@Neil-Marvin Welcome to the UHL! Like @DJ-Miller said, Discord is the best way to communicate with us. Much easier to talk all things hydros and others, and usually there are people online that would be around to run some practice laps or some heats as well. That'll also be a good place for any questions you have.
I look forward to racing with you!
We have monthly exhibitions going on at the moment as you can go to the leagues page to check it out and sign up if you want. We also have a discord channel where you can chat with us about the game and everything hydroplane related. Our signature season, the Saturday Night Hydro League, takes place in the winter time where the racing gets real competitive!
You can join our discord channel and there will most likely be somebody who can race with you. If you want to jump on the UHL server in game, type in 'Uhlhydroplanes.com' in the server box to join the server that we use to race
@DW-ANDREWS This past season we all had to use boats from the Master Hull Roster, and limited it to 2 boats per number. In future seasons I don't know if fantasy boats will be allowed, that's still being discussed. We've also limited people to 2 fantasy numbers per driver.
@ThibodauxRacing Its a little complex. First, plug the controller into the computer. Windows will recognize the controller as a gaming controller. From there you can test the buttons and axes (ie triggers and joysticks) and get an idea of how to map them out. For simplicity, I would recommend this sequence while mapping a controller:
Joystick 1 is what my computer calls my controller. if you double click the area under the primary column, next to the desired input and press or move an input, it will tell the game to use that controller movement for the specific game function.
