Some sprints in the Tatuus FA01 at Melbourne.

Track: download Albert Park from this list of tracks.


I want to have a couple more fun runs before the next season starts, to give people time to get back from holidays and what not. What would you guys like to run?
  • An ACC enduro, say 1 hour, with pit stops and more chance of rain?
  • Tatuus FA01 at Nordschleife?
  • A TCR practice race?

Season 29 will feature 2.0 litre touring cars, using the XGN car dealer as a strategic handicapping system again. The cars are BOP'd to have a spread of performance capabilities, so that the slower drivers can once more afford to drive a faster car, based on your fastest race lap times.

The (mostly FWD) cars are easy to drive (but quickly?), harder to spin, easier to rub panels.

This time round, you will earn more money than last time and be able to afford faster cars quicker, however at the end of the round you will return your car and only keep your earnings from that round - i.e. you can't save up a profit. It's up to you whether you're going to aim to be among the faster drivers one round, and then have a slower car the next round, or take a more middle ground. End result - closer racing.

There will be a damage fee again when you return your car.

The cars
Citroen C-Elysee WTCC TC1
Mercedes A45 AMG TCR
Seat Leon TCR
Nissan Primera
Hyundai Veloster

The cars come from a variety of different mods, packaged into one download HERE.

Update 28/6: Car pack updated to include extra AMG A45 skins
Update 29/6: Fix Nissan Primera minimum ride height (or download individual file in this post).

The tracks
Brands Hatch Indy
Donington GP
Silverstone GP
New Jersey Motorsport Park

Sign up
Sign up at the XGN Car Dealer. The season will start July 23 (after some ACC and AC fun runs/trial races).

Assetto Corsa Competizione / Fun run 2/7 - Nurburgring sprints
« on: June 26, 2019, 08:09:28 PM »
Here is the first inter-season ACC fun run. This will be a bit of an experiment all round - how to admin, how does the tiny server cope, etc.

The race format is a race weekend at Nurburgring with a P, Q1 and 25 min race on Saturday, and then Q2 and another 25 min race on Sunday. The first race should be clear and sunny in the middle of the day; the second race will start just before sunset and proceed into the night.

The way the weather works, it is random (controlled by some parameters I set). So I can't say for sure that it won't rain, but I have made it unlikely to rain.

You can join with any car (I think the Lexus and the newer Bentley are the easiest, and the Porsche is the hardest). There are no compulsory pit stops. The usual password applies.

Make sure you know, at a minimum:
  • How to turn your lights on
  • How to turn your wipers on
  • How to turn your pit limiter on - you will get disqualified for speeding in pit lane, for example
  • How to start your car (or enable auto-start)
How to join the server
Click the Multiplayer tile, then click on Server List. Then search for xgnacc, enter the password, and connect.

The server is up already in this configuration (minus password for now).

3 x 13 laps. Weather forecast is 17, 20 and 19 degrees, light winds.

This track has 24 pit boxes, so I'll be dropping Grat, Gratulin and JamieP.

The fastest laps were all set by Bacchulum, and coming second in the round sees him move up into second place in the standings.

Time to fly around the banked oval!

3 x 9 laps

Weather is hot - 27, 30 and 31 degrees.

This track only has 25 pit boxes, and we have 27 sign ups. So I'm going to drop off Gratulin and Grat off the grid for this round.

I'm trying to gauge interest in ACC here at XGN, just for some real broad future planning with no commitment one way or the other (I put the poll in this forum because I thought more people would see it here).

Some options:

By "full seasons", I envisage alternating AC and ACC seasons.

For "between AC seasons", I would like to run proper endurance races, say 2 hours, to make proper use of tyre management and strategy, and dealing with changeable conditions (and maybe driver swaps).

Congratulations to Guybrush on the clean sweep, winning every point on offer, taking Guybrush up to 2nd in the standings. Other big movers up the leaderboard are Bird (+5), and down, ab156 (-4).

There are some installation notes on RD:
 To remove spectators from the track, extract the contents of NO PEOPLE.zip to the data folder
 To reinstall spectators from the track, extract the contents of PEOPLE.zip to the data folder
 The default installation of this track is configured for a "SHADER PATCH" set up. The textures for all camera_facing objects (spectators) are much darker to make them correctly exposed when using the current Patch. These files are also in the SOL+SHADER PATCH.zip archive.
 If you use a standard AC set up please extract the contents of VANILLA TEXTURES.zip to the data folder (over-writing the originals). These textures are lighter and are designed to be correctly exposed with a standard AC set up.

It's a long circuit, 10km, so get some practice in!

Congratulations to Kcender on pole, and to Kcender, Guybrush and Joe for the individual race wins. Kcender won the overall round and maintains his championship lead. Guybrush has slipped down the standings after a 10th and a DNF after winning race 1. Other big movers up the leaderboard are ab156 (+4), and down, Killagorilla (-5). In the team standings, Krahl Racing extend their lead over Aleph Null to lead by 16 points.

Lap 1 Penalties

Race 1
Bird understeered into the outside barrier at turn 1 and bounced off of it and spun causing a pile up – racing incident.

AGK ran into the back of Bacchulum into turn 2 – 30 kg penalty.

Killagorilla clipped the grass and subsequently locked brakes into turn 2 and hit Joe – because it was a result of slipping on the grass – racing incident.

After being knocked off the track at turn 2, Bacchulum did what I tentatively call an unsafe re-entry from the grass and clipped Joe, spinning him. Bacchulum re-entered carefully, but the track was really busy with cars at that point and Bacchulum should have really let more of the field pass before re-joining – so 30 kg penalty.

Race 2
Guybrush had recovered from hitting the wall, and Killagorilla ran into the side of him at turn 2, moving a long way from left to right and not hugging the inside and giving Guybrush racing room, hitting Guybrush off the track – 30 kg penalty.

Race 3
Bacchulum clipped the barrier and Kcender collected him – racing incident.
