I had a thought, folks. Would a feature be useful in the app to only enable it on Tuesdays, and disable it automatically on other days? It really only makes sense in a league setting.

I would love that feature. I don't really like "spamming" the chat when not running in a league or in a league that doesn't use PLP.

It would be good if there was a way to disable it if needed in game without disabling it in launcher. Its good to see where I cut in practice but more the lights are a nuisance showing a jump start each race. Cuts I rarely do anyway and I like seeing plp as its more strict then ingame cut detection so does avoid abusing track too much. If someone was to practice especially at Spa for example with plp off then run on Tuesday they will notice you cant run so wide everywhere and have issues with cuts. Even plp is still fairly soft here at Eau Rogue and Blonchimont for track limits. If you get a cut there you shouldnt complain as you eed to be way outside to get detected.

Maybe if there was an option to disable chat spam but just show the app notices. This then could cause issues on a race nite with people having it off by mistake. So the best option may still be to simply disable it in launcher when you dont want to use it.

Good point Marty. I can disable everything but the cut warnings on a non-Tuesday, including the chat messages.

I've added a new version 1.15 as an attachment in the first post.

This adds an ENABLED_DAYS setting in the PLP.ini file, which makes the app enabled on Tuesdays only by default (you can change the setting to enable the app on other days too, if you want).

On non-enabled days, you will still get cut track warnings showing up, but there will be no PLP chat messages, and no start lights displayed.

Good work Wally I think that will be a welcome fature for most people, good to see us not spam every other servers chat.

Those that havent used the app yet may want to load it up on the practice server and skip to a race if nobody else is there to test the start lights. If using this version that will only work Tuesday.

Wally do you think maybe on other days when lights are off you culd still pop the lights up at the start of session for a few seconds and then have a message come up saying lights disabled today currently only available on Tuesdays or something along those lines. Also if someone enables or disables the app it may be good to show lights and then this message. That way people will know if the lights are enabled or not before the actual start.

When the app pops up now for a few seconds at the start, the windows title says "Pit Lane Penalty -  DISABLED".  That should hopefully be enough of a cue.

With the introduction of false starts in AC 1.7, we no longer need the PLP "Wally" lights. Instead, we will be using the game's drive through penalty for a jump start.


YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD VERSION 1.15 OF THE PLP APP FROM THE FIRST POST


This turns the PLP lights off. When you dismiss and activate the app, you should no longer see the PLP lights flash up as a preview.

Kinda fun for me to watch a KS live stream and see "PLP: running version 1.7" come up in the chat window  8)

Everybody knows PLP! It's like the third Australian export after iron ore and kangaroo scrotum.
