Strange, had plenty of excursions into the green, but no penalty

Please do code for my config.
The notification can stay as it is, each off-track excursion gets the green or red icon as usual and leave it up to the driver to count how many times they took too much liberty at a certain chicane etc.

As an aside, I turn off notifications in the race as I have already used them in practice so I know where the so called track limits are, and the race is a race and let the penalties sort them self out afterwards.


(If the track had natural limits such as concrete walls would we really want to penalise any driver who happened to hit a wall more than three times?)

It also depends on your speed - i.e. below a certain speed is no cut, if you are off track for more than a certain time it's no cut, if you slow down while off track, it's no cut.

Yeah i had no issues with cut tracks even in qually whrere i threw caution to the wind, to be honest if your getting cut tracks at imola on the exits your driving the track wrong. Imola you have to be very technically correct it rewards the slow in fast out style, the more you attack it the slower you go and your exits will be super tight and you will prob trigger a cut track on the astro turf. For instance the chicanes in s1 i just drop it in nice and smooth for the first half of the chicane hugging the inside so the 2nd phase is nice and straight and i can get on the power early and have plenty of room on the exits, the moment your exit feels cramped you have over cooked it.

Phil i probs have too much wing, need to meet somewhere in the middle
do you even motorsports?

Do you have the results to see where we end up after the penalties. Majority of my cuts were pushing the limits to gain time, some though, were mistakes from taking the wrong line or when in battle with another car.
I've found in this sim racing that it can be disheartening when you give it all you got, get what seems to be a good time, then only to have an alien beat you by another couple of seconds. So you (I) push harder and make more mistakes lol

As i said sometimes less is more just focus on making the exit neat, the pace you gain from a good corner exit extends to the whole straight. Also wally on the corner cut app i havent had the amount of cuts i have done or the green red light for a long time now lol

yes, occasionally I would be up like half a second and then throw it away and found it hard to replicate often, I reckon there is probably a 1.16 on mediums with practice and a decent setup for anyone who can drive it well like you and kcender

Yep, earlier up there is a red link to race results that show cuts, gap to leader etc.

Wally: regarding cuts that aren't cuts. I know that PLP has the green/red light to tell you if you are going to get a cut when you come back on but I usually don't see it. Maybe make it bigger or an option to make it bigger so you can't miss the red light. I don't even know where I got the cuts last night.
Take a look at the PLP app thread - there's a new version with the option to make the green/red square much bigger. By default now, it's the size of the entire app, but you can make it smaller.

Here's an interesting web site that has the real 2004 Imola pit stops.
https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2004/races/756/san-marino/pit-stop-summary.html

A lot of the field did 3 stops, over a 1hr 26 race. It would be interesting to see the tyre/fuel changes they did. Most of the pit stops are the same time, so they probably did fairly even fuel & tyre changes.

3 stops was my plan, until I spun in the 1st turn, hit the wall and killed the engine. :'(

The worst offender went outside of track limits 24 times! Matthew only went outside once.

Haha I thought I was bad this race. I had to go to check the results to see who that was  :-X

I'm happy with how PLP works and we all know the rules. I did think it gave me cuts when only 2 wheels were off the track a few times but at the speed of this car I was probably way off track and didn't realize. Being a fun run I threw caution to the wind but in a league race I'd definitely have tried not to get any.
