Of course it's possible. Aseco may not record them, but a plugin could easily do it.

What exactly is a "sector record" anyway? I get that it's related to checkpoints, but have no clue how it's related.

Believe sector rec refers to laps mode -- each sector is a given area between cp's.

Not to sure on the specifics, but it'd be relatively simple to code up, just onplayercheckpoint, check against previous cp, saved in an array. After that, just have to modify/create the recs table, with a column for the sector number.

The only problem is once you start adding more and more event-based functions, you'll start overloading aseco... Figure a server with 30 some players, several passing a checkpoint in any given time. Add onto that processing for the cptimes plugin, dedimania, checkpoint validator, and autoqueue if you use them, and thats a lot of processing every time a play touches a cp...

To the OP, somebody else was around discussing this a month or two back... Pretty sure they posted a modified xaseco setup that accomplished it... Just do a search for 'sector records'.

That was CAR, from which this plugin for XAseco resulted.
