I checked www.airracing.com (http://www.airracing.com) and it says under construction. I checked www.airracer.com (http://www.airracer.com) and nothing. Where exactly do I find the rules for this server? I had no idea I had to search the internet to read the rules for a server in order to fly in it. All I wanted to do was try racing, fly the course and get use to it before a race. Thought it might be fun.

Main site ---> www.il2airracing.com (http://www.il2airracing.com)

Forums ---> http://www.tbssquad.com/forum/index.php?act=idx

Basic rules are: don't shoot people, don't be an idiot, don't swear, and race the track. There are various rules about the actual races themselves, and to race in the league you need to be registered with a race number. Register on the main site and read the full rules here (http://www.il2airracing.com/?page=racing/rules.html).

Racing is a helluva lotta fun (although I haven't participated for a while) and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Thanks
When I logged in the notepad said something about scorekick and some stuff about large enough areas for bombers. It said some tracks werent made for jets but nothing about not flying them. There is no info about a web page. I was kicked several times but didnt know why untill I was told I was not following the rules. When I asked what rules (other than the noted log-in page), I was told to read them on the web page. I guess I kept writting down the address wrong. Anyway, then I get into a P-47 and start taxing out and was told I was in the wrong plane and that I MUST fly a Ki-84.
I guess I will just pass on that server, just too much to be fun.

Well, they are quite strict mainly due to a lot of idiots coming on and totally disregarding the poit of the server and proceeding to shoot everyone down, and blow everything up, and all sorts of stuff. So they are strict, but some do get a little anal about it.

As for "you must fly this aircraft". That is because when racing, they declare the type of aircraft you fly. They will have generally 6 races in a "meet" and the plane types are usually declared before hand on the website, along with the race map that will be used. You could fly a P-40E in the 1st race, then a He-162 the next, then a P-11c in the next race, then a He-111 in the next, and so on.

There are also "open" races where you can choose what aircraft you want to fly. Although most of the time these are restricted to 3 or 4 certain types that you can fly. Again this will be normally be declared before the race begins.

On the IL2 racing server, it is usually up all the time, and the map is periodically changed around. The server is there for practice purposes, it's that simple. So normally the guys who are there are there to practice the race maps and the aircraft for the "meet".

But read the rules, and register and stuff, and then turn up on Friday or Saturday and race. I gaurantee it is a lotta fun!! Specially if you've got 2 or 3 buddies on comms with you.

Oh yeah, scorekick, that was put in to get rid of these idiots who come in and trash the place. If you get more than a certain amount of minus points (coz you've killed a bunch of stuff) then you get kicked off. That's it.
