Lowered the left side safety net so as to see the mirror better. Also raised the centre mirror.
Couldn't get the odometer working as promised as I think CSP is a bit wonky at the moment.

Less skins in the main download. Smaller download. A shit tonne of skins are available at RD.
But the server only needs n? odd and there's 18 in the download.

We could just make the season a 'Legion' showcase.
That is each week if anyone has a car of mine they would like to drive against real humans with then we could go with that.
Even leaving the server open, with no password, would still work as only those familiar with my work are likely to have the car anyway.

See how many randoms join this Thursday to guage interest in Legion mods. For me If I like driving a car I like to drive that car on several different tracks ;) and I REALLY like driving the V8 Mazda :) and by using the same car for a few weeks we may get more non xgn people to turn up.

Yeah, no reason the preferred car could not be the Mazda for all rounds. Was worried a few might get spooked by it and shy away.  :-[
And of course I am always pushing my own boat.  :P

" Was worried a few might get spooked by it and shy away" I did not consider that aspect :-\.
I am all for variety in car selection and have no problem with your self promotion of your mods :).

There was some chatter about testing the SOL weather transition stuff, is this a good week / track to try it?
Title: Re: Season 19 - Mazda V8 Mate
Post by: GzeroD on October 29, 2019, 06:37:55 PM
I'll need to get myself comfortable with it first, then get Phil up to speed. I was thinking we could run few test servers during the week, then later get Thursday proper in on the trick.
Title: Re: Season 19 - Mazda V8 Mate
Post by: Phil.8 on October 31, 2019, 05:27:03 PM
I like keeping my game original and will probably not install sol myself,  also the Thursday server is already running at max with constant warning about cpu usage as it runs Tuesday practice and Thursday which I am not sure if that is the reason but I think causes me to get a monthly bill (which I don't care about, its only like $10 a month) on top of the yearly bill that Roo kindly paid for, So I am not even sure we could run it on the server unless we upgraded it which for what we do is probably not worth the investment

No extra load on the server. The config file tells the client's Content Manager what to load and that's it.
I think if the client doesn't have CM/Sol then it still works, just that you get stuck in the daytime without rain.

New link for Piestany.

>>>>>> HERE (https://drive.google.com/file/d/17DfJe73HdUsZkeSW2DLSnSa_KapfcQI9/view?usp=sharing) <<<<<<

Really needs CSP' grass on, to make it look as it does in real life.

Rationalised the chicanes and decluttered the track to match real life (albeit via Youtube).
Added short layout.

Track is renamed to 'Letisko Piestany', but appears ingame as 'Autodrome Piestany'.

Very nice Seanus :) first chicane seems a bit tougher to negotiate, not a bad thing or is it just me? A vast improvement overall 8) 8) , thanks.
Title: Re: Season 19 - Mazda V8 Mate
Post by: GzeroD on November 06, 2019, 02:36:57 PM
I rejigged the first chicane so you can't see a straight line through it.
Going by some U toobs I watched, even motorcycles had to slow down for that chicane so I figured there couldn't be a straight path through it.

However my, tyres with hidden speedbumps in them, means you can attack all the chicanes without fear of death but if you do get it wrong you'll end up in a mess.

Phil could you please put just two Toyotas on the server. That should leave plenty of Mazdas for everyone to drive but if anyone gets the hankering to try something different they have the GT86.
Everything that can be the same is the same between the Mazda and Toyota. But the differences will have to come out in the wash, performance wise.

My mate from Nam put a v8 in an RX8, it would fit in nicely with these cars.

I've tagged the two cars 'V8 Swap', so you never know what may join them.   :P

No offense meant but you can't put a V8 in a RX8. its sacrilege :(

Rather I suggest a Lada Niva with a V8.  4WD, short wheel base, light. What could go wrong?

Yeah you can.
You just need to chop chunks out of the chassis rail to make it fit. :o

My testing shows the 2 cars are VERY close in performance( no restrictor and track optimal) with the Toyota a bit easier to drive :) great work Seanus 8) would be great to see these cars on track at the same time.
