    I'm fine tuning the AI for the release patch and a little feedback on the kind of times people are able to do would help me.

    I'm looking for direct drive laptimes only please at any of the layouts.

    Thanks.

    Did a quick test and race. Not a lot of time on these but it is a lot of fun.
    Testing and race at Granja4 direct drive kart.

    I was trying Interlagos Kart 3. My laptimes have been somewhere between 28.2 and 29 secs. It fit quite well with the AI at the standard level.

    But I recognized that the AI has some problems taking into account blue flags e.g. in the qualifying. They give full throttle although they are in the out lap and I'm on the fast lap. Plus sometime at the start (before the 3rd turn) some karts are flying into the air due to crashes :D Not sure what kind of thing that is :p

    Hope that helped a bit!

    Cheers

    p.s.: Big thank you for your really nice work!

    I noticed considerable handling differences depending on the driving views.

    It's all in your head trust me... I can't drive the karts with bodywork cause I can't see the front wheels, the physics are identical though :)

    Just to let everyone know that there is a substantial update to the kart physics & AI in line for the official release.

    In the meantime, you might want to adjust the realfeelplugin.ini settings for improved / more informative FFB with the karts to the following settings (on the bottom of the file):

    [kart1]
    MaxForceAtSteeringRack=340.000000
    SteeringDamper=11500.000000
    FFBMixerRealFeelPercent=100.000000
    FrontGripEffect=0.200000
    SmoothingLevel=0
    Kf=10000.000000
    Ks=4.000000
    A=1.000000
    Kr=8.000000
    [kart2]
    MaxForceAtSteeringRack=350.000000
    SteeringDamper=11500.000000
    FFBMixerRealFeelPercent=100.000000
    FrontGripEffect=0.200000
    SmoothingLevel=0
    Kf=10000.000000
    Ks=4.000000
    A=1.000000
    Kr=8.000000

    Also make sure to keep your steering rotation within 180º-270º (180º is the realistic setting).

    I found cut rules to be too relaxed as i gained 2-5 secs sometimes going straight over corners (by accident), Also i moved my mouse watching AI but then could not get my mouse curser to show again, maybe the default setting for this could be left unbound?

    For the controls, check whatever you have chosen for free look cockpit mouse movement, or something like it. Might be the "-" key.

    For the first time ever when Sim racing I'm experiencing motion sickness driving these Karts!
    It is my first time driving Karts in Sims, so I think I'm not used yet to the insane handling speed. Maybe I can have a go at the head-movement parameters.
    AI @ 100% seems quite difficult, but in a full field of AI @ 100% (22 karts) I'm driving around the 17th time, so I still have to find a few tenths.

    I run head movement right down at 25% or I get motion sickness real quick too.

    Where exactly can you cut hugely btw?
