PS4 Standard Drift Track Not Available

    Hey guys, PS4 player here. I'm not sure if it's just me, however, when I go to make a room online for drifting, I can't select the "Drift" track. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, hence is why I believe it's some sort of bug with 1.14. If anyone has any info that'd be great!

    This is no doubt because only race weekends can be selected, hence no option for Tourist either. Kunos are aware of Tourest issue so i will point this out too.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry about that - it's indeed because the settings weren't configured to allow non-race servers so tracks that aren't set-up for races aren't available. A genuine oversight on my part and it will be addressed in the next client-side update.

    Thanks for that!

    I would add something..

    -Please add option to make "timed races" .
    -option "closed setup"
    - Improve tyre wear degration (even on 200% it's to slow)
    - Improve the information screen from the lobby.... I configured 15. Min. Practice and qualy... And lobby information say 4 minutes practice and 25 minutes qualy meanwhile once you are on track the times are like you configured initially.

    Also, when the last player exited the lobby, it should automatically erase the lobby.....
    Because now the lobby stays in the list open and empty...

    Sorry for the bad English, don't really know how to explain it better.

    Thanks in advance for your time and effort to improve the game

    Hi there @Donnced2 ,

    This is another bug sadly - the client wasn't updating the correct variable so for the time being, until the next update, tyre wear rate is fixed at 100% server-side.

    I'll look in to this - likely it's a server-side issue which can be addressed without an update.

    There is a grace period until the instance times out and goes back to being available. Currently this is set to 10 minutes, but we will be monitoring the activity and tweaking it accordingly - as it's a server-side change it'll be easy for us to do.

    Well thanks! That was a fast reply :)

    Sure that first days of the new feature isn't easy for you guys also to make it al run properly.

    But I'm pleased that the team is working to improve and get all things right :)
    Keep up the good work!

    And hopefully you take in consideration the to settings I've requested and are in the PC version (fixed / closed setup & time races) for the next version update.

    Have a nice day

    Would it be possible to allow us to reconfigure existing empty rooms or delete them? I ask this because since V1.14 dropped i only managed to create my own room twice in over 30 hours or basically untill midnight last night (Thursday ) and many have had this frustrating issue. I presume this is because the servers are at full capacity? If so hence why allowing us to reconfigure empty rooms would be a solution if that's possible. a

    Also allow me to make a suggestion regarding settings. In order to select Japan and tourist there has to be a non race option or just practice session, could you add a Hotlap session too? (without practice and race) This would draw a competition and competitors to that room too which wouldn't be possible to draw in a non Hotlap specific settings.

    Oh one more very important must have setting, when allowing driver AIDS such as Stability Control, i want and need the option to allow others to use it but not use it myself. My friends need stability Control but i dont enjoy it at all but I'm forced to use it. It is also currently set to off-on rather than a percentage like offline. Could we get complete control on these please? These fixes and additions would make the lobbies perfect.

    Thans for all your hard work in bringing this update to us.

    Unfortunately the current architecture doesn't allow for reconfiguring empty ones. As it stands what we can try to do is increase the amount of available instances across the board and reduce the time it takes until an empty instance is freed. Which is basically what we are gradually doing (it takes some time to get such changes to propagate because the servers aren't managed directly by us - so bare with us!).

    Well - a hotlap session is essentially a qualifying session. One could run a long quali. But we'll see if we can stretch the time limits and give some more flexibility in the ways the server can be configured remotely. One thing at a time.

    OK - this is a matter of non-clear UI and the omission of allowing the player to config all the assists before going online. Essentially the "on/off" means "allow/disallow" - if you have set it in your assists when playing a different (offline) mode to "50%" and the server allows it (it's set to "on") then you will use the same setting you had when playing offline. I'll make a note to allow modifying the percentage before going online and also making the "on"/"off" to "allow"/"disallow" so it's clearer.

    Firstly, thank you very much for replying, it is much appreciated.

    I had feared that would be the case regarding reconfiguring, but thanks for looking into a solution.
    I hadn't thought of that, I suppose one could just set zero minutes for practice and a long quali and title the room "Hotlap". Problem solved there.

    Woah thanks for answering this in particular, I really hadn't considered this. Tonight I managed to create some rooms and tried this and thankfully it works as I tended. I had session on Highlands with a friend who needs Stability control whilst I use all aids off and we had a great session. This has pretty much made the update perfect for me now I know this, well at least when the servers have normalised.

    Thanks again for replying and have a great weekend, you guys/gals deserve a good break.

    Might as well ask this here as I've just come across the issue. Is it possible to re add the kick option? Had a couple of annoying rammers in an open lobby I created who were bugging everyone in my party. Also would it be possible to give control of the room to the room creator? Otherwise the room creator could get kicked, and room creator should be able to skip session or restart without need a vote from players to which they can not communicate with.

    Could we also have an option to disable "driving wrong way warning" as many people like to just cruise with road laws and with the highlands now available many of these rooms are popping up but they can't create traffic.

    These lobbies will be perfect with just a few additions.
