    Hi @all,

    All the time im stumble over some Posts where People ask for Basic stuff and then we need to Link them into a Forum Topic where somewhere in a Post his Answer ist.

    What would you think if we all Build together a Wiki with all Basic to Advanced stuff? One Place we have all the needed Information about creating a Server / Configure it and how to make a good Car Setup.

    Who would be willing to write some Parts?

    1. The Devs from Kunos host the Wiki and allow the Community to write.
    2. We create a Wiki over https://gamepedia.com
    3. We host ourself a Wiki (I could do that)

    What do you think?


    Edit:
    We are now Hosting a MediaWiki instance on our own and building up a Wiki for ACC under www.acc-wiki.info. Feel free to Join and help us fill the Wiki with all "necessary" Infos.

    Depends on how much information the wiki is supposed to contain, I'm not sure there are that many pages that'd have to be created about ACC. Most of it is probably already stickied info in sections on this forum.

    Also, ideally that info should be available in the software itself. Not really into the idea of putting work in a wiki if and so long that is the case.

    As much Information as Possible from Hotkeys to how to create Liveries or perfect FFB with LUT File.

    Just searching for this stuff you get nuts in a Forum (in this Forum). Mot time when you use the Search you finde Threads where People talk since 50 Sites over this but you can't finde how it is really don. There should be the Wiki to get the correct Information without searching in Threads.

    Sure would be nice to have much Informations in the Game itselfs. But we know that is not gonna Happen.

    Do you know the Creator of the Document? The good thing on a Wiki-Software is you can make it Multilingual.

    I think it's a great idea, as already written in this post: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/acc-manual.60368/ the lack of documentation is becoming a big limit to the use of ACC, it is necessary however that the developers support us, to avoid working in duplicate.

    Sure they need to make Money... nothing is for free. So thats why my first Suggestion is to get hosted by Kunos. But i can also do the Job as you seen my "Test" Wiki.

    Just to let you know there is also a Tracking installed but its from me and Anonymised.

    Without going far, we could use a new dedicated section of this forum, perhaps with sub-threads for each chapter, for example.

    @max21 The benefit of a Wiki Software is that everyone can make changes to the Page. On a Forum there you have most times Problems to realize this because normally just the Topic Owner can make changes to the Post.

    And there are also other benefits. Like Translations, see changes, automatic creating of table of contents and so on.

    Sure, wiki is a better tool.
    It could be that the administrators of this forum can enable more users to modify a specific thread, thus obtaining both the control over the concession of those who can write (let's say more experienced users ...) and the possibility of updates by various users.

    Yes sure you can make this.

    But i think Setting up a real Wiki is the right way to do it. Also to handle the Translations is nice don on the Mediawiki (Wikipedia) Software.

    Informed Information on ACC would be welcomed. Do new users even know that a larger number means more air in the tires?

    That's a problem throughout the setup screen, tool tips would be more useful but a note in any wiki would be helpful too.

    I think a checklist would be good for people like me that get to excited to remember everything and just hit the track only to discover I didn't put enough fuel in, or forgot to set the pressure on my 2nd set of tyres.

    Will it have a section explaining how to set up and what can be set up in a online server?
