Could you be a bit more specific maybe and help me out :P

Oh and a bit more on topic, Tim I really like your carsets, too bad the real Honda isn't in the 2007 one. But I'll be waiting patiently :)


Nebur = Ruben... :lol: :D 8) ... easy.

First off all, ....maybe.... i will make a Earth Honda Car, but it's not for sure yet. I've done 1 try but it didn't work out because some parts of the car are not clearly visible and so are not useable to convert to bitmap... but i will give it more than one try.... 8) :P

2nd: The excel forms i use cost me a lot of time to get them right and working correctly. It just calculates an average % which i fill in the carset. So it doesn't calculate a driver grip or so. Only the random grip is calculated. The first year's making a set i did it all on paper, once i converted the paperform to an Excel form... It works, it's correct, and to be really honest i want to keep it for myself a bit.... The correct data "makes" my set... 8) :wink:

I used to have a sheet which calculated everything for me, I just had to enter the bhp and driver grip for one of the drivers and the laptimes of all drivers.

It was ugly and confusing, but I could have general performances and track specific performances as well (both qualy and race), and the data worked very well ingame.

I was lost in a hd formation, but maybe I still have it in a backup cd. I'll take a look later.

It's a very good set, I've seen the changes that show Tim watches everything (team) closely.
Excellent. 8)

Congratulations Tim! Although you (as you mentioned) don't like the design of the Honda you did a marvelous job with it! The car looks fantastic, the best RA107 I've seen for GP2 until now! Great!

And you included Heidfelds thermo-helmet (version under 30°C). Because when the temperature is over 30 degree it changes it's colour to the original design!

Really good set!

There's a press release on his helmet design company's home page called "Nick Heidfeld und JMD setzen einen neuenTrend" with a quote from Heidfeld himself on how it works and a few pictures. ;-)

There's also a longer article about it here.

Back to the Excel form for the driver performances, I've been doing a lot of work on this for my WTCC carset. For some reason it has some slightly bizarre results on GP2, everyone is in more or less the right order of speed but the cars are just not close enough to each other! I watched the WTCC races this afternoon and they finished virtually nose-to-tail. Why won't that happen for me?
