    Just because I like interesting facts, I thought I read that more recourses were being put on the UI development itself again (correct me if I am wrong). How much % of all work currently is bound to the competition system, compared to the rest of the sim?

    Probably a hard to answer question, so would totally get if it wasn't answered :D

    Firstly, hello

    I have a question more on the "developer" side. Are there any plans to include developers in the community to help with some of the devs you may not have the capacity to do? For example, for the web, etc.... Even though this is a free service.

    Also,Is there a system that applies the real weather in the game and/or on the CS? With the air and track temperature changing according to the real conditions, etc.... Because this is one of the shortcomings of the weather plugin, that the temperature of the track does not change

    Finally, as an idea, what could be great is a pop up that appears if you are in solo practice to say that the CS you are registered start in 5 minutes.

    True F1 is expensive but i think it would be a amazing content for rf2.
    AC got ferrari F1 2017 so it is not too much of a stretch.
    I would also love a hybrid lmp1.

    Lastly, i didn't realise that question are only supposed to be CS related.
    My bad.

    Little joke with some of the Discord members : When will a new message from Marcel pop? :D More seriously, Could the CS be a place to test different components whether it is a vehicle, etc.? (Full-scale beta tests)

    Formula E competition - Is it worth the wait? If so, when?

    Some content that we saw on the CS already is quite "outdated". Is there a possibility that this stuff gets updated one day? Cars like the Skip Barber or tracks like Malaysia would be great for for short races where you can just jump into the car and have some fun.
    You guys have updated some of the tracks to PBR already and I would really like to know if you continue this work to bring us even more beautiful looking content.

    Is there a possibility that in the new UI you can separate the original content of the game and the MOD's? Because as I have downloaded many MOD´s, I don’t know what was original with Rfactor 2 and what’s not!

    Could you in the future add competitive servers like Raceroom did? I thought it was a cool idea and it has attracted a lot of people to run every day in the simulator.

    Thanks for your questions so far folks - many of them have been added to the list for the blog tomorrow, however can I please remind you to keep the questions specific to the Competition System itself, rather than the broader topic of rF2 and content etc?

    Many thanks - keep 'em coming :D

    Is it intended that the number of participants in the split will also influence the points? If the split has only 3 participants, I will be the last to finish third and receive many points. In a split with 20 participants, third place is logically worth more, but I currently receive the same number of points.

    1)
    Do you have a plan for a big series (or collaboration) of 3 to 6 months like VEC (Virtual Endurance Championship) or GTR24h?
    If it is realized, please consider the time difference with Asia / Oceania. I think the number of entries from those region will increase.

    2)
    Do you have any plans to create a page that visualizes race results and rating fluctuations?

    That's not how it works. All players who participate in an event (multiple races at the same track) are ranked based on their results, who they raced against (, ...) and then have points awarded based on that ranking.

    You don't receive points from each race.

    I know I don't get more points by running more races, but here's the thing:

    You race in a race with only three participants and finish last, then you get the full number of points as third.

    If someone takes part in a race within the same competition on the same track where there are 20 participants, he receives the same number of points as third, which is unfair in a direct comparison.

    Something is not working correctly, in the last races only between three and four pilots participate, if there is not a minimum number of pilots, for example 10, it becomes increasingly boring and people stop participating. It started with a lot of strength and motivation but now it is getting worse. What do you think about this and what solutions do you propose in the competition system so that the motivation is more numerous? ...

    I’m not sure what this ?

    is it a range of different series that have a set batch of suitable tracks ? Each keeping sane car similar to iracing

    EG server selection. :

    f1 style server
    Formula e server
    Historic 66 f3’s server

    & so on ?

    also when people leave the server does their best time stay up on the list or still vanish
