    Whenever I use this track the AI always slam themselves into the SAFER barrier off Turn 4, drive through the grass, and take out the field going through Turns 1-2. I have the default papy AI file if that makes any difference. I don't know what is causing this because I have made no changes to this track at all. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help with these issues.

    The lp file is messed up, let the track maker know.

    Specifically, it's the maxpanic.lp that's messed up. I made a quick one and haven't had that problem since.

    This fixed the problem of them driving through the grass, but they still slam the wall off of turn 4

    Try running with the ai percentage a little lower. That's all I can suggest without editing the track ini.

    Interesting. I've ran a hell of a lot of laps here and I have never seen this happen. I'll have to investigate. I don't know that the maxpanic is at fault as it's doing what is expected of it. It just looks silly when it's using it when it's not necessarily required to. Need to find out why they're running so high and smacking the wall, which is causing them to use the maxpanic when they don't need to.

    I would lean more towards a minrace.lp edit, or lower the AI_Line_Modifier in the track.ini

    If you turn on reflap and display the default maxpanic lp, it goes right through the grass.

    Indeed....that is intended.

    @JacobTB_14 Would you mind sharing your papy_ai for me to test with? I'm doing some testing and still not seeing them smack the wall. I believe I have the default but would like to make sure we're on the same playing field here.

    Also, what mod and opponent strength are you using? I know mod shouldn't have much affect but who knows.

    Working with Jacob we determined we're both using the same papy_ai.ini. I was able to find out that the issue is within the track.ini. There was a little oversight on our end and some of the GNS and CTS values were forgotten.
    Specifically the ai_squeeze_pcnt was too high in those series causing the AI to flow over the minrace too much, smacking the wall as a result. Here are some updated track.ini's for those experiencing the same issue.
