    Hello - this is NOT an option for Cross country format and we wont be adding this feature. I try to stick with the FIA/FIM standards so we dont add a bunch to strange things to the software.

    Thanks!

    Anyone else having serious latency issues? The program is just running incredibly slow, freezing, not loading new terrain, not allowing placement of new points, indicators etc. Internet speed isn't the issue as you can see from the pictures. I've been stuck loading for probably over five minutes half a dozen times.

    Hi:

    Anytime you’re having performance problems, I suggest trying the following steps. This typically cleans up any bad behavior.

    Give it a try and let me know how goes.

    Thanks Mike

    Made it better for about 10 minutes, back to freezing and waiting.

    sorry for slow reply. Did you get this performance bug sorted out?

    Anybody else having similar trouble?

    Nope, cleared the cache multiple times, logged out, etc. It works for a few minutes and then just drags. It never fully freezes but it will go five minutes or more before catching back up.

    Hey Mike,

    Are there any plans for expanding the TSD functionalities to allow for some "non-standard" timing?

    For example, here in Quebec, we set the target average speeds to be 10% below the speed limit. So if the speed limit is 70 km/h, the target avg. speed is 63 km/h. Any plans for adding functionalities that would allow for this?

    We also use "elapsed time" segments which, in a way, are like transits, where the competitors are allowed a specific amount of time to get to the end of the segment without having to maintain a constant average speed. No time controls are allowed within these segments (though one can be present at its beginning and/or its end).
    For context, we generally use these in quiet zones, when travelling through towns or when travelling on numbered roads, like provincial roads or highways.

    Another thing is that our local TSD rules stipulate that all time controls are to be set up at the whole minute locations (i.e. target time is always at 0 seconds). In order to accommodate this requirement, we sometimes have to get a bit creative, especially when there are no "elapsed time" segments between time controls and where suitable locations for TCs are limited. In such cases, we will generally throw in a "pause for x seconds" instruction somewhere within an average speed segment, which, besides confusing the hell out of the competitors, also allows us to synchronize their next TC target time to a whole minute.

    Finally, since we like to be different, we also use a slightly different scoring method.
    We use two types of time controls:
    1. to the minute:
      • 1pt per minute early
        ex.: for a target time of 06:00:00
        • 05:59:00 to 05:59:59 = 1 pt (1x 1)
        • 05:58:00 to 05:58:59 = 2 pts (2x 1)
        • etc.
      • 0.5pts per minute late (starting at the next minute following the target time)
        ex.: for a target time of 06:00:00
        • 6:00:00 to 6:00:59 = 0 pts
        • 6:01:00 to 6:01:59 = 0.5 pts (1x 0.5)
        • 6:02:00 to 6:02:59 = 1 pt (2x 0.5)
        • etc.
    2. to the 1/10th of the minute
      • 0.1pt per 6 seconds (1/10th of minute) early
        ex.: for a target time of 06:00:00
        • 05:59:54 to 05:59:59 = 0.1pt (1x 0.1)
        • 05:59:48 to 05:59:53 = 0.2pts (2x 0.1)
          ...
        • 05:59:00 to 05:59:05 = 1.0 pts (10x 0.1)
        • etc.
      • 0.05pts per 6 seconds (1/10th of minute) late (starting at the 6th second from the target time)
        ex.: for a target time of 06:00:00
        • 06:00:00 to 06:00:05 = 0pts
        • 06:00:06 to 06:00:11 = 0.05pts (1x 0.05)
        • 06:00:12 to 06:00:17 = 0.1pts (2x 0.05)
          ...
        • 06:01:00 to 06:01:05 = 0.5pts (10x 0.05)
        • etc.


    Thanks,

    Cez:

    Thanks for message.

    It seems Time Speed Distance rally organizers like to do things in many different ways. It’s hard to create software that addresses all of these needs and scenarios.

    Take a look at the Rally Navigator Time Speed Distance page for more info.

    In the pipeline: I am working on a feature to assign and calculate time controls at ANY distance along the roadbook, not just at Waypoints as it is currently. This should allow you more flexibility in your event planning.

    The Time Speed Distance Excel worksheet is fully editable, so if you want to tweak formulas on the Excel sheet - Go for it.

    Time Control Calculation Worksheet

    Enter Stage Name, Roadbook Name, Starting Time and Interval, Car Number, Create Time Variation and Points Scoring

    Then, Duplicate this Sheet in Excel for the EACH Time Control

    In EACH Excel Sheet, Enter Waypoint # of Time Control, Time Control #, Time of Day at Time Control Arrival

    Points are Automatically Calculated​

    You could also change your format slightly to work best with Rally Navigator features and save extra Excel work.

    Thanks for supporting Rally Navigator.
