Alongside the next app update release will come some major revisions to the way car development and car setup works in iGP Manager. Values will be scaled by tier, to prevent “maxed out” car designs and to increase the challenge of car setup in Elite.
The new ranges will be as follows:
- 50 Design cap (no change)
- 1-20 Setup value range (was 1-50)
- 100 Design cap (was 80)
- 1-50 Setup value range (no change)
- 200 Design cap (was 100)
- 1-100 Setup value range (was 1-50)
As a result of these changes, all lap records will be reset when the update is released. For the initial release, a design of 200 points will be identical to the old maximum rating of 100. This means the gap between teams in all tiers in performance will effectively be halved, increasing closeness of the racing across all tiers and reducing the gap across the field.
To counter the halving of the performance gap, we may make several modifications to the scaling of the impacts before the release. We are able to adjust these impacts quickly if necessary, and will be monitoring feedback closely after release as well.
