    Thought may be good to have a central topic about the new dynamic weather maybe settings or presets you've found work or are just fun.

    There's seems to be many variations and lot of testing etc.

    Adding to this, what the first hotfix will address is the lack of proper rain probability when cloud levels are high but the starting track is set up dry.

    The only setting I have used so far is using clear with a 100% variability in custom event, rain will appear in a session along the route, been running it at x12 and x24 at the Nurburgring would be really good but the AI don't like T1 in the wet.
    Tried using the Custom setting which through all the session the weather never changed, also I used the standing water on track at 10/15% which over 2 session never disappeared, which I find odd.

    I didn't tried 0.7 yet but what is concerning me is that on the video below when the guy is driving at the drying looks like the car is rising a considerable amont of water spray (see the last minute).
    Is the spray effect already tune up with the amont water layer on a particular track spot?
    I think it was at previous versions. But again I may be missing something, maybe it's a fresh dry line. Anyway the amont of water that rear tyres are drainning looks a little off.

    Temperatures i think should can go to 0° c and for now 10° c is the minimun limit. 40° as a max temp is ok for europe but 10° think is a bit to high.

    In any case great implementation of dinamic weather and setting new standarts for simulation.

    Can the temps be set to random or do you have to designate a predetermined value?

    Keep in mind we simulate the weather that you can found on the tracks when the series is visiting.
    Sure you can find -10°C at the nurburgring, but not when the Blancpain is visiting.
    Why we don't give a wider range? The tyres (the real ones we simulate) are manufactured to work in a big temp range, but not extreme.

    @Aristotelis
    Let's say the sky is cloudy but it hasn't rained yet. Does the dynamic weather, regarding the transaction from dry to intense rain, have a precise transaction that goes from dry, light rain, heavy rain and then monsoon, or can it happen that from the cloudy sky and dry track you pass in a matter of a minute to an intense rain without intemediate stages (as often happens in reality)? In other words, can it happen to be surprised by an intense rain without first having a warning to light drops of rain?

    Practically, yes. Though intense rain requires some serious cloudlevels, but yes it's possible.

    Being more precise: I don't understand the question. Appearantly you think in weather card slots, or something like that?
    I suggest to have a look at the rain graphs in this post: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/...rating-multiplayer-esports-event-notes.55894/

    You see the gradients of dry -> rain are very different based on both the variability and the roll of a dice. The slope will linearily increase with the time multiplier, and higher variability settings can (and will) cause almost binary clear - thunderstorm conditions. So yes, the weather system can make a sharp transition within a few seconds, if that answers the question. The probability to see this is another story, except you really overdo the settings.

    First of all, congrats for the update, it is just awesome.

    Now a question about the dynamic weather that I believe hasn't been asked/answered. Is it possible that we have light rain in a part of the circuit while the other one is still dry?

    Is this something planned for the future? Just asking, I'm fine with both possible answers ;)

    But will it be possible? Not necessary at all but nice if not too much complicated to do or too much to handle


    EDIT: Ninja'd lol delete this if you want

    I don’t have the answer to that guys sorry. I know I would love to but right now as you can see from the changelog we are really trying hard to make ACC a great game and there plenty to do.
    Work won’t stop with v1.0 so... who knows but that’s not a promise

    Thank you very much for the honest answer, you guys are doing an awesome job. congratulate everyone in the office from all of us please!.

    Thanks for the answer, appreciate it. It would be a cherry on the top of the cake, but I'm already unable to handle the dynamic weather, so I can live without it :D

    It's great because it's exactly what happened to me yesterday on my first try on a costum race weekend. With these kind of settings I saw no changes.

    I have a proposal @Aristotelis , why not have another option in the weather, RANDOM, so you will not know what to expect (for no matter which type of game mode)?
    I mean Random Dynamic of course.
     
  20. MsportDAN

    Random. Would take all predictability away making it authentic
