Okay. Brake gamma at 1.0 = much better. Had a quick play at lunch time (nipped home, early lunch), and Tatuus at Imola. Default setup apart from 15psi front tyres and 19psi rears to combat overheating the rears (which is main reason I get initial understeer, following by spinning out after a few laps. Lack of ability is the other factor).

Managed to do a 1m46.612. Was on for a 1m45.9 apparently, but screwed that lap up at Turn 8 into 9 (lost the rear braking whilst turning. ooops).

No idea if that's any good, or realistic, but I enjoyed doing it!!!
Slightly too much inside rear wheel wheelspin on power (differential settings). And the damping is clearly not great, but I'm useless at setting dampers.
Switched to linear brake curve too, much much better.

I love how realistic the motion blur makes the replays, almost reality.

Quote from atledreier :Well, with a similar setup they aren't THAT different. The base setups are VERY different, though.

Yup, I agree that they really aren't so different once you set up the AC version properly. The AC version just has that bit of extra grip and connected to the road feeling that all their cars have (and rightly so)

I like a lot about iRacing, but DK's physics have been weird in every sim he's ever made. iRacing is certainly getting a better feel in a lot of it's cars now, but it's taken forever to get to where they are, and where they are is still a long way off AC.

As far as I'm concerned when it comes to physics

Well of course you can setup a car to make it handle badly. What I'm saying is on AC it doesn't float on a surface of bullshit like it does on iR. When you go over a crest it doesn't take off at the back and have a weird oscillation in teh differential from left to right making it impossible to keep in a straight line.

Also on AC you can induce the understeer and oversteer when and where YOU want it, rather than your limited to drive it how it's possible because of the limitation of the physics, in the case of iRacing.

This I agree with but RF2 comes before Kaemmer.

But on that basis you should try Fórmula Truck and Game Stock Car 2013. They are on the 'must have' list for any hardcore sim enthusiast. If you value Heusinkveld as much as you say, you'll love them.
Can someone be assed to write what good laptimes on the different tracks and cars is? Need to have something to reach forr and know if I suck as much as I fear

Way ahead of you there Blue

I wish there were separate graphics config options for replays, I can live with 40fps in a replay and I wish I could I just leave things cranked up.

I do find the e30 feels like it bogs down too easily, I think I read the Kunos is looking into that. It steers really nicely, rolls and bounces in such a convincing way, and slides around nicely enough but it doesn't feel as powerful as it should, which I think is down to just too much traction from what are relatively skinny tyres.

Also if anyone has a nice Lotus49 setup that I could try I'd like to.
Yeah, Aris has managed to reproduce a bug that seems to be affecting a few cars including the E30. Expect a fix soon

As for the 49, just raise the power diff setting and lower the coast and preload.

I'm on 45/0/0 which is much better turn in, but it's a lot more wild exiting corners. Lots more fun but nowhere near as safe as default. Experiment a bit to see what suits your style. I've not changed anything else yet..
Just replicated e30 m3 in LFS, must do some comparison testing

Does anyone else find the Formula Abarth a bit too easy to over-correct? I've tried all sorts of wheel and car settings, maybe I'm just hopeless but I find it really hard to correct accurately, the steering feels floppy and I can't seem to cure that.

Viagra?

Sorry I'll get my coat once more.

The trending combo at #liveforspeed has been the 458 at Silverstone, with 1.11.9x by Huru on semi-slicks, and 1.12.3x (afaik) on road tires. Others will post the rest I am sure (or update me on these times ^^ )
Thanks! And that is with normal setup right?
Then I have something to work on

Well, I'm not even that hardly off-paced after driving 2 laps with the car then. 1.13.512 at first try, I was more entertained by the rest of the cars, especially the GT2. The Ferrari is a lot of fun to drive too, though.


EDIT: Someone mentioned its possible to turn off the slowdown thingy in an .ini file. Which one is it?
Race.ini (in documents folder)

[LAP_INVALIDATOR]
ALLOWED_TYRES_OUT=-1

4*

the best i can do is a 12.4

Tried driving in low temperature? 10 degrees can be pretty tricky when exiting a corner.
Look at all the AC fanboys defend their precious single file beta and beat up JackCY's opinion.
I just tried it and I have to say I am sort of surprised/pleased with this early access version. Runs nice @40-50 FPS on my laptop with the default video settings in HD resolution (quadro 3000M).

I like the no nonsense menu's in comparison with Rfactor2. There are of course far less options to configure but still... It "feels" intuitive. Also nice that every 'app' as they call it can be docked anywhere on the screen.. So you can have mini map on the dashboard for example.

What I also like is the enormously speed from the loading of cars and tracks. With Rfactor2 I need to wait 67 years, with AC it loads almost instantly.

So far I could only try keyboard, will do some laps with wheel later.

And BMW

If the updates and the amount of times I'm going to use it will increase, I will officially buy it *cough* ;-)
Thanks for the idea. I found it.

There are opinions, and there are outright lies and bullshit. The majority of JackCY's post fell into the second category.

Just buy it. The version you're running is already several patches behind what we have.

I'm no angel, but pirating stuff from indy developers really is very low.
