    With the new UI on the way, I would like to be able to see my starting position in the warm-up session before the race.
    Sometimes in our league, the grid needs to be edited by an admin. Mistakes can happen and a driver is put in the wrong position. We, the drivers, have no way of knowing if we are in the correct position until the race starts. When the race has started there is little time to do much with drivers in the incorrect position.

    A button or tab to view starting grid order of drivers in warm-up session would be very helpful.

    Also, if logged in as admin, to be able to move drivers up and down this list would be great too.

    cheers

    That would be nice. And moving drivers up and down by moving their names in the list with the mouse would be very convenient :)
    I dont understand why admins still need to do stuff by typing commands, it's 2017, come on S397...

    If your logged onto the server during warmup you can move people up and down with the mouse, highlight name & click the up or down arrow, done.
    Or use GridEdit for simple reverse grids

    Would you be talking about in game or dedicated server? I would like to be able to do this via the game, not just via the dedicated server. I could not see this in game, I've just looked.

    I'll also report a bug here. If an admin has edited the grid order with the dedicated server, then if we need to restart the warm-up session for what ever reason then a problem comes up.... the grid resets to how it was before the editing of the grid and has to be done again.

    You can use a batch file to reload the grid.

    For some reason the batch file did not work in our server, some drivers get moved, some others dont.
    Anyway.... enough with external solutions! Need this stuff in game, not plugins you must check forums to see if they exist/work/got updated;

    I forgot to say that it would be good to have what you ask for! Just trying to help meanwhile.

    The wish list items in this forum seem to go directly to the vertical file. I wonder what real changes will the new UI bring apart from the aesthetic part after one year.

    Add the ability to do this in single player as well. Bump someone back a few spots in a race event if they punted someone off the road or send the driver you don't like to the back of the grid because reasons.

    Would be a good way of simulating grid penalties if you're doing a modern F1 "career mode" or something.
