Honda said that if Stoner would ever come back to motogp, it would be with preparation...now he didn't train on the new bike and never raced on the two next tracks. They didn't want to deceive Stoner's fans they said.
Without changing complicated stuff, a few bumps (a la south city) here and there to make braking more challenging wouldn't hurt in my opinion, just enough to remove the smooth carpet feeling. Also had the feeling that the asphalt texture look a bit cartoony and too regular, but that's a matter of test. For the rest I like it!
Yeah, all credits to Dom, he has been dedicated as hell, the time he has spent to make and organise those leagues is just unbelievable...When he asked me to give him the means to organise all that stuff, I personally thought he would never have the patience and determination necessary to keep up a long time (specially with a community that was becoming increasingly negative and ungrateful), but I was wrong! He has been exemplar all the way through and I am grateful to have such a great asset in our team! Thank you Dom!
Thank you to all the drivers and friends who have supported us by participating and helping in all the stuff we've been organising from the R2R public servers with the dailycious series to GenR Leagues. It was an honour to meet you all and I'll keep this in my memory as my best gaming experience ever (and I've started gaming in 1982), mainly due to you guys! hope to see you soon, here or on an other platform!
I do agree, but when you consider how things are going at the moment in lfs it is already hard to keep league admins motivated to organise races, so I doubt this is the right period to request even more from them (most of us don't realise how much work it is and the little support they get to do it). Only a very few drivers are racing the leagues seriously/consistently and almost no one spend time to read the rules this days (which takes them so much time to write), those few drivers are the only reason why the admins still find some energy to organise and to maintain some kind of quality, but it is very frustrating for them when many drivers quit races and the numbers of participants drops half way through the seasons (the amount of sign ups don't even mean anything). And even if Victor give us a great league section in the forum, I don't see in what way it would improve teams and drivers motivations. The only reward league admins are looking for is to see motivated and dedicated participants, and only the addition of content will change this situation...Sadly there is not much they can do about that!
That said I can't talk for every league organisations, but I'll have a chat with GenR's members to see if someone want to dedicate some time for posting news to announce races and results (Dom has already too much to do), which are two things we don't do enough in my opinion.
I'm still the phase of getting use to the new forum, so I will not comment at this point in time, but there is something I miss and that is the ''new posts'' button being accessible from everywhere. I mean that when I read a post I always have to click the forum button to find the new posts button..maybe there is an easy fix for this?
Michael won the World Supersport Chamionship yesterday and to make it a perfect day his father Henk (GenR's sponsor) finished on the podium of the Europen Classic championship (with the same bike they won le Mans in 1984) at the 4h of Nurburgring.

Hehe looks like I had too much tears in my eyes to be able to post first...I am so proud of him, this was a really hard race where he could have avoided confrontation, but his will to be first was just too strong again, just awesome!!
I'll post a link for the race as soon as it is updated...itis a must watch!
Ok I've setup our public server for 20min quali and 10 laps races (added a few messages too), if you want longer races, just ask an admin! There is no password for the moment, plz do test that it works as expected and report here if you notice anything wrong, I'll password it and add its info to the first post when everything is ok!
Would there be drivers interested in having our public server setup for quali + race with the next GT1C race combo? to simulate the 20min quali (where many failed in the last race, including me) and maybe something like 10 laps race? or more if you want?...we could use the same password as the league servers if you want it to be limited, or it could remain fully public with an admin team (I think we could manage that).
