ACC Blog Special Events in Release 0.2

    Release 0.2 brings an update to the Special Events found in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
    Most importantly, the previous online leaderboard events will be frozen and sealed, and new ones will take their place, introducing brand new content and game features. We can only urge you to keep driving and trying your best in each event!

    In this second release, the events will be used to showcase the first-generation Bentley Continental GT3 and Misano World Circuit, both brand new additions to the world of Assetto Corsa.

    20181010160027_1_cropped.jpg

    The first event is a traditional Hotlap session in ideal conditions that is purposed to introduce users to this - in every sense - great car and a track that in its laserscanned form will be new for most simracers - weather seasoned or not.

    The second event will shake things up by introducing weather and track surface transition in a 20-minute Hotstint session, where tyre management will play a key role in ensuring a consistent stint on a fast-drying track.

    A new game mode: Hotlap Superpole

    The third Special Event will introduce a new game mode that builds on the real-world session sequence of the 24-hour race in the Blancpain GT Series. In its original format, Superpole is a two-lap qualifying shoot-out for the top 20 qualifiers. In this event, users will have two laps to prove their skills on the leaderboard starting on a dry track with some light rain in the mix. Make sure you choose the correct tyres before starting off! Which compound will be the best? We don’t know yet.

    The fourth event is once again centred around the weather: this quick race at Misano starts in the wet but the rain eases just enough to show a dry line forming: the resulting combination of a wet outside line, puddles and a quickly drying racing line can make racing rather tricky with varying levels of grip whichever line you might take.

    Very nice!!!

    Just a question : is it planned to have a perpetual leaderboard for each track / car?
    Not in special event of course, but in "practice" for example...

    It already exists, every combination in single player modes will have a permanent leaderboard, it is just not enabled yet. @Minolin will keep you updated about progress in this regard.

    Now the hype is real ! Wet conditions in events ! Dynamic wet conditions !

    Did alternative racing lines in the wet track make it to R2 ?

    Will the older events always be frozen? Choosing between many events was great in Assetto Corsa 1.

    My guess is the events are frozen for Early Access for testing purposes and you'll either have access to all special events all the time in the final game or they're something like weekly events. Or perhaps both.

    There is no dynamic wet line it is all simulated.

    Sorry.

    Perhaps not exactly best expression when I wrote "dynamic", but really meant that we have drying line.. I also expected that perhaps there will be alternative wet racing line, but seems that it is not yet the time for it. Drying line is quite fun, forming quite gently, wouldn't say that visualy it is very noticeable, but by grip and tire temps it is :D

    Really entertaining events in this build !

    Despite of what it seems to me like more simple FFB and physics (to be exact scary over the limit zone) than i R1, I am really struggling to perform well, ratings are contstantly dropping down, and progress is very messy. Mostly I blame the track, it is a bit like Poznan, I never liked Poznan :D

    I am confused about the Special Event 3, with the Lambo...
    We start in front of some orange cones (!) And I was expecting the session to finish after the 2nd quick lap (warm-up lap + 2) but, despite the fact the timer shows "end of session", nothing happen. I did an other lap before pressing escape and quit the session...

    That is SUPERPOLE
    In endurance racing (only i believe)
    top 20 from quali`s get in the Super Pole and they have 2 laps(out lap,Fast lap,Out lap,fast lap) and sesion is done..so basically you get 2 laps to make best time and that decides the first 10 rows of cars.

    somebody correct me if i am worng
     
  16. AC_RAF

    AC_RAF Hardcore Simmer

    Yes, I know what superpole is.
    The problem is that the session doesn't stop after the 2 laps. I have to press escape and quit the session...

    well 2nd lap is your cool down lap sort of? :D
    so after you go for that 3rd lap that is your 2nd fast lap i also get session done up in hud when i go on 3rd lap and than finish it and session is done then

    Actually it's supposed to be an out-lap, 2 consecutive fast laps and a cool-down lap.
    Perhaps you're just supposed to drive into the pits on the 4th lap. Haven't gotten to try on the game tho….not home yet :(

    There is no back to pits option yet so you have to complete the cool-down lap or wait for the overtime to end.

    At leat in a quick race after the race finishes there is a message in the bottom right saying to go to the pits or press pause to end the session. I guess it would be similar here.

    Edit: Ninja'd by @pankykapus :)

    Safe to assume the full cool down option is here to stay? Much better in VR and gives you an easy lap you can relax and look around and check out prety stuff :)
