1. Do you need support for Assetto Corsa Competizione? Please use the proper forum below and ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Logs" folder in your c:\users\*youruser*\AppData\Local\AC2\Saved. The "AppData" folder is hidden by default, check "Hidden items" in your Windows view properties. If you report a crash, ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Crashes" folder in the same directory.
  2. FOR ASSETTO CORSA COMPETIZIONE: If you report issues with saved games, please always zip and attach your entire User/Documents/Assetto Corsa Competizione/Savegame folder!
  3. If your game executable is missing, please add your entire Steam directory to the exceptions in your antivirus software, then run a Steam integrity check or reinstall the game altogether.

Dear devs any plan introducing safety car and pit animation?

  1. Even with the fastest ECU you should save fuel, since you don't go full throttle and full revs. It could only be a problem, when the clock would be stopped.

    BTW: Is there somewhere a suggestion how much fuel i need for the race?

    I mean, calculating how much laps been driven in a xx min race and then calculation how much fuel i (maybe) need, is kinda annoying.

    Eazy-E cruises down the street in his Saftey Car :D So if Kunos give us a "real" pace/saftey car it'd be awesome :)
    But nice idea thou

    Litres = Minutes * 2 is a safe rule of thumb.

    Damn, really?
    Recently I even thought they reviewed the fuel consumption with 1.0.7 for I felt like having too much fuel left by the end of the race. :confused:

    It would be a completely false and necessary feature because safety cars aren't necessary in sim racing. They serve an actual purpose in racing, if they didn't they wouldn't be there. In long races it wouldn't be too much of an issue but in short races all it would do is waste two or three laps, after 30 seconds the cars would be clear and you'd spend the next 5 minutes driving around at slow speed for no reason.

    A line on the road holding cars back for half a lap would achieve the same thing at a fraction of the expense in time and labour. I don't particularly want to spend what little time I have driving around in a traffic jam for no good reason.

    No offence. Just joking. Just watch my last lap :)

    Haha, well, my 2L/minute prediction lasted for the 10 minutes, better add a safety reserve for the final lap. :D

    Not only waste of time but it's also messing with the race for no good reason. It should be priority to minimize the influence of the safety car on the racing with tools like yellow flags, double yellow, slow zones, full course yellow.

    Yes a safety car, optional, would be great, it would add to the immersion and is relevant since it happens on every Blancpain race I have ever watched. Either we simulate or we don’t.

    I think Kunos can simulate an e-sport equivalent without all the work involved in putting an actual car on the road. The line in the road achieves everything your asking for without all the work.

    If e-sport is to be a new form of entertainment where people watch it the same way they'd watch any sport are they really going to want to sit through a safety car procedure that doesn't serve any purpose other than to create a false imposition on the drivers that do everything right.

    I'm not against yellow flags and slowing cars down around an accident but e-sport has benefits over the real world in that we don't need to waste time behind a safety car.

    I really think it's a feature that would get very little use. If it's easy to implement, then sure stick it in. If its more trouble than it's worth, I'm not going to miss it.

    I could see safety cars used in a manged races where there is someone driving the car and there are marshals to make sure everything's working as it should and it's a broadcast event, but I don't really trust AI to do it at this stage.

    If we simulate the safety car, we need to simulate the marshalls, tractors, cranes (including breakdowns of all three!). Maybe there's an e-sport sim to be a motorsport marshall or a crane operator?
    The quicker they clear the car the sooner the safety car can come in.

    As long as you can't beach yourself, can't destroy your car to the point it becomes undriveable and you can press ESC - Return to garage, then there's absolutely no need for a safety car.

    It could be a fun feature well into a long race but I can't see how it could be implemented except as a random occurrence, which would be a bit o_O
     
  20. Also, need penalty for breaching yellow flag! Instead of one crash, multiple causes by this thing.
