Reserved Slots and extra slots

    You should also try to patch the pits in the circuits (there are already OSRW verisons) and give the opportunity to reserve slots as you can in other games.
    With the booking not working, because anyone after booking can use that slot if it is not already busy (always on servers without password).
    Slots that require access to a specific password (not the server).
    Es.
    // Maximum Clients
    set sv_maxclients "32"
    set sv_privateclients "10"
    // Private Client Slot Password
    set sv_privatePassword "kunosclient"

    You can assign specific slots to steam GUIDs. That means that only that user (or those users, if you assign multiple GUIDs to a single slot) can take that slot.
    I think that's the appropriate way to do it here. Unless I misunderstood your intention, of course. ;)

    But this can be done in "pickup_mode" if the server has 26 slots and 26 people enter when the non-reserved slots (no GUIDs) end the server does not block and also occupy the reserved ones (with GUID).

    In booking mode, instead of the guide without the guide or you can not enter PickupLockedEntryList on or with PickupLockedEntryList off you book and enter any car.

    It would be useful if the server either in "pickup" or in "Booking" reserved slots with a password as I have already shown the example above.

    Es.
    // Maximum Clients
    set sv_maxclients "32"
    set sv_privateclients "10"
    // Private Client Slot Password
    set sv_privatePassword "kunosclient"

    Virtually the server is free but arrived at 22 clients should no longer allow entry to those who do not enter the password for the reserved slots.
    This limit is convenient on Team servers who want to allow their riders to have reserved slots at all times.

    Don't think it works that way; the GUID's are only guidance when one of those players selects that car. A simplified example:

    [CAR_0]
    DRIVERNAME=Sven
    GUID=7################
    MODEL=lotus_elise_sc_s1

    [CAR_1]
    MODEL=ks_alfa_romeo_4c

    [CAR_2]
    MODEL=lotus_elise_sc_s1

    [CAR_3]
    DRIVERNAME=You
    GUID=7################
    MODEL=lotus_elise_sc_s1

    If I join AND choose the Lotus, I'll automatically take car 0 if it's not already taken (it's not reserved). If someone else takes a Lotus before me, I get car 2; also tested this. If You(!) join before me and take a Lotus, you'll get car 3. If you pick the Alfa, you'll get car 1 (and it's not specific to you, even though your GUID is on the list).

    You can also not reserve a slot for me where I can choose a car myself, as leaving the MODEL empty doesn't work, since the server has to know how many of each car you want on the server. That is actually what keeps your suggestion from working, but I of course have no idea how this works under AC's hood and if it's possible to change it without causing lots of other things to break; I assume that it can't be changed at this point.

    The recent LOCKED_ENTRY_LIST=1 still requires GUIDs; if there's no GUID entered for a specific slot, no-one can take it (just tested this as I thought it might be a possible solution).

    A possible solution that I can think of would be:

    [CAR_0]
    DRIVERNAME=Sven
    GUID=7################
    MODEL=lotus_elise_sc_s1
    PASSWORD=svenspassword

    No one can take my car without my personal password, but still, if I want the Alfa in the previous example, it would need another slot on the entry list, like:

    [CAR_1]
    DRIVERNAME=Sven
    GUID=7################
    MODEL=ks_alfa_romeo_4c
    PASSWORD=svenspassword

    The more cars and freedom you want to give your reserved players, the less (public) people can join.

    Himmo's suggestion of course also could work, but without reserving specific cars if there are more than one MODEL available.

    SvenUilhoorn even your solution would be excellent
    [CAR_0]
    DRIVERNAME=Sven
    GUID=7################
    MODEL=lotus_elise_sc_s1
    PASSWORD=svenspassword

    Well there you have it.
    Just add LOCKED_ENTRY_LIST=2 meaning that only the slots with non-empty GUID are locked.

    I don't see a necessity for anything of the rest.

    Does not work:
    LOCKED_ENTRY_LIST=2
    PICKUP_MODE_ENABLED=1

    One slot with "guid" and one without (for test max player 2)

    If you connect without "guid" the server refuses access

    Server "Cannot Join The Server: No Aivalable Slots"

    In booking mode i do not care so i did not try it.
    No one is booked to play on a free server.

    Of course it doesn't, because LOCKED_ENTRY_LIST=2 doesn't exist.
    It was a suggestion by me. Instead of cluttering the whole entry list with unrequired info. ;)
    Especially no need for user-specific passwords. Your GUID is your password.

    But since it is currently not implemented this way, it won't work.
    Sorry, if that was not clear.
