View Full Version : Online Race Complete Time Shorter ??

24-05-2015, 20:39
Can we decided how long to give people to finish a race online as the current time is way to long waiting for IDLE players. I would much prefer 30 seconds more than enough time to finish after the race

I *think* if the session originator hits "esc" after finishing the race, the extended "time to race end" counter will get cut short to ... about 30 secs AFAICR? Seemed to be the case for me at least in my first try at online sessions last night.

I'm on the PS4 so that won't work for me, I just think 130 seconds is a bit excessive to wait for the race to complete.

The time limit was increased from 30 seconds after WMD discussion, because many WMD drivers were getting frustrated that they could not at least finish the lap they were on before the countdown ended.

... And not all users are doing sprint races online, some might fancy doing 50% of real F1 Spa (22 laps) for example, where the backmarkers could easily end up falling a lap behind. They deserve to finish their current lap after racing for ~45 minutes.;)

I understand that but is there not a way we can implement in the race setup to change the race finish time ourself or can the game recognise whether its a short or long race and set a finish time that is suitable ?

An option to shorten the time is an absolute must in my opinion.

Maybe "some" are doing longer runs, but most are doing short races up to 10 laps and it is annoying to waste so much spare freetime with waiting till a new race can be started.

The wait for others to finish wouldn't be so bad if you could at least cycle through the remaining players.
