S22 Car Poll - Open Wheelers
« on: April 15, 2018, 11:34:25 AM »
The next season will be an open wheeler season, with a choice of the Ferrari F2004 or cars from the F1 1975 mod, which you can download here (730 MB). The release notes for the mod describe how you have to copy some AC files into the mod, from the Lotus 72D and Ferrari 312T (which require DLC).

You can choose both options if you don't care which one we drive.

We'll have some upcoming trial races in both options.

Ferrari F2004
The car that took Michael Schumacher to the 2004 F1 championship. It has no DRS or KERS, and is relatively easy and stable to drive. This is the fastest car in the AC stable.

F1 1975
Nicki Lauda, James Hunt... these cars drift a lot more, are a little harder to drive and are arguably more fun. The mod has many different cars of the 1975 season to choose from.

Format
Either choice will be a 1 hr race, pit stops for fuel and tyres open.

As long as Verstappen does not join...

Jokes aside: I prefer to stick with official content, plus we already had a 1970s F1 season, so the F2004 would be a very nice novelty. I am for it.

It was my (mis)understanding that Tuesdays were a 'mod' free zone also?

Did a few races with Raceonoz with the F2004 and have to say it was not my favorite. Could never get the front working as it should.

 So my vote is for the old school, even if its a mod.

In general, yes, but we did a Formula Renault season. This is a good quality mod.

This is a conversion of F1 7 Crew for F1C and that makes it nigh on 15 years old!

Anyway I still don't mind it myself but, if we run it please let me fix the many errors I have already found.

Sure, have at it and I'll put up another link. What do these errors generally affect? Is it visual? Performance optimisations? I wouldn't want to have the physics in general significantly altered.

Physics wise nothing will change that affects the cars, but I couldn't live with the fact that the soft and hard compound had different radii.
All cars ran the same Goodyears and some of the models need their wheels/tyres scaled to match this.
LODs need doing. To be fair the models are so low poly that lack of LODs may be forgivable in this case.
Shift lights.
Add the MAKI.

And other bits and pieces as I come across them.

Ok. I'll aim to have a trial run in these in 2 weeks time, i.e after Caterham and F2004.

Cool, that'll give me an average of one car per day, and as I just finished the Brabham this morning I should be able to make that.

You sure you want to do it? It's quite a large investment... non fare colpi di testa avventati ;)

If you really don't want to buy the Ferrari, you can always hire Cambridge Analytica to get their Russian contacts to rig the voting so the '75 wins. ;)
But that may cost a bit more than $8. :-\
