    Please make a random option to the different moods (time) of day, so that it changes randomly for every session / race!

    I mostly drive the same setting cause I always forget to change it in between the races..
    But it's even more important for the championships where you have to pick one, and stick with it for the whole championship!

    I have know idea of how hard it is to implement. :)
    But with this awesome mood feature, the random option is needed to truly have the chance to experience it!

    Is night racing very hard to implement?

    I would guess that night racing would take quite some time to get, if we'll ever get it..
    That would require a lot of graphical work.

    Personally, I would much rather see wether implemented than night racing.
    Like rain and fog etc.

    But i guess rain much harder to implement than night racing because it need complex wet condition physics.

    Yes, but I rather have racing in rain than night racing if I have to choose between the two.

    I don't find night racing that fun.

    yes! needs complex lighting for every track and car needs to then be optimized for low end machines and look good for those with beasts.

    I'd love that too. I think by the way that racing in the rain would be way more difficult than in the dark. Unless we get some scripted (ugh!) thing that happens constantly and with the same "slippery" values over and over...
    On the other side night time would have other things to get in consideration such volumetric lights and dynamic shadows and reflections... so yeah... I don't know what I'm talking about.
    :D:D

    Unless you don't damage your headlights, then you're in trouble! ;)
    And keeping distances is trickier in the dark.. :cool::eek::D

    Sorry Hep I meant "creating" night races, so coding and so forth for night racing would be less problematic (imo)

    Night races rarely happen outside of endurance series whereas wet races are a very common occurance. That's why wet conditions should be a priority over night racing.

    There's also the question of whether night racing is actually that fun, besides the novelty factor.

    Oh!
    Well that I won't debate about, which ever is harder to implement I leave to the devs. :)

    Made a championship in ADAC 2014 a week ago and have now started a DTM 2014 championship.
    So I thought I bump this thread up to highlight that we need a random time of day option, it's so hard to only pick one for the whole season!!.. . ;)
