Title: Starting every race in 1st pol
Post by: Merhunes Dagon on February 04, 2018, 11:14:52 AM
Hello BugBear,
I don't know if it's a bug but everytime I start a race in custom event with a different car, i'm everytime first and I would like to start randomly or to choose our grid before the race.  :P

I also would like the option for a random start with AI in custom event race. Who want start up front with the AI?  Where the fun in that? :P

Currently the grid position is determined by inverted grid order based on performance points, i.e. the faster the car is the more back it starts.

So it's impossible to start last for me because I never upgrade my cars against the AI ? And it happend with every car, except yesterday where I started with other car (sunrise and american1) 1 time, so I began another one and I started 1st again :s

A random grid would be sweet! selectable if possible.

So, any further input on this one? Selectable grid position is not possible, so it's either the current, random, first or last.

Can it has options? One for fastest in front, one for fastest in back, random rtf?

Nope.

Then I'd say random is better. You lose some, you win some.

If custom isn't possible, then maybe you could allow random generator button in start race menu, so you could randomize until happy? Probably bit lame workaround if possible...

That's a pretty unique solution, like lottery :)

If only can pick one, random my choice.  If you don't like your car position, restart the race.

Janne, would I get a random start if I do a restart or would I have quit race and start race again from the menu to get a random car start?

That's a good question and I'm not 100% but my gut-feeling is that you need to go back to the menu, otherwise the start position remains the same.

With a random position, you can't control your start position. It's fairer now, I think. If you want to start last, upgrade your car. If you want to start first, downgrade your car. Easy and fair solution. If it's possible, an info about what start position you will have before loading the track would be nice.

Definetly random in my opinion.

Janne, would I get a random start if I do a restart or would I have quit race and start race again from the menu to get a random car start?

Well if u look at the other random options for example random weather u dont get random weather every time u justpress restart, so i think its the same with grid right now (same was in fo2)

Oh... too late sorry I didnt noticed the second page in forum  :-X

To add something - would like to see custom ai cars with random customizations and asembly
