View Full Version : LXO - The LX only Cup is about to start

Hello,

me and troy are very pleased to announce the start of our LXO Cup. This league includes LX4 and LX6 which will be driven on 10 diversified combos which require different skills - e.g. race duration ranging from 20min to 1h30m or driving both on tarmac and gravel. We are confident this will not only provide variety and fun for everyone on the grid, but also allow drivers to show own abilities like long-term consistency or fast pace when going offroad.

As you can see in the race calendar (http://lxo.musicbit.ch/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=44&Itemid=2) Westhill International Reverse (WE1R) is the first track to be driven with LX4 on 2008-05-11 and will start at 18:30 UTC (18:00 UTC for endurance). Feel free to browse the web site, but please make sure to read and understand the league rules (http://lxo.musicbit.ch/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46&Itemid=53) if you are interested in signing up. We are trying to organize an LFSF subforum as soon as possible.

There are 24 slots available for season one and we hope to fill them during the next weeks. Weekly LX events (http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=33952) are still open for everyone, but will be the practice part of LXO and run the next combo for both public and league drivers.

Kind regards

EDIT: Because there seems to be some confusion with the timezones again:

18:00 UTC
19:00 UTC+1 DST (UK)
20:00 UTC+2 CEST (Central Europe)
21:00 UTC+3 EEST (Eastern Europe)

Awesome, I am in if this doesn't mess with the Gentlefoot dates so I need to do a little research there. Glad to see a day and time that I can handle :)

[EDIT] Aww, I can't do it because it will run close into GFC for three races : / I can't have 2 serious events that close together. And I just got a good jump on the GFC season this time around!! :) If it was starting at 17:00 utc I could probably do it but still two major events on the same day. (Or better yet if you started 1 week later and held 1 event every other week that would be awesome :) hehe

Sorry, but we mainly considered of GTTC drivers due to the different characteristic of the cars (single seater) included in GFC.

I would think your cutting off GTTC drivers as well, although why not stagger the weeks? I think that will allow more practice for people and I would (honestly) really enjoy this one, at least most of the events, idk about rallying but definitely the others :(

16th April 2008, 17:20
I really understand that you'd like to join, but our schedule is final now and we cannot change it because of one or two drivers. We do not really interfere with GTTC (16:00 UTC) as qualifying plus race usually last about one hour, thus there's at least a ~60min gap afterwards.

Two questions -

One: Why can't you change it where its only been posted for a matter of hours, the day and time could be the same just every other week where it doesn't conflict with any GF stuff. I already can't join the LX Wednesdays because of where I live : / and I understand the importance of locking down a schedule however its very early on and this would be the time to do it...

Two: How many people would it take, because I could probably get a few of my teammates that are in GTTC and GFC to signup if it didn't interfere with GF days... I know your not gaining anything by letting me race but I would be gaining a lot... I think troy already knows how much I would like to be in it :p

Though I'm still a bit wary of the LX6. Nevertheless I'm going to try to tame it.

if we would change it now there is another guy coming tomorrow who meets his aunt every sunday at 6pm wanting us to put it one hour forward :D, we looked at different leagues and their start times and tried to not affect other ongoing seasons to much while still providing a reasonable starting time for most of the different timezones.

as trio already said gttc ends one hour before we start, that should be enough time to get some rest and prepare everything you need for the next race.

Ya, the time is fine, its just conflicting with me doing GFC

Yea, 1 hour is enough time to get into the next event, however this still runs into the GFC time and I won't be missing that, not even for something I've wanted for a while... GTTC isn't the one I care so much about since I am off to a great start in the GFC... But meh, I guess I will stop trying to get it alternative weekends since it apparently can't happen :( Good luck with it though.

I'm afraid we won't change the race schedule anymore, like troy (http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?p=771871#post771871) explained.

Yea its unfortunate that a few of the events will be conflicting with GFC which means I won't make those but I did sign up for the cup and am pretty excited to drive around with you guys - I can't make the LX racing on Wednesdays due to my timezone and I am working at that time, but I will catch you on track sometime.

I've discussed that issue with troy earlier, but we decided not to regulate the usage of skins, number plates (which many public skins include anyway) or real names - it's completely up to you if you'd like to use your own.

Thank you for the laud! There's no problem if you are using a real name.


PS: Slightly off-topic, but we are still lacking drivers in my XRT+RB4 event (http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=41891) on 2008-05-04. Please feel free to have a look and sign-up if you like. :)

But can you make somthing like topic where we can put our skins ?
if we all have the 2048X2048 skins from all drivers it will look better in replays etc :tilt:

The races will be held at 18:30 UTC resp. 18:00 UTC for endurance. Latter seems to be a bit inappropriate for you, but if you make it till the race starts (quali plus following break), you'll be allowed to start from the back.

Just out of curiosity, what did everyone else type in the comment box? A mini story? Maybe what you had for dinner tonight?.....

And if it STILL hasn't worked, then forget it, i cannot believe an online form can be so infuriating!

Hello everyone,

I've been working for about an hour on a logo and number plate so here it is in the pack. I guess if you want to use it you can but if you don't too bad :P.

There is a PSD format for both the logo and the number plate as well as a version with transparent background for the number plates. I just realised I forgot to add transparent background version of the logo but I guess that the PSD will do. If not well let me know :).

There is a space at the botom of the number plate were u can add a sponsor or whatever too.

Hope you like it ;)

thanks mate, they look great, i will add that to the skin thread if your ok with it. they won't be mandatory (at least not in season1) of course but if somebody wants to use them, go ahead. :)

btw, do you need a SC skin?

no thanks, there will be a safety car on big pileups but the leading car will take that roll, so no need for skins.

Hi, I read through the rules properly just now & I've got some questions for the organizers...

Will the LX Weekly event be using the same combo as LXO once the league is underway? But with shorter durations, right?

During qualifications, can we ask to pit but we have to wait for a reply? I'm just wondering how strict this rule is...i mean could we ask if we span on a hotlap or is it more like we're only allowed to pit if it's undrivable/no fuel?

About the Lag Lap - am I correct in understanding that we must not change positions? As it would mean going to the entry screen to put everyone in the correct order?

And the last thing - if the Safety Car is called for (hopefully it won't!) it's stated that 'Once the accident is cleared and the track is free again, the safety car phase ends with a green flag and normal racing continues instantaneous.'
Now that's not too clear to me. Exactly when is overtaking is permitted for each car? Is the rule no overtaking until you've crossed the Start/Finish line or is it just how it reads & all Go on Green?

ussbeethoven
25th April 2008, 10:13
Will the LX Weekly event be using the same combo as LXO once the league is underway? But with shorter durations, right?
Yes, you're right - beginning with 2008-05-07.
During qualifications, can we ask to pit but we have to wait for a reply? I'm just wondering how strict this rule is...i mean could we ask if we span on a hotlap or is it more like we're only allowed to pit if it's undrivable/no fuel?
You are not allowed to telepit when running out of fuel or having a crash (= you cannot reach the pits), only when qualifying is over ( la "You are now free to pit." ingame) and you'd like to adjust fuel or setup for the following race. But as there was another driver asking the same question, I'll clarify and rewrite the particular rules today.
About the Lag Lap - am I correct in understanding that we must not change positions? As it would mean going to the entry screen to put everyone in the correct order?
No, we would have to use the entry screen in case of Shift+S/P or out-of-bounds accidents due to LFS limitations (driver will lose determined position) only.
And the last thing - if the Safety Car is called for (hopefully it won't!) it's stated that 'Once the accident is cleared and the track is free again, the safety car phase ends with a green flag and normal racing continues instantaneous.'
Now that's not too clear to me. Exactly when is overtaking is permitted for each car? Is the rule no overtaking until you've crossed the Start/Finish line or is it just how it reads & all Go on Green?
Basically normal racing conditions apply as soon as the green flag is shown, well instantaneous. :)

You are not alone. I've been driving the LX6 for a week now.
Just take it easy and start by keeping the beastly LX6 on the track. The speed will come eventually. Atleast that's what I've been told.

We'll have a battle at the rear. See you there.

Yes. And it is WAY easier to drive than the LX6.
I think that getting to know the LX6 will help with my LX4 driving too.
Ofcource I'll practise with the LX4 too but right now my main problem is keeping the LX6 under control.

Since this seems to be a kind of general chit chat thread here I'll post this here.

About the chat rules:
3.5 After the finish
After crossing the finish line, all drivers should perform a cool down lap at reduced speed and stop in pit stalls. Chatting is reallowed when every driver finished his race.
Does this mean that after the last driver has crossed the finish line chat is free OR after everyone have done the cool down lap and entered the pit stalls?

troy
27th April 2008, 17:31
that means if the last driver crossed the finish line you can talk. :)

Do we need a laglap? It only has a function when you end race and go back to the initial server screen.

ussbeethoven
29th April 2008, 10:04
Do we really have to discuss on the use of lag laps? :)
You can also use them to watch how fast your competitors (resp. their setups) are able to start - useful for the 'real' race.

Sorry to hear you couldn't make it. :(
Thus it means [SR]Andrei221 has moved onto the regular drivers list.

It might be a good idea to have a team championship as well, seeing that many teams has at least two drivers. (Yeah, Dave, you count for two :D). What do you say?

That is too bad.

The team championship would be interesting. Atleast an unofficial one?

Rudy van Buren
30th April 2008, 15:40
Well for me it wont be big diference.. becaus im only spdo..

If we do it ETM style it would be fun.. su just dont look at real team but just make teams out of the drivers on the list :)

Off course we can make an unnoficial one and someone could post the points and all if they're willing to. Would be fun :D

No, we won't enforce teams at this point, but there's no problem to create an unofficial ranking. The only requirement: the teams must consist of two drivers to be counted, so [AR] for example may split into [AR]#1 and #2 for LXO.

[GR]Evolution

Or the two higher results of the team will count...

I understand your wish to compete as a single team, but this method may lead into better chances to place and thus means advantages over others consisting of two drivers. Apart from that you are free to form LXO Cup teams, however it would be mainly for fun due to the unofficial character of the team ranking in Season One only.

Understand that, either way, in the end it's fun we are searching for, nothing more... That's why we play, right?

Right, but I meant for fun only as doesn't count for championship standings. Nevertheless we'd like to organize the ranking in a fair manner regardless of the unofficial character - I think you'll agree that it's part of providing enjoyment in any league as well. :)

Just a thought, but could we perhaps have some sig bars? My bott one doesnt seem to be working anymore, would be nice to replace it with a proper LXO one. :)

i just asked mr.tea if i can use his logo to try and make an lxo sig bar out of it. will report here if i have any success ^^

tea had no problem with it, so here my first try. probably need to work on the logo again, maybe a bit smaller? or anyone got any better ideas?

it's better then my first go, but i'm still missing the "this is it" effect. i'm trying to improve it a bit and then see if we can get the bb code set up from victor :)

was answered already some days ago rudy, you can build 2 man teams to compete in the unofficial team championship, as said from trio.

So guys, since AR is closed now and I don't have a team, anybody interested in making a team with me for the LXO Cup? Any offers accepted. :D

P.S. Didn't find a better place to post it :shrug:.

Well, I am going to try and stick with the league till the end, so if you want, we can still be team mates, just change the name to.........alien & novice, or good & bad, or little & large :shrug:

Lol Danny. I'm willing to keep you as a teammate, if of course you are not retiring for the league (I hope not).

Thank you for the invitation Loco, although I'm a bit too young to travel yet :razz:. I would for a team with Dave but if the team championship was official. Since it's just for fun I don't think it would be fair for others...

As far as I understand you and Haris like to stay as one team - so please agree on its name for LXO championship standings. :)
