Yeah, no reason the preferred car could not be the Mazda for all rounds. Was worried a few might get spooked by it and shy away.  :-[
And of course I am always pushing my own boat.  :P

" Was worried a few might get spooked by it and shy away" I did not consider that aspect :-\.
I am all for variety in car selection and have no problem with your self promotion of your mods :).

There was some chatter about testing the SOL weather transition stuff, is this a good week / track to try it?

I'll need to get myself comfortable with it first, then get Phil up to speed. I was thinking we could run few test servers during the week, then later get Thursday proper in on the trick.

I like keeping my game original and will probably not install sol myself,  also the Thursday server is already running at max with constant warning about cpu usage as it runs Tuesday practice and Thursday which I am not sure if that is the reason but I think causes me to get a monthly bill (which I don't care about, its only like $10 a month) on top of the yearly bill that Roo kindly paid for, So I am not even sure we could run it on the server unless we upgraded it which for what we do is probably not worth the investment

No extra load on the server. The config file tells the client's Content Manager what to load and that's it.
I think if the client doesn't have CM/Sol then it still works, just that you get stuck in the daytime without rain.

New link for Piestany.

>>>>>> HERE <<<<<<

Really needs CSP' grass on, to make it look as it does in real life.

Rationalised the chicanes and decluttered the track to match real life (albeit via Youtube).
Added short layout.

Track is renamed to 'Letisko Piestany', but appears ingame as 'Autodrome Piestany'.

Very nice Seanus :) first chicane seems a bit tougher to negotiate, not a bad thing or is it just me? A vast improvement overall 8) 8) , thanks.

I rejigged the first chicane so you can't see a straight line through it.
Going by some U toobs I watched, even motorcycles had to slow down for that chicane so I figured there couldn't be a straight path through it.

However my, tyres with hidden speedbumps in them, means you can attack all the chicanes without fear of death but if you do get it wrong you'll end up in a mess.

Phil could you please put just two Toyotas on the server. That should leave plenty of Mazdas for everyone to drive but if anyone gets the hankering to try something different they have the GT86.
Everything that can be the same is the same between the Mazda and Toyota. But the differences will have to come out in the wash, performance wise.

My mate from Nam put a v8 in an RX8, it would fit in nicely with these cars.


(and that "Nam" is Nambour :P ;D )

I've tagged the two cars 'V8 Swap', so you never know what may join them.   :P
