2013 RFL relay for life event TEAWR

Time Essential Airship Wreck Rally

time essential rally: successful finish?

We did another fun rally this year for RFL Second Life.
It works something like this:

May 12, Saturday, 9am SLT

The ‘Time Essential’ Airship Wreck Rally is a whimsical event for the greater good of RFL and the entertainment of all of You. All fees go to Team Caledon RFL. All builds and judging is by volunteers, please be patient with our volunteers.

Here is the ‘Time Essential’ nature of our daring contest.

1. racers go off in five minute increments (Judge will supply SLURL for next Goal)
2. racers arrive Goal (must stop at marked phantom glowing goal—above circle target prim)
3. each Goal Judge records arrival time (will be compared to target script clock)
4. each racer ‘WRECKS’ part of their airship (edit vehicle for single prims, unlink piece, and then toggle unlinked prim to PHYSICAL) ((warning! Edit blue highlight prims only, never the yellow highlight root prim, please see notecard hints!))
5. Unlinked vehicle prim falls to target prim below stopped vehicle, bounces, and is judged for closeness to bullseye (judge notes bonus)
6. racer zooms off to next Goal (Judge will supply SLURL for next Goal)
7. repeat to end of course (planned for 6-9 Goals)
8. vehicle times between judges are added
9. bonus for ‘wrecked parts’ is subtracted from total time
10. single bonus for most Creative WRECK (120 seconds!) at finale once all vehicles have arrived

Black Ribbons will be awarded for ‘posthumous gallantry in the air’ for Vehicles lost or sim-crossing limbo’d

Gold Badge and Trophy Airship for First Place

Silver Badge for Second Place and Trophy Gadget

Bronze Badge for Third Place and Trophy Gadget

starting point in the skies of Port Caledon…

Sim crossings borked but under study

Sim crossings borked but under study

Many server updates and render changes are in the works. Maybe you have seen all the chat about server side baking?

Anyhow, one of the issues right now is slow/fast vehicle crossings of sim borders results in crash to desktop more often than not.  Folks are working on it.

I bring this up because… SURPRISE!…  the T.E.A.W.R. event is coming in May.  Solace is going to help me with this again this year (truth be told, she is a steady hand and two heads are better than one, believe it!).  I need to do posters and map the necessary gates and consider some design suggestions made last year.

I believe that SL will cooperate with TEAWR crossings EVEN if this crossing problem is not 100% cured by May. Ours is not a FAST race, it is more about control of your craft, edit/build actions at gates, and staying on time for a long course.  SLOW DOWN for a crossing. You will make more points in the rally by getting that prim drop on the gate target.

Crashes out of world each year, can be spectacular, but are not fatal to the event. You do get a nice medal for smacking back into the Real World (pilots, just ask me for the Valor Medal after the rally!)
