    Steward Notes
    • Please review the latest additions to the regulations before joining.
    • Please make sure your line-up is up to date. Communicate any changes in the Sign-Up thread. The current state of your line-up can be found there too.
    Safety-first Zones

    The following diagram indicates the location of Safety-first Zones for Round 2, the Thrustmaster 6 Hours of Silverstone:
    Silverstone-zoned.png

    The yellow zone, which shall be in effect during the first lap following a start or restart, shall commence along the start / finish straight and end at the exit of Chapel / entry to the Hangar Straight.

    The orange zones, of which there are 4, shall be enforced for the duration of the race, and are positioned as follows:
    • Starting at the entry of Village, and ending at the exit of The Loop
    • Starting at the entrance to Brooklands, and ending at the exit of Luffield
    • Starting at the entry of Maggots, through Becketts, and ending at the exit of Chapel
    • Vale
    Please refer to the image at the top of this post for corner names.

    For those unable to easily distinguish the yellow zone from the orange zones, the yellow zone colour has been switched to blue in the track diagram below. Please click on the thumbnail to expand the image.

    Pit Entry Positioning

    For the race at Silverstone, we recommend that any cars intending to enter the pits should stay as far right (towards the inside of the track) as possible when exiting Stowe. Any cars looking to overtake should do so around the outside / left side of the track, as the pit entry lane is approached.

    Physical Driver Swap Penalty Position

    Following a physical driver swap, the new driver is expected to drive to the end of the pit-lane and stop for 5 seconds (the time for an in-game driver swap) to account for any time that could be gained. Race Control should be informed when a swap is due to be performed so that a steward can be sent to oversee the pit-stop and ensure that the 5 second "penalty" is served. Please refer to the attached images ('Physical Driver Swap Penalty Box #.JPG') which show where the driver is expected to stop the car after a physical driver swap has been performed.

    This thread may be subject to changes. Please review regularly.

    IMPORTANT!

    The server for Round 2 - RACEDEPARTMENT.COM LMS R2 - is now available for testing and training; live timing and live weather have been enabled. Once again I have also set up the server for dry-only testing - RACEDEPARTMENT.COM LMS DRY - and this is also connected to the live timing system. Please let me know if there are any issues, or if you have any questions.

    I can't seem to download the track; ''Package not available''.
    E: I get verification failed too, but only on the ''Dry'' server. The live one gives me ''Package not available''.

    Apologies guys, the GetMod service is currently down therefore you will not be able to download required resources by logging in to the rF2 dedicated server, until GetMod server itself has been restarted. Unfortunately this is completely out of our control, and I cannot upload the track component file at this moment, thus there is little more I can do in this instance and at this time. I will not actually be able to upload the track until tomorrow at the earliest.

    An alternative to downloading required resources via the server is to join the private Steam Workshop group for the RDLMS. This is a much more reliable and convenient means of acquiring and managing necessary files to access the server, and it will allow you to download updates quicker. In case you have not seen it already, you can find more information here.

    Sorry again for the issues and inconvenience.

    Hey chaps, unfortunately the GetMod service is still down, therefore missing resources cannot be automatically downloaded and installed when you access the server. In case you would prefer not to join the Steam Workshop group I have included a password protected link to allow you to manually download and install the track component file in the opening post of this thread. The password is the same as that for logging in to the server. I have not yet uploaded the file to RaceDepartment itself because the track is still in beta whilst development is being completed - more on this in the next post.

    ANNOUNCEMENT!

    Please be aware that the server has been set up with and is currently using a "beta" version of the track, whilst it is still being prepared for league use. Therefore you may find minor bugs / issues that still need to be ironed out. Please direct any questions about the track, or bug reports to @Gijs van Elderen. An announcement shall be made each time a new version of the track is released and made available.

    Does anyone know why the track temperature seems to constantly stay at 20C all the time? I was on the server the other day and the ambient temp was 2 degrees, with a track temp of 20, lol.

    Something not right with the real weather plugin?

    You need to force the track temp at a certain value to make the plugin work unfortunately
