How Do I Connect to the Server?
Launch the game with AMS.exe. Make sure you have selected "All Cars and All Tracks" at the bottom of the main menu. Hit the Multiplayer button, and then the + at the top right. Enter 22.214.171.124:55143 and hit OK. Click the server and join with the button on the bottom right. The IP will be saved so you can join the server this way from that point on.
Race will be restarted if needed.
Since this is a multiclass series, there are two classes of car you can pick. The faster class is the Metalmoro AJR, and the slower and easier class is the HUEC Stock Car. The Marcas and MINI Challenge are reserved for the AI that will show for races at longer tracks. If you pick these two classes, you will be kicked before the race.
If you pick the Metalmoro AJR, you're expected to be fairly competent at driving. This means actually understanding your car has a ton of downforce, not driving all over the track and constantly spinning off, not getting lapped in a 30 minute race, and not crashing into other cars.
If the admin sees/hears too many complaints about your driving, or if you do not make the 105% cutoff, you'll be made an offer you can't refuse to go into the slower class.
If you're slow, don't understand downforce, or just want to drive the easier class, drive the Stock Car.
Two races, 30 minutes each. Random start time in daylight.
Accelerated fuel usage is on. You will need to pit for fuel, even starting with a full tank. Make sure you practice pitting, and bind a button to request pit for faster pit stops. You will only need to pit for fuel, so make sure you uncheck tires being changed.
Don't drive like an idiot, and pay attention to the flags.
Don't flip Marko Tulska. Unless it's Flip Marko Tulska Day or if flipping him would be really funny.
Feel free to run wide on corner exit, just expect to be called a faggot and insulted in public especially if you wreck someone because of it.
The 105% Limit
Results will be based off of the Live Timing, not the FOSS Live Timing
Within the entire week of practice, along with the qualifying session right before the race, any driver who fails to set a lap within 105 percent of the fastest time will not be allowed to race in the Metalmoro AJR. This is to get you to actually practice so you're not driving all over the road being a hazard for the slower class cars because you're constantly spinning out and just being slow in general.
For example, if the fastest lap time was 60 seconds, each driver must complete a lap within 63 seconds to guarantee a start.
As usual, you can make your own livery if you like. Skin Templates and the email to which you send it to are in a link on the Google Document.
In your .veh file: ("QUOTATION" MARKS ARE NEEDED FOR ANY LINE YOU ENTER)
Set your Default Livery= line to [the name of your .dds].dds
Set your Team= line to Team="[yourname or yourteamname reccomended for neater sorting]"
Set your Driver= line to Driver="[your name is recommended for neater sorting]"
Set your FullTeamName= line to FullTeamName="[whatever you put in the Team= line]"
Set your Category= line to Category="OVGHUEC"
Please .zip your files before emailing them.
Skin submission deadline is 24 hours before the start of the race.
