Title: X30 Hotlap Event!
Post by: dibu on April 14, 2013, 06:06:24 pm
The event will run Essay for one week. Next Sunday the track will change.
You can find the results here in the KRP section: http://hotlap.no-ip.info/

Everything is still work in progress but we thought it's good enough for a first test.

Goddamn it.....
the x30 is radically different from the other karts.
It's ass is all over the place, just can't get a decent setup.....
How can you guys do a 46????
I can do 46 spins, that's what I can do...

Hey dibu, can you tell me about how the hotlap point system works?
1st round is over and I see for example Cory Hayes with 48 points total, beiing that 15 best laps, 25 best runs and 8 theoretical bests.
How can 15 best laps be performed in a single event?
What am I missing?

Thanks ;)

I hoped that it's more or less self explaining when you look at the results site: http://hotlap.no-ip.info/HotLapEvent/index.php?dbName=X30&sectors=3

Points for place 1 to 10 of 'Best lap' (fastest laptime) are:  25 - 18 - 15 - 12 - 10 - 8 - 6 - 4 - 2 - 1
Points for place 1 to 10 of 'Best run' (best 5-lap run) are:  25 - 18 - 15 - 12 - 10 - 8 - 6 - 4 - 2 - 1
Points for place 1 to 10 of 'Theoretical best' (addition of best splits) are:  12 - 10 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1
Points for place 1 to 3 of 'Highest speed' (measured at speed trap) are:  5 - 3 - 1
Points for the one who drove 'Most laps' are:  5


Your example Cory Hayes: (download the 'X30-Hotlap-Essay-Round1.pdf' from the results thread for details)

Best lap           -  3rd place  -  15 points
Best run           -  1st place  -  25 points
Theoretical best   -  3rd place  -   8 points
Highest speed      - 13th place  -   0 points
Most laps          -  2nd place  -   0 points
                                  ---------------------
Total points                        48 points

nice :)
thanks for explaining ;)
yet 10th place is not easy to reach. We have very good drivers and they can build nice setups too.
It would be nicer if you put more places with points...
One other thing... Is it suposed to be single events or some kind of championship?

Here is the setup (CRG) which I use atm, not the fastest but maybe it helps: http://www.mediafire.com/?lupnd206xt2rbyw

I'm sure we will revise the point system after this first test.

As already said in the first post this is a test for Random's hotlap system. http://forums.piboso.com/showthread.php?tid=532
To be honest, we didn't really think very much about the future of this event. Probably we'll run the seven official tracks of the sim and add the points of each round. The driver with most points will be the champion at the end.

For us it's interesting:
- Is our system stable (looks good atm)
- Are drivers interested in such a system (continue to develop?)
- Offer a platform for new karts which aren't listed in the official stats

yeah, I thought it would be awesome to unofficial karts too :) but even for official it's very nice.
I'm excited about hotlap events, and I think it's a nice addon specially for ocasional drivers who cannot participate in any kind of championship events due to their lack of time.
Keep on the good work ;)

It's cool to see so many people using my creation. :D If anyone has any feedback for the X30, feel free to post it here: http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=2731.0

By the looks of it, it's probably a little too fast since I raised the RPM limiter.
