SummerSoaring 2015 is a summer season soaring online competition, based on Condor: The Soaring Simulator.
Austria 2.0, Czechoslovakia 3.0, Slovenia HD, Provence 2.0, New Zealand 0.8, HW_SWGermany 1.08, Mifflin 1.0.
Racing day is Saturday. servers starts at 19:00 CEST (A) or 21:00 CEST (B). The complete competition calendar here.
Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator is designed to recreate the ultimate experience of competition soaring on your PC. A lot of attention was put in to create an environment which would create an immersion of real competition flying. This means that the aerodynamics and weather physics were in focus of the development. The result is amazingly real feel of flight in all flight regimes and weather conditions which challenges a real soaring pilot on a competition day.
Amazing feel of flight due to the advanced flight dynamics model: Advanced 6DOF flight model for complete freedom of flying / Accurate sailplane performance and handling – also at and beyond critical angles of attack / Sailplane damage simulation – flutter, high G stress, collisions / High time fidelity physics engine (up to 500 cycles per second) / Accurate ground forces for realistic takeoffs, landings and crashes / Detailed, sub-object collision detection for mid air and ground object collisions / Accurate conditions for a realistic towing and winch start.
Each race will be scored with ShowCondorIGC and calcutated to 1000 points. IGC/DAeC index will be used for scoring. Overall result is count of best 6 results from total 12 flights (best of 50% results). Results of racing days and also overall score will be posted on this website next day after actuall race is done. Cloud flying will be penalized with 60 penalty points per minute. Outland in task - points for distance, crash and status "Racing" will be scored with zero points.
Every pilot has to own legal copy of Condor (version 1.1.5). Any modification of the application or any of the aircraft is forbidden and will be penalized by disqualification from the competition. Participation in the contest is free of charge, no registration for this summer contest is needed.
The competition starts on June 13, 2015, last competition day is August 29, 2015. Racing day is Saturday. Server A starts at 19:00 CEST (17:00 UTC), server B starts at 21:00 CEST (19:00 UTC). The complete competition calendar is here.
We will used these Condor sceneries: Austria 2.0, Czechoslovakia 3.0, Slovenia HD, Provence 2.0, New Zealand 0.8, HW_SWGermany 1.08, Mifflin 1.0.
The contest will be flown in the following classes: Club, 15-Meter, 18-Meter, Standard, Open. Racing tasks with allowed PDA only. IGC/DAeC index will be used for scoring. Each race will be scored with ShowCondorIGC and calcutated to 1000 points. Overall result is count of best 6 results from total 12 flights (best of 50% results). Results of racing days and also overall score will be posted on this website next day after actuall race is done. Cloud flying will be penalized with 60 penalty points per minute. Outland in task - points for distance, crash and status "Racing" will be scored with zero points. Pilot, who has valid start on server A, will get score from server A - even if he fly again on server B.
In case of your internet disconnect you have option to fly task offline. You can send your IGC after finishing task offline via e-mail. Communication between contest organizers and contestants will be an e-mail.
