IMPORTANT NEWS

 

Those interested in joining the Atomic Sim Racing (formerly Atomic F1) GP2 Championship can find information on the Atomic Sim Racing forums

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

What is Atomic F1?

Atomic F1 is a community of atomicans who get together and race F1 cars

 

The main competition is now in Season 5, and with each season gains more popularity and drivers. This has meant that space was limited, and new and old drivers alike were missing out. Therefore, there is now to series; the original series and the secondary series

 

The GP2 Championship was set up for the more casual racers. While the races will still be exciting, it is more about having fun than anything else. We welcome any new drivers to the series, and hope everyone enjoys it

 

You can read more about Atomic F1 in the primary competition thread, and here on the official site

 

The Game

For this season, we are using the PC version of Formula 1 2011. This is available on Steam for around $50 (as of time of writing this), and in retail stores

 

If you'd like to know how to set your car up, you can ask us here (someone is bound to know what you're talking about :-P) or in the main thread, or read one of kikz's many detailed guides on www.f1speedguides.com

 

General Rules

Be considerate to all other drivers; this is not a destruction derby. Make use of voice chat. If you are overtaking a slower car, coming out of the pits, or have spun off, please say something about it. This minimises the chance of accidents

 

In-game Communication

We do not use the included Games for Windows Live (GFWL) voice chat system in F1 2011, as this is found to negatively impact network performance, causing issues for all drivers. We use Ventrilo, which a is fantastic free program that is commonly used by many gamers. The details for the Vent server are below:

 

Hostname - tritium.typefrag.com

Port - 35406

PM me (nobody813) for the password

 

Race Rules and Scoring System

There are to be no driving aids allowed, except for automatic gearboxes. However, it is highly recommended that you use manual, as it will often result in faster lap times, and gives greater control over the car

 

Many of the drivers will be using steering wheels, but keyboards and controllers can be used. We suggest that all participants have at least a controller, as this gives the player much better control of their vehicles

 

The scoring system is as follows:

 

Qualifying

1st - 5 points

2nd - 4 points

3rd - 3 points

4th - 2 points

5th - 1 point

 

Race

1st - 25 points

2nd - 18 points

3rd - 15 points

4th - 12 points

5th - 10 points

6th - 8 points

7th - 6 points

8th - 4 points

9th - 2 points

10th - 1 points

Haha, Red Frog, very nice.

 

Hey Nobody, do you mind changing the logo in the OP to this one hosted on imageshack, the first one is on my TPG space, and it seems to be stuffing it up as I can't log into my account anymore because of too much traffic. Cheers.

Great looking logo guys very very cool. So what day are you running this league race on ? If it's Saturday night then I could join a few as I cant always make the Sunday night F1 races due to work but would like to have a race when this occurs.

The idea of GP2 is that we can race competitively with eachother without GP1 guys blitzing us, Jase :P

 

 

Anyway, I'll stick with Ferrari... I kind of like the red now.

 

 

GFWL: Chigerama

I'll wait on teams for now, but I don't mind if we all have team mates. This'll be a purely individual thing any way

 

Any info I have on race setups I'll be passing around to everyone. As for points, I don't give a rats if I don't get any haha. Just wanna have some fun :-D

 

Updating the OP now with new members, and new logo

 

EDIT: Done, but without teams for Nukey and Caelum, and fredz's custom team ;-)

Great effort CC. I'm in for GP2 but at this stage I can only commit to being a Sunday night regular. Any other night and I'll do my best for guest appearances...

IMPORTANT

 

Now that kikz has added advertising to the Atomic F1 site, it's now a commercial entity.

 

That means we need to redesign the Atomic F1 logo, as well as the GP2 logo so it in no way resembles the official Haymarket logo, for obvious reasons.

 

Fallen - you did an amazing job with GP2 - would you like to have a stab at this? It must look completely different to the Atomic logo, so can't use Eurostile (atomic font).

 

Will also post this in the season 5 thread so it's not missed.
