So although it's 100% damage(unless you lose a wheel, I think, not sure if this mod forgives this), you can still safe your bacon if you get to the pits to repair it.

At least it seemed like that in testing, might need to try it again...[/quote]

Yes and no...
As you know, we have two shades of blue in the damage indication: the darkest indicates the most serious and some of them, even going to the pits, are not repairable. It happened to me sometimes in other races.

This time, I was almost 2m in the pits and when I left I still had 'blue marked problems'. I don't know if making another stop would solve them, by a kind of accumulating stops to repair.

But (for me) the main problem in the 100% damage is that in this mod and with these cars sometimes you just have a bit track exit or a little climb up a corrector to get a damaged suspension right away.

Yes like Paulo says, my issue with damage in this mod is mostly about sensitivity. Meaning the slightest touch against an immovable object can produce disproportionate damage. Happens sometimes in mods, was the case with the rF1 original version of this one :smil20:

@Paulo: That's not how I remember it.

Light or dark blue is not an indification about being able to be repaired or not. Light blue is usually cosmetical and dark blue is mechanical. Usually there's nothing to repair if just light blue and won't get picked up as a repair option in the game.

Not sure about you, but Greg with his lost FW and possible suspension damage should've lost a lot of speed if that was the case.

The option for 100% damage is always a problem, since any touch causes damage that is sometimes irreparable.

Yes it seems the mod has the same damage values as the original rF1 version, i.e. maybe a bit excessive. We might lower that for next races, we'll let you know Wink.

I think in Greg's case, it didn't happen. He lost his front wing(and maybe more) and had to pit right behind me.

He came out some 45s behind me after the repair...

...he still caught me although the Wolf was a rather unreliable car in real life and drove away from me with ease as I couldn't hold on anywhere with my tyres, so I think I remember right that when pitting it fully repairs the car, even the aero/drag damage.

.

David , What you said about my case is totaly wrong .
After my pit , my car was slowest on the straight , i used 1/1 wings
for to be not to slow in the fast part .
what i don’t undertand , was when after an Williams hit me around
middle race , I have not damage on my dashboard but my steering wheel had 20 degres angle on the left and was more slow and too hard to kept on track . :hum:

@David:

In my case I can guarantee: I crashed hard, the car was almost impossible to drive in a straight line, but I managed to reach the pits, where I received assistance for 104s....

When I left it was a little better ... but I still had huge problems to control the car, with the steering wheel very uncertain to drive and also keeping up some light blues (of damage)... (and that's why I gave up)

And I also already experienced in other races that in straight line even with some damage and problems on the steering wheel (if you can control/hang it) you can reach some interesting speed...but when you have a turn in front it's a mess (at least with me). :urgence:

Not to want to sound like a dick, but: Wow, Greg catches me with that wreck of a car on 1/1 wings?!? I used 3/2 as I saw no further advantage going lower.


Well, I guess I was wrong about damage then. But that just shows how hopeless I was in my car, getting beaten by damaged cars Rolling Eyes

I stay with the light blue/dark blue damage: Light blue is cosmetical which doesn't show up under the pit menu(Damage: N/A).

Only dark blue is damage that should show up as being "repairable".

Then again, driving in the VEC with the Endurance content, even that was apparently not always the case...

lol! I see you can read between the lines of your competitors’ posts.

Please let me make you feel slower: I was catching you at about 9 seconds per lap with a car that was half dark blue. It was beat to Hell by someone landing on me. It did take 3 laps to figure out how to drive it and tires were gone after 18 laps so I lost time in the pits but my God it was blisteringly fast on soft tires.
