Hello all,

Few questions to organizers. :)

What time servers will be starting? (imho SBC'10 had very good scheduling and worth to use their experience maybe...)
Will not be problem with SA servers and lags, warping etc if so many ppl will fly the same time? (Hope not!)
When registration page/competitors list will start? (Maybe you could use c-c system for reg./scoring, it is already known and working good)
Can we change plane type/model during comp? Or we need to fly all comp. the same?

Last but not least: What is your main goal in realism?
To reproduce very similar weather (to RL) in Condor or rather to reproduce average task speed of the day with more or less similar weather?
How you want to avoid too fast results in Condor compared to those RL?

GLA and see you on the race!

P.
No matter where you go... There you are...

..well, I moved my post to right place...

..just a questions to rules
- there is not Q allowed, but servers are hosting by TeamSA. I have afraids about ping from Europe to SA and lagging/warping planes. So how can I avoid midair collision in this case?
- there will be more classes, when start registration to classes and how it will managed in fact?
- can I fly more classes?
- how about server scheduling? Or dont you plane online race?
- can you publish any more detail info about organization?
- how is solved double flying/registration problem if there will not be only online race?

Main interest for me is server time/times. If its done in the same manner as SBC then its impossible for me to fly as I'm working nights for the 2 weeks the WGC is on if servers are available at different times then it would be easier.

I have some questions about the races.

What is the maximum of pilots on the server? ( is it the normal maximum 32 or can more than 32 people fly in the races ?)

What time does the races start every day ?

greets

Thibeau

I got email and I am not sure how do you want detect if disconnect was tech issue or
intention?
Only first attempt will be counted. Only excuse have pilots which has been disconnected during flight. In that case, they have two options how to score their points. Options are: Connect to another server and finish the task there or continue off-line and then send FTR file via website.


We usually dont allow continue in flight on next server and pilot has to finish task offline. There can be exception if there is Condor crash or PC crash, but is very problematic how verify such tech issue.
For this case we dont count all races, because PC/game crash is unpredictable, so ppl which have such problems sometimes are not cut out from possiblility win all competition.

Btw there is no word about how much races will be counted?

Edit: still there is no reply about Q option for midair collision? How can avoid midair collision with Brasilian pilot which have ping over 300 ms? Typically Serginho need much more and for joining to server needs full range1000 ms..?

Thx for reply in advance,

Hi Marek

Btw there is no word about how much races will be counted?
Are jokeing with this question? Have you read Annex A. Every single results from valid day is counted.


still there is no reply about Q option for midair collision?

No possibility to recovery after collision. Excuse for lags and high ping isn't enough. Ask firstly yourself why you fly such close to another glider that you allow mid air collision. Just look out of cocpit. In real life you havent got such things like Q.

Disconnection issues is exactly for reason of PC crash. It is just about honesty of pilots. If someone wants to cheat he will always find the way how to.

EPIC FAIL!

Sorry but I have to say this is a very wrong idea.
In real/ideal world there is no PING or LAGG.

Please think again this rule. There are many good competitions with GOOD rules for midaid collision.
You can make rules for safer flying. For example :
- Penalize dangerous flying
- After two crash, midair collision, disqualifie the pilot
.....

Sorry for the message but this rule is bad.
