Endurance Race – Le Mans Bugatti

This race is a another chance to experiment with Lee’s refuel patch.
You will need to download the patch from SRMZ - http://srmz.net/index.php?showtopic=10007&hl=%2Brefuel+%2Bpatch – save to your computer as instructed & activate with the tick box in Gem. Pretty easy. The accompanying text file explains how to go about a refuelling stop.

Race rules as follows. Free choice of chassis for everyone BUT drivers must all make a minimum of one refuel stop. You can take more if you wish.
The race will be run on Intermediate Damage model. Unlimited Shift R is permitted, followed by a compulsory stop & go in the pit lane.

With the potential for different refuel strategies & the closely competitive F2 car set there should be lots of racing. Please take care when exiting the pits & be courteous when overtaking.

This is an endurance race of approximately 80 minutes – qualifying has been reduced to 15 minutes.

Feedback would be welcome.

Race List = iGOR
Server = UKGPL_8

Pitstop Patch 77C  v1.00
Lee Bowden
22 May 2014

Here is a patch for GPL that simulates refueling during pitstops.  It may be used both on and offline and works with all mods and tracks.  Refueling is historically accurate for only the '67 Sports Car mod, but other mods may use it as an additional fun factor.

Installation Instructions:

Copy the 77C Pitstop v1.00 .xml file to your GPL installation's "Mods/GEM+/mod name/options" directory.  If you don't already have an "options" directory, you should create one first.

Start GEM+ and check the 77C Pitstop v1.00 checkbox.  Start the mod.exe using GEM+'s green button and once on track, enter the pits and begin refueling.




To disable the patch, simply deselect the patch's GEM+ checkbox and restart GPL.

If you have installed multiple mods, you will need to copy the patch to each mod's "options" directory.

What Does The Patch Do?

1.  On reaching the pit stall, the pitboard will go away.  If you want to refuel, raise the driver's arm which is normally activated by the space bar.  After a short delay, the pitboard will begin to flash on and off indicating that refueling is in progress.  Once refueling is complete, the pitboard goes away entirely.

2.  The car is refueled to the setup menu fuel load.  Players can adjust their fuel load to trade off quicker lap times versus the time it takes to enter the pits and refuel.  So for races, players may use different fuel strategies.

3.  The refueling rate is approximately 1.5 gallons/5.7 liters per second; however, there is a small random factor applied so that each refueling will be slightly different.  The difference between the setup menu fuel load and the amount of fuel onboard determines how much fuel is loaded.  In addition, 5 seconds is the minimum pit stop time regardless of fuel onload.  This gives the mechanics time to clean the windshield and empty the ashtray while the driver waves at the girls on the pit wall.

4.  While refueling, the player's throttle is disabled which prevents him from prematurely leaving the pit stall.

5.  Refueling works in all modes;  Online, Championship, Race, and Training.

6.  No repairs are made during the pitstop.

7.  The Pitstop patch is compatible with the Weather patch.

Enjoy the patch.
Lee

I think that the event would be much better served by employing the patch v0.22 with its much slower rate of flow.  Not many F2's out there with dry-break fuel fillers.

Here's another mirror. I think I got this file in the RSC days, it has AI minmax.lp and track.ini updates, and includes the update by Klas from GPL Today in seperate folders included in the download.

http://www.gpldownloads.net/tracks/bugatti_with_addons.zip

Here's the original webpage Smiley :

Don't feel that you are being picked on....I got disco'd just a few laps later...also in 3rd place  Roll Eyes

This track used to have a history of freezes and discos,  but I thought that it had been "fixed".....................maybe not?
