Hello all i am [LTC] Pilchje the events organiser for Live To Cruise. After some hard work on behalf of the LTC members we have now put together our 2nd 24 hour endurance race and would like to take this opportunity to open the invites to all who play LiveForSpeed. This is how we have got it layed out for the 2nd Endurance

Name: [LTC] Endurance II

Prize Fund: 2,000,000 LTC Cash

Winning Team: 400,000

2nd Place Team: 300,000

3rd Place Team: 200,000

4th Place Team: 100,000

Other: LTC cash and Licence Points are earned by all drivers while driving

Date: July 11th 00:01 GMT - July 12th - 00:01 GMT

Track: FE4

Vehicles:
Class 1 : Turbo Cup (XRT/RB4/FXO)
Class 2 : Giant Turbo Racers Cup (FXR/FZR/XRR)

Thinking at the minute that it will probably fail?? Then let me show you the results from our past endurance event held April 11th.

End Results (http://www.livetocruise.net/files/enduro_11-04-2009_results.htm)

Distance Driven (http://www.livetocruise.net/enduro_stats_distance_cache.php)

We had around 4 or 5 People who managed to run the whole 24 hours. The server had a good 40+ Participants at the start and with a custom insim built we were able to keep track of all the stats and throughout the whole 24 hours never went under 15 connections


So if you would like to participate then Signups are open :

http://www.livetocruise.net/enduro.php

Rules can be found Here (http://forums.livetocruise.net/showthread.php?t=4397) or Linked on sign up page

If you have any questions then feel free to ask and i will try to answer. Other then that hope to see a few new faces in the event and make it another successful 24Hour event

No speed limits this is just a 24 hour long race. We using some of the cruise insim stuff to display data and show leader boards but it will be all out racing for the most distance over the time

What's the max amount of drivers per team? And can the same person race 2 heats.

What's the max amount of drivers per team? And can the same person race 2 heats.

Teams are 2 members. No substitute drivers after the race starts.

There

Edit: A question about the different car classes, how does that work exactly? Does a team choose what one they will use, and each class races on the same track? If so what if there is only 1 team in a certain class (depending on turn out)?

Also do you mean GMT as London time? Or would that mean 1am for London?

Pilchje3369
22nd June 2009, 22:42
Teams are limited to 2 drivers per team and they can drive as many times as they like in the 24 hours so we can all have breaks etc and not try n drive our selves crazy. Also both members will have to drive the same cars but will both beable to drive at the same time. Is why we say choose partner carefully as if they dont turn up int much good to other person as they will be driving on there own. If this does happen we do give out individual prizes for distance

The Classes will hopefully have more the 1 entry per calss so we all have somebody to compete with. We in LTC will be entering a team in all classes to try encourage people to drive in all classes

Alex_Ward
22nd June 2009, 23:00
Why would both members want to drive at the same time, surely one drive while the other rests and swaps, and so on?

Or is it whoever gets the most distance driven over the 24 hours?

Bmxtwins
22nd June 2009, 23:01
I aint driving 12 hours... maybe if u said like 6 drivers max sure but 2... ehhh no way i can drive that much.

Hello it's [LTC] Krammeh here.

Just a few things to clear up.


You do not have to 'take-over' or anything like that, it is just sit in and drive.
There is a staggered start out of the pits.
It is just sit in and drive as much as you like, you can leave the track & server whenever you like, and the rejoin whenever you like.

It is just based on milage that the two team members can do.


Also, we have pleanty of server slots - we have a server located in the UK and located in the US - if required, we will run more than one LFS host, and spread them accorss the two server locations if it comes down to it. If this is the case, then you will be assigned a server (team mate WILL be on the same server, regardless of racer location, although locations will be taken into consideration). If it turns out that it would be better for two, three, four UK hosts, then so be it. Both servers are good enough to house multiple!

Krammeh
22nd June 2009, 23:24
ps. if the enduro sign up complains that your username has not been found - then join one of the LTC cruise servers (and leave again if you like :P) - as it ensures that you're in our database to check the integrity of the signup

Ok thanks for clearing that up. Do we have to be there for the start of the race, and the end? Or can I start driving at 8 or 9 am or whatever?

Krammeh
23rd June 2009, 10:58
There is no need to be there at the start or the end.

The results get posted on the website/forums a few hours after the race has ended.

23rd June 2009, 12:06
can two team-memebers drive at the same time? :P Like that me and my team-mate drive 24 hours each? So we drive at the same time?

Krammeh
23rd June 2009, 12:24
Each team member can drive on the track, regardless of what the other team member is doing.

So both can be on track, or none can be on track. :) - totally up to the team.


maximum of 48hrs per team to be submitted! :)

You come to server-> Join race -> Driving as much time as you want -> When you get borred or tired you disconect. And doing this again 24 hours and they will cound traveled distance from 2 drivers who will be registred to event and then we will know standings.



In my opinion it's not very intresting, but gl with event

12 hours each?



24 hours each :D

Basically, the server will be open for 24hrs, you and your team mate must drive as many miles as you can within those 24hrs, or as many as you would like to - you don't have to do it in one 'session', you can break these up into sections.

At the end of the 24hrs, the server will be closed and totals will be added up!

The milage is counted and stored by an insim application created especially for the event!

yes indeedy, the last one we done which was only announced on the LTC forum - had a few people not stopping at all (apart from pitstops/repairs)

Pilchje3369
23rd June 2009, 21:14
lol. We have had a few die hards driving in the last so we decided to do Mile awards really as can be seen in one of the links in 1st post. We have a achievement system aswell so you get a lil pop up saying you have driven 100 miles etc. We nearly had a 3000 Mile award last time. We just try to make it a goal to get so far and get something for it and you will be rewarded with it. We wont ask ne body to ovisly drive the 24 hours as we all have other things. We just like to have a laugh and last one was great fun. Even have quite a few people on our teamspeak chatting away. Some people go to a mates house and have like a LAN party over it while they drive drink beers etc

A whole day driving in LFS to get 'money'?
I think it would be more interesting if we have a RACE, to see who's the fastest or so, like the other normal races!!

I can't run a 3 hour leg! LOL

But anyway...

Lets say thats just an added bonus :P

Pilchje3369
24th June 2009, 14:33
We will have Lap records running via the custom insim like we do on cruise but this will be to see who gets the fastest lap in each car which also gives people something to try and beat. We like to try and put things in for both cruisers and racers to try and achieve

buck77
24th June 2009, 14:41
ah, i got it now!!

but will all cars be allowed to any driver?
lets suppose i don't have enough credits to buy a FZR for example...
will i be allowed to race it during the 24h?

The server has now been launched, you can have a look around the server and practice making your sets from now if you wish - ahead of time we know!

ps. Track is FE4!

Pilchje3369
25th June 2009, 16:03
Same as in the AS4 Endurance Race i have Set up a Pit[Rest] Area that must be used if you wish to go AFK for a while. Stopping else where and its possible you will be specced. This is to try and keep accidents down to a minimum. There is 24 hours available so there is no need to rush and get past people, please do so when safe.

Keys In Attachment

Green = Pit Limiter Area
Blue = Entrance
Red = Exit

Name = [LTC] Enduro

Nicely made, but the entrance could be a bit of a problem. You have to take the corner quite tight and slowly in order to get to the entrance, which could be a problem if you got another car at your back that is not expecting you to brake that heavily.

Then, we can use the warning signs :) (I think its 9?) Then, we can "blink" when we're going to stop there :)

So is it possible to take over the car or be in a team with 2 cars and add the distance up?

Hello it's [LTC] Krammeh here.

we have pleanty of server slots - we have a server located in the UK and located in the US - if required, we will run more than one LFS host, and spread them accorss the two server locations if it comes down to it. If this is the case, then you will be assigned a server (team mate WILL be on the same server, regardless of racer location, although locations will be taken into consideration). If it turns out that it would be better for two, three, four UK hosts, then so be it. Both servers are good enough to house multiple!

as far as i know there will be no passwords as you need to be pre registered in order to race in the event, :thumb:

Krammeh
4th July 2009, 21:45
Users would not require a password, after the first 30 minutes of the enduro race being opened, the server will automatically start to kick anybody (probably temp ban - just thought of that one *glee*) that is not registered to the event.

Anybody that IS registered can chop and change throughout the servers during the endurance!

Just to give people a little chance...

During the automated staggered start, the server is passworded with a randomised password

6th July 2009, 21:18
So two servers.
my suggestion would be to name them server 1 - pro and server 2 -novice. would help reduce traffic for faster people and prevent slow people like me, getting in the way too much :D
Also can we use the unused pits as an afk area (i see some barriers have been put in there)

We're not wanting to split up the two classes, although it was thought of.

Parking in the unused pits is allowed!

I think he ment that the people that feels slow (I.E doesnt drive fast) can be on one server, while the people who is really fast can be on the other. But I dont really bother about that, since its fun to lap cars :P

8th July 2009, 10:03
Seems Some people are confused abput the start time as at the moment its GMT +1

So to clear it up it will be 01:00 Start UK in the UK. Not to sure how many hours other countries are behind or ahead

Krammeh
10th July 2009, 20:37
The enduro is starting soon, 3 and a half hours from now.

That is 01:01am UK time. :) 00:01am GMT!

The servers are now public (server names at the bottom of this post). 10 minutes before the start of the enduro all of the insim apps will be given a reboot - which will disable the earning of further miles and will clear all miles stored in the database so far - this will ensure that everybody starts at 0 miles :).

When the enduro is started there will be on screen instructions. Please follow them as close as possible. If you do not understand what is going on, please wait till the end of the starting procedure to ask the questions to stop confusion.

Well it has been yet another BIG success i feel. Showing that there is more then Just cruising here at LTC and show that we can run events on a bigger scale then cruise. We seen connections at a all time high reaching to over 80 players connected and making us have over 10% of the whole of LFS connected to our servers which is absolute brilliant. Have been looking at the distance travelled through the whole thing and there has yet again been some mad drivers really going at it hard. Id like to thank you all again and big thanks to Mark(Krammeh) For sorting the Insim hope to see you at the next event which we will try and host later this year. If you had any concerns or Suggestion to make the next one even better then please post and we will take a look at them all

Final Results will be out in the next few days a Prizes awarded

Afraid not. Only made the connection with the guy just after the enduro finished - part of the deal is that every 30 minutes, there is an advert show within the servers!

I can imagine it now, all pit for the 10 minute advert from the sponsors! no doing other things while this is going on! it doesn't just spam the screen with 'BUY OUR PRODUCTS, BUY OUR PRODUCTS, BUY OUR PRODUCTS' etc etc does it? :D

Pilchje3369
13th July 2009, 22:31
they arent gettin no money for finishing in the top 5. that is like a runners up prize to others and to make sure they get something for driving a good distance hence why its alot less then the winners

racer hero
14th July 2009, 02:40
They should probablly get it too, since Tommy and I won, but I still got the 25,000... :razz:

Tomhah
14th July 2009, 11:28
so why did Kenneth O'Keefe get 25 000? We won :P But he gets money for driving less than me? That sounds unfair in my ear.
