Today we are ready to announce a new Competitions application for MSFS – ALBATROSS! It is fully integrated with Kinetic Assistant and provides all required functionality to create, participate and analyze different kinds of competitions. We are focused on Gliding contests so this will be our first event.
We have prepared two gliding tasks for you, and are proposing to participate in small competitions. Program in early testing stage, so it will be more testing rather than a sports event, but still a good reason to enjoy soaring in MSFS.
Tasks will be opened from today for testing, so no time will be sent to the server after completion. You can get yourself familiar with the route, or just wait for tomorrow.
14.02.2021 at noon (UTC) the start gate will be opened, and available for 24 hours. So everyone will be able to participate at the most suitable time.
Basic parameters of the starting gate: 5000m elevation (above ground), 500m radius
Parameters of turnpoints and finish: elevation not limited, 500m radius
Program has some basic safe checks – like you have to turn the engine off, or don’t use winch/tow after you passed starting gates, or your result will be reset. Program in the early testing stage, so feel free to report about any issues.
We can use different servers for now (later some way to connect pilots will be added), but maybe we could agree to use a single one – West Europe, so we will see as many people as possible.
So, have fun, tomorrow at 12pm (12:00) UTC starting gates will be opened, and you can race as many times you want.
