Please note that during our official races, object-rez is disabled in the Wharf area for everyone but our boat racers (with the Waikiti Waverunners title). You can earn your Waverunners group tag by racing with us!

Those without the Waverunners tag are still welcome to race, using the boats provided by our free rezzers.

How To Update Your Boat

Posted by Atashi at 2015.05.12 10.45 in General

Now and then, the FW-2 boats are updated as we continue working to improve them and improve the racing experience.

New features might be added or bugs could be fixed.

To check for any available updates, just rez your boat at the Waikiti Wharf, near the start/finish line or in the pit lane.

Once you see the yellow ‘course sync’ light on the boat, click your boat for the options menu.

There will be an Update button on that menu. Just click it and watch for information in Chat.

If there is an update available, you will be given a new folder containing the updated boat and HUDs.

That’s all there is to it!

Get Your Own FW-2 Boat

Posted by Atashi at 2015.05.10 13.01 in General

The Formula Wai mark 2 (FW-2) racing boat is available inworld at the Waikiti Wharf.

Just next to the bridge, overlooking the start/finish line, you’ll find a table with a freebie boat giver, a freebie lifejacket giver, and a boat vendor.

Boat Sales Table

The only difference between the free FW-2 boat and the paid FW-2 boat is that the free version is no-mod. The freebie boat can be re-coloured using the built in scripts, but you are limited to the pre-loaded colours.

If you just want to race and don’t want to spend any money, grab a freebie boat and you’re all set.

If you want to customize your boat with your own texture, or you want to tweak the prims and trick out your ride — or if you just want to support the boat racing, then buy the Mod/Copy version of the boat. It’s only L$195!
