Weather: Light Thunderstorm(sol)
What is the reasoning behind this? I find it very hard to swallow this one, because:
- There is no visual rain for me. Not in the air, not on the track.
- Sound effects for rain are really bad and inconsistent.
- Sound effect for windshiled wiper is annoying. Not to mention the car doesn't have windshield wipers.
- There are no rain tyres available.
- I cannot tell any difference in grip levels from dry/wet track.

I feel like the rain effects in AC are just a make-up over the old AC engine, without any good practical use (like actually getting the track wet and affecting cars). And not a particularly nice looking and sounding make-up, if I may add.

I will leave a possibility that I have the mods istalled incorrectly, but that does not change my point about grip levels, as that should be the same for every client (I was on the practice server).

In conclusion - I see no benefits in using this weather mod, but a lot of downsides.

"Checksum failed you have been kicked out the race"

What have I missed?

Got Heli, PLP, Car Pack, Liveries, Track Pack and I think I put fixed set up in the right place.

The car got updated after round 1. Did you drove since then?

Poo. Really good race pace and starting positions for both races, could have been on the podium each time (maybe a win for R2 with the lead I had?) if it wasn't for some silly mistakes. The one in R2 especially hurt, I followed Andy off the road at the final turn (my fault), and went through the other pitlane (left side of start finish) to rejoin the track safely; rather than turn around on the grass and rejoin at a sharp angle on the final turn. As I went through the pitlane my lap wasn't counted, so I went a lap down instantly. After another off track excursion mid race, I went for a do or die move on Cheeky on the final lap. I died, knocked Cheeky off at the chicane, and waited for him to rejoin to have his place back. This let Puffy 'lap' me on the final turn, so I finished just off the podium on the road. Really gutted 2 strong results failed to materialise tonight. :(

On the bright side, I really enjoyed driving this combo, my Qualy lap was mega, definately my best of the season. I had some great battles and pulled off some good moves along the way too. Also, my PC didn't crap the bed at all tonight, and it was fine during last nights long practice session too, so I think I have solved some nasty system freezing issues that's plagued me over the last few weeks!* :D Pretty much the whole race was a smooth 90fps in the rift. 1 or 2 blips or stutters, nothing majorly distracting, but it was 99% flawless all night - that barely ever happens! Every cloud has a silver lining...

*Spolier: It was the new SSD. Went back to my old one and it's been fine ever since...
