Seems like I was going at 100mph on this non driving game ...

Quote from 42QUADRO42 :Ya şu baştaki harita onlinede falan fulden acılsa daha eylenceli daha cok kişi girer aynı yerde dönüp duruyoryuz

Or ...

What if that map at the beginning is online or something, and more people come in and we're spinning around in the same place?

Not sure what this has to do with post subject though?

Not sure how much use it would be, but look at this post HERE.

This should link to HERE, where you can change tracks, and get X and Y coordinates.

However, rather than these coordinates, for drag you may be better off knowing the node number (an imaginary line across the race track).

You could use an existing InSim called LFSLapper ("lapper") to get Zones (X and Y coordinates) or Nodes.

For an explanation on difference and how to use commands to find the Nodes or Zones, look at this post HERE.

Also, if you search the lapper section of the forum, you'll see that there is at least 1 drag script that can be used.

Few years ago now, but I made a drag layout on Blackwood - see HERE - which may give you an idea of how to arrange your drag strip.

My LFS is installed on my G:\ drive, which I use for data and games.

I've updated to Version 0.6V, re-registered, and Rift works fine.

I don't run as administrator.

Doesn't look like a dev issue to me.

Have you updated LFS but not re-registered?

Just tried with my Oculus Rift CV1, but wouldn't work until I'd re-registered after updating, then Shift-F4 into window mode.

Was default on single mode, and working when I set 3D mode.

If you are running as registered, then maybe try closing LFS totally, opening the Oculus software, then running LFS.

I didn't get any texture error messages before getting LFS running in 3D, or any now its working in 3D.

You're looking for a 'ghost lap', which is not currently available, even in paid (licensed) version.

This is part of the LFSLapper InSim, which is being used by the host server.

It appears when you press the space bar after an accident, so that you can reset your car to remove all damage.

Normally set to spectate anyone who resets car 3 times after joining the race track.

Fastest laps per car, along with top Drift scores, after 93 recorded laps ...



Server has now been closed, so these times and scores will remain unbeaten!

Because it's an Industrial Estate, not a race track Cool

And the route also has pedestrian crossings, cellular masts and a speed camera, which are other things that you would likely find in any Industrial Estate.

Video of 1st iteration of the layout...



Slight changes to street furniture, but route is same.

New layout on my Sin'rs server...



Course is approx. 2.45 miles / 3,950 meters.

Some times have already been set...



Good luck if you do decide to try set a time Thumbs up

Quote from MrJonttu :... you can tell me how I can improve ...

The main issue is that because you made the layout, and probably did good few laps trying it out, is that you know where the corners are and where they go. For everyone else, it's a case of guesswork and having good memory.

Use the turn and countdown marker boards. These type of boards are used in real tracks, where it's mainly professional race drivers using the tracks, so they're not some sort of 'cheat'.

Corners - very hard to make smooth turn corners. However, for outside of turn, there's no reason why you can't overlap fences, armco, barriers, etc, to get smoother turn ...



Your turn on left; mine on right.

And armco can be overlapped in a straight line. And if you use the Z function, nothing to stop you putting armco above other armco to get higher, and sometimes more realistic barrier.

Other than these (hopefully helpful) hints, the layout was fine Smile

Great to see that you've discovered the Autocross feature, and that you can now make your own layouts Smile

Some feedback on your layout, and on any future layouts.

Do you want to just place objects, or do you want to your layout to look like it would in real life?

In real life, there would be a duty of care, so lots of health & safety considerations.

Normally, you wouldn't start in middle of a street - especially when there's a large car park area nearby. The one to the right of your start point is great - off camber, and you can't quite see the road you have to turn into.

When you have pavements and lamp-posts, why place objects and signs on road, when you can use verges and lamp-posts and street signs?

Use more signs - especially for turns. You designed layout so you know which way to turn. From experience, people just load layout then drive. So therefore get lost, and bit frustrated.



Also, where you have a section where you can build up speed, followed by a turn, best to have countdown markers. It gives warning about big braking needed. Even a single marker is useful.

You were missing a barrier to stop people entering industrial car park on right hand side just before your waypoint.

I would have made spacing between your tyre barriers you used for chicane/slalom a bit bigger. You may have specified using MRT, but people will try other cars, and your chicane is bit tight.

Anyway, that's just my opinion.

Attached is Layout #5.

Same shape as #4, but I added a ramp section, to make it slightly more awkward to brake and line up for turn 8.

I know your graphix card won't be enough.

I have GTX1060 6Gb with HDMI connector, and that works ok.

Look HERE for good idea of what's required for VR.

One thing I didn't realise when I got Oculus Rift CV1, was that 3 x USB3.0 ports are required. I had to buy external powered 4xUSB3.0 hub for all the connections.

Quote from MicroSpecV :Those are very polished looking layouts! Neat annd tidy, love it. Big grin

Thanks.

I like doing layouts - especially with lots of detail - not just plonking down barriers, and saying 'there you go' Smile

Quote from mbutcher :Ever considered running a once-a-month event with races at a few of your layouts?

Running a race has never appealed to me for some reason - maybe it's the administration of it all.

But if you fancy doing it with one of my unused layouts, I could give you my Lockdown Layout #4.



It would be better for racing than the first 3 layouts, and this one includes a pit area.

These are layouts I'm not going to be putting on my server (Sin'rs), and I don't have races on my server - just single lap hotlaps.

Maybe I'll put #4 on my server at some time.

In that layout, I got rid of turns 8, 9 + 10 (the ones on other side of layout from start.
Sinanju's Lockdown Layouts 1, 2, 3 + 5 (keeping #4 for myself!)

The first 3 layouts I made during UK lockdown.

Layout tracks complete, but little in way of signage, and no 'street furniture'.

# 1


# 2


# 3


As you can see, layouts got less complicated with each version.

Just checked my LFS directory, and I can't find such a file.

Don't think tracks have config files.

Maybe BL1_.lyt?
