have you ever read VFR rules? You should exit termal 300meters under cloudbase. You are violating this rule and entering this part on your owen risk. Do you want arcade flying or as close to real as possible?
you asked lot of question. I will try to answer it one by one. If I missed some I am sorry it was not on purpose.
What time servers will be starting?
3 timezones are enough I think and also the server which starts at "11AM" will be running again and again till next day briefing. So you will have 24 opportunity to fly the task. If there will be huge amount of pilots from e.g. Pacific timezone I will make server just for them. Its no problem from my site.
Can we change plane type/model during comp?
Changing type of glider in world class
feel free to do so
Changing type of glider in standard class is alowed but I dont think that any one will do so there isnt big difference between them.
What is your main goal in realism?
Mine main goal is to show to condor comunity how real competition looks like and how difficult is for pilots to compate very single day. Weather is very difficult. Our meteorogilst is sitting next to me and we are discussing every single aspect of it.
He is creator of famous weather service for glider pilots. http://flymet.meteopress.cz/eindex.php
How you want to avoid too fast results in Condor compared to those RL?
There is no possible way how to make it. I cannot simulate coming cold or warm front and wet or dry diabatas. As you saied condor model is too simple for realistic weather.
Thanks for you advices I will rethink whole competition. It isnt bad idea indead.
1000p for task because calculating task coeficient and maximum points for task is difficult. There is rule about more then 2.5hour task and more then 300km. I simplified it that for very single task points will be 1000. But that doesnt mean that every winner receive 1000 points for winning. I tested this scoreing system and it works perfectly. On small task average points for winner were around 300. So that opportunity of getting back to top 5 by winning long and hard task is not taken from you
PS: I am also working on tracking of real pilots through condor so I have very soon data about weather.
I will post link here for watching our HD stream on the net.
