PC Anyone interested in a long GT/LMP race today/this weekend?

Discussion in 'Project CARS' started by Vaughn Stegeman, Jan 29, 2016.

  1. Hey all!
    I'm a little race-hyped with the Rolex Daytona 24 here
    So I'm talking about a "24 hour" race, compressed into half-hour or hour. GT and/or LMP cars. I was thinkin maybe Spa, Road America, Laguna Seca, or Bathurst. We could run it on the 24/7 server too. Whoever is the first to enter can set up the race and conditions. Set tire wear and fuel consumption to like 4x or so.
    I'll check in pretty regularly on this, maybe jump on the server for awhile, see if anyone comes in.
    Or if not today -- which is short notice -- sometime this weekend would be cool. :)

  4. Well I have no schedule ... at any time really. As long as it's not pre-noon local time :p (18:00 GMT .. I'm CST)
    I've also noticed that, while you can decrease fuel usage or turn it off, you cannot INCREASE fuel usage ... seems like yet another very odd omission eh :\
    @Rodent do you have any track preferences?
    I've been messing around with clever use of time slots re: weather. .. It's kinda cool to have 3 dry slots, and one random slot, at about 20x to 40x acceleration, with time-of-day being run at 50x for a 30-min race or 25x for an hour race. You get some good weather/day-cycle combinations that way. ... try it out in some single-player quick races. :)
    ..
    I hope enough people are interested in this. Longer races are pretty fun ... as long as we don't get server drops. .. then races involve pit strategy and tire/fuel conservation and ... stuff ... and things

    Seeing as it's the Bathurst 12 hour this weekend I'd say that, but I'm down for whatever.

    I think PC is ideal for some endurance racing, perhaps @Dennis might organise one in the near future(hopefully) :notworthy::thumbsup:

  8. Depending on his interest and time. But we could work something up as well if enough people are into it. Anyone can set something up on the 24/7 server if it's up. The first one in the server becomes the host.

    I'm definitely interested, but I think first we need to get back to consistently having 20+ grids in normal club races or else a longer multiclass race will be too uneventful.
    But as Vaughn has said, you can always set up "unofficial" events on the 24/7 server :thumbsup:
