OVGT3S5 is our weekly GT3 racing series in its fifth iteration in Vadim Kogay's OVGT3 Experience organised by Vadim Kogay.

You can download the game at the wiki page or on the OVGT3S5 Google Doc.

If you want to join, please sign up and keep an eye on the Google Document for more information.

How Do I Connect to the Server?[edit]

Connecting to vkovgt3.jpg

Right click AMS.exe and click Create Shortcut. Right click the shortcut and add the highlighted line in the image to the right after AMS.exe in the Target line. Using this shortcut will launch the game and bring you to the car select screen for the server. If you want to do things such as changing sound or graphics options, launch the game with the normal AMS.exe.

Recommended Less Complicated Method[edit]

Launch the game with AMS.exe. Hit the Multiplayer button, and then the green + at the top right. Enter the IP in the image to the right (port number shouldn't be needed) and hit OK. Click the server and join with the button on the bottom right. The IP will be saved so you can join the server this way from that point on.

Restart Procedure[edit]

Race will be restarted if needed.

Car Choice[edit]

No limits. Pick whatever car you want and feel free to change cars every round.

Rules[edit]

Two races, 30 minutes each. Reverse grid race 2. Random time of day with time scaled 24x. For example, if the race starts at 1:40AM, the time of day will end with the race at about 1:40PM.

Bind a button to turn your headlights on/off. If you don't have your headlights on if the race goes to night, you will get disqualified. If you have a potato computer, go to your [username].PLR file located in USERDATA\[yourname]\ and change the line Max Headlights= to 3.

Don't drive like an idiot, and pay attention to the flags.

Don't flip Marko Tulska. Unless it's Flip Marko Tulska Day or if flipping him would be really funny.

Track Limits[edit]

Feel free to run wide on corner entry/exit up to 17 times (past 17 off tracks warnings from the game, you will receive a drive-through penalty), just expect to be called a faggot and insulted in public especially if you wreck someone because of it.

Skins Guideline[edit]

As usual, you can make your own livery if you like. Skin Templates and the email to which you send it to are in a link on the Google Document.

In your .veh file: ("QUOTATION" MARKS ARE NEEDED FOR ANY LINE YOU ENTER)

Set your Default Livery= line to [the name of your .dds].dds

Set your Classes= line to Classes="EECGT3"

Set your Team= line to Team="[yourname or yourteamname reccomended for neater sorting]"

Set your Driver1= line to Driver1="[your name is reccomended for neater sorting]"

Set your FullTeamName= line to FullTeamName="[whatever you put in the Team= line]"

Set your Category= line to Category="OVGT3"

Do not write anything in the lines from TeamFounded to TeamWorldChampionships, your game will(might?) crash.

Please .zip your files before emailing them.

Skin submission deadline is 24 hours before the start of the race.

If you need help, please refer to the RFactor Skinning guide.

You can get the "official" OVG numberplate here

FAQ[edit]

- Presence on Mumble is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.

- While the series is open for anyone to join, please practice until you feel comfortable around the track before joining the race.

- These cars use varying amounts of ABS and TCS in real life. Do not be ashamed to activate them if you are struggling.
