ACC - Driver Swaps?

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by scott.stephens, Aug 5, 2018.

  1. We have seen in rF and iR the ability to do driver swaps with team members but cant do it (from what i know of) on AC.

    So will Driver Swaps be made available in ACC?

  3. Yes. (they are also possible in AC, or so I hear)
     
  4. No...or yes but too difficulty and You have to give to an other person Your steam account log in details...so I can say DriverSwap not available in AC.
     
  5. It is possible it is also available too :)
    Like you said very difficulty but its a start.
    I think ACC will provide this feature in a better way :)
     
  6. Say it all you want, doesn't make you any less wrong.

    Difficult = Not Possible

    Perfect.

    You have to give the server admin your steam id so they can set who shares which car, but that's publically available information any time you join any AC online session.

    what?
    No login details at all are requested.

    You only need to share your steam id, which doens't contain any secret...

    Driver Swaps won't be available. You gotta do the entire 24 hours of Spa on your own.

    That reminds me of a very young driver that last year, with all the stints he made combined, drove through 12 hours or so.

    Cant remember the name sadly :mad:

    That's the one. Thanks!

    He drove 14 hours. The max you can do. From what stuff are these people made?

    Felix Rosenqvist did about 11 hours in 2016 when they took 2nd place from pretty much last place on the grid. (All the Mercedes cars got a 5 minute stop and go penalty for a technical violation) also for AKKA ASP

    Rosenqvist was actually runner up to Marciello when Marciello won the F3 Euro title in 2012.

    As much as I would love to race 24h on my own (totally not realistic by the way) I can only imagine doing so by "saving" my session during mid-race, but I would much prefer to swap with a human driver online.

    Then comes the question, how will it be set up and who can I trust? Imagine you race for 3-4 hours and want to take a break (swap driver) and he immediately crash and totals your car on purpose?

    Perhaps it's wise to have both options 1) AI will take control when you want to stretch your legs or take a nap 2) allow a steam friend (or trusted peer) to take control over your vehicle?

    I mean there's no guarantee that the AI won't be penalized, damaged or crash your car, but at least it won't do it with a smile on its face when it burst into flames... :D

    If you want to have a good race with driver swaps, join a league. There's little you can do otherwise.

    At Le Mans the 24-hours the typical pro lineup used to be 2 guys only until the mi-1980s. Guys like Hurley Haywood or Bob Wollek were often engaged in two cars in case one would fail. Outside Le Mans in the 70's Wollek was sometimes actually racing with two different cars (for example a 935 and a 934) doing 2-3 hours stints in each of them.

    I am sure most today's professionals could drive much longer than they are allowed by the rules or the team organizations.

    I seem to recall that LFS had (well, still has, I guess) a perfectly functional driver-swap system. The new driver connects to the server (without selecting a car, as that's how LFS works - you only ever select a car after connecting) and then requests to take over the car of an existing driver who then has to accept the request for it to be enacted at the next pit stop. (Or maybe the existing driver has to select the new driver - I might be getting muddled up, but you get the idea.)
