Support / Re: Questions about dedicated server
June 26, 2022, 06:52:38 PM
As I understand it: Servers don't need a GPU at all except for something to operate the server user interface graphics, but certainly nothing that would need great expense.

I would think a very good & fast upload & download fibre-cable internet connection, plenty of SSD RAM and a reasonable CPU & motherboard would be far more important hardware considerations for a fast & capable dedicated server?
Personally speaking, I think all todays PC/Console racing sims can do at best is provisionally-familiarize one with the track demonstrated, that is all.

I think if anyone is seriously taking anything extra from their sim experience onto a real road/track they are looking to end up six foot under in a pine box. Lols! :o

General Discussion / Re: Spam

Totally agree with what you're saying here DD... You have my support 1000+%

@Piboso: At least try something instead of simply relying on admins to police and delete bots & spam on the forum... there are a multitude of solutions out there.

When all the lemmings in society decide to commit hara-kiri by following the crowds to the discord... should we all follow?? :o  :P

Down with crappy discord..... Long live the Forum!! ;D

https://www.google.com/recaptcha/about/  at least give it a try, eh?  :)
No worries mate.... Whatever you and your web-host did  appears to have sorted the issue out and secured your website... I'm now not getting any unsecure flag from my anti-virus anymore. ;)  8)

DD.... I've always found https://www.flickr.com/ to be easy and user friendly in being able to upload and share pictures to forums and blogs mate.... They have a free account you can use too, similar to the way MEGA have a free account..... take a look and see what you think.  ;)
This site is flagging up as a security risk for relying on an  an un-matching security certificate.... usually means admin for the site is trying to use someone else's security Cert... Good idea to sort it out mate before your site gets black-flagged web-wide. ;)
Okay DD.... Just keep us updated when you start, mate.  ;)  8)

I don't want to take away from the subject of your thread mate, just delete these last few posts if you want. ;)  8)
That sounds very interesting DD..... I'll be following your progress on that project closely, mate!  ;D  ;)  8)

You should try DCS World if you want some amazing action rather than a leisurely stroll through the park with FS2020... as they say..... What would you rather drive, an F1 car or a Moggy-Minor. Lols!! ;D  ;D

Wonder where they'll put all of those  ;D

They already now that it's not viable to operate HGV's via battery electric power alone because of the power to weight ratios.... To pull the heavy loads trucks pull the batteries they'd need would be terribly heavy... it's a bit like the rocket fuel equation, where the heavier the load the greater weight in fuel is needed to lift it; it gets to a point where the fuel load(the number of batteries for a given travel distance needed in this case) would be too heavy to lift.

You'll find that all the current electric powered trucks are Green Hydrogen fuel cell operated... currently they are already operating in the USA now, apparently. ;)

Now the Battery Electric establishment are getting scared Green Hydrogen fuel cells will totally take over, so they are now promoting battery for normal car drivers and Hydrogen fuel cell for the Trucks, vans, etc that pull the heavier loads. Lol, they have to secure their incompetent huge investments they've already put into battery electric, right. Haha!

It'll all be Green Hydrogen fuel cell Tech in the end, mark my words. Lol!  ;D  ;D
Interesting DD... Enjoyed watching that mate. 8)

Have you ever thought about making good quality flight joystick/throttle and rudder assemblies too for flight sim users?
The good quality flight control systems are ridiculously expensive, and the best systems have to be imported from the USA at obscene import duty and costs amounting to close to £100 on top of purchase price.

Sorry for going off topic..... Just a thought mate ;)
I agree with you mate, that's why for business/commercial and HGV's they'll be using green hydrogen fuelled vehicles because battery electric isn't a viable option, especially for HGV's pulling heavy loads.

But appears the powers that be are seriously pushing the electric power for vehicles, so it's very likely to be Hydrogen fuel cells that win-out with this, but I do understand where you're coming from, mate.  ;)

Hope we get to ride again on 2t's sometime online m8


Yeah, I know you did DD, and thanks for that mate, appreciated.  ;)  ;D

As soon as the next beta is released and so long as the replay issue with the GP500 category has been sorted and all the features and fixes work as stated then I'll be back riding and probably modding again mate..... It's been a long time DD, it would be great to ride with you again for sure mate. ;)  8)

Thanks for that, Piboso, appreciated.  ;)
Thank you Piboso.  ;)
