    Yup, a possible 105 drivers, so I'll need as many drivers as possible tomorrow evening to test and push the server towards that mark as @Minolin has challenged me to fill the server!

    Server opens at 7:30pm GMT, undecided on the SA limit as I need to strike a balance between drivers and safety, but I'll nail this down today and let everyone know what here asap.

    Would be nice to have the option to ghost people with low SA to avoid them causing issues, not sure if server admins can ghost cars manually?

    Can you only imagine how immersion breaking that would be? Especially for those that race in VR

    I join most of these big grids and I don't know what's more immersion breaking: some cars being ghosted (not visibly, mind) because they can't behave or pileup after pileup because some people with SA20 don't know their braking points and keep slamming in the back of others. It's the main reason why I usually opt to start from the back in these, the sheer carnage from the rookies is mind boggling at times.

    Well,for a start server #1 has never been below SA60 and as tomorrow's event is more of a test as such it should be treated as one...and if it all goes well and we get to the end of the race that's a bonus. :)

    This is where the rating system comes in. People who dont know how to race with others and how to brake in a pack shouldn't really be allowed in to these races until they do

    Hi there,

    I post here because I think there should be many people with big grid experience.

    I have a performance issue and I would like to understand what could cause this. I have read a lot the forum here and can't really find an explanation so far.

    I am racing VR (7700k and 1080ti) and I can maintain 80fps most of the time in MP.
    But above 25 cars on track the fps go down and I have strange stuttering. It can be smooth during 10sec and then stutters for no reasons.
    And whatever the graphic settings (low, no shadows, no mirrors...).

    We had a race with 40 cars with my private league and that was almost unplayable.
    What bothers me also is that the replay of this race on a 2d screen (HD resolution) is also with a lot of stutters. And same here, lowering the graphics don't solve the issue.
    And any replay with 20 cars is butter smooth.

    It seems that there is a bottleneck somewhere, like the high number of objects/poly to handle in the scene whatever the number to be drawn.

    Any help would be very welcome as I am about to leave my league :(

    Have you tried joining the ptc on the Oculus Home? There is a nasty performance issue in v12.0 of the Oculus software.

    OP has been updated to include the news Sunday event details and SA changes. :)

    Also, just for tonights #BiggerGrid test it'll be a 60 min race instead of the posted 90 /w an open pitstop window for compulsory tire change and no refuelling allowed. We'll take up the 90 minute Sunday races next week.

    We tried but failed!

    Ended up starting the race with 67 drivers in the end last night, so i'll be trying again in about a month or so for that 105 limit.

    This caused a row in my house last night. Wife working on her laptop on the computer desk refused to move at 7.30pm despite half day notice...

    A good gaming computer was laid to waste. Had been practising Suzuka all that day too. Next time for me.
