Ticket #20 (assigned enhancement)
"Leading to turnpoint" bonus
|Reported by:||ste||Owned by:||ste|
Idea from Gerolf Heinrichs.
Instead of using Leading Coeffisient based on tracklog, set aside some of the 1000 points and give to the top x pilots at some of the turnpoints.
This is similar to what is done in cycling (like Tour de France) with sprint bonus.
The bonus should be given based on the order of pilots crossing a cylinder that is 600 meters wider than the turnpoint-cylinder (normally 400 meters which would give a bonus-cylinder of 1km radius, but sometimes bigger).
Reason why not use the turnpoint itself: Imagine two HG speeding at 100+km side by side racing to be first, then in the instance the 400m radius of the turnpoint is reached both want to change direction asap to go to the next turnpoint ...
Having the edge of the bonus-cylinder 600 meters before the turnpoint-cylinder ensures that "normal" flying is resumed before taking the turnpoint.
How to allocate bonus?
Task-committee must decide on which turnpoints that should have bonus and set a value.
Lets say the sum of winner bonus for all turnpoints including goal is 100 points (given day quality of 1.0) then min 50 points is reserved for the ES turnpoint.
The other 50 points must be divided on the other turnpoints.
If 20 points is for the winner of a turnpoint, then 10 for 2nd, 5 for 3rd, 3 for 4th 2 for 5th, 1 for 6th.
If 10 points is for the winner of a turnpoint, then 5 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th and 1 for 5th.
