    [QRWEP] Quick Race Weekend Event Planner (V1.1)

    Since the "Sync to Race" weather feature doesn't work in connection with pre-race sessions I thought I'd build a little
    spreadsheet to plan my QRW, taking time and weather progression into account.

    It's pretty basic (just like my Excel skills ) but I thought it's good enough to share it with you.

    What does it do?

    With the QRWEP you can plan your Quick Race Weekend in advance, set up weather and time progression to your liking
    and immediately see the effect the settings have on your (pre)race sessions.


    Where can I get it?

    Download: QRW Event Planner V1.1.xlsx
    (Update Notes included in spreadsheet)


    What does it look like?

    Here's a quick preview of the QRWEP:

Size:	236.6 KB 
ID:	215772


    How do I use it?

    As you can see, the spreadsheet consists of six info sections where you can set up your event and a graph
    showing you what your QRW will look like:

    Session Duration: Here you can choose the duration of all the pre race and race sessions you want to drive.

    Weather Duration: Shows the number and length of all the weather conditions you have set up in "Weather Settings".

    Weather Settings: This is where you set up the number of weather slots and the weather progression slider.

    Time of Day Settings: Choose the event starting time and time progression slider.

    Session Starting Times: Check out the starting time of every single event session.

    Event Duration: Here you can see how much time it will take to complete your QRW (realtime) and how long the event will be ingame (taking time progression into account).

    Event Graph: This graph displays the duration of your QRW in realtime and how many (and when) weather changes will happen.


    Are there any issues/limitations?

    • When the event lasts longer than your chosen weather slots, the game will return to the first weather condition and cycle through all of them again. The event graph doesn't show this unfortunately.
    • The max race length for timed races is limited to 4:00h for now until I can solve the weather slot issue above.
    • [FIXED V1.1] The spreadsheet doesn't calculate the race session length (yet). Since timed races are not possible atm you'll have to estimate it by yourself. Maybe I'll implement a quick calculator in an update SMSoon™.


    Attention: In order to keep the time and weather cycle working correctly ingame please DO NOT RESTART ANY OF THE QRW SESSIONS! Restarting a session will completely reset the system to the starting conditions of session #1!

    That's it?

    Yup.
    Feedback, suggestions, bug reports or general questions are welcome.

    GREAT WORK.
    Its very useful!

    A sugestion: Can you make the time tabel also in 10 minutes a piece.

    I mean 1.00 - 1.10 - 1.20 etc.

    Cause i drive always 24 hrs races in time scale 20 and thats 1 hr and 12 minutes a race for the 24 hr cyclus.

    Version 1.1 released.

    - Added functionality to switch between timed and lap races (special thanks to jimmyb_84 for his awesome pit strategy guide )

    You can now switch between these two race types by simply ticking/unticking the "Timed Race" button. The spreadsheet will also warn you when you set up your race session incorrectly.


    Attention: In order to keep the time and weather cycle working correctly ingame please DO NOT RESTART ANY OF THE QRW SESSIONS! Restarting a session will completely reset the system to the starting conditions of session #1!

    Although I guess this is no longer needed now that lap race duration is implemented, I also added the missing 0:45 and 1:15 options (I hope that's close enough for you ).
