I think the weather needs to dissconnect from Dark Sky. I get races in Brazil (Because of the time of year) at 6C!

Also Poll above is to see if any other managers have had the need to swap Dry->Inter->Wet ever... Or vice versa.

it is real Time weather and the majority of races are on the northern Part of the globe, where it is Summer now, should be better towards Winter. Just In Brasil and Australia they have Winter at the moment

Speaking of weather... We need races under 5°C! Just imagine a race at -10°C, would be hard to heat tyres at all!

It's hard to worm up SS in Monaco at 15°C. At -10°C it will be impossible

That's the point 😂 it would make for more interesting races and strategy instead of just softs the whole time;)

I love the real time weather. Now you often need to check and recheck several times before each race.

I am not very fond of dark sky weather service though as they are not, as far as I am aware, measuring track temperature and water depth. I am not sure if there are any other weather service that would be easy for iGP to pull the numbers from though.

I had two races with changing weathers in my last two seasons. One race where I had to make 5 pit stops due to weather changes (50% 2x league)

Super soft is best for cold weather. If you can't worm up these tyres becase it's too cold, then you are fucked

Instead of Dark Sky. An RNG should be used. % chance of everything happening. With sensible numbers of course.

RNG will reduce the difference between managers who put in work to prepare and those who just play casually. Do we really want that?

Being able to predict the weather is one thing, having it change during the race is another. The problem I'm trying to identify is I have never ever had to change from Dry to Wet compound during a race. Ever.

You must have just been unlucky. I only played for about two months now and I had several of those races where the conditions changed during the race. Since iGP uses real time weather, it will be exactly the same probability it happens in the game as it happens in real life. Though are you running 50% length and 2x speed, your races might often be over too quick to catch it (that speed and length is however how I caught the changeable weather at least three times) . I bet you'll experience it more if you ran 100% and 1x speed.

I am against an rng weather because of the facts that you cant forecast it. I would however, consider it if iGP made their own weather service with forecasts to a virtual weather where it changed more often. I really love changeable weather and I tend to improve compared to the average manager. So yeah that would possibly be my spin on it.

I had one race last season that started dry and I changed to inters after 15 laps some others changed earlier with a little water on track
