I found a new program we could run races with.

Xkorinate is a program used for scoring sports. Originally used by NationStates for score various sports tournaments, we can use to run motor races that would usually not be run (Formula A anyone?).

I feel like that's kind of uncalled for.

I think we should consider it for canon series here, because I feel like experimenting with it. Very Happy

It's because it's basically just an RNG. You can set up a basic series with it, but anything better than a crapshoot is pretty much unachievable, as far as we were able to determine. Biscione/Veni Vedi Voeckler tried experimenting with it to make it more reliable and it ended pretty badly. Though to be fair, that's true of all the series he tries to run. Razz

Honestly, if anyone wanted to run something like this, you'd be better off putting something together yourself - I'd suggest borrowing tommykl's spreadsheet he uses for his 50s F1 series, but that's supposedly so complex even he's forgot how it works. Razz

Hey, just because I run a race every few years doesn't mean I never remember how it works Razz

That's, kind of the definition of not remembering. Razz

Not being bothered isn't the same as forgetting how something works, although I wouldn't blame myself considering just how complex the spreadsheet is...
