    Default Historics Fall Season Race 2 - Hockenheim Kleiner Kurs

    Join us on Sunday October 8th for the second event in the Historics 2017 Fall Season - Hockenheim Kleiner Kurs.

    Croft was a real barnburner, and I expect no less of this layout!



    This event will be standing start. AC now allows gear selection before the green, but be aware that it also allows (and penalizes) false starts! So don't go before the green!

    We will run 1x fuel, with a mandatory pit stop. The pit window is open for the entire race. You must take at least 1 liter of fuel during your stop, but tire changes are optional.

    The server is set for 2 minutes between the Qualifying session expiring and the start of the race. Be sure to check the remaining time when the session advances so as not to get caught out.



    The Orange Zone for this event will be through the exit to turn 2 as shown here on the (clockwise) track map.

    Race Schedule
    Practice: 8-8:45 p.m. Central Time (US) - 45 min
    Qualify: 8:45-9:00 p.m. Central Time (US) 15 min
    Warmup: 9:00-9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 5 min
    Race: 9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 60 min

    Note that AC (finally) supports timed races, so the lap count will not be pre-determined.

    Download the skin pack here.

    I did some laps with the Croft setup, and it works really well here too.

    For those who may have missed it...

    I have to constantly remind myself that drifting is not the fastest way around...

    I posted this in the master thread, not sure if that was the best place for it.

    Just wondering if there's any interest in having the same car skin assigned to the regular drivers? That way we'll get to know who's who on track by the paint, rather than it changing race to race.

    We'd have to use Steam GUID/Skin assignment in the setup files for the faithful and then add the rest without a driver/skin assigned.

    I'd be all for that if we can figure it out. I think it used to be that you had to switch to "booking" mode to assign cars, can we get it done a better way now?

    I'm pretty sure you don't have to go with booking mode to assign slots and skins to a driver.

    If i remember coorectly, youjust need to assign the driver to a slot using their Steam guid and pick the skin.

    The remaining slots are assigned the usual way, without specifying a guid.

    I'll check it out with the app and let you know.

    Do you use the app to setup the servers now?

    So here's how I think you assign drivers and open slots. The first image is from the acServerManager.exe in the server folder.

    The second is the entrylist.ini that's created from it.

    If you want to experiment with me for the fun race, set me up. My guid is 76561198029771550. I can try it tomorrow night.

    Hey, it seems to work Ken! I assigned you a black Lotus, assuming that's what you see we can start signups right away!

    The pre-booking worked like a charm! Once I got the track downloaded.

    I got the same error Mihaly got trying to download from here, so I went to RD, there must be something different between the two.
    Once I pressed ignore on the warning and installed the track it was good to go.

    Thanks Michael for taking the time to test this out. I think it'll add a lot to the series!
