    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.

    MORE INFO

    DISCORD & VOICE

    All important information for racing is available on our forums, however we strongly advise drivers to join our Discord server for for voice and text chat. Sometimes critical information such as server issues, race delays, last minute race format changes, instructions to a specific driver, etc. will be relayed only through the Discord voice channel and text chat. There is also a healthy dose of banter that just makes the round more fun :). Once you sign up for any Season at Rooz you'll be given extra Discord permissions for text chat.

    >> ROOZ Discord Server <<

    Discord voice chat rules and etiquette:
    • if you intend to chat you MUST use push-to-talk. No-none wants to hear your gear clicks, heavy breathing or barking dog in the background.
    • non-excessive chat and banter is OK in Practice sessions.
    • There should be minimal chat in Qualifying sessions - essential questions, statements, apologies etc. only.
    • There should be minimal chat in Race sessions - essential questions, statements, apologies etc. only.
    • If you become frustrated or angry at yourself or another driver please do not push your talk button. Keep it private!
    • Please do not conduct arguments over voice chat. Sort it out later!
    • Abuse will not be tolerated. There's no place for that stuff at Rooz!
    • 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
    :)

    I think this race and Zolder are the only ones I haven’t done an official Rooz race with yet. When I did it in the Honda on a Wednesday last year it was pretty nice, let’s find out if Godzilla is the same.

    Thank all, you're all too fast for me. Wasn't really racing against anyone on track for this one, just against myself really with the goal of making it to the end without any major incidents or damage, which I achieved with the exception of one time into the hairpin where I overshot my braking marker and went too deep, but no harm done other than a few seconds time lost. I just don't know how to find pace on this game, still good fun though.

    A lot of fun tonight... a few passes, lots (and lots) of defending, a few knocks, but great fun. The Lexus was a bit painful at the slow hairpin and the final chicane, because the A pillar and roll cage really restricts your view out the left, so it was hard to line those corners up nicely.

    There's a sausage kerb down there somewhere!

    Great fun! I enjoyed the second half chasing @Flukey. He was impervious to pressure. Error free. Very irritating! Well done...

    Barcelona looks nice at dusk. Good skills from the admins on the timing of this race. And thanks also for organising - your efforts much appreciated.

    About my race then.

    Krunch: This is shaping up to be an epic race!
    Internet: Hold my ping...



    Still, I had a fun race battling back. I had 8sec of damage which seemed to cost me around a second a lap during the first stint. Had some good battles but still felt I was moving forward. 2nd stint was great fun as the car was repaired and I pushed! Caught Wally with about 6 laps to go and torched his bumper but he defended well and I had to settle for 13th.

    I'm starting to think you're doing it on purpose as some sort of contrition for past acts! :D

    After having a pretty good race at Misano I suppose it was time to return to normal programming.
    That was such a strange incident. I didn't experience any warping or rubber banding from my point of view, I was trying to be so careful around the out side when I clouted you. I remember thinking at the time "how the hell have I just smashed into Krunch".
    My car was cooked after that with 26 seconds of damage. Should have pitted straight away or at least as soon as I could make it to the end on fuel. Pitted just after half distance and went about trying to make up some ground, which I did until my customary DT. Caught up to the back of Marsh & Flukes epic battle in my pursuit of Mael and was now, ironically behind held up as I saw Mael just out of reach. I just had to sit there and wait for them to catch him but I ran out of laps to make a move.
    Such a frustrating night......
