Parachute Race (or Chute Race) is a Parachute-based racing-style scheme where players must navigate a specially-designed map, using only the parachute, to reach a finish line from a designated starting point. The player to reach the finish line first wins the game.
Examples at the WMDB
|One worm per player.|
Players begin by each placing their single worm on the designated starting location.
Maps are designed to contain a series of 'chambers' to be navigated by using the parachute, typically by climbing up or by progressing sideways along a series of small specks. Each chamber is usually designed symmetrically, so that it can be navigated regardless of which direction the wind is blowing on a given turn. The maps are also designed such that the strength of the wind has little to no impact.
The scheme is supported by HostingBuddy.
- Place at the start - Players must place their worms on the spot labelled Start, S, or similar.
It's generally recommended that players, when joining a Parachute Race game lobby on WormNET, use the term "STF" (standing for Start To Finish) to indicate to the host that they understand the concept of the scheme and will follow the rules.
