    LiveRacers Timing & Scoring

    LiveRacers




    Race Comms

    1) Discord is required for the drivers meeting during warmup. Then you're welcome to leave the channel if you want.

    2) The drivers meeting will be verbal over Discord.

    3) CMS Discord comms is required, but only to monitor the drivers meeting and monitor race control during the event. You do not need a microphone if you do not want to speak.

    4) A request to drivers to please be brief in you communication on Discord. One sentence then quiet is requested.

    5) Abusive and/or profane in-game chat, Discord or forum post language or deliberate crash into competitor's car may lead to that driver receiving probation, suspension or ban from the league.





    Race Start

    1) Start is set for standing grid.

    2) Once the lights go green, SLOWLY roll off the grid and get in single file.

    3) All cars will remain in single file, no passing until AFTER the the start of the race.

    4) Once you have exited 19 and gone under the LPS Equipment board, your race has started.









    Race Restart Conditions

    There are two conditions that will prompt ONE race restart:

    1) The server has a technical problem and crashes.

    2) A driver disconnects when the server advances from Warm Up to the Race.

    In either situation, the server will be restarted and the process of loading the grid will begin again.





    Orange Zone

    1) The entire first lap is the Orange Zone.

    2) After you cross Start/Finish to begin your second lap, you are out of the Orange Zone.





    Settings

    Driving View is open
    Auto Clutch
    Traction Control





    Custom Skins

    1) Custom skin uploading is welcome and encouraged, but please log onto the server a couple days before the race so your dds file will get uploaded properly.

    2) If everyone waits until race day, it may clog the server and necessitate that we disable custom skin uploading.

    3) Please use only single car .dds files, not multi-packed .mas files.





    Penalties

    Penalties can be applied one of 3 ways:

    1) rFactor 2 system delegated penalties (all must be served, and are not in admin control).

    2) Upheld Incident Reports via Race Review Team.

    3) During the race for a Start infraction via Race Review Team.

    CMS League Rules and Regulations will be in effect for this event.





    Additional Driver Notes

    1) Don't Press Esc! UNDQ is available on the server. If a driver gets a DQ. DO NOT TOUCH ANY KEYS ESPECIALLY THE ESC KEY! An admin will see you are DQ and will UNDQ you. IMPORTANT! If it is still early light turn your headlights on before moving out of the garage or rF2 will DQ you again!

    2) Open setups, but we encourage everyone to share!

    3) It is STRONGLY advised drivers reboot their computer just prior to joining the server on race day. The track is a whopper, and can drag down the computer memory and resources so some extra precautions are necessary.

    Why can't I download the rfmod file from the server? I get the message "no such file or directory". I have all relevant cars and track installed. I have run the track offline, restarted Steam and rF2 several times without any success.... The only thing not done yet is to reboot the PC.

    Edit: Reboot did not solve the issue.

    Edit 2: Problem solved - My bad: Mod files are DLed to an external drive that was "sleeping" and hence not visible.

    Sort of feels like it got buried up a bit, but maybe will come to the forefront more now with active posting here.

    Anybody else having issues today? I was in either last night or the night before just fine but now I get kicked before 1/8 of the track loads and also seems like some cars are missing that were there to choose before.

    rF2 updates. Server side will need an update before it's all good to go again.
