Multilap time trial

Unread post by Avecezar » Fri Mar 12, 2021 9:00 pm

Allow multilap time trial.
Instead of just best lap time trial allow freely selected number of laps to be raced in time trial mode: 3, 4, 10, 50... whatever.
10 best trial times should be recorded together with best ghost.

All you wrote is already in the game, in the time trial mode. Unless you mean you want the game to remember the ghost files of more than just he best record and be able to race against more than just the best record ghost file.

Maybe I was not fully understood.
I would like an option where you select number of laps to be raced in time trial mode, then the game will record time for this specific number of laps and save the best ghost file. At present we have option to race best lap only in time trial. So it would be best 3 laps time trial, best 4 laps, best 10, 50 or whatever number you set.

As an example: set 4 laps for time trial, then game will measure time for each 4 laps. Stopper should restart after each 4 laps completed. At present stopper restarts after each lap. So there should be 10 best results for each multilap raced.

First would be 10 best results for 1 lap time trial.
Second could be 10 best results for 2 laps time trial for example.
Third could be 10 best results for 20 laps time trial.

There are currently 3 and 4 best lap times taken from race. These times are not recorded by the game unless screenshot is made. Why not implement multi-lap time trial where 10 best results will be saved automatically, preferably with best ghost.

I hope this should be clear now.
What do u think about such idea?

Multi lap driving is not time trial, time trial is doing a full lap (one lap) as fastest as possible. So no

Multilap is also time trial but on longer distance and could show consistency.

If such option is implemented those who don't like it don't need to use it, but others still could enjoy extended time trial possibilities.
This could be set in profile options like "trial numlaps=1,3,4,10" for example. If someone prefers no changes could set it to just "trial numlaps=1".

So if a player would like to test himself on 4 laps trial could have all efforts recorded in the 10 best results table.

You can launch a multiplayer game and race alone a specified set of laps and save/see your lap times in the parser. Time trial is time trial.
