Post New Flat League Rules
Flat League Guidelines

General

Clones : No full brothers or sisters are allowed. These will be treated as clones and removed from your stable

Age : Horse must be a year older than the previous season. eg if 3 last season must be 4 this season, if 3 two seasons ago it must be 5 this season.

Name : Horses must have a different name to horses you have previously uploaded, else they won't be accepted

Mid Season uploads - after week 5 and before week 6. You will be allowed to upload new horses. You will be able to retire a max of 5 horses and you can upload as many horses as you want up to the max stable size ( 25 for flat and 30 for NH )

Exporting Horse Files - All Exported Horses for the league MUST be Reset before exporting and Uploading to Tom in your CK Go to Your Horses highlight the Rating line and Click. Box will appear in the Box Type 975 and press enter this will change the rating to all Horses to 75.

No as I understand it. We have all been there breeding with the same stock.

The whole 'clone' issue is nonsense. I accidentally bred a pair the same and they turned out totally different. Different bars, different racing styles. The clone thing is a red herring. The TTF regenereation thing, winning a Derby in the year 2048 and then rematerializing in 'another save' in 2025 and breeding with your ancestors is far worse than having a full brother/sister.

Actually if you read any of the threads on bars/breeding you will see that everyone knows the clone thing is nonsense. You do not get an exact replica of bars from the mare or the stallion in any coupling. So why on earth should coupling the same two again produce the same results again. Answer is - its doesn't. Maybe the flat earth society made the rules up !

It has more to do with people hacking to create two of exactly the same horse, as I understand it.

That makes sense but I guess if someone had the ability to hack they would also know how to change the names of the parentage so who would know. But lets not open up that can of worms !!

As for TTF it is what it is and those of us that don't like it have to live with it. As it is available to all its not an unfair advantage and that's all there really is to say about it.

Still a yes I am afraid. I had a top class chaser who I had to ditch last season as he shared lineage with ‘In Estate of Madness’ both were likely G1 class. Same horse will likely miss again as ‘In Estate’ is down to return right now. There are a load more in my export bin who have the same issue.

No it doesn't but Leon was running the League and Brothers and Sisters was also Banned and no one ever said anything about it as at the time because of the problems with Hexing Names and I couldn't tell if you hexed the horse file if you could alter the bit a that changes the sex of the horse file so I think that is why I have thrown many horses out of my league team over seasons so I spread my breeding about more so not to get to many same parents.

Not sure some of the newer guys realise how bad the Hexing was, one of the reasons I stopped playing years ago. The introduction of this the main reason I came back. As I remember I'm sure you could change the sex of the horse too, and age.

Do you mean unraced horses or just maidens. Makes quite a difference ... and does this apply to NH as well ?
