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 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: Seanus 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. >:(

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 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: Seanus 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.

Just thinkin' out loud.

Shorter 4 week seasons, followed by one/two weeks of Kunos only recruitment/fun runs.
If a car proves to be a hit, such as the formula ford, we could include the next four week block into a now extended championship. Or we could make a note and promise ourselves to do another season sooner rather than later.

More championships, more cups, more prizes.  ;D

Lefoe Hillman Imp: (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xSB0zXKCbf06AsiuAFEw3zmFBT4lW795/view) Mostly complete, but needs feedback on the compromise between the maniacal thing that it must have been and the need to make it actually driveable for a full race.

Porsche 911 Camel Turbo: (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v4Cf8l8gPw_343pSUhf7JFddZoZmmnbB/view) Mostly complete and who knows even Bacchulum might drive this as the engine is in the right place.


This sounds interesting , not having tested any of them yet ,  will they have decent setup options to at least correct any horrid toe and camber issues these types of cars always seem to have ?   I usually try to stay away from older tin tops as in my mind correctly or incorrectly I am 100% positive that those racing these cars in their hay day would of been able to change alot more things in the setup than what we are normally given options for in AC.
Torana GTR XU1 620 Repco: Near complete

Valiant Charger Repco: Mostly complete but needs a volunteer for the skin(s)


Tracks I'm not so sure on, I would think Australian but then I don't like most of them for varying reason.
Any other theme that would suit the above carset?
I'll add the missing cars shortly.

Toe, Camber and a little bit of ride height(for Rake) will be the only things adjustable. See the latest iteration of the Lefoe for the direction I'm going in.

The 911 does feel decent.
Do you know how they mid-engined it?
My dad and a mate mid-engined a Beetle for rallying, about 73-74.
They basically flipped the engine/gearbox over the axle into the where the rear seat was, then spun the engine to the gearbox (so it wasn't upside down).
They then reversed the gearbox internals, so it didn't have 4 reverse gears. ;)
I wonder if they were inspired? ???
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: Seanus on June 13, 2020, 01:47:17 PM
Whole thing's a bespoke tubular chassis with 908 running gear, once you turn the motor around all you need to do is flip the diff left to right.

Do you think the spring frequencies and damper rates are in a good spot for such a car? I'd like to keep them fixed or with a tiny amount of range just to tip the balance one way or the other. Which way the wheels point I've left wide open.
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: Bacchulum on June 13, 2020, 02:24:38 PM
I've done a quick setup for each car, at Philip Island, they could be more refined over time.
I managed to get the values I was after with what was available, the exception being the XU1 rear (but if you can't change it, you work around it).
Each car definitely has it's own "feel" and needs to be driven accordingly, which is nice.
They are certainly a challenge to drive. ;D
Title: Re: Thursdays next season ideas
Post by: Bacchulum on June 14, 2020, 02:58:00 PM
Shifted testing to Willow Springs and noticed something in the Imp.
Crew chief is reporting locking right front while I'm accelerating.
I believe it's when the lifted, inside front re-lands but it gives a noticeable pull when it does.
Not sure if this is intentional or the wheel inertier is a bit high. ???

Bump, see post above (http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=2239.msg53427#msg53427).

Dated tomorrow but uploaded today the Valiant gets a lot more camber compensation at the rear. Previously the Hillman received De-Dion rear suspension. And the other two seemed to be quite good out of the box.

First time I've used Camber Extravaganza and noted that as well as giving a delta to 'ideal' camber it can also be used as a guide for rollbar stiffness.
If the outside wheel has gone into positive camber but CC still recommends adding more positive camber then the car has rolled too much and you need to stiffen that end.   :o :o

And it is a bit of poetic license that I have left the engine exposed lest they would be covered with a slab of badly textured aluminium sheeting. (Motherfucking spellcheck tried to correct me on that spelling!)

Brabham LODs and default setup done. Final less bugs and collider. see above for today's upload.

Lotus. Final less bugs.
McLaren. Final less bugs.
Eagle. Final less LODs and bugs.

All of the above subject to change.
I tested them pre-this @ Glenford.
All very close except the Lotus around 0.4s down, to be expected given engine capacity.
Setup ranges seem good ie., let me get what I want. 8)

Looks awesome Seanus.  HQ racing around Aussie tracks sounds great!  Could include Barbagello in your list of prospective tracks https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/barbagallo-raceway.4407/

Has this been done before and is it of interest ?

Not sure yet, got over a month to sort it out 

For the car/cars hopefully some older rally car preferably, but might have to go modern car if they don't cut it compared to a modern rally x car

Have had a quick look and there is a few mods tracks so hopefully they are fun to drive.  I've found that the more open tracks tend to be more fun than the tight and twisty tracks.

Will be more like fun runs than a proper season , do a couple of weeks and if its well received then do a couple more .

My Sons girlfriend got me playing some rally x on PC2 and was quite fun so curious as to how it would be in AC.

Yes there will be a bit of contact no doubt.  8)

Just a couple of fun runs for something different. I'm going to test it out tonight see how AC handles rallyx tracks apparently I read somewhere that AC doesn't actually model gravel roads properly its just gives them less grip.
