The Lights to Flag download folder does not include any inbuilt carsets to play. The game provides the framework for users to create their own sets to play the game with and to share with other players, as well as to download user-made sets online. Carset hosting is done via a third party server accessible from the main game menu, from which users can upload and download their sets.
If you wish to create or edit any carsets – driver ratings, car performance, circuit data, coefficients – this can be done within the Carset Builder that is provided in the game folder. Please be careful when varying coefficients in particular as they can have profound effects on the game, try not to vary any one coefficient by more than 10-20%. Please consult the Carset Builder for advice on including images with your set.
Carset data files are divided into 5 categories. Lights to Flag has been developed to allow for a wide range of carsets, including oval/circuit racing, sprint/endurance and day/night races with multiple classes. Please see the Rules section below for the capabilities of the code.
This file contains all data determining the rules of each season. They are ordered as follows:
For each driver the following data is given. All attribute values, indicated by a * are out of 10.
For each team the following data is given. All attribute values, indicated by a * are out of 10.
For each circuit the following data is given. All attribute values, indicated by a * are out of 10.
These represent numbers you can tinker to change the game to your liking. Please note unlike the other files these numbers are separated with a comma, be very careful when changing these as they can have profound effects on the game, try not to change each by more than 20%. The numbers are ordered as follows:
