  1. 😄 Depends where you'd drive it, a lot of people would make noise complaints as these things really are excessively loud. So in some cities you'd get the cops or bylaw harassing you because of complaints. So putting on a muffler somewhere would be a good idea, even for yourself. Other than that might be ok. (remember not enough heat for winter, and no AC for the summer)
  2. This is largely independent of this input logic as the recorded data can be in the internal sim format used. And specific datagrams/packets can be saved for pad/keyboard if required. It's still an input that the game uses so it's an input it can record and play back in the format it desires.
  3. Anticheat Stage Verifier - (especially for eSports) I would like to suggest an automated system that can verify a specific run in an esports event as being either valid or suspicious to some level. The way it can work is to log both the game inputs and the vehicle position/attitude etc (outputs) each frame when people are doing esports events (or other events). Then when an organizer wishes to verify that no cheating took place in that run , they can execute the Stage Verifier which will: in the background play back the inputs/outputs as required and using the exact same setup/car/stage/weather/tyres see if the result is as expected. If the vehicle deviates too much from the expected path/velocity based on the built in physics/dynamics then flag the times where this occurred and let the organizer play back the video with a report of the deviation to judge if it is cheating. Essentially use the game's own simulation to check whether it would consider a specific "advanced ghost recording" as accurate. To put some icing on this you could draw on the stage the path that the recorded vehicle took, versus what the inputs would make the car do in an un-hacked/un-compromised game session. And more icing would be a graph area showing what the ghost did and what it should have done with those inputs.
  4. It's not really true that you can't livestream those events. You can just pick an event or stages that you live stream for the finals. It can all be done, just a little bit of planning. I wouldn't over think the marketing/finances of this personally as you're speculating a lot an worrying about things that is frankly their concern. Rally is supposed to be rally not F1 one shot qualifyings.
  5. Disagree, what I am saying is run it like a rally or number of rallies. Stop knocking people out. I dont see how this is massively expensive.
  6. I just think the rally competition should be following a lifelike rally championship format similar to Solberg World Cup that we had a few months ago. Where nobody is excluded from participating, but you can cover those who rise to the top naturally on live Airings towards the end of the competition. This way you'd have thousands of people driving, not getting fully cut until the end, and having to be consistent.
  7. 03.07.2020: Version 1.6 is out. New: Support added for DR 2.0 Scotland stages. Fixed issue with logging not working for some users. Moved “Reset Best Lap” menu item below all others to avoid accidental selection. RaceDepartment Link in first post

    Work on making the softs last, but yeah, still use softs and do your best, will be faster. If you just wanted to be safe you would have to go with hards , but it would cost you a lot!

    The Solberg World Cup

    It's not about a consensus. All the guys at the top as far as I am aware were using softs because they out perform the mediums and degrade at just very very slightly earlier than the mediums (to worn level). (The top 0.1% decide here, who are a very small minority) Overall the softs were faster on those 4 stages if you drove at near WR pace. The tyre tests that people have done on the forum here were not accurate to what was happening when testing the tyres in the wales stages. (most likely inconsistent drivers, not using data analysis to check themselves either)

    Probably many, however softs may not have been a bad choice. 🤔

    The Solberg World Cup

    My SS12, just trying to get to the end to keep my position in the championship Which ended up being a surprising P7 I really lost some pace after SS2 where I had a very unexpected moment pretty much on a line that I always take, which shot me into a log pile and over it, off the track. My car nor I were not the same after 😄 Also the degradation in SS12 was a bit of a shocker, hence why I also eased off another ~10s there. It was a very tough Cup, busy time, unfamiliar events... so glad to at least get a great result from it. 🙂

    ^ Not bad for going in relatively cold to the stages without that many hours in DR2! Meanwhile I just finished, provisional P5 in wales, P7 likely and P8 in championship should be secure AW YISS! Really took it steady in SS12 ... had nothing to gain by pushing there 😉

    Disappointing that P1 Championship prize has been expanded but nothing for the other spots. I guess the winner really does take it all.

    Yea, I ended up 16th after 2 issues but still P8 in championship which could end in P9 to P7 easily in Wales My run of SS12 which was very good with P9 stage time: You can see a bad line at the end of the big fast downhill left (after fast section, near 50s) where it tightens, had to use extra road and hit some posts to open it instead. Should have had a wider entry there to open up the 3/4 left tightens. Otherwise it was quite good with just a wiggle on a landing 🙂 Love this competition, but together with also having other responsibilities, the 1 week events really beat me up physically 😄

    My run in the final stage SS12 of New England, safe run as I had 1.8s to spare from my PB to move into 6th spot! Windshield damage is the standard clubs bug, I had no real damage after SS11
