I want to make a suggestion to stop the randomness implemented in the game about the weather since that infamous Season 62 at Kyalami race happened.
Was ugly. Such wild things should not happen (ever!!!).

Indeed... and it has happened from time to time since then. That should be erased from the game

Weather randomness is one of the best random parts of the game in my opinion. There is a big element of randomness that keeps the game fun and makes watching the race interesting, but it is also easily controllable if you make good strategies. It also allows people to be more/less risky depending on if you need vital points to retain or just want a safe finishing position.

Take last race for example, 90-95% chance of rain in the 1st quarter, it rains for the entire first quarter. Surprising?

15-25% chance of rain for the 2nd quarter and it stopped raining. There were different strategies you could make depending on if you think it will still be raining later in to that quarter or if it will stop earlier... or not stop at all.

15-25% chance of rain in the 3rd quarter and it didn't rain.

60-70% chance in the 4th quarter. This was the only time the weather change could be classed as slightly surprising, but even then there was a pretty obvious chance once you know the race will last over 90 minutes.

There were different strategies for last race... how much fuel you could put in Q2? Fuel for 30 laps would be faster but riskier than fueling for 50 laps, but it would have paid off last race. Do you do a wet/dry setup? If you were desperate for points you could even set tyres to dry when it starts raining, given that there was a big chance it could happen at the end of the race and not in Q2/Q3. Again that would have paid off, but had it rained during Q3 anyone doing that strategy would fall to the back.

My point is that the weather is one of the best random parts of the game because it opens up so many new strategies and gives great chances for some people to retain that otherwise wouldn't but has the draw back of being more risky. It also makes the races fun to watch.

If you don't make weather random then either every race is fully dry or wet, or the forecast tells you the exact lap it will start/stop raining. Isn't that boring? :P

Long post, but the topic gets brought up every time rain is involved in a race and personally I wouldn't want it changed.

Maybe an extra subcategorie on the main page, with the option of adding a few favorite links.
Would be easier while playing on a smartphone of you could go directly to some pages found in the miscellaneous.
But maybe it's Just me and I lose to much time looking for the page I want.

@Ethan Littlejohns (M3) My line of thought is similar.

The problem is if the rain stops at ---> 99% rainy forecast or 1% <--- rainy forecast. This kind of prediction is irrelevant. These must be eliminated.

100% and 0% no weather change. 99% and 1% can be weather change. Such does not exist in reality. You don't have to in the game either. That's what I'm talking about.

Not to mention that this is very far from reality. Such a forecast is not issued by a meteorologist.

nice post Ethan,, mixed weather races are just more puzzle to solve, fun(not always) :D

Not sure we are on the same page here mate?? I talk about keeping some unpredictability... The difference between 1% & 0% is fairly straight forward imo.. 1 race in 75 x 17 is hardly overdoing it.. 13 seasons is a long tome to still be weeping :P

is that backing up your debate? :P

could we have a magic button that clears tagged messages?

Bit of a pain to have to untag them individually, as that appears the only way to do it (outside of deletion)

I see that when all messages are selected from the top of the inbox, we have two options at the bottom to delete all selected or save all selected. Could we have a third button there to untag all selected? Would be great, cheers el presidente!

Hold down CTRL and then press R

That'll untag all of them

It would be interesting to know at the beginning of race what type of tyres wear the rest of drivers, not having to wait lots of laps until B appears.

In the same way that it would be interesting to know at the beginning of a detective story who the killer was, rather than having to wait all those minutes =]

No I reckon it would be more like in a sport like F1 where the tyres are color coded and everyone knows at the start of a race what tyres everyone is on...

If this simulation was sort of like F1 it might work!

That would actually make the races less interesting

Except that in F1 the color coding is not for the benefit of spectators, but instead for the officials to make it easier to monitor the tyre regulations are met by the teams.

Well, there could be a box in the settings that would turn the information about other players' tyres on and off to make everyone happy.
