S26R1 - car dealer updated
« on: January 23, 2019, 07:31:45 PM »
I've uploaded the results into the Car Dealer. You've returned your car, and are back in the Boxster by default. You've earned some money (unless you won the round), and paid your damage fees.

You can see that the lower placed drivers will creep up the car list, not shoot right to the top.

You can check your bank statement to see what's happened to your money.

If you see any problems, or have any questions, fire away!

Awesome, I've only got $66 damage fee.  I thought it'll be worse...so I guess wall hits don't really count?

Just a reminder the dealer is here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/car-dealer

No, wall hits don't count. It's mainly to discourage you from hitting another car only.

I just re-did the results upload, as I realised some people didn't get bank account transactions recorded.

The damage fee is round about a max of $300 for a really banged up car (but it could be more).

I hope it works in future ...
I didn't hit anyone, they hit me and my bill is $324  :o

In the server logs and clearly visible in the replays, you had 3 contacts in both races 1 and 3, including one that pushed you into the wall at T1. Human memory is a fallible thing :) You can always see your contacts in the race results.

P.S. It's $234, not $324.

Maybe file an insurance claim against the offending party? Wally can deduct the amount from their account  ;D

Now lets recap - your comment was that it is to discourage "you" from hitting another car ..  ::)
I didn't say there wasn't contact ....
I said "I didn't hit anyone, they hit me" (this isn't a complaint either) ...  :P This is why I say "I hope it works in the future" ... you know, so other people don't hit me ...
** sigh ** I hope I have explained it clearly enough now  :P :P

You are correct in the damage bill - just my dyslexia kicking in there  ;D ;D

I guess it's a similar system to iRaping's - you have a contact, you suffer for it.   
It works on the long run, averages out, so if you're usually clean & careful, you'll be fine.  I know I'm not really that, but whatever :D

Right, gotcha. Unfortunately, as has always been the case, the server can't tell who hit who. It only knows there was contact between two cars. Both cars in a collision will accrue some damage bill.

I think I'm signed up twice?

I signed in on another computer and everything got reset. I cannot afford a decent car!

I just noticed that. I'll investigate what happened. Don't worry, you'll get your cash :)

When you logged on on the other computer, did it say you weren't signed up for the season, and did you sign up for the season again?

Edit: I cleaned your data up so you should have one entry again... but I've yet to find out how that happened  :o

Yes, yes and thanks.
