Tasks without or with PDA in Condor V2 - every Saturday evening. Server [C2] TRIPS is opening at 20:00 CE(S)T. Join time is 30 minutes and 1 minute race in time, start window 120 minutes long. No password for is required. The servers will be listed on the Condor serverlist and on alternative Hitzi's serverlist.
The contest will be flown in multiple classes. We will use IGC index handicap. All Batoh! tasks will be racing tasks.
We are flying these sceneries: CW-V [1.0], CW-A [1.1] and Slovenia2 [1.0].
The primary means of communication between contest organizers and contestants will be an e-mail. For scoring questions and submitting flight documentation contact contest organizers at tripsvirtualsoaring.eu.
Any person with a copy of the Condor Soaring Simulator V2 is welcome to participate in the contest. There is no official registration process. Anyone who wants to start participating in the contest can do so by joining the contest server at the time of race.
Cloud flying: the penalty given by Condor applies (60 points per minute). Mid-air collisions: pilots can repair their gliders in the air without any penalty.
Non-finishers will get points for the achieved distance if the pilot landed safely. In case of crash he will get zero points. When pilot is disconnected during race because of his internet connection, he MUST sent/upload an IGC file via our website or e-mail at tripsvirtualsoaring.eu to be scored. IGC file must be sent max. 6 hours after race starts.
Each Trips race will be scored/calcutated to 1000 points. The pilot who achieves the highest cumulative score in 1/2 of all the races (new from Q4/2018) will be the quarter champion. When total number of races in quarter is an odd number, the 1/2 of the races will be rounded up.
Tutorial in short: Race's clock must be started (you've heard the 3 bips) -> You have to be in the start sector (study the flight plan before entering the game!) -> Press J to see the start TP -> Look at 90° on your left, turn your glider to have both the TP basement and your left wing on the screen -> Press S key.
If all points above are correct, you'll see the confirmation message "xxx has started task". If you have only "Screenshot xxx saved", you have to retry. Bellow is a video made by Bades (BA) to illustrate a flight without PDA.
