MINORATING, a server-side plugin that aims to copy the detailed safety rating and iRating features found within iRacing, has been released for Assetto Corsa, a move which in theory should see an improvement in the number of clean and competitive races taking place on Assetto Corsa’s online servers.
After it was revealed that Assetto Corsa would open the doors for modders to implement iRacing-like ranking systems via automatically generated incident reports and race reports after each multiplayer race, MINORATING have posted the extensive list of details surrounding their server-side plugin on their official website.
It‘s a lot to go through, but the overall goal seems to aspire for a deeper meaning behind each online race, as the current online environment in Assetto Corsa is more akin to public trackdays and Forza-like lobbies, with very few serious racers coming out to play. Along with an extensive safety rating system, MINORATING includes a proper ELO performance ranking aspect – although it’s only available to Class A and Class B drivers.
It remains to be seen how many people will implement this third party app into their dedicated servers, but if it catches on quickly, we’re looking at a giant shift in the way people play Assetto Corsa online.
