Changes For S20
Posted 27 November 2016 - 09:11 PM
a) we need to know your intentions of returning
if you intend to return, WHO is stepping up to be a Team Leader
c) the schedule is dependent on the TSG.. when we know what tracks, i'll post the schedule
NOTE: original tracks will run 60fps and any ANY add-on will run 36fps ... please make a note of it!
THERE COULD BE MORE TO FOLLOW but for now....
what was group 3 and 3+ will now be group 3 and group 4
in D1 it will be G5,6,7,8 (was g6+)
(A) Drivers in D2/g3 or g4 may race in D1 for a missing teammate, or if the team is in last place
( Drivers in D1 will not be allowed to race down
1) Coins for winning a race will be +5, 2d place +3, and 3d place +2
2) Hiring of a privateer for 1 race will cost equal his "G" classification
2a)Hiring a privateer for remainder of season once season begins = 2 coins/per races remaining
2b)Privateers may not give coins to a team, but may 'buy' into a team if there is an opening to race for the team. Coins used this way are not refundable!
2c)Privateer cars are property of privateer and may not be used by a team driver unless the team pays the full price of car to privateer.
2d)COINS GAINED for finishing increased to 5 for win/ 3 for 2d/ 2 for 3d
3) Renting a car (HONDA only) will cost 4 coins
4) Costs of Cars ... INCREASED!
5) Bonuses for Finishing must also include having completed 75% of race distance
6) Damages to engines will now auto deduct 3 coins and blown engines deduct 8
7) For TEAM LEADERS: draft CREDITS to select drivers now 18 total (13 for D1 5 for D2)
8a) if hired to sub for 1 race, the cost is equal to that drivers 'g' classification
and may do so, only for a team driver. Coins go to privateer.
8b) if hired for remainder of season (at any point) no 'cost' to the TL(or team) but must stick to the
13/5 credit limit rule (d1+d2) or pay the fine for going over the max (18 credits)
that is 2 coins for each 'g' over. ex: being at 12 credits and hiring a g6 = 1 over or 2 coins

Examples (just suggestions for rules to use, not all have to be applied):
- D1 drivers may only drive Cooper, Honda or BRM for competition's sake.
- Only for replacing D2 teammate when not available.
- As privateer it is okay only after teams signed their respective drivers for the race.
- Team may only do it when it's at the bottom of the table.
- One driver (team & privateer) may only do it a maximum of time (max. 5 times or so).
- Based on a quote of Harry Schell

the whole concept of balance i try to achieve in oAo, is undone when d1 is allowed to race in d2.
this year, again, we will NOT allow it.

Also, is there a cost to hiring a privateer for the remainder of the season. The above seem ambiguous,
Posted 02 December 2016 - 10:17 PM
when we draft our teams, all drivers are at a credit level, equal to their 'g' rating. me for example then would be '3'credits (in D2 and i have 2 credits remaining for a 2d D2 driver)
more will be understood when i send out the excel sheet for those interested in playing along
there is no 'cost' to hire for the remainder of full season - but any coins that privateer might have, can not be transferred to the team.
if a pvtr is hired for only 1 race, he does cost, an amount equal to his 'g' rating.
check out the link to "pre-season" for full explanation
- and if still not clear, let me know!

second there are no g4s (at least not to start season) so g3+g2= 5 and total max allowed is 18
in the example then, 13+5 and that 'team' is good.
the g8 and g4 levels are reserved for those top drivers that we later find out need to be 'promoted'... but in D2, the only 'up' would be to D1 and the team he is on, would only be part of the problem (the team might already have 2 D1 drivers) but also, what to do with his points? they can't carry over to D1... so now, can promote him to D2/g4

So I'll just shut up except to mention that when we do a centenary season in 2067, maybe we could run Nurburgring on a foggy night, Spa in the snow, and Watkins Glen with anacondas and crocodiles in the ditches. In the meantime I think the TSG did an admirable load of work with these picks. It should be a fun season, even if I have to miss Monaco because I think I'm scheduled for a liver transplant that weekend.

You crack me up Pepe! 2067 hahaha, you frigging dinosaur! Great to hear you will receive a new liver. Hopefully it will work out and hold until 2067 then
Great job by the TSG, thanks guys and Claudio in particular!

Monacane down to 40
MosportRain down to 32
and BA55 up to 42
Pepe.... i don't think anaconda's are in NY/wGlen but maybe by 2067 there will be

Re our S20 sked... Looking forward to it and quite appropriate that we are running the 1967 season venues. As most of you are aware, I re-write the grid layouts for the league...so don't blame Bo...giving generous spacing...typically, 10m...for online purposes. Does the membership wish to see this maintained for S20 or would a preference be voiced to see that the true, 1967 grids be employed? RSVP.
Very cool that Mosprain is on the sked. I attended the very race as depicted in GPL and it was quite a treat to see the race start in a downpour, dry out then end in more rain. From better than half a century of observations at Mosport, a rule of thumb for performance in the rain could be developed. It would be...
Take you best lap time and add 30 seconds. If you could meet that target, you were doing well.

I, too, wholeheartedly approve of the scheduling of monacane and mosprain (as well as spa67, even though I won't be able to drive it on my current rig. Yeah, I still haven't upgraded). They're historically accurate and add a nice little twist to the old GPL.
p.s. Thanks for the link to ba55n2, Pepe. I missed that track's release.

I went to https://www.f1legend...ts/rmosport.php to download the soggy Mosport track. I unzipped an installable Mosport_Park_Rain.exe file that produced a track folder called Mosprain. There it lists the record as being held by J. Clark with a time of 1:22.096.
GPL Rank lists two non-dry versions of the track: Mosport Park Wet and Mosport Park Rain. The world records in a Cooper are 1:47.879 and 1:24.016 respectively. My best times at Mosprain with very little practice are within five seconds or so of my best times at the dry track. So where did I go wrong to get so fast all of a sudden?
P.S. Doni: My liver is fine; it's the upcoming brain transplant that really has me worried.

That's a prerequisite for becoming one me thinks
