Happy new year, everybody!

Time to look to the future and make some plans.
Unfortunately, not everything is in my control and I want to start this season's competition right. So that will mean some delay.
(no pressure CAS, it's not that important)

I run this competition because I like to race under these rules.
(they will be tweaked a bit, a bit more simplified)
I would like others to join because that is more fun.

Things I would like to add/change for the next season.
  • A scoreboard with points that automatically hides double entries.
  • A history and seasonal scoreboard.
  • An option similar to R4K that you can specify an RH or NoRH race.
  • An additional choice of CR (crash recovery or light RH) intention matters
  • A separate option to specify if you drive owoot, normal or BE (bug exploiting)
  • More diverse track packs.

Because this brings a lot of variables the point system needs adjusting.
The choice options is for a part to see what style is driven.
So a RH/BE (zakstunts style) is less impressive as the same time in NoRH/owoot (R4K style)
I favor CR/normal myself, as you can probably guess.

This season will start with Zakstunts scoring. I may add things similar to last year afterwards or just as statistics. I don't know.

What I do know is that I will start with a race with only PG capable cars.
Because I realized that I never drive them in competition, and I have the power to remedy that.

Stay tuned.
See you soon.

I'll see if I can get to some PHPing this year. I haven't touched R4K code a lot and yet I keep finding bugs from time to time, so for EasyTour, the code behind CCC, yep, it hasn't been the most stable thing. I will see if I can improve that this year.

After a talk with CAS about my wishlist. Getting everything done before the beginning is not reasonable. So i am going to prepare for the first race and update along the way.

I aim for 10 races this season. Starting on Monday February 6th.

Good call -- the technical improvements can be added gradually later on. Waiting for February 6th  ;)

Do you foresee having bonus points for restrictive modalities? That would be interesting to see. (By the way, I plan to NoRH with shortcuts most of the time, assuming that will remain an option.)

That would be NoRH/normal.
There are 9 different combinations to make.
But i am thinking about doing something with the difficulty's. But i am not sure how.

I mostly want to know what people like to drive first before I make a decision.
