Starting grid and opponents.

Postby Sigrid » Thu Dec 03, 2015 8:45 am

Hey guys!

I think everyone will agree about this: the starting grid should be a bit more large, so we don't get stuck in the back of the others at the beginning of each race. I bet their acceleration problem at the beginning of the race has something to do with the friction problem which is already known by the Devs, so they'll probably run ahead of us in a near future, but even if they start quickly i feel there should be a little more space between the cars before the race starts.

And second point: 10 opponents is already great, but could there possibly more? Races with 20 cars on the track would be awesome (though with everyone using power ups it could become a warzone), which sends us back to an already existing topic about characters in the vehicles.

That. Bro. Is one of the best ideas i saw on this forum. But i would prefer a nascar-type race with even more opponents.

Coming to think of it if characters become a thing, I think there's a limit where, if npc are too many, you care too little about their identity/backstory. From RC1 I remember Tony, Ria, Leon and Yuri because of their distinguishable cars and car specs. If GRIP has 30 of them with only car skins different, I wouldn't relate that much to the potential story GRIP has to offer...

My 2 cents :)

Actually the cars getting bunched at the start of the race has to do with avoidance code. You see, the cars don't play well together due to UE4's collision, so we have them avoid each other until it's fixed.

As for widening the race start, I was thinking about widening the gate at one point. Still could

And regarding # of vehicles, we need to implement an opponent count. I don't see why we can't put 20 player starts in the level. Don't whine when all the dust effects send your PC into the stone age, though :D

Would love 20 player races. :D Got 24 players online with Wreckfest, but can get major lag if players have high PING, low FPS and if host does not have big enough internet pipes to handle the load of 18+ players.

When it comes to online racing with GRID 1 and Wreckfest, particle effect ( dust\ smoke ) is set to low. Is the Effects Quality the particle effect setting in GRIP? Right now I can run it on Epic with my 960.
Wreckfest fan boy. :D

Yea the effects quality should be tied to the level of detail settings in the particles effects. Some effects lack those tweaks as of right now, though
