Changing the option to choose drive type in /race
« on: 20 11, 2021, 12:39:35 am »
Right now you can choose what drive type you want for /race in /settings, except you really cant cause AWD is the fastest in every situation and your putting yourself at a massive disadvantage by using anything other than AWD. Its just less fun when every car is AWD imo
And when the race creators made the tracks we have right now im pretty sure they intended for them to be raced on using stock cars.

SO I'm suggesting to remove the option in /settings and instead give the race creators the option to choose what drivetrain they want for their tracks. Stock, RWD, AWD, or FWD. This should instead give them more creative freedom to make more fun and challenging races.

  I think players will should play as fairly in the race (in my opinion), but I don't know Community Members will support this or not, i'll give my final vote later but now Neutral.

that's the first time I'm hearing of this and it's just funny  :'(

It's true, most if not all the recent races were tested in RWD before they were published and some of them feel odd as fuck.
Here is an example: https://cit.gg/index.php?topic=380211.0 That map is a complete waste of effort with how things are right now. Number is 100% correct, it should be up to the mappers to decide.

Players should be able to decide what drive type they want to use for races because I know some people prefer using RWD (rear wheel drive) to all wheel drive because some cars are easier to drive like that and vice versa. AWD is faster in most cases, but for some cars it's not always the case. What's less fun is that all cars are the same, so when you're all together on a straight there's no change of position .. but that's another topic.

I agree, although some drive types are annoying. I don't think anyone uses front wheel drive for eg, everyone changes it to RWD or AWD. I don't have a problem with using set drive types, before drive types even existed I used the Bullet which was RWD, and raced against Turismo which felt like AWD ... and yeah it was a challenge, I agree. But then players got the freedom to change their cars and I like that aspect, but like I said, it used to be stock for everyone, so I'm indiferent to both cases.

That's true, although it's not really a race, more like an exhibition. The intent is for cars to go sideways and AWD doesn't allow that really.

Neutral.

Hear me out

I am racing since 2017, never seen such shit created before. What will be next, being able to tune cars in /race to your own preferences? Don't make me laugh. If you can't handle a veh with RWD and you spin out, don't drive the damn car or just go and practice instead of "picking AWD".

Positive.

If you never raced don't even think of sharing your opinion, also let actual racers decide about racing community here, not some random people who are only farming forum posts. Cheers.

My race is the perfect illustration of this suggestion; I created a little track with a lot of effort that was meant solely for drifting, not to find someone drifting while another isn't. Although the /settings option isn't a bad idea, it fails to account for races like mine. We can make it optional for the mapper to pick whether the racers can choose their own driving type via /settings or if he forces them to drive by a predefined kind. Voting positive.

- Race map makers can now specify a drive type that all race vehicles will use. (Arran + Number69)
