add relative time for person behind

Postby SKERICK » Fri Dec 22, 2017 10:01 am

I think this is an obvious thing that suprisingl'y hasn't been coded in over the years. The amount of times i come off track or crashed and end up facing across the track, then rejoin the track and take out the rider a position behind me because i have no idea where they are on track relative to me. If i know that im 20+ sec's in front before the accident i know i can rejoin safely without clenching my teeth and preying.

I know JLV has said this could be a custom pitboard option when scripting is implemented. Also since you have to pass timing gates in order for the time to update, you will still be like 8s off the real time from a falloff.

I would like to see this as well. There are times where I see someone coming (while I'm cornering) and I can't tell if they are a lapper, I'm being lapped (Sometimes those blue flags don't come up until late), or that's the position behind me and I need to push it or attempt to block a pass.

There should be a way to have both the man ahead of you and how's behind.

Something worth mentioning for track reentry, I try and look at the mini track and see if there's a dot coming towards me before I enter. It's hard in the heat of the moment but it's something that I'm trying to learn.
I'm slow so I find myself often checking it to try and move for the fast guys!
