Subject: E-Track 1: Klin problems
Hi, racers

From a moment of the beginning of the race Klin will lose control constantly in the chicane 'Bus Stop', with constant exits of track. He will never regain control, adding much more if in one of these exits he tries to go to the pits: he can easily get totally blocked in the middle of the track. Klin is somehow dangerous in this track, and if any of you decide not to run him, I don't mind. I don't know exactly how this came to this point, and I don't know if I can fix it in this days.


PS: I will inform in case there is any change to this situation.

    Hi Paulo,

    Thank you for your concerns. I did a quick test with Klin and didn't see any crazy things. This chicane is from another evil track designer (not Andrew). In this race we will see a lot of incidents leading to and exiting from this chicane ;)

      Heh, at least I give my tracks plenty of run-off at the end of straights - I don't instead put a tirewall right on the edge of the tarmac, squarely in the path of any car that fails to brake!

      e-track-1 is truly evil. It starts out looking civilised, with the sand trap outside T1, but really goes downhill from there.

    Klin's stabilized now. There is a certain malformation in the accident recovery system, but this has no drastic effects (...) and I still hope to get some corrections.


    Danny: Yes, the previous version was balanced. Klin now looks for its speed limit as fast as he can, and this has somewhat destabilized the entire control system. Thanks for your test.

    I apologize. Klin is not as stable as I thought. He's much more sensitive to damage levels, and I did not see that in my tests.

      I didn't see anything bad in my race. The race will always be different from testing, it would be boring otherwise :)

        My race was to forget, really. Sad way to finish the championship.
