So does anybody know the Car Groups in AC trying to finish setting up my new dedicated

i agree with james may ... the world would be a better place had the allieds bombed the nürburgring
Is it just me who thinks the driving is too hard in AC, way harder than in reality? I've had around 30-50 laps around the ring, and never once come near crashing/spinning around. Mostly with Swift stage 2 from r4r, some normal swifts from rrc, 4 laps in a clio rs200 (6 more on coming thursday ), 4 laps in an old Audi A3t, 6 laps in a 93 m3. Driving with the same "safe" style in AC as I do irl, I can't seem to finish a lap without spinning around and crashing. Mostly around Schwedenkreuz, Fuchsröhre, and in the whole general area after the karussell. Just a bit careless with the lift off in a turn, or breaking while turning in at higher speed cause a spin. Sure you can feel the tendencies for this in reality too, but it seems just exaggerated in this game. Hard for the sake of "realism", because hard = realistic? You feel the cars wants to do this in LFS too, but it's possible to detect it and correct it, and it feels and responds in a much more realistic way.. I dunno.. Maybe it's just habit.

yes
It happens with every sim I think, there are many reasons, but in this case I think there is one more, which is the fact that this is a temporary Nords made by a random dude and the track quality sucks big time, you should be able to do better with the official laser scaned version.

No, you need to do some really stupid things in order to lose control while driving at 80% pace with standard street cars like Abarth 500, e30m3, e92m3, evora etc.
I have obtained a PDF file that is just brillient for anybody that is hosting a server. It is not my work, so I will take no credit for it, but it was a chap on AC forums Raijin.

I have also done a car list, easy to read so it's a simple cut and paste.

Hope this helps

AC is probably one of the easiest sims I've ever played. It's not hard for being hards sake. But all sims tend to be harder than reality because you have less feedback.

Problem with that is that those "classes" are not very balanced at best and not at all balanced in some cases. You can't just throw the cars together, manually checking RSR times to compare is the only real solution atm.
Quote from Matrixi :Geforce 337.88 "magic" drivers have been released, supposed to have up to 75%

Looking at the comparison graphs they provide themselves I wonder what went wrong with their calculator, probably especifically referring to CoH2. But thanks for making aware of this improved drivers, maybe my chip is going to like it.

// If the OpenGL bit is working correctly too. Had problems with the latest releases.

I agree. It looks like a quick "out of my mind" class list without any real comparision done. Most of them won't really work.
These new drivers are quite magical. I went from Metro Last Light being a massive stutterthon on the last drivers. New ones are smooth as silk with settings turned way up. They apparently helped games that were CPU limited but I see improvements even though my 4770 probably isn't CPU bound.
Quote from Storm_Cloud :It's a good placeholder until the full IOM TT Course is finished in GPL (still being worked on - last update was April) and then converted.

IOM - Isle of Man? There is talk about it on the AC forums, mostly about the 16km x 16km physics limitation.

Dundrod and Clady Circuit may fit into that square tho.

Actually I think he used Kunos own clasification (you can see these clases when modifying the grid in a vs AI race).
You can see the classes if you chose a car too, show all cars then there is a button for classes, can't remember what it was called.
I had an awesome race last night @ nurb Gp. GT3 cars, i was in the p4/5 and the 2 infront were in the z4.. For 6 laps it was flat out bumper to bumper.. I eventually passed when the lead z4 made a mistake.. (Going to upload the race tonight)

It was Bloody excellent! Lol

This was a list done on the AC Forum, not my list but thanks for letting me know. I will check the Live times

With out re-inventing the wheel per say Troy and Luchian, do you have a better idea of Car group list? I know it sounds like I am being lazy, but like I said, if somebody has done the work already.....why re-invent the wheel LOL

Cheers

Quote from Matrixi :Geforce 337.88 "magic" drivers have been released, supposed to have up to 75% system-wide performance increase with some DX11 games. Anyone tried them with AC yet?

http://www.geforce.com/whats-n ... 88-whql-watch-dog-drivers

Found the chance to download,made simple test by joining the track in practice mode at same settings,before 64FPS,after 65FPS,so I gained about 1% on my GeForce GT 635M and even that most likely because of system restart,pretty useless in my case...
Gained about 5% using desktop GTX470, not much but I am thankful for any extra FPS.

I think they mainly did the driver for Watch Dogs, but it improves other games, too. Not drastically, but it improves.
0.8.0 Nords is ready
He messed up the trees again.
