*sighs* I had wanted to do a racing stream with voice starting at about noon or 1:00 today, but unfortunately, a lot came up. Getting things sorted out with some of our bills, especially our mortgage so we could keep the house and such.. It's just been hell today. HOWEVER... I'm still going to do a race tonight. I'm not sure if it'll be a 100% length one or not, but it probably will not be with voice. If I do another one tomorrow or Sunday, it WILL be with voice. I just need to be able to set up the laptop to work with my headset and get all the stuff transferred over so it's all up-to-date with the cars and such.
Also, I'd like to at some point figure out how to do multi-chats so I can invite others to be guest voice commentators on the races. I think that would make things more fun and interesting. I'm wanting this project to become pretty big, and it's already bigger than I initially expected it to be. People who have no interest in cars and/or racing are turning up and rooting for their guys to win. Having a personal investment will do that, I suppose. XB What I find interesting is that while I personally have three drivers involved, I don't find myself rooting for them to win very often. Hell, one of the practice races I did, I was rooting for Amp, especially when he was in the lead at the end. XD And now that there are toon characters involved as well, it'll shake up the standings so that the results aren't predictable.
I'm currently in the process of getting all the pit crew suit designs done, which is actually going slower than I'd like it to. Once those are done, programming each driver's pit crew AI and car variables is next. After that, I think the series would be nearly ready for full launch. I still have to set up a schedule of events, getting a mix of the different track types and such. I don't want it to have too many of one type, giving a clear advantage to certain drivers over others.
Also, one final thing I'd like to add is a note to all of you who have offered support to me lately. Thank you very much. It means a lot that so many people are concerned about me. Hopefully things will improve soon. We'll just have to wait and see how things go. For now, I'm just going to concentrate on getting by and working on Fur Racing.
