    I'm trying something new as far as the weather goes because the way the default system works results in little or no rain in most events. Without going into the finer details, the weather is generated by an external app in such a way that even I do not know what it has come up with.

    One advantage of doing it this way is that I can now provide a basic weather forecast. It's important to note that, just like real forecasts, they may not be entirely accurate! Please let me know if this is something you would like to see or whether you'd prefer not knowing.

    Also, I have never used this method for weather before so if there are any problems (such as it not working!) then I would appreciate it if people could let me know. :)

    There is rain every session. I would prefer a mix of sun and rain. :D

    As I said, I do not determine the weather. Doing it all manually would not only give me an unfair advantage when I race, but would also reduce the fun factor.

    Just like Race 07's own system, it is based loosely on a number of general factors such as track location and season. So for example, it is more likely to rain at Brands Hatch than at Monaco because we Brits enjoy rubbish weather all year round. It's also more likely to rain in Winter than in Summer.

    I also said that the forecasts were not 100% accurate. Just as in real life they may be wrong... the whole of qualy may be one long 'sunny spell', and there may be no storm during the race... or maybe the whole race will be one long storm.

    Thinking about it, if posting a weather forecast is going to reduce sign-ups then I won't bother posting them in future. It's supposed to be all about coping with the weather, not bailing out because you don't like the conditions.

    I think the weather forecast is a good idea, it gives information about all the sessions. :thumbsup:
