Max - Vigilante
« on: June 14, 2021, 07:51:10 AM »



After a year of dedication it is needless to say I'm happy to present my new solo "Vigilante" which has finally reached its completion.
In the spring of 2020 I found myself spending a lot of time stunting for various projects and was primarily indulged in tank stunting as I kept on finding (and landing) more and more spots which ultimately gave me the motivation to shoot for a tank only solo. With the first stunt landed in April of 2020 and the last landed in May of 2021, this has been by far the most effortful and time consuming project throughout the entirety of my stunting career.

In the spirit of continuing the tradition, feel free to leave a live reaction if you feel inclined to. I would defo be happy to see/hear your reactions and comments!

Special thanks go out to Rainbow for being a good friend and co-pilot in this project whom I shared spot ideas, video betas and all of my progression of this video with, MtS for helping me with the intro, Haywire for the custom textures and LOD fix of the tank, Kingjad for lending his voice despite him being ill and Dannye for his Freeplay updates which found extensive usage in this video and for being a pioneer with the first tank solo released back in 2006.

Holy hell, this was godlike, can't think of any other word that would describe it.

Intro was so well done, most of the stunts I just couldn't believe myself and the outro was amazing.

GJ!!!!

One of the best vids I've ever watched. Amazing shit. I donít remember the last time I had goosebumps from stunt video  :o . Nice to see you landed some of the spots I tried to land for Mean Machines. Beautiful vid out of nowhere  :ajaja:.

p.s. Can you tell me how you setup packer? Do you respawn packer and load it on position after each attempt or you somehow do it easer and faster? thx.

A sensational video, truly exploring uncharted territory with the tank. As much as people appreciated and did in fact explore the possibilities with the rhino, noone has quite utilized it in so many different ways, taking it to extremes of height, distance and precision landings. Absolutely brilliant ideas and executions, you could tell it'd be great as you saw glimpses of it while it was taking shape. Excellent video, love the intro and editing too, some nice bonus outtakes in the outro. Thanks for the thanks btw.

I can't think of other video that gave me the sensation of watching finisher material after finisher material like this one. I think you could've picked any stunt to be the finishers and that would be fine. Freaking legendary effort. I can't even imagine how hard some of these stunts must've been to land. That was strong. Just amazing.

Absolutely fantastic video. This must have required some insane patience, not only for the stunts themselves but for the the run-ups as well. Hats off to you, this makes me want to go try some of my old tank spots.

Just...wow.

(Sorry for the audio issues with the recording. Also, Kill Bill, not Pulp Fiction. Fuck off.)

Part 1
3:16 - LC Airport Ramp 2 Skimmer Bump 2 ATC Tower: Great opener pick and cool spot. I wonder if it's doable naturally but seeing how you barely made it I doubt it?
3:30 - VC Downtown P2B: Looks like a tough landing to stick, and the first ground up landing of this roof right (except taxis)? Although I bet there are a ton of those in this video  :ninja:
3:50 - LC Belleville Park P2B: I love the execution of this one. Good thing the stunt from Beast was done before this though, feels like the proper order for this roof  :) Another pretty small landing for a tank, awesome.
4:01 - VC Vice Point Beach P2B Recoil: Cool idea
4:13 - VC Pier Bump 2 Wallride: I liked this one, a very old school natbump done with a tank. Nice change of pace also.
4:24 - VC Stadium Double Bump: Love this spot, just looks great and the idea is awesome. One of my favorites.
4:32 - VC Downtown P2B: To think that I gave you the spot and then it turns out that you found two better stunts on the same road, should've kept my mouth shut haha. Still a great stunt though, and first ground up landing of that roof which is always worth doing. Also like the execution  :ajaja:
4:43 - LC Casino Nat Bump: Fucking awesome stunt, huge air, tough bump and iconic building. And from the bails you showed it was quite hard as well haha
5:00 - VC Links Bridge Drop 2 Palm Bump: My second favorite stunt of the video, completely unbiased of course  :euro: You landed it so quickly after I gave you the spot which I found very impressive. Also love the execution, nice clean backflip.
5:12 - LC Casino BB Precision: Probably harder than it looks, nice one.
5:29 - VC Downtown P2B: First ground up if you exclude Matias' p2b I guess? Tried it a bit before and it's quite tough to get a good angle while also getting proper air. And nice spinny execution.
5:45 - LC Wichita Gardens Nat bump 2 Hill 2 Bridge: Done this run-up quite a few times here and there but never thought of this stunt. Like it!
6:02 - LC Portland Tree Bump 2 Water Gap: Love the execution with the barrel rolls. And water gaps are always great.
6:14 - LC Newport CSM: Think this was one of the stunts which took the longest to land because of things like kerbs, glitchy CSM results and an annoying landing. Awesome one.
6:30 - LC Aspatria Hill bump 2 Roof Bounce: Also one of my favorites, it's just so nice with that high bonk from the hill. Very nice find!
6:51 - VC Moist Palms Double Nat Bump: It's already quite annoying to get a good bump regularly, let alone getting a good enough one to get the top. And the execution, again, was very nice. Great job on this one, and the entire part for that matter.
 
Part 2
7:14 - VC Ocean Beach P2B: Iconic roof landed  :a-cheer: Nice airtime and great opener pick with the scenic run-up.
7:42 - SAiVC Los Santos CSM: Not really my cup of tea like I told you before but still nice execution.
7:58 - SAiVC Kincaid Bridge Bump 2 Ship: When you first showed me this I thought it was going to be the ship, but landing inside it is so much better. Great stunt.
8:14 - VC Downtown P2B: Also a signature building that kind of had to be landed. If that recoil pcj p2b is possible then that would be sick but otherwise I don't really see another way to land it apart from with a tank like you did. Bunch of painful bails on this as well, like it a lot.
8:31 - SAiVC San Fierro Hospital Curb Double Bump: Good find, and nice to see another natural in there.
8:47 - LC Wichita Gardens Nat Bump 2 Hill: Also one of my favorites of the video. Think I showed the spot in the MO chat once but you found it yourself while stunting for this and it couldn't be done any better. Perfect execution. Love it.
9:00 - SAiVC Las Venturas Nat Bump Watergap: Cool find with the jump over the wall for the run-up. Would've never found this  :neen: Great stunt.
9:16 - SAiVC Las Venturas P2B: That bail in the credits made me laugh out loud, so hilarious but painful at the same time  :lol: Looks huge with the nothingness around it.
9:26 - LC Portland Double Bump 2 Pier: I like the other gap in LC a bit more but this is a cool precision (I consider it to be one for a tank at least). Nice one.
9:43 - SAiVC San Fierro Nat Bump Watergap: Absolutely my favorite. Just a perfect spot and it looks so incredible. First time I saw it I had to rewind it a few times. 10/10.
10:04 - LC Aspatria CSM: Interesting idea, nice one.
10:14 - LC Airport Side P2B 2 Precision: Awesome precision. Last(?) addition to the solo to replace something and what a way to do it  :jajaja: Looks hard.
10:33 - VC Little Haiti P2B: Didn't think this was possible but it is. Great finisher and another previously unlanded roof apart from taxis. The two bails in the outro where you spin on the edge though, big oof  :lol:
 
Intro/Outro:
Surprised by the Kingjad appearance, and myself being cancelled. Really liked the idea of the intro as well, one of the few of this length I watched completely without feeling the need to skip! Must've taken quite a bit of work. Outro was very nice and relaxing to watch after the more intense main parts, but those bails hurt, especially the helpless upside down landing  :( Reminds me of turtleing in trackmania but then a more depressed version of it.


Editing: Enjoyed it a lot! At the end of the day it's quite hard to get a good pace and enough variety for a tank video editing wise, but the time just flies by and before I knew it it was over again. The touches with the dynamic weather, the fix from haywire that makes the LOD(?) version of the tank have the cannon backwards and the transitions where the tank stays in the same place/orientation were all nice touches that made it even better. I know editing this took quite a while to do and it shows. Don't even want to know how annoying it must've been to get the outro done in a clean way.


All in all, crazy video and a new level of tank stunting if I may say so. Cannot remember anything like this ever being released. The ring grind from beast comes to mind but that's also very recent. Quite a lot of iconic roofs and cool natural finds. Will definitely watch it again, and thanks for making me feel like I contributed something to the video. Was cool to see the bails and process  :)

NOW THIS IS TANK STUNTING! Great fucking job Max, this is one hell of a solo! :jajaja: I love that next to the crazy bigair stunts involving a packer you also landed many natural ones, this just takes it up a notch! :wub:

Part 1
3:16 - LC Airport Ramp 2 Skimmer Bump 2 ATC Tower: Great choice for opener, that looked huge!
3:30 - VC Downtown P2B: Good job one upping RedX, looked like a tight landing!
3:50 - LC Belleville Park P2B: This one seems like a major pain in the ass to stay on with that speed, well done!
4:01 - VC Vice Point Beach P2B Recoil: Smooth recoil, extra points for the backflip, lovely stunt.
4:13 - VC Pier Bump 2 Wallride: I guess it was harder to nail with a tank, nice wallride.
4:24 - VC Stadium Double Bump: That's a cool double bump right there!
4:32 - VC Downtown P2B: I love how you landed roofs that have only been done with taxis before, this is a great example.
4:43 - LC Casino Nat Bump: One of my favourites from the video, tricky bump with a huge airtime, and it's also a natural one - who could ask for more? :a-cheer:
5:00 - VC Links Bridge Drop 2 Palm Bump: This is another fav for me, fucking love the idea of dropping down to that palm, marvelous! :wub:
5:12 - LC Casino BB Precision: I lost this one but don't even care, I know how hard it is to stay on the BB with that speed, fantastic precision!
5:29 - VC Downtown P2B: Huge P2B!
5:45 - LC Wichita Gardens Nat bump 2 Hill 2 Bridge: Lovely use of terrain, stylish stunt!
6:02 - LC Portland Tree Bump 2 Water Gap: I think fckR landed this, not sure if it was released or not, great watergap either way.
6:14 - LC Newport CSM: Has this roof been landed before with a tank, or am I just mixing things up with a tank CSM done on a PCJ? Looks quite vertical though so props for nailing it! :cc_detective:
6:30 - LC Aspatria Hill bump 2 Roof Bounce: This is a fantatic find, that massive bonk to the hill was so satisfying to watch! :wub:
6:51 - VC Moist Palms Double Nat Bump: I think many of us have given this one a go after seeing TBV's landing of the lowest part, but I personally could never stick to it because I couldn't seem to get consistent bumps - so with that in mind, this one is a proper way to end the first part with, kudos for landing it!
 
Part 2
7:14 - VC Ocean Beach P2B: Holy shit, parking on roofs again that never seen anything other than taxis, loved this! :o
7:42 - SAiVC Los Santos CSM: Looked big!
7:58 - SAiVC Kincaid Bridge Bump 2 Ship: Great job getting inside the ship, kicks it up a notch.
8:14 - VC Downtown P2B: Massive P2B, love how you conquered this roof (too)! :jajaja:
8:31 - SAiVC San Fierro Hospital Curb Double Bump: I suppose this was harder to land than the SA infernus version (as you cannot manually adjust the hydraulics to get a curb bump), well done.
8:47 - LC Wichita Gardens Nat Bump 2 Hill: Another one I lost but super happy to see it landed, it's a lot trickier than it looks :cc_detective:
9:00 - SAiVC Las Venturas Nat Bump Watergap: Massive watergap with a nice barrel roll, great find!
9:16 - SAiVC Las Venturas P2B: Another huge P2B, the landing looks tight on this one too.
9:26 - LC Portland Double Bump 2 Pier: So clean!
9:43 - SAiVC San Fierro Nat Bump Watergap: I love everything about this, the huge watergap, the barrel roll inbetween, the turning of the turret to steer you the right way and finally for sticking it on your wheels :jajaja:
10:04 - LC Aspatria CSM: I thought you were going to go for something else (I know we discussed that spot in MO chat) but this was a pleasant surprise.
10:14 - LC Airport Side P2B 2 Precision: Rocking them tank precisions, great job man!
10:33 - VC Little Haiti P2B: It was so fun to watch all those tanks fly on to the roof Jubito landed, and for a second I was like wait, that roof is old and the other is too tall and far away - and then I was like OH :o Sick finisher indeed!
 
Intro/Outro: The intro was brilliant (poor Max getting interrupted while trying to stunt), also cool nod to that VC mission. I also loved the outro, some crazy (and painful) attempts there - makes me want to appreciate the stunts even more since you didn't settle with the upside-down landings. :ajaja:
 
Editing: The editing was really enjoyable for me, I liked the song choices, the camera angles were picked really well, everything was showcased nicely. I also liked the usage of different skies/weathers and some of those smooth transitions where the tanks were basically in the same position, very aesthetically pleasing :jajaja:

Best tank video ever.
Cant imagine the patience it went to make this. Knowing the potential of the tank Im not as surprised as some other viewers by the airtime and the holy roofs landed, but MAN hands down for the time and effort you put into this. Seeing good tank stunts these days is a rarity and you provided quite the entertainment.
Definitely goes into the category of legendary solos, Im very happy to see those huga ass roofs landed (taxi fellows can make a good use of the rhino on some of them for some new taxi boost gaps or distance landings)

Not that it matters much, but I lost at least 4 spots that I had close attempts/bails, its not the first time I mention this but we think almost alike for tank stunts lmao. And Beast's tank p2b which he lost was also a spot of mine  :lol:
