What If.... An Outrageous Calculation?

Today, 05:58 AM

Posted by Jens C. Lindblad in Motorsport Chat
The ever returning subject: Who is/was the best F1 driver ever?

It is impossible to state objectively, and not quantifiable of course, but the subject always comes up and there are several lists available on the net, and regularly published in magazines like Autosport, Motorsport etc. and although the same names crop up the lists rarely agree 100 %

So much has happened in the evolution of cars and tracks, safety, technology, and reliability since the inception of Formula 1 in 1950 that I just made up the following ridiculous calculation, because I got into an argument of Facebook on this very subject.

I suddenly had the thought that if the "greats" of F1 had all been able to enjoy a career lasting 308 races, the number of races contested by Michael Schumacher, what might the results table look like?

The table should not be taken entirely seriously because it does not take into account what would happen if these greats where able to race each other, for example, had Senna not died at Imola, what would the impact have been on the results and careers of Schumacher and Senna.

Anyway, the table for some of the greats, assuming they all took 308 starts looks like this:

Fangio; 51 starts: 144 wins and 30 x WDC(!)
Jim Clark; 72 starts: 106 wins and 8 x WDC
Jackie Stewart; 99 starts: 84 wins and 9 x WDC
Michael Schumacher; 308 starts: 91 wins and 7 x WDC
Alain Prost; 199 starts: 78 wins and 6 x WDC
Ayrton Senna; 161 starts: 78 wins and 5 x WDC

Sim Racing Cockpit Project

Yesterday, 10:32 AM

Posted by Pedro L Ramalho in Your rig or Manufacturer's stuff

Today I share with you the project I am developing for my sim racing cockpit.

I would like to have your oppinion and suggestions before I start buying the materials to build it.

It is an aluminium profile based sim racing cockpit, and the two main goals are: maximum adaptability and minimum investment.

I developed it fucused in having distance and angle regulations for almost everything, to permit the perfect driving position for me or for my 6 year old kid.

So, it has 12 different adjustment possibilities, like pedals plate angle and distance, wheel and shifter plate angle, height and distance, monitor height and distance, seat position, backrest position, angle and lenght, head rest position and overall lenght adjustment of the chassis for stowage when out of use (with half size).

Below I share with you some 3D screenshots of the drawing. What do you think? What would you do differently?

Thank you!

Drvc69.ini Fix For 69 X'tra

Yesterday, 09:02 AM

Posted by Gaiztor Servers in GPL-69 Mod

I have created this topic so no one misses a fix (especially important for SERVERS) made by Tommie (TvO) a couple of years ago.
The issue was initially reported by Cookie / UKGPL :thumbup: in the GPL Repository forum: 69xtra bug needs a fix.

Cookie said:

69x mod makes double driver numbers at a full grid!
We have full grids at UKGPL and troubles at several races.
This seems to make the server dizzy and gives lots of extra work when importing the results to the UKGPL database.

TvO said:

The server takes it's starting numbers from the AI lineup drvc69.ini. This file had both Jacky Ickx and Pedro Rodriguez with starting number 12. I've changed Ickx' number to 7, which was unused in the generic drvc69.ini.

The new drvc69.ini (www.grandprixlegends.co.nf/files/drvc69.ini) must be placed in the root Grand Prix Legends folder.
This fix is recommended for EVERY server hosting 69x, although the bug only occurs when the grid is already filled with 16 drivers or more.


P.S. According to Cookie's posts in another topic, this fix may also solve other issues when playing the mod offline (AI, crashes, etc.).

Daytona Mk And Flatstead

15 Feb 2018

Posted by lisha990 in Alternative GPL Track Database
Hi all!

On my way to complete my next total rank I realized that these two tracks are not working.
The installer of daytona mk doesn't work with windows 10 and the link to flatstead is dead :wacko:

[Media] Tag Cannot Handle Https Links To Youtube

15 Feb 2018

Posted by Gaizka López C. in Member Feedback

I could not find any other topic where this had been mentioned before.

I spent a lot of time the other day trying to post a youtube video. I did thousand combinations to try to get the video to show / play in the post instead of just having a link pointing to youtube. No matter what I did, it did not work until I noticed I was working with an https:// link...
As soon as I rewrote it as http://, it worked out of the box.

I think it would be good to know that currently this is a known limitation in the forums and that the way to solve it is to modify the parser of the [media] tag :unsure:

Kind regards,
