Nordschleife 108 Grid Spots

    Right in time for the upcoming real 24 hours race on the Nordschleife I release this little addon. I added 'some' grid spots and now you are able to drive with 108 cars on the Ring at once.
    This was mainly an experiment whether AC could handle this amount of cars so don't expect perfection. The pitlane is heavily overcrowded and for proper positioning of crew members there was no space.



    Funnily with my PC I had no problems with the GPU. I have a GTX 970 and normally I run max details @ 60 FPS. With 108 cars at the start of a race (!) it were still >30 FPS. My CPU, an Intel i7 6700K couldn't cope with calculating 108 car physics (AI) in realtime, so the game was going in slow-motion. With 60 AI cars I had no problems with the CPU.
    For online use it should perform even better - I'm already planning a one-off VLN multiplayer race over @ virtualracing.de. Let's see if we can organize a race with >100 participants - details on that will follow at a later point.

    Please be aware, that this addon will bring AC and your PC to their limits. Use it at your own risk!
    As this addon is basically the same as the OSRW grid spot extensions I assume it is OK to upload it here. If someone wants to have it removed, please inform me and I will try to do so as soon as possible.

    Its great for VLN sim. i7-7700k barely handles 64 cars @4k maxed, but its awesome, ty!

    I appreciate the work you did, but I have to say that already with 60 cars the game does not run in an acceptable way. Stuttering deluxe. >>> For me a useless mod. CPU: Intel i7 4790. Anyway: Nice try, but AC is not made for such a mass of cars right now.

    I already had a 60 slots mod, but 99% PO on my i7 4790K+GeForce GTX980 LOL. But a Le Mans with 60 slots would be cool, I think (as asked before me)

    Thx a lot! Do you think you can do the same thing for Lemans 1.2 and had it 60 boxes?
    Thx again.

    I can hardly run more than 18 AI on my machine, so I'm mostly curious about the online use. With a grid of ~20 different cars this should still be in a workable state for an average GPU. Question is if a server can run 3 times the number of intended players at the same time without huge delays.

      Nobody knows, time to find it out ;) You're welcome to join our test race.

    it's a great idea, however I wouldn't expect any CPU (under DX11) to do so much calculations without crazy amount of delayed phys steps, check my screen: i7 5960x, 107AI of Pagani Huayra http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e165/raufzero/raufzero044/Beznbsptytuu_zpszsxugxsx.jpg
    PHY=177% mean that every phys step is calculated over 5ms, while it should be under 3ms (designed limit), so engine is waiting to long for CPU do the job so even that 42fps is worthless ;(

    Thank you very much, there´s a lot of tracks that needs more pit boxes and could be cool, so is there any way you can learn to me create more boxes, i´m very interested in tracks like Magny Course.....any help would be appreciated
