Torino 2006 - Proposed Track Rules

After playing each of the 15 events on all three difficulty settings (easy, medium, hard), I've gotten a good feel of the game and propose the following track rules (below). For the most part, the difficulty settings determine the AI's ability and doesn't have a material impact on the player's performance. The only minor difference is Alpine Skiing (number of gate faults allowed before disqualification) and Ski Jumping (amplification of weather effects - could be negative or positive). Here are the proposed rules....

Torino 2006 [Discipline - Event] (Points)

- Player may choose any difficulty level (easy, medium, or hard).
- Player may toggle on / off any game option (arrows over gate, ghost, show button assignment, and vibration)
- Performance may come from any of the four competition game modes (15 events, 9 events, customized, or single event)
- Player must complete the entire event but need not finish first. The total points are shown on the Final Results screen with competitor rankings. Note that some sprint and jumping event points are the sum of two attempts.
-
Use of cheats or glitches (intentional or otherwise) results in an disqualification

I'm open to feedback @Rogerpoco, @Austin Blair, @golden87, @GibGirl

    That all sounds right-I was wondering how the events with combined scores would be handled, that sounds right for the competition, mebbe fastest time on individual runs could be sub-tracks later.

    I've actually been watching a good deal of the Winter Olympics on account of this, lol, learned a few things about the real sports I didn't know before, pretty interesting.

    Wish we had a few more Countries involved, this will be fun, ready to go on it now!!!

    Thanks Roger...

    I agree that post tournament, we could add other tracks based on time and distance (e.g. ski jumping). Since I can only make derivative tracks using the same measurement unit, points seems like the best fit for the tournament.

    I just got the game in the mail. I’ll check it out tomorrow so I know what I’m talking about before I respond to the thread. Thanks!

    I have no comment on Torino 2006 as I don't know the game at all, but thank you for presenting new track rule suggestions in this manner. It really makes a great deal of sense to first play the game to get a good understanding of how things work but also have it reviewed by others who have done the same in order to conclude the best possible rule set prior to creation.

    This is a great example of the community working together to achieve the best possible result.

    It would be quite beneficial for TG's track creation process to include some sort of review process such as shown in this thread prior to track creation. A brief review period would allow for well written rule sets, a cleaner database and less confusion for everyone involved. It may even catch a few typos!

    Not quite off-topic-
    I've watched sports for years, mostly pop culture more than anything, but knew based on the time trial stuff I had been doing on games that I would pay closer attention to Olympic competition than I have in the past.

    When a Legend does something Legendary, I suppose it shouldn't be a real big deal, but...

    Just nailed it. One of the most awesome things I have ever seen.
    Awesome. Just Awesome.

    Thanks for your thoughts Max, agreed: it is a good example of the community working together. A review process for new tracks is being actively discussed and will be put in place soon.
