Sixth

Join in the online soaring fun by:

Joining the Beverley Condor mailing list to get involved in the club contest: http://beverley-soaring.org.au/mailman/listinfo/condor_beverley-soaring.org.au

The mailing list is where we distribute most of the information - highly recommended.

Check out the official Condor Server List: https://www.condorsoaring.com/serverlist/ - this will show servers ready for you to connect. 

When it comes to connecting to the server, there is a list of running servers at the link above. I recommend bookmarking it. On that list there are [JOIN] buttons next to each server.

When you click the [JOIN] button, condor should start and bring up the multiplayer screen with the "CONNECT TO" Host address already filled in.

If there's a password, enter that and click [join] 

If the host address is empty (it happens) then close condor and click on the [JOIN] button on the server list webpage again.

 

Scan the Condor Soaring Online Forums: https://www.condorsoaring.com/forums/

Setting up Voice Comms

Not mandatory but highly recommended when flying in a group!

Condor 2 tasks use Discord

Head on over to https://discordapp.com/download and get a copy of the Discord App for your type and style of PC/Mac/Monster. For windows you will need Win7 or higher.

Our Discord Server for Beverley and WA pilots is called soaring-aus-wa - we'll send invitation links to the channel as required via the mailing list or join from here:

 

Once you're in the server, there will be one or more voice channels (probably called General) - click on the name of the voice channel to get connected. If you need to change your audio device or want to set up a push-to-talk, click on the gear icon next to your name in the bottom-left and find "voice and video settings" - adjust until you're happy.
