ILM: What's Yet to Come?

There are a few items on deck for the map.

[Update: complete] For one, I'd like to separate super jumps and billboards into their respective locations (city districts).  This will make them much easier to find, especially if you're looking for that last smash in Harbor Town, etc.

ILM: The Story So Far

As of today, the map contains the following locations:

  • City districts
  • Super jumps
  • Billboards
  • Smashes
  • Events
  • Drive thrus
  • Parking Garages
  • Hidden areas

Clicking on the icons within a locations set will give you a description of that location.  Unfortunately, not too much detail is available for most of the available locations, but over time, that will improve.

ILM: About This Blog

I'm going to be using this wonderful service provided BurnoutAholics.com to document progress on my latest project, the Burnout Paradise, Paradise City Interactive Locations Map ( www.senocular.com/burnout/ ).

Most of the primary work is done. The map currently displays event locations, drive thrus, billboards, super jumps, smashes, as well as a number of other things. But there's always room for more, especially in the world of Paradise City.

The Art of Hosting in Burnout Paradise - PART 2

Part 2: Hosting Races – The basics

In this article I will try and unleash the full power of the Burnout Paradise Event Editor and hopefully enable the reader to create his or her own races online. Originally I was going to go straight on to the advanced stuff but after reading forums and talking to lots of people online I realize that I first need to explain in detail how to setup a race using the Burnout Paradise Event Editor. You can actually create other races than the default ones, races can have checkpoints and YES; it is possible to make races with laps!

The Art of Hosting in Burnout Paradise

This guide will give some tips on how to make the online experience in Burnout Paradise more fun and less frustrating for everyone. After playing Burnout Paradise for more than 120 hours and doing lots of online play I’ve noticed that hosting in Burnout Paradise can sometimes be a challenge on its own. To me it is important that people have a good time and don’t get frustrated with the game. I’ve written this multipart guide to try and explain how to host a good game in Burnout Paradise that will keep most people happy.

Part 1: Hosting challenges

Hosting in a open room:

Hosting challenges in a open room can be a very difficult task since you never know what skill level the players have. You might be facing mic and camera less noobs that use 5 minutes to press the boost button for one of the boost challenges. By the time he or she finished the challenge most of the players will be in a bad mood and most likely leave the game.
