Description (last modified by oyvellef) (diff)
When setting up an Elapsed time task it must be possible to set the SS close time independently of the prevous TP close time. This task type combines the elements of last startgate in race and elapsed time.
Example elapsed time task;
- Takeoff open at 12:00 close at 17:00
- SS open at 13:00 close at 14:00
- ES open at 13:00 close at 20:00
This should give the late starters 14:00 as their start-time, even if they take off at 16:59 and don't exit the start circle until 19:59
This task is not possible to set up in FS 1.3.1 as it will re-adjust the closing time of SS to 17:00 in the example above.
This used to be possible in earlier versions of FS (Unless I had to do it manually...) Does not work in FS 1.1 either, nor with GAP 2002.
This type of task is often a solution for unpredictable days, where it might be racing conditions, but it might as well rain during the 13-14 period. It will give the late startes few or none timepoints, but distance points are still available so the task can be valid and score well for those that have patience or skills to stay in the air.
This type of task is quite common, and must be supported.
