    The whole purpose would be to divert some of the knuckleheads elsewhere. So the serious ones can actually race. Plus demolition derbies are awesome!

    SSRX?? really? Not much of a test track. Just a really really long boring track. I guess it could be good for testing to see if you can stay awake for a few laps ;)

    Here's a little secret that didn't make it into the game. Keep an eye on the track map on the left:

    Hi,

    Great game SMS! Been waiting for a game like this to hit console for a long time.
    Some things I would like to see added/updated. Running on PS4.

    - each session of a race event should be customisable in regards to start time (& speed), weather ( with 4x slots)
    ex, prac at 9am, overcast, qualy at 12pm, rain and the race at 3pm, dry.

    - It seems that the weather can't be set to Real Time? Either off, 2x etc

    - Time to be selectable in 15 minute increments would be great.

    - Full manual control of the car when entering/exiting pit lane/pit box and the garage. Would love to slam the pedal down and lit up the tyres leaving the box!
    At the moment, it's not so smooth and there should be a 3,2,1 count down to when the player gets back the control of the car exiting the pit line & full control of the entire warm up lap and rolling start or taking grid position.

    - More options (views, selecting other cars, holding a view by holding a button etc) during replays and a deeper photo mode.

    - TV style information display (optional) during replays.

    - Kart, Career mode. There is no practice session before the main race! and the layout type isnt displayed anywhere until the loading screen when entering the event. So I had to enter the event, find out what the layout was then go back to the practice mode. Would be nice to have a pit in option during the prac but obviously closed for the race.

    - Race marshalls waving flags on track or at least the chequered flag and a safety car would be great.

    - High beam headlights

    - Multiple speeds for windscreen wipers

    Thanks!,

    SEIDO

    you can set the weather progression it to either sync to race or speed up to 30x before you go race by pressing R1/Conditions (if you're doing quick race weekend). not sure what you mean by real time as how would anyone know how fast the weather will change? what speed would real time be? sync to race spreads out the changes across your race.

    Ok so now I am in the Race Weekend event set up, conditions window. When I first entered that window and changed the weather to 4x slots it displayed the weather progression at Real Time. I then pressed left, it displayed like you said Sync To Race, then when I pressed right it now only allows me to select sync to race, 2x, 10x, 20x or 30x. Real Time has gone. In practice mode, it allows only Off, 2x, 10x, 20x and 30x
    So that's what I mean.
    Cheers

    Ps4. My mate also sighted it the first time I saw it.
    I think it's only there the first time entering that menu after starting the game, after that it doesn't show up.

    Car set ups. You should be able to access your global settings from inside the race and be able to edit and update them. Then be able save for a particular track or groups of tracks. I also see nowhere in the pits at a race you can select another saved track setting to apply to the track you are at.

    The whole way the game save settings or applies saved settings is very clunky and a PITA :-(

    Actually I don't think you have to reach 1000° to make them glow, if I'm not mistaken the brakes on the 12c GT3 were red around 600° just not as bright as higher temps

    Recently noticed that it's not posible to set a mandatory pitstop in an online lobby that is something tgat really should be posible.

  12. The Pagani Cinque. Brakes will start to glow but not very brightly around 600 - 1000 c, not sure. The highest temperatures are a little around or above 1913. You can't make the brakes hotter than that.

    I would quite like the AI to acknowledge blue flags in some capacity.

    Why the heck can't you change AI difficulty between say quali and race without coming out and going to calendar? Maybe I'm missing something.

    Multi-class racing.

    Seriously, my eyes lit up when I saw the option in the menu, but then the excitement began fading when I realised there were no other parameters to configure classes. I initially thought that the game would do this, by splitting the field up and placing me in a class with similar opponents, but then, discovering that 'multi-class' just meant historic touring cars competing against Clio cup cars resulted in furrowy- eyebrowed disappointment. Please SMS, add proper multi-class racing in a future update. Add a time handicap option too.

    I know it's been mention but the AI needs serious ajustments when it comes to giving the player room. Every time I try to pass they just run right into me like "oh didn't know you was there" it's frustrating and also they seriously need to lose grip when it rain. It's impossible to win a race against the AI in the rain. These need to seriously be worked on and put out in a future update ASAP.
     
  18. UM, That looks damn awsome. Why havent they put that in?

    that lens flare looks much better than the one they went for in the final game IMO. looks great, as does the actual sun. not too keen on the firey ball as it stands now, especially when you look at it through the windscreen strip that some cars have (such as the M1). looks really pixellated due to the low-res nature of said strip.

    This will probably not get many likes, but I love Formula Gulf. I am sure many people love Formula A, B, C, or LMP, or any of the other fantastic groups.

    In career mode I can play Formula Gulf on the Dubai tracks. Thats it.

    In Renault Clio Cup I get to drive around all the fantastic British tracks. Thats it.

    In Solo play I know I can take any car on any track for a quick weekend, with practice , qualify 1, qualify 2, race.

    How cool would it be to be able to select Renault clio cup championship with Formula (Gulf or A, B or C) cars instead of the Clios. Or maybe the GT4 cars in the endurance season instead of the LMPs. No need to spend hours making massive rule setups. Just choose a group (or several groups?) and a group of championship courses already defined, with championship rules, presto ! :instant championship! (with the same rule as the career chamionships i.e. mandatory pitstops etc.)

    How about a set of rules, a set of tracks, then a group of cars (or multi groups).

    Ce qu'il manque dans project cars ,c'est le chat dans les salons quand on a pas de micro , le classement des adversaires sur la droite de l'ecran pendant la course , le drapeaux des pays des joueurs dans les salons. Et acceder aux salons des amis facilement au moment de la connexion sur la ps4

    It's probably been mentioned somewhere on the forums (sorry haven't got time to read all)
    but timed races should be an option for the single player enduros and any race held online.

    Of course we would love to see a Lambo or Ferrari, but I know all too well.

    Oh and the full Nurburgring 24hr layout would be icing!

    Cheers

    Maybe if we all buy multiple copies of the game Ian Bell will be able to afford a Huracán in time for PCars 2 :lol:

    [Apologies for the double post, this is due to a much needed mod edit as some posts were deleted in the interim.]

    Here are a couple of hopefully easy to implement tweaks that would improve my game experience and perhaps that of others.

    1) On consoles, please consider implementing a fix so that the right and left shoulder buttons respectively increment and decrement menu values by one. Units of ten are too coarse.

    2) For we n00bs that still use the racing line how about a corners-only option so that only the acceleration and braking arrows are visible and track straights are freer of visual clutter? Right now the only game I've seen that offers this feature is Forza.

    UKMikey, your first point is a great one.
    It reminds of what I had been thinking, the same for the time rate, time start and weather rate (free practice and online only seem to offer, off or 2x and higher)

    Please add some more real-life liveries, or try and get more sponsorship clearances so you can replace the fictional liveries with, pseudo-realistic liveries, i.e. liveries that don't exist in real life, but uses real sponsorship decals. I'm starting to get sick of the fictional sponsor decals. They remind me of this:

    How about an option to link time dependent options such as tyre wear and day/night/weather progression to the length of the race? 50% race length could automatically result in 2× everything else for those of us too lazy to set everything ourselves for example. Just a suggestion.

    Day/night/weather transitions are accelerated in career endurance races.
    I reduced the 25hrs Bathurst race to 6 hours and had the full day/night/day transition.
