You're supposed to start last of 40 cars, LOL!

Just do the thing already and stop making excesses! LOL!
Im just tinkering with it! Im not wasting 2 hours until the AI gets sorted out a little better.. But thanks for the tip on starting in the back.. I'd just turned qualifying "off" and it randomly selects your starting spot. No wonder you don't have issues with the AI.. You're chance to pass cars in your class are limited to crashes and pit road..x'D

Yep you must tell the mod to look for Talent files for them to work...
Now you tell me.. :confounded::p

In race setting you can change that to 40 and I did race cars in my class because it's all random, there were prototypes back there too. And once everyone pitted I was only racing cars in my class other then the ones I was passing or getting passed by the prototypes.

The two hours fly by, you hardly notice the time because you're trying to turn good constant laps for two hours instead of three or 10 laps.

Look in your race setting tap when you go to race weekend, there you will see a setting that says Random Start or something to that effect with a changeable number next to it, change that to 40. If you have to boot AI to get the desired field you want, you will move up the grid for the amount of AI you booted.

I think your AI problems stem partially form you not qualifying. I heard that in the ISI based sims, it is best to let the AI sort themselves out in Q, which means you will not have slow cars ahead of fast cars, which causes problems.

At least that is what I've read elsewhere........

I don't have problems letting the AI sort themselves out, it's when Im beside one (In a 2 wide/3 wide/10 rows deep) that they go nuts.. It's like the don't sense that you're there and just follow the line they want and push you off the track.. Then there's the ones that run into the back of you if you slow down to keep from hitting the guy ahead of you.. Just dumb ai, basically.. lol

Thanks Tigg! More "options".. :confounded:o_Ox'D

OK I just finished running it...set up my screen shot hit F12 and the game crashed...

I finished 37th, it showed me as DNF...I got wrecked on lap 1 by the GTD cars, was making good headway made it back up to 21st overall and then at lap 30 I pitted and got caught speeding off pit road, for a stop and go penalty....did that and then it was just driving around getting lapped by the P cars and slowly getting back thru the D cars but never saw the GTLM class cars again the entire race...

I felt that the ai wasn't really that bad, they don't know toi give you the line, the P cars lapping you with the Blue flag showing won't change their line no matter where you are...I got run off the track several times, decided to ignore the Blues and just make them earn the spot where I wanted them to go by, never gave up the line in the rc because they weren't really that much better than me. Never saw a Black for holding them up...Never saw Tigg, saw Mick early on and had a good battle with him in the rc, but was able to pull away off the Bus Stop.

No Image...crap...my knee and shoulder are smarting for that session...
