Why should it be random? Think it would be based of the level of Head Designer etc. design team attributes/talent. Smarter designers will find the best concepts most probably. That's why you pay for them. There should be some randomness on the play, but not totally random. That's just stupid.

I see your point. But having a high designer level already gives you more designer points per hour. So you already get more chances to find a concept compared to a lower skilled development team. On top of that, lower skilled design teams have the disadvantage that a minimum skill on concepts is set. So even if they discover it, they may not be able to work on them.

Adding then an influence in the random discovery, which is absolutely 100% random by the way, would be a bridge too far in my opinion.

Quoting is indeed like this:

Ok. That's fine.

What is the timetable for the new system?

I think it should be locked already. And I mean the timetable, so we all can prepare for the new season.

At the moment I'm still working on some of the bugs. If anything game breaking appears then I'll postpone it with a season. If that's the case, then the old style of rulebook will be announced and everyone will be in the same boat. But if I can prevent that then I will.

there was no race completed yet - last div 1 race was stopped in lap 27 - is it related to any changes?

Hourly update not correct for Chassis (only, all other parts work as expected)
Points
Points spent
24 794
Research points per hour
0
Total points per hour (all parts)
10 (hourly increase: 1 )


I' m still struggling on the design on pc - but I get there, slowly...
the "Research points per hour" is not updated and always showing 0 for me - Total points is updated

Yes, that was a bug due to the way scouting works changed. Is that the total you say? As it becomes 0 if the max is reached.

@ chassis hourly investment:
The point(s) used are visible on the modifier page
- 15 minutes ago designer chassis -1

but the investment is not visible on the deployment page on the "Research points per hour "

The text "We think that there are still undiscovered concepts, so we should invest more points into this part.
However, it should be noted that it will require quite a bit of investment in development points, due to the hard discovery difficulty.
We advice to invest, but to be cautious not to invest too many points."

might be just a visual issue on the development/research page (still confusing ;) )

Live tracker/ race - the column "gap" is missing - this information is crucial when watching the race and eventually adjust the strategy

new team - developers are not yet up to speed - still modifier 0% or lower is quite harsh - I would expect at least 20%

I'm not sure if I entirely understand the issue.

It's in the "timings" tab. It was removed from overview because it's makes the page too narrow.

It doesn't take that long to increase those values. Generic concepts are always at minimum skill 0%, so everyone can always develop that. If everyone starts at 20%, then why bother with percentages if 0-20 is never achievable :)

I made some visual changes to the development pages. I will also create a development overview page if I find the time, because it would be handy to get an overview of all parts that you're actually developing. I think I'll also re-work the cars page, because it's really annoying having to go from one car to the other all the time.

Apart from the above, I fixed some bugs today as well and I went through some bug reports.

When designing a part (after researching a concept) there seems to be an issue with the weight. Tried to design a chassis (lucky concept) and the current/potential weight was the same. For grip and aero it was possible to improve the values, but for weight it was not (due to current and potential being equal). I don't think this is intended.

I don't remember exactly who reported this, but I can't reproduce it.

While developing a part, when a stat reaches the Potential maximum, the Improved rating becomes 0%. Is that correct or should the rating remain at the maximum? The same happens with weight - it becomes 0 kg. Not sure if the 0 is actually reachable.

That was indeed a display bug and has been fixed.

I made in general concept the Electrical system, Steering system and the suspension. I colleceted the kilometers in the test and the progress bar reached the 100%, i had the opportunity to develope the item, i made it, clicked the finish project button. But when i want to produce the parts, nothing happen. More precisely, if i update the page, the green box appear and say that the part has been created, and i can assign to the car too, but when i send it to test, it doestn collect the kilometers, the "upgrade unlock" stay in 0%. I made that already to delete for example all produced suspension parts and produce new ones, but the problem is the same.

This was indeed a bug and has been fixed.
