    In addition to this, it would be nice to set up 3 different starting groups. Like in real life.
    This spreads up the traffic already before the start.
    When the GT3s are on the start finish line, the 2nd group could be at the beginning of the Döttinger Höhe. The 3rd group could start at Pflanzgarten.

    Exactly. That's precisely what I was trying to communicate. May have failed a bit...

    Some things to add in a (not so :D) near future:
    # Ability to change drivers in endurance races.
    # Possibility to have "personnal" skins, like it is in all sims.
    # Day/night cycle.Would be great in endurance races...;)
    # Tyres physics.
    # Sparkles, when bottoming.
    To be continued..... :)

    So current tyres work without physics?

    S3 studios, thank you so much for the most important tools for singleplayer endurance racing!
    Now what about a mid session save and / or a driver swap with the AI function? :)

    I requested this in a separate thread ages ago but I feel it's time to try again. It's to do with realistic damper values in the setup screen instead of the roman numeral values. In rfactor/gtr etc etc there was always the option in the PLR file for it.

    Hi,
    In rFactor there has always been the option to switch from roman numeral values in the setup screen (i.e. 1, 2, 3 etc) to the real-world values (in N/M/S). In rFactor 2 you do this by editing the "Damper Units":true, line in the player.json file. I much prefer this approach for proper setup work. I was hoping it would still be there because Raceroom is a development of the ISI motor engine. However the PLR file is protected and I can't see the value.

    If not is it possible this could be added? The roman numeral values mean nothing to me and I can never tell what proportion of bump/rebound I have.

    Thanks. :p
    Pretty please.
    Anyone agree with me on this?
    :)

    When I see videos of racing teams setting up their cars (bike), I hear them always speaking of "clicks"...
    So I believe there is no really a unit, which is practically used in the real world.

    But what is a 'click'? The problem I have is there is no way of knowing if one value, say bump, is higher or lower than the other one. In Assetto Corsa I've noticed I can have bump set to 1 and rebound set to 2 but when I look in the engineer app rebound is actually a lower value. Therefore they are not proportional values. It would just take out some of the guess work and if we had it before I don't see why we can't have it now. :)

    However what would be nice is if a dev could actually confirm that setting rebound higher in the setup screen always means it's higher in real terms. And that means across all cars. That would set my mind at rest. If someone could confirm that I wouldn't need the option. :)

    That isn't how the relationship between bump and rebound works. Rebound is usually higher than bump damping, and the adjustment ranges of bump and rebound are quite different. So typically, if you set bump to 1 and rebound to 1, the rebound rate is 25% higher. Then, if you go full up with say 16 16 - or whatever the maximum allowed is - rebound rate may then be 50% higher than bump.

    The point therefore is that bump and rebound perform different jobs and therefore are usually quite different. We could put the numbers in game, but unlike spring rates it's highly unusual to deal in those values. Every race team I've had dealings with talks in clicks and not n/mm or damper coefficients.

    I'm just here to ask for a dirt build up layer on the cars and windscreens (like race07) and working wipers to go with them. Thanks.

    While dirt up is cool, you don't want to use the wipers with the sort of dirt that you pick up off a racetrack unless you like smears over your windshield. There a reason that cars have those tear-offs.

    Whatever, same thing, just use really strong detergent, the stuff that ends the planet within weeks.

    Yes, but that's really the point I'm making - there is nothing in-game that tells me how much higher the rebound setting is. If I set 4/4 I might assume they are equal because there is nothing to tell me otherwise. If we had the option for the realistic values we could actually see it.

    However, thanks for confirming that the values are not proportional. :)

    1. I really want more variety of datastreams to be used by i.e. Motec or similar tools like as Z1 Analyzer.
    I.e.:
    * Rideheight
    * Suspension
    * Dampeners
    * Carcass tyre temperatures
    * and so on.

    2. More settings for car-setup:
    * I.e. tire pressure. :rolleyes:

    3. More direct commands for the pit-crew, which plugins, or direct from keyboard/gamebuttons, may have access to. I.e.:
    * Plugin support to set/retrieve data, i.e. fuel amount controlled by voiceattack.
    * Keyboard/joystick support to directly set data such as what type of pitstop to use (instead of sitting and scrolling through menus while battling an other car on the racetrack) such as change tires, fill fuel, do not fix aerodamage, do nothing (drivethrough/stop&go) and other important variables to communicated with the pitcrew.

    4. Using AI with multiplayer, and support for a Linux server.

    5. And last and most important, ranking system to get rid of ramming users in multiplayer, though SRS does a great job with that, but the community currently seems to be quite scattered right now so there is not so much players around.

    Regarding point 3. If you use crew chief app you can get him to do most of this already, tell home how much fuel to put in etc.

    @ravey1981
    Problem is that Crewchiefs voice-recognition does not recognize me as good as Voiceattack. As I understand it they use different engines, and I am not sure how to train Crewchiefs voice recognition to my voice...
