    Did it start out as wet though? Did they program in the weather, or just had it random?

    That's the way random should work. It looks like the highest average amount of days including rain is 10 in a month. But that doesn't mean there is a 1/3 chance of it raining with random weather, as just because there is rain in a day, doesn't mean it will rain at the specific times over a race distance.

    Basically the chance of rain is small, but the chance IS there.

    Oh I didn’t know it went off “real world” statistics! So it will be interesting indeed! Although I must say it will now turn into a bit of a lottery if it rains. The winner will be the one who guesses correctly both when to pit, and what tire to put on. The game does not forecast well (radar has become better lately, but still doesn’t give any clue as to inters or full wets).

    Typically a solid teal/light blue will be inters, dark blue will be wets. If it looks really patchy when zoomed all the way out, with multiple colours, likely to be torrential rain.

    The grip meter tells you what you got right now. The radar tells you (or attempts to) what’s coming! Crystal balls at the ready, who will pit at the right time, and switch onto the right tyre!

    Round 1: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - Dynamic Weather - Evening 18x Time - 20 Laps - 7/8


    [​IMG]



    WELCOME to Season 2 for Gran Turismo 7!!
    As always please take a couple minutes to read the following so you have an understanding of what is expected on race night.
    If you have any questions, or want clarification on any of the rules or regulations please ask!

    ROOM OPEN :
    Room captains may have practice rooms open beforehand but should have the official room up by 8:00pm AEST. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread know if you may be late. If all agree, the room may wait for you, Within reason. Please remember we have drivers from NZ, and later starts mean a much later night for them.


    QUALIFYING : 8:20 AEST for 10 mins.
    Room settings can now be changed via the lobby itself, therefore practice laps are able to be run prior to qualifying which will be run in ‘practice’.
    Once 10 mins of session time has elapsed, finish the lap you are on and park up off track.

    PITS ARE OPEN DURING QUALIFYING

    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEST

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS :
    This is up to the room host/captains. If there is a Disconnection (or cars stuck on grid) at race start, it is sporting to try to get them back in, which may mean a new room to be set up. I would suggest only having 1 restart if required due to DSC, due to having to set up the room from scratch and also having to set timed laps in order to set the grid. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....

    SIGHT ISSUES:
    Before qualifying, exit to lobby and spend 30 seconds in spectate mode, scroll through the list of drivers on track and make sure that you can see their car. If you can't see somebody (and they are confirmed as being on track), exit the lobby, re-join, and check again.Type the number of cars you can see in the lobby chat and cross check with other drivers to ensure clarity.


    TURN 1 LAP 1 :
    The old saying goes, you can’t win the race on lap 1, but you can definitely lose it. Please be mindful of other drivers on lap 1 coming into turn 1, and for that matter, the entire race. It can be very demoralizing to hot lap on your own for 45 minutes as I'm sure many of you are aware.


    TRACK LIMITS :
    As we are running with 'track limit penalties" OFF, we will run with our usual Raceonoz track limit regulations. This means you MUST have at least 2 wheels on the ripple strip OR white line that defines the track limit. If you do make a mistake and have to run outside the limits, be aware that you are not allowed to gain any advantage, position or time wise. Track Limits protests may be launched by any active driver in the race.


    CONTACT :
    Is to be avoided at all times..... If you make contact with someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Occasionally, Gran Turismo track limits may teleport a disadvantaged driver backwards on circuit to ‘reset’ them, if this occurs at the hand of another driver, IT IS EXPECTED that the driver at fault will wait and redress the position.
    Side by side 'rubbing' is racing is allowed and promoted within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room. For clarity surrounding racing room, please feel free to PM @Viperzed
    Show each other RESPECT! It is difficult enough to drive the car at the limit on your own, without someone squeezing you within a millimeter of the grass.
    So be patient and show respect to your fellow drivers.
    If you are redressing contact, please do so out of the way of other cars, off the racing line, or if there isn't much room, off track.

    PIT ENTRY/EXIT LINES :
    Pit Line Penalties are ON so you will be penalised in game if you cut any part of the entry or exit lines. Please be aware of cars exiting Eau Rouge/Radillion. They are expected to give you room.

    BLUE FLAGS :
    Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS :
    This season the steward will be @Viperzed. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let him know via a PM.
    DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE FORUM OR IN THE ROOM CHAT. There have been multiple incidents where the replays from drivers have been different, so its true that sometimes things are not as black and white as they may seem. You have until MIDNIGHT, Monday night to register your protest via PM. Stewards may ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captains to make any decision.

    SAVE YOUR REPLAY :
    If the room host can ask all drivers to save their replay would be good before exiting the room.....once they exit out and the option goes, it cant be retrieved!

    PARKING UP :
    If you are unable to continue to race, please enter the pits and leave your game paused without selecting tyres so that your car stays parked in the pits. Parking up off track activates yellow flags in the sector, and even though penalties are off, we have reports of penalties occurring for passes happening near the parked car. Quitting off track results in a sometimes race ending lag spike and may be punished in extreme scenarios.

    ATTENDANCE:
    Could all drivers please inform Room Captains or make a post on the division thread if they do not intend on racing on Sunday night, Room Captains/ Lobby Hosts are advised not to wait for anyone who has not communicated their intentions. If you do not post in your room thread or psn chat that you cannot attend, a spot may not be held for you for the following weeks race

    TRACK SPECIFIC - Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps:
    A shining light in ANY European calendar, Spa opens our season with our first ever Dynamic Time/Weather round. The standard length 45 minute race offers 9 time slots for weather to be implemented with the first of such being allocated to Dry, clear weather. The weather can turn nasty in the middle of the night so please do your best to keep it between the white lines and be considerate of other drivers if the heavens open.

    Be aware too of the dark stint of the race. Shadows have been playing up recently when you are in behind another car and you may find yourself blind.

    ** CANNOT START RACE INITIALISING BUG FIX **

    If your race does not start due to the dreaded "initialising" bug, follow this procedure:

    1. Get everyone on track and host hit pause. Identify any "duplicate" numbers in the driver list along the bottom of screen.

    2. Ask dupliacte numbered drivers to leave the lobby and delete temporary storage in option menu.

    3. Start a test race (invariably the race will now start no probs).

    4. Call red flag.

    5. Duplicate drivers now rejoin the lobby.

    6. Get everyone back out on track and hit pause to check driver list. All "duplicates" should now be resolved.

    7. Race should now start.

    Great stuff last night guys! Was awesome to play with random weather for the first time and get a feel for how the track develops over time etc.

    Following some valuable feedback we'll be making some changes across all divs to Refuel speed as well as Variable time speed. I'll be testing these settings throughout the week so stay tuned.
