PL = Push levels
KERS = Boost. On live viewer, it's the red button with the battery on it

EDIT:
@Roy: Push level 1 = Very low. Push level 5 = Very high. On live viewer PL1 to PL5 goes from left to right.

[..]but it may force the developers to continue to tweak and implement new things for the future. It will help prevent things from getting stale[..]


Totally agree with your analyze, the new version of iGP has evolved a lot and will continue to do it in the future, I also wanted people to go further and I'm sure there still are things to discover. Finally I can say even if that can spoil some people I think they'll enjoy to try new things and new approachs they didn't think about before and also that nothing replaces experience ! I forgot to mention it but doing 3 races per day in average (with 2 races at the same time) helped me a lot to get that experience.

@Javier : This is exactly what I do, when I use an abbreviation first I explain it at the same time, but as I said in the beginning of this guide all I say here is for experienced managers. I advise you to read my beginner guide when I explain how the basic stuff work and you'll find explanation about PL, KERS and other abbreviations ;)

Joey the FE calculations you gave. They just examples you have pulled out of the air and not actual figures of fuel usage?

Dumb question perhaps, but I take it that by PL1 you mean highest Push level and PL5 lowest push level?

PL 1 is Neutral & default push level that is used in Practice & Qualifying.
There is two Defensive push levels Low (PL1 -1) & Very Low (PL1 -2)
There is two Attacking push levels High (PL1 +1) & Very High (PL1 +2)

But to keep things simple everyone thinks of push levels:
PL1 Very Low
PL2 Low
PL3 Neutral
PL4 High
PL5 Very High

Joey, The Australia link to weather underground in your list is triggering a location in Canada.
The European link is triggering someplace off the coast of Africa.

The European link for Valencia is working here. The Australian one is triggering a station Albert Park, Alberta located around Inglewood Park, Calgary, Canada for me as well.

Nope, the link lists Tavernes Blanques, Spain which is in Valencia but the map is for a location off the coast of Africa. The weather for Valencia and Tavernes Blanques from the link is considerably different.
https://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=pws:IVALNCIA26 is the station closest to the track location.

Thanks for all the reports.

Just added the 4th part, updated Australia and Europe, will check other stations later. There will be a final part (5th) about miscellaneous stuff and a little iGP history (myth of mental stats, old features, differences). Once over I'll review all parts and I'll do some minor corrections, the same I did for the beginner guide.

@James : I think they are actual values but what matters are not the values themselves but the amount of fuel remaining at the end of a stint.

4th part : Other things to know (Manager level, traffic effect & pit blocks)

- level 12 pro team with level 16 team (cap is 14 in pro) => 40 + 2 * 20 => 80 exp per race


Not sure if this cap applies in lower tiers. This account of mine is level 6 and just finished a race in rookie that has a level 17 manager. I got 260xp, which is [40 + (11 * 20)]

Once again, great stuff you're sharing us Joey. Awaiting part 5!

hey, LOVE this thread

but this section: 3rd part : Improve your management (strategies, race data & weather) and the part where you talk about DATA. could you explain this more??

I get what you are saying, it's just 24.7 laps in Italy with 6 point FE is 9 laps & you said 24.7 is 10 laps with 88 point FE. Kind of got me wondering.

As far as I figured it out at moment:
TUR = Turkey race
S46 = Season number
Rachel = Which team that box is for

10C = Temperature in Celsius
29 = Total laps of race
2,45 = Fuel consumption in practice (both if the same or driver 1 and below driver 2 if different, could be max and min also)
PL1/2 = min/max Push level used
N22 = Car number?
42 = Fuel efficiency stat

Upper block = table for driver 1, Stint 1, 2 and 3
Lower block = table for driver 2, Stint 1, 2 and 3
First row = Lap number of stint, colour indicates tyre used
Second row = Fuel amount set for stint
Third row = fuel remaining after stint
Fourth row = average fuel consumption per lap for stint

Hello Joey,

i have to say thank you for the great guide! It really helped me to understand the game better. But i have one question: why is the medium a bad compound ? I didn't have any bad result with it and if i look at other Pro/Elite competions i see that most of the time they are running mediums?
Sorry for the bad English i am from Holland
Greetings !

The drivers you normally see running with Medium tires are usually inactive managers not loading their drivers setup or strategy and they were forced to use the default one.The reason why Medium is not good is that it is only 2 tenths to 5 tenths faster than the Hard tires but it wears faster than Hard.And you can push longer with the Hard tires too lol.

From my comment on Joey's Beginners' Guide:

Boomer
Mediums rarely, if not never work, especially in a league with experienced, competitive managers.

Back when beta testing (last year's open beta for new iGP) was in its early stages, Mediums were a one-size-fits-all tyre. They were the fastest tyre no matter what strat you had, perhaps even no matter what push level you had. This led to Mediums being nerfed, a much needed nerf. It was overly nerfed, however. They're not as fast as Hards over a stint, because you can push harder on H tyres, and Hards also have less tyre wear. These 2 factors are the main ones that have led to Medium tyres becoming near obsolete.

Added Part 5. It's time to tell me if I forgot to speak about something because I won't be able to edit this guide in the future.

@James : "L" means Liters and not Laps sorry, I added it just behind the paragraph in the part 2.

@Daniel : Great analysis ;)

@Sten : Boomer said all, also you have to know Medium are used by default (with PL3) when someone forgets to do setups, basically Softs and Hards can do all of the roles Meds can do in a better way (except in very rare situations).

Hi Joey,

Thanks for the guide. It gives me a good "know how to do things"!

A question about the SS - S - M - H tyres.
If you use S in PL1-modus you can drive 15-20 laps with it?
If you use H in PL5-modus you can drive 15-20 laps with it?

I am curious to your answer :)

Which track temperatures should each tyre compound be used? I'm a newcomer and I'm extremely confused as to what defines "cool" "cold" "hot" as I find that incredibly subjective.
