The goal is to give old and new fans of this mod an opportunity to revisit and enjoy these cars, by having specific car(s) and track combinations to drive laps throughout different rounds. The idea is to also provide an stimulus to drive certain cars and discover new and fun tracks, either offline or online (server gracefully provided by Frank - follow the link here).
How does it work?
The premise is to have each of us drive laps at our leisure, for our entertainment. The hotlap aspect is to bring interaction between people where one can try competing with someone else's time, or look for an idea of how quick a lap should be with a certain car, or to get experience and even collect setups. Since there are no winners or losers, this is mostly run on the basis of trust. The series will be split into rounds where a car (or multiple cars) and track will be determined, along with how long the round will last. Entrants of each round are expected to abide by the following rules:
- Driving mode set to Simulation with damage level set to Realistic.
- Weather set to 80º (Fahrenheit, it's also 80 if you are in metric system due to a glitch) without wind. Each round will state if it's Clear or Cloudy.
- Auto-clutch is the only aid allowed for submissions, though you are welcome to practice with Ideal Racing Lines turned on.
- Gearbox shall be Sequential or H-Pattern. No Direct Selection.
- Grille tape must not exceed 75 or 80%
- Tracks must be downloaded from this link
- More information and downloads for Redline GTP can be found here (setups, liveries, etc)
To submit a valid lap, you must post a video or screenshot showing the laptime you submit, before the end of the round. Please remember to mention which car was used (for my sake when compiling submissions). Now, it is ok to post mentioning your lap without having an image or video at the time - so you don't have to wait for something to upload or if you feel it is just a provisional time. As long as you revisit your post and include the visual proof before the round closes, you will be ok. Though some of us may be running laps on Frank Mueller's server, we must still keep track of our own laps as the server won't keep a master list. I recommend simply saving the replay and getting a photo from there later.
That is about it. The point is to have fun driving cars we love in tracks we feel nostalgic, and hopefully discovering new and fun combinations. If you have suggestions, please send me a message. It is fine to have fun commentary in the topic such as talking about the track, car, or sharing setups, but things can get grossly sidetracked and in turn, make it messy or difficult to keep track of the submissions. Have fun!
