Settings of the weather add-on

In races you have the possibility to allow random weather changes. To configure it, you have an additional tab “weather” on the race start dialog where you can set up the

probability for rain to happen during the race. Besides that, you can set up how the cars should behave on “wet” and “dry” track.

It started raining.

Before the rain starts, there will be a voice over which lets you know that the rain is about to come. When the rain starts, all cars will be slowed down (if they’re on slick tires).

As soon as they enter the box and stay there for at least 10 seconds (or the amount of seconds you configured), the tires will automatically be changed to their counterpart (slicks to wet tires and vice versa – there are only two types of tires).After the tire change is finished, the speed will be automatically adjusted to the configured values again.

When the rain ends (the duration is random), there will again be a voice over telling you about it. The drivers should then go to the pits again and switch to slick tires. Please note that the speed adjustments can only be applied to cars which are on the track in this moment.
