Let me know of any errors or amendments you would like Roo.

Is that the final car download link ?  Should we limit it to 4 or 5 cars to make the size smaller or remove some that are really similar ? if could get it down to at least 10 or 12 I could then put 2 or each on the server, as it is now the test track for example only has 20 slots so I can only put one of each on the server

How will qualifying work for the 30 min race, just random? or a rolling start where we find out spots as usual from results of the previous race ?  I think that would be easiest and best :)  I don't have any fancy way like wally to set the grid from previous races and would take me ages manually

Car link need to add Ferrari Patch    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pcd-NKZq8OkrXIRjWbg3FU9rictQ4xqd/view

I did not realise Nords was in the list , sorry Seanus, but I do not believe in racing on a track that is almost impossible to memorise in a reasonable amount of time, that is not racing but playing Russian Roulette, imho, and about as far away from a fun event as you can get  ::) ::) ::) (rant finished). Feel free to disagree with me as I could just miss this round , if the majority want to race it ;D.

I would also like to add Oesterreichring 70s the last round please phil https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ars_dZAOa-tq8Bx6cS9iLzTs_t2A2O7s/view

We can try Seanus's idea of him reading out starting positions off the current Championship standing in reverse order, and see how it goes, if that fails a 5 min Qual will suffice.

I think the idea of not driving any car more than once(except for the final round) is not a bad idea, and we get the most out of the mod, so at this stage I think we should leave car list as is and just double up on a few cars to fill the grid slots for the current track..

Great news you are back to normal re internet  :) :) :) 8)

Opening post is also great, thanks Phil  :) :) :)

How will qualifying work for the 30 min race, just random? or a rolling start where we find out spots as usual from results of the previous race ?.....

For Qualy I'll publish the order before hand and have it handy to call out on the night, so rolling starts where we sort out the order during the lap.

Pop one of each car on the server for now so people can practice, but closer to race night trim it down to a more manageable size. People may express their car choice before hand but failing that go with something like this;
Two each of the following type
One BMW 2002
One BMW 320
The BMW M1
One Facetti
The Ferarri
One Lancia
One Porsche 930
One Porsche 935
One Toyota
The Capri
The Escort

The left out cars can be swapped in/out as the season and drivers wishes go.

Had to research a bit to find out what circuits Group 5 cars raced at and came up with Sebring. I don't recall ever racing this circuit in AC? I gave it a try in the Lancia BetaMontecarlo and it is good fun. Needs some learning but good flowing track.

The gr5_porsche _935_k3 comes up as porsche 930/80 k3 in server manager and causes the server to say you have missing content and cant join, so I will leave it out, the gr5_porsche _935_k2 comes up as porsche 930/76 K2 in server manager but does not cause the missing content issue.

PATCH (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pcd-NKZq8OkrXIRjWbg3FU9rictQ4xqd) is updated.

---IMPORTANT---
Please find this folder "gr5_porsche _935_k3" and delete it from your install.(Note the space after porsche)
Avoid confusing this folder "gr5_porsche _935_k3" and this folder "gr5_porsche_935_k3".
Iff you have the folder with the space in it then you need to delete it.


MASTER download is updating now so new users will not find the faulty folder in their install.
But all users still need to install the MASTER and PATCH downloads.

I've only tried the M1 but I get checksum as well.
If you can still join in the other cars, no need to remove it just yet.

From the logs, for CAR: 5 which I think is the M1
WARNING: Received negative ballast (0.000000) ignoring
WARNING: Received negative restrictor (0.000000) ignoring

Need to rejig the server to fix this I'd say.

Does or can the Server spit out a log file?
If it does then restart the server, try to join with the M1 then upload the log here.
I'll run some tests on my own server tomorrow.

And after a small change I got kicked from my own server too!

This is not meant to happen. The data folder hasn't been encrypted so no hash check should take place. :o

Cars are weight for engine capacity as per FIA reg's.
Tyres, both graphical and physics are sized for engine capacity as per FIA reg's.
Tyres use compound and construction from Kuno's 935\78.
Tyre blankets set for only 50º
Power is scaled to weight, using an arbitrary algorithm.
Aero drag is scaled to weight so the lower powered cars can still reach a decent top speed, using an arbitrary algorithm.
Wing(s) drag/lift is the same for all cars however the placement matches that of the model. Each car will have a different aero balance.
Gearboxes are free, you have 46 numbered gears and a couple of dozen diff ratios to choose from. Each car has either 4 or 5 gears as per real life.
Brake torque is scaled to weight, using an arbitrary algorithm. Max pedal should lock-up at most speeds as per real life.
Steering ratios are scaled to wheelbase, using an arbitrary algorithm.
Fixed colliders from DRM mod as they didn't work with 'car radar'
A few low res textures tweaked.
A few models tweaked, back faces, unneeded things etc.
Disc glow added.
Real names, although accuracy is not guaranteed.

All of the above is still a work in progress and subject to change.

Will run beside the DRM mod if for some reason you want to keep that, such as pick-up racing online.

I have had to redo the links to my G-Drive so if you could update the OP please Phil.

MASTER (https://drive.google.com/open?id=19AjhkOnHA2zNaCxcHOwT2gz97UzngVYR)

PATCH (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wlhpBzJuYW4WpMbxc2Yeaxdd_Mc0JKCs)

Members will need both MASTER and PATCH. But no need to redownload the MASTER if you already have it.
Every time I add to the PATCH I'll mention it so everyone can keep up to date. PATCH also has a time stamp so you can keep track that way.

I'm not able to join the server. No error message. Download master and patches multiple times deleted and re-installed.
Tried with and without password. Are we using PW?
Do we need to remove the cars that were removed from the server also?

How are we going to determine who gets which car for each race?
1st in 1st served?
I can just see a problem where you could spend a few hours practicing and working on a setup for a particular track only to find that when you join the server someone else has that car.
I suppose you could nominate which car you want a few days before and then the server could be set up to have the correct amount of that car available.

You need to nominate which car you want GW.

Is this method going to be too hard to admin Phil?

Also Seanus, I seem to think you said there was a version of this track with drive through bollards at the chicanes.

Yeah it's not compulsory to nominate a car but if you do each week then Phil can make sure there is an extra one for you.

And Roo' the OP and race thread have the correct link to the improved track. Members better check they have this version.

Perhaps just number the cars and drivers and everyone starts week one with matching car number and then increment from there each week. Driver number can equal nominated car number for week one.

I'll need to double check the link.
However the bollards are still there but instead of being concrete filled 44 gal drums they are now like a half buried wrecking ball. So you still hit something if you misjudge the chicane. This prevents cutting as it often launches the car into the air bust doesn't destroy your race or others following who would run up your arse if you came to a stop. The tyres at the edge of the sand trap are also the same so you can overshoot the chicane and still get back onto the track whereas before these tyres stopped you dead.
I did this as it was essential for offline racing with AI as it is impossible to stop the AI cutting corners, especially on the first lap, and it normally ended in a clusterfuck at the first chicane.

New links for the Mod including recent changes from DRM's version.

MAIN (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nMkN9CrYjKPL2yNVahBJbdOtmvJxDD2v)

SOUNDS (https://drive.google.com/open?id=11bB2FhnXpH90Cen05JTuqfKtcPS530vj)

SKINS (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dAsXr8M7f7hOAvelzrNPlVkmoWJdgaCj)

Unfortunately the updates meant a complete repackage of the Mod so everyone will need to download the whole thing again, delete the previous version and install the new. :-[ :-[
Split into three to avoid this happening again with further updates, no PATCH yet but one may come in the future.

All good thanks Seanus and Phil,  I can join with the new version of the mod.

I already had a track in mind to replace Nordzzzz if required, and that was Brno , which would be perfect for these cars ;D.

Brno as well as Oschersleben is getting too modernish for these cars.

Go for the complete opposite to Nords and use the Norisring.  ;D ;D ;D

Or we could go across the Atlantic and use Roads America/Atlanta or Watkins Glen.

https://malagoligarage.wordpress.com/2016/04/11/brno-circuit-v-1-1/

Has been a racing track since 1930s and in current form since 1950s so I think it also fits the current period  ;D

Norisring is ok, but flat and and a bit too short maybe :).

More chance to be lapped or to lap others. I like Norisring, fits the cars and the era.  :D :D
Never used it online before so that's a plus for it.
I seem to like very short or rather long circuits.  ;)

Group 5 Patch (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jmMTmB5VFEGbegApKucDvZD3kbJT2Bnl)

Just normalised the aero drag so the more powerful cars can make up for their barge like behaviour in the corners.  ;D

The server won't need updating Phil, as long as the car folders keep the same name the only changes you'll ever need to do to the server is track, and car allocation.
