    Thunderstorms have no part in racing and in most series are stopped before danger to life can occur.

    Not sure why just heavy rain is all we can have.

    Why storms. To show off the gfx?

    Why don't we chuck in tsunamis and earthquakes while we're at it eh.

    As I said before weather should be taken back to the days of race 07 simple with the features we have today dryline, aquaplaning etc

    Weather is already quite good. Just give more control over it, let us able to define certain limits in the weather variation and randomness both in SP and MP

    I tried that now. Manthey Porsche, Paul Ricard, Storm. First 2 laps i span out, after that, no worries anymore. I wasn't fast, but I think I could go a bit quicker still. 2:20s so far. I only took the wet default and raised the car by 5mm on front and rear. Worked fine and was pretty fun to drive.

    The main issue is not if it's drivable or not, the issue is first of all, a race in real life would be red flagged so it's not realistic and second of all seems there's a 98% chance you will get a thunderstorm during 98% of the duration of your race using dynamic weather which makes even less sense.
    It's the same thing as with a previous topic on this thread where setting starting race condition as random you have 98% chance of starting in a wet track, these are just not realistic scenarios at all.

    Also it goes really dark when it rains, which again is not real life..

    I will need to try it again in a sp session, possibly weather is much more sever in an mp session. I raised the car about 20mm lol and was coasting at less then half speed and it was just a boat on any line in that corner.

    I think, thats bull****, sorry. My server is set on random and we barely had thunderstorms so far. Not sure, if we even had one on either server.

    I tried both. No changes.

    May be related to this (lifted from 1.0.8 patch notes):

    - Server weather configuration now has more weight on the cloud level, configuring high cloud levels drastically improve the chances of rain (when dynamic weather is used).
    - Server weather configuration now uses rain level as a chance for a completely rainy weekend (when dynamic weather is used). Server admins can use both weatherRandomness and rain level to achieve different types of random rain experience.

    So generally sounds like more rain is now made more likely, and less chance of simply cloudy but dry conditions.

    Yes true. Random track conditions don't work well in offline mode. It should be done in three steps.
    1) Is the track wet or dry?
    2) If the track is wet, how wet is it?
    3) If the track is dry, start with a dry session

    So still hasn't been fixed in 1.1?

    Let's say I want to mimic the 2019 weather at Spa for a full 24h race weekend. How would I go about doing that? Is there anyway to set the weather to change at a specific interval?

    I ask because the game doesn't tell me what any of the settings do (though I suspect dynamic and variability will play a big part) could someone please explain to me what all of the settings do?

    And yes, I know there was a long red flag period during the race, but that's beside the point, I just want to get the "full" experience, but don't know how too?

    1st and 2nd quarter light to medium rain, 3rd quarter heavy rain and 4th quarter heavy to light rain/clouds with a lot of puddles.

    Is any of this possible (custom or singleplayer with bots) and what are the best settings to get something close to this, without the fear of 24h storm or just having clouds?

    I know you can select "real weather" in the championship mode, but that's not what I'm looking for, as I would be forced to complete several races.

    Apologies if my questions have already been answered, but the game doesn't give me enough information to begin with.

    What you're talking about here is actually the way rF2 does it (scripted weather divided in 4 parts) but not currently possible in ACC and I'd prefer it over the current dynamic weather system as I wouldn't need to worry about silly unrealistic thunderstorms.

    Your best bet at the moment is use dynamic weather and hope you don't end up with a 24H thunderstorm.

    The devs have said the weather will not be setup in weather slots. No issues with me. I like your idea to have an option to race a race in all modes whilst matching the real life weather for that event. If you say that option already exists in championship mode, idk as i dont play this mode, then it shouldn't be too difficult as they have already written the weather scripts.

    Please no weather slot system! I really like it as it is now. Weather has to be unpredictable in some way. I don‘t want to know how the weather will develop before starting a race.

    What I really would like is a general forecast for each session, this is something teams have in real life. Of course it's just a forecast and things could change when the actual session starts, but right now it happens that you do a qualy in dry and then load race and it's pouring. Not sure if it can be done though, but would be a nice touch.

    +1. Weekend and session forecast would be great, if possible.
