In that post, cgod then suggested using the seed 'hubski' for the world generation.
I've run it over night, and seem to have topped out at 180.52 d:175.78 h:-0.36/8.19m (gen 758).
elizabeth suggested we have a contest, and I think it's a great idea. If only because I want to get pass 180.52m.
Using the seed 'hubski', the person that gets a car the farthest distance by Tuesday Nov 26, 12PM EST (with a screen capture), gets a Hubski t-shirt.
Unless of course, that person is me. :)
UPDATE: The track must be fixed, and your screenshot must include the track graph.
UPDATE 2: With a distance of 1865.85, mike wins the challenge!
