the amount of people on at one time. I'm sure it'll be busy all day today since most people have the day off....

If you steal it successfully, then no, they won't know who stole it. But if you fail, there's two options. You either fail miserable and the owner sees you trying to break in, or you fail by tripping the alarm, but sneak away undetected.

The free server is dragging arse on loading times....I'm almost tempted to pay the $5 to upgrade to the gold account. My friend has one and it's not limited to a certain amount of players, so he always gets on his first try, and the pages load almost as fast as you hit the enter button. But I'm thinking I'll wait til the next game...
