Test : Everybody’s Golf 6 (Vita) | 60S Today

22

Malgré cette orientation “tous publics”, on constate rapidement que cet épisode n’oublie pas les anciens, avec une difficulté nettement rehaussée, dans la lignée de la version PS3. Cela tient d’abord aux parcours, certes peu nombreux – six en tout -, mais incroyablement retors, comme si les développeurs avaient pris un malin plaisir à poser les bunkers et les obstacles aux pires endroits possibles. Même constat pour les greens aux dénivelés beaucoup plus marqués que par le passé. Le timing a lui aussi gagné en exigence : dès que l’on s’écarte un peu d’un Just Impact, avec la jolie note de musique correspondante, la trajectoire n’est plus assurée comme avant, au point de s’écarter dangereusement du résultat attendu.

Même les personnages débutants, censés compenser leur manque de puissance par une précision et une qualité d’impact au millipoil, sont soumis à cette dure réalité. Plus que jamais, il va falloir apprendre à jouer safe, et à tenir compte de la force du vent et des dénivelés pour ne pas finir au fond de la grille, une fois les niveaux de difficulté supérieurs débloqués. Dommage que la force du vent ne soit pas directement chiffrée (seul un point d’interrogation apparaît), ce qui oblige votre petit avatar à lancer des brins d’herbe (touche bas) pour éviter les mauvaises surprises. C’est un fait : Everybody’s Golf 6 est beaucoup plus exigeant que les dernières versions portables en date, et de fait un peu moins accessible. Pour retrouver des sensations – et une tolérance – plus proches des moutures PSP, rien n’empêche cependant de taquiner le mode Easy avant de lancer le parcours.

Prends un ticket

L’orientation compétition / jeu en ligne compte sans doute pour beaucoup dans ce regain de difficulté. Logique, après tout, de vouloir offrir une vraie marge de progression en distinguant les brutes des joueurs occasionnels. De ce côté, l’interface de Everybody’s Golf 6 est clairement pensée autour du online. Dès la page d’accueil, cet épisode propose plusieurs liens directs vers le site officiel, les salons en ligne, les tournois quotidiens, et, bien sûr, le PlayStation Store pour les éventuels contenus téléchargeables. C’est d’ailleurs par ce biais que l’on récupère le passe en ligne, nécessaire pour profiter du contenu – et limiter au passage le phénomène de l’occasion pour Sony. Les tournois quotidiens fonctionnent sur un principe d’upload de résultats, à raison de trois parcours par jour, deux de 9, un complet. Bonne idée, le jeu a le bon goût d’afficher un pourcentage du nombre de coups joués, tout en mettant à jour le classement après chaque trou, histoire de voir si votre eagle miraculeux vous fait grimper d’une centaine de places dans la hiérarchie. Le jeu sauvegardant en permanence, un tournoi déjà joué restera grisé jusqu’à la mise à jour du lendemain.

Les salons en ligne sont eux l’occasion de discuter avec les joueurs présents dans la room, en baladant le petit avatar customisé par vos soins dans cette petite salle de jeu. Les interactions possibles se limitent à gambader, taper dans un ballon, s’asseoir ou lancer quelques animations pré-enregistrées. Malheureusement le clavier virtuel masque tout l’écran, du moins au moment du test (ver. 1.03), ce qui complique forcément les discussions, malgré la présence d’un récap des logs. Aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraître, il faut réserver sa participation aux matchs en ligne : impossible pour le moment de créer une room privée pour confronter un ami qui vous aurait directement rejoint sur les serveurs, il faudra se retrouver en choisissant le même tournoi ; l’option jeu à distance est cependant prévue dans le courant de l’année.

Une liste des sessions apparaît alors, avec un horaire précis de début et de fin, et quelques indications sur les règles éventuelles (restrictions de persos, niveaux). Une fois la session réservée, le jeu décompte le temps restant jusqu’à la sonnette d’alarme et l’ouverture des hostilités. Une liste de joueurs s’affiche alors à l’écran (jusqu’à 30 en simultané pour un même parcours), même si chacun joue dans son coin avec une limite de temps. Là encore, il faudra attendre que tout le monde ait fini pour passer au trou suivant, avec quelques infos en temps réel sur les joueurs qui n’ont pas fini, et un bilan du trou joué (meilleur drive). C’est globalement bien fait, même si le processus est vite laborieux : sans mode spectateur, on passe le plus clair de son temps à attendre, que ce soit pour lancer la session ou jouer le trou suivant. Un peu pénible, d’autant plus qu’il est impossible de réserver plusieurs sessions à la fois pour limiter l’attente au prochain tour.

Ca swingue

Pour ne pas devenir la risée des meilleurs joueurs, il faudra se résoudre à de longues sessions d’entraînement en solo. On retrouve cette progression typique de la série, qui permet de débloquer des tournois de plus en plus difficiles en faisant le plein de sous, afin de s’offrir de meilleurs clubs et des personnages évolués à des prix indécents. Comme dans les précédents volets de la série, le jeu récompense une utilisation régulière d’un même golfeur avec de nombreux bonus, comme un stock de tirs puissants, ou des variantes de tirs, pour réajuster la force du coup en dernière minute. La victoire en tournoi vous rapportera des étoiles, nécessaires pour débloquer le Versus de la ligue correspondante, sésame pour passer à la catégorie suivante. Évidemment, plus on tutoie l’élite, et plus les critères se durcissent, avec un nombre moyen de coups sous le par vraiment bas – d’où la difficulté rehaussée.

Pour être sûr que les joueurs y reviennent, chaque parcours dissimule également un objectif caché, seul moyen de débloquer une couronne en guise de récompense ; à la manière des étoiles, les couronnes permettront de débloquer d’autres Match Play encore plus vicelards. Bref, les joueurs qui souhaiteraient faire l’acquisition des innombrables bonus (costumes, BGM, illustrations, objets pour avatar) peuvent être rassurés : le challenge comme le contenu répondent présent. Et qui sait, avec le tout en ligne, peut-être bénéficierez-vous de promotions au fil de la saison, comme ce fut le cas pour le passage de la nouvelle année, avec des prix 33% moins chers.

Sur le plan technique enfin, Everybody’s Golf 6 ne réalise pas de miracle, se contentant de ce qu’il sait faire de mieux : des graphismes naïfs mais clean, même si tout cela manque encore un peu de contraste, avec une luminosité un brin surexposée. Les thèmes musicaux parfaitement oubliables s’inscrivent eux aussi dans la lignée de la série. Au-delà de l’aspect réseau particulièrement bien exploité, le jeu tire parti des fonctionnalités de la console, avec une intégration du tactile in-game pour naviguer facilement et afficher quelques infos une fois sur le parcours. Il est également possible de jongler avec les différentes caméras d’un simple glissé de doigt. Les fonctionnalités gyroscopiques de la console sont sollicitées pour doper l’effet des super tirs, à condition de secouer la machine dans le bon timing. Gadget, en effet. A noter enfin que Everybody’s Golf 6 fait partie de la longue liste des jeux Vita où la carte mémoire est un prérequis au lancement du jeu, avec 4 Mo d’installation. On ne sait jamais.

Flags of Our Foul-Ups | 60S Today

Flags of Our Foul-Ups

Flags of Our Foul-Ups is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Quick walkthrough

Side Quest: Flags of Our Foul-Ups Talk to Sgt. McCredie. Talk to O’Hanrahan and follow his 60stoday.com to Mags and follow her 60stoday.com to Poindexter and follow his 60stoday.com to Razz and follow his advice. Talk to Mags, Poindexter and Razz and convince them to work together with speech checks for 60stoday.com the squad to the firing range and teach them, successful on a guns and explosive 60stoday.com to the two computer terminals and alter the squad’s records, the second terminal requiring a science 60stoday.com to Red Rock Canyon and talk to Jack, then bring the psycho package back to Razz. Reward: Varying XP depending on actionsNCR fame

Detailed walkthrough

Start the quest by talking to Sgt. McCredie.

Follow O’Hanrahan’s advice

Talk to O’Hanrahan about talking to the whole troop about improving teamwork and strengthening their relationships. The Courier will need to pass a Speech check of 40 to convince Poindexter, Mags and Razz. The Courier will gain experience for each party member that is convinced.

The Courier will receive 40 XP for each of the members convinced and then 200 XP once complete (Total XP = 320) and positive fame with the NCR. Additionally, the team looks to be working well together.

Follow Mags’ advice

Use Mags’ advice and teach the squad. The player character will need a Guns skill of 45 and an Explosives skill of 45 to get the squad to pass the firing and grenade range. The player character will need to pass a Guns check of 25, 35 and 45 respectively for this choice. The player character will also need to pass an Explosives check of 25, 35 and 45 respectively.

The player character will receive 200 XP and additional (31+43+55)*2=258 XP (with 10% gain) while teaching the squad and positive fame with the NCR. Additionally, the team looks to be working well together.

Follow Poindexter’s advice

Suggest to Poindexter that the system could be cheated. He’ll give the advice to hack the terminal in the House Lodge so that the squad doesn’t have to do any work.

There are two hackable computers. The one in the lobby requires no Science skill, but it must be accessed when nobody is looking. The other one needs a Science skill of 75 but can be accessed at any time.

NCR infamy will be increased and Karma will be lost when the player character alters the records, but upon completion of the quest, 200 XP and positive fame with NCR will be received.

Follow Razz’s advice

Listen to Razz, who will have the squad take Psycho. The player character must talk to Jack in Red Rock Canyon to get a suspicious package.

Completing this quest gives 200 XP and positive fame with the NCR. Providing the misfits with drugs has no effect on Karma.

Quest stages

Notes

  • The new dialogue options are buried in conversation paths that the player character has already taken. Some dialogue will have to be repeated with Poindexter, Mags and Razz in order to obtain the new Speech options.
    • The Speech check is after the player character asks them about their squadmates, which is always the second line in the dialogue choice box.
  • Once the player character starts a quest arc, another cannot be picked up; e.g. if the player character starts with Mags and does not have the skill, it is not possible to pick up the quest arc with Poindexter until the first quest arc is completed.
  • If the player character chooses to train the troops’ skill with weapons, they cannot do so if the squad’s rifles have been removed from their inventories. If this happens, the troops will immediately go to using grenades and the quest won’t be able to be completed.
  • The player character can follow part of O’Hanrahan’s advice, gaining experience for talking to each squadmate (40×3), then instead of returning to O’Hanrahan to finish the quest, go and complete Mags’ training the squad at the firing range.
  • After the quest is completed, Mr. New Vegas may be heard talking on the radio about how a “young band of soldiers shattered NCR records on a combat readiness assessment at Camp Golf.” This could be none other than the Misfits finally working together.
  • When the Courier begins to train the squad in grenades, Mags says that they have the dummy grenades ready, they appear to throw live grenades, but a check of their inventory shows they are coded to only do 1 damage.
  • On fast-traveling to Camp Golf, a lakelurk may spawn near or at the firing range. This can lead to Misfits squad members being killed, which results in quest failure.
  • If the player character travels to Camp Golf from the southwest, the Misfits can come under attack by Legionary assassins and be killed.

Behind the scenes

  • The title of this quest is a reference to the 2000 book, Flags of Our Fathers.

Icon cut 60stoday.comThe following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content.

  • There is an unused objective in this quest that would have involved taking the Misfits off of an assigned combat patrol, described as a “suicide mission.” The player character would have deleted mission orders from the Camp Golf mission parameters terminal, which was also cut.

how many chunks does a player load | 60S Today

33

Visualization of the ground portion of a single chunk. The entire chunk extends up to a height of 256.

Chunks are 16 × 16 × 256 segments of the Minecraft worlds.

Generation[]

Chunks are 16 blocks wide, 16 blocks long, and 256 blocks high, which is 65,536 blocks total. Chunks are generated around players when they first enter the world. As they wander around the world, new chunks are generated as needed. There are a possible fourteen trillion (14,062,500,000,000) real chunks that can be generated. There are 7.46*10244,700 possible chunks, excluding entities.

The exact number of generated chunks varies in single player mode, depending on view distance and movement. In multiplayer mode, a grid with a default inradius of 10 (for a total of 21×21 or 441) chunks is loaded around each player and sent to the player by default, although this can be configured to be between 3 and 15, usually only lowered with a poor connection home server. Chunks within the set range may have activity (mobs spawning, trees growing, water flowing, dropped items disappearing etc.), while chunks outside of this range are inactive, and are stored on the disk (this ‘store until needed’ memory management is commonly used with procedurally-generated terrain so that the players’ computers don’t have to track and update hundreds of plants and mobs simultaneously). Chunks will not save again if they were saved in the last 30 seconds.

Slimes can only spawn in specific chunks, determined by a calculation performed on the chunk coordinates. There are a number of utilities and mods which allow the player to tell which chunks they can spawn in; see here for details.

Minecraft’s renderer divides a world chunk into sixteen 16x16x16 render chunks, which are compiled OpenGL display lists, to speed up rendering significantly. They need to be rebuilt each time when blocks within these chunks are changed.[1]

Chunks are generated with the help of the map seed, which means that the chunks are always the same if you would use the same seed again, so long as the map generator and version number remains the same.

Spawn chunks[]

The chunks in the area immediately surrounding the world spawn point are special chunks that are never unloaded from memory as long as at least one player is in the Overworld. This means that things like redstone mechanisms and mob farms will continue to operate even when all players are very far away.

Finding chunk edges[]

Chunkf32.png

The key F3+G can be used to display chunk boundaries.

Alternately, pressing the “F3” button opens the Debug screen which shows the player’s X, Y, and Z coordinates, in addition to the “c” variable. These coordinates will change as the player moves around. The player can know which chunk they are in by the variable “c” that is next to both “x” and “z” variables. The number in the brackets specifies how far the player is from the north-western corner of the chunk, so if the “c” beside X was 3(5), and the “c” beside Z was 2(4), then the player is on chunk (3, 2), and is on block (5, 4) from the north-western corner.

X and Z coordinates that are divisible by 16 represent the boundaries between chunks. EG: (96, -32) is a corner where four chunks meet. One of those chunks is between X coordinates 80 to 96 and Z coordinates -48 to -32. Another one is between X coordinates 96 to 112 and Z coordinates -32 to -16, and so on. When either X or Z crosses a multiple of 16, the player is moving across chunks.

Essentially, the player is in the top-left corner (north-western) of a chunk when both x and z coordinates are divisible by 16.

Additionally, the player can know which chunk he is on by this formula: The X of chunk will be Floor( X coordinate / 16 ) The Z of chunk will be Floor( Z coordinate / 16 ) Where Floor is the largest previous integer. E.g. Floor( 27.9561 ) is 27 In other words if X was 27, Z was -15 the chunk will be chunk ( Floor( 27 / 16 ), Floor( -15 / 16 ) ) which means the player is on chunk (1, -1) Also, The player can know how far he is from the north-western corner by this formula:(X or Z coordinate) AND 15

In Pocket Edition, when toggling fancy graphics, the world will render again, loading only the chunk the player is in for a split second. This method is useful for finding chunk boundaries as there will be a clear line visible in that split second.

Tights Under Shorts

29

If Modesty Shorts involves a character wearing a skirt over shorts, then Tights Under Shorts involves a character wearing, well, tights under shorts. This is a great way to avoid too much fanservice with even the shorter shorts (including hot pants), though not as popular or traditional as Modesty Shorts, Skirt over Slacks, or Proper Tights with a Skirt. If flesh-colored tights are used, especially where censorship rules don’t allow bare legs (as was most notoriously the case with The Dukes of Hazzard), then it can be used as a method of Getting Crap Past the Radar. Under certain circumstances, the tights can serve to prevent visible leg injuries (like scraped skin or minor cuts) if their material is strong enough.

Don’t expect the shorts in question to be Modesty Shorts except on EXTREMELY rare occasions.

It’s Quiet… Too Quiet

26

The setting is ominous: a dungeon, perhaps, or a dark wood. Not one where the wary or cowardly tread, that’s for sure. The heroes, (no idiots, they!) ready themselves for an enemy attack that could come at any moment. After all, there MUST be danger nearby… right? It seems safe for now, though… or is it?

Someone has to break the silence, and only one line will do: “It’s quiet… too quiet.”

This trope describes any moment in a narrative where the action has hit a low point when anyone who’s paying attention would notice that a Random Encounter could, or should, appear at any instant. Fairly often something will happen within a minute, which will lead another character to say “You Just Had to Say It”.

When you start to suspect something is about to happen because the narrative is too positive, rather than too uneventful, that’s a Hope Spot.

The Stock Phrase itself is long since discredited and made fun of so often it can now be considered a Dead Horse Trope. Exception is made if it is lampshaded by adding in a sign on WHAT is quiet, e.g. “Why have all the forest noises stopped?” the answer usually being “the Monster of the Week killed/drove away all the wildlife”. Compare We’re Being Watched.

Often happens when the Jungle Drums stop.

Compare Nothing Is Scarier and Absence of Evidence. For the background music going silent, see Sudden Soundtrack Stop. For when a person going quiet is a bad sign, see Lost Voice Plot, Dumb Struck, and Silence of Sadness.

At least partially Truth in Television; in forests and crowded cities, there’s always stuff making noise — insects, birds, etc… unless they’re hiding from something.

Here is a compilationIt's Quiet… Too Quiet with a lot of examples.

Ryder Cup Outfits by RLX Ralph Lauren – Team USA 2016

30

We take a look at what Team USA will be wearing at Hazeltine after RLX Ralph Lauren unveiled their scripted Ryder Cup Outfits.

Ryder Cup Outfits – RLX Ralph Lauren

Ryder-Cup-Team-USA-Practice-Sessions

Fashion powerhouse Ralph Lauren will continue their relationship with team USA at the Ryder Cup, again providing the players and captains with a selection of scripted tournament apparel and ceremonial designer suits. Having first associated themselves with the US team under Tom Watson two years ago, the reception from both the players and the fans proved that the luxurious sports line, RLX by Ralph Lauren, was a fitting match for what the team required on the golf course. The team may not have emerged victorious that time, but they certainly went one-up on team Europe early in the style ranks.

As may be expected, the US colours of red white and blue dominate the colour palette and, as may be expected by existing fans of the RLX brand, strong stripes and colour blocking is featured throughout the practice and tournament day outfits. As far as performance is concerned, the technical fabrics which are used throughout the RLX Ralph Lauren line are certain to meet the demands and expectations of such a high profile event in the state of Minnesota. Each style is ergonomically designed with the modern, athletic golfer in mind; minimal swing restriction and supreme levels of comfort are almost guaranteed with every RLX golf garment.

Ryder Cup Outfits – Practice Days

Ryder-Cup-Outfits-Team-USA-Practice-2016

The practice days will see some classic designs from RLX with engineered stripe detailing, vibrant colours off-set with white and navy tones along with flattering fits provided by the “airflow” shirt styles. Expect to see these looks on the three practice days preceding the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Ryder Cup Outfits – Friday

Ryder-Cup-Outfits-Team-USA-Friday-2016

Team USA probably start with our most favourite look from the entire week. It’s a strong combination of red, navy and white with the subtle pinstripe pants offering a classical yet contemporary look with a tailored aesthetic. The sweater features team USA branding and a single contrast stripe at the right sleeve with three stars at the cuff, whilst the RLX outerwear option is the iconic Quilted CoolWool jacket which also made an appearance two years ago; the red panel detail brings this style to life and is one of the most comfortable and stylish garments in golf outerwear today.

Ryder Cup Outfits – Saturday

Ryder-Cup-Outfits-Team-USA-Saturday-2016

Bold stripes dominate the look for Saturday with a fresh pair of white RLX Range pants as the most obvious match for such a statement shirt. A Thermocool Button zip will be the mid-layer option and incorporates USA16 branding at the sleeve – matched with the dual stripe tab at the rear of the neck.

Ryder Cup Outfits – Sunday

Ryder-Cup-Outfits-Team-USA-Sunday-2016

A sharp looking navy and white combination will feature on Singles Sunday at Hazeltine with the option of a matching crew neck sweater – a similar style of which will be arriving in Spring 2017. Team USA branding features heavily once again, as it does on the reverse of the belt buckles and inner waistband of the team’s pants; it’s all about the attention to detail with RLX Ralph Lauren.

These outfits will be on sale in the USA in a very select number of locations, whilst a percentage of the sales will also go towards the PGA of America’s 41 Sections in a bid to grow and teach the game of golf. PGA REACH will also receive a portion, a scheme which is intent on improving the lives of veterans, youth and diverse populations through golf.

In our guide, we will help you learn how to jack a golf cart up the proper way.

How To Jack Up A Golf Cart (Step-by-Step Guide)

Step 1: Gather Supplies

To jack up a golf cart, there are a few supplies that you are going to need.

You want to make sure that you have everything in place before you start so that you don’t have to leave the golf cart unattended once you begin the process.

You will need . . .

  • Jack
  • Lift
  • Chocks
  • Supplies to complete work to the cart

Step 2: Engage Parking Brake

When you have gathered all of your supplies, the next few steps are going to be safety-related.

You will first have to put the cart in the park.

Make sure that you hear the parking brake fully engaged.

If the wheels are not locked before you start the process, you can risk injury to yourself and damage to your golf cart.

Step 3: Turn Golf Cart Power Off

There is no reason to have your golf cart powered up when you are jacking it up.

Turn the key to the off position and take the key out.

When you are finished, you can put the key back in place.

Step 4: Chock The Rear Wheels

If you are going to be working on the front part of your golf cart, you want to chock the rear wheels.

If you need to buy chocks, there are many options available in rubber and other materials.

You can also use a block of wood if you already have one around the shop.

If you skip this step, there is a high probability that the cart will start to roll when you start jacking it up.

If you are going to be working on the back end of your golf cart, you need to chock the front wheels.

Make sure you put chocks in front of both of the tires so that you are not putting too much pressure on the one tire.

Step 5: Locate Frame Rail Under The Golf Cart

Once you have the last few safety steps in place, you need to locate the frame rail under the golf cart.

You want to make sure you use this frame rail because using another area on the bottom of the cart could result in damage.

The frame rail is sturdy enough to handle the weight and the pressure that you are going to be applying.

Step 6: Slide Jack In and Slowly Jack Up The Cart

Next, you are going to slide your lift in under the cart, so you can start raising it.

The cart needs to be a few inches off the ground before you are going to be able to slide the jack in place.

When you first start lifting the golf cart, you want to do it very slowly.

Make sure that the cart is not moving at all, and it is staying firmly in place.

Slowly lift the cart high enough that you can put a jack stand in place under the cart.

Step 7: Put Jack Stand In Place

Now that the cart is lifted off the ground, you can put your jack stand in place.

When you put the jack stand in place, make sure to do it quickly and safely.

There is no reason for you to put your body underneath the golf cart.

Simply reach in, setup the jack stand, and then move back away.

Make sure the jack stand is set to the height that you want the golf cart to stay above the ground.

If you are doing something like changing a tire out on the cart, you only need to leave the cart lifted a few inches.

Jacking the cart higher than necessary is not going to do the golf cart any good.

If there were some type of accident, the damage would be much more significant.

Step 8: Slowly lower the lift

Now that your jack stand is in place, you can slowly lower the lift.

When you lower the lift, it will transfer the weight of the back (or front) end up the cart onto the jack.

If you do this quickly and something was not in place properly, you will end up dropping the entire cart.

It would be best if you lowered the cart onto the jack slowly.

Check to make sure that nothing has shifted or moved while you completed this process.

If everything seems stable and in place, you can remove the lift, and the golf cart will be resting on the jack.

When the golf cart is on a jack, make sure that you don’t add any extra weight to the cart.

In other words, make sure that nobody leans on or tries to sit in the golf cart while it is above the ground.

It is best to work with the tires and wheels when the cart is lifted and save the work under the golf cart for the professionals.

Step 9: Adjust and Move To Another Tire

If you were replacing a tire or all the tires on your cart, you would likely need to adjust the jack and move it to other areas.

Although you can raise the entire cart at one time, you would need four jack stands, and it just really does not make sense to do it this way.

You can work on one tire at a time and move the jack accordingly.

Always remember that each time you lift and lower the golf cart, you need to do it slowly.

Think about the weight transfer that will occur and the fact that you need to let that happen slowly to avoid damage.

When you are finished with all of the work on your cart, you will use your lift to help you remove the jack and lower the cart.

When your cart is sitting on the ground again, you can remove the chocks that you had in place and power your cart back up.

Why Does A Golf Cart Neet to Be Jacked Up At Times?

The most common reason to jack up a golf cart is to replace a tire on the cart.

Golf cart tires need to be replaced relatively often.

You cannot replace a golf cart tire unless you can jack up a golf cart.

Some local shops will replace golf cart tires for you, but the process is not all that hard.

If you have a jack and lift, you can do this project in your garage and save quite a bit of money.

Important Safety Steps When Jacking Up A Golf Cart?

golf cart safetyWe covered some of the most important safety steps when jacking up a golf cart in our initial step by step guide.

You need to take into consideration that a golf cart on a jack is not going to be nearly as stable as it is when it is on the ground.

Don’t let children or pets play around the cart when you have it jacked up.

Another essential thing to remember and consider is where you place the jack.

If you don’t put the jack on a sturdy part of the golf cart that can handle it, you could cause some significant damage to your cart.

Before you start this process, research the golf cart type that you have and see what the undercarriage looks like.

Make sure that you have a safe place you can put the jack that will be sturdy while you work on the cart.

If you are changing the tires on the cart, you may notice that the cart will rock or move a little while on the jack.

This is not ideal, but as long as you don’t see the cart slipping at all off the jack, then it should be safe.

Try to always keep the cart at the minimum height needed to complete the task at hand.

There is no reason to raise it more than necessary.

We certainly don’t recommend leaving a golf cart jacked up for long periods, but it is not bad for a cart to be jacked up.

Just as your car gest jacked up when you bring it to the mechanic, sometimes there is work that needs to be done to a cart that requires this to happen.

As long as you follow the correct procedures and complete every step with caution, you should have no trouble.

When you start lifting and lowering too fast or install the jack in the wrong place, this is where you will run into issues.

Difference Between Jacking Up A Golf Cart and Lifting A Golf Cart

If you have never seen a lifted golf cart, it is essentially a golf cart that is lifted off the ground, so it has better clearance when you are driving it.

Lifted golf carts are great for off-roading or for people that just like a higher ride.

Some people do a lot of riding on roads, and they like the lifted carts because they feel it makes them closer to the size of the cars around them.

Lifting a golf cart requires a lift kit and special tires for your golf cart.

Some people refer to this cart as being jacked up, but this is called lifted.

Jacking up a golf cart refers to raising it off the ground so that there is room to work on the golf cart.

Although these two terms get mixed up at times, the two processes are quite different.

Conclusion

Learning how to jack up a golf cart the right way could help save you a lot of money.

Golf carts are not all that difficult to work on, but of course, bringing them to a local golf cart repair shop is going to add up.

If you already own a jack and a lift for your car, you are that much closer to getting this job done with ease.

The most important thing to remember when working on your golf cart is safety.

Make sure that the parking brake is engaged, and you have the chocks in place before you start on any of the other steps.

This is a standard procedure, and if you go to a local golf cart shop, you will notice that all of the carts being worked on are secured like this.

It may take an extra minute or two, but it is certainly worth it in the long run if you avoid injury and damage to your golf cart.
