NUMBER AND PERCENTAGE OF VEHICES USED IN RACES - UPDATE
« on: April 17, 2014, 06:08:06 pm »

Top ones only:


The ones with red outaline are way overused and time to stop with them for a while:

to increase sadness, here whole list in name order

Sad to see so little ZR 350 races or Jester/Uranus compared to other sportcars.
Quite suprising is ridiculus low amount of Blista Compact, while it's nearly same counterpart (Flash) is several time more often used

Appeal to whole community:
START DOING SOMETHING BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE*




*mean help to make percentages and amounts more equal, popularise several rarly used vehicles (not talking about Tractors, Trucks etc, just very rarly used Sport cars like Euros, ZR 350 etc, or sport bikes too)

In my opinion the top2-4 deserves it, those cars are an order of magnitude more fun to drive than anything else.
But jester/uranus? I think they are almost as boring as sultan.
voodoo, sandking, banshee, zr-350 and few others could definitely be used more though.

thats my point, used jester/uranus as example, but there are plenty sport cars (not talking about slow normal cars etc) that almost nevera appear, as you mentioned ZR 350 for example

What's the worst thing - Those sport cars that are used the most, they are included in so-called Series... and there are too many series imo.

it's not the whole list, it doesn't show trailers and combinations.

trailers aren't used in any race (as main vehicle)
only trailers used as main race vehicle are airport trailers
Bag Box A - 2 races
Bag Box B - 2 races

rest may be used in races, but not as main vehicle

also the following vehicles are never used as main vehicle too:
Truck Trailers
Boxville (burglary model)
Coastguard
Dinghy
RC Raider
Reefer
Sparrow (not sea version)
Tropic

Because almost all are shit xD Only Boxville would be okay, but probably none ever used the id xD

Btw. I don't think any of these numbers can be wrong as you say max, it's just what most people like to drive. And peoples taste can never be wrong imo.

3 of them are inferior or equal duplicates (boxville, sparrow, rc raider), and the other half is boats, which we all love so much, particularily cuz of the fps limitations  :L.
I do recall race with coastguard though, so someone must have deleted it.

I have a suggestion related to this issue (which is why I didn't post it in the suggestions board), don't know if something similar got suggested already:

Pair the future money use (of buildmode) with vehicles and race mode quotas. Vehicles and race modes will have quota brackets.
For example supercars each have 3% to 5%, IV races 4% to 6%, SK 10% to 20%, strange vehicles 0.05% to 0.1%... these are random examples of numbers, might not be the best.
So if the number of races with the vehicle/mode if over the high bracket, the cost of making a race will increase (exponentially in order to make it extremely expensive if it's way over the quota). And same if the number of races are under the quota, make it cheaper.

It might take a bit of time to set quotas for vehicles and race modes but in the end it may be fun (and useful).
