I am going to hold fun runs for a while as we don't really have the numbers anymore for championships

The server will be setup for no practice with 10 mins of qualifying and short 10 or 15 min races.
If anyone hates this format let me know.

Track
https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/okayama-international-circuit.15846/



Even though it will only be like 8 lap or something, whatever works out to be 10 or 15 mins of racing, I would like to spice it up a bit by making the fuel usage and tyre wear high enough to force a pitstop, so if anyone gets the time to test what fuel and tyre wear I would have to make the server to make this possible would be really helpful as I probably wont get around to doing that until next Wednesday.

Again if anyone hates this idea let me know and I will make it just short races with no pitstops,  I was just thinking something a bit different might add a new element to the game

Not sure if you know but you can open the fanatec driver software and check the box to use sequential as paddle buttons (or something like that)

x7 fuel will require a splash & dash to do 8 laps.
I'll test tyre wear offline with a multiplier, so I have to do less laps. :P

x5 is max multiplier offline in CM.
Tyres wear quickly to 80% (tyre wear scale 13 in Sidekick) but then the deg. rate slows down.
Rears went quickly, giving a big imbalance, but around lap 4 the rears plateaued while the fronts kept at the higher rate, slowly bring the balance back.
Therefore, as the race wears on and balance comes back it would be better to stay out than pit for new tyres.

I say, max out fuel and tyre multiplier, and even if it doesn't force a pitstop, it will add variability.

Hey Phil, I downloaded the Skippy from link above and works fine offline, but says

car missing in CM when joining server. Has been a recent update to Skippy to 1.1

wondering if server is still original version?  Cheers Dave O. ;)
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

Yes, there has been an update (since yesterday :o )
We'll need to update the server.
