    @ Mellie: Yep.. You came last in that test event. I took it down before it's finishing date/time... but mainly for you, before anyone could see it.
    We'll let the next event expire on it's finish date/time and it should then start adding points to the drivers names, etc.... ALL still testing ATM so we'll soon see.


    NEW EVENT NOW UP
    (see previous post)


    Reason for false start seemed to be that it won't allow multiple events running at the same time. (live'n learn)

    PS: I might've forgotten to tick a box to allow "Maintenance Area" for each stage and the event has already started... So I cannot amend it.
    If it's to difficult to finish, let me know and I'll look into aborting it.

    Is it worth creating a 2nd league. We could have a hard core simulated league and a arcade best time type league.

    Sorry, Davos... It doesn't have an arcade mode. (it's blasphemy to mention it)

    I think you can ajdust all your ABS, Traction Control, etc. assists yourself, with possibly a trade-off for speed... Test it out and let us know.


    PS: We'll talk more about a 2nd Sprint Only League that would have an open (or extended) date/time finish with user restartable events/stages as testing and updates progress. (See, I knew what u meant )

    Ive set up the arf speed league https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/leagues/manage-league/14760 daily single stage events (5 in a season). You can retry as many times as you like each day.

    Wow that was quick.. The ARF Speed League, eh?.. Nice play with letters.
    Like I said we'll look into running restartable sprint time trials for AEF as things progress. Could be a good idea for running in between championships aswell.

    BTW.. your link is not working. =/



    PS:
    The NEW EVENT test has been reset to allow repairs, due to Mellie's driving causing his co-drivers death.
    Previous post info updated.

    As stated to old Skidney on Steam, I won't take part in stages with snow. I just hate the shit, I truly hate it.

    Thanks Matt.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Rally_Championship



    PS: Perhaps we could incorporate some make shift "Special Stages" to help quench the thirst of any "Hot Laps" guy's?
    This SS could consist of just one event/stage, that could be re-run for a specified period of time until satisfied with your finishing time/position or the SS event time expires.

    SS points would also be included into the championship standings.
    (At this stage of testing it's not sure if points can be adjusted/reduced and awarded to only the top 3 for a SS)

    Hopefully it won't be long for CM to release the proper dedicated Special Stage tracks...... Thoughts?

    Did you guy's notice in the snow stage (during actual snowfall at night), how the speckled snowfall movement on the screen, plays havoc with your eyes?
    Not that I've ever driven at speed in those conditions in RL... but surely it can't be good for you. (drove me nutz o_O)

    Yep I did.

    I believe the points relate to the season and will reset for a new season. Because we have only had one event for each season it will wipe the points each time. With your new multi-event season we should have the points tally up between each event. At least thats how I understand it. So its my bad, I should have edited the current season rather than starting a new one (but I dont think that was possible at the time as the season had finished).

    Its a pity we don't seem to be able to see the results/times etc from the last season(s).

    May be an idea to set up a big dirty season which spans a month or so and has 8 -10 stages per event. I think the reddid league does this and it works really well. I played a 12 stage event last night an it was epic. I came 9th out of about 600. The game is heaps more strategic with mutiple stages. If you go slow and steady you get shafted in the first couple of stages but a it goes on you move up the leader board really quick as your car works and hasnt turned into a twisted lump of shit. Loving it.

    Agreed Davos, that's what we're aiming towards, lengthy "AEF Seasonal Championships", via testing and feedback.
    ATM we're seeing if restartable SS's are worthy for inclusion in some way.

    Can the event timings overlap at all?

    I think I'll struggle with the current time for each event, but understand we dont want them dragging on.

    That'd be a negative Kai. We tried overlapping them before, but with no success.

    Once a good format is found, and agreed upon, an extended AEF Season Championship length, plus day and time for each of it's events... would have to be decided to suit majority involved.

    After this current test season/events has finished, we'll discuss further.

    I recon we should do a weekly 8 section event. I did a 12 section event yestetday and it took an hour. 8 section (40mins) is long buy not too long (you can also save as you go). You can sign up to 6 leagues plus the career daily and weekly events. If one a week isnt enough theres plenty more out there.

    Davos, are you saying (for example) that in 1 event, if you finish stage 4 from 8 stages, you can save and continue later from where you left off, before the event closes?

    Championship/Season (Points Ladder)
    1 season = X events
    1 event = Y stages
    Each event has a start/finish date and time. (cannot overlap)

    Cool.. So if 1 event has 10+ stages in it and becomes a bit exhausting or whatever, you can come back to it the next night (if it's time period permits) and continue from where you left off.
