Test Race - Shepig (USA) - 30 laps - Sunday 12 May 2013 @ 18:00 GMT
FYI it is a really bad idea to display times in "GMT" since almost all of us live in countries that follow daylight savings time. GMT does not.

And yes daylight savings time is stupid. stupid stupid stupid.

Anyway, see you in 4 hours (that is if I do not get distracted).

This will not be a bad competition. I only didn't know that car pats are so tin. Seems they're just one line. :P Also, car images could be centralized better.
I liked the pit visiting length (enough time to relax a bit).

I prefer smaller pats. It's better to close fights.

But I make this competition for whole community, so just tell me if you prefer smaller one or normal. ;)

Well because my style is to drive throttle on all the time, it uses more fuel which is fine but its not fair that I have to make more pit stops because of it. Like now we need exactly 400% of fuel to finish, make it 450% or 468% or something. Also makes it more interesting for everyone to try different strategies.

And explain why I lost 5 seconds to whip in the first pit stops?

Wtf, you should make it to be 1 pixel then.
Listen, do not count spoiler as a car's pat and as a part of car's image. That's why car's image isn't centralized well, and car looks like it's jumping if you turn it closely. You will feel it if you position car to prefect 0-180 angle and then try to turn it slowly left-right. You will see that it jumps.

Same. Optimal strategy for me would have been fill tank to 90% and make that extra stop but I realised that too late. Lots of time lost.

I think if fuel consumption were slower but damage would have more effect on speed then there could be more tactical side to racing.

i did a full race as practice local. first 7 laps i drove full throttle and used almost 100 percent...so 14%/lap...then i drove 8 laps saving fuel like crazy and needed only 12%/lap, but my pace was at least 0.5s/lap slower due to rolling out so often and a bit by sucking with that driving style^^
so hev, due to long pits i guess we were forced to do a 3 stopper and do at least 2 stints with fuel saving.

the race, lol..i thought id have a somewhat easy win vs dede (and woki) there with my testing and strategy, but dedes fuelsaving pace is way better than mine, so the 1st stint lead (lead + 5% less fuel used and 5% are like 2 seconds less to be in pits) didnt hold up. 2nd stint consumption was still 3% less compared to dede, but i warped offroad and lost 3-4 seconds. another sec or more i lost in stint 3 or so when lapping and getting irritated, missing breakpoint and going offroad.

only 3rd place in the end...4sec or so to woki, 7-8 to dede, quite disappointing i wouldnt have won anyway -.- (although, i woulda been longer in front of dede and blocking him seemed to be important)

in the end, with that 10p idle consumption it really feels sucky to drive, not so much enjoyable if you drive and feel like a snake all the time, trying to save fuel, rolling out early and behind you ppl cry "fk mike, make place you slow ***"^^
id very likely prefer to start every race in last place and have 100p idle consumption instead :S

I see what you mean. I will make a bit shorter races then.

ex. Shepig wouldn't be 30 laps (at least 2 8laps stints with 3 stops strategy), but 28 laps (4 x 7 laps stints).

strange pc crash during warm up, luckily it didn't happen during the race! missed those laps towards the race and quali! 1st stint was kinda nice! but since i had no clue how much fuel to put in the tank i lost the contact to dede and mike! from then on race was a bit boring but still enjoyable! took me ages to get used to the car! 4th place was all i could achieve today!

I liked the racing, car was easier to drive than to put in correct folder. I have the feeling that Tijny will have much better pace, so training will be important but hopefully easier than PTM.

I will miss some races, I guess. Maybe even first one :(

the "drive throttle on all the time" is faster so it should use more fuel.

This is like THE ONLY advantage I will ever get so I would be very displeased if we changed it. I get enough of a disadvantage from the damage system: had crash in first corner and boom 86%(there was a pile up) not to mention there is quite a bit of contact down there at the places where I am racing. I feel much comfortable playing rough racing (beefing allowed/not does not matter), so how about we do not change the one thing that gives the slow guys a bit of an edge, eh?

Apparently my "to the max" is the same as Mikes "saving fuel like crazy"...

Changes after test race:

1. I recalculated length of races. Now it should be easier to make 3-stop strategy.

2. Cars pat file has been changed. 3 new cars added (2 ferraris and 1 mclaren). So dede can choose ferrari now :D
DOWNLOAD NEW PACK!

3. Cars hit effected deleted.

4. 2 worst results aren't counted to final standings.

And that's all. If u have any more suggestions, please write them!


EDIT:

dede, whiplash, pingu, popowitch, Kiwi, Alukin, kikiriki choose car, which you can drive. There is rule: 1 car = 1 driver.

Are we allowed to race with owr own colors or we need to stick to red in order to keep car color the same as it shows in the png? If I can drive with Italian flag, then give me number 71!

It's suggested to keep color, but there is no such an obligation. ;)

As you can see from first post, races are every sunday. I think Szymek has already taken #69 McLaren car. You have to choose one that has not been taken yet.

I would just start server with master server disabled. And then you can give these commands and play:
/fuel 1 480 40 10 3
/set ForceDamage 2
/set MaxEnergy 50000
/set MaxCarHitEffect 0
/set MaxWallHitEffect 10000
/set FullRepairTime 100
/set MaxSlowdown 0.030000
/set SlowdownStartLimit 1.000000

Easier would be but those commands in macros.ini file like this:
Begin gte
/fuel 1 480 40 10 3
/set ForceDamage 2
/set MaxEnergy 50000
/set MaxCarHitEffect 0
/set MaxWallHitEffect 10000
/set FullRepairTime 100
/set MaxSlowdown 0.030000
/set SlowdownStartLimit 1.000000
End

And then just give server command:
/run gte


If you don't want to open (local) server then you can put those values to game.ini file. There you can find "# Fuel settings" and "# Damage settings" with default values. Just change the values and then start the game.
