New Years 2020 - Leikigo
Okaloi Raceway

Okaloi Raceway is a purpose-built track, designed with spectating in mind and taking into account the various shortcomings of previous New Years tracks. This year, the horses from the Vrus and Alteus New Years events were transported to Leikigo to create what is known as the New Years Racing Herd, a group of eight horses with similar speeds specifically for the purpose of horse racing on Blacraft. They were named in a contest where members could contribute and then vote on permanent names to be used for the race horses. Yqt1001 contributed the necessary nametags and therefore was allowed to name a horse whatever he wanted. The winners of the naming contest were Dinnerbone, Crippling Anxiety, Yqt1001, No Strats Just Skill, 2020 Vision, and Horsey McHorseface. Yqt chose to name a horse The Hero of Central Blacraft. Due to the addition of an eighth, unplanned horse, another name—Grayson—was chosen by Yqt. Dinnerbone, Yqt1001, No Stats Just Skill, Horsey McHorseface, and Grayson had participated in past races (Vrus, Alteus, or both). Crippling Anxiety, 2020 Vision, and The Hero of Central Blacraft were new horses added to the Herd and had their debut here in Leikigo.

Like the previous two races, this year's race was planned to be run with two qualifying heats and a final heat. Since the Okaloi Raceway is pretty short, the qualifying heats were to consist of six competitors racing for three laps, with four competitors qualifying to the final from each heat. The final heat was planned to be five laps long. The races were primarily officiated by Kalassak, however Tuto and Ganxi did the countdown and released the starting gate.

The first heat ran without incident, however after the second heat it was noted that one horse which had not run at any previous New Years events, The Hero of Central Blacraft, was much faster than the rest of the field, despite speed testing prior to the event. It was decided that the horse would be removed from competition in the final, reducing the field from eight to seven. This meant that the 4th place qualifiers would need to face off in a Head to Head to decide the seventh finalist.

After the incredible performance by The Hero of Central Blacraft, the new horse was disallowed from participating in the final, resulting in the creation of a two lap Head to Head event between susxy and Tugagon.

The Head to Head race was extremely close. With Tugagon in the lead on the uphill straight before the final corner, No Strats Just Skill reared, allowing susxy to pass. However the crowd got another shock as Horsey McHorseface reared shortly thereafer, returning Tugagon to the lead on the front straight, resulting in his win and qualification to the final.

Final Results (5 laps)

Despite the 5 lap long race, the field in the final all finished very close, and positions beyond the top 3 were not able to be tallied at the time of the finish. Official results are pending review of footage recorded by Bla.

The other four competitors in the final were:

Ventus2020 Vision
TugagonNo Strats Just Skill

After the completion of the race, a ceremony was held to present the winners of the heats and the top 3 finishers in the final with trophy banners. The banners were a vertical rendition of the Dotrugan flag, with a green and red border superimposed for the heat winner trophies or a bronze, silver, or gold flower superimposed on the flag for the podium finishers of the final.

New Years 2019 - Alteus
Alteus Square

The track in Alteus was a hastily-built square track with jumps on one straight and a slalom section on another. Like the New Years 2018 race, this one consisted of two qualifying heats and a final. Unfortunately, when I compiled these results I was unable to find the qualifying results, so only the final results are available here.

Final Results

Tugagon won his first race this year.

New Years 2018 - Vrus
Bimoomigo Aahrut Raceway

Bimoomigo Aahrut Raceway is a horse track with a 12 turn purpose-built section and a temporary "street course" that runs through the city of Vrus and adjacent areas used for the New Years festivities. For the 2018 New Years, the full 21 turn combined purpose-built & street course layout was utilized. Due to the high attendance of the Vrus New Years and the limited availability of horses, the race was run with two qualifying heats and a final heat. The qualifying heats were to be two laps long, with five or six competitors each. The top three finishers from both heats would qualify to a final heat, which would be 3 laps long. The horses were selected based on the similarity of their speeds for fairness, making this the first racing event for which this was done. The races were jointly officiated by Kalassak and Bla, who both also participated in the races.

Heat 1 Results (2 laps)

The first heat was two laps. TheMooCows chose a skeleton horse that was below the certified chosen speed and retired during the race. The top 3 finishers qualified to the final.

Heat 2 Results (2 laps)

The second heat also had two laps. The top 3 finishers qualified to the final. The race occurred without much incident, however Ventus took the wrong path between turns 17 and 18, extending the track. However, he was still extremely competitive, finishing only a few seconds behind heat winner Yqt1001.

Final Results (3 laps)

Due to the heat 1 mishap, TheMooCows was allowed to advance as an extra qualifier, making the final a seven horse race. The fastest lap was 1:18, completed by Kalassak on her final lap.

New Years 2017 - Darvincia
Darvincia Horse Track

Racing once again occurred in Darvincia - this time at the purpose-built track in the desert. Bla was the race official. The other seven users present participated in a three lap race.

Bla's timing

Official Results
05Blotz-1 lap
--KalassakDSQ - speed potion (collateral)
--AeVDSQ - speed potion

Based on video evidence, it is likely that Tuto actually finished ahead of Ventus, however lag resulted in the appearance of Tuto's horse crossing the finish line behind Ventus. This is corroborated by Fiah who announced Tuto as the winner of the race shortly after the event ended.

Fiah also used a splash speed potion which also affected Kalassak's horse, resulting in the invalidation of their results.

New Years 2016 - Auspikitan

This event was a not exclusively a horse race. It began with a horse sector that went around the Darvincia Horse Track and meandered through the farms north of Darvincia. The race then transitioned to a foot race down to Nether Island, Auspikitan. Competitors then had to craft a boat at the shoreline and maneuver between wool "checkpoints" throughout northern Auspikitan until they reached the finish line near the New Years event area.

- AeV
- Blanoxium
- l_l
- Tuto99
- Ventus

No official results were compiled for this race, as it was difficult for the race official (Kalassak) to monitor the participants and there were at least two incidents worthy of disqualification: Bong purportedly used a speed potion, and due to a misunderstanding Bla did not complete the lap around the Darvincia Horse Track before following the marked offroad section.

« on: 2018 01 28, 22:27:50 »
while i think it is somewhat cheaty and unfair, i think it would be more unfair to unindustrialized people to ban it now (unless you remove/distribute some quantity of the items from the now-banned processes), because for example let's say i want mending books. yqt has afk farmed mending books for a few days or whatever and has them, and they're a resource people are more likely to keep for themselves because they are rare, unlike iron, which people can get reasonable amounts of just by asking

if you banned afking, i wouldn't be able to get mending books while other already industrialized people would have them and i would have limited ways to get them other than long and hard grinding with emeralds and whatever (of which i have basically none) with villagers, which is not something i'm particularly interested in doing

it's kind of like the global warming problem and why developing nations get to pollute more because they aren't industrialized yet

I'd rather have the canyonlands and the entirety of the lake, though i suppose having the whole mesa would be a good idea - but maybe keep the southern border restricted to the top edge of the mesa such that someone can have the valley to its south if they want. idk if that's something people value but that's what i wanted in perilune's west

personally i don't really like that shape (i know that's kind of dumb, but i don't)

Land Division / Perilune [Approved]
« on: 2016 07 29, 09:11:16 »
This is an official proposal for the region of Perilune in the Eastern Mesa Biome.

Upon approval as a region, Perilune would be admitted to Solea and Rift Auspikitan under the governance of Kalassak.

There are two alternate border proposals.

Proposal red is favored by Fiah as it would allow more mining rights to him under UBSR.
Proposal pink is a proposed extension by Kalassak, who would prefer it as it would connect the region to Ione, which would facilitate interregional travel within Solea and Rift Auspikitan as well as for the rest of Blacraft.

Kalassak assumes that both proposals will be included in the region's official borders, but requests the opinions of Fiah and Bla, as well as anyone else who wishes to comment.

The approved region:

if someone else would like to plan the fireworks they can do that

i have a spot for where it should go unless anyone has any objections and thinks it could be placed better

also i have a request: can you spawn in/check horse speeds or something numerically because i don't really want to test them by running them around a bunch and i need 5 equal horses for the sake of fair competition.

wow yqt lies pls ban

kol jk but yeah i was planning on actually making a path ascend to the sky to get to the portal... but i didn't realize that made perfect sense (and that the scale of the ascension needed to be much greater than I had in mind)

also, the goal is to have portal 1 stay where it is.

I'll try the y level thing though! Thanks.

I'm interested though.

Blacraft General / portals are stupid
« on: 2014 06 26, 05:11:21 »
so i'm trying to make a portal to reach horse roads, and a portal for general walking level... the latter already exists, and i'm having problems making the former.

i literally can't get to any portals i make at horse road levels from the overworld... it just goes to "1"'s nether portal... and if i destroy that and move it like... 15 blocks south, it goes to portal "a"
portal "a" links to the blaze farm when going back to nether and leaving through it again goes to darvincia "b".

i have made several portals at horse road level, currently only one is active (at -73, 100) which should correspond exactly to "4". optimally, i would like to have a portal nearish to -73, 105, 100 that goes to "2" but that's obviously too close to the "1" portal pair. i unreasonably moved the overworld portal to "4" which is much too far to really make sense for linking to the horse roads from Auspikitan.

so apparently "a" is far enough away but "4" isn't to have two functioning portals (i never destroyed "1" on the overworld, just nether)

help? this is really annoying and is ruining my silk touch pick (only reasonable diamond pick i have to use)
