So You Think You're Fast? AC Hotlap Challenge: KTM X-Bow @ Highlands Short

Recommended Posts

full-19230-51132-full_19230_49230_untitl

AC has an official in game app for comparing times with your Steam friends, so time to have a little fun!

You have 7 days to post your best time and see how you compare.

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: KTM X-Bow @ Highlands Short

Prerequisites:

Game Settings

Launcher settings for ABS and TC must be set to FACTORY.

(once on track you can change the settings if the car allows it)

Stability OFF, Fuel ON

Penalties must be enabled

 

Before you can start posting laps you need to do two things (if you haven't already)

1. Activate the in game Friends Leaderbord. To do this, take to the track and move your mouse to the right hand edge of the screen to activate the apps sidebar. From here select the Friends Leaderboard (it's near the bottom)

You should then see a leaderboard similar to this. You can drag it round to a suitable position.

Once the app is active it will log your laps and list those of your Steam Friends.

2. In order to get an accurate set of comparison of times you will need to add people to your friends list. You should be able to find all of us at the SimHQ Motorsports Steam Group. Just send out friend invites to those taking part and when they accept you can see their times on your leaderboard.

I have most people already, but if you want to enter, please add me as a friend first (if you haven't already), then post a time. I'll periodically post my leaderboard in the following post so you can all see who you need to befriend. Hopefully after a short while we'll all be bosom buddies.

Have Fun!!!

The challenge is open immediately and will expire exactly 14 days from the time of this post. :)

Hey DB do you think we can have a 2nd separate SYTYF challenge during the F1 season? The challenge would end at the end of the race and the next challenge would start the day after. I have listed a bunch of F1 mods in another thread that we can all use (no DLC required).

I like the idea. I would like to see the 2013 Ferrari Opponennts mod + Ferrari 2013 of course. At least to see Ahmad taking it against Archii:popcorn:

We lately run of out talent to challange Archii and I really count on you @Ahmad.

The offline version of the mod provides all cars balanced to real world performance, so we could also making it even more fun where quickest guys take slower cars and vice versa. We have a month to go to establish this peculiar BOP, untill F1 season starts. Or even without that, two years of SYFYAF gives us clues. Like the one that @archii16 has to be allocated Manor with broken gearbox ;-)

 

P.S. Sorry for missing recent challange, crazy schedule at work

I like that idea.  Might occasionally need a bit of leeway as i'm away from home with work quite a bit.

Keeping track of who is using what car would be tricky. Also not sure how this would work with the in-game leaderboard as it only shows times for exact car/track combinations.

My testing time is limited so reccomendations for mods greatfully accepted. :)

you are right, those are different cars, so no hotlap challenge but one day we could do a race like that with handicap by driver taken into calculation ;-)

I recommend the F2002 for the first challenge (and others, we can re-use): http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/ferrari-f2002.8703/ (and here's a bonus skinpack http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/f2002-community-skinpack.9520/)

And this for the Albert Park track: http://assettocorsa.club/mods/tracks/melbourne-grand-prix-circuit.html#en

You can start the challenge now or in a couple of weeks but the idea is that we will get to know the track in the lead-up to the GP and then once the GP ends so does the challenge (with your leeway).

I really really like the F1 SYTYF idea, since im a huge fan of F1 and open wheelers! Bring it on.

Just a quick heads up.  We'll go ahead with this using Ahmad's reccomendations above.  The challenge starts immediately and will run until Midnight GMT on the 26th.

I'll make the official post when i'm back home (either later tonight or early tomorrow).  Great idea BTW.  Thanks Ahmz ;)

Not sure what happened to the latest challenge.  My post seems to have dissapeared.  :(

Could be something to do with the forum problems earlier in the week.  Just checking with the boss.  F1 SYTYAF will be resumed shortly (hopefully!)
