Automatic Restart on Main Racing Servers

Postby Sweendoggy » Sat Jan 21, 2017 7:38 pm

Is there a good reason why we don't force a race restart some amount of time after a race finishes? I just got done playing on 00, and it was crazy... typically the races are less length than the amount of time people freeride in between. While I'm an admin still and can force a restart, it's got to be maddening for most people! Also, lots of times I try to not do any commands to give my admin status away, because then people just constantly ask me to change to a specific task, or restart a race mid race, etc and then I get bitched at when I don't.

Anyway, suggestion is to automatically restart races, on the main racing servers, after 2-5 minutes or something even.

Originally the server didn't actually know the race was over. It could do it with a script now though.

I'm notoriously the one telling everyone to "RESTARTTTTTTT" after a race finishes.

A timer should be applied to all servers. I think 2-5 minutes is actually too much time. 1-2 minutes MAX.
