Next Season - Shelby Cobra of course !
« on: December 14, 2017, 10:01:59 PM »
Next season will be brought to you by FLATTOP Racing
(inspired by one Lemmy Caution)

>>>>The Cobra the whole Cobra and nothing but the Cobra <<<<


This post is to start putting down ideas for tracks

Also I am not as talented at making a post that looks anywhere near as good as Bruce could for the Thursday seasons.
So if anyone wants to write up a fancy post for future seasons don't be afraid to put your hand up.

Here's a quote from Thursday Night's Season 1; Round 1 Post race chat

Quote
Enjoyed the racing last night, I wished I hadn't got caught up in the couple of accidents, but did enjoy the car, plenty of value.

Night 1 with 12 racers fronting up made a nice size field for the inaugural Thursday Nights' Fun Runs.  The Shelby Cup has some points assigned to it, (Ionly need to get the results!, I have one screenshot only and have no logs. Next week's upgrade). So who ever can provide the places I would appreciate it...

I know, I know, I can hear it already...  ;D

Pre race one, with 3 minutes to go I do a radical change to the setup, not the worst thing concidering I also drained the tank to try for abetter time...
I do like the advantage of getting back to the pits and being able to change from an impossible, (read "stupid"), setup and at least be able to continue on.  Next time I will cross the start/finish line, then escape to the pits to remove the lost lap.

Now some one ended up in the pits too, from the start! I think it ...? If you can be on team speak, we would all be happy to restart the race under those circumstances, it is really disappointing being so close and missing out the race.

Race 2 saw me catching a few, smashing, catching a few... but enjoyed the experience.  Now with the server at least easier to configure/run for next week I think i can concentrate on the races more...

You may have noticed, we are now going to be racing at Goodwood, an change of tracks.  I think this is more suited to the cars and the event.
Sign ups will remain as they are, with the current numbers, the reserves will remain on the grid unless pushed out by a perm commitment by new racers.

Hope you all enjoyed as much as I did. Thanks for being part of the event. Thanks for the preparation assistance too.

Bruce.

I am not asking for help and if no one wants to that's cool, I just thought someone might be able to do more justice to the season posts than I can :)

They were done by Bruce using"HTML" they do make a season look great don't they, just one of the many talents he had, my wife has dabbled in it, but that was 10 years ago, and would be beyond me. Right Click on banner page and select View Page Source to see what is involved.

Not sure what to replace Castle Hill with. Any ideas?

Also, try out Salzburgring. Is it just me or is the mesh strangely bumpy?

Will do , 5 rounds may be enough, and I will think of an additional track if needed.

Thanks Wally. I have it too but I was looking for an "official" download link. Don't know why it was removed from RaceDepartment or perhaps it was never there? The old link from Bruce's original season post goes to the AC Mod forum. There is this link:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/20tlxyox8pm5rk0/castlehill1_0.rar

which is from madcowie's facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/ACaddons/posts/254713217985670

I've added that the first post track list.

mediafire for CastleHill is ok and I think it is a good track and try this link for Salzburgring to see if it is a better track https://actrackrebootproject.wixsite.com/ac-track-re-boot/salzburgring

Yep. That's better. It has been updated from the SandroX version. You can tell by the new version

1. not starting you facing a wall
2. Orange bollards at the chicane on T1
3. There are now marshalls in the marshall enclosures
4. There's a hot air balloon!!

it is still bumpy but better
