    REMINDER: NO CUSTOM PAINTED SKINS ALLOWED DUE TO JOIN LAG! PENALTIES MAY APPLY
    We recommend completely uninstalling custom painted skins from your ACC folders to avoid the excessive join lag issue.

    GENERAL NOTES
    • Redressing is a thing - It's important to redress when you have caused another car to lose position. More info here
    • Start Formation - The Kunos start system isn't perfect and still allows cars to be a fair way out of place by the time the lights go green so we will continue to review starts as a matter of procedure. We will issue warnings or penalties to drivers that we believe are gaining an unfair advantage or disadvantaging other drivers by being out of position.
      • Please respect other drivers and stay in your grid position
      • Do not stay 'ghosted' within any other car especially in the final phase of the formation lap
      • It is not acceptable to take another car's position before the start
      • If ACC fails to give a penalty for being out of position then the Admin team will issue a post race penalty
      • Driver's need to be side by side with their row partner and must maintain a reasonable gap to the cars ahead prior to the lights going green
      • Drivers should stop all weaving and brake warming as soon as the double file segment begins
      • penalties WILL NOT BE CLEARED even if it seems to be a glitch - just take more care!
    • Avoiding pre-start and Lap 1 Carnage! - Take extra care as the lights go green as all cars will be in a tight, accelerating pack:
      • Expect cars to be much closer to you and varying in speed due to all the others around so try to leave a tad more space.
      • Assume there are cars in your blind spots and and on the other side of visible cars until the pack spreads out more.
      • In braking zones you must brake SIGNIFICANTLY earlier than you would in general racing.
      • Avoid sudden direction changes unless you are sure you are well clear.
      • If on a straight section don't drift - stay straight.
      • Approach each situation with caution but execute your driving with intelligence.
      • If you need to redress in this tight pack situation keep going until you can move out of the traffic safely before slowing down
    • Optional use of indicators - Should drivers wish to use indicators to assist with managing lapped traffic, they are to be used as they are used on the road - i.e. you should indicate which way you are going - if you indicate left, you go left. REMEMBER TO TURN THEM OFF AGAIN.
    • All drivers should read the "Rooz Etiquette guide' and "Rules & Regs" linked below before the start of Round 1.

    • Please wait until ALL drivers have completed the final lap of a race before discussing your race.
    • Admins may speak at any time in any session for obvious reasons.
    • Feel free to hang around in chat after the race. Many of us like to have a laugh about things that may have happened in the race and it can be a nice wind-down :)

    WHY NO CUSTOM PAINTED SKINS?
    Unfortunately due to the serious "join freeze" or "join lag" issue we are currently not allowing the use of custom painted skins for this season. Specifically we are talking about skins painted externally and saved as PNG files that are added to ACC.

    We love the idea of custom painted skins and would dearly love to add this rich feature to our league but ultimately the quality of the racing must come first. We have discussed at length a number of ideas and methodologies to try to overcome the problem but these involve arrangements which add complexity for the admin team as well as all drivers involved in the season and still may not result in overcoming the problem. If the situation improves significantly either through better support within ACC or through the community arriving at workable solutions then we will certainly look at allowing custom painted skins into our Monday night league racing.

    If you also love custom painted skins then please help us out by searching high and low for real solutions, and by all means feel free to do some testing on our servers including during our Wednesday fun practice nights.

    At this stage we are not restricting the use of the in-game editor for creating custom colour schemes. This may change if we find that even that system causes serious join lag issues.

    NOTE: As we cannot block the use of skins at the server level we strongly suggest all drivers who sign up to the season remove all custom painted skins from their game installation folders as a precaution. If a custom painted skin has been accidentally left selected on a driver's car when they enter the server during a qualifying session causing join lag they will be immediately disqualified from the round. Any driver that has a copy of that joining driver's selected skin will experience a large join lag as that image is loaded into memory. Every other driver on the server may experience some level of 'join lag' even if they have zero customs skins in their game.

    Thanks for racing at RaceOnOz
    :)

    Fun race tonight. Clean and respectful, no damage and kept it fairly consistent throughout. Also decided to give VR a go tonight for the first time in a league race in this game. It was good fun despite the average image quality so might stick with it, but if any of you VR guru's think you can help me out please see this post in General Game Discussion: http://raceonoz.com/forums/index.ph...e-general-discussion.3351/page-16#post-230085

    Kind of mixed bag race for me here, I feel like top 10 was on if I didn't have my bump with King. Qualifying was average and I know I left at least .5 or more on table, qualifying is something I really need to work on for MNL races, I seem to have more pace on a Wednesday recently which is not really ideal! The pace in first stint was actually not too bad, I gained 2 places in the first 2 sectors on the opening lap before being stuck with no where to go after the pair in front of me touched at the hairpin, I had to avoid them to the outside of the track and this let a whole bunch of cars though but I came out with no damage at least.

    Once things settled down I had a great battle with Flukey for quite a few laps and nailed him into T4 after he was loose in the first few corners. I had a perfect pitstop as usual do in this league (touch-wood) and came out right on the back of King, after dealing with :):):):)-house cold tyres on my out lap and letting Nichols lap me who hadn't pitted yet and I got a great run on King down the straight, we touched in the fast right which unsettled me a little but there was no harm done, then however I was a meter or two too late in the hairpin and turned him around. :(:poop::mad::( I think we lost 2 places each here but I watched the replay and that's 100% on me for the contact, I waited to redress but was swearing on the inside, a silly mistake! I didn't really feel like I had the same pace in second stint after that but if I cleared King at that point I'm confident I would have had an easy top 10. Unfortunately for King he got done for track limits a few laps later but not much else happened from then until the end, just average pace with average driving.

    6.5/10 still fun

    YouTube must have gone through an upgrade, as I was able to upload the entire race replay in less than 5 minutes. Normally it would take about 1.5hrs to upload a 15 minute highlights video.

    The following time stamps will make it easier to navigate to any items of interest within the video.
    00:00:00 - Green light, race start
    00:00:28 - Turned around on lap 1, turn 4
    00:00:43 - Disqualified for driving the wrong way
    00:00:44 - Video end

    It was a fairly unremarkable race for me. Qually started poorly, with a couple of invalidated laps, and I ended up 26th. Finished 14th though, after avoiding any incidents. I had some good pressure applied to me by Carlos for quite a long time, but I pitted to get him out of my mirrors, which seemed to open up an eventual gap to him.

    I had a bit of a pit stop disaster that ruined my race. The first stint went well enough and I spent that last part of the stint creeping up on Wallzy's Ferrari looking for a part of the track to sneak by. But since there was nowhere where we had a big difference in pace, I decided to pit and try a bonsai outlap to get by.

    My pitstop was appalling. I hit the wrong button before the limiter line and sped to the pit box. I also overshot the pitbox and had to back up.

    Sure enough I received a 30 sec stop go and took it straight away. I came out of the pits a second time and found myself behind Wallzy's Ferrari again, but this time a lap down. After that I settled into a groove and got out of the way whenever I had blue flags. Though I did manage to get one more place in the last stint.

    Despite the poor finish, I think I focussed better than I had done previously and I managed to be fairly consistent. So overall i'm happy with how it went and I was pleased with how cleanly everyone was racing.

    your luck :cry:
    your video :roflmao:

    aaaaanyway... not my best race last night that's for sure.

    Sorry again to Mael for the punt. I misjudged the relative difference in braking between our cars at that early stage of the race. I should have left more margin. I wasn't even aiming to pass, just stay close enough to battle. I hope there was something left of your race to enjoy.

    After redressing I was at the tail of the field but the car felt good. I enjoyed the rest of the race trying to maintain consistency and learn more about the car. I had a couple more battles with Mael and then King which kept things interesting till the finish.

    There's always next week :)

    I found 59 minutes and 16 seconds that I didn't previously have, which gave me time to analyse the footage and add the time stamps.

    Thank goodness you've at least got this sense of humour for this situation.

    I had an ok race.
    I managed to avoid the first lap shenanigans and stayed with Dominiac for the first 10 laps. After this i think i must of pushed the tires to hard and i lost a heap of pace and i was having some massive slides in turn 1 leading up to my pitstop. I did have a great stop and closed the 6 second plus gap to Dominiac but couldn't really keep up. Last half of the race was pretty lonely with no one really around.

    I am really struggling for pace and consistency in the Ferrari so i am looking forward to next season already.

    Since poor @Glenn Stimson was out after 46 seconds i have done a highlights video for the night.
    NOTE: HD version is still processing when i posted this.

    No problem Krunch, like most backmarkers I'm amused by small things :D . Enjoyed chasing you after the pit stops until an overeager curb jumped out in front of me. Then had a fun few laps trying to catch @MusicRacer , he just stayed ahead on fresher tyres :thumbsup:
