"replayed" races not displaying enough info to be fun

Post by melcrose » Mon Jul 20, 2020 10:28 pm

Replayed a recent race with all ghosts loaded - it was a regatta start but didn't tell me the race was starting in XX minutes or seconds - it didn't tell me when a player turned a certain turnpoint and it doesn't replay the "text" typed by pilots (which would really add.)

Can that be fixed?

I noticed the same thing. It is only data, so it can/could be added. But, every ghost would have the same data, would increase each individual file size. So, either some kind of method to block duplicates would have to be incorporated. Better yet may be a separate file that contains the text messages and other pertinent data. That way the individual ghost files are not increased, and no special rules stopping duplicates. While the data/text/details file could be run or not.

Keeping the ghost files as small as possible (as is) with one addon data/text/details file would most probably be the best way to go.
