Sportscar Mod "Limping Back To Pitlane"
Posted Nov 14 2010 - 08:04 PM
I may have missed something but why does the Sportscar Mod have the cars limping back to pitlane at 40 mph. The other mods don't do this. I have been racing against the AI using non-GT made tracks. Specifically I have added a trackGT.ini to my westwood 1967 track for these cars using the lemans track fuel consumption. Also, I have found that the pit stalls need a minimum of 7.5m between them with these cars.

limp_disabled = 1 ; Don't allow AI to limp back after qualifying
This prevents the cars from limping back to the pits.
At all other tracks, you may be able to prevent this by adding that line to the track.ini file or by checking the Prevent AI Limp Back To Pits in GEM+.
A bug in GPL requires that for the trackGT.ini to be effective, you also have to have a drivGT.ini for that track. So just adding a trackGT.ini file to the track directory probably won't work. If you really feel you need to use a trackGT.ini file, copy the base drivGT.ini file into the track directory too.
The longest sports cars are 4.36 meters long while I think the '67 Honda was 4.30 meters long. So I can't explain why the pit stalls would have to be much longer.

Yes, I have a drivGT.ini in my track directory. I also saw the "disable limping to pits line" in trackGT.ini and removed it because I didn't like the cars to just disappear at the end. This tells me that everyone knows the cars will just go 40mph around the track so they put this line in.
It's no big deal, I was just wondering why this is happening in the sportscar mod when all other mods 65, 66, 69 all do a fast incomming lap and pit as usual. They don't go 40mph around the track on the incomming lap. Is this coded in the gplcgt.exe for a reason?

Seems to be connected to the GT mod. Is it related to the trackGT.ini ?
Thx for this great mod
