Please forgive my ignorance. However, is it possible to set up a private multiplayer server on the same pc that you wish to play on? (Eg like LFS)
I tried the other night but when i connected to my own host NKP crashed.
I've been doing it when I do a LAN race/practice/mess around with my Girlfriend, you just haffto ensure the ports are forwarded correctly (as if you were hosting a public server) and just toss a password on it.
OMG it's a blast! With all the swooping medium speed momentum corners, camber changes, and bumpiness the car wants to be sideways everywhere. Everywhere. Off-throttle cornering = death! Keep your foot in it to keep it balanced. Go for some nice drifts through the double apexes.
Someone at RSC posted some vids of real FF's. It feels just like how that looks.
I'm tempted to try various Aosta variations with the F1600, feels great when you nail a corner real good. Alas, after about 500 km with it I'm still struggling to get 2 laps in a row without spinning on Prato short
Solid grid of Abarth action at Prato right now. Probably my first real go at an online race in NKP. Very good stuff, although the blue boxes are a bit distracting.
I'm enjoying the Abarth more and more despite not being too appreciative of WWD cars in general.
Y'know NKP feels somewhat reminiscent of iRacing in terms of how the tires feel around the limit as they bite. But in terms of overall dynamics, variability, and oversteerability its a bit more LFS. Best of both worlds.
No doubt LFS sounds are more informative, in netKar sometimes I have this really wrong feeling like something is missing, but I'm fine with it at least 90% of the time.
Since engine damage seems to be limited to overrevving (and random failures or so I heard) right now the amount of stress is not that useful. As for shifting, sequential is all is worth using and I'm not finding too hard to match revs on downshifts if that's what you mean.
But there's a lot space for improvements, that's for sure
I'm liking the '1600 a lot but being a right foot braker I find useful to stiffen the dampers one click to reduce lift off oversteer. It also makes the car overall easier to control when I lose it badly.
Well, I tried the F3... That's just insane! It's so bumpy, and that makes it so challenging, out of every corner.. Waaaaa. Also, the shadows of the trees make it feel so real, with the stoboscope lightning. :P
Well, the default setups aren't great and nobody's really made any F3 setups so far for 1.1 so it's kinda a crap shoot. The F2000 is a lot better to drive as of now as it's more common so there's setups made.
Attached is the setup that I like most for Donington. It's modded from Stu's Prato setup, but it drives really well and it's pretty stable. Extract to "My Documents/NetKar Pro/Setups/Formula2000"
