The XGN practice server (up 24x7) is called XGN.COM.AU Tues League Practice
The XGN race night server is called XGN TUE RACE
. This server is only up on race nights.
The race server has a set entry list, meaning you can only join the race server if you have signed up on these forums and signed up for a season. PM Wally to get the password.
Once you've signed up, PM me (Wally) your Assetto Corsa GUID (your driver ID, e.g. 76561197992453305). You can find your GUID in My documents/assetto corsa/cfg/race.ini, once you've joined any online server to have the game record your GUID.
To find the XGN server, set your online filters as shown here and search for XGN.Pit Lane Penalty app - mandatory app
The Pit Lane Penalty app is mandatory for season races. It is used to penalise excessive track cutting. You can download the app here
It gives you 3 warnings for cutting the track and on the 4th cut, you will get 10 seconds added to your race time at the end of the race.Current Season Rules
Look for the stickied current season sign up thread in the Tuesday sub-forum
, to read about any rules specific to the current season.TeamSpeak
TeamSpeak is encouraged, for fun and better communication, so you know when the server is being restarted between races, when it's back up etc. TeamSpeak can be downloaded here
The TeamSpeak server is ts.xgn.com.au.
Once you're on TS, you need to poke Wally or an admin & ask them nicely to give you access to the Assetto Corsa channel.Recommended Apps
The Helicorsa app
is recommended, to give you awareness of cars around you.
A track map app such as the one built into AC is also recommedned, to give you awareness of oncomign traffic when exiting pits are re-entering the track after an accident.Turn 1 Racing Etiquette
To avoid turn 1 incidents, in turns 1 and 2 of the opening lap, stay on your side of the track
, i.e. leave racing room for the cars around you. Don't close up the gap by cutting acorss to the apex on the other side of the track. All cars will come through safely this way without big pileups.Redress
If you hit someone else in a race and unfairly gain a position, e.g. if they've gone off the track, you are expected to redress and give that position back as soon as it's safe to do so. The best way is to pull off the racing line on the next straight and slow a little so the other guy can pass you safely. Communicate on Teamspeak so everyone knows what you're doing.New Starters Checklist - Mandatory steps
