  2. Hi guys, what version of Monaco are we using, 2007 or 2008? The url posted is for the 2007 track so the servers will be 07 until I hear otherwise :)

    no reason to skip a good working track version, so 2007 should do well again...

  10. Thanks guys :)

    I guess it is safe to assume that 2007 is the choice :)

  11. 2008 is better (at least visually) but 007 is the norm.. You can even see the same track in use on the few older RBR simulator clips on tube...

    Guys, I'm afraid of the pit exit and like to enforce some kind of gentleman agreement how to deal with it.

    In my first test yesterday I noticed that there's no line to mark the exit lane on the right side of the track. If I want to completly benefit from our no pit speed limit rule and take the pit exit as quick as possible, I automatically cross the whole track to end on the left side of it. In my eyes this is very, very dangerous and unpredictable for incoming traffic, because no one knows how far to the left the exiting driver will go. Or will he stay at the middle or on the right side?

    My suggestion would be to agree, that the exiting driver always trys to stay on the right side of the track or we allow us at maximum to drive to the middle of the track, so that the fast driver from behind can be sure the left side is reserved for him. In my opinion the exiting driver has the right to defend the inside line into T1 then and the fast driver should think twice if a move on the outside makes sence. Of course it depends on the exact position of both cars at this moment and if it's a position fight or the exiting driver will be lapped. But even if it's about lapping I could wait through T1 and better pass up the hill then. (all just suggestions)

    Finally if we want such an agreement we should only be sure that we all agree to the same thing. If it's not the wish of the majority I have no problem at all. Makes things more interesting. :)

    PS: In general it should be a good idea to stay away from the right side of the track when passing the pit exit lap by lap... :)

  13. I concur, was thinking about this exact same thing yesterday too. I vote for pit exit is on the right side of track until T1 where you can defend your position. No swaying of any kind, not even one move.

    If i remember correctly, in the 2008 version the inside of T1 is not blocked so you can "cut" the T1 when exiting pits....

    EDIT: I was right, the 2008 Monaco has way better pit exit, it extends all the way to the uphill, using the real life cut on T1.. Based on this, and only this info, i would vote for 2008 version. It has much better visual aspect, more visual cues, the curbs are modelled better.. Haven't checked the grip levels yet.

  14. Griplevels on both versions are 1.02, which is odd since Monaco should have lo grip.. It makes our jobs easier.. :)

    But... 2008 is really a different thing. it's wider, some bumbs are very different, corners, everything is different.. I need to watch some laps from real life to compare which one is closer... Without that one bumb after Casino (i know that's not right in v2008..) it would be easy choice for me.

    EDIT: IMHO, disregarding that Casino bumb, 2008 is closer to real life. But i guess that since all previous seasons have used the 2007 layout, we'll stick to that.. mrrr...
     
  15. I agree, when exiting pits we should hold the right side (inside) of the track until t1. If it happens that the fast car is side by side with the guy exiting the pits when they enter t1 I think it is ok that they go side by side into the turn and battle for position.

    I also agree that we need to keep to the left of the track when we pass the pit exit in case there is somebody comming out of the pits.

    Even though the 2008 version of the track is better it is too late to change now I think.

  16. Yup, the 2008 is so much different that we would all need to do a totally new practice for it. There's no time for it, everybody would need to do 100 extra laps on the new layout, it's that different.. And that Casino bumb.. why oh why has the track builder decided to ditch real life on that one 20m section of track in favour of some gameplay issue he thought there were...... Everywhere else it's so close but in that particular bumb, the car bottoms out and gets a little bit of air.
