please fixed setup competitions and congratulations for the idea of competition is really fun
I'm getting booted out from rfactor2... it says my steam Id is not being received.... Please help
Same problem on the Megane server..... help
someone enter while l was in the other day who had same , re tried and was able to join ?
.. and the attempting to connect problem comes back...
I am Stuck on Direct connect page.
Tried 4 times.
Will try later then give up.
So stalls on direct connect page for the Radicals and the Megane says it cant install mod.
I am subscribed to all on steam.
That is not cheating if the rules allow it. Just because F1 uses "two wheels inside white line" doesn't mean it's the only correct rule, and even F1 found it to be stupid so they decided to not follow it anywhere. For example some leagues like FSR allow curbs as part of track since forever as in those screenshots.
Maybe not cheating but un gentlemanry exploitation..
I only get as far as attempting direct connect and no further. Might be that I'm in Australia and therefore upside down? Can't hold my tongue in the right position
I'll try again later.
Another +1 for a Fixed Setup Comp in the future.
I'm seeing these two comps as test beds for Studio397, things will improve.
This isn't cricket
Sorry to disagree but both pictures are clear track cutting. The second one is especially flagrant.
I have to agree that F1 rules are stupid since they seem not to comply any rule. Charlie Whiting will be out this year. That should be relieving at least.
However, that's no excuse for the poor attention being given to track limits for official tracks.
You are right, although I personally can not agree. For me it is more important what the rule means than the rule itself. What I see in those screens is a clear attempt to cut the track as much as possible. Is it legal? Maybe @Christopher Elliott can clarify. For me it should not be because this will become a hotlap competition to a competition of who is able to cut more.
From FIA Appendix L, chapter IV:
"c) Drivers must use the track at all times. For the avoidance of
doubt, the white lines defining the track edges are considered
to be part of the track but the kerbs are not.
Should a car leave the track for any reason, and without
prejudice to 2(d) below, the driver may rejoin. However, this
may only be done when it is safe to do so and without gaining
any advantage. A driver will be judged to have left the track if
no part of the car remains in contact with the track.
d) Repetition of serious mistakes or the appearance of a lack of
control over the car (such as leaving the track) will be reported
to the Stewards and may entail the imposition of penalties up to
and including the exclusion of any driver concerned.
e) It is not permitted to drive any car unnecessarily slowly,
erratically or in a manner deemed potentially dangerous to
other drivers at any time."
Real life rule is simple, if you have all four wheels outside of the white line in qualifying (Hotlap Competition) and make your personal fastest lap it is DQ.
Don’t forget the small print where it states Ferrari will get special privileges to this rule lol
Where is this conversation going?
in the old days, we had to submit a replay to verify the lap. If four wheels left the racing surface, the lap was invalid. This, of course, was for a mere couple of dozen drivers in a league. I can't imagine anyone having the time to police every freakin' lap.
