Ignition and Start (need a little update ?)

    Hi !

    First, I have to thank Kunos (thx so much) for this feature. But I wondering if would not be possible to make a little update because when you are in the car before you decide to push the "Ignition", the camera or the display onboard are already turned (On).

    It's not realistic or it's correct ?

    I suppose many features at this stage of the alpha build are placeholders or just unfinished. So I wouldn't expect something so minor to be updated until the final release if you ask me... ;)

    They way I see it is those things are on because electrics are already on and they are not switched on/off by pressing the ignition. I would really like to have a functional start up sequence in game, at least optional.

    Humm maybe.. But it's not te case in Iracing (Ferrari 488 gt3 for example), so I was wondering why in ACC (EA or not). "Ignition" turn on the car and "Start" start the engine.

    I understand that but it's not for my point of view a huge deal to fix that ( if it's still in WIP).
    Strange to add this features but not make this at 100%. Just a thought.

    Still, thx Kunos.

    You have a good point there.

    I think every race car has mandatory main power with kill switch.

    Here you can see Huracan has main power on. First driver tried to start it without ignition on.

    It's correct.

    Your main is on.

    I'm surprised no one has complained about the lack of fuel pump toggle switches while we are on this topic.

    Because it's not realistic in iRacing. You can see it in this video at 00:32. Displays are already on, but the car doesn't start because ignition is off :) He also has to hold the clutch and brake for the car to start, so it's basic in ACC as well.

    Even in my real car, I have two notches when I turn the key. First notch is the electrics, like radio and ventilation. The 2nd is the ignition, including the engine check lights and preheating the engine. Next turn is the starter.

    I'm about the rules in the Blancpain series, but in other series it's mandatory to turn off the engine in pits (at least if the car is being refueled).
    So I guess you shut off the engine by turning off the ignition yet leave the main power on.

    I think that's the reason (along with engineers working on the car, i.e. to program settings) for having ignition and main power for electronics by two different switches.

  12. Of course it sound logically but it would be really a nice to have. Not it would be that much important. Just a nice to have :)

    from the very limited experience I've had in race cars - they have (both) had separate ignition and starter - and the power could be on with the ignition off. The ignition isolates the engine (so it cannot run) but power is still on . (I guess in case you need to radio back for assistance - tell them you're ok after hitting the barrier... 'again' in my case in ACC!) - the starter switch energises the starter motor (and possibly some other ignition timing / mapping stuff to assist start).

    The function I want is auto ignition/starter for race sessions only.
    in practice and qualifying, pitstops and stalls I want to have to push the button.
    But when the car spawns on the grid for the start it should be running.
    Or there should be a start your engines sequence.
    I'm forever being crashed into because the cars not running. :mad:

    Yeah you don't have to much time to get the engine started before you have to start moving.:D:D

    Not an issue here, still have time for switching light and wiper on if needed, sometimes also do changes on TC.

    i would agree on this... especially if you take too long in setup menu...once you switch back AI is turning cars on and on their way imidietlly...leaving me sometimes not having time to turn the car on and then grid splits up..
