Yes, well, and no, I can not see them but I can submit times and see them in "Multiple Choice Hell" so something is for sure on the move.

I have been longing for this so I am very grateful, thanks.

:hat-tip:"

If you want to put set some benchmarks for those, I could add a new 'SvenRank' to the GPL Rank Tracker....

hmm.. could be the start of a fashion.. personalised ranks!

hello sven , another rank F2

with my friend, jonny'o we prepared a Carset for 65FD, to simulate the F2 of 1966, 1000cc 6 gears
replacing the Honda 65 in the carset with those of the f2 mod ( to have MS5 )...etc
there will be AI and season.ini : French F2 Championship 1966
with skins (the ferrari will be an alpine)

you must actived the 65FD
and choose "advanced training" (to have 6 Gears )

Has anyone else noticed that, when you open an F2 race or lap with GPLRA, the BT14 is called: "Ultragrip"? Just thought that was interesting after looking at the table.

Yes, GPLRA needs to be updated.  I've sent Martin the necessary info for both the F2 and 1969 Extra mods so hopefully he will put out an update.  He is no longer active in GPL and is busy with other stuff so he is being very kind by doing so.

Ok i'm gonna write it here ,

Its about the slipstream in the F2Mod hmmmmmmmm .
Am i the only one when racing against the AI that i have a big advantage versus the AI regards the slipstream ?
For example , at Le Mans on the long Mulsanne straight i'm far behind the AI , in no time i can come back behind the AI because of the slipstream , no problem with that :P  but at one moment i'm racing on the same track with no AI in front of me not even in the far distance and the first car is the Brabham BT23 he is 3/4 cars behind me , we come on the long long Mulsanne straight the brabham BT23 stay 3/4 cars behind me all the way :huh:
Is there a possibility to decrease the slipstream for the human car or can we speed-up the slipstream for the AI ?

greets svenvangent :wave:

I think the best solution would you redo the race.lp from one of your replays, as the AI will have the same path as you and are therefore often better placed for slipstream .

The AI and you do not have the same physics.

If the AI stays at a constant distance behind you it probably means that it has hit the upper speed limit that it is allowed to go at by the ini file and so it cannot close on you since you both are now travelling with the same speed, you at your drag limited speed and the AI at the settings limited speed.

The big problem with the AI is that they are not actually driving or racing you; they are following some fixed lines according to various rules that are put in about how fast they can go, how much grip they have, how quickly they can change speed and also according to instructions that let them change from one of these lines to a different one of these lines to try to pass. Depending on the track and how the AI lines were set up you might also find that the AI doesn't know that it is allowed to try to make a draft pass since it might not be getting the instruction that tells it that it is on a long straight and it can draft pass, so instead it is happy to sit behind you at a fixed distance because that is the "rule" that it is following since no one told it any different. The AI does not watch your driving and learn from it, it only follows rules about how it should behave if this or that happens.

The bottom line is that if you want to have a proper race then you have to race against real people. In some cases the AI can give you a good race and it can be quite convincing that you are in a "real" race, but you are still in the end only racing against cars that are just following a set of rules and instructions.
