    Any idea of what data will be available to the app developer? Will it be race data (lap times, current position, fastest lap, time behind, sector times), or strictly car data (telemetry). Just curious.

    not yet, but I think both race, track and car data will be broadcasted through the network. That would be not only useful to telemetry and dash apps, but to league management too.

    You would never get such a feedback and feature updates like this from EA, Codemasters, Ubisoft, Sony, you-name-it!

    Thanks guys!
    You should let alone Sony since they allowed for this to be... >_>

    Reaper. That's pretty much why I asked. A teammate makes apps and he'd like to try one for league type data I believe

    I guess a better question would be what data is currently available on pc as that's what will likely be available to us.

    There's a thread with that information. I couldn't find it, but I'm sure it's out there.

    You can see most of that info in this thread I believe:

    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...l=1#post984616

    In the first post the 'code' window shows all of the data types that are included.

    I would imagine that the Max UDP size is likely to restrict the telemetry output long before any concerns of the platform providers becomes an issue.

    I haven't even looked at the shared memory file structure yet and therefore it's likely size, but the recommended max UDP size is just under 1500 bytes.

    You want to avoid packet fragmentation, therefore the maximum amount of data that can be sent in a packet needs to be under the typical MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit), which on most hardware these days is just under 1500 bytes.

    If the entire structure sent is under this number, great, we have a wealth of data coming our way, if it's over, well either Tim gets creative with compression techniques or compromises will have to be made, or probably both :P

    Another option would be to interleave packets, so it sends a "race state" packet first, then follows up with a "car state" packet after and then the data can be split into two packets doubling the amount of data that can be sent, however this isn't free as for each different packet type you add you will reduce the "frame rate" of the data, so to speak.

    Note to programmers, I've tried to laymans-ify the above, I know its not that simple, but serves as an illustration, if any of the above is wrong, correct me! - development is just a hobby for me, and I'm hellishly rusty, and i always welcome a chance to learn! :P

    I understand your fear! But don't worry, they will not turn it back because of my comment.

    What I'm refering to is not Sony as a whole, but in general game publishers.
    Specifically to racing games, I played GT3 to GT6 and almost every F1 game since 2010, and have never seen user requested features implemented in any of them.

    New features are usually analyzed and maybe implemented in a next version. Actually PCars2 will have many of the requested features listed in this forum.

    But this is a completely new feature that will be implemented in the current version and deserves attention! Many people come over here only to complain: "I want my money back", "this game is unplayable/unfinished", and these people fail to see that for a team sized as SMS and the budget that was made available, we have a hell of a game, constant patches and features. In short: they are listening to us, this is all I wanted to say in the first place!
