    When you setup the server dedicated server.
    - select a track layout
    - click on weather
    - select "user-auto-saved" for practice session.
    - select "naturally progressing" for all other sessions
    - for each session you can set a real road multiplier.

    This way the real road is a continues loop, like a real track. :)


    To get a good real road:
    - vote in some AI
    - vote "straight to race"
    - You'll be a the back of the grid: Have fun to try to overtake as much AI as possible
    This way the AI won't drive the same line all the time, but also defending lines.


    Note:
    First time you setup a server with a new track. ==> there is no "user-auto-saved" file.
    - Select a green track or a preset and start the server.
    - add an AI
    - start "next session" (a user-auto-saved file is created)
    - Go back to "options"
    - a "user-auto-saved" file is now available in the weather menu.

    Some things to check:

    - The Vmod needs to be in the packages folder.
    - the Vmod needs to be installed from that packages folder
    - the Vmod file name doesn't contain spaces

    What do you mean with "mod":
    - Vmod or server mod (is a small file to setup the server)
    - Components or content: tracks and cars.

    Symsinc = mod-manager?

    its a league mod,server mod, cars + tracks
    symsinc - its a program that league admins can use, upload all files to their server and then drivers/teams can use the app to download all files, very easy and intuitive to use.
    in RF 2 it checks if all the files are downloaded in the corect places and etc..
    in packedeged the mod /cars and tracks seem to be installed ok

    I can't help you with symsinc. I've never used it.
    We use rF2 itself. :)

    Just login to a RD server. Everything you'll need will download and install for you.

    A program like symsinc isn't needed with rF2. I can understand that it is a nice program for rF1, AC, GCE, etc...
     
  7. It isn't needed. But theortically it should be possible to sync the Installed folder or only parts of it. Also then you need everything set up correctly in your install. But i have never tested this way because how you said its not needed anymore.

    yes you can have as many server with diffrent mods as you like..

    default ports are 64297 and 54297

    in 2nd server multiplayer.json change the ports to 64298 and 54298 (or something else)

    open them in your router, done.
