Collect ideas what to ...

... change to make races need more of our skills

TORCS races on static tracks, we can use dynamic changes like

  • raining
  • wind
  • oil
  • obstacles

... add to the simulation to make driving need more of our skills

To be able to simulate modern driver assistance systems, we should implement

  • single wheel braking
  • dynamically adjusted suspension
  • automatic wings (activated by car's speed)

... add to the new UI to make use of it while testing our new modules

  • Handle complex parameter sets instead of select all settings individually
  • Filter the driverlist (Type of cars, type of robots, ... ) to get a faster overview
  • Give a warning if illegal selections are made

Example: TORCS crashes with out a warning, if no driver is selected. The point is, double clicking to a driver shows the drivers data in the middle "selected" area (car type etc.) but doesn't select the driver to the selected drivers list! So it is a common user error to select no driver and wonder why the system dissapears from the screen while starting the race.
