Can the IA stop "headlights me" over and over please ...

Discussion in 'RaceRoom Racing Experience' started by Le_Poilu, Dec 20, 2014.

  1. Did you see that IA use a lot the headlights when they're behind you ?

    At first I found this great, adding a little bit of "humanity" when you came back on the track right in the front of an IA driver (when exiting pit, or after some off track moment).

    But it seems that AI really like head-lighting, and if you look the mirror, they flash you even when you brake a little to early, or having a little bit of oversteering/drifting in front of them.

    It's a little bit too much when the guys behind you, against witch you're fighting since the beginning of the race flash you over and over when you just have a little slide in a turn.

  2. ...which leads me to the question if we will be able to turn off headlights someday and have a illuminated dashboard when headlights are on. For visual improvement and on some cars its really hard to read the info on the dashboard,e.g. SLS GTM13

  3. it does help to first see them, but it can be distracting.
  4. I think it works as it should, the purpose is to distract ;)
    Have seen this several times during watching ADAC Masters on TV.

  5. Interesting
  6. Standard practice for some drivers, maybe not so much others; hopefully at some point in the future it will be tied to a driver's 'personality' but I thought it's a nice touch for now, hope it stays.

    For the record, a lot of modern endurance cars have a button for flashing lights specifically for this reason, especially prototypes.
  7. Yeah, headlight flashing is common in road racing. Drivers use it to let a slower car know they are coming up to pass or as a distraction in a heated battle for position.
