What one thing have you always wanted in a racing game?

Oh and don't say naked ladies!

For me the one thing I've most wanted to see in a racing game more than anything else, well anything else that was not already there, is long term memory of skid marks. Put simply, I want to be able to see major skid marks being remembered over entire race weekends. I want to be racing on race day and see huge skid marks from a major off that I or someone else had in maybe practice 1 or 2.

Atmosphere, and I'm serous, no body has injected it fully into there game, grid 1 and possibly the the F1 titles have done quite well here but every racing title I've played since its been missing even PCars doesn't have it nailed.

I love this game don't get me wrong but and I've said this before the Sp career for me feels hollow and flat.

Custom championships!

Such a small detail, but is missed from many, many race games, simple way to keep longevity in the game.

true,the driving is amazing but the commitment to a car or team seems to be missing,and oh yeah grid 1,what a game,every sponsor earned was a victory

And race completion, at the end of the race I'd like to be able to drive back to the box and take my podium ( if earnt) it's just the little things that make a game more realistic.

What I really want is real life upgrading. Having the possibility to choose from a hundred of different engine / suspension / drive train / aero parts. And I really mean hundreds!
Some of of them fit your car, some of them don't. And even if they fit, you'll have to figure them out, which ones can go together and really enhance your car.
If you don't, you can end up with a total riced up and undriveable wreck. Or, if you're good, you can turn an 200 hp Toyota 86GT into a 500+ hp track day beast that will rip up every track and opponent. But only, if every part fits, plays along with the other parts.

That would be my dream...

That's sort of already in the game, you mark the barriers if you make contact with them, which is something I've never seen in a racing game before.

Invincible

No in Forza it is way too simple and easy. I want it more techtechnical. So that for example the pistons have to match the conrods, and they have to fit crankshaft. If you have changed those, you'll have to replace the valves and the camshafts too. When you want to build a turbo, you will need to set the compression accordingly. Every single part that doesn't fit good can blow your engine.

P75
29-05-2015, 10:01
I can only choose a single thing? Hard to choose because there are so many things I think the game lacks, that will all add to a greater sense of immersion. If I can only pick one, It would have to be a full-fledged flag system with animated flag marshalls and AI that pay attention to them.

I've also thought a track designer could be pretty cool for community sharing.

And a big one from a past of playing Grand Prix management games on the PC, manage a team and race for them.

A management / oversight / framework system for competition like iracing has melded with a better race sim. I did iracing for several years and while their racing framework is top notch, the feel of the simulation is like racing on glass. Pcars feels better, so meld those two and you'll have something great. That and a proper damage model where my car would be seriously messed up if I hit a wall at 150mph vs driving off like nothing happened.

I want to be racing on race day and see huge skid marks from a major off that I or someone else had in maybe practice 1 or 2.

Skid marks? Well I was tempted but I won't since I never have them.

Seriously, in career mode: a realistic crash/damage model (PCars is more realistic in some respects than F1 games, though the bulldozer under the car in front at the start grid is not - more likely to launch over it ); crash rescues/car recovery while the safety car is out; restarts from pit lane after a red flag; engine fires; pit lane errors such as loose tyres. On the subject of fire, always a risk especially when you have refueling allowed in a race, I have no idea whether it is already in the game.

Full simulation of a race weekend from a damage perspective.

I would love to see a racing simulation where damages can impact the entire race weekend. i.e. you crash the car in practice, depending on the amount of damage you lose the ability to continue in the practice sessions and could lose the ability to race depending on the type of damage. Running the car on the ragged edge during qualifying could hurt the reliability of the engine for the race. Also along with tire management, as in the number of tires you have per race weekend.

One of the things I have always thought would be cool but have never saw in a racing game is an option for online career mode. It would be the same as the basic career mode but would allow your friends to join in and drive the race with you in place of one of the AI opponents. I think that could be rather interesting, more difficult and rewarding.

Yes. Only way for longevity of the game is online racing. Lots of trax means too many to master, therefore races are too hit and miss. Custom championships with the ability to change trax every so often much better.

This may be a little thing but... What one thing have you always wanted in a racing game? Well, to be able to stop the car and get out of it. Then you have a first person view as the driver and can walk around the vehicle, take photos, walk around the circuit, pits, etc. You also can return to your car and cotinue driving :)

Yea I wana see that group of yellow barrels at the start of the pit lane at Willow Springs explode when you hit them as I think they may be full of water in real life.

I would say two things,

1. Ability to create custom championships.
2. Total immersion and atmosphere inc. pit crews, mechanics etc in the pits, marshals on the track who are animated, waving flags and enter the track to remove broken cars and debris, TV crews, helicopters, spectators with flags, camera flashes, air horns, track commentary, warm up laps inc. forming of the grid, and as much live atmosphere as possible. Just look at Codemasters F1 games, GP4 and GTR2.

Ok I will, You are a pedant.

I have driven real tracks in real cars and get a huge buzz from it (I've probably done more laps round Dunsfold than anyone posting here unless Mr Collins posts under a psudonym) but occasionally In the right circumstances I have found the same zone racing online. It can be done.

btw I am not talking about the adrenalin charge of getting out of a situation alive, just the ZONE.

AI that can be customized in game or with ini tweaks for each individual AI driver that controls variables such as aggression, skill level min-max, consistency, corner speed, acceleration, top speed, braking ability, ability to pass, etc.

Speaking as a console user, the ability to edit more stuff. Choose your opponents, make your own championship series from the options in the game, edit the paintwork on your car AND your opposition cars, choose a points system, race format, blah blah - basically, in something like FIFA you can edit just about every aspect of your team, other teams and the competitions you compete in, that freedom has rarely been there in console racers.

Closest so far are maybe Grid Autosport and PCars - but PC is a real case of 'so near yet so far'.

I really wanted to find out if at all we could create a custom championship with our consoles? I have xbox one and would like, no LOVE the ability to choose for example GT4 or GT3 and then choose multiple tracks and set the weather for like 8 races. I KNOW you can do this one race at a time in quick race but I would love to be able to choose 6-10 tracks for a simulated season championship. Is there any way to do this on xbox one? It would be greatly appreciated.

Oh and BTW does anyone know what happened to the box below quick race? It just disappeared like the developer was thinking about adding something and then decided not to.

A game that doesn't have a catch to it. There is allways something we have to over look to play in every game. In project cars we have to ignore that it seems pretty weird not have a correct field of cars with gt and lmp cars on the track at the same time. Thats is a pretty big blow to the realistic feeling. Infact, I would be so bold to say its the exact opposite.

Try the Crew Chief app. It does all of that.

What I'd like to see is full endurance races with online driver swaps.
There is nothing like getting a team together to plan a strategy for a 24 hour race and then doing the race.
Chatting in TS, reacting to issues like the next driver is still asleep and needs to be on track in 10 mins, etc.

A laser scanned Isle of Man TT circuit with real weather read from Met Office real time data....

Also a version of the same track from the 60's or 70's with some historic cars to race on....

Maybe also some zombies.... :P ......seems like the isle of man with cars would be just a follow the car in front of you until you decide to kill him by trying to get by kind of race

Large open-world combined with realistic physics. I love the basic idea of games like TDU and Forza Horizon, but they're absolutely useless and meaningless to me without top notch physics simulation. To be honest given the option to just drive around on well done mountain roads etc. in an open world with maybe even just 10-20 cars, with friends and just pick our own routes and see if you can keep up through a specific bit etc. vs. all racing cars on all racing track ever through history, I'd go for the open-world with a couple of cars.

Well, unless "all racing tracks" theoretically included "all rally stages" as well, then it'd be a tougher choice. =)

Id love if project cars had

Drag Racing
Drag bike racingI'd partially be interested in drag racing as well, but IMO to do drag racing really well there'd have to be a whole new sub-game included: Engine tweaking. So much of drag racing is based on not the driving, but setting up the car perfectly for the prevailing weather conditions, that I think any drag racing game that only featured the act of driving would be quarter-assed at best... =/

You can have very civilized, high pace and high action but no contact races even on narrow and twisty mountain roads (loved to do that in rFactor) if you're with people who play fair and avoid contact like they should (and would in real life). With randoms though it wouldn't really pan out.

I've always wanted to see a fully fleshed out realistic dynamic damage model. And to compliment that, realistic pit stop lengths.

If I've broken a steering arm and peeled the guard the pit stop should be longer than 5 seconds. My mistakes (or bad luck) should disadvantage me properly.

As much as I love pcars, I hate that I can launch an open wheeler off the kerbs and have it land without any damage. Or with tin tops where I can have wheel to wheel contact with the entire field and end up with little to no steering damage.

Actually, should also add to that proper mechanical failures. I feel there's too many tunes getting around that should be causing engines to grenade in the longer or hotter races

This times all of my yes.

I wouldn't require knife-edge physics for something like this, but something like PCARS or AC physics in an open-world enviroment would suit me.

A race engineer that can do my setup..i hate doing setups and never understood why all racing games are made in a way that you need to do your setup to even beat the AI at hardest settings..

Or at least help you with your setup and point you in right direction. As I've said before sims could be a lot more educational. For example race engineer can provide general advice with being too specific... "Try stiffening your suspension to improve your laptime", "your gearing is too long for this circuit", "Try moving the brake bias more towards the front" etc etc

My wish is Ghost Mode racing as an available option so that collisions, poor driving etiquette, mistakes that take another driver out just won't matter.....

A lot of things allready said.
for me it would be atmosphere as well. but creating digital atmosphere has always been a problem. (fifa cant create a real stadiums atmosphere as F1 cant do it with racetracks) people who went to F1 races or visit soccermatches regularly know what im talking about.
nice things for pcars2 that would improve this for me would be: Animated Pitcrew, animated marshalls, animated flags (or lights as in F1), a guy with a checkered flag, a real podium ceremony, a safety car, multiclass series.. oh and tracks that dont dry in a minute after rain stopped.

for online next to custom championships i would like a sort of carrousel system like in GT. (fixed car classes or types, fixed setups, max 5 laps changing classes and tracks every race)

The ability to add your own car / motorcycle to a racing game. Drive it into a special garage, have it laserscanned and it will magically appear in your game - with every scratch and dent and the correct performance it has IRL too.

But that's daydreaming :p
