Title: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: Phil.8 on May 03, 2018, 02:52:01 PM
I am running fun runs for another 2 weeks or so after tonights run. I am liking exploring a lot of the cars we never use, even if some are not historic, there is a lot of cars in AC  I have never driven before.

If anyone has an idea for a season let me know, maybe one of the cars we run in these fun runs even, I am curious about next weeks run :-X

Just for something different, what about historic sports cars such as:


F40
Countach
Old Porsche 911
Miura


Cars of that ilk.

I am working out one or 2 more fun run format weeks and was wondering where the link to this is and how big is it, if its too big for my crappy mobile data at the moment I will run it week after next and do something next week that requires no download.

Presuming it is too big for me to download does anyone have any requests of something kunos or something I am likely to have

I would really like to use the Group 5 mod and leave the track selection open to suggestions from the drivers.

I would be happy to put a season together if that is what people would prefer.

Group 5 gen 4 cars.   6 week season.

Except for the Grand Final, no car to be driven twice.  :)

x*races of x*mins\laps   (One idea, two quite short races using ACs inbuilt reverse grid second race. Then a longer third race)

25,20,16,13,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,1,1,1,1... Points  :)

No separate Qualifying, that is one long Practice session serves as Qualifying also.  :D

Last race winner takes all, driver's choice of car.

Three Trophies, overall points winner, car model that scored the most points and Grand champion, being the winner of the Grand Final.

As for Tracks. anything with at least one straight where these cars can stretch their legs.

Another idea, it doesn't need to be six consecutive weeks. We can break it up with Kunos friendly recruitment days and other 'Fun Runs' and 'Test Days'.

After I install that mod ,when AC is loading it gets to "Loading car metadata 100%", then sits there with a spinning circle forever.
Any ideas.
Only thing I can think of is I can't get AC to run unless I have "force 32 bit" ticked. Is this mod only programmed for 64bit?
Just remembered that after I installed the Formula 1 1975 mod  I had the same problem.
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: GzeroD on May 19, 2018, 06:38:35 PM
Sounds like you'll need to fix that 32bit switch as that should never be needed.
You also must use 'Content Manager', not that the mod is incompatible with the standard launcher it's just that 'Content Manager' is so bloody good it deserves the imperative. ;) Especially as the standard launcher is a steaming pile of proverbial. >:(

Double check you folder structure with the download.

You may need to delete the 'Assetto Corsa' folder from within your 'My Documents' folder, but that involves losing all your settings. >:(

That was not my intention, could you start from pits maybe ?
If we go straight from a "Practice Session" to a Race , how are starting grids slots allocated?

I suspect the 32 bit problem is my Windows installation as I also cannot get RF2 to run in 64 bit, but I can get lots of other programs to run in 64 bit so not sure how to fix it, and I don't want to do a new Windows install if I can avoid it.
Did delete the 'Assetto Corsa' folder from within your 'My Documents' folder, but that didnt fix it, but as mentioned in another post it gave my fps a big lift.

You can backup all your local steam files for each game so you don't lose all the downloaded tracks and cars. If you go the win reinstall route.

For the third race how about rolling reverse Championship order. First race would see us seeded by the rankings that Wally keeps, and from then on we will have results from each week so the starting order can be published even before the event.
That could work if people make a note of the two drivers below them in the standings, in case one is away. I could add a link to the results, next to the track selection for that week.

I was thinking that you have somehow ended up with a 32-bit Steam install or some setting that is forcing 32-bit versions to be downloaded. A re-install of Steam should be a lot less stressful than a Windows re-install. I admit I am on a 100mb, unlimited internet connection (Phil are you listening!!) so a re-install of even the whole of AC is not a big issue.
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: rooshooter on May 20, 2018, 05:50:21 PM
Steam uninstall/install is no big deal if you have backed ALL you local files for each steam game ( I did it without backing up, and lost 3  years worth of car and track downloads for AC :'( :'( :'(). Worth a try, would be sad to see you miss the next season GW.

 Wasn't the 32 bit thing but looks like I had too many cars installed (687) in the cars folder, so deleted 46 cars and it now works.
Might have to look at my tracks folder as its got 490 tracks.

I'd just move them all to another folder and then copy the ones you think are worth using back into the main track and car folders (all KS tracks and cars of course). I did that and haven't found too many tracks I am missing and most of those I needed a new version of anyway.

Yep, good idea, I did that with RF2 and found the game loaded much quicker too.
 I have this bad habit of downloading and installing every mod and track that appears on Racefactor , then only trying about 15% of them.

Agreed. It is a good track but when I tried it I needed to really nurse even the BMW GR.5 around the twisty track. Not fun at all.

Zolder67 is fantastic in these cars. It is interesting that the modern Zolder on the other hand is horrible in these cars. Good example of how tracks have changed to match advances in race car tech.

Hope we can run the 1966 CanAm season again, the real season run for six races in September to November.
So between then and now we could run one or two Kunos only and public fun runs and then another series of some kind ? ? ?

OTTOMH, Forma Easter, There's a variety of these, run a different one each week, on obscure Eastern Block tracks.

I was thinking, but hadn't acted on, prepping the BAC Mono to run with the Kunos KTM. I think the KTM will get a run on Tuesday some time. Fingers crossed I can get the BAC up to Tuesdays standards. :P

I like the F40 Competizione and also have the 288 GTO evoluzione, The F40's progenitor. They could run together say, in a Father Son event. :o

2101 and 2105 use the same physics and both can be found at Race Department.

2106 whilst the newer car is an older mod and will require me to bring it in line with the above.
Much like last seasons' 1600s I'll make the 2106 a car for slower drivers.

*Turns out the model has too many polys.

Tracks all need vetting and I'm doing that now. Will post links soon so others can help.
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: rooshooter on October 21, 2018, 02:39:32 PM
Not sure we need a faster car for the slower drivers with this mod Seanus, last Thursday it was very difficult for Phil or Bacchulum to get past other drivers , I think the racing is very close as is and a faster car may unbalance this, just my 2cents worth.
I was thinking of using the same tracks to make it easier for the people who do not have time to practice but I am always happy to try new tracks and will also test.
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: Wally on October 21, 2018, 04:08:06 PM
I agree with Roo re the cars. The racing was very close in the one Lada, and last season the 1600's were a bit too much faster, unbalancing the field.

Post by: rooshooter on October 22, 2018, 10:23:21 AM
I also prefer the Lada.

To be very honest I was looking forward to a nice easy season with a lot of close racing at tracks we already know (and a great selection of tracks they are :)). This way it makes for close racing from the first race as all drivers will (in most cases) already know the track. Last Thursday  it was  great to see Rob at the pointy end of a race fending off challenges from the faster drivers, what more could  we hope for  from a Flattops Thursday Series.

I really think we should give the Ladas a season first, they have  proven to give the results we are after and do a season later in the Sprite, which I also like very much.

Seanus do you have issues with this car?
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: GzeroD on October 22, 2018, 10:42:05 PM
The Sprite? No I haven't given it a spin yet.
I did have my own conversion, but others do a much better with the 3D part, as I seem to baulk at learning how to so it myself.  :-[

The 2101 and the 2105 should be included, having the same physics.  ;D

If we're all cool with your suggestion Roo' then so am I.  ;)
'cept I would drop some tracks because of quality and/or season length, as it is with including the fun runs some seasons end up 10 weeks long.

While searching for a particular track, I came across a google drive link from here:
http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=2447.0 (http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=2447.0)

On this drive, is a nice little collection of vintage Aussie cars:
'77 Torana
'73 Monaro
'68 Monaro
'71 XY Falcon
'72 XA Falcon
'72 Charger
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JfalObPQH3g005B2KFYLW_lAJ7vKv9tB (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JfalObPQH3g005B2KFYLW_lAJ7vKv9tB)

They seem to all have the same setup options (I haven't driven the Monaro's) but slightly different power/weight ratios.
It could be a basic mod with a lot of "bog" (to keep an automotive metaphor) but it made me think of Thursday's. 8)

If anyone wants to work out a season with all the links and info and write it up please do, I will set it up on the server.
  I am currently having all my time taken up with going into a partnership with a mate of mine who runs a very profitable pizza shop,  $5000 a week for 16 hours opened, but he can never get away from it for breaks, so we are going into a partnership that will benefit him with time off and me with something to do, Its not about the money for me, just a bit of fun :)  I actually have worked there for a while for something to do ( being retired reasonably young you can run out of things to do :) ) on Sundays on the ovens and I fill in when he needs someone but I am slow making the pizzas :) need practice, so now I am now learning the fine art of making pizza and I have no time. And as we open on Thursdays I am not sure how long I can keep doing Thursdays for, but we are still working things out and I hope not to work Thursdays as I love my Thursday racing

By the weekend I'll have three options ready.
They'll be:
A season in the Buick and Pontiac, Ovals and their RC versions.
Special event, Indy '52
Special event, Race of Two Worlds.

How about this?

Do a season in the Nascars then use 'Special events' as lead ins to other seasons.

I can make up quite a few special events such as above and 'Nothing but the Cobra' etc.

For you consideration. Flyin' Miata / V8 Roadster

(http://xgn.com.au/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=2239.0;attach=1886)

I'm hoping I got everything pretty close to reality. Tad extra weight, that wing gives a bit of anti-lift rather than any real downforce. Ever so slightly wider tyres but still the same type. Turns out even with a bloody great Chev in the front the weight distribution stays the same! Must be a neat weapon in real life.
