    Hi,
    so what I wish for this game is the possibility that you can adjust (and save) the camera position in the bonnet view in height, side, distance and inclination. This now offers many other simulations. I think this shouldn't be too much of a process for the programmers of this simulation.

    It's possible except saving it :< (unless there's some file trick i dont know)

    OK, can you explain to me how this works. The camera position should remain at least in the changed position for the race.

    But I have two more wishes for the simulation:
    1.) Custom Skin :)
    2.) A time-lapse for the qualification if only AI should be on the road.

    Sorry, but all camera position settings only refer to the cockpit view. I cannot change the bonnet view. Or is there a trick?

    under "cameras" bind "free flight camera" and every "camera~" move, turn, tilt

    Adding tyre flat spot warning/status like the one we get in AC for example

    @
    FeltHλt :
    Ok, after practicing it several times I found out. But for an application in the race this is only "conditionally usable". This can only be used for "beautiful pictures" in between, but otherwise rather less. I hope that the programmers will add good adjustment options for the views (similar to ACC).

    Go to steamapps\common\raceroom racing experience\Game\GameData\Cars
    then go to the car of your choice you need to edit nose_pivot.xml iirc

    <relativeTransform type="Matrix">{
    1.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 - Left right +
    0.00000000 1.00000000 0.00000000 0.67000003 - Up Down +
    0.00000000 0.00000000 1.00000000 -1.5 - Forward back +
    0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 1.00000000 }</relativeTransform>

    Edit the file, enter the game, use the car you edited at the fastest loading track you have, if your not happy, back to car track selection menu, minimise game and edit agan, reload car track, wash rinse and repeat till you are happy with your camera angles, you dont need to exit the game but do need to return to the car selection screen so the game reloads the files on track entry.

    Ok, that sounds good, I'll try it out soon :).
    But thank you for the detailed explanation.

    Which of these text values are there for the inclination
    ( pitch ) of the camera?

    Pitch is one of the middle three, the middle of the forward back row i think, trial and error mate, you`ll get it.

    Ok, I tested everything in peace. It works sensationally :). However, you have to approach the desired goal slowly and step by step. I hope that there are more fans that this guide can help. Thank you again for your effort.

    For some hefty coder it should even be possible to create some kind of generator maybe even with a preview in 3D :D
    But would be a bit over the top for just a handful of ppl actually need it.
