AI Lines Extended Tutorial:
Extended Tutorial Corrections/Additions/Clarifications
9:30 I should have said “I like the FX17 for recording side lines” 15:50 You don’t need to start recording a fast_lane at the start/finish line, and you should plan to run at least 2 laps before using the candidate
17:10 I currently think AI can benefit from a fast_lane created with the same car you are planning to race. I.E. a fast lane recorded with an FA01 is good for the FA01, but maybe not as good for regular road cars
18:25 You do not need to hit the button to “save AI”, that’s actually for folks working on mod cars
19:50 The AI can’t always manage some turns the same as a human driver would, so if you recognize one those scenarios you may want the fast_lane to be different than the ideal_line.
21:50 I meant to click the second “start recording” button to record a pit_lane candidate
VALUE entries in the ai_hints.ini can be greater than 1.0.
There's a thread over on the official AC forums that describes how you can use CSV files to define the track boundaries when creating AI Lines.
This app attempts to help automate some of that process by letting you "drive" the left and right track boundaries (using the front left and right tires accordingly). After recording the boundaries you can restart the hotlap session while holding "shift" in order to request AC use the CSV files you've just recorded.
