    Standard weather slot duration is 60mins.
    Yes, this is true, but not comfortable. 2x = 30 Minutes???

    Correct

    I know its not comfortable but we need to find out if this is an issue that's exclusive to "sync to race", random weather or a combination of both.

    Ok, I will try it for you. But I hope you will find some time to test it also. Most players are dont spend time to report and test bugs.

    Test results:

    This time my friend hosted the server and we changed "sync to race" setting to the 10x.

    Settings:
    Training 15 minutes, 2 slots random weather 10x weather.
    Quali 15 minutes, 2 slots random, weather 10x weather.
    Race 8 rounds, 2 slots random, weather 10x weather.

    Resutls were:


    Training: Cloudy, cheerful weather, heavy fog (weather changed after every 6 minutes)
    Quali: Cloudy, cheerful weather, heavy fog (weather changed after every 6 minutes)
    Race: Cloudy, cheerful weather, heavy fog (weather changed after every 6 minutes)

    I have to say: Same problem and behaviour as well. The sessions dont calculate new random weather. The session take the weather slot results from the session before.

    I think it works exactly the same as PC1.

    The random weather is generated one time for the event, and it repeats in all sessions. So if you have Sun to Rain weather in practice, you know that this pattern will be the same in qualy & race.

    I think that the random weather must be generated for each session, because as it works now, it's not obviously random. You know before the race exactly what weather you will have, and when it will change. I don't know if there is a bug, or it was planned in this way, but I think that is something that the devs must look at.

    Good to know, but i totally agree with you. Its bullshit and really unrealistic. It needs to be changed as soon as possible.

    I have to remind you. Still no answer from DEVS!!!!

    Additional example:

    Hello Devs and so on,

    we found out a crazy behavior with the random weather when you have a raceweekend with more then one sessions. I cant believe that the current system was planed as it is now.

    Main Problem: When you have random weather slots in the race weekend sessions (training, quali, race). The results of the first session (here training) will be used also in quali and race. For example.

    Training(first session of the race weeekend): 15 Minutes, 3 Weather Slots: 1. Random, 2. Random, 3. Random(Synced to race)
    Result was: Fog, Stormy weather, clear

    Quali: 15 Minutes, 3 Weather Slots: 1. Random, 2. Random, 3. Random (Synced to race)
    Result was: Fog, Stormy weather, clear

    Race: 9 Rounds, 3 Weather Slots: 1. Random, 2. Random , 3. fix clear weather (Synced to race)
    Result was: Fog, Stormy weather, clear

    This is completly unrealistic and I cant believe that there is to much effort to change this. We need as soon as possible a change here, that every slot of the other sessions will be generated by himself and not taken over from the first session. Come on guys,currently this kills this weather system!

    I think that all of us agree in this question.

    But the Livetrack Sync issue is now the biggest problem. Even if random slots are generated correctly for each session, if all the players have different track conditions it would be very unfair. That is the reason because you can’t find lobbys with weather changes.

    I hope that the devs could fix the Livetrack Sync problem and then, this will be the next step. But fixing the random slots without fixing the Livetrack Sync, will not improve our situation.

    Crossed fingers.
