Background: My work has often led me to cleaning up confusing/lacking documentation and putting structure around processes.
We need a process to allow new SC owners (like myself) to be able to load up and drive. I’ve spent hours now searching through haphazard posts, year old posts I don’t know are still relevant or not because of all the sim/firmware updates since then, screenshots of FFB settings, randomly shared config files - this is insane.
- For each game, grab up to 3 cars that have known, great force feedback and overall physics fidelity.
- For those cars, have users post their best True Drive and in-game FFB settings. Ideally, this would be text/database based rather than pictures but pics will still work.
- Those uploads could be upvoted in a way where a consensus emerges.
- Put instructions for each sim on how to apply these (as some require custom FFB files).
- If the main user keeps tweaking and improving their FFB files? Allow them to version in new settings so that you don’t have to go searching there’s just a single source of truth for users that want to make a name for themselves.
Basically, this stuff needs to be simple. Is FFB subjective? Sure, but this is a cop out. When the devs release 1st party files as templates and then the community immediately all say to start changing things? This is not good enough.
