I really missed few things in this great game:

1. Total milleage counter and number of driven kilometers in each car.
2. Better pit stops with mechanics.
3. Creating own championships.

Thats all. And You? What could you add?

Sorry my English!

Hey Heymi!

Just want to point you to your Driver Network Profile
It can be found on in-game home page. It provides various statistics about your current profile such as total hours played, favourite vehicle specialisation and favourite country INCLUDING your total distance traveled in these favourites. While it doesn't show you your distance in EVERY vehicle, it is neat none the less.


Hope that helps!
Conor :)

I don't know what content is 'missing', in terms of being removed, but in terms of content that is absent and would like to see:

1 - Safety cars, single player and multiplayer.
2 - Formation Laps.
3 - Co-Op Career and/or larger grid sizes for AI online.
4 - Detailed pits and animations associated with them. (Always just seems to be a single guy standing there).

Full pitstop animations are on the way:) Soon.
You can change Imperial to Metrics in Options-->Settings

That's good to know. Pits look a bit bland at the moment, good to know it should be getting updated soon. :)

Hey reardelt.
I'm 100% sure if this will change your Driver Network Profile values but there is definitely an Imperial/Metric setting in the Gameplay tab of the Options Menu :)

...and larger grid size are rather out of option because of the garage spaces. y are maxed out per track basis. Use Nordshleife, LeMans or Monza. Plenty of cars can race there.

I know this is the case for single player, but I'm more so talking in relation to multiplayer. You can only have a maximum mixture of players and AI of 16, on consoles, which isn't really that exciting, especially for events like LeMans where it's over 50 cars in reality. I realize having 40+ players is unrealistic, but perhaps allowing more AI in online sessions would be welcomed?

In cockpit/dashboard view when driving (for some cars) you can see the odometer.

It would be nice if we can chose a helmet design. In every race I drive in career mode appears a diferent one. I'm not talking about a complete editor OFC, only with an option to choose one of the existing helmets the racing experience will be more realistic.

voice chat is missing on pc version. random pickup races, we can't communicate while racing. who the F wants to type?! and no teamspeak/vent/mumble is not the solution when racing with pubs.

also I need to be able to control my car in the pits.

proper triple screen support.... i mean how in the world did they work on it for 4 years and give this type of crappy triple screen support on pc... need separate screen rendering asap... you can't even see out the right window of the car with current taking single screen image and stretching across 3 screens. NO excuse a racing sim doesn't have it. your competition assetto corsa does...even way before launch...wayyyyyy before...and the game got no kind of funding like pcars. hell even dirt rally which is in ALPHA has better support!

main feature i want that i havent been able to get an answer for:

i got the impression that past (& maybe future? (forecast)) weather is going to be available. right now i can do realtime. but when i tried this morning i noticed it pulled the weather conditions but not the temperatures, which were artificially high.

so my question is will we be able to grab temperatures along with weather conditions?

There doesn't appear to be a photo mode available for replays. If so then that's a surprise and is definitely a suggestion I'd put forward.

Limitations on consoles are due to amount of memory available vs performance. Each additional AI car adds an additional load to the process. One of those 'Can't have your cake and eat it too." type situations sadly.

Been suggested and noted on the WMD forums for at least a year now. :)
Also suggested and noted for replay system, manual control of trackside cameras, more controls over which car you're focused on, and timing info. Basically like the 'Monitor Race' controls you see available during a live session(SP or MP).
Patience is key here. Somethings just could not be scheduled to be finished before release.

Yeah, I understand, should have noted that in my post about time constraints.

Still, there aren't many games that are continually worked on in terms of content. Most would just release patches to fix things and that's it. It'll be interesting to see what additions come over the next year to Project Cars.

Some exciting additions coming down the pipe to be sure. :)

A friends list in Time Trial mode is a must!! It's a pretty basic feature of most racing games

Could this be made a sticky topic perhaps? Just remembered that I posted about a free camera in Photo Mode in another topic (the suggestions one). Would certainly be easier if we knew there was one topic for suggestions.

Needs a Gifting system for tuning setups. Considering there's well over 60 tuning options, its painful to have to tell someone the complete setup rather than gifting it.

Also, a Club/Teams Lounge. Pretty happy with how the game currently is though!

Some way of console users uploading saved photos.

For the moment, can a console user get saved photos with a USB stick?

For the love of god , please, please have custom grids for PCars2 .
I love a reversed grid but out of a full grid only a few guys can do it without smashing into each other .....give us the option , please

Custom grid would be the ideal solution for setting up proper multiclass races in solo mode.
