Handicap

Description

Handicap results screen for TimeAttack
This plugin is an alternate end results screen for TimeAttack mode, where a handicap time is applied to each players finishing time and a new Handicapped result is used instead.
The idea behind this plugin is to give lesser skilled drivers a chance to win and an extra interest for all involved.
The handicap is based on recent server results, not ladder points or server rank etc. So if the skill balance changes as players join or leave, the handicaps quickly adjust as new results are recorded.
