    I have always wanted a raceroom server list but as far as I know there was never a Sector3 API which lists the server.

    Server list web site can be found on https://raceroom.justrace.net

    Admins can Download the app from https://www.justrace.net/downloads/ServerBroadcastInstall.exe

    So for fun, I am developing one and it should work fine. But for your server to be listed on it, you need to run a small app on your server. It does not really take any resources from your server except that it broadcasts the info of your server to a main server (located in Germany for now). This is a low cost server, so performance wise is not fast (as I dont want to pay a lot lol), but we'll see how it goes.

    This server list is web based, so you can see it on any device. I might add some extra stuff, like joining to the actual server etc, but for that I would need to add steam login to check if the user has the required content.

    I'm open to add more functionality as we go along. Currently testing it myself, but soon I would need interested people to test it before it goes live, so please get in touch and let me know if you would like to test it.

    All ideas to add more functionality to it are welcome.

    Cheers

    I don't if i can help you because i'm not realy a pc nerd.
    But if That's not a big problem, i like to test it.
    Maybe a reason for you to see of you can make it easy to use. :)
    An idea i have is to make it possible to set a time shedule to start the server automatic.
    I think that this might not a big deal now, because the server starts now even nobody is in the server after the last update

    So I have now deployed the ALPHA server list which can be found here

    https://raceroom.justrace.net

    Notes:
    1. More stuff will be added, this is just the initial functionality

    For your server to show, you need to install the below and keep it running. Port 9002 (or which ever you choose has to be accessible from internet)

    Download - https://www.justrace.net/downloads/ServerBroadcastInstall.exe

    upload_2019-4-25_15-49-14.png

    The statuses will tell you if there is a problem or not. If the status dont update, click on Restart.

    PS: If it asks you to RESTART SERVER OR PC - IGNORE IT

    Just wanted to let you know that the Search/Filter functionality is now fully functional (except Favorit and Owned Content which will come later on).

    Cheers

    Now with the latest version you can put in a link to your web site or any url you want so that user are able to click and go directly to your page for more info.

    Also added an option to auto start if OS reboots.

    Racing Community URL will be shown in lest as seen below

    You can also add a param to the server list so that only your servers are shown as below. Result will be as shown in image above.

    With next version, you will be able to:

    1. Choose the car (only your purchased content will show) and join server which will be launched through steam.

    2. Click on server and see more options

    Ah....and I will also try to add an option to see which users are online on the server....but maybe this with the version after the next one.

    While I do like the idea, I see a problem occuring with Multi-Class-Races. I think the scrolling to the desired car or even typing in the search bar (?) takes longer than just applying the class and then clicking onto the desired class like in R3E

    How about I first add a searchable listbox with classes defaulted to the first class in list (or Select All), then maybe another similar for cars defaulted to Select All, then you'd be presented with only liveries for the car you want. Or I can skip the 2nd listbox and just show liveries for the chosen class.

    I'm open to ideas, can implement what you guys feel is most user friendly.

    Guess that would work,

    But to also throw an idea into the pot, how about a Drop-down-Filter, on default "all classes" and then you could simply narrow the cars down by class.
    So the whole UI so far remains intact, including the search box, but added a drop-down-line above?

    Cheers mate...now all I need to add is the user login through Steam so that I can get the purchsed content. If users wont login into steam, they wont be able to join. Otherwise, I can show them all content, but then the server will reject the join if they wont have the car/track.

    What do you think?

    So this is how its coming along....

    User selects the Join Server button
    upload_2019-5-17_18-49-42.png

    Car classes are displayed to user for the selected server. Only the ones he/she purchased will show
    upload_2019-5-17_18-50-45.png

    User can filter for car classes too
    upload_2019-5-17_18-51-20.png

    Cars are displayed for the chosen class. User can also filter the cars or go back to classes
