Mixed 7 full circuit forward:



Tonight online, I got push wide this checkpoint in the first turn and triggered the red circle! :(

Seem to me this checkpoint way to close to the track. Be a lot better if checkpoint was out wider. Player not cheating the turn if they get force wide.

Mixed 7 full circuit forward:



I also took a look at the other checkpoints and and this checkpoint could stand go out a little wider.


Mixed 7 full circuit reverse:



Looking at this checkpoint on Mixed 7 full circuit reverse. Another checkpoint easy to get push wide of. Is there really a need to have this checkpoint? The checkpoint further down the track at the turn, be all you need.

Also why some many checkpoints on Tarmac 3 ( Espedalen )?






Some the checkpoints are pit checkpoints for when cars go to pit row. But sure look to me there a lot of extra checkpoints that are not needed to stop players from cheating the track. And the extra checkpoints raise the chance of player missing a checkpoint if racing get rough.


I only use enough checkpoints so a player can not cheat my custom tracks, like cheating a turn to much.
