    Hi,

    i have an idea.

    No one see what other people drives in the game, expectionally club races or something. Some people like me have not enough time and would like to drive some quick laps, upload the hotlap and thats it. (like R3E hotlap server)

    This game need a hotlap section and why not a thread ? A thread which automatically calculate a uploaded *hotlap.vcr file, is it possible, somehow ? Would be great.

    Another solution, someone must take care of it. Need too much time to evaluate all the vcr files from all ams and add.tracks with all the different cars, i think...


    Btw.: I wish for all pad or "no big wheel" drivers a section with aids on, whatever u want, its allowed. :ninja: :sneaky:

    I predict many people will discover that they are not as quick as they believed when that feature launches. :p

    Yeah, this comment has been missing of course. ;)

    Btw. is that important ? I like to work on the next laptime for the next better rank. I have enough time to analyse the track and thats the fun.

    Sure, not in expert, i have not a big wheel and stuff and not the patience for this damper/suspension work, but with pad @ amateur mode i had a good time on the R3E leaderboard. The good thing on this, every driver has the same setup...

    I don't mind being slower than somebody (specialy if somebody put 50+ laps on that car-track combination, god knows how many hours in that sim ans got more skill) .. But having reference how much slower i am is nice thing to have :) im usually 1 second slower when hotlapping anyway :)

    My r3e experiences say, with same setups its much easier to climb a good position. And for ams i hope a "aids on" section compensates different setups as much as possible. Would be nice. I'm curious how it works.

    We will see.
    Renato (i think) said that they want to leave Early Access end of April
    with that step all the features should basically work.
    But not sure if this has changed in the meantime.

    I don`t mind them to extend EA .. whatever time they need ... exiting EA seems to be more bussines than developement step/decision ... look at AC ... out of EA for a long time but developement wise still pretty much EA/beta (in positive way oviously as they are fixing and improving)

    As much as AMS might be the end of a project its easy to argue that the implementation of their community interface assets, ie global lap time leaderboard and web integrated multiplayer service, are all going to be laying the ground work for what comes with Reiza 17 so an extension of the AMS early access would likely still involve beneficial work for the next iteration of their product.

    Really... Who needs hotlap vids etc? I'm tired of all those people who upload 10 vids the week where they record their self when driving a lap... Uh how great you are you did a complete lap, congrats...

    Please let this on pcars and ac where they can show the great graphics and terrible sounds... Keep ams as sim for online racing

    The more options the better.
    The hotlap feature doesn't harm the multiplayer.

    ? If implemented as optional sharing of saved replay of best lap or as ghost you loaded to your session i dont see how could anybody have issue with it.. I know players that use this to improve their times in R3E.. Im fine with lap times only but where does this negative reaction came from? It is not gonna lower simulation deepness of this game

    No one speak about vids uploading... It was about hotlap uploading, replay files for hotlap challenging or something.

    I agree with you, that would be pretty shitty, but a hotlap feature like R3E's would be really awesome.

    I basically play R3E just for that, because besides playing with content for free(you don't need to own the cars to compete in hotlap competitions), I also love to compare myself to others and have an objective. Unfortunately I'm in my final year of high school so I don't have much time to race, and so this competition are really fun to do and more "casual", if you know what I mean.

    Having them in Automobilista would be phenomenal, and I think it would really bring the game on a whole new level.

    There's a huge button on the main menu saying "Hotlap".
    It's not a question of "if" but rather "when" ;)

    But what if I don't want to know how slow I really am?! If the button is there, I will click it, I will drive it, and then I will be sad. Currently I can put the AI as low as I want, and wow I am fast. You should see me go, dipping, dodging, and diving as I lap the field. I just may be the next Schumacher you know! But noo, Reiza has to implement more features all the time! Why can't they just release a mostly finished product and move on to the next game like a normal developer. Support, extra features, new cars and tracks, a real bunch of jerks.
