Hi all, I searched this specific forum for my question but I could not find a topic on it yet so here it goes. (PCARS2 question)

Since personal leaderboards (=seeing the times from the player with all cars per track) are not possible on consoles, would it be technically possible to have an app on a mobile device that collects the results after the race from the game (via UDP) and locally stores this data in the app? That app would then one by one (one after each race) start populating these leaderboards as the player is doing races. I would be REALLY interested for example to see what my times are with a bunch of cars on a certain track. For example I race all 4 LMP1 cars on Le Mans, I then go to the app and I can see for the Le Mans track what my time is with the AUDI E-tron, with the TS040, with the RWD and the Marek. If I race the same 4 cars on a twitchy track like Leguna Seca the results might be in a different order and the car that is strongest on Le Mans might not be the strongest on Laguna Seca.

Such info would be of great value to me as it allows me to compare all the cars with each other on all the tracks for my own racing experience. I have no real interest to compare my times with other players online. It can be valuable as well for tuning cars or would just give tremendeous replay value for singleplayer racing.

My topic has been written a bit more in-depth in the following forum thread from the PCARS2 section :

So, is this technical possible? Or does something similar already exist?

It should be possible, even with PC1 I think. I know that vrHive (and likely other similar apps) keeps track of every lap you run (as long as the app is running). So the data are there, they just need to be organized and sorted like a leaderboard.

I'm working on that for my Android app "o.O Cars". At the moment you need to start a race to see best and theoretical best for the current track-car-driver combination, but the goal is to organize the data to offer exactly what you are looking for.

Hi!
Hm, i wrote a script that saves all laps into a database, but you would need to host a dedicated server on your pc... If that would be an option send me a pm. (i cant post links yet)
