2013 Preseason tracks

Post by JohnW » Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:50 pm

I always like to use Imola for one of the preseason tracks. I would like a few suggestions for another one. I think Imola is normally a mid to high down force track. Maybe something more of a low to mid DF track would be appropriate ? Let me know what you want to use. It could be a current track we will race on, or something no used any longer.

If there were a Texas GP track available then that would be my suggestion.

Hmmm. Obviously, we need a Texas rFactor 1 for this year, so if that's a good one, that helps. I recall it has some pretty long straights. I'll try to give it a look.

One less issue. Now if the FIA would handle those TBA ones.

I know I can be bothersome, and even costly, but is it possible to find which tire wear settings are used in the official race?

I'm trying to setup for this season and something odd happens at 4x times wear on a Test track where I can now do a 2 stop race at Melbourne, but a practice race my tires are worn out much sooner. I turned down to 3x tire wear for the race with something that appears to be reasonable.

I don't have Imola track. I log onto the server and get booted for having the wrong car, and I'm wondering if possible, please, the Melbourne track can be put up on the server for testing, and if not then Malaysia, or China, or Bahrain, etc.

My times are 4 seconds off last years qualifying times at Melbourne and I'd like to put the McLaren closer to the standard of excellence if possible.

I did some searching on my computer and found all my Imola tracks are not good. I'll get a fresh download for that track shortly. For now, I just put Brazil back up so you folks can at least check for mismatches and get your feet wet.

So, just use last seasons F1 mod and Brazil, and you should be good. I'll post a link for Imola when I get it loaded. For now, the tire wear is set to "Normal" as I want to verify what the proper one will be. It should be exactly what we ran last season. I'm not planing on changing a thing. So there will be no surprises.

Oh, and I will need to edit the rotating car screen, as Josh had all our names at the bottom of the screen with our car choice. If you in the SAME car as last season, you're fine. If you've changed cars, you'll see last years name on that screen. It means NOTHING in the race, but you might be bothered by it, when you watch the car spin slowly around.
