This is very good. Still a bit unsure about how the legion one drives, worth digging into the data file maybe?
Its great right out of the box and funnily enough provided good AI racing oddly.

Imagine me criticizing a mash up! Sublime hypocrisy neh?

The above car is a real mongrel made up of the Automobilista Formula Vee, an rFactor Formula Ford (as far as I can tell) also Automobilista, some scaling threw me off, the engine in the description not matching the one in the model and to top it all off the physics are minimally edited copypasta from the Skip Barber Formula 2000 Regional mod.

Not long for RD I'd say.

What is the best version of Sebring please?

None that I have tried are authentically bumpy but I would say click on the link in the signature of the fellow that posted above you and go to 'Other Tracks' section to download the one there, it is down at the bottom.

Yeah, i've asked around but no luck except the one Legion did some stuff on for me. Still old versions of the track with the wrong layout.

I just watched the onboards from Chris Haye's video again and couldn't spot any differences in layout between the RRE and AC versions. The AC version has a no-chicane layout and all the other turns look the same to me.

so I am wanting to try to start my hand at some modding. I am wanting to try to take on the URD cars which have no animated wipers. What is a good tutorial for learning this? Has someone already fixed these mods that were never updated? For instance, none of their DTM cars have animated wipers and the Mercedes CLK GTR GT1 does but flops all over the place when you drive it. I am wanting to fix these.

Sure, let me know I've left that broken and I can fix it myself. (or if you already did that please forgive me for overlooking it)

Thanks for fixing the spawn position. Please feel free to include my RainFX configs in the download or upload to the CSP github.

Ultimately the same source, as AC's convert comes from STCC the Game, made by the same Company that became R3E

Will do. Thanks. :cheers:

anyone got rainfx config for donington2018?

@Cozy61 might have a better version, haven't found it in RD though

Its the one thing that made me think about buying a 6DOF platform.. except.. well.. the tracks (mostly) that we have in simracing dont have that fidelity so it would be a waste of time probably.

without going to motion, which is great, you might want to get tactile.
Tactile will make you feel the bumpiness of the track surface much better than in the wheel FFB.
For example many complain that R3E tracks are too smooth, but with tactile I can feel the bumps just fine, same with many AC tracks.
Too much bumpiness is not a natural/realistic feeling in a wheel FFB and can be downright annoying.

I'm over 5000 hours in AC (much more than any other) so I don't have to say how much I love this game. But from the sims I'm regularily using (rf2, R3E, AMS 1/2, iRacing) the AI in AC is by far the worst. No, I'm not doing those amateur mistakes mentioned before. I was told so many times it's me, I started to analyze my replays and still doing so occasionally. Sometimes I'm still surprised it was my mistake, but in most of the cases the AI just ruin my race.
OK, but why people are saying the opposite then? I think we are not using the game the same way. My favourite race mode is starting last and trying to finish highest possible. It's definitely the most demanding for AI but I'm doing the same in all of the other sims. Very rarely have problem with the other ones, in AC there is significantly more trouble.
The pace of the AI is also very poor compared to other sims. On most of the tracks they are painfully slow, all official tracks included.
Oh, and almost forgot to mention the chaotic start, because I'm so much used to it, I always wait 5 sec after green and catching them after the first corner. In other sims the start is much much better.
Yeah, AI sucks, it's not the end of the world, there is so much else to love.

- AI Aggression - I haven't done enough testing to really say this with much conviction, but I'm pretty sure that set at 100%, this simply puts the AI right on the edge of their driving limit, meaning you're far more likely to see stupid overtake attempts, inconsistency in leaving space and other anomalies (it will also highlight any AI line/side line/hint problems for a track). In my races, the AI are set from 40 up to about 80% depending on car/track combo and they tend to be more consistent as a result, I find it's mostly about trying to find a balance between a procession and reckless divebombing.

At least personally I try to keep the aggression below 50% because thats what I suspect is happening. But I can't say if it does much if at all. Doing multi-class stuff I even try to turn the slower class's aggression down.

Oh trust me, I don't like the Forza AI in its current implementation but it is a much better system. A neural network that learns from players rather than being based off of one AI file is a great idea. Of course that means it learns bad techniques, such as divebombing and deliberately using other cars to brake, but it does it in a way that feels like playing with randoms in an online race. If they took that tech and put it in a proper sim, and made the drivers follow general racing rules, it would be incredible.

I agree that the principal is good and also that if implemented correctly it would be excellent. It's unfortunate that the system in its current state is all but a massive scam by Turn 10, with no discernible difference between the drivatar of someone who's never played the game and a top ten leaderboard drivertar, all of course encompassed by massive levels of rubberbanding.

At least personally I try to keep the aggression below 50% because thats what I suspect is happening. But I can't say if it does much if at all. Doing multi-class stuff I even try to turn the slower class's aggression down.

Can be good on wider tracks with plenty of passing spots but 40-50% on a tighter street circuit and you'll end up with one big 'follow the leader', sometimes you just have to increase it and accept a bit more carnage.

if my memory serves me, then someone from kunos wrote on the official website ac that the "aggressiveness" setting is responsible for how far bots can go off the track when overtaking / attacking

On the subject of AC's AI, I've noticed something recently that I never expected; the speed/power of your machine also effects the AI. I've just upgraded to a brand new machine, and one of the first things I noticed was that the AI (and the FFB) were both completely different. I found the FFB much better than before, and the AI more aggresive, but also faster than before. And that's using the exact same settings in CM. I suspect that the greater availability of CPU cycles has more impact than I thought, and I suspect that's also why we get so many differing opinions about the AI. I used to think they're terrible, now I don't really think so. They're not perfect, but neither am I... :)

Yeas the amount of ai definitely affects the CPU. I keep them to a max of 15 these days.

Anyone else have issues with sector timing with Reboot Sonoma? It doesn't have Sector 2, Sector 1 seems to be both 1 and 2, so without a Sector 2 time, I never get an actual lap time.
