Dig deep Walken.

Just wanted to say I loved every minute of my golden GPBikes years. Multiple GPB licences held and worth every penny for the enjoyment I got out of it. Thank you PiBoSo!

But yeah, no engagement with the community and years of forlorn hope later, I just check up here now and again now (well quite regularly actually cos Im a mug). Grateful that people like the Prune-Man keep it alive with the same enthusiasm we had back then, shaking my head but smiling as the same conversations go round and round and round and round. The real hilarity is someone wrote this same kind of message when I joined. Glad no-one searches the forum to see if their post has already been written a million times, or the forum would be up with the Dodo's.   :-*

But I still have some hope for the game but I understand now it may not be in my lifetime and Im not even bitter. The man has his plan and I can respect that even if I cant understand it.

I do wish you all the best, PiBoSo, with your games and life. In the mean time there are other games for me to get enthusiastic about.

See you all at GPB V1 boys.

(Dont mind my signature I thought it was fitting).

Looking good so far DD.   8)

I doubt I have anything you want to use but feel free to ask.

Constructive criticism for me personally is red writing on black strains my eyes. White on black is not the best either but my eyes are migraine fecked so its worse for me.  Other is get some high res pics and the Concept page is TL;DR maybe break it up into 'Tell me more' sections ?   Back in the day I used to design websites for businesses but things have moved on somewhat so all I can say is keep it clean and simple with obvious navigation routes.

Good luck with it.  :)

Interestingly, Bike SIM Experience has just uploaded a Facebook video of the rider running to his bike after a crash, so I hope piboso will implement something simila


yaaaaaaaay! SBK2001 style!   8)

Been asked for here a zillion times too, maybe its on PiBs to-do list.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (bse) has never looked so good (British meat sad joke)

Cant wait to try it.  :D

+1 on that KG.

I have more than enough room for another Motorcycle game. There really is no need to compare games to reach a 'best' conclusion. Only compare to see what's best about each one.

Bring it on!

If we were sat in a pub I could enjoy discussing this stuff at length hehe. Old codgers in the lounge bar getting wobbly. It's too much effort typing on a phone.

Commercialisation means decisions made by business men where results are not trophies but bonuses. If you can keep the money down you can keep the sport spirit as it will be run by enthusiasts of the actual sport.
Bernie Ecclestone - F1s saviour? I don't think so.

I agree with your sentiments but I feel young fans who never knew any different will accept it as it is, much like their grandkids will laugh at them when they hanker for the old petrol powered days and bikes that can't fly. ;D

I consider MotoGP to be the bike equivalent of F1.
The aim being to encompass the latest technology and push forward with new technology. It's the experimental testbed of the biking world only restricted by some rules that keep things ' reasonable '.

As much as I want racing to be better in Motogp and F1 it will always be ruled by budgets and technological abilities which actually makes it interesting in its own right (if the viewer is engineer minded).

When I want to watch good racing on similar machinery I head for WSBK/BSB every time though. Saying that, the recent MotoGP racing has been good - a tribute to the rules balancing development/cost and viewing pleasure (close racing). Compared with the rules of F1 which made the gaps so huge the racing died in recent history.

But the rule makers have a difficult job effectively guessing what should be done and amending them endlessly as technological advances to find ways to exploit them.

I hear what you are saying with cost and rider aids. To us the cost seems high but nowadays in their world it's normal operating expense especially for R&D oriented projects. Rider aids may be an allowed rule because it's technology that can find its way to the road, especially if it makes biking safer (ah the ever quest to do things safer as common sense ebbs away).

For one of your points, Hawky, I might agree especially with the benefit of hindsight - in-race telemetry. Hmmm texts  ::) maybe just put a smartphone on the dash, Oh wait...

IMO all racing suffers when money becomes a major factor.  Which is why racing like the IOM and it's entourage of smaller Street races are the last gladiatorial bastion of rider skill versus machine and environment. The last attempt at commercialising the IOM was thrown out thank the heavens but it's just around the corner. Those back pockets are twitching.

Consider ourselves lucky to have been witness to the legendary eras of motorcycling and pity our sons and daughters.  :D

Is the server function tested yet? Does it make a Dynamic track non dynamic? 
As Hawk says the tracks without a Dynamic version  need to be kept. Delete nothing yet.

Maybe the question should be does the server function work and are Dynamic tracks (in races - think netcode ) actually proven yet. 10 years of not working vs a couple of comments saying they are Ok raises my caution flag. (yellow)

Collideable or not as an option would be best I reckon. I think it's a good idea.  :)

Yes that's a nice video!

So I see a driver training area - aka a track for KRP/mopeds. An off road area and the main track for WRS, and the main track for GPB.

So 1 model that could be implemented in all three Piboso masterpieces.

Value for money
Value for effort
Cutting edge motogp circuit.
Benefits all games.

Boom.

Here's an opportunity? :

The Finnish GP at KymiRing is set to join the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship calendar from 2020
