More lap time info in Time Trial mode

Postby Whiplash » Tue Apr 05, 2016 7:14 pm

It's really needed to add few more lap info on the screen. Currently it doesn't make clear enough if you improved your last lap or not (and by how much), or if you got the record or not. That's why these info are needed:
- Record lap time staying on the screen whole the time together with player name that holds it;
- Last lap gap time compared to the fastest lap time (if it's faster, write it by green numbers like -00.03.21 - and if it's slower, write it with red ones like +00.03.21
- And, once again, add the f*** thousands. :twisted:

+1 for the last 2 remarks, absolutely (we already asked for the thousands in another thread with vast support to the idea if memory serves).

Not sure of the best way to implement the first one, if others like the idea at all (I kinda like it too, yeah).

That will make sense only once multiplayer gets there.

Besides, I don't know if one would actually care of that.
Unless some kind of RC2-like Total Racing gets implemented, and you want to catch the "best lap" bonus.

You mean compared to your own fastest lap time, or compared to the global fastest lap time ?

That will have sense also if you're playing against some of your friends on the same PC. So, local player names is as useful as global ones. But, yes, that can also be presented only on after race stats.

Compared to your own current fastest lap.

Blah, you shouldn't take it that literally. I didn't mean to be rude.

I know mate, I was just kidding with you.

Added that into the HUD anyway, because I'm such a magnificent fellow. ;-)
