For whatever reason Content Manager recognizes certain strings of characters in strange ways. You've run in to one of them. Cars in Formula A would be shown when trying to view Formula B, Formula C, etc.Hi all,

As I have a nice collection of cars, I thought I would be time to properly classify and group them.

So one night this week I sat down and clicked and typed away for hours. Every car in its correct class. I found a nice system to do that, courtesy of some inspiring folks here..

However, I found out that, when for instance I want to create a race that CM (or AC) does not recognize these classes or screws them up.

For instance, I have Formula 1 cars, depending on their era, grouped into Formula A to Formula F.

However, if i click on the tag#FORMULA BI get all the FORMULA cars, from A to F.

Also:

When selecting opponents for a race, do I need to select them on TAG or Race class?

The only (and somewhat ugly) solution to this problem is by using a slash or hyphen character.

So instead of all of your classes being "Formula A, Formula B", it would be "Formula/A, Formula/B" or "Formula-A, Formula-B" instead.

Point behind this is to trick the game into thinking each tag is just one word instead of several, because for some reason if you have multiple words, the game will group together classes based on one word in the classes' name for some reason.

Hope this helps!

IN SHORT:

Do:

Formula/A, Formula/B.

Formula-A, Formula-B.

Don't:

Formula A, Formula B.

Funny thing is this isn't even consistent across all tags. I have my GT1, GT2/E, GT3, split up into "GT Group 1, GT Group 2, GT Group 3," for real as well as fictional cars. I don't get any cross-polution with those tags.
