    Daytona (SDT) Day & Night

    This is our V8Thunder league track adapted for offline use, it's roughly based on the 2012 appearance of Daytona, this track features AI from JR Franklin and revised banking geometry/transitions among many other things.

    This track is amazing, is there a way to get similar AI behaviour on other tracks? For example Talladega SBP

    Try reducing their braking efficiency number, this was another thing me and JR had trouble sorting, also it depends what papy_ai you're running as to how much that happens.

    We've come to the conclusion that the AI can either be programmed to race like this, with a few flaws like speeding (that they don't always get done for), or perfect but with no "racing" character, there doesn't seem to be any happy medium in between.

    My theory is the more speed that's involved, the more flaws there are, it's probably why short tracks have the best AI overall.

    Is there nothing else we can do about it? For example new pit.lp files? Also how will lowering that parameter affect other tracks?

    We tried everything we could think of to solve that pit road speeding problem with no success. New pit lps will not make any difference. Adjusting the "ai_decel_modifier" in the track.ini of this track will have no affect on any other track but this one.

    I changed that part to high and low numbers but the AI keeps busting the pit road speed limit. Too bad because that flaw is ruining an otherwise perfect track.

    I agree with comments already made.
    racing is fun..AI is agressive...too bad the #20 car slammed me on pit road LOL
    also cars on the high side tend to scrape the wall some

    Pitspeed Fix

    Add a 44th pitstall.
    ; regular stalls
    stall_43 = 3802.00 49 0.33

    Some of the ai may be over the mandatory pitroad speed just past the line but they are not incurring a penalty.
    [Assigning pitroad subsurface back to 3782.22 will absolutely insure the ai will be at the pitroad speed limit at the yellow line.]


    If you're encountering ai exiting the pitstall colliding with those already running down pitroad, [ pit_lane_0 ] stall_exit_goal_dlat_offset = -3.5 (originally -5.5) may alleviate some of that.
