Misc AI performance change, less rain in dynamic weather, optional reverse track order career 5.1

AI perform like real life 2014 season, less rain, and option to do tracks in reverse order in career

  1. driveroz247 submitted a new resource:

    Reverse track order for full career mode and different tracks for short career - Reverses the order of tracks raced in career mode and other tweaks to AI and weather

  2. Looks Interesting about Driver performances
    Will try this now and Thanks for sharing :)
     
  3. I like the driver changes and condition changes, but don't like the track reversal bit. Could you maybe make two versions or split this database mod so to speak? a part with just the track order and a part with just the driver and condition changes?
     
  4. Track order change is very easy
    Open Database Editor and check for track_model table
    in that find the type of career and change their numbers
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  5. Tried with RBR and Yeah Daniel is Giving run for my Money in Aus and as you noted AI is performing exactly , Thanks for the mod :):thumbsup:

  6. That's probably not a bad idea.

    I can release an second updated database file with just the AI and dynamic weather updates, leaving out the reversed track order in career and changed short career schedule for those who don't want to play reversed track order in career.

    Give me a day or so.
     
  7. That's good to hear Kartik.

    The only thing I need to work out now is to how to stop the Williams cars from making an extra pit stop on some of the tracks, which may throw their results out a little. Other than that, their qualifying pace and race pace is up there with the Mercedes and Red Bulls.

    On top of that, I may try to decrease the ability of Magnussen just a little. I think that I may have made him a little bit better in races than he actually should be.
     
  8. Sweet, I'll patiently wait :)
     
  9. Adjust tire wear a bit more
    I have to test more races but i feel still Merc is reachable Can you make them even more stronger Quite frankly unless Merc drivers underperformed they get 1-2 on Sat and Sun quite easily
     
  10. You mean something like what happened in this race I did where Rosberg and Hamilton actually took each other out (I actually drove past the incident in my race and I :roflmao: :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:). Now that's realism for you.;)

    Thanks for the updated track order does this go in the database folder? Cant wait to test this! Do recommend a fresh profile for this mod? Plus i know this is a long shot but is there anything you can do about slowing cars down a fraction when they run off the track onto the grass. My example being the first corner in Melbourne ai love to overtake going two wide and running over the grass and then they get the inside line and better traction round corner 2 and up the second drs zone just to add insult to injury. Which is stupid!

  16. Yes qbm, this does indeed go into the database folder and you'll need to create a fresh new profile once you install this mod.

    Believe me, if I could figure out a way to slow down cars when they run off the track and onto the grass I definitely would change it. It is a little silly like this, I agree, but the F1 games from codies have always been like this.
     
  17. I am going to submit one more planned update for this mod (much larger and many more files than the original mod) sometime later today or in the next couple of days. This will be my final update to this mod which should then be complete, unless I get some feedback that something is not working correctly or needs changing.

    The update will be for both the track reversal database and the original track order database. It will only be small changes to AI and a complete update to dynamic weather in this mod.

  20. Apologies and sorry for having to do this again guys and gals, but I did find a few inconsistencies in the version 3.0 and 3.1 databases I released in terms of car and driver performances. They have now been corrected and tested (test result pics to follow with the release of versions 4.0/4.1). Also, the dynamic weather wet/dry ratio by sessions has also been improved since the last release, as there were still a little too many wet sessions after I ran a test.

    So, if you've downloaded the latest versions, there will be another version to follow tomorrow, which has now been tested and been found to be working as it should. New screenshots will also follow with the release of versions 4.0 and 4.1 showing how much the weather system and AI results have been optimised and now very accurately match real world F1 results and tables.

    So hang in there and be patient guys, the *final* complete version will indeed follow tomorrow. I would suggest to wait until you install versions 4.0 and 4.1 of the database before playing with this mod. It's just a database update you will still need the tod.xml files from the version 3.0 or 3.1 download, they haven't changed and still need to be added to the game. And when you install this database update in versions 4.0/4.1, you will be able to continue playing in GP mode as previously, but you may need to restart career.
