    Hi everyone.

    I'm doing some sprint races with fuel usage off as the AI can sometimes pick some awful 1 stop strategy and take them from first to last.

    In the interest of fair play I would like to match my starting fuel level with the AI, is there any way of finding out what this is?

    Thanks,
    Vern

    I'm pretty sure this comes from the HDV file?

    FuelRange=(1.0, 1.0, 125)
    FuelSetting=49

    You can edit this and add to the upgrades ini file

    Unfortunately not. I still don't know what an HDV file is.

    Well this I can answer.From what I currently know, it's an hidden file that carry the "physics" of a car. You can see the HDV file a car is referring to in its .veh file
    You cannot edit it but you can add lines in the "upgrades.ini" files of a serie to modify some settings in the .hdv file.
    For example, you can add a Engine Power Multiplier line in the upgrades to make the cars slower, or faster. And of course, you can assign each .veh file a different "upgrades.ini" to get differences between the cars

    Aren't the AI starting with the full tank nomatter how much laps is the race ? I think i read somewhere that the AI uses like 3 laps of fuel for the qualifications then they use full tank for the races. I may be wrong though
