    I figure there is a separate option for the recording for left and right? If not, I'm interested to learn how this works as well.

    You change the current path here,
    View attachment 6072

    Once you've selected which path you want to drive, then click 'Record a new best path'.

    You can also 'Name a new path', such as a 'Block' path which we highly recommend as the AI use that to defend position.

    Thanks, it would be great if we received some documentation about these sorts of things when there is some time to budget in ;)

    Thanks, I tried the Block path at Indy, it works well ! Although with the rTrainer they tend to block very late, it once resulted in me going into the grass and finishing upside down against the wall :D

    For the block path, I take it you record an entire lap at a highly defensive line?

    Exactly.
    On the straights I'm completely on the inside, and when turns 1 and 3 are coming, I go back to the racing line to take ideally the corner.

    Is there a way to have a middle lane for 3 wide starts (I tried with a path "middle"), or one for the slow cars (at Indy for example, using the warm up lane) ? I guess it's not (yet ? ;) ) possible

    BTW, it seems possible to have a fast path for a specific mod.
    I found in ISI's AIW files paths named : HISTORICF2_FAST, CLIO_FAST, C6R_FAST, etc...

    Yeah I think you set the line you want your drivers to follow in the talent file. I spotted this in the talent files recently and wondered what it referred to so thanks for posting this.

    Was wondering if I could ask a question of my own. Above there is mention to a 'block path'. I was wondering if you can define a similar path for overtaking?? So i.e. a line for them to follow when they try to make a pass. Or is the AI cars behaviour when trying to pass independent of the AIW.
