Recommended Posts

Ahoy World is proud to announce we will be hosting a large-scale, multi-group oriented race across Altis! Those willing to participate will be asked to form 3-man teams consisting of a Driver, Medic/navigator, and Mechanic. Ahoy it's self will have a few cars reserved for our members to fill out, however, one of the most exciting parts of this race is that we will be inviting other groups from around the Arma-sphere to form their own team and join us!

 

The race course will cover almost everything Scenic Altis has to offer, from Pavement to saltflat, Mountain climbs to ocean views, all from the comfort of your Hatchback Sport. Race teams will be encouraged to create their own custom Texture for their cars livery. There is NO entry fee, however, we ask you consider making a contribution to the winners pot, such as a Steam game, or iTunes or the like, however big or small, so that the we have something to give the winning team. Further, we ask that you take this race seriously, as you are representing your group, and take note that any mucking about will be dealt with not just in-game, but potentially out of game as well (at least for Ahoy members).

 

Tentatively, we are looking at March 15th, at 16:00 G.M.T. for race day. The course and certain specifics about race formats are still being decided, but feel free to ask if you have any questions. So, if your ready, get set, and make your race teams.

Will there be room for Spectators, if I wasn't on a team I would still love to spectate. There could possible be a pilot following the lead car streaming the race. Just idea's don't want to make it to complicated though. Either way this sounds awesome.

There will be a pilot following the race, spectators in the server not sure but we will have it being streamed!

Sweet, still unsure as to if I'll be around on the 15th of March but I would most certainly be able to watch a live stream.

As far as spectating goes, it would be nice if we had a pilot/ observer however it would be better if we could pop this in the description

 

enableDebugConsole = 1;

 

As far as racing goes, I'm down for whatever, driving, navigating, fixing shit.

 

Edit: So it turns out im putting in to make a team,  :ph34r:

Hello, Everyone, and thanks for the wonderful response and interest to this event!

 

First of all, I'd like to request ALL participants, especially Ahoy World members (so that we don't have 20 different people in here squatter-rights style), Please Post your Full team Roster. This is your official Entry submission to the race. Again, No Entries will be considered official unless accompanied by a team roster!

 

Next, depending on field density, we may have Up to 2 Broadcast helicopters, who will be streaming the Official Race Feed.

 

Race Teams: For various reasons, including ensuring race integrity, we are asking that you make sure at least one person per team will be streaming or at least recording your run.

 

Custom Textures need to be finished one week before race day.

 

There will be a qualification run that will be handled in the week before the race. Ahoy will host a small Timed Rally Course that your team (or at least your team's driver), can attend, and you will have 3 chances to run the qualification course. Best Time is your Poll Position. You can attend the qualification test starting one week before the race, and ending 2 days before the race, anytime as long as someone is available to administer the test. There is no obligation to attend qualification; those unable to attend qualifications will just be put at the back of the field.

 

How we plan to handle Damage and Collisions:

In terms of minor wheel and vehicle damage, you have a Mechanic on-board who can hop out and get you going again.

If you crash hard enough to make you see stars, you've got a medic to put your team back together, and your mechanic can get you back on the road.

If your Crash is so extreme that your vehicle is almost completely wrecked and your whole team is killed, We have a fast action medic available to move in and revive your team's medic, so that you may once again get your team under way.

IF your crash is SO catastrophic that your vehicle explodes, or takes a dip in the Mediterranean, and is unrecoverable, our Fast action medic will move in, revive your team, and wait for a brief period (to administer a time penalty) before spawning in a replacement stock hatchback sport.

 

in the event that there is an accidental Multi-car crash that involves the loss of multiple vehicles, all involved teams will be forced to wait until our Fast Action Medic revives everyone, and until all replacement cars have been spawned in, before they are allowed to rejoin the race. 

 


 


@Soldat Ryan: Unfortunately, at this time, it does not look like we (or ArmA) would have the resources or ability to support multiple teams from other groups. we have to keep server population down, and of course, if we gave one group another team, we'd have to give ALL groups another team = lagfest.

 

 

 

We hope you understand.

This is Golden representing Seal Team Sloth Sever,

 

we are currently in the process of our recruitment phase and will have two teams, one main and one backup in case of disconnect ect..

 

STS is primarily a role play server so we have a news crew ( channel 7 news) who make youtube videos/stream ect so would it be possible to get them inside of one of the two helicopters flying or get them good position at start/finish?

Great to hear, David! Good luck to you, and to Hoax's team!

 

Golden: to address a couple points, officially, I believe we can accommodate 2 of your news crew streamers; we can place one in each of our choppers as the camera man

 

As to your Standby Team, It's is a good Idea to have folks at the ready, just as long as you understand that no replacement players or teams will be allowed in server, unless you can confirm loss of original Team Members to Disconnect or Real Life. 

 

Protocol for replacing Disconnected players lost DURING the Race: In the unfortunate event that a player loses connection Mid-race, he or she may reconnect, and our fast response team will aid in relocating the player at the next available Checkpoint AHEAD of his teammates. The team will then be required to stop and allow their teammate to rejoin the vehicle. In the event that a Substitute player is required to sub in for a permanently lost player, the same process will be used to integrate the sub into the field.

It is strongly recommended you have some support members on standby to replace potential game crashes, internet problems, moms/wives unplugging Routers/telling you to mow the lawn, etc, as a team without a mechanic, or medic, will be sorely at a disadvantage, and may even be unable to complete the race! 

 

Keep the entries coming, folks, It's super exciting to see the level of attendance and interest this event has garnered!!
