PostSubject: Introduction of OGL's Research & Development system for Season 8   Thu Sep 29, 2011 9:06 am

OGL's Research & Development system.


For season 8 of the OGL F1WC we will be introducing the ability to upgrade and develop your car as a team. The system is not intended to be 'a development race' meaning that everyone will receive the same amounts of upgrade of point's per development stage and not awarded on race win's and race perfomance etc. It sounds complicated but its all done within the physics and has been tested thoroughly!, Each upgrade adds a benefit but will also come at a small cost! Details on how the system will work can be found below -

Areas of the car to be upgraded -

Blown Diffuser - Adds peak diffuser downforce levels but adds more fuel consumption

Engine - Adds more power at the cost of fuel consumption

Suspension - Improves stability to the tyre improving wear rates

Wings - adds the ability to improve the levels of wing both front and rear

Brakes - adds stability and reduces temperature and wear.

FURTHER DETAILS ON WHAT EACH UPGRADE WILL BE POSTED CLOSER TO PRESEASON.

Each section has 4 levels including the standard package and the points for each upgrade are as follows

STANDARD PACKAGE - FREE
UPGRADE STAGE 1 - 25 POINTS
UPGRADE STAGE 2 - 50 POINTS
UPGRADE STAGE 3 - 100 POINTS


STARTING POINTS WILL BE 100 FOR THE PRESEASON

Like real life you will get a small amount of points to develop the car in pre season and then at set stages through the season will be confirmed soon.

One thing to point out is that by the end of the season you will not be able to have upgraded all area's of the car and maximise all areas to stage 3 so you will need to really think about what direction you choose to develop the car.

Upgrades will be made for the team and NOT induvidual cars! You decide as a team and the Team Manager of the respective team will be in charge of what to upgrade for that team!

Further details will be released towards in 2 weeks following the final round of season 7. The reason for this announcement is to give you all an idea and something to look forward too!

We have plenty of time to answer any questions you have on this system, please use this thread to ask anything or post any thoughts on it!

Sounds good. it reminds me the SP mods, but when there is development is a little different.
Also i hope this to cut a little the speed of the fronts, but i dont think so Razz

And i want to say that is a good idea to open a thread so all the drivers can post their ideas for other parts of the championship. For example i have a very good idea for the contracts section.
I think is very interesting, so if you want i can post it here or send it with pm to someone admin etc

Well, i asked Florian and they said to send a pm. I sent it, so if they think that is good or something i think that the guys will give it to all for discussion etc
I have not a problem to post here, but from the moment there isn't a thread to post our ideas in general, the right think is to send a pm and not spam it. Wink

unrelated just for laughs Smile

So drivers or teams that earn points in a race can use them to upgrade the trams cars?
Does this mean the gap to the front runners is going to get bigger?

yep lees right! its a development war as such! each team is allowed the same amount of points and its up to them to decide what they develop.

There's no testing the upgrades as such! for e.g you won't have all available at the start just to see which is best! Ita more like real life where u choose a direction for the car.

correct me if im wrong but i think its just pick something you want and it will be put on the car deal done. and later point of season you get some points again and you again decide what you wanna spend em for right

sounds quite easy to me

No there's stages of every upgrade, you dont pick and get the highest tier upgrade straight away with the extra points you can get the lowest tier of another upgrade or upgrade the one you've already got

I have the same question with Florian.
The way we are upgrading.
I don't think that we are upgrading with our points from the championship, because he said that the development stage is not awarded on race win's and race performance. And the points are exactly our performance right?
Thats my though and my question too.

To answer your questions points do not depend on your performance! Each team is given the same amount of points to spend. Each upgrade has levels of upgrades so u buy level 1 then level 2 etc.
