Provisional starting order:

1574353272321.png


Before anyone starts moaning, here's how we do this order:
  1. Reverse order of drivers who have at least finished 1 race
  2. Drivers who have have never finished a race, non-reversed

First time I'm far back at reverse grids, hehehe :)

I don't like rain, so I'll expect to drop down the order by a lot.... :eek:

no sync to race with weather?!
Due to the race being a bit longer we decided it was okay to use real time. It'll also add another layer of randomness and the question of the track ever getting dry enough for dry tyres. The 3rd slot of Clear is just to make sure it doesn't start raining towards the end again

Yes, thx I was wandering why that 3rd slot. Personally, never experienced repeating of weather slots.

Its just 4 slot to weather but with speeding up time its just got complicated and every aspec you wanna reach in finnal weather needed to test for sure, there are a bunch of combinations of weather, just the 2-3h long race or longer lenght can you see the system's deficiency. One of the best part of Project cars 1/2, i think, with the day-night cycle, there is nothing like that. Maybe AC got some mods for night and rain, but thats not the same.

Well I did endurance races, 2.4h and with 10x time accelerated and first slot never stated again. But this choice is ok, makes sense anyway.

Pit-Entry
For Sakitto we decided that the driver can use the second pit entry (blocked by the cones). The game will not penalize you for taking this entry.
We ask every driver who is going to pit to flash their lights on the straight just before the left hander to warn the driver behind him.

Thank you so much for this... the "real" pit entry would've been gruesome :oops:


Also: one pit won't be enough. This race is going to be pure madness and fun. :love: Although I'm not quite sure how anyone is going to survive the first big puddle o_O


Problemes is not spin but for me its the understeering :/
yea the understeering is hard, I think one just has to practice a lot..

on the other hand I finally got my TC settings right; I didn't spin once in 52 laps. 10% for the Lambo :p

It may even work. But last time there was a few pit entry speeding penalty in race and parctice sessions too.
That cones can cause a bit dmg in front if u got the chance to roll over.
