Forsure. Sometimes it's good to have chats here just so other voters get my point of view.

It's not usual that we can pick easy instead of default normal without it being listed, but this and other racers like it are an exception.

But yea we'll have to talk about variations for modded options. I'll hit you up on there. I plan on trying out all that good stuff to see how it works. I'm still getting use to the original game hehe, but surely looking foward to it.

"But my main reason for Practice is because I want to race without traffic/cops and be able to choose all stages. This can only be done in Practice, in turn forcing us to use stock vehicles. Which forces the rule that we must be in Practice mode."

As you know, I mentioned that I can remove traffic and make the SINGLE RACE menu have all tracks (with $0.00 bet). I was thinking to make it so that, if you play on EASY mode, the traffic/cops are removed, but if you play on MODERATE or HARD, the traffic/cops are default.

Would you like it if we made a new category on this which involves upgraded cars, if I modify the EXE file? (That's the only file that needs to be modified . . . which I would provide via a download link . . . the rest of the files from the original disc and/or the portable versions that you can download from online today can be used the same.)

I can have it that when you play on HARD mode, that traffic/cops are on tracks where they aren't normally (so I would add just cops to Newcastle, because traffic is already there, but cops are not . . . but I would add both traffic and cops to, say, Switzerland).

My only rule is to pick Practice. Anything else goes.

1. Practice has to be played, this let's the voter know the vehicles are even stock.

But my main reason for Practice is because I want to race without traffic/cops and be able to choose all stages. This can only be done in Practice, in turn forcing us to use stock vehicles. Which forces the rule that we must be in Practice mode.

In NFS we are allowed to play in any mode because Time Trial has no disadvantage to the other modes.

A.I. racer placement is optional.

Easy puts you ahead of the racers, this is OK, as this is about fast time. Screw the A.I. hehe..

This is my opinion, and why I would turn A.I. off if it were possible as I do for NFS,. but others have chosen to have A.I. on for fun or to perhaps push you farther, or perhaps games use drafting like Virtua Racing where you can get faster times because of A.I. "haven't tested that on NFS or TD"

The A.I. in TD6 are maniacs lol. It most certainly adds to the challenge having them, and is a part of the game. But being able to start ahead is fine with me for all the above.

Anyone in disagreement just state your reason.

This site is based off individual voter opinion, and variation names can always be changed if need be.

All good βœ…οΈ

Time/score improvements always encouraged.

There's actually a tab to click that lets us track our improvement.

I agree that Easy difficulty is OK. As our Need For Speed tables don't specify anything about A.I. difficulty. We can race with or without them. So same should be applied to Test Drive 6. "But there is no way to race without them, so picking Easy to keep them behind is the best bet."

I started doing the same.

Reason I requested "Traffic & Cops OFF" was simply to make sure it was allowed, as I'm all about the time, and it's the closest thing to a Time Trial in this game.

Sorry guys for making you vote for my 2:15:xy and then me submitting this one, but this is 6 seconds faster and is a better quality video (I don't plan on doing this with any of the other runs that I have submitted)! And for those who don't know, the game difficulty doesn't affect the AI racers. I raced on EASY difficulty, but they achieved better times than most people can . . . so the difficulty only affects what position you start at in the race; and, if we consider traffic and cops, the quantity of traffic and cops.
