I can't get this to work :'( . Exactly where do you drag and drop pit-mod files to ? I still am getting unavailable content on server list :'(
I can't remember - you need to see what folder is at the top level of the zip file, and drag that onto the same place. E.g. if the zip starts at ks_highlands, drag that into your tracks folder.

It just felt good around here, being gentle on the throttle, upshifting early when exiting corners, entering the hairpins very slowly.


Sorry about the lap 1 wobble in front of you Seanus. It almost turned into a baby tankslapper there.

Thanks guys. I had extra model files on the server from a track mod I have which adds traffic to Highlands.

Got rid of the model files on the server and restarted it. Please try again (I haven't checked it myself).

What's a good lap time for this track?
We'll see when people put some laps in on the practice server:


http://52.63.217.129:50041/lapstat?currservers=acserver2
I just tried to do that but got a strange crash. :-\
Where it normally says "loading....(car x, track, etc)", it said "problems during checksum" then a window with "game crashed". :(

I just joined OK and put a few laps in. Can anyone else confirm if this is or isn't working for them?

I want to remind everyone of this rule:

Turn 1 Racing Etiquette
To avoid turn 1 incidents, in turns 1 and 2 of the opening lap, stay on your side of the track, i.e. leave racing room for the cars around you. Don't close up the gap by cutting acorss to the apex on the other side of the track. All cars will come through safely this way without big pileups.

I'll check the server tonight.

Everyone needs to calm down, take a deep breath and get their emotions in check. I am looking at the situation. I don't care who's driving what car. I am making a judgement call as to who might have made an avoidable mistake that impacts someone else badly. Nobody likes to be sent to the back of the field on the opening lap, due to no fault of their own, after all that practice and qualifying; that's what we're all trying to avoid.


As to "caving", I am representing "community standards" and adjusting my decision accordingly.

It seems I'm in the wrong here :)
It's good to hear "community views".
After trial by a jury of peers, it seems I have to award Godzilla a penalty of 50kg after all, for failing to stay on his side of the track in the opening corners.


But the impact with Russ I still see as not Godzilla's fault. Watch the replay again - Godzilla is just driving in a straight line near the edge of the track, not deviating left, when Russ rejoins from off-track and clips him in the rear side. It is always the responsibility of the off-track car to rejoin safely.

how long for an enduro is good for Thursdays,  35, 40 mins ?
I'm easy with any duration. The only thing to watch out for is that in a smaller field, the cars tend to get quite spread out in longer races.

It could conceivably be a problem with the pit mod. We'll see if anybody else gets the problem.

Race 2 Video Review

Here's the start of race 2, focussing on Godzilla's orange and white car. Godzilla ends up with Joe's blue car to the left. A little later, you see RussG's white car re-entering the track from the left and clipping Godzilla.

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/YRTY-TDJRQg?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Here's my take on it. There's not much in the Godzilla/Joe impact. I always cut a lot of slack for drivers in side-to-side impacts because you can't see the other car at all. In this instance, Godzilla could have shown more awareness that there may be a car to the left, but he may not even be aware that there was a car alongside him.

Suggestion for Godzilla - if you're not already running the Helicorsa app, you should be, to get a graphic warning that someone's alongside you.

In the Godzilla/RussG contact, Godzilla is just driving on his line when Russ re-enters from off-track into the rear side of Godzilla, again out of view of Godzilla.

So I stick with my original opinion - racing incidents.

Which Highlands we doing? The short one should be a blast!
The intermediate one. The short one is just around the town. I wanted another high speed track on the schedule.

Race 2
  • Godzilla bumped the side of Joe, but given that they were side by side for some time and Godzilla had no real visibility of Joe’s car, this is a racing incident.
  • RussG was off track and clipped the side of Godzilla’s car while re-entering, and then clipped JamieP’s car while correcting – racing incident (while RussG could have re-entered more safely, he was really the only car

Sorry Wally. I must disagree with you here on pretty much every point.
I agree with Joe. Godzilla turned in on him causing the carnage. Yes they were side by side for some time, so all the more reason that Godzilla should have been aware not to turn in.
Then ... the only reason I was off track was to avoid crashing into the recovering Godzilla, but the recovering Godzilla thought it best to go straight to the apex when I was there just trying not to hit him. Who was re-entering? ???
The tap I got there unsettled my car which meant JamieP had no chance to avoid me and clipped me which sent me into the wall.
I rejoined last again ... with big damage again ...
I won't comment without looking at the replay again, as the whole start was complex, with Seanus not starting off the line and bottling up the field which then went up the hill. It might be a good point of discussion in the video thread. I'll put up a video tonight.
