"Not being offered a discount + unlimited cards", you mean?

It's not only you.

Same thing here could not buy unlimited cards. However, it appears you can now. I had this for the next two races. It seems the later you are to register, you then get the option. So for the Clipper race down to Panama I'm going to wait before I register

I believe you can not buy all the options in one...

I found that and more.

In the current Clipper Race still to finish for me, I spent +4000 credits fitting out my boat with all of the options and a nice livery. The +4000 credits were spent from my account ... and my boat only raced with a green paint job.

It took me several races to build up to +4000 credits only to see them disappear for no result.

Maybe worth checking again: I just signed up for the race, and have the choice of the 40% discount for full options - for 19.99 so I don't think I will pay.

Nope. Still no bonus. Maybe I've been naughty or VR wants to get rid of accumulated credits. I happen to have about 12500 of them.

Otherwise, 19.99 follows the usual pricing scheme where every VSR level is worth 4.99. The race is VSR 3.

The smaller the VSR, the higher the price, no? VSR4->14.99, VSR3->19.99, VSR2->24.99, so the formula looks rather like
price = -5xVSR + 35
Right?
Post by iconPost by BGSteMarine | 2018-04-19 | 19:07:33
Right, and as VR as adopted a supermarket technique, i woukd even say 34.99 - 5 * RaceLevel ;-)

Let's all play NMS and make Mr. VR sweat ....

Nice opposite to the pay-only race with/against Peyron

It seems that you've forfeited the bonus if you joined the race too soon. I get the bonus with a guest login but not with my regular user.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2018-04-13 | 21:45:27
My no money boat sees the bonus too. But it's just VSR 8 and got less than 5000 credits.

Perhaps only Foils + Light + Polish ?
What about a sheet with options boxes as for the NMS Group?
It's easy to extract the positions every few days?
Post by iconPost by Lasse | 2018-04-16 | 21:29:38
I didn't see the full pack option a few days ago (I have 10000+ worth of credits). But now I see it again.
Post by iconPost by GeGaX | 2018-04-16 | 21:39:44
There was a bugs... First, the FullPack did not appear for registrants... , then only for the guest mode and registered after the first bug was fixed but it was fixed this morning ;)
Post by iconPost by huditojo | 2018-04-17 | 12:55:09
Well, it did not appear a few days ago, spent my enormous legion of credits and THEN the fullpack appears...great...already equiped for this race...
Post by iconPost by Ursus Maritimus | 2018-04-17 | 21:32:53
except for the unlimited cards :p

@Spica31

> price = -5xVSR + 35

Levels are reversed behind the scene, so it's more like

(7-VSR) * 5

But it's the same thing when you do the math.

I still haven't got the full pack button, BTW. I was going to use the accumulated credits anyway, but it feels stupid not to have the choice.

Before the race the forecast was that most of the time we can expect light winds but we should expect near gale almost all the way. Base on forecasts decided not to take HG. Mistake, BIG mistake :(

Lights winds to all ;)

Looks like the field is starting to split into two groups. One group heading far south and one (my group) choosing a more direct route to the finish line. Maybe there will be a north group also after Palma.

Just realized that the real boats don't have to take the last Canary to starboard, so lame.

The real gate seems to be a bit North of La Palma
