This thread is our very own official Subnautica "Flaytona" Racing thread, where I'll try to keep track of the tracks made and the times set by people, verified through videos and a post in this thread o/

<h1>The general Flaytona Racing Rules</h1>
  • The race starts the moment you rev up your engine
  • Every bump with the world costs you 1 second
  • You finish when you bump into the Finish Beacon, this bump doesn't count towards penalties
  • You have to "tickle" the line as close as possible
  • On "freedom" maps, if your Seamoth explodes, you lose :D
  • Track specific rules are allowed (Beacons can be used to give a brief ingame explanation)
  • Praise our overlord @Flayra, in the spirit of Flaytona Racing
<h1>Installing a race track, naming convention and creating a track</h1>
  • The .json file in the save folder contains some "personal" information, namely your computer name and windows account name

    @Kouji_San I forgot to mention but I manually edited the gameinfo.json file in notepad because it adds some personal information elicited from the PC. I changed name to “arramus” and machine name to “FLAYTONA”. It really isn’t a big thing depending on how much we’ve shared and what kind of privacy we prefer. Just a heads up for other uploaders.
  • The zip file has to be "installed" or rather copied/extracted into your Subnautica save slot folder. For Steam this map is located in:
  • To make sure your race track doesn't conflict with other tracks or the game's original save slots. The folder name has to use the following naming convention:

    "Flaytona - track name here"
  • Because the save system in Subnautica doesn't display names, you can modify the "screenshot.jpg" thumbnail in the save folder of your track. Simply add a text overlay somewhere on that image with the following text. Keep in mind, every time you save your track in game, you have to redo this. The same goes for the edits to the gameinfo.json file.

    Track Name Here

    Additional side notes regarding the tutorial video. If you want to change the game mode, you have to do this in the gameinfo.json file. Using the ingame commands is only temporary. To do this, simply open up the .json file with notepad and look for "gameMode":x, change the value to the mode you want to use for your track:
    • 0 = Survival
    • 1 = Freedom
    • 2 = Hardcore
    • 3 = Creative
<h1>Getting on the track record list</h1>
You have to upload and post a video here, preferably with some kind of timer in the video. The race timer starts the moment you rev up your engine, to the moment you bump into the "START / FINISH" beacon. Subtract/add any bonus and penalties to your time and post the result alongside your video.
