    Season 15 by IGNITION CONTROLLERS
    [​IMG]

    If you have been following the other threads you will know we are kicking this season off on Monday night. The Raceonoz servers are up for practice and teams have been sorted. This season will run as per last season in most respects, but we will be going back to running multiple compounds seeing as we have a V8 Supercar to play with.

    I have round 1 sorted, but more details will follow. Seasoned racers will know the drill, but for those new to our fine forum, please read the Code of Conduct and Racers Guide, both good reads and worth a second look if it's been a while.

    The plan will be to have the rooms open from 8.30pm AEST and to start qualifying at 9pm. There will be 10-15 minutes of qualifying depending on the length of the track, and then into the race, usually around 45 minutes. We will be running 1 room again this season so tracks are again being considered that can cater for 30 drivers. Thanks to the gurus that are Marty and Rolz and their mastery of the servers, there will be enough slots and rooms available for practice during the week. There will still be an individual and team championship as per previous seasons.

    ATTENTION!!

    Points & Ballast
    The points system will be managed by our masters of charts, and will be posted within the ladder section at the top of the website, and updated weekly. The points will be distributed as per position table included with championship ladder.

    This season will also see us using a bonus point system with Fastest Lap (FL) and Most Consistent (MC) for each room gaining an extra point. ie Win+MC+FL=Win +2 points for the round. MC will be as per simresults, with highest gross MC across both sprint races used for determining overall MC.

    There is a provision for a drop round this season. Every driver will have their worst performance dropped from their overall championship total. In the case that the first round of the season is DNS and likely the drop, then any ballast earned in round 2 by finishing in the top 5 will be multiplied by 1.5 (same as having two of that position in a row).

    The sprint round this season will see a full qual and practise session for the first race, and a 10min qual only for race 2. The points will be distributed to each driver for both races to come up with placings for the entire round. REVERSE GRID RACE 2 - HALF POINTS! Where 2 drivers finish on the same points, the driver who finishes in a higher place over the 2 races will be given the higher placing. Where this is the same, the driver with the fastest lap over the 2 races will finish in the higher position for the round. FL and MC bonus points will be given to the driver(s) with the best result over the 2 races.

    Success Ballast System is not in effect this season.

    This season we will be using DISCORD so get the app and keep an eye out for the instant invites if you haven't been in the Raceonoz server yet. The permalink is still working: https://discord.gg/JB257mk

    Skins (Liveries):
    If you wish to run your own skin, great. We would love to see the teams running their own skins again this season.

    At this stage, and as far as I am aware, there are no differences between the cars so any driver can use any car but I will leave that up to the teams. If the team has one car skinned and everyone wants to use that then go for it. If they have skins for all cars and want to drive whatever, go nuts. BUT, post up here what is happening so that we know what car each driver is running and a link to whatever skins are done so we can put them on the server by 10pm on the Sunday night prior to round 1.

    Skin pack V2 (round 2)

    Skin Pack V2 update (round 3) Will need Skin pack V2 installed first to use this pack.

    I will go the Nissan for the season, Im not a big fan of Holden or Ford even if my favourite v8 drivers are in Holdens. ;) I dont expect too many to go the Nissan and would rather see a few different cars on the grid. From times on the server it seems all 3 are pretty close so it shouldnt make much difference which one you choose.

    @DarrenO has already shown a couple of nice skins for our team for the Nissan and Ford and I think will make one for the Holden. So TGM should be all set for skins :D

    Might be easier if the captains of their respective teams send me a list of requested names/cars... if individuals do it I'm sure to miss one...

    As we don't have many confirmed tracks for the season as of yet, I have put a few up on my servers. If you search raceonoz or Marty you should find these easily. Final round will be Bathurst all others I think are TBD currently so some testing by a few and suggestions and links will be helpful.

    Id say requirement wise we want 30 grid spots minimum, solid tracks with no issues like holes in the mesh, timing issues or surfaces that will DQ you if you touch them. Aussie tracks are welcome as are other mod tracks if we don't have enough Aussie ones of good standard with enough grid spots to fill the season.

    Currently I have a few tracks suggested by @jlynn777 and Nords Endurance cup. I did have New Jersey up but it only has 24 grid spots which is not enough. All official tracks do have extra grid mods available and possibly some other better mod tracks may have this.

    Tried the Argave circuit, it seemed to have an odd issue where exiting pits and crossing the basic painted white pit exit line would give car damage. Most times it was just minor front and or rear aero damage. 1 time I got red front aero from this and another time when trying to do this It destroyed the engine, left front suspension and front aero which all went red lol. Strange as we ran a round in the r34 GTR's here and nobody had issues but possibly the low cold pressures and aero causes this. I have never had a car destroy itself or get damage before on what is just track tarmac with a painted white line, maybe there is a hole in the mesh there or something but I would not recommend this track to be used as its likely to ruin at least 1 persons race.

    We ran Sydney Motorsport Park (Which I know as Eastern Creek) in the GTR season, that was a decent track

    Had a quick google and the old links from 2014 have only 24 grid spots, if you can find one with 30+ I will put it up on a server. The track was fairly well done I think originally based off the old laser scanned RF1 track but it had lots of work to it with all the track renovations added to it plus the other layouts.

    Some basic track testing, Estoril claims to have 30 grid spots in ACserver manager but if more then 24 cars are loaded the game crashes so this looks not good unless someone can figure out why. I have got the server up still with 24 cars but replaced the Algarve one with Okayama which loads ok with 36 cars and we have raced here before. Its a very good scratch made track that was fun to race in a past season.

    https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/okayama-international-circuit.15846/

    Tor Poznan Loads in game with 40 cars, I have ran older versions of the track and I don't remember any issues with it. Its also a top quality laser scanned scratch made mod for AC. Will leave this one up for people to test and will only take tracks off the test servers if I or someone else finds some critical issues making them unsuitable.

    None of these tests are certain to be raced this season but it can give options to those in charge for this and coming seasons to give a few more options.
