Road Ontario February 2nd, round 2

Post by Olaf Lehmann » 25 Jan 2023, 17:36

If I read the calendar correctly, this should be the new track.
Unfortunately, gpltracksdatabase has been unavailable for days. Does anyone have any idea how I can get this track?

@André: I can now create the wider grids in seconds. I have written a tool for this.
I also wrote a second tool that can be used to increase the distances between the pitstalls if you only have a few participants, as we do. The drivers then distributed more evenly across the pit lane. One pitstall is always left free.
I'll send you the tool when the test phase is over. For the time being, I'll be happy to create the grids.

BR Olaf

Great news,

If you can create the grid edit for the tracks I miss that would be great.

I have the track at home. And can paste it here later today.

Hi Olaf,
I've got the installer and update zips. I'll try to email them to you. I think I've got your address.
Cheers,
Seb.

(edit) Sorry, the installer is being blocked for security. Any way I can upload it here?

Hi Olaf,

I see we are far off the world record times. Does the dirtgear patch play an effect on the track surface?

No André, there should be no difference in grip level on the track - at least as long as the tyres don't degrade.

Hi Olaf,
Do we need any pit line / pit board fix for Road Ontario?

Something is wrong with the track.
lane_bounds_dlong does not include the whole pitstall area. That is why not all pit boards will be displayed!

All driver should change lane_bounds_dlong to this:


lane_bounds_dlong = 5600.0 280.0 ; start/end dlong of the pit lane
