    Hi -

    Hate to be that guy, but I'm not finding these answers in search engines or on steam.

    You don't need to necessarily walk me through "how", for right now just trying to figure out if certain options are possible in rFactor 2. If you have a link or something to more info that'd be cool too!

    If people don't mind I'll just post these questions in separate threads so as not to be too long.

    1. Max cars per server? And, is it car specific or user specfic (because I know with the endurance stuff you may have a user on the server but they aren't racing, just waiting their turn.

    Technically: There is no limit to a rF2 server, it depends on the server hardware (CPU, RAM and connection speed)

    You'll need 256kbs up and download per client for the server + some head room.

    So if you have a 10Mbs server use 80% ==> set in the rF2 dedicated_server.exe max 8Mbs up/download.
    Simple calculation: 8000kbs/256kbs = +/- 30 connected clients maximum.

    a Client = a driver, a spectators and keep in mind ==> livetiming listners / data streaming plugins
