No problems, I guess. It's common use to keep same colors throughout whole race so it's easier to understand who is who. Just don't change them every race ;)

:lol: No wories...im not a guy of changing all the time, actually on the contrary. It just was on the time for a change after maybe 2 years of the same colors.

Thats something i really like on the colors/combination you use. I can see clear thats you and then its easier to let you pass! :lol: With others (besides Mike that has a clear color too) is hard to identify them, so i say im sorry already if i dont let you pass easly on a overlapping... The info on the screen is just too much and too small to be able to interpretate it before the next turn! LOL So i never can really have a notion if im defending my position or wasting time from a faster guy overlapping me.
Should be more clear this info. Like, a simple position number over the car 1st, 4th,.... I prefer to know the position of the car that is behind me, rather then his name. Choosing priorities i think is necessary on this kind of things.

Nice! I spotted 1 error. You entered Sam twice, one with 2 races and one with 1 race, I think this should be one Sam with 3 races :P :lol:

You are warned. If you play again like that, you are banned from the league. Same to Dillon.

Yes Alfonso but last race we were driving same colors, now I know why I didnt got way by some cars xD. NP though, I might change back to my oldskool green with black stripe, but since Schumacher retire I put black with green stripe to match my F1 mood :roll:

I understand you as well...im also kind of sad that he quits but...he doesnt have the will of continue at all. You can see that by his performance on last GP. Overtaken by loads of drivers so easly and he was 5th!!! :shock: Im just sad that he didnt had a good car this season to be able to win at least one more race before going away. The unfair thing is....you will see next season with Hamilton there, they will have a great car that can battle for wins i bet, must be frustrating.

Would be fantastic on last race Brasil, Schumi winning it...and one of the two Vettel/Alonzo loose teh champ for just one point.

I will never forget when all Ferrari team was celebrating the victory of Massa on the championship but then.....Glock was passed by Hamilton on last turn! LOLOL Poor Massa and family...i think he will be traumatized the rest of his life with this event.

Anyway....you can keep these colors if you want, i dont mind to change mine. Just let me know something so we dont use same ones! :)


PS: Question, how do i make my own colors/design like DEDE has it? I dont want to be limited by the options from teh game, obviously is possible to make our own design, question is how? If someone can point me on teh right direction would be great! ;)
FORGET IT!!! I just found a thread speaking about it! :P Again was too lazy to look for it and its so much easier to simply ask! :)

One more time adjusting the car and finally it did work, but lost loads of time once again. 2nd pit stop, same history!!! :( Now it wasnt fun, was irritating, loosing time for such a stupid thing.
Yeah, this might a bit irritating for those who are used to "normal" pits. Please Wokinger, next track with normal pit area!
Hmm.. I really hate "normal" pits, but I will make bigger pitstalls ;)

Well ofcourse I like to keep mine but if you wan't to use the same you can do it too. Many players have really settles colors, eg the Italian flag of dede, Lanz white and yellow, shyguy blue and red, mike always light green (this was my first color too :p, but i decided to change).

Yes you can use those codes. You can also just hold shift or alt or both (or ctrl either or some of those keys) during picking your colors, you will see what happens.

Request: can you please not race on Emtilo track just THIS week? 'Cause I'll probably not make it home for the race and will have to skip this one.

:lol: Really? You think so? :?: I never saw a car like that in a funeral parade, just cause it has loads of black!? So what do you think about the Lotus on F1? :D

Anyway...i accepted your opinion and decided to give a little tweak! ;) It will stay like this even if someone says it looks like an elephant painted in green on a Tuesday night in a striptease bar! :lol:
