Automobilista 2 - Discussion Thread

if they add in the upcoming DLCs of more mainstream vehicles then yes, it might work well on especially the consoles, but its also a very niche game on PC sims which the very simple car selection with very few licenced content

The price for the Full Dlc season pass must also be lowered... more then 110€ is way too much...
 
I would think that one of the biggest advantages of using the Madness engine would be that it’s proven to work on consoles. But it is a tough sell to have a $100 season pass and so few licensed cars
 
PSA: the price for the base game is about to go up by about $10 as they reach the back half of early access. Then another $10 once it leaves early access.

Now is a really good time to get in

Gave this a spin on Saturday, hugely impressed with ffb and physics on csl elite, so much fun and couldn't stop after few hours of driving.I hope this becomes the next big thing in simracing...
 
Slightly off topic but this video from Neil summarizes it all. I concur with him, the important is the feel of driving a car, specially at limit, feel the control, the adrenaline as much as possible like in a real car.
He sais it, drive rFactor 2, AMS 1 and now AMS 2... I can't barely touch anything else, my day of AC i think have passed...

I hope AMS 2 keeps improving and maibe be modable.

I agree as well haven’t touched much of anything other than AMS2.
Still dabble in ACC occasionally but AMS2 looks much better in my opinion.
 
AM2 is really nailing that feeling of being on limit imo. I went round a corner at Oulton and pushed on too hard I finally felt like it was giving me the same feeling you get in real car when you start to take the tyres past the limits.

I first played this a 0.7 and was 'pah' but now it really is transformed. I'm addicted to hotlapping the V12!
 
So while I’ve been waiting for 1.0, I started iRacing. Worked my way through the rookie content and plopped down the (ridiculous) money for the F3 car and a couple tracks.
What I’ve found so far is that the F3 Racing in AMS2 has been cleaner and more fun than it is in iRacing.
We know Reiza will make a great product, but if this community can uphold itself to a high standard the way it has through early access this could end up being the best all around sim on the market

Got it myself yesterday after reading some info’s/threads about it and I must admit it is very fun. Even though some things still remind of pcars 2, it is a total different experience, I like the physics very much. I don’t have any comparison for most of those cars because there is nothing like it in other sims but they feel really good and behave like you‘d expect. Had a lot of fun also online racing even though not too many people online I had some fun races.
Looks promising if they keep up developing it that way, although season pass is very expensive, not sure if it’s worth it. Excited for the old Hockenheim coming soon and which gt3/gt4 will come to the game.
 
I finally got around to playing this today, does anyone else find the tuning menu glitchy? I have to roll my mouse over different sections to be able to adjust some settings (e.g. gear ratios), and I miss having a gear ratio/speed graph. On top of that, I'm suffering a lot of snapping spins under braking for some cars like the F-Classic, but maybe I just need to "git gud".
 
Hi all, just want to drop by and say Hi to everyone.

I have been on the AC forum for quite some time and now very happy to come across this dedicated thread for AMS2!!

I started in April and I am enthusiastic about the improvement of this sim. Week after week Reiza throws out update that really get us sim racers/drivers closer and closer to the feeling that we are looking for.

I have been telling all my AC friends (some listen and some don't) to give it a go. "You guys gotta try it. Its so awesome to feel the chassis's rotation, the tires compression and rebound, and sometimes the tiny hops from the tires during mid/exit corners. When you are on the limit, AMS2's tire model has a nice transition at the point of breaking traction rather than a sudden snip. This will allow you to catch the drift and give you a BIG Fxxking Smile! Even at the replay video, you can see the tire flex and car rotation which is really cool and realistic!"

Also, some people may complain about too many South American content at the moment. But to me, I see it as a great opportunity to explore other continent's racing culture and local tracks which is very cool (sorry, I only know Interlagos before AMS2 haha). Every time start learning a new smaller Brazilian local tracks was like exploring for a new treasure.

Lastly, I wish everyone have lots of fun and looking forward to a big joyful AMS2 community. Cheers!
 
So it has now been confirmed that the game will go 1.0 in mid June!
The game will also receive some more free cars and Estoril during Early Access/1.0.

First DLC will be Hockenheim shortly after Release, with Bathurst for free following on June 30th.

Spa is also coming, including 3 layouts.

AMAZING news on the car front, as historic touring cars, Group C, classic BTCC & DTM and GT1 will all be added to the game FOR FREE.

Only downside so far is that the scheduled release of GT3/4 might be postponed due to licensing.

Amazing times ahead, now is the time to jump onboard.
