    Racing at x15 the night comes down with a crash, giving little time to adjust to the darkness. The night to day transition is less of a problem but it is also unrealistic. I'd like the transition to be scaled separately, something like RealRoad:
    Code:
        "RealRoadTimeScaleRace#":"Applies to any race session: -1=scaled with session length, 0=static, 0.1-0.9=slow, 1=normal, 2=2x, etc.",
    
    An alternative would be run at x1 (say) but be able to skip some hours of darkness.

    +1 from me. I’m pretty sure at some point a while ago S397 acknowledged this and it was on their list. As to where on that list is another question though.

    Before realistic clutch for me.

    I was in the same endurance race as Seven Smiles and it felt like someone turned the lights off a few at a time not a gradual sunset. Not a massive deal but would be nice to have a smooth transition for sunset / sunrise.

    "We want realistic clutch!"
    [drives cars that only need the clutch to get moving like GT3 cars]

    It would probably help the frames as well. My computer tanks when it tries to do it too quickly.
