    It looks like the Competition Result is crossing off some scores from previous tasks and substituting new points. We haven’t been able to figure out why. It seems to be new to FS 2014. What’s the reasoning/logic?

    Hi FlyAboveAll

    Sorry for the late response, your message was not forwarded to me for some reason.

    With FS 2014, we introduce a system that is called FTV. The idea is that for each competitor, the worst results are crossed out and do not count towards the overall ranking. This way the “luck factor” is reduced, and people can fly more offensively, which makes for more attractive competitions.

    This is mainly for high level competitions. If you don’t want to use FTV, you can set the FTV factor in the competition setup screen to 0% – this means that no tasks or portions of tasks will be dropped from the overall scores.

    For the math behind FTV, see the last chapter of http://www.fai.org/downloads/civl/SC7_GAP
