Global Map Opponent Data
Hi, would it be possible to make available the Opponent Dot Data in Global Map?
I am trying to color each opponent dot in Global Map a different color and change it's text from a number position.
Is there a way I can call System.Func`3[Jint.Native.JsValue...] with Convertible interface using javscript and pass in the keys that I see are available?
Alternatively, if the rendering engine is HTML, is there a way I can inject a CSS style block into the Global Map view's DOM?
Hi ! Unfortunately what you are trying to do is not possible, simhub only supports one opponent style and you can't make it dynamic per opponent.
Even if the display is running using HTML it's only a "rendering" medium, it's tightly bound to the simhub "server code" and you can't change it's behaviour.
Also my C# knowledge is extremely limited and I haven't tried to invoke the convertible interface in any proper way. I don't know much about Jint either and how to convert Jint.Native.JsValue. I will look into that next!
I've just started exploring creating my own dashboards, and I'm glad I found this topic early on as this is what I'm also trying to achieve. I fully understand that it is not possible to differentiate opponents using the SimHub data directly.
@ispano6 would you mind sharing on what you have been able to achieve with CSS? I'm looking to have most of my opponents look the same, but wanted to introduce highlights to show if a driver has done their best lap of the session (green), or if a driver has done the best lap of anyone in the session (purple). Something like you see on the far right in this linked image.
I'd be grateful for any advice anyone can offer. Thanks folks!
Reviving this topic with a question to @wotever:
- Has this changed from 2020?
- Is it possible to get the data from all opponents (for iRacing)?
(Currently we only get -4 and +4 opponent data from telemetry)
- How is the map created with all opponents when telemetry data only outputs the front and back 4 cars?
(is this a plugin that needs to be created?)
My goal is to make colour-differentiated race classes when race classes are within the same car/class, e.g.: GT3. Imagine diff Pro to Pro/Am kind of stuff.
Some leagues make it on the driver name, some make it via the car number, etc.
Add-On Question: is it possible to add a "ghost" dot or line for the car with a configurable delay (e.g.: in seconds) to be displayed on the map?
