    Thanks Patrick. Just to clarify, by the time schedule do you mean the in-game time? If so then I have just changed this from 9am to 2pm. :thumbsup:

    I have changed the server setup so that the practice, qualifying and warm-up sessions should now be at a time during the day whilst it is still light.

    IMPORTANT

    To clarify my earlier request to test the server setup, all information and suggestions are welcome, but it's specifically the race configuration (and in particular the start) that needs to be tested. :thumbsup:

    We did a bit of racing on Jacksonville and you need to have the SC, but the default sensetivity was way to high. A guy spun at the back on his own and we got a caution. At Jacksonville as soon as you get out of the 0.5 seconds you loose the draft and get lost unless you have a draft buddy, so cautions are always welcome at this track :)

    I have made some adjustments, so hopefully it'll be OK for the race on Monday. Feel free to test it yourself, and let me know if any further tweaks should be made. :thumbsup:

    I have also tested the race start procedure and everything seems to run smoothly, so there shouldn't be a repeat of the fiasco seen on Thursday. ;)
     
  16. What value do you use for SafetyCarOvalMult and SpinOvalSeverity?
     
  17. Daiman Patel

    0.5 and 0.8, respectively. Do you think that's too high? Would be happy to change them if you have better values in mind. :thumbsup:
     
  18. With 0.6 and 0.3 it was to high.
    I have on the server at the moment 0.6 and 0.15 but didnt test it since i updated the vmod.

    Edit 0.2 instead of 0.6 both times.

    OK, should I maybe increase the SafetyCarOvalMult value to 1.0 and decrease SpinOvalSeverity to 0.1 / 0.05? This should be a high enough value for SafetyCarOvalMult so there aren't too many full-course cautions (the higher the value the less sensitive it is, thus there will be less chance of a full-course caution), and a low enough value for SpinOvalSeverity to result in fewer full-course cautions for spins.
     
  20. Worth trying them.
    I dont think we find the perfect once in the first shoot ;)
