Description

Hi FS-experts,

what is the best way to setup a "flex-task" that

  • can be used for a competition with pilots of very different skills
  • has a defined start and goal
  • track is of type out-and-return or triangle

the idea is to have

  • one or more must-have turnpoints with big cylinders
  • every pilot should enter the cylinders as in a race, but should have the choice to set his own real turnpoint inside (!) the cylinder, i.e. he should not leave it.
  • pure distance-related scoring

How would be the best solution for that? 1) I guess that except for the "inside" requirement it would just be an "Open distance via turnpoints" task, but the "The pilot who get furthest away in any direction from the last turnpoint win the task." is not exactly what I need. 2) Is the "inside" requirement somehow supported?

thanks

Rüdiger

ok, I now see that this is mostly the request to support "assigned area tasks"

apart from that: Is there any reasonable way to set a flexible, closed task with the existing version?

Hi Rüdiger

AAT is currently not supported by FS, since it's not an official task type for paraglider or hang glider competitoins within CIVL. We would love to have a more flexible task and scoring engine, but currently, the way FS is implemented, the task types and scoring mechanisms are woven throughout everything.

So I'm afraid with the current version, the flexibility you're looking is not available.
