    Feature request: Race Director mode

    Apologies if this has been covered before but I couldn't find a thread matching this thought.

    I'd like to see a Race Director mode for online events, typically leagues or arranged events etc. This would give a player greater control over arranging online sessions. Of course, they would not actually drive in the race, but they could have a Charlie Whiting seat from which to wield their godlike powers. They would have numerous cameras available to them to do with as they choose, would have veto over handing out penalties, muting players, kicking troublemakers and so on. The Race Director would have the ability to speak to all or specific players and could not be muted.

    I see this being useful for organised events, i.e. private sessions, as there is potential for abuse in public lobbies. You could even give players the ability to vote out an abusive Race Director in a similar manner to kicking bad players at the moment.

    Any thoughts?

    Safety car control would be cool too. The leagues I used to play in on Forza would do that - have one guy be the safety car and run the pace laps and come out after any major incident, and it was actually pretty fun.

    Wouldn't really need any programming on SMS' part, just a car with an official looking livery and the ability to disclude it from timing and scoring.

    Our league use to run a Safety car, Just a Gumpret done up with a SC skin.

    Then on bad incidents he would go out and draw the field in as he would be spectating. On GT3 events he would do the formation lap, on the 4th last turn given the circuit he would speed away then peel in to pits and spectate the race. He also acted as the Race Director.
    Now as he was a number of laps down he was always classed as DNF or last, we always just omitted him from the results.

    Not quite what your after but it was the best we could do. Seemed to go well and he enjoyed it.

    I may not be the Best but its a passion that i have for Livery design and My current work shows my passion. Feel free to look at my liveries at Photobucket
