    Shyguy's Tire Wear Idea

    Post  Burnout on Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:03 pm

    Shyguy has told me about an interesting tire wear concept we could 'debut' in SCARTS to attract players. Here is a rundown of his idea....

    The driving terrain on each track could be activated as 'damage terrain'. This means, as long as we stay out on the racetrack logging laps, the cars will get slower and slower as higher damage is affecting the cars' topspeed. This technique will simulate 'tire wear', as in the more the tires are being used, the car becomes progressively slower as they wear.

    Now we can also encorporate this effect in the turns too. The lower line you run in a turn, the car will drain damage faster. If you take a higher line into the turns, the damage drain will be less. This opens up more strategy in how you run your race, perhaps putting less emphasis on lowlining and more emphasis on keeping your car fast longer into a run.

    We'd have to balance the effect low fuel has with the new tire wear method, and that will take some testing..... but I think a change like this will revolutionize SCARTS and add that extra new element to the racing to make it more unique.

    As I already sad in msn, I think that is a very good idea. The races will be more competitive and the disputes for positions will have be more planned.

    Smile I completely endorse this idea..

    I wonder why.. I orginally planned to try and bring it to the F1 league, but then I thought, why not here? It would work better here due to the drastically different lines you can take and the NASCAR pit strategies of taking 2 tyres etc. instead of 4 which could be simply simulated as repairing only 50% of damage.

    Shyguy, I highly doubt the guys in F1 would ever support that idea. It's different here because you can incorporate it so much easier!
