  1. Dream, if this happen. :);)

    I hope it's possible. I always asked for this feature.

    Is there any way of knowing if a server has wet or random weather from the server browser? Thanks.

    I use json validation frequently and they are always showing no errors. But I've never paid attention to the encoding and I haven't used advanced text editors before. I now have Notepad++. So I've copied the default files from my install directory (edited to suit the track and other information) saved it using UCS-2 LE BOM encoding and checked it with the json validator. I will run this on my server for a week and look for improvements.

    Thanks for your suggestions and advice, appreciate it.

    In the picture below I've marked the weather variability indicator with red circles.
    As you can see one of the server has no variability, other have different amounts.
    But I don't know if there is a chance to see if the track is wet or it's raining.

    Thanks for that explanation. Odd that it’s not labelled as anything on the server browser.

    Has there been any words on expanding the scope of the weather conditions by adding fog without the rain or having mist rise from a drying track? While the current set of scenarios is excellently implemented there are some in-betweens like those I described that seems to be left out, unless they are in and I have simply not encountered them yet that is.

    Does anyone else experience unpredictable weather conditions when setting up their server? On advice from various members in this forum including pankykapus from KS Dev Team I have been unable to provide any form of reliable weather variation settings for my league members. I am now simply removing any weather settings from my server until this component of the game is working somewhat reliably.

    My recent post explained how I wrote the event.json settings using Notepad++. I copied the default files from the game install directory and edited it to suit the track and other information. I then saved it using UCS-2 LE BOM encoding and checked it with the json validator. After a week of using these settings on my server and still experience frequent FLOODED tracks. While there is some good variation in the weather during different sessions the FLOODED conditions are still making a regular appearance.

    If these conditions are only experienced by me on my server and no one else, then I'll just simply stop using them and go back to fixed settings. If they are being experienced by other members (from reading previous posts in this thread and other threads on this site forums I believe my situation is not isolated to me alone) is there some way the Dev Team can gather additional information from members in a way to help improve this aspect of the game.

    Rather than just copy/paste my files (see below) I would be happy to provide my actual json files to anyone here who might be able to help and to double check the files are encoded correctly. You will see from the file that I have all three sessions on one day, this was suggested by pankykapus to provide better weather continuity between sessions.

    I also have seen flooded track with these settings:

    "cloudLevel": 0.7,
    "rain": 0.05,
    "weatherRandomness": 6,
    "simracerWeatherConditions": 1,


    I have a Q & R session, and I am just doing "/next" repeatedly to see what the weather does (no syntax errors, encoding is correct).

    0.05 rain is not 0.0 rain.

    It matters a lot, you're adding nearly maximum variation on a rain-biased preset (no matter how low the rain bias is, it's there) plus you have a high cloud bias to begin with.

    Is there any chance to set up rainy practice/qualifying sessions and dry/sunny race or the other way around?
    Maybe this has already been discussed, I am sorry if it is so.

    Not really, it's most of the time luck of the draw.

    Out of ten tiers in our league yesterday, only one of them had a race with a perfect 50:50 dry/wet split.

    Ok, but that is not what I am really looking for. I would like to have an option to define starting conditions for every single day of a race weekend or even better for each session.
  14. You can
  15. And soon it will be very easy to do ;)

    Ive always wondered what that was ment to represent. I thought it was a 'connection' indicator.

    What do you mean with „soon“?

    When could we see real time weather? It would be an amazing tool. I know is not easy, but maybe Kunos can allow through a plugin like in rFactor 2.
    You can do Endurance races following a radar to see what happen in real time. You can organize races and prepare a good setup based in the forecast

    Anything but please not the same weather scenario in every single session during a race weekend.
