On VFAT Friday we will once again have an Air Race!

Like last year, signing up for this Air Race is not required and anyone (also pilots that do not fly on VFAT) owning Flaming Cliffs 2 can take part to the VFAT Air Race!

If you want to take part of the air race, please join our VFAT Teamspeak 3 server at 00:30 GMT (we will give a short briefing).

Rules:
- Fastest time comes on the first place.
- Miss one of the pilons, flying too high or hitting them, +5 seconds.
- Immortal will be OFF!
- Unlimited Fuel will be OFF!
- You must put smoke on after takeoff.

The price? Being the fastest VFAT Air Race pilot for one year!  Cheesy

---------------------------------------

Here you can watch the intro flight of the air race!

Hmm, when I try to run the mission (or load it into the ME), I got a /blackshark/modules/me_coalitions.lua error. Don't know about others, but might there be something missing in the mod (like references to the new objects maybe) ?

Please confirm if anyone has the same problem, we have tested it online tonight and didn't encounter this error.

Ok, got it, sorry. I was trying to run the mission in Single Player. So, everyone be advised, it works only in Multiplayer !

Alright, I have been able to try this year's track. Well, very good job, Wine, that's a very interesting track, with some tricky parts. It will be interesting to see how everyone handles it Smiley

Oh, and I have a few questions:

- what about fuel (in the mission, Su-27s have ~20% fuel while F-15s have 100%) ?
- what about Gs (in the mission, G-effects are deactivated) ?
- and btw, immortal is ON in the mission

By the way, just in case the video is not clear or practical to everyone, here is the track in God's Eye view (sorry for the bad quality !):

It's not 100% clear from the video, but from the pylon scheme it looks like you missed the rhomboidal 4-pylons section for the second pass. I think that it should be more like that (green line):

Very nice job Wine! This track looks very interessting!
But, no Air Race for me this year. Good luck to all! Even if Robin hood will win another one!  Grin I don't know if this proverb is used in English Language, but in French, we say : " Never 2 without 3! "  Grin Grin

The fuel setting is because of the thrust to weight ratio ...
The G setting can be activated by the host, the VFAT staff in this case.
The Immortal, will be deactivated by the host, the VFAT staff in this case ... or just give it a try  Grin Grin Grin

And thanks for the input on the "God's eye view", we'll done, the edit by Zefirro too  Wink
