General Chat - ZSC / Re: On corner signs
« on: March 20, 2019, 05:30:50 AM »
I figure I could make a few more tests and create such page. Actually, there should be some hub in the wiki or here in the forum that leads to topics on research, the internal workings of Stunts, etc. Many aspects of it are a lot more useful than this one and several have already been exposed, only separately.

Thanks for adding it to the Wiki, and also for the other edits -- that article about the replay file format had been a glaring omission! About the hub/category, though the Modding caegory had been created with that in mind, "Internals" is probably a better name for this sort of thing.

(By the way, I'm thinking about moving this topic to the "Stunts Code Extraction" subforum, so that it is easier to find.)

Competition 2019 / ZCT211 analysis
« on: March 19, 2019, 03:11:49 AM »
Here is a top 6 analysis for last month's race -- it's been a while since we last did that, and also it is a nice opportunity to try it out with multiple cars:

(From the second table on, Audi times were corrected by the car bonuses to fit the Ranger ones.)

Some of the highlights:
  • Sectors 1 (GAR-esque) and 3 (flat out) do suggest a Ranger advantage under those bonuses.
  • Other sectors, however, gave the Audi pipsqueaks enough margin to (barely) remain in contention. There was the high speed outer line in sector 5, and, in my lap, one extra shortcut in sector 2 that wouldn't be as useful with the Ranger due to the lower attainable speeds.
  • While one would be forgiven for thinking nothing interesting would happen in sector 3, it turns out that Seeker managed to claw back almost the whole gap to Marco there, centisecond by centisecond.
  • Following that, Marco managed to fend off the challenge with a quite excellent line through sector 4 (the first dual-way sector).
  • Marco's lap also features an interesting inner dual-way cut through sector 5. Among the top 6, the only one to attempt a somewhat similar line was Heretic -- the alternative provided by outer line, though, meant the inner line was rather less effective with the Audi than with the Ranger.

There's an option to skip empty cells and leave gaps in Excel, but not in the web one I've used to look at the spreadsheets above.

If we are talking about the first xlsx, I suspect the problem has to do with a handful of merged cells I used for layout. In any case, here is a text version of the lap tables:

I didn't add charts to the previous spreadsheets... They aren't fully representative (I have no idea about how to plot the incomplete lap), but anyway here they are!

Final standings of today's races:

Sunrise

1. Duplode -- 7 laps; 1 element; first hill drop
2. dreadnaut -- 6 laps; 25 elements; flooded road before slalom
3. Cas -- 6 laps; 8 elements; tunnel after jump
4. sd4000 -- 5 laps; 45 elements; first half of 180° banked corner
5. Marco -- 5 laps; 34 elements; just before leaving second hill
DSQ. Overdrijf -- 6 laps; 6 elements; first ramp (late submission)

Fastest lap: Duplode #7 -- 1:05.15

Sundown

1. Duplode -- 6 laps; 29 elements; hill drop before loop
2. dreadnaut -- 6 laps; 19 elements; chicane on hilltop
3. Marco -- 6 laps; 9 elements; first bridge ramp
4. Overdrijf -- 6 laps; 5 elements; first half of 180° banked corner
5. sd4000 -- 5 laps; 41 elements; right turn before tunnels
6. Cas -- 5 laps; 40 elements; chicane after banked corner

Fastest lap: Duplode #5 -- 1:10.35

(Technical note: the element counts refer to how many track elements were completed in the final, incomplete lap. The element mentioned after the count is where the car was at 8:00.00, and the first element after the completed ones. For instance, if someone reached the finish line at exactly 8:00.00, the count would be 0, and the described element would be "start/finish icy road".)

For complete lap charts, see the attached spreadsheet.

Yup; I will show up there in a little while. (Everyone else: feel free to join too  ;))

Should we aim at Sunday 17th, afternoon/evening then? [...] Who else is in?

Meee!!  8) Any time on Sunday (or even Saturday after ~8PM GMT) is fine for me this weekend.

« on: February 23, 2019, 02:43:43 AM »
There is the Track File article in the Wiki, though the arrangement of the tables there isn't necessarily as tidy as one might want.

For reverse lookups, this function in the Carography code might be convenient. (On what things like "Q3" and "Sin" mean, see here and here.)

As a present, the best of dozens of replays I tried before finally managing that last powergear turn. The last 15-20 seconds are in flight, and the time is great. Unfortunately, for maybe a couple of meters, there are 33 seconds of penalty :P

That's fun  :) Truly, a few meters more and you'd have gone over the last icy tile and then hug the final straight tightly enough for a legal lap. And of course congratulations!
