  1. Let me know if I'm not allowed to post here and I'll remove right away! Reserving a spot for when my Stream highlights go live tomorrow, I was doing DISGUSTING amounts of fuel saving to try and not stop twice! Link will go live at Noon CST 9/16/20 : https://youtu.be/lZOh34tZgSg
  2. No need to thank me! I got to learn a little bit and the changes were incredibly easy to make once I learned to get around the file encryption!
  3. I know this might be a really dumb question but will we be allowed to Speak English in the main German channel over Comms if we're flying Axis?
  4. Checking on the Modding forum I learn from. Apparently Content Manager has a de-encryption feature, but it's not showing up for me when working on the cars. Will keep looking into it. Edit: I have the files unpacked and I'm working on new league editions now. Will upload when finished as .rar archives so people can just drag and drop them to install. I have left the fuel consumption the way it is to promote multiple strategies/stop amounts based on consumption differences between drivers. The Pit stop times have changed, though. I've reduced the fueling time from 1.7 Sec/L to 0.13 Sec/L in order to reduce the fueling time to within normal parameters of the real life cars. Tire change has also been reduced to 9 seconds. I took these times based off watching the 2019 Indy 500 Pit stop competition for tires and the 2020 In-race stops for fuel. apex_indycar_indy.7z apex_indycar_oval.7z apex_indycar_road.7z apex_indycar_soval.7z
  5. Affirm, I'll start watching some Indy races and timing pit stops today, hopefully will have it by later this week! Edit 3: See post bellow for updated versions - they should be a direct drag-and-drop for those using content manager mod launcher. All skins as of 09/15/2020 installed and fuel/tire change rates corrected!
  6. So me and Scotty (2Old4Forza) were discussing the cars after race and the fueling issue. And we both think that the fueling time - not necessarily the fuel burn - is the issue. Just like with the Legends cars, I can change things like how long the fuel and tires take based on some data from real life race footage if you guys would like me too. For example: Faster fuel fill (closer to time to change tires) would make it so people didn't have to sit in the pit so much, but you could still do either a 2-stop or fuel conserve for a 1-stop strategy depending on the road course. Things like that. I can have this ready by Tuesday to test throughout the week if the organizers are interested in it.
  7. Just a heads up - that's more than a season of Pro Racing in the US would cost from a Rental team if you wanted to do something like Pirelli World Challenge or NASCAR trucks . . . . . Yikes.
  8. These cars wicked fast and don't have a wide grip window. The pace spread is going to be large and the races difficult based on tonight's practice. I'm guessing 1:04-1:05's frontal race pace and 1:06-1:08 for mid pack. Laguna Seca is really short and condensed and super narrow so everybody should just aim to keep it on the black top the whole time; slower and clean is faster than going off.
  9. I've been using external hubs for literally years with no issues until the two ports on one of mine failed just now. Works great, honestly. Edit: make sure you get hubs that are comparable with the USB types you use most commonly, though. USB 3.0 for most modern controllers and peripherals etc. You can plug 2.0 or lower into 3.0 ports but not the other way around, IIRC.
  10. Not enough to leave both the flight sim and racing sim controls hooked up at all times, which is what I normally like to do so I don't have to fuss switching between the two. But I'm only a single port short so it's not that bad.
  11. Coincidentally I just found out today the issue I had with my TrackIR not functioning during the September 8th Evening practice flyout was because two of the Powered-USB 3.0 ports on my Hub for the flight/racing sim have stopped working. One of which had my Button box for car controls and the other which had my TrackIR plugged in previously. That's seriously weird.
  12. I really wish the major races on SRS weren't all at the same time as the practices. @SnaggleWhat would you think about maybe asking Enrique about getting a JG1 or JG1 V. Ted Hough broadcast series so we could collaborate and work around the normal JG-1 practice times at some point?
  13. That's probably for the best considering how basic my flying skills are!
  14. Great! Thanks guys! I'm going to get it downloaded and installed today so hopefully I can fly it out on Thursday. Sorry about my recent inactivity - have been getting swamped in the re-set time between student Cohorts at work with video production tasks etc. I will be on tonight, though, for certain!
  15. Affirm. I'll get the free version for tonight's practice and in the meantime pinch some pennies for the full version. Will be we switching to practicing on ROF due to running events in it, or will Tuesday's still be in Flying Circuits or Great Battles?
  16. Would I be effective to the squadron with the Free/Trial version that only has those two aircraft? Or do we have particular ones you'd recommend I obtain so that I can be both cost-effective and combat-effective?
  17. IS RoF still available to run on Windows 10 PC's w/ Track IR? I have never used the simulator myself before as I only began flying in the Great Battles series.
  18. This is a tale as old as time and always goes like so . . . 1: Loud center for industry get built in the 1940's-1960's (Airfield, Race Track, Railway Yard, Port) 2: Center for industry creates economic boom in local area - businesses move within a 5-20 mile radius of Loud place 3: Industry creates need for housing. Housing starts on city limits built around supporting business 4: By the 80's/90's/, housing firms out of space to put stuff. 5: Real estate agents start lying to home buyers through omission by not mentioning loud industrial center 2-5 miles away from their home. 6: Home owners start complaining until "Loud place bad" gets shut down 7: Real estate cashes in on the boom and ups everybody's property values and cash in a huge profit 8: Home owners now can't afford their living place without the industry to supply jobs. People stop moving in causing a bust. 9: Rinse and repeat until somebody learns better.
  19. That's awesome, haha! I love holding onto the cage in my cars when I'm sitting on the grid. Makes me feel so safe compared to when they're moving.
  20. It's a 1993 Escort GT w/ the 1.8 that has mechanical injection. It's back from when Ford still majority owned Mazda and they kept swapping the 1.8 between each other. I'm not ***100%*** sure it's identical to a BP but it might be close enough. People love to tune these things over here. Improved Touring-A is the regional (local area) only class I'm running it in - which means the car is extremely limited on performance adding mods. I'm not as good at building them as I am at driving them so I'm one of the few people I know who doesn't cheat - BUT - the rulebook doesn't outlaw performance chips or port and polishing heads, intakes, rod bearings etc etc. So I might look into trying to squeeze a little more out of the car with some attention and love if I can still keep the cost down doing so without sacrificing reliability!
  21. All I'm saying is I wish Light single and double engines/LSA's etc had roll cages the way race cars do sometimes! Hehehe
  22. Both with the flight simulator and the racing simulator (JG1RT) - the main advantage is that hundreds of hours of rebuild work never result in a car packing up mid-event or an Aircraft losing power or having a major systems failure mid-flight. I think I'll stick to the squadron flyouts going forward since the real machines are rejecting my guiding touch so firmly! 😁😅 Edit: Also the water temp gauge only starts at 140F - 60C. So I can't call 4-0 Charlie when warming up the race car - it disappoints me greatly.
