Minor change to layout, that had to be done. Affects only split times in the future. I had to remove 3rd checkpoint, since it did not cover pitlane (pit visit resulted into missing lap). Thanks for user texxxas for reporting that bug.
So for now, sector 3 time will cover both old sectors 3 & 4
This was my first bigger event in LFS, and I have to say, I've never had more fun in LFS. I hope more people will participate next time, as this is really great opportunity for all drivers, slower and faster.
I am looking forward to next event and hopefully I will be able to participate!
Thanks! I found your Youtube channel and saw one of your LFS race video that looked awesome. I don't have an idea how to create such videos, would be nice to have a lesson (in pm for example), or in case you are interested to create similar stuff from the replay of yesterday, would be supernice
What a race it was!!! As reported I jumped off the line from 7th to 5th thanks to AWD power of RB4 and then spent all 23 laps in defense mode as the mobile chicane. Katila had really hard time trying to get around (damn 16 laps behind me ) If I hadn't open the door there, I'd probably manage to keep him behind for whole race (There wasn't much sense fighting FXOs so I didn't resist them too much and kept my eye on Katila instead). But once he got in front I had no chance of staying with him His tires were just great...
Oh BTW, that 90-degree left-hander with pit entry was just awesome turn! Great spot for some nice late braking manouvers and hanging the car around outside (Rony can tell )
I qualified with XRT, but since I had pretty much no experience with the car, I knew I had to switch to XFO for the race. I had better pace than cars around me, so I had a lot of fun fighting through the field.
If anyone "well known old fart" would like to act as moderator/admin during the race, please let me know! <3
edit: A note to statistics freaks: I had to move last checkpoint, because it originally was placed in a place where it did not cover pitlane at all. So old statistics have uncompatible last split/sector times
me neither, but I dont find better solution with Airio Free that is running on server. Airio wants to spectate all drivers taking jump start (its a design thing, if spectating would not happen, the first sector time could be unfair because of jump start).
So I cannot prevent Airio from spectating jump starters.
And since I have midrace joining disabled, those drivers could not join race anymore from pits (happened to Katila in one event). So the rule I introduced was 10sec penalty to jumpstarters. But looked like this time in restart jumpstarter was in the back of the grid, so he did not need anymore that 10sec penalty. I think its not bad penalty to starting from the back of the grid.
Maybe not a suggestion, but you could do something like this (assuming that you can edit files related to Airio on your server):
Actually, it should be possible. In Airio.srv.txt at section Driving Filters, you can choose whether you like to always specate for false start (you're using this at the moment in your server), send to pitlane for false start (this may or may not be good for the driver who takes a false start) or do the normal thing in LFS (this will give a penalty which severity depends on that how early driver took the false start. And if that specific driver drives even more before starting lights turn green, he/she will be specated)
You could allow midrace joining, but with this little trick done by Airio:
Again in Airio.srv.txt, but this time at the section called Joining Filters. Here you can configure that how many times drivers can rejoin the race and you can even do that after a set percentage amount of the race length has been driven (for example, 25% of the race length), rejoining will not be possible at all.
Here's what I have done in SRT's server:
I have configurated that if someone makes a false start, he/she will be returned to the pitlane. Midrace joining is possible, but each driver can rejoin only three times and if more than 20% of the race length has been driven, no one (with the exception of Admins and Limads) can rejoin anymore.
Even though that server is using an Airio Pros-version, changing those Driving/Joining-filters should be possible in Airio Free too.
