    perhaps Steam could be brought in to come up with a way so that the user has to 'allow' the download. Pushing updates ensures everyone are all on the same version, but it does create havoc. I'm guessing there are some kind of logs that show how many people log on with rF2 and at what times. That could reveal a hole when 'most' users are not running.
    @Iagg, you may not race on weekends, but you can bet there are plenty of weekend leagues and casual pick-up racers using the free time on the weekend to race. What works for one, rarely works for all.

    And that is the reason to say that everyday will be a bad day for someone.
    There are a lot of races on weekend but it's the same with the races on weekdays.
    The solution to this problem shouldn't be, to choose what is good for some people, knowing that is bad for the rest.
    Could be possible to to have the option of installing the version of the server that you are gonig to connect.
    Or update depending of the place you live.
    I don't know...

    Maybe the use of this option in Steam could be of some help.

    Yep, on week days you know leagues run at night. On weekend they run all day long and that's when endurance leagues happen, they are the "most fragile" on these updates.
    We shouldn't depend on Steam for that anyway, rF2 already have the tools to prevent that (since it saves previous versions of cars), for some reason it isn't working...

    This does not work for 2 reasons
    #1 this update is for the game itself, not workshop, workshop items are downloaded at the time they are released or at the time ur region server gets it
    #2 even if u check this option the game will have a warning alerting u about updates and if I remember right Steam wont let u start that game without updating it, not sure if u can play it in offline mode after it warns u about an update

    1st gear on the Porsche GTE in low df mode is about 10kph short.

    In real life LM the Porsche is able to hit 130KPH in 1st gear well below redline. All the other gears are within 2kph (so great job there S397!)

    I'd hope this can be fixed pretty easily.

    HI
    I tested the Suspension damping for the RSR, and I think there is a bug in the model. The damper settings have almost no effect. I run with 200kmh over the vey same step, and in the Attachement is the damper / Suspension movement for 2 damper Settings, all on 1 (MIN) or all on 16 (MAX), both slow and fast. There is no real effect, the RSR is oscillating way too much even on highest damping. This is probably the cause why you hear the tires scrap on/off quite often (trr..ttrr..trrr) going through turns, and it´s not good for grip btw.
    The BMW GTE Shows more damping on hihgest setting but is still too low. The mcl650 from 1st gt3 pack shows a very fine response on damper changes even to a Level of overdamping on highest settings.

    Are there any known problems, with creating or updating a existing cmp modfile based on the most recent versions of the Endurance Cars? After the last update and the problems we got with our league skinmod, i tried creating a new version based on the latest versions, i can´t create a package with the 1.62 or 1.63 as "update from" version.
    Anyone an idea, i´m not the biggest crack in creating the mods and so on, but till the latest versions it worked with no problems and i did everything like the last times

    Really quick, not sure if it was just me. I only got one really quick session in and didn't investigate it properly

    Is the 3rd party skins for these mods broken again with this latest update? All skins on track were a default skin, but in the spinner, it was ok. Just wondering if it was just me. The new LeMans track, and I had 2018 IMSA skins for S397 and other mods merged in. It was just the S397 ones that broke.

    I'll investigate tonight and try and get more info.

    BoP applies to cars, not tracks. If it's being slowed because it's faster, that speed difference may show on certains types of tracks more than others, so the BoP will be more noticeable on those tracks as well. But overall it's just a change to the car.
