      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    It's easy. First set the time, then decide if you want TWA or heading by closing the lock (TWA) or left it open (Heading). Then set desired TWA/Heading. Repeat for every programmation point you want to set up.

    03:30, 09:30, 15:30, 21:30 GMT It takes about one hour and a half to complete.
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm 111 overall. I still have to understand how the hell does VR calculate the leaderboard. Anyway, I must improve in regularity terms.
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Come on Dee !!! Although being spaniard, you deserve to finish in front of us.
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Final rank: 746 th 6564.9 nm 20d, 01h, 05m, 15s It's been an exahusting leg. Looking forward for the overall SA ranking, hoping I could have saved my clothes. Congrats to the front runners.
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm flying all sheets availabe I managed to recover the lead after the mid Pacific front wall restart. I thought Vanuatu coast was the way to go but I had to rearrange my route. So well done for those who earlier chose Coral Sea as a winner route. There's no time now to fight for the front positions but I think I can consolidate my first place in the SA overall ranking. Fingers crossed.

    A whale ?? I'm really bored about this stupid rounded appoach. Strategy is no longer in place, everything can happen in the next two days. Lotto tickets on sale.

    Don't rely on Zezo's routing while it is downloading a new run data. It is mixing data from the current run and the last one 6 hours ago. Wait for the plus sign to disappear.

    If you decide to go east of Malaita you should make the call right now. The closer you get to the mark, the stronger shadow you will have to leeward. Just my opinion.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I choose west, I prefer to be to windward of Malaita.
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Honestly, I think the frigate should never be an option. I know this is only a game, but we all here (I think) try to do our best like in the real world, checking forecasts several times a day, using routing software, putting different strategies on top of the table, setting the alarm clock late at night, etc.. So a teleport does not sound a seamanship move to me.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Each time you ask for a route calculation on Zezo, a red point is shown at your current location. There's some people making some "artistic" work with it. I was tempted to draw the Anarchy logo
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Cyclone Gita is messing up all forecasts. This will be a really tricky approach.

    Some distinguished virtual sailors in contetion around here.
