well I can confirm the track and lighting looks stunning  drool tt1

First laps at Spa using ACC, glad to see they finally got Malmedy right in a racing sim!  I tried the RSR and the McLaren, both in the 2:23's so far with 40L fuel, but only done a handful of familiarity laps.

Oops that could have stayed at 10pm, sorry Pete typo. I guess by the time practise and qually are finished it will be fully dark for the race anyway. Its better seeing it get darker as the sessions proceed.  Smiley
 
Do really like the dynamic lighting, its been a long time coming in sim racing. Anyone who's been to or watched a longer race event like Spa or Le Mans will appreciate it more.

The server was originally 10pm for P and Q and 2AM (!) for the race. I wasn't sure when it would be dark so wanted to be sure Wink

I can change it to 22:00 if you'd rather. I've made all the sessions the same as otherwise practice and race conditions could be quite different light wise etc.

just tried it for an hour,  low 2.19s here with 60L fuel.  No idea if thats good as I barely played the game and have no benchmark...   I suspect its merely average at best Tongue

yeh thats weird though, I just completed the last 45 minutes of practice and it was slowly fading light,  but then you jump to qually and it gets lighter again

I would say practice 2100, qually 2200, and race idk, 2200 if you want to start half light and finish (nearly?) dark, or later if you want full dark

Not so keen on Spa pitlane though, if you start in the new(top) half the corner at the first turn is tricky and so very easy to clobber one of the big blocks damaging the car before you even start a lap,  and then driving all the way down the hill through the old pits on the pit limiter  blink

Yeah that's because they use both the old and new pits for Blancpain as there are so many team entries. I did try sneaking between that inviting gap between the bollards but it gave me front end damage  Grin so you have to trundle endlessly through the pits.

knocked 2 secs off my time so in the 21's now and it was full dark, easy to overshoot a braking point  Tongue

Is it possible to increase the wait time once the session timer went to 0?
Right now it's set at 2 minutes but with laptimes over 2 minutes at Spa it could be possible that you cross the s/f line with 10 seconds left, which should allow you to finish your lap, but due to the 2 minutes time limit you'll be teleported to the pits amid your lap.

On another note: the formation lap is still just one corner and not a full lap like Post 1 indicates

Fair point, it's now 2:30

I still haven't seen how you set this. The server settings documentation is clearly wrong and the bug I reported has not been fixed. First off it's meant to generate empty files if you have none, it does not. It's then meant to add settings missing if you reduce the version number field, it does but adds ones not in the documentation. It doesn't add a setting to change the formation lap format nor does he documentation mention such a feature. And no one else has been forthcoming with a suggested answer the times this has come up before. The results files are still woefully short of data that AC provided and again contains values that are undocumented as impossible to guess.

While doing my regular flight sim stuff last night I noticed ACC updated via Steam and the server executable had a new date/time stamp so I've updated the server this morning. I got excited as the manual was now v2 but it doesn't answer any of the above.
