    Resources, how long since you could have a chat or decent communication ingame online? Oh, never, cause if it isnt covered by a warning message or drowned out by the bright background its gone before you had chance to read it. Resources are used to fleece and extract as much as they can out of the naive end user, how many realistic car setup options do you have, asymmetrical, nope, tyre pressures, nope thats three simple but effective things off the top of my head, i would prefer if resources were put to better use, your definition and mine of better may well vary by quite some distance, limited resources, i dont buy it, tight owner\budget maybe, limited resources, nope, just pushed in the wrong direction at times!

    Nope, still gonna disagree, in the six years I've been using RR, year on year, progress has amplified, not going to say it's a finished product by a long shot and there is loads of features missing or having a lack of UI to be able to use but please point me in the direction of a sim that covers all the bases?
    So RR doesn't have everything you so desperately need, it lacks things we all need. Running a studio under the circumstances S3 do, makes the cafe's and pop up competitions a priority, as you well know.
    Ever since the monthly update schedule started, things have made a leap forward and the day RR is finished will be a sad day for me, as I'm pretty sure I'm enjoying the journey, rather than concerning myself to much about the destination.
    Trying to work out if you've gotten out the wrong side of the bed or worried your Nephew will beat your times! :D

    Would be nice if you had a replay from qualifying.
    That could facilitate the work in league operation the REKO work.

    In the six years, says it all really, amplified, nah, slow and methodical more like although at times not that methodical. I dont desperately need anything in a gaming sense (fit young woman would be nice tho ;) ) Its the simple things that annoy me, things that should of been implemented early on that are the basics for what was at the time an online only game, no chat being the biggest of them.
    My attitude to the game isnt affected by time of day or whether i have just gotten out of bed, i enjoy it, probably too much and want to see it improve and there is no doubt how it has, especially the last 18months by leaps and bounds, but that dosnt mean im gonna love it blindly and not be critical or comment when i think something is wrong or could be added or improved.
    If i sound critical or if my expectations are too high, so be it, six years its been out im in my fourth year, too many simple things need pointing out and complaining about, rather than the usual apathy and just accepting more people should be complaining and making the point!

    Huh, my nephew, he`s got a good teacher ;) He no doubt will be faster than me eventually not that thats too hard, plus he has 30 years on me so my days are numbered :)

    your time line for me is exagerated , as there have been a few phases , id take the date of the birth of the game from about 6 months after Sector 3 began to exist , what came before was a completely different vision of the game and because of that the stuff we see as as a simple add on can be a complete nightmare due to it being stripped out or hardcoded closed in the original concept

    there are so many things being worked on behind the scenes , some i know about some i dont , but some of the very basic request just break everything and its a cluster kcuf to get them working , but they happen eventually

    Hi, I don't know if this is already mentioned but I have 2 suggestions for Raceroom features:

    1 - In DTM races : Start race with cold tires and after pitstop like the real DTM;
    2 - Multiplayer race with additional A.I. driver. (like in F1 201x games)

    I have tried the crew chief app of Mr Belowski, and there is no doubt that he did an amazing job. However, it's non-official program and the sim drivers have extra effort to make it work. I think a professional racing sim like R3E or iRacing should supply everything what a virtual driver needs without any additional apps / programs. But as long as R3E has other priorities in the pipeline, the https://forum.sector3studios.com/in...chief-version-4-auto-updating-and-shiny.2516/ is a very good temporary solution, that's for sure.

    Crew Chief is awesome and of course in an ideal world we would have this functionality built in to the game, but the reality is there are always limited resources in software development, unless you are a studio like Rockstar with near-infinite resources, pick-your-own-deadlines and questionable attitudes to employee welfare :p!

    I love the fact that sim racing games have such a wealth of creative 3rd party applications available. Personally I'm very happy to continue using Crew Chief for as long as it takes while any higher priority enhancements to R3E are worked on - it's just one of the several 3rd party applications I need to run when racing :):
    • Crew Chief
    • Simhub Dash Studio (better HUD / overlays)
    • FaceTrackNoIR (TrackIR emulation for Tobii eye tracking)
    • Deckboard (virtual button box)
    • Discord

    I don't see what the issue is. CC is brilliant as it is, if it were in the hands of S3 we would have to wait for updates and inevitably it wouldn't have become what it is. It's hardly a chore to use it. Download and click, it even launches the game....

    In real life, DTM never starts with cold tires, since they can do a warm up lap before the start, in order to get the tires and the brakes up to temperature.

    And the rule about cold tires after pitstops was introduced only in the 2018 season. The game features previous seasons only, when tire warmers were allowed.

    Well now, is it "slow and methodical" or "leaps and bounds"? o_O

    Oh dear.
    Yes, both, slow and mythodical for 4.5 years, and since Nov. 2017 it has come on leaps and bounds in comparison to previous years!
    Its not even the speed of it but how the game has changed and improved.

    I think we need more realistic setup options in the garage (sorry, but all the same options in every car is... Hmmm... Uhmmm) and more lively cockpits.

    This game in most servers are turning in to wreckfest. My goal is to learn good and recpectable driving, but it's quite impossible here! I'm not jet so good driver that I can participate in WTCR season, so maybe there should be some other championship series during all season like (classic touring, BTCC (british touring car championship, ETCC, V8 supercars) I'm sure that I not the only one! I wont buy single seaters or formulas, I'm more of touring car guy, so if You want me to buy new cars, think of some new paskages. The one thing I want to see in RaceRoom is BTCC package from 90's with iconic Volvo 850 estate, becauce those were Golden years of touring cars. I really don't care about small things like, visuals, skins, sounds, more or less it's all in good level!

    A one lap shootout quali session where every car gets the track to themselves would be nice for singleplayer
