    As I mentioned I've been working on Brands Hatch GP on Assetto Corsa Competizione lately, racing in VR with my new rig setup.

    This is a video I recorded 4-5 days ago of my best lap.

    Pay no attention to the shitty FOV - I do the actual driving in VR, so I haven't touched flatscreen FOV, but recording replays in VR is a bit silly since it doesn't record the head movement, so I may as well record on the flatscreen.

    https://streamable.com/e30sj

    The key takeaways I had from this video were;
    • Sometimes I'm getting on the power too soon, and having to back off to avoid going wide, then getting back on. Better to get on the power slightly later and not have to get off it
    • I needed to focus on not overdriving the car through the corners - pick a line, set the steering angle, and avoid having to go back and forth on steering to hit the apex and track out

    You can see it particularly through the first half of the lap, a lot of overdriving going on.

    Well, five days later, I'm pretty happy with this effort, and I've cut over a second from the laptime.

    This is my shocked face.

    Actually, it is a bit. For a street race, I'm amazed it wasn't outright cancelled like Monaco.

    Ah yes, 'postponed'.

    To be fair, it's the furthest into the season that they've cancelled yet. Somewhat understandable that it has taken a while. When the lockdowns started happening I remained hopeful that we would have returned to almost normal by June but as uncertainty creeps up, 'almost normal' seems further and further away.

    Curious as to what will happen with 'postponed' races now though. There won't be enough time to slot all of them in, so they're going to have to pick which races to do (if any). Would they go for the classic races, or opt for the big money payout races?

    What car are you using?

    I've found myself rather taken with the Porsches, which is odd since I normally hate driving them in every other game.

    My position remains that I will be genuinely, but pleasantly, surprised if the cars turn a wheel in anger at all this year.

    Considering the length of time a vaccine is expected to take, I'm hoping they just cancel the season. I know they don't want to, that's a ton of money lost, but thousands of people packing into the stands is a great way to restart a pandemic that's burning out.

    F1 is so international. Like, national sports are bad enough, like NHL, NBA, etc, but F1? Those crowds are from all over the world.

    The one thing I kind of miss from iRacing with ACC are the lap analyzers. iSpeed in particular (and now the whole VRS Telemetry) would give you a ton of information if where you were weak and you could push yourself in that regard. Applying the whole one second at a time philosophy was how I polished my laps in there, and I'm kinda missing that for ACC.

    You probably end up shorter by a couple centimeters after every race, but it'll be worth it.

    If you mean by sim, Automobilista does include them.

    I’ve shaved over a second by drastically increasing downforce. Going to try to gradually get more straight line top speed. But am unsure I’ll close the over three second gap to my rivals. At least you two know you aren’t the slowest out there!

    Edit: no idea what’s happening with the cropping on my image from my phone. Whatever.

    Second edit: I’ve adjusted my steering sensitivity a bit. Found a half second.

    The V8 Vantage. I've always loved Astons, and the sound of the V8 is unreal.

    No objection to that, but any particular reason?

  • oldmankenoldmanken Registered User regular
    Actually, minor correction... The 2004 Ferrari :)

    First winner at the circuit.

    I have a G29. Not having ABS or TCS is really throwing me through a loop, I'm so used to driving sims with heavier cars that you can throw into and power out of corners, but trying that in an F1 car just gives you the opportunity to look at where you just came from.

    edit:
    MkVN5TV.jpg

    Those last few corners are really slowing me down.

    One thing that helped me a lot was changing the wheel rotation to 360 rather than the default 900 (in the g29 software). That and upping the saturation to 15 in the game, and dialing back the force feedback.

    I'm terrified of posting a hot lap time because a) Steam controller user, and b) I've had the game for about 5 days and only driven on 3 tracks, with c) every default assist on.

    I think my baseline hot lap time is DNF......

    I think I am done, and I don't think I'll end up cracking into the 1:24s. Did figure out one of my problems though... I forgot about DRS! So managed to gain a good .300 just from that, and honestly that lap could have gone better on the final sector.

    I did take the 2004 Ferrari out for a test swing... That thing is really good fun.

    I beg to differ, it is currently Formula David. I have the some of the highest times recorded and therefore am winning.
