    I didn't do anything. All the credit needs to go to Gerald.

    Gerald, I think there's a bit of a problem.

    I am getting ready to race Montreal using weather from June 2, 1991. The WeatherTool insists the temperature in Montreal at 1 p.m. that day was -11C (12F). The weatherunderground site's hourly report says the temp at 1 p.m. that day was +11C (51.8F). Randomly, I selected Austin, Tx for Aug 1, 2015. Weatherunderground reports that the temp at 1 p.m. that day was 34C (94F). The weather tool says if was 19C (66F). I'm not sure RF2 uses the temperature, though.

    I would like to ask a question regarding rain intensity.

    If you cap rain intensity to, for example, 50%, does it mean that in continuous heavy raining condition the amount of water in track is half compared to 100% intensity?

    Or does it mean that the amount of water on track (hence grip) will be the same but it will take twice longer time to achieve that full wet state?

    Thanks for the reply...

    How you do to configure the rain density?

    The evaporation rate is so low that any appreciable amount of rain will end up fully soaking/wetting the track. So option 2.

    Thanks for confirming. It is what I supposed.
    Hence capping rain intensity is not very useful.

    I will make a wish so that the amount of water in track can be capped. At least until the rain system gets fixed by ISI if it ever does.

    The concept of 100 % rain on track should be replaced by water height which would have no "hard limit"

    I think that you are not taking in account the cars on the track.
    If there are 15 cars racing, the difference between cap or not the rain can be very big, because the cars "dry" the track

    Don't know what the issue is it was working fine in my old rF2 install?

    Historical weather is not working using Weatherunderground. The Weather Tool results do not match up with the data you get from using the Historical weather tab on the WU website and the weather doesn't change no matter what date you pick. Historical weather for Silverstone says it's always raining and 8 degrees celcius winter, spring, summer or fall. Every day, same weather same temperature.

    Anyone else noticed that the track temperature is now (Build 1052) fixed at 29 °C with realtime weather?

    From running it over the last week, it seems the track temperature is now fixed at whatever temperature you have set for the session start in the dedicated server weather options (set at 29C by default).

    I'm trying the new provider but I simply cannot find where 'ion' and 'lat' is. I followed where it said to go...
