some kind of qualifying mode or some shit

Postby 808 » Tue Jan 30, 2018 6:35 pm

Make it to where you can set your server to "practice" mode or "qualifying" mode, which makes the race not a race anymore, and rather just an endless qualifying session. When you join the server, you aren't in warmup mode, you just spawn right in and could start running laps. Even if you couldn't use this for qualifying, it would be cool to not have to restart everytime somebody joins, or waiting for some dumb fuck that just won't rr for some reason. Prolly a shit idea but whatever, i'm gonna keep coming up with shit ideas until one of them sets in.

I've actually brought this up before and I think it got JLV's input. I forget what it was though. If you search hard enough, maybe you'll come across it.

Quail sessions have to finish at some point as qualify times come from the server index page off mxsimualtor.com

Although, if JLV could figure out how to make it happen, it’d be extra fire addition to the racing scene :lol:

well what if we had like 30 minutes sessions and when someone joined, they could be immediatley put in with out a restart. then after 30 min, the white flag would come out and then the "race" could restart and the times would be grabbed for qualifying?

It would be nice to know how many riders need to finish for the 'final results' to appear. After 29 mins would I be able to join the server and get a white flag after the 30 minute mark of the servers current race? Or would I have to do as many laps as whoever is in "first" at the time to be able to get white flag first?

Say 7 people start the 20 min session. 2 are left after 13 mins but both are just sitting and have been since let's say 7 mins or lap 4 and are AFK for whatever reason. I join in at 14:26, run a lap would I get the white flag? Or would I have to do the 3 laps and pass leader on lap 4 then get the white flag?

Also the issue could be entirely different and for some reason the game and/or servers dont allow us to join without being in warmup.

DP but we could test this ourselves. Excluding the joining in issue.

well i think it would be like irl qualifying, there is really no leader so once the 30 minutes is up, the white flag comes up for everyone who passes it. then once the riders in the server restart the race, then the times will be sent to EMF or whatever the race is hosted on.


p.s. EMF can we pls make AFKs go invis in servers? ppl in the middle of the track is rlly annoying.

So basically the exact same thing as it is now but slightly different for some reason? I was thinking more like the session literally never ends until the server admin pulls the checkered flag or the server shuts down, and you could just hop in the server, automatically be in race mode, run a lap and leave without the race finishing, knowing it got sent to emf.

not in 800 lol.

I was basically saying that we should just have 30 minutes sessions but you can join in and start turning laps and have them count, but as CJ said the race has to be ended and restarted for the laps to count so after 30 minutes the riders will be given the white flag, and once everyone finishes the race will restart or the players in the server can restart it.

Here's a JLV responses regarding this from back in 2012:

Could just make it use someone else's model. It would be better than a glitch anyway. It sure is simpler not to have to go back and edit in the late joiners in the demos and results though.
