Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: Season 24 Skins
« on: September 15, 2018, 09:30:50 PM »
dumb Q from a not so newbie, but do we need to d/l these skins from somewhere for the game to work or is there a zip file somewhere with everything on it?

Also where do you find the templates...?

cheers,
Bradc.
Skin templates are in - assettocorsa/sdk/dev/skin_templates.

thanks, which model Porsche is it as I grabbed the 911 RSR however it looks totally different to the ones others have used... ???

I know I can't make round 2, so if that's ok I'd love to join for the other races.

This looks great, I would love to jump in as a precursor to moving back into racing on Tuesday nights

Is there an old school Kyalami available for AC? These cars might go well there as there is not a lot of technical corners and it’s wide enough for drafting and multiple racing lines

Congratulations Bacchulum - well done!

here, here! Congratulations on a well deserved win  8)

I had some fantastic racing in this series and tonight was no different.  I love these old fast F1 circuits and I had some awesome battles through the night. My biggest problem with the Ferrari was turn 1. I simply couldn't carry enough speed through it to keep the Lancia's at bay on the corner exit. Even changing the ratio of 4th to help give it a kick on the exit didn't help me and it was only in the tow of other cars that I could accelerate fast enough to stop a turn 2 overtake. Surprisingly tyre wear wasn't an issue and I guess not having a turbo help the fuel economy as the car was great to drive at 9 10th's but trying to use that last 10th usually ended up in wall! What I did learn, was that IF I got a good start I could hold off the faster cars for the bulk of the lap by ensuring I held my lines and made them go around the outside, provided I got a good run through turn 1.

In the feature race I had a great duel with Phil for about 10 mintues until he got a run out of turn 1 and once he was in front his superior lap speed made me a very small spec in his rear view mirror....

I’d like to lock in a Ferrari 512

I’ve been waiting all season for this track, if only they’d open up the closed sections for modern F1 instead of that obination they’ve turned it into these days called the A1 ring

Should be the /78 as the /77 weighs less than a tonne and will have too great an advantage over the others.

ah....that would explain why it so was much nicer to drive. Might be something to watch for on Thursday as I automatically thought it was an option as it was selectable when joining the practice server.

QUESTION ???
I noticed on the practice server there is a Porsche 935/77 but I didn't see it on the list of eligible cars from a post earlier in this thread. Is this a car we can use ? If so, I'd like one.

Exactly G0D, I had a choice of Porsche, Porsche or Porsche. :-\
I've already driven all the others. :(

I feel your pain as I am in a similar boat and I really don't want to race a glorified volkswagon...

Phil, please only load the following cars for this round.
To honour the USA only overweight cars are eligible this round.

Facetti 308 Carma FF
BMW M1
Porsche 930/76 K2
Porsche 930/80 K3
Porsche 935/78
Ferrari 512BB LM


Where's the blue oval? Surely there'd have to be a Ford option, seeing we're stateside?

Boy that was a tough night of racing...I had thought the long straights of Monza would have been best suited to the BWM M1, however its legs were simply too short to keep pace with Bacchulum and his Ferrari, I think he's done enough to take the championship now, so well done! It was really interesting how difficult I found it was to stop the M1. It's lack of a 5th gear required caution during down shifting it was easy to lose concentration and cause compression lock ups, resulting in spinning off into the weeds. For the bulk of the lap I felt comfortable however the Ascari curves proved to be my achilles. I struggled all night to stop and rotate the car here without riding the curbs or dipping a front right into the spoon drain like curbing and exit all crossed up and out of control. Stopping any later than the 200m board meant it was John Derre season.

That said, the racing around here was awesome! In all three races I had some fantastic duels with a lot of different drivers and that 30 minute race was mentally tiring. After the first two sprints I was getting comfortable running around in the high 41's, low 42's, yet in the feature race, 43's were extremely difficult to achieve. The additional fuel really made the task a lot harder. I spent a lot of the race chasing Phil and I felt it was easy to get close, but in the same car it was extremely difficult to get enough to be in a position to pass. We had a couple of battles towards the end of the race however I made (yet another) a mistake in Ascari and decided to give up the fight as I was concerned about running out of fuel. As it turned out the race ended up at the right time for me as I doubt I would have finished another lap with what fuel I had.

Choosing cars for the next two rounds is going to be interesting as I really don't want to touch any of the Beetles as they seem woefully slow compared to the other makes. Perhaps some BOP intervention might save them, but thankfully we're not racing at LeMans so that won't happen  ;D

Practice server is currently set to standard Monza Phil.

So which Monza is the race on?
Tuesday night it was set to Testing Monza which didn’t have the first chicane and that was terrific. If we ar using a different layout then I may need to change my car selection
