One question guys: I can have a widget with the current standings. Essentially it will show 3 columns: position (e.g. 1, 2, 3, ...), race number (or 3 letters of the rider name) and time gap.

The time gap can be either from the leader or from the rider preceding. I can have an option to show one or the other, but I thought that having both alternating would be better.

Example: for 3 (or 5 seconds) it will show your gap from the leader (e.g. +21.325 seconds) and then for 3 seconds your gap from the rider preceding you (e.g. +4.758 sec), and so on, alternating.

Question: how can I make it visually clear which one is which ?
Color coding seems bad. One thing I can try is to use "at 21.325" for gap from 1st and simply "+4.578" for gap from previous. If anybody has a better idea ...

doubledragoncc

How about simply "1st +21.325" for 1st and keep  "+4.578" for previous I think it is self explanatory that way.

Hi Max, here is my opinion:

You should try to show this panel the most visually possible. In rFactor, Iracing or simulators like those there is a "black box" that show us the difference between cars ahead and behind. Something like this:



From left to right: position, number, name and gap.

According to colors:

- Red: cars/bikes with 1 lap or more than you
- Blue: lapped cars/bikes
- White: cars/bikes in current lap with you
- Orange: You

I don't know if this is possible with your plugin but I think that it's the most visually tool for us. The colors is only an example...

The one problem with so much info is it takes longer to read and can be confusing. Any info needs to be as simple and short as posible and need only a glance not to be read if you know what I mean.

Also for old farts like me or those with a smaller screen it could be hard to read or take up too much screen space.

Is not +ve numbers and -ve numbers enough to identify when it means u are behind or in front?

Like in Alvaro's pic - +ve gap (to leader) -ve gap (rider behind).

If you really feel the necessity to have both then personally I think keep it as an option would be better, otherwise unless it can be made clear which action is in operation then confusion will rein.
But a simple colour difference of the number field would suffice surely? White(black bordered #'s) = diff from next preceding rider, Orange(black bordered #'s) = diff from leader. No need for multi-coloured rider names and bike #'s because that would lead to a terrible looking multi-coloured mess.

But if I was you I would just try to replicate the actual real MotoGP TV overlay style, capabilities and colours and nothing more.  ;) 8)
