Atomic F1 GP1 Season 7

It begins, again. Woo!

 

Newcomers please post EOI, we can't say how many slots are available until existing drivers confirm, but let it be known if you're keen now! There will almost certainly be slots available.

 

 

THE SITE

 

Atomic f1.net

 

Ladders, stats, stories, profiles, guides, forums - damn near everything!

 

 

THE GAME

 

Codemasters F1 2012 on PC

 

Up to 16 players

 

 

 

THE RACES

 

One race each week following the calendar order in the game.

 

Session starts every Sunday night at 7:30pm EST, except when real world races and public holidays clash, see the schedule for these special dates and times.

 

Qualifying for the grid, then 50% race distance. It usually wraps up about 9pm-ish.

 

 

THE RULES

 

In-game race penalties apply, per FIA F1 rules. Penalties set to Reduced because the game is too aggressive with innocent incidents.

 

All driver aids are forced off. Manual gearbox is forced on.

 

Cars are set to equal performance.

 

We don't usually attempt to resolve post-race disputes, much better if drivers simply stay clean. Anyone being a persistent arse may be given a penalty of 1 or more races, or in the worst case asked to leave.

 

 

 

THE CHAMPIONSHIP

 

A Drivers and a Constructors championship will be held.

 

Many existing teams from last season are expected to carry over. New racers can organise themselves into a team, we'll help you do that if needed.

 

Points are awarded according to in-game (and real world) rules.

 

DNFs are awarded no points.

 

 

 

THE CARS

 

Last-season drivers have priority if they wish to stay with the car they drove last season. New drivers don't necessarily need to nominate a car straight away in order to register interest.

 

Drivers moving across from GP2 will have first choice of available cars (those not taken by GP1 S6 racers).

 

New racers choose from what's remaining after that.

 

Remember - they are set to equal so it ultimately doesn't matter.

 

 

 

FRIDAY NIGHT PRACTICE

 

Almost always on, just for kicks. Come and go as you please, or not at all. Starts about 8:30, though people in earlier tend to start a session and newcomers are just invited in as they arrive (so long as it's not mid race).

 

It's fun, slightly crazy, and a great way to get a feel for what sort of performance is expected if you wanna jump in. It's never a full 50% race, usually a sequence of shorter races with and without qualy.

This equalises all voices so they're about the same volume, thanks Modz:

 

Go to Setup

Enable Direct Sound

Select the SFX Button

Select Compressor and click Add.

Under Compressor Properties use the following settings:

Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be. (I use 15)

Attack = 0.01

Release = Around 500

Threshold = Around -30

Ratio = 100

Pre delay = 4.0

Done!

It's with a heavy heart that I leave Renault/Lotus. 6 seasons in the same car....

 

But a new exciting chapter will emerge, the Flouncy/Lambo band has been put back together after a 5 year hiatus.

 

Flukey to Ferrari, didn't see that move happening. Silicnt + Eradicator? Mark to move back to his heart team?

Gah!! I wanted Lotus!! I hate you so much right now. :)

 

Don't check the forums in the morning and my teams are already gone!

 

Can I have 2 preferences please Flouncy as I'm not sure what previous members are wanting to do.

 

ToF and Intense for Mercedes (depending on Steve's movements, please reconsider - you get to have the Macca!). Else if, we will go Sauber since Lotus is taken.

 

Thanks.

You never told me to be quick Lambo! You just said you were still deciding. :P

 

It's ok, I actually really want the Mercedes and the Lotus was my 2nd preference.

 

Steve, I've seen you drive the McLaren in your offline videos, maybe you have a soft spot for it? :P It is the most successful seat so far so if you have no ties to Mercedes, please reconsider. :) Schmeval and I also left the team at a very high standard over the last 2 seasons..

After some back room deals I'll be taking the second seat.

I'm noticing a trend with you and back doors... and rooms.

 

But seriously, your team is unfair. You 2 are going to dominate season 7 like Schmeval and me dominated the last 2 seasons lol. ...BRING IT ON!!

I'll post just to confirm I'll be in S7 of GP1 series.

 

As to what team remains unclear. I'm gunning (and reserve a spot) for either Williams or Sauber.

Which one depends on what any potential team mates might like.

 

With the Flambo combo confirmed I'd like a team mate that can help me beat those two in the constructors title. Us vet drivers have grudge matches to settle! If you're up for the challenge let me know :)

 

 

EDIT: Flouncy. Monday races are ok, but 7:30 doesn't work for me at all. That's basically when I get home from work. If you make it 8:30 that'll allow me to get some dinner down and join in.

It's been a monumental past 2 seasons with McLaren and I'm very thankful to them for supplying me with such a strong car and awesome team mate.

 

It's time for a change however and I will be joining Dazza at Force India for Season 7.

 

All these team changes are gonna make for a very interesting constructors champ.....

Flukey, i'm going to leave the team mate decision up to you. I happy either way but as the adjusted calendar stands, I'll be missing huge chunk of the races due to work and other commitments. So i understand if you would like someone who can race more. If you do want someone else I'll take a a spot else where in an empty team or move to GP2.

If the FIA could consider Saturday night instead of a week day that would be great, but i understand if it's already been decided.

Modzy we'll have to wait and see if GP1 fills up before locking you in, because it's only fair we accept fully-able racers for a position when you're only available for about half the races.

Sorry but no chance. It's much more likely people will be home on a Monday night than Saturday.
