While waiting for the physics to be fixed in Beta 15, Assetto Corsa, iRacing, or Project Cars 2?

rFactor 2.... No other choice.  :P ;D

Can understand you suggesting iRacing as an alternative but the other two are just for game-boys. Lol.  :P ;D ;D

The "Leap of Faith" was not aimed at you directly as a developer Piboso, but was for the community members who are seemingly eager to come to your defence on this matter.

Two. TWO users posted on the official GPB forum, where everyone is supposed to support the project, to show a different, reasonable, point of view.
Meanwhile everyone else is complaining.

Is it much to ask for a MINIMUM of trust?


Sometimes life feels like:


"Get outta here man!" You've faced far worse than my little rants I know! Lol! ;D ;D
Do you seriously believe I'd still be here after all these years if I didn't have at least the minimum of trust in you Piboso? ;D

Nice ani-gif there Pib.... I'm gonna have to award you an "Oscar" for that one! ;D

Leap of faith?  ???
GP Bikes has been in development for over 10 years. It's not a new project from an unknown developer.  ::)

The "Leap of Faith" was not aimed at you directly as a developer Piboso, but was for the community members who are seemingly eager to come to your defence on this matter.

With respect, I'd personally much rather know what bugs your going to sort out for GPB-beta15 Piboso? I'd honestly like you to prove me wrong on my post above. :)

I'm not happy about Lorenzo's crash, He's losing Ducati precious points towards the constructor's championship

The two riders had a better chance of beating marc, which let's face it, without him crashing/having issues, he's pretty much wrapped up this year again :P

+1 Agreed 100%, the funny thing is that most of these guys are cry babies. The new era of the sport is bit of a joke, I mean these guys don't even use profanity. It's all very clean cut and correct like the media controls them or Dorna has a gun to their heads. I'm not saying I want to see hands being thrown but for F sake at least let them say what they really feel without it being regarded as a death threat by the media.

+1 Totally agree with you Doc! ;)

Dorna have allowed the media and sponsors, as well as the teams, to become too powerful to the extent that the riders of the modern era of motoGP dare-not express their own true characters for fear of losing sponsorship or contracts...... Scrap the whole lot, I say, and let's get back to true motorcycle racing and the GP500 2 stroke Championships again. Lol!  :P ;D

With all respect to Piboso...... If Piboso has had the time to develop and implement new features like this electric-bike then he has absolutely no excuse this time around in stating any lack of available development time to fix these bugs for the beta15 release.  :P :)

Well now Hawk, let us be reasonable. The electric fix could have taken a day to pop in whereas the other fixes may require a lot more time and testing. The last thing I want is it to be pushed out and not well thought out.

Well Doc/Matty, let's wait and see what bugs we do get fixed in the beta15 release(if any) and then see if we have just been fed a quick and relatively easy ported sweetener of an electric bike feature for beta15 instead of fixing what already desperately needed fixing first shall we?  ;) :)

Talk about a leap of faith. Lol!  ;D ;D

Bloody Marceqez is at it again ;) :P

@Matty: What's MM done now? I haven't heard/seen yet.

 ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

@Hawk, Lorenzo blamed his crash in Aragon on Marc. Even though Marc was no where near him when he highsided....

There is a running joke starting up.... :P

Oh! ROFL!!  ;D ;D ;D

This is what we like to see.... The good old days of GP500 high-sides! Lol!  ;D

Looks like the EB settings were out of his liking? Or maybe just a mistake on his part?

Nahh. 50 something and I got a 250 GB hard drive and it's not even half full with all of the modding content and basically 2 copies of the bike Mod.

This is what I mean by waste of resources. Lol! ;D
I could save that 50 by just downloading the few bikes that I favour to ride most and store them on my data drive, then I can put that 50 towards something else more useful. :P ;D

Same with the trackMods.... I only download and install tracks as and when I need them and not all at once.... Just no need for it at all. :)

PS: 250GB hard drive is not very big at all these days.... For a hard drive I'd lean towards a 3TB.... SSD I would go for at least a 500GB one which are quite reasonably priced now.  ;)

I was thinking more of the waste of space usage on the working HDD or SDD?
Maybe I'm just an obsessive but I don't like masses of space taken up on my drives with data that is never going to be used. As we all know, no matter how big a data drive you get, it always ends up getting full of data we think will be useful at some stage.... This kind of data cannot be said for bike data that you know your never going to use..... As I say, maybe it's just me being a little obsessive about keeping data and things organised but I've learned from past experience that it pays to keep data/info organised and trash or archive anything that is redundant or isn't going to be used?  :)

That's where you are wrong!

BUY ALL THE HARD DRIVES :P ;D

ROFL!!  ;D
Maybe one day when we have DNA based data storage we can be as disorganised as we like. Lol!  ;) ;D


With FTP you can sync only what you want, of course. Problem is, sooner or later you'll stumble on a server telling you "Hey, missing bike", which is exaclty what the OP wanted to avoid.
Exactly the problem this thread is debating.  :)

Anyway, GB cost is plain silly today (just bought a 1TB SSD, I think my 1st HD was 10MB or something).
Buy an SSD (256GB more than enough) and put only PiBoSo stuff on it (sims, mods). All neatly organised.


Nice idea in theory, but then 256GB to put only GPBikes stuff on it would again be a massive waste of resources, right?  Besides, I already have enough space available to cope with all the mods for GPBikes but like I said, I don't like wasting space/resources on things I'm never going to use..... A more professional development approach from Piboso to solve the issue would be so much more impressive and a damn-site more efficient for everyone(including the environment), don't you think?  :)
The only people that would be pissed of about it all would be the companies who don't sell so many SSD's for people to work around these kind of issues. Lol!  ;D

Private hosting would be a better option but then the download speed will be abismol when more than one person is trying to download.

Nexus Mod Manager has recently opened its download client up to all games, just register the game and then start uploading. The you get to use their game client as well to, well, Manage Mods :P

I will take a look at the option and get back to you guys. If it does work I will be discontinuing the BikeMOD as it will be redundent and then modders should be able to upload/update as they please.

Sounds promising Matty.  ;)

True, but it's the only solution that doesn't require too much manual effort. Mega sucks (for this kind of stuff, not in general).
Also, the 10GB are downloaded once, then it's just smaller updates. $/GB is low so I guess cost is not a problem.

Of course, an integrated system in GPB would be better but that doesn't seem to be at the horizon despite the request having been made a bat-zillion times in the past few years (well, since modding was introduced, essentially).

But FTP updating alone just doesn't solve the issue of checking what you haven't got to be able to join a server unless you use it to update everything, and I'd guess a large majority of riders don't want to store 10GB+ of bike data when they are probably only going to be using 1 - 4 of their favourite bikes at most?  :)

FTP....

Still working :P

Maybe a form of this could be used for the server script with a bit of added user information to tell the user what is happening, what is being checked/compared, and which if any units have been found that need updating with a user control option for the routine to download and install/replace any missing/mismatched version units?
