Gate Picks

Postby Gideon#67 » Thu May 09, 2013 3:47 pm

Any way in a possible future update we can get something added that allows you to see what gates have been picked? I'm not sure how it's setup now as far as priority according to qualifying position but it may be useful to see what has been reserved by the guys ahead of you . Maybe something that just "warns" you
that the gate you are trying to pick is already taken, allowing you to choose a different one rather than just being assigned one. I think it would really be beneficial for organized events and such.

God this would be great.

Only issue I see is that the gates are picked based off of Qualifying times. If 40th place guy picked my gate and I qualified 10th, I would still get it anyways. He would get pushed out and it would just cause for everyone to be shuffled.

I mean, either way would still be awesome. It would still work but you would just need to know who qualified where when looking at the gates.

I was unaware of that. I always that it just went by who picked their gate first, cause I always tried to get my gate picked as soon as possible to make sure I got it. I need to start qualifying better :P

I think if this were to be implemented in big races there should be a script telling each rider, in order of qualifying, when to pick their gate. Say I qualified first, there would be a broadcast of "Byron Downen choose gate," then I'd have, say 10 seconds to pick my gate. If I don't pick by then, I will be forced to an available gate once everyone who will pick has picked. Then the unused gates will go in order of gate number for the riders in order of qualifying. So if I don't pick my gate and gate 5 is the first empty gate, I will be locked into gate 5. Then the script would repeat for every rider in the moto. I think it should be a short window of gate picks though so it doesn't hog tons of time.

also if someone ahead of you chose your gate maybe put like a warning just to you in chat telling you someone chose your gate and to pick another

Already possible via scripting from the rF site. Still what your suggesting to be done in game is over complicated. I don't have a better suggestion, but I can see what is being suggesting as wing confusing and time consuming.

You could pretty much do what has been suggested via the rF site with a graphical gate selection map and leave gate selections open until a few minutes before the race at which point those scripts could be made and uploaded. But it's also more work for the people running the races and confusing because you'd have to tab out to do it.

I like this. I think one of the MvA games did it this way with a GUI but that is too like, crazy for sim, would require alot of work (reflex maybe). Also, if it auto picked gate gates starting from gate 40 so the insides dont get filled with people not paying attention it would be more of an incentive to make sure you pick gate.

Player 1 Pick gate:
Gate 2
Player 2 Pick gate:
Gate 7
Player 3 Pick gate
Gate 2---> This gate is already taken please choose a new gate.
Player 4 Pick gate:
Gate 40
Player 5 Pick gate:
Gate 1
Player 6 Pick gate:
(doesnt choose gate)----. Assigned to gate 39
Player 7 Pick gate:
Gate 10
Player 8 Pick gate:
Doesnt pick gate ---> auto assigned to gate 38

Player 9 Pick gate

I love this idea! The only concern I have is for Supercross it would be great with 20 riders max. But nationals it would take so long to go through and have people pick their gate.

Maybe once you're past the top 20 you could have a group pick at once but still have their picks prioritized by qualifying. Say after the top 20 pick have 21-25 pick, then 26-30, then 31-40.

RF could do this, technically, already, but it wouldn't be real pretty like I think most are thinking. Basically, when you sign up, you could put in your 3 choice for gates, and hope that one is received. It could then be sorted via script generator(somehow, dont kill me Wheels lol idk how hard it would be!) and inserted into the script so that each person has "picked" their gate. Obviously, this would suck for those in the back of the pack, it by then it really doesn't matter because all the gates suck anyways.

I read part of your post then thought it was going nowhere. But like Schmidtty said, best idea here. :lol:
