Hi Wally, can you get me in-game no 40, the plain black one, please?
I should have my setup up and running again by the start of the series, worst case I'd miss out on race one.
See how we go.

Great to hear it was fun...such bad luck I couldn't join...love this car. Gotta try it at Bathurst ;-)
I monitored the server lap times before. For sure that Andy would have been a challenge for kcender.
A season in this guy would be fantastic.
Something like that would probably get me into VR - talking about the PIMAX 5k/8k:
Just need a matching graphics card...should reduce the number of collisions as well.

Can I get a spot as well?
Looking forward to it :-)

I think its vastly different mindsets and styles, at the time I said to myself why didn't he back off and taken the corner tighter so there is no chance of us coming together, anyway that's what I would of done and probably lost a position, but we would both still be racing, not just take the corner as normal and drive merrily up the middle of the track, I play the game as its my car I don't want to dent or smash, I guess I have to accept not everyone plays like that
Mate, we were both going through this turn rather slowly. If you were able to watch the replay you would see the difference in speed between us in reference to I think it's Grat behind us. He was gaining big time there. That proves that I was not going full speed through this turn, but rather cautiously in order to give you space. My left wheels were on the kerb btw.
I understand it is useless discussing that with you as you have a different perception of what happened there and before at Okayama.
In this series there were 3 situations where you were running bluntly into the back of me. The way I see it, what you were doing at Okayama was pretty brutal.
I've certainly made mistakes myself during this series, but as far as I know or remember it were others suffering from that and not really you.
Btw. just a few laps before in this race we were going side by side through 3 or 4 turns without contact...yeah, what can I say...you do whatever you gotta do

Awesome!!! Would love to do that :-)
Got a steering wheel, but no motor, damn...send it off for an upgrade today
Probably 2 weeks no sim racing...

There are two sides to it imo.
It increases realism and I would think it makes people more cautious in general.
That's the good things about it.
The tricky bit is it includes contacts with fellow racers and based on the nature of this rule it affects both, the guy causing the incident and the guy who is just in the way, in the same way. It obviously is disappointing getting your race messed up and on top of that being slowed down for the next race.
I was on 35% after race 2 yesterday. Not 100% sure, but I would think the main contribution to this was Phil shooting me into Freezer...that's 2 impacts.
How about a compromise, what if you just half the restrictor? That way the effect is still there, but victims are punished a bit less...I know the restrictor will become less efficient that way...again, it's a compromise.
However, I do think it could be added on top of a speed restrictor imo.

if that was 100% my fault I give up racing you , you give no room ever and along with a few others I have learnt my lesson and will not race you anymore, if I see you near me I will pull over and let you go, as I do with Grat, unfortunately he decided to barge pass in the dipper thing b4 I could let him go this race, In hindsight I should of know better and let him past up the hill
hmm, did you watch the replay?
« on: February 07, 2018, 06:48:34 PM »
Qualy was a bit average. I've done a few 1:33.7's and 8's before, but somehow I didn't get it right yesterday although I actually did have a pretty clear track...no one but myself to blame.
So after gaining a couple of positions I was following Mael and Matthew at a close distance, but there's no opportunity to overtake. It was a good race for me anyway.
Shayne, sorry about what I've done to you there. I've got no recollection about this and tried watching it on replay, but race 1 didn't get auto-saved...no idea what happened.
Race two was a lot of fun...plenty of position changes and generally pretty clean racing.
Freezer, guess you read Wally's post...sorry, but not my fault. Looking at the replay it does look like it was my impact which sent you off.
Phil.8, sorry I was involved in you going off again. You were upset and blaming me over the radio. However, looking at the replay I have to say again, pretty much 100% your fault.
After your tussle with Grat you were coming out of the right hander at the bottom of the hill a bit slowly so going up the hill I was slightly ahead of you before the left-hand turn, but I was braking a tad earlier and more not being on the race line and in order to give you space on the outside of the track (you're welcome). So space for you was there, but you didn't use it and went too far towards the apex where I was. Sorry, but I gotta ask the question, what do you want me to do in situations like that?
Worth watching the replay imo...ideally the one at Okayama as well.
However, we've had some good side by side racing before in this race...was fun even though I lost that one :-)
In race 3 I was by myself most of the time. Managed to overtake Bacchulum pretty early and built up a gap.
It was good racing and I'm happy as Larry about finishing the series on 3...of course I know I'm not the 3rd fastest...lucky I guess.
At the beginning I didn't get too excited about this BMW 235i, but it grew on me a bit...was a fun series.
Thanks everyone and Wally for organizing this so well.

worst quality of racing I can remember at xgn, the tactics of some people are putting me right off Tuesday racesI've made two mistakes myself so I want to be cautious especially at this race. My apologies to Shayne again and I've done a stupid thing at the end of start finish straight...not sure but I think I didn't take anyone out there when I braked way too late...dunno why...apologies there too to the ones affected.
Phil8, you were complaining about the incident at the hairpin in race 1.
Strange, but it seemed you weren't aware of me being on the inside for quite a long time. The way I see it we were side by side. However you went for the apex, but the problem was that I was there. I've done many sharp turns there so I was prepared to go side by side through there. You crashed into me...your fault.
You may have watched replay in the meantime and have changed your mind about this one. Just surprised you went so aggressively for the apex.
Now, the other Phil, we were going side by side towards the hairpin and I was at the outside. That was race two. No idea why, but you suddenly pulled left and I was there at the edge of the track. I mean to overlook that and noticing the presence of someone there when getting a bit of a nudge is ok, but you kept pulling left as if you wanted to push me off track. That was roughly in the middle of this long straight. I had to aggressively steer right to avoid going off. What were you thinking?
Anyway races 2 and 3 were messed up.
Yeah, Wally I think we've had a bit of side by side action as well. I'm not worried about what happened there :-)
It was close and fun racing, but I'm disappointed about the result.
My qualy was bad...picked a bad time to exit the pits.

Think I qualify as a sim racing noob...600h total on AC, a bit GSC Extreme and the rest is WRC on PS quite a while ago.
So is this Guybrush an 'alien' then? I mean his server stats are pretty impressive.
When it comes to democracy, that's like in the real world, you vote and someone else decides.

That's a good idea and it makes it more interesting for the fast guys...instead of just cruising sometimes.
Or actually it affects the guys further back as well...it's a good thing and you can use it strategically to your advantage.
When it comes to creating close competition a ballast system based on position in the overall standings or based on the actual outcome of the previous race or races (which is reflected in the points you get) would be better though imo.
Doing the fastest lap in a race is a nice thing, but it has no direct affect on the championship and therefore I find it a bit inefficient compared to the other options available.
Just my opinion :-)
