Race Control should be improved

at 0:55, "L des as" who was behind me before entering the corner, made mistake with his break, and pushed me away(with collision)

I was out out track limit, and I got penalty (???)



Here is my thought, that tiny bit of time(0.1sec) "L des as" was ahead of me(because he pushed me out of track limit)

And when I was back on the track, I was ahead of him. Then, this foolish AI Race Control thought I was make advantage of track limit.

I was victim of accident, and I got back on my position back, but I got penalty???(Sadly, in the heat of race, I didn't notice the Race Control letters and I got bigger penalty, like DT and I screwed my race)



I don't blame "L des as", because its racing accident on cold tires.

But AI should be improved, if you guys want a strick Race Control.

I hope we get a better version of Race Control AI soon!
 
Sorry man, I'm going to be unpleasant. You are driving with the guidance line activated, so you have what is called tunnel vision. You look at that line and take no interest in anything else happening around you.
This isn't Motorsport, it's not simracing, and it's not even the same game I'm playing.
The first rule should be "don't ruin other people's fun", if you don't know the circuit you shouldn't race online with other people. First you should race offline against the AI, and learn the circuit.
It's not forbidden, but you can't really complain.
 
I'm not going to be harsh as such, but Alex does have a point. Two points really. If you're concentrating on that racing line and need it to drive the circuit, you won't be concentrating on other things, such as the penalty warning (which is quite clearly displayed - whether it was fair or not) and more importantly the cars around you. I counted several contacts which needed to be avoided, again, even if they weren't your fault. That racing line needs to be turned off as soon as possible and if you do still need it to learn the circuit(s), you really should be doing that offline, not while racing others. It's not for me to critique anyone else as I'm a slow old racer, but you do a fair bit of lunging into corners which is going to result in an equally fair number of contacts, IMO.

Guys .... I bought LMU and I have 100% right to complain its product. No opinion about Race Control AI? Then go off.

You might have better things to spend time on, rather than nagging Beginner Class driver, new to simracing.

I felt that in Racing(I play ACC and LMU), that there are many cars around my car, they cover the circuit, that I cannot find apex or curb just an inch in front of me. I tried to turn on racing line, but I felt its not very good too(I felt that racing line is not very accurate, and its disturbing sometimes).

Im quite new to LMU(ACC is 150hrs, LMU is only 20hrs) and english is not my mother language, so I missed it(I was concentrating on the other cars around me)

Truthly, I was little agressive in that race(Best race start ever, like I said, only 20hrs of playing. I was crossing my limit) . I should cool my head now. Thanks.

Just be aware of your car is positioning. If there are cars with an overlap on your car you can't just turn in and expect them to disappear. Learn also to take different lines into corners because you won't always have a perfect line especially if you are side by side with other cars.

Be aware of surroundings at all times and you will improve. Sticking rigidly to a racing line marker won't help, you need to relax a little and let the car flow with rhythm through the turns and set yourself up for the corner entry and exit.

It is very easy to blame the game when you are an inexperienced driver. But also analysing your own performance and lines you take will help you improve your driving.
 
You completed a pass outside of track limits (That is illegal anywhere, and the fact that he bumped you isn't an excuse). You then ignored the message telling you to give the place back for quite a while, instead going all vigilante and blocking, then forcing the guy behind off track, causing a collision in the process. Whatever penalty you got was too lenient if anything...
You can complain about problems inherent to the game but in this case the problem is your driving, and you shouldn't complain about a penalty as a result of that.
 
I just had a strange, almost amusing one.... Finished 5th in an Aston race at Spa, despite parking up safely off track and taking a minute and a half to answer the front door! What I didn't realise when I parked up was that with no handbrake, the car would run forward and tap the guardrail... over and over again. 25 contacts with immovable!!! The strange thing was that it gave me no clear laps at all out of the 9, despite that being my only 'off'....
