Whatever you need, let me know!

Re: Introductions

I never did this when I first joined so long ago, and never go round to it when I started using the forum, so here it is.

Name: Riley. I am also known as Vri and Creddy

Occupation: High School Student who wishes to be a intermediate grade teacher (Years 7-8, Ages 12-13)

Location: Born in London and lived until 9 months, before moving to New Zealand. Currently lives in Christchurch

Interests: Games, Books, Dungeons & Dragons, The Language of Japanese (And Nothing more than that)

Vehicles Currently Owned: 2000 Toyota Altezza

Dream Garage Vehicles: FIAT 850 Sport Coupe Abarth, Subaru BRZ, BMW i8, Lancia 037 Groub B, That Really Old Bentley race car from the 30s

Previous Vehicles of Interest: My Altezza is my First car...

How did you find us? Through Failrace. Ily Alex I watched one of his videos, then he didn't touch it for a long time, the he did some more and I convinced my fam to let my buy it.

About: So, I'm currently in my third year of high school (Year 11, Age 16) and am a massive car "nerd." My aspirations when I was younger was to be a car designer, but quickly realized that I was no good at art, so I decided I wanted to teach. I love "Electronic Dance Music" or EDM, with monstercat taking the cake. Massive loves toward Deon Custom, Hyper Potions, Pegboard Nerds, Noisestorm, Rogue, Muzzy, Aero Chord, Pixl, Slips & Slurs, and Barely Alive.

My "Dream Garage" is one that is quite strange. The Fiat was due to the fact I could've bought one earlier in the year, but we missed out, so I have made it my life goal to drive one. the BRZ is because BRZ. The i8 is because it is so freakin' cool. the 037 is due to the "mystique" of the car, and because it looks sick. The Bentley is because there is no replacement for displacement.

Re: Introductions

I've technically been on this forum for a while, however I don't think I ever posted anything. Or if I did it was a long time ago. Point is I should probably do the introduction thing since I finally have the full game now. Yay for having money!

Name: Not the Stig

Occupation: Full-time race car driver, part-time courtesy clerk at a "one stop shop" store

Location: Somewhere in outer space, likely Gallifrey.

Interests: Racing, Cars, Photography, Gaming, Movies, Music, Doctor Who, Writing

Vehicles Currently Owned: 1996 Ford Probe GT (Mazda MX-6 if you're outside of the U.S.), 2007 Intrepid Cruiser 30mm chassis w/ IAME Leopard TaG 125cc 2-stroke, and a PVP superkart chassis w/ Honda CR 250cc 4-stroke coming soon for the next racing season. (Vintage of the chassis is unknown at this time, as someone else is preparing this kart for me.)

Dream Garage Vehicles: An ever changing list of vehicles, depending on what sort of stuff I happen to be into at the time. But as a general list, Porsche 917, chassic number 13, Porsche 911 930 Turbo, extensively modified in such a way that you can be certain it's going to kill you whenever you drive it, and that's where the list stays the same, after that it's pretty much always changing, but it usually involves a couple one-off, custom, hand built cars, and production vehicles in varying states of authenticity, as well as the occasional bike or two.

Previous Vehicles of Interest: I have a bitchin' Hot Wheels collection.

How did you find us? One of my friends posted or liked or shared or something about your game on Facebook, so I looked into it, liked it, and downloaded the demo. I have been using that off and on for a couple years, before I finally got the full game a couple days ago because I finally had some money I could spend.

About: Oh boy, now we can get to the juicy stuff! Story time! Lights, camera, action!

Ok, I was planning on doing this whole big production back story thing with voice overs by Paul Newman and Steve McQueen (computer synthesized voices have come a long way!), but then the producers pulled the plug halfway through filming so that was a bust. So instead you get the synopsis.

I've been around and interested in cars for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately that never translated to a mechanical background, as neither of my parents was in the auto industry, and we never had room in the garage to work on cars, much less have a project car of any sort. As far as the garage goes, that situation hasn't changed. And since we live at the top of a hill, and our driveway is at an angle, the opportunity never presented itself to get under the hood. Nonetheless, my passion for cars, and particularly racing persisted, given that my dad was a huge car nut (and still is), and previously was a rally driver. Every year while it was still around and came to town we would go out the Champ Car races. That, along with car shows, numerous model cars and hundreds of Hotwheels made sure that my passion for the high octane world that is the automobile never died.

Then, at the age of 13 my automotive world entered a whole new dimension. A couple years before at the Champ Car race I saw a booth for a week long, overnight racing summer camp, learning to drive and race go karts. I was hooked the moment I saw it, but the age limit was 12 to 18, I wasn't old enough. Back into the future, I was finally old enough to go to the camp, and my parents told me if I earned the money for it, I could go. So I spent the next year saving up, and by the time I was 13 I had the money ready to go. At this point my dad started taking it seriously. We started going to local kart races, doing rental sessions at the local track, and looking at used karts on Craigslist. We finally found one we could afford, and next thing I knew I was driving a 60 MPH go kart at the age of 13. More than six years later I'm still racing karts, but now I'm racing them on full size tracks with serious equipment, capable of speeds in excess of 150 MPH and performance comparable to IMSA GT cars, with a second place national title under my belt. It could have been a first, had we had the gearing correct.

So that's me and my car story. I guess all that's left is to say 'Hi'.

About: Self employed photographer. Ex-programmer, and project manager. I also sold cars, specifically Toyotas & Subarus for a bunch of years in the 90s and briefly in early '00s. So I look to them a lot in what I build. Prior to that I worked in the music business as an audio engineer. I have to admit, I am having a great time with Automation, and I am really looking forward to the campaign version. When I saw this game was influenced from the game Detroit, I got all warm and fuzzy. I loved that game. :)

Dream garage? Too long to list

Found the game by browsing in Steam on the day after Christmas, always loved car games and this one already reminds me of "Car Builder" from the Apple IIe days in grade school. It also reminded me of the Commodore 64 game "Street Rod". Yes, that should show how old I am.

Previous Garage: 1973 Ford Country Squire (my family's car when I was little), 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit (my first car), 1998 Volkswagen Passat (the only car I ever bought brand new).

I found Automation after looking for an engine building simulator. I got a lot more than that! Like Willie said, this really does remind me of Car Builder, as well as Detroit.

My main company in Automation is Guentherstrass AG. They first began as an armored car manufacturer under a different name just before World War 1. They continued under that other name until 1945, when 24 year old Heinrich Guentherstrass and his brothers Emil and Werner purchased the company. Their factory was located in Stuttgart, right next door to Porsche. They began designing a "people's car" cheap enough for post-war Germany. Thus began the Model 1. The Model 1 continued in production from 1945 until 1947, when it was replaced by the updated Model 2. In 1949, however, we began production of the Guentherstrass Grosser for the German government. It was simply the most luxurious car ever to come out of mainland Europe. Guentherstrass then became the luxury maker it is today. The Grosser, by the way, is still in production today.
Guentherstrass AG: Refinement in Motion. Since 1945.

I first came across Automation when I got sick of those stupid online car editors. And I am not talking about 3dtuning or Stuner. I loved 3dtuning and I did not even know about Stuner. I did not want to edit cars anymore, and I wanted to make some of my own creations. I searched a lot for good car creators, and I saw Automation! I had the demo for a bit, and on Christmas, I got money that I was allowed to use to get Automation, and I have been happy ever since.
