    @AndrewGarrison hello! I remember the livestream when you reviewed my Sukhoi? Yes, I'd love to see that again, but this time cars!

    Don't forget weapons!
    But seriously, that would be a great idea, to have a new race class. According to your rules that you set, it should be called Flyweight Mod Class @EarthwormJim

    That was my personal idea when joined here - like to build something for competitions but rules are somewhat tight. My current position is to drop all rules and have better 'Unlimited' class - only two rules, max part count to be 15-20 and allowed max power multiplier is 5x. And yeah, we need a better track - something like Indy Air Race but a bit bigger for jets

    Then let's pick an open (not restricted) track, like Oceanview and Bandit @EarthwormJim

    The class doesn't matter - the only that matters is that the AI beats you up with a class. Every. Single. Tournament

    @hopotumon I did not notice the bug... I just view again the stream of us race, and appear I reach the last ring first. Thanks for sharing this. :) But do not worry, it's not a problem for me.

    because we have to see the planes alternately.

    or because our eyes are not able to see it.

    The case may also have occurred in the final round of the tournament in oceanview speedway, when I beat @Baldovino

    @CoBros2
    Mod class means XML modding is allowed. Other sorts of mods still won't work.

    @mushr0om this race no last race yes because it was a mod race.

    @ddweck32 Love that movie. Unfortunately there's no way to re-run the last few rounds. Also, I have more unfortunate news, EUCL3D closed down, so we can't do 3D prints anymore :(

    @AndrewGarrison Thanks Andrew, appreciate the explanation, wasn't sure if Russia impacted the results ;-)

    There's no way to re-run the last 3-4 rounds of the tournament with the 8 planes that would be competing? Couldve made a slower plane that still would have won, I feel like Nick Swardson in Grandmas boy - At least I'll have the pride of building a plane too fast for the track

    Let me know if there's anything that can be done to re-do the final rounds, was hoping to add another 3uclid print to the collection

    @CoBros2 Your plane loaded correctly. I just finished uploading the first part of this tournament so you should be able to see your race now.

    @ddweck32 Thanks for letting me know. That definitely looks like a bug and you should have won. Your plane was going so fast it blew right through the ring before the game could register you had entered the ring's collider. I had fixed this bug on all other rings, but I forgot to include this fix on the finish ring. I'm sorry about that, there's nothing I can do about it now, but it shouldn't be an issue in the future.

    @Zkillerwolfe Thanks for the reply, are you saying that I didn't infact miss a ring and should have won?

    @CoBros2 Did you use any parts from a mod? If so, that's why

    @AndrewGarrison my plane didn't show up in the live stream so I didn't even have a chance to race. The same thing happened last tournament, my plane didn't load, all that was loaded was a cockpit two blocks and my paint job.

    @ddweck32
    There is a bug in the game that sometimes makes the game think that a plane missed the last ring when said plane goes through the finish at high speeds but didn't miss the last ring.
    This usually happens at higher speeds than 1200mph, but I've seen it before even at that speed. You probably were rather unlucky there.

    @AndrewGarrison I think there may have been a glitch in the race i lost, see the video here: 3rd race https://www.simpleplanes.com/Tournaments/ViewMatchVideo?matchId=8368

    It says I missed a ring but only after the race ends, it also says that I missed 1 of 30 rings when there are only 29 rings in the race itself

    It appears to me that there is an invisible ring after 29 which I missed, causing me to lose the race despite finishing 7 seconds quicker than the ultimate tournament champion

    Can you let me know if I'm wrong here? Thanks as always! Good chance in misinformed but typically when Missing a ring mid-race it says so on the race scoreboard hud which doesn't happen in the above video

    Wouldn't kick up a stink otherwise if i ultimately didn't have a chance at winning the tournament, appreciate it

    Thanks!

    @Alienbeef0421 I just checked the code. It does validate min/max values on input controllers. Sorry if I crushed your hopes and dreams ;) It's been a long time since I wrote that code!
