People just have to drive with a little more caution at the start, which is always true. More than ever, a 2 hr race is not going to be won in the first few corners!


If there is carnage, we can do restarts.

Guess I'll try and join this one but as I've hardly driven nords it will most likely be more a 2 hour hotlap session than a race for me. Still, a good way to learn the track better.
I know the track quite well, having run a few races here. It's a good feeling to get to know the track, a nice one to have in your repertoire.

Wally is also not going to have tyre blankets on race night so its not going to get any easier.

So you want to create more opportunity for turn 1 and 2 pileups and multiple restarts and too many offs for drivers that will most likely quit in the first lap because it will be too hard. It's going to be hard enough a race as it is, you're just making it harder especially for those with less experience on the track...

this is supposed to be a "fun run" and you're turning into a serious event... why don't you just have 100% damage while you're at it and then we can all quit in the first lap and Marty can lap by himself.
It's so that if you come up to someone who's just exited pits on cold tyres, you have a chance to pass them while they're vulnerable. That's more fun. A challenge is fun and more rewarding. Otherwise, we'd just be playing pCars.

If lap times are 8:30, the race can go for up to 17 mins longer than the duration (at most nearly 2 laps extra), so if anything, you'd want to make the race shorter rather than longer. 1:50 will lead to a race that's anywhere between 1:58.5 to 2:07 in length.

Yep, I've already bumped up the race over time to give people time to finish the race.

I've made the race length 1hr50 + 1 lap. Because a lap is 8+ mins, this will bring it close to 2 hrs in total duration.

What happens is when the time left reaches 0:00 (after 1hr50 of racing), it says "The leader has 2 laps to go" at the top of the screen, because the leader has to finish the lap that he's on when the time reaches 0:00, then do 1 more lap to end the race.
Then it says "The leader is on the final lap".

this should be interesting round, it is going to be a race of tyre management,  just lapping normal not over doing it lefts are at about 103 degrees, start pushing they get too warm, and one mistake forget about doing any reasonable pace for a lap or so until they drop 20 or 30 degree.   

This is not a complaint, i am looking forward to the tyre management
 
is it just me or does anyone else think ac does not feel right when tyres are cold or too warm,  in any car I have been in at speed , either driving or passenger I have never felt like I am driving on ice, unless I am driving on ice, one of my previous jobs gave me access to basketville and we would unload the old ute at end of the day and even crap tyres never felt like on ice in middle of tassie winter with outside temp of like 10 degree when lapping at basketball, or some of the mazdas and nissans and stuff I got a go in and drive a couple never felt like you would slide off the road cause tyrers were cold.

anyway to me ac feels realistic when tyres are normal temps and it just feels like they made it slippery to simulate cold and hot

Hmm but practice server is being used for qualifying, yes?
Yep.

Those temps seem fine. In assettocorsa.ini, I think there's a setting about number of physics threads. -1 is automatic. That relates to the number of cores used. You could try different values there e. G 2 should use 2 cores.

Grat, have you checked CPU temps? To me, that onset of stuttering has always sounded like overheating problems. That could be why it starts off good, and then degrades with stuttering starting.

I added a link to the qualifying times in the first post.

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: S8 R1 - Mosport 2012 - 27-04-2017

That was a tremendous race with Mael. We were pretty close for most of the race, with Mael in front except for when he made one little mistake and I could get in front for a while. His Lotus had too much speed down the back straight for my Lola though. Really good racing.

Sorry for the no show. I'm in New Zealand ATM and knew I'd forgotten to do something before I left- notify that I want going to make it. See you next week.
No worries Darren, see you at New Jersey.

The handful of cars I've tested have only had 8 or so seconds between them.

14
Tested a few cars and seems the p 4/5 is a bit too slow so unlikely anyone will pick that, about 20 seconds off the pace just down on power quite a bit and hasnt got a great deal of grip either so not a lot going for it lol.
That's why I originally excluded it, for being too slow. But hey, someone might just enjoy driving it for 2 hours.

I'm getting a checksum error on your server Marty, any ideas?
There was a new version released at some stage. The latest version of the track on RD is 1.1.
