Discussion in 'Gran Turismo Sunday Night with Torque Tuition' started by Hatfield, Jul 29, 2022.
Gotta watch the puddles on the edges of the track, they'll yeet the car if you're not careful
My Memory of early gt5 rain was the racing line had to be used for traction. If you went off the racing line you were sliding every ware.
Is it similar I wonder.
it was a lovely few spins before i got it back straight and then got cleaned up by beats in the spray
No, It's much more advanced now, wet lines are viable, however the way the water pools on different parts of the circuit still needs to be paid close attention to
Tyre wear rate: x2
Fuel Consumption Rate: x2
Refuelling Speed: 20 Litre/sec
Also please see the below screenshots for the TOD for Round 1
That's going to make practise very interesting...
Was just thinking that everyone is going to have to buy wets and IMs. As hosts we need to make sure to not restrict them
you can't restrict them, but the mandatory medium will need to be turned off for le mans
Yeah. Also all rooms will be different. Not that we can compare between rooms anyhow.
Updated OP with teams for every driver
OP updated with tracks etc
Sorry I will be missing round 1 , still away in the caravan
Round 1: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - Dynamic Weather - Evening 18x Time - 20 Laps - 7/8
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....
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.
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.
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.
Wanting to clarify, is it 21 or 20 laps. OP says 20.
Also, normal SPA or 24hr SPA?
people would've practiced strategy around 20, so let's go with that.
It is the 24hr version
Nice overtake @spleece
Round 1 Results
There's definitely network packet loss going on or missing data. It's apparent in the audio and the pulsing of the car's position. If you listen to the beginning of the clip from Spleec's PoV you can hear as the car revs up that it's not a continuous increase of the engine sound. You often hear it when riding along with someone in spectator view.
Either lobbies are truly peer-to-peer or Sony/PD are scrimping on their content delivery network (CDN) this time around.
