The Renaissance Cup was a multiplayer exocraft racing championship hosted by the Galactic Hub.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Renaissance Cup was a multiplayer exocraft racing championship hosted by the Galactic Hub. It was essentially the "new version" of the old Galactic Hub Cup. Efforts to repurpose Renaissance Cup racetracks for regular racing, now that the Cup has concluded, are currently underway.

The following text in this section was from before the Cup concluded:

This is not a Galactic Hub-only event: all NMS players are welcome to join! However, some bases may be quite distant from their Portals, so make sure you will have enough time to reach the race before it begins. Do not claim a base on the same planet as a racetrack for the purpose of long-distance Portal travel, or you will overwrite the racetrack base. (You can claim a base if you turn Base Sharing off, but please remember to remove your base from the system before turning it back on.)

Players can compete against each other in real-time and/or on the leaderboards at separate times by beating each others' scores.

Although you can't see other players' exocrafts, you can at least see them as floating orbs / "Glitches." This allows you to compete against other players or spectate ongoing races.

Schedule[edit | edit source]

The Renaissance Cup was a 7-day-long event which concluded on October 29, 2017.

Simultaneous Start[edit | edit source]

The only challenge to multiplayer racing is making sure all players begin racing at the same time. For this purpose, we will use the Coordinated Universal Time clock. Players will press "Begin race" (R3) at 5:00 PM exactly.

Because of Rule 1, this measure is mostly just to ensure the race is fun for everyone and well-synchronized - it's not possible to cheat on the leaderboards by starting the race early.

Real-world Prizes[edit | edit source]

The winners of the Renaissance Cup will win real-world prizes! Prizes were physically manufactured by AndyKrycek6 using morgvom_org's art.

Rules[edit | edit source]

  1. All racers must include a screenshot or video of their time for it to be an official record. Images must be standard PS4 screenshots: not cropped or camera pictures of TV screens.
  2. All racers must use the vehicle indicated on this page (ie, can't use a Nomad for a Roamer track and actually enter the time).
  3. All racers should have fully upgraded vehicles. No restrictions on Boost upgrades, etc.
  4. Records are subject to discretion and disqualification on behalf of the Galactic Hub Staff if image editing is suspected.

How to Compete[edit | edit source]

Competing in the Renaissance Cup is easy: just show up on time! If you can't make it to the scheduled real-time races, you can race any of the tracks early or late, until the 30th when the winner is announced.

If you're unable to edit the Wiki, just send the screenshot of your lap time to 7101334 or any other Galactic Hub Staff member.

PS4[edit | edit source]

23rd: Asgard Valley Circuit - Syn1334[edit | edit source]

Asgard Valley Circuit

After using a ramp to launch you off a massive cliff, this frozen-forest race takes you winding up and down a mountain ridge, before again launching you across the valley. Right before the finish line, you will be required to climb a cliff in your Nomad, timing your boosts carefully to scale the vertical cliff.

  • Location: Asgard, HUB1-X$-201 Hendrix
  • Vehicle(s): Nomad only
  • Difficulty: Medium-to-Hard
  • Portal Address: Due to a game glitch, this address (although it was obtained in-game and double-checked) leads to the wrong planet in the right system. You can still use this to place a waypoint and then warp there, if you're in Hub Space.
