An advice. It could be hard as hell to find a city that works as a double to your city. I'm since Monday trying to trace a circuit over a river, with two bridges. So please search carefully in the world.

EDIT: Here you have the blank template of SRT-01 car I used to paint the livery some posts ago. I was planning offer myself to do some liveries, but some school presentations appeared in my way and probably I won't be able to do this. You can just place it over the base painting, using an imaging software like GIMP or Photoshop.

Nice find, Lisander. Is there anyone else who wants to do some liveries, since Lisander can't?

Thanks for the blank template and for the street course creation site.

Here is the Vannish Domestic Motorsports car. The sponsor creates tuner parts for cars from Vangaziland. Need a cold air intake for your VM Roland, anyone?

I like this body style, so I vote for the SRT-1. The other style looks a bit more specific. This seems like it could be a more generic design.

I think so. To be honest though, i'm not a fan of sports, though i'm interested in racing because of how the circuits were shaped. Maybe I can be the nation hosting a circuit

That sounds fun too, Kendor. Describing the city will be a fun part of track creation.

And if you like the circuits, maybe you'll like writing at different ones. Racing RP flows well, because the numbers tell a story.

1. This is an idea I had, as a supplement to WGPC and WGP2 Logo Slick I posted last minutes.

2. This is my last attempt to present eGP as a better alternative (IMHO) than Formula Eta.

PLEASE KEEP IN YOUR MINDS THAT THIS DOESN'T IMPLY eGP SHOULD BE A PART OF, AFFILIATED, ENDORSED OR LINKED IN ANY WAY TO WGPC. THIS IS JUST A LOGO SLICK I THOUGHT WOULD BE NICE TO GIVE A TRY.

Nice logos Lisander, it kind of makes me want to vote for the eGP option. :p

You know what, I'm actually voting for it.

Code: Select all
Rules:

5 Custom/Working Rules (Aboveland, Eastfield Lodge, Lisander, Mercedini, Secundus Imperium Romanum)
2 2014 Rules (Darkmania, Mercedini)

Fanboost:

4 No fanboost (Darkmania, Eastfield Lodge, Mercedini, Vangaziland)
2 RP bonus (Aboveland, Lisander)
1 Chosen by the nation hosting the ePrix (Darkmania)


Name:

3 e-GP (Aboveland, Eastfield Lodge, Lisander, Megelan)
3 Formula η (Darkmania, Mercedini, Vangaziland)
1 Electric Racing League (Lisander)
1 e-League (Lisander)

Cars/Drivers

3 Only driver stats (Aboveland, Darkmania, Lisander)
1 RP'd depending on performance (Mercedini)

Car model

5 SRT-01 (Aboveland, Darkmania, Lisander, Mercedini, West-East Timor)
1 SRT-05 (Lisander)


Now Formula η and eGP are tied.

I may as well throw my hat into this ring as well. In terms of votes/rules/preferences, I'm not entirely sure what the distinction is now between 'driver stats only' and 'RP based on performance'. As for rules, I think we should use a custom ruleset (I don't know how you want to run it, but in the WGPC, the rules are fairly lax barring racing penalties - card design and stuff is pretty open), although basing it on an existing ruleset would be a good place to start.

I'm against fanboost for the moment, just doesn't seem workable. As for the name, I'm plumping for e-GP as well.

eGP is different than e-WGPC. It doesn't make me cringe at the lack of originality. GP, obviously, is a generic term.

Can you make an example logo of Formula η, Electric Racing League and e-League? So we can get a better feel when we choose its name.

Okay, I updated the polls; the ones that have voted for custom rules should probably say something about how do they want the championship to be run, though. :p

I guess at this stage I know enough to mention that I'm interested. I'm going to be running a team and a pair of drivers in WGP2 so I might just do one or the other for this instead of both in both competitions since it looks like they'll be running side by side. It's likely that I'll end up running a team, maybe a Ceres Motors one or maybe one linked to ART.

Here is a design for Formula Eta, just so people aren't held hostage by one logo. I will also work up some logos for the eGP or whatever title gets voted in. Everyone should try their hand at a logo. Just because one person comes up with one doesn't mean it's the only way.

I would like to see a logo more distanced from the other leagues, disclaimer or not. I can use this logo for some other race projects I'm working on, if nothing else.

This has a classic feel, a logo that a heritage could develop around. My vote is for Formula eta once again...

Secundus Imperium Romanum, English is the official language of the boards. I'm in fact a Brazilian (huehuehueh), but we should follow this guideline. Look in the spoiler.

Fala aí, cara!

É bom encontrar outro brasileiro aqui no NS Sports. Ficamos desfalcados com a aposentadoria de Northern Sunrise Islands, agora só tem, que eu saiba, eu e Dainer. Red Blackiland também tem alguma ligação com o Brasil, mas é de Honduras se não me falha a memória. De toda forma, se tiver dúvidas, pode mandar TG!

Sobre o carro, eu posso ver isso pra vc, porém ainda é necessário esperar o início das inscrições. Talvez o nome "Ferrari" não seja aceito por ser uma marca do mundo real, então sugir pensar mais um pouco.

The only thing about the Ferrari name is that all the cars are the same make, from the creator's nation. You know, because that's how the RL counterpart operates. Maybe I can get a car worked up for you though, let's see.

Others could probably do it better. I had my fun type of "car wrap" style of scheme. But I'll see what I can work up, something a bit more simple. If you go with another's design, it's all good though.

Putting my two cents in:

DEFINETELY use the e-GP name. Sounds more professional and just…better than Formula Greek Letter.

I think Fanboost should be used, but I'm not too sure about it being used as an RP bonus. If everyone RPs, everyone gets Fanboost, which would kinda ruin the whole point of it. I think I'd rather go with Darkmania's option.

And finally, just using driver stats should be fine, but let's not make that affect the overall stats too much to keep everything even like in Formula E.

I'm disappointed that Megelan did not added "Puppets" for his annual update...

I think maybe we will discuss that later...



Also, as I easily jumps on a bandwagon, I change my vote for the name from "Formula Greek" to "E-GP".

Is everybody designing their cars? Maybe Lisander can help you all, since he is talented in digital design. That template is not MS paint capable, so it won't be an easy edit. But photoshop, or other apps can work. I'm not working up any more designs, myself. I started on the red and yellow car, but yeah. Lisander can help instead. It would probably take him 5 minutes.

I spent a lot longer on a request through my paint app, but didn't like it so... I'm sure he will help.. I tried, at least.

I enjoy my design though.. But it's a one off custom to my style.

Here are some logo options. Everyone should feel free to find a cool text generator and submit your own possible designs. e-GP it is.. But we can still differentiate by not picking a reworked logo of the WGPC. Sorry, I will continue to stand up for originality in this series. Against official or unofficial ties.

L1 can be the reworked WGPC logo.
