Steam Achievements

We would like to implement Steam Achievements as an incentive to help players realise the full potential of VSC and grow the community more. These are not rewards, rather they are recognition of the player reaching an achievement above and beyond simply racing a single player session to gain coin and EXP. The Steam Community Overlay will notify you when you have unlocked an achievement in Steam. Your achievements can be viewed in the game's main menu or through the stats in the Steam Community. It is our hope that such visibility will encourage others to expand their use of VSC and their interaction with other players and modders. Below is a short list of what we intend for the first instalment.

Custom Car achievements

1. Aspirant tinker

2. Garage hermit
Description: Create 5 cars using unique custom bodies in the Garage.

3. Behold, my fleet
Description: Create 10 cars using unique custom bodies in the Garage.

We would love to see more custom cars being used in VSC. This achievement will increase the visibility to other players that modding bodies and creation of custom cars is possible and will hopefully increase interaction between modders to further create more cars or more targeted multiplayer sessions where the cars can be seen and enjoyed by all.

Custom Track achievements

4. A change of scene
Description: Design 5 tracks in the editor and assemble them.

Similar to custom cars are custom tracks and track-sets. These achievements will increase the visibility that VSC offers real opportunities to create whatever racing layout you can think of and gain more interaction between members of the community at both a modding and multiplayer level.

Multiplayer presence achievement

10. Racer unleashed
Description: Race 10km in multiplayer

11. Whatever it takes

12. Can't get enough!
Description: Race 50km in multiplayer

Recognising a player that has spent a good amount of time playing online will hopefully further boost the multiplayer awareness of VSC and cause more players to be able to link up and play online. The starting distance of 10km here would be achieved after, for example, four multiplayer sessions racing on Kyalami using 7 minute round durations. Of course it may be achieved by more sessions of shorter round durations.

Multiplayer win achievement

13. Meeting the challenge
Description: Obtain 5 wins on a full, 2 lane track in multiplayer

Lastly we want to recognise multiplayer wins, and since these become increasingly more difficult with more lanes, we have created variants for all the possibilities. ;)

We have more ideas for achievements, in particular for single player racing, but they may require further features to be added before we can commit to them. At this stage we would be keen to hear what you have to say about the current ones, we like them – they are simple, varied, and should hopefully bring more diversity to and engagement with VSC :!:

Open for discussion...

That's looking good.
I only hope that it doesn't interfere with or slow down the development of the items I have mentioned.
Like the wide curbstones etc.

Ahoj everyone! We now have reached the final stage of the achievement candidates. The opening post has been updated to include the names and descriptions, and here below is how they will look in Steam ;)

The only thing I have a little problem with are the words "tinker" and "hermit".
I must look for the meaning of these words in a dictionary, because my native language isn't englisch.
Maybe you can look for two other simpler words.

Hi Hans :),
we would be happy to update the steam achievement strings for Nederlands language, if you are willing to assist ;) if you provide us with a list in your language + an English translation and context for any special words that don't translate well, we can add it in steam.

We wanted the English names to be either interesting, colourful and/or a bit emotive. Those particular words may seem bit older, yes, or be a bit less recognised but we don't see that necessarily as being a bad thing. We went through several options and felt they worked to obtain the feeling we were looking for, at least for us in English.

Cheers,
Zay

Hi Zay,

Sorry for my late response. I regularly look on Steam and not so frequently on this forum.

I will be happy to do the translation of the Steam achievements in Dutch and also in German if that's all right.

Maybe you can sent me an email (see your PM for it) with the file or a part of the file so I can edit it there.

Thanks

Best regards,
Hans
