    Hello everyone,

    After a few months of hard work, I'm presenting to you:


    The Setup Market is a sim racing setup sharing platform with a simple goal, provide a centralized setup database for the simracing community in order to encourage users with more knowledge and time to share their work.

    Browse the setups shared by the community.
    Just go on the website and download as many setups as you want. The interface allows you to filter the setups available in order to ease your research.

    Share your precious setups to the community.
    Simply create an account and start uploading your setups. You can be as precise as you want to be by adding best lap time, trim, and comments for your setup.

    Why? Since Assetto Corsa doesn't have a built-in setup sharing functionality (yet), and that going through dozens of forum posts isn't particularly fun, I've come up with this idea to facilitate the whole sharing setup process.

    I hope that you will love it and that it will enhance your Assetto Corsa experience.

    Peace and see you on track!

    Nice idea, now we just need a plugin in AC to be able to download a setup directly from the game ;)

    It would also be nice to put the best time directly on the list.

    Would it be okay to include a link to your site on our forum Golfwang?

    Yes that is exactly what I am aiming for, though it may take some time ;)

    Good idea, I'll think about that, thanks!

    Indeed, spread the word :)

    Thank you Golfwang, this could work very well. It would be good if you could upload the whole setup folder and it is placed in the appropriate place instead of uploading each and every one. Still I look forward to having a look about on how others set their cars up. Great idea and good luck. :)

    If you want your site to flourish you *NEED* a plugin. Indeed, you need a plugin that enables both uploading and downloading of setups. And you need a plugin with a clean interface. And you need a plugin that enables automatic downloading of setups, either from their a pre selected player, or from the fastest player.

    edit: uploaded my spa setup :)

    there's no need to be sarcastic. I am enthused by your website. It's exactly what AC needs. More variety. And every piece of development is useful. I'm just thinking what would really make your project stand out and above the rest.

    But sorry, didn't want to sound like a dick. Properly nice website. And beautifuly styled. :)

    edit: a quick bug report; the </br> tags seem to get stripped from the comments of setups. Or whatever happens, but line breaks don't get submitted. Also is there a way to edit the comments on existing uploads?

    Dont worry, I wasn't being serious a all. I completely agree on what your saying. But being a web developper, I was always going to go web in the first place :)

    I need (no pun intended!) to look at python doc for AC apps. That would be quite a challenge, but man that would be awesome!

    And yeah, no br in comment section. No fomatting at all for the moment. But thats something else to look into, thanks!

    Hope it will continue to evolve!

    My biggest fear is the way Assetto itself handles setup saving and sharing as I don't really experience it as user friendly. Maybe this helps!

    lol, yeah, easy to say, not that simple to accomplish :) But yes, the plugin should enable easy uploading / downloading. And also a way for people to rate the setups, in my experience the fastest times not always the best setups, for most people a stable (but maybe slower) setup will be better.

    Not sure about that automatic thing, personally I don't like when something downloads content to my PC without my confirmation. And I also think it would complexify the plugin for not that much in return.

    EDIT: one more thing, something that bothers me lately is that now with the multi-layout tracks we have the setups for different layouts all in one place, which is not the best as different layouts need different setups. I think this should be taken in account...

    Another thing that would be really a very handy thing is some sort of feedback system for the setups. So that users can comment and rate setups. It will make deciding which setup to download much easier.

    On the site I have separated each layout in order to filter by track layout instead of track only. But for the app, yes, that would be a problem. Unless every user follow a clear file naming convention...

    Yes I have thought about that, but I'm not sure about how to implement it. Since there is so much driving styles, a setup might be perfect for a driver but can also be undrivable for another one. I was thinking of a report bad/corrupted setup instead, want do you guys think? Or maybe a 'like' system?

    Nice initiative.
    Just registered and uploaded my last setup.
    The UI is very well made, congratulations.

  16. I certainly hope it will be picked up by the community ! But I agree it needs a plugin (fast) to gain some momentum :)

    I also like the fact you can view the setup details on the site. It is well presented too.

    Looking into making an app or website to share ghosts I remembered reading about your setup sharing website.
    Thought about allowing ghost files too?

    alittle digging into the .ghost files.. which are small ~500K
    viewing the hex right at the beginning the drivers name, track, and car name
    also ghost folder structure Assetto Corsa\GhostCar\<track> (which the .ghost has)
    Only thing I'm not sure of is time. which has to be there, no?

    Great idea, exactly what I wanted! There's several cars I just can't configure a proper setup for and this will help! It needs to be implemented in the game for sure.

    edit PS: A comment since I'm very much into web developing myself, the website looks really well made and modern, the UI is easy to navigate and looks refreshing. Good job.

    You can share setups with ptracker/stracker I think,I've never used but you can look into it

    Thanks so much guys for the feedback, I take good note of everything.

    First of all, I have fixed the no line feed in comments and have added the best lap time on the setups listing.

    As for the ghost laps, thats a great idea, its going on the TODO list (which is quite huge btw :D)

    I'll be doing my best to develop the project (and the app, eventually) as quick as I can. The good thing is I'm on a parental leave "vacation", let's hope my little boy leave me some time for coding :)

    In the mean time, don't hesitate to spread the word as much as you can!
