Hi all,

Since playing this brilliant game I decided i needed to keep track of everything lap times, setup changes and all the rest of it, so I created this....

It's not finished by a long stretch but doing it slowly. I have saved so much time too, since I don't repeat setup changes, I know what I started with and what works and what doesn't. Feel free to take a look, I have also included the dropbox link so you can save your own copy too, although you will need Open Office (it's FREE to download).

So how do you guys/girls keep track of your pCARS experience?

I have nothing for setups, but at least for an overview of my TT records I have made a little tool here (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?34023-DOWNLOAD-Time-Trial-Leaderboards-Tracking-Tool). It notifies me when someone beat my WR so I can get right back to that bastard!* :D

*in theory. in practice most times I think "shit, too hard to beat" and move on to a new combination..

This is really good. It's a shame console users can't use it. I'm just using a Google doc to chart track times and set-ups. It's not that bad going the DIY route. It kind of reminds me of what I used to do with stuff like Microprose GP.

I am a console user, I have this spreadsheet open on my laptop, I also have evernote open (the "notes" hyperlinks go to that particular car/track combo's setup note). I just enter times/notes as I go the download link includes my data (for example purposes) so you will see my setup changes and notes.

The only problem with google is that it hates to formulas for lap times thats why I use open office

Good stuff!

Kind of a shame, though, that the game itself doesnt have anything that comes close to this.

I did mention a while back about making notes in game and the ability to view all your fastest laps in each class/car/combo but got no real answer so I started work on the above, as I mentioned if not even close to finished missing cars and tracks but the strategy calculator is quite handy until it rains and messes everything up. I also need to add space for night and wet lap times

Sort of announcement...

As I have a MacBook and the app creating software I'm going to make an attempt to turn the spreadsheet and strategy calculator into an app on OSX. It may take me a while and a lot of YouTube tutorials but I'll give it a go.

If anyone has any advice that would be handy
